Fragrance Hotel - Ruby
Ranked #125 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 9 May 2017

We stayed here for a short trip to Singapore for some business needs.very good for that budget they even provided tea/coffee making facility in room for such a cheep price.

Room size - very small hard to move with luggage
Cleanness - very good changed beds and towels everyday and bathroom and room was very clean.
Staff- Reception was friendly and quick check in
Area - this hotel is right in the middle of garland ,but who cares ??? as long as you have plenty of places to eat and have a beer at the night ?
Nearest MRT - aljunied just a few min walk away.

overall a good place to stay if you are jut looking for a place to have a good hot water bath and comfy sleep.

Room Tip: No view as such all are same just get a upper floor room for a less noise.

The hotel was very clean and as I had a corner room (emergency stairs on one side) it was very quiet too. The rooms are small (no wardrobe) but not tiny as there was a shelf along the window with a stool. The bathroom was very small with the sink located outside of it but small touches like a curtain you can pull round the toilet shows attention to detail. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever I asked for information.

The location is very convenient (less than $23 from airport including nighttime surcharge) and less than 10 minutes walk from an mrt station. The fact it's in a red light district should not put you off. Between the station and the hotel that consists of one shop, a few bored looking hookers at night and people selling 'special pills' from street stalls. Nothing like a busy or seedy place. Food places nearby open 24 hours but are traditional Chinese with no English so you need to be happy to point to pictures.

I would definitely stay here again and I can't give any disadvantages at all as room size is not an issue for me.

Easy access to the hotel, if you take by public transport, you can transit bus service route 62,63,80,100,158 one bus stop distance from Aljunied MRT station.

Surrounding is "entertaining" place and eating place, you can get a cheap price food here. And if you like to go some attracting places, just take a bus from the same bus stop you alighting to the central area. Route 100 will pass more attracting places, and 51,63,80 will pass by Chinatown.

Room is so comfortable, wifi is strong, bathroom is tiny but enough and clean. But the sound proof is poor!

For the money I paid, I will say is valuable, and will visit again.

(Special thanks reception staff MR Ng served me in better with the smiling face)

We booked a twin knowing that Singapore hotel rooms tend to be on the small size but we're allocated a double on arrival and advised we would have to pay even more for the twin we'd already paid for. We accepted the double to find it probably the narrowest and shortest bed on our travels and at 5ft 5in even my feet stuck out the bottom.

The sheet just about covered the bed so with two of us in it meant an uncomfortable night of stealing the covers of the other and very little sleep. This was rectified on nights 2 and 3 as we asked for another blanket but not really acceptable in the first place.

The room is tiny so if like us with 2 large ruck sacks and 2 day sacks there is not much room left and that is with one side of the bed pushed against the wall.

Tea and coffee was provided in the room but only one tea bag and one coffee despite it being a double room.

The bathroom is a tiny wetroom with a shower curtain in the middle but little room for manoeuvre.

That said the room was clean, the staff were friendly and its in a good location for the MRT and great food stalls at the end of the road.

I would recommend for 1 night only for more than 1 person as it was somewhat claustrophobic by night 3
