We stayed here for 4 days recently. The location is totally unacceptable for us with 3 young children in tow. It was located in a slum area with mostly foreigners roaming around. There were suspicious activities happening as we had our breakfast at the opposite local mamak stall and I find it very unsafe with maybe-pimps sitting at back alleys and passing "packets" to at least 3 people before hiding something under the garbage bin.
We booked the family room with 1 double bed and 1 single bed, which were clean. But the floor was not carpeted at all so there were hair and it felt sticky to walk barefoot. There was no fridge to keep our drinks,, since there were no bars or cafe in the hotel. The room was infested with ants!
The bathroom was average, clean with enough complimentary toiletries. However , i must note that the bathroom tile was always clogged with hair.
The room was properly and conveniently air conditioned so no complaints in that department. There was ample parking space for guests too.
Service was average as we didnt get too use much of it anyway.

Room Tip: If you have more than 2 kids, the double bed in the family room can be significantly crowded.

Hotel has a good value for money. I stayed there with may wife and my 15 years old daughter.
Bussstation near the hotel (bus to and from subway station). Room is clean but under the bed was dust. Hotel was quiet. We had a room with a window. We stayed there for one week, and everything was ok. If I will ever have a second trip to Singapore i will stay in this cheap hotel again. Special thanks to Mr. Ong the very friendly desk manager in the lobby

Usually we stay in Fragrance at Joo Chiat cuz we just love that place, but due to the Hari Raya holidays, we had to make do with Fragrance Sapphire as Joo Chiat was booked out. We thought it would be bad, but to our surprise, the room was clean, spacious and fulfilled our needs. There is NO mini fridge though, so that sucks, but most else was good.

Didn't even mind the location which is really in the red light district, with suspicious activities and characters bouncing along come dusk. On the upside, it makes for some nice people watching. I wouldn't be worried about the area seriously, unless you are travelling with children. The nearest bus stop also has many buses that go to the city. The nearest MRT is about 15-20 minutes walk.

Oh ya we upgraded to..uhm was it deluxe(?) room and received free wifi, which to me was worth it. The bed however was right next to the wall, so that means if you were on the side of the wall, you'd have to scramble over your partner for the late night loo trip or sliding down the bed on your side. It wouldn't have been so bad if the dusty curtain wasn't in my face. Just wonder why it was set up like that when there was plenty of space.
Limited slots for carpark but we had bikepark everyday no problem. :)
All in all, they stay was ok, and we would stay here again if Joo Chiat is full.

I stayed here in September 2013 for a few hours as our bus arrived in early from Terrenganu and our main hotel wouldn't let us check in early. It's not glamorous or fancy but it was exactly what we needed, a cheap, clean hotel where we could grab a few hours sleep. The staff seemed nice too although we had very little interaction with them.

Ask for an upgrade to "Deluxe" room., they are a little bigger to similar priced accommodation in the area. Clean, central and good for cheap food. Only a 15 minute walk to MRT. they will also give you an extra 30 minutes for checkout if you ask.

We got a taxi from the airport which cost about s$20 and we were to,d by the taxi driver that this was a red light district!! We should have done our research before hand but we did not see anything like that when we did arrive only some dodgy drug dealings the first night. It's a very safe area more local than touristy with loads of convenient shops and food stalls.

As you first walk in to the hotel you are hit with a powerful fragrance which takes a bit of time to get used to. The staff are friendly even if they were with another customer they would always acknowledge you and let you know they would be with you in a moment. The rooms are clean but could be a bit better as we had hair in our shower drain when we arrived and other people's hair in the draws but overall it's a clean and fresh hotel the room is nicely decorated with a nice wash room attached. The man behind reception on most days called Ong was very helpful and always greeted you with a smile and couldn't go out of his way to help you ... For the price and the area it is definitely a good hotel and worth staying here if you are on a budget compared to other hotels in Singapore.
