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.More
