Just wanted to share my top of mind about Fragrance Hotel Bugis. If you are a type of person who needs only a place to sleep at night when visiting Singapore then this hotel may be for you. I find the rooms clean although only a handful of rooms have a window because of the structure of the building (sandwhiched between two buildings). Rooms in front will give you a view of middle street and adjacent properties, rooms at the back will give you a view of buildings at the back of the hotel. You may want to find out from the hotel if they can assign you a room with a window before finalizing your reservation -- if it is important to you. The two rooms that has windows that were assigned to us only has a bed good for two persons.

Location is convenient, if you need something a 7-Eleven convenience store can be located at the ground floor of the building. It is quite near to the Bugis area (~5 minutes walk) where you can hop to the MRT to go to other parts of Singapore or to do shopping at Bugis Market or Bugis Junction.

Breakfast is complimentary, you will be given vouchers when you check-in. You have a choice of sausage, toast, asian noodles, steamed egg in the buffet line. If you are not a fan of these, I would recommend that you head to Bugis Junction where there is a food court on your way to the MRT to have other local choices such as Kaya Toast and Nasi Lemak.

For those whose hands are tied to the internet, you must note that internet is not complimentary and you must purchase hours in order to access the internet.

For groups of 5-7 heading to the Airport, a van is available to you at 45 SGD.

Room Tip: Ask for a window room before you book, rooms at the front will give you a better view.

We Knew this was a budget hotel, but it was awful. The rooms were terribly small, no windows, useless A/C. There s no shower recess, you just hose youreslf down standing next to the toilet,it was so small. The bed was disgustingly hard,like sleeping on a brick covered in plastic,the Doona had a lovely big cigarette burn in it. After complaining about it they said all the beds were the same !! Breakfast was very asian,so if you dont like that your left with toast and butter,and no knives to be seen anywhere. Do yourself a big favour and stay anywhere else but here

Room Tip: Dont choose one look for another motel,this one is rubbish

We went to Singapore with our daughters, a 6years old and a 5mths old baby. We had limited budget and can only afford something of not more than SGD120 per night. Our travel agent recommend this hotel, say it's clean (our priority since we are traveling with kids), 5mins walk toBugis MRT, within walking distance to the shopping haven (Bugis street, Bugis Junction), and eatery (albert hawker centre), SIN national library is just round the corner.

Check-in
We arrived at hotel around 1.50pm but was informed by the lady at the counter that the check-in is 3pm and they would not be able to give us the room key. (even though the rooms is ready/cleaned). We just waited at the lobby, chit-chatting with the other guests who were also waiting for the check in.

Room
Extremely small room, smallest room we had ever seen but we were fine with that. Might be good for sole traveler/couple, we should have requested for a family room though. Clean room/bed sheet. In room facilities: 28" flat screen tv, dressing table, a small wardrobe, electric kettle, hair dryer, 2 cups of drinking water, 2 sachets of instant coffee mix which they refill every day. Air con is functioning well. Too bad our room doesn't have windows.

Bathroom
Bathroom is only like 4ft x 4ft you basically have to sit on the toilet bowl to take your shower. Lol. Water heater is functioning and how i love the power shower after 1 long day outing.

Oh did i mentioned bus stop is just right in front of the hotel? I would recommend this hotel to everyone and will use them again on our next trip to SIN.

Room Tip: Stay further from the lift lobby.

I would not stay at this hotel again unless I was required to go to Singapore on a low budget. The hotel was clean and the location was very close to the downtown Marina area and SMRT. My first complaint was the room we stayed in had no window. The mattress was faux leather vinyl and the sheets would slip off by morning. The bathroom was a stall with toilet, shower and sink. You could not shower without getting the toilet seat wet. The hotel area was seedy (for Singapore) on the street in front of the hotel. The free breakfast was terrible.

Hotel was clean and quiet. Front desk staff were nice and helpful. Breakfast was included and was nothing to write home about, however it fuelled the tanks for our morning wonder around the local malls close by. Would stay again.
