Let's start with the most important feature of this hotel: the price. Compared to most Singapore hotels, the Fragrance hotels are very affordable, and the Ruby hotel is no exception. However, the low price comes with a few downsides: the location is not optimal (though the Geylang street is fun to walk, there are plenty of food options around and...

Small rooms with tiny bathroom, but affordable for traveler on budget. Neighborhood active 24 hours and easy to find food and shop. Quite manageable. Staff are friendly and helpful with information. Overall good. Rooms should be improved though.

The beds are not comfortable. The rooms are small boxes. Rooms are very well dated. The noisey neighbours are terrible and you have to tell them off every night. There is no fridge in the room. Breakfast you can get down at the corner and it is in the red light district. Would not recommend or book here again.

I stayed at this property with my family for two nights. Very friendly staff and they were prepared to provide lots of useful information. Room size is small but spotless. Around the hotel there are plenty of places to eat. Worth the money I spent for two nights.

4 years ago I stayed at Chinatown so this time I wanted something different and low-cost and found this lovely place. The staff was quick and helpful, the check-in/out was super fast and efficient. The room was small but we only spent the night there so it was okay. Complimentary goods are a lot, like they give you 3 bottles...

Booked for 2 nights the hotel was good value and very clean just what we needed. Getting from the airport was easy as its near a MRT station & to get into the city is about 10 mins on the same MRT line.

Where to begin? Well, the hotel was not hard to find at all. Costs around 30 Singaporean bucks by cab from Changi and we checked in around midnight on the 19th December 2016. The staff was fine. However, the elevators were quite old and they looked like they could stop working anytime! The room we got was also quite small...

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
