Location of the hotel is convenient enough. Has a coffeeshop and convenience store just next door. Not far from NEX. Promised Wi-fi is almost non-existent. Receptionist was not very friendly when we checked in. Noisy during the night with doors banging and people talking loudly.

This is an okay basic cheap hotel in the red light district. So it's fine if you are on a budget and not too fussy about the location. It was clean enough and the staff were helpful. If you would prefer not to stay here AVOID WOTIF MYSTERY HOTEL DEALS. I took the risk with a mystery deal that landed me this place, and was charged more than the regular listed price on Wotif's own listing. Wot a ripoff. After some painful communication with Wotif I was given a partial refund, but they ignored my request to cancel or change to a better hotel. It's unfortunate that the hotel will be reviewed unfavorably by disappointed guests like me when it's Wotif that should be copping the flack.

Thank you for your feedback. We would like to clarify that Wotif is our online travel agent partner who had featured the 'Mystery Hotel' deal in their hotel promotion, which is not managed directly by the hotel. If this request had been lodged by Wotif to our hotel, we would have allowed you to amend your stay to another of our Fragrance Hotel outlet, which might be subject to a fee upgrade, depending on the hotel location you had chosen.

Thank god I only stayed here for one night - I had just come back to Singapore from a sidetrip to Burma, and was heading back to the US the following day, and picked this place just as a location to crash for the night before my flight early the next morning. Mercifully this meant I only spent a total of like, 6 hours at this dump. The place is called the "fragrance hotel" and man did they live up to that name - the first room I was given smelled like cigarette smoke even though this property is purportedly non-smoking, and when I complained and was moved to a new room, it smelled sickly sweet like some sort of cheap perfume or something. Whatever, I figured. The bed felt like it was only a box spring, and was barely comfortable enough to get a few hours sleep on. I can't imagine what it would be like staying here multiple nights. Hallways were absolutely minute and tiny; with the housekeeping cart in the way I could barely get by. Staff was surprisingly decent; the only bright spot in an otherwise awful experience.

We had a pleasant stay here in Fragrance Kovan. The room was clean and neatly organised but the room is quite small for us and also there's window in the room. However the reception counter was friendly and helpful. We had a smooth and fast check in by the reception counter Liyana and ZhaoPeng. Their team work was wonderful. We would like to stay here again and if possible rooms with window for us next time? :-D Thanks..
