“Value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

This is slightly better than a budget hotel , but don't expect 5 star facilities for the average USD70 to USD100 that u pay for a night. Rooms are very very very small but clean n comfortable. No windows , the largest thing in the room is the TV , but the programmes are very poor , only 8 channels available. Breadfast is simple and ok . Counter service and staff is ok. Location is excellent . Only negative matter is they advertised ' parking available ' but there was only 2 parking lots behind the Hotel. As I was driving from Kuala Lumpur , I was very lucky to get the parking ( after 6 hours later , after the other car left ) or else you have to park in the public parking ( about 100m away ) and pays SGD14 per day and placed 7 pieces of SGD2 parking sheets.Stayed for 2 nights , room mainly to rest n sleeps and shower.

Room Tip: Book a few weeks in advance and request for the end / corner room ( got windows ) but maybe may cos...

the only thing good about this hotel is location. room is amazingly small, no windows, nothing is like photos on agoda. there's something wrong with bed sheets, besides its dirty, it is too short for the bed! lucky i got 50% off price for the room, else it would be painful.

Room: 65% (The room is small of course, suits with the budget but they provide LCD TV)

Cleaningness: 80%

Service: 90% ( I book my room thru Agoda. I dunno if the systems problem or whose fault it is, I was told that they book my room was actually in Selegie. But the front desk staff help me to change back to Bugis)

Conveniency:
10 minutes slow walk to Iluma, Bugis Junction
15 minutes walk to City Hall
7/11 convenient store and a Chinese steamboat restaurant is just right next door of the hotel

Overall, nothing can be asked too much for this pricing at this type of superb location. Highly recommended. Locations is the priority for me when comes to choose a hotel. Especially you are on a trip of sightseeing or shopping. This is because after the whole day of travelling, it is best if no nid to walk too far back to hotel.

Room Tip: Take rooms with windows.

we were arriving late at night in singapore and leaving the next day. we also needed to be around the bugis area. fragrance bugis was the practical choice for us-- price-wise, location-wise, and convenience-wise.

we booked the triple room through their website. check-in took less than 5 minutes, which was a boon since we were tired. the staff were efficient and helpful.

although we arrived past 10 pm, there was a restaurant still open 2 or 3 doors from the hotel. a 7-11 outlet was just beside fragrance-bugis. softdrinks in can for s$1 were available at a dispensing machine on the street a minute away.

our room was simple but elegant, very clean, small but slightly more spacious than the rooms we've stayed in at fragrance emerald or fragrance selegie. it was definitely bigger than the room at explorer's inn in brisbane where we stayed the night before. there was cable tv, miniref, tea making facilities, free mineral water, closets, a vanity table with large mirror. the aircon worked fine. towels and toiletries were provided. the water pressure from the shower was steady, but the hot water was not sufficient. the water turned cold after several minutes.

buffet breakfast was filling, but there were not many choices.

train fare from the airport to bugis junction cost s$6 for 3 of us. taxi fare to the airport cost s$14, travel time less than 20 minutes.

I was in two minds whether to write a review for this hotel or not.

When you book a hotel under 'The Fragrance' brand you already know it is budget and expect the service and facilities accordingly.

However on this occasion I was dissapointed. The only redeming feature about this hotel is its location.

Knowing beforehand about this hotel having so few rooms with a window, I contacted the Reservations office and asked for one to be reserved. Despite having a print out of the email confirmation confirming that one had been reserved, they had none left - the explanation being that the Reservations Office had not passed the email on. Whether this is true or not I don't know.

I have stayed in windowless rooms before but try to avoid it as it resembles being in a tomb. Even though I'm only really using the room for sleeping, I still don't really like it.

The room whilst clean was cramped, the hot water lasted about a minute before it went cold. The wifi was almost useless and the bed gave me back ache.

The staff whilst pleasant weren't really interested in anything. The free breakfast was okay but I was already bored after the third day.

I would not stay here again and if you want a budget hotel under the same brand or price range opt for Fragrance Imperial, one MRT stop away or a 10 minute bus ride.
