Fragrance Hotel - Bugis
Ranked #178 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 17 March 2012

We stayed here as part of my company's cost cutting business trip. The hotel is actually an intermediate lot of a high rise 'shophouse' (land is scarce in Singapore!). It's quite a small narrow hotel. The reception was good & there was 3-4 computers nearby for paid Internet. No free Wifi here. The interior deco of the hotel was chic stylish. Outside looks plain though. I stayed in a double bedroom. No windows, the room was small but very clean & modern with a flat screen TV hanging above. Coffee & tea provided. I can't remember if there was a minibar.

For the money we paid (if i remembered correctly <$90/night) it was well worth it. Breakfast was provided (2 coupons for each room). Breakfast was basic Chinese style fried rice or fried noodle + toast bread with margarine & sausages. The breakfast menu rotates each day. Rooms cleaned everyday & the staff (reception & cleaners) are friendly. 1-2 of them were from Sarawak (my home).

Location wise it is good located close to Bugis Street (a shopping place, lots of souvenirs to bring back home). Eating out was cheap as there were many hawkers centres nearby, I had a Char Siu Rice (Pork rice) for only $2 (RM4.80)! This is cheaper than Malaysia, minimum RM5. There are many places to sample food in all 4 directions.

In a nutshell, this hotel is really worth 100% your money spent. It's clean & cosy & sleep was good although I could hear some conversation for a short duration(at 'low volume'). I definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Singapore.

Recommendation: Management please provide free Wifi.

Room Tip: My room was windowless. The rooms with windows are facing the road in front, not much of a sight.

Nice and clean rooms at nice location in Bugis. Rooms are really small though, but rooms seems to be in general in Singapore. Location is good, close to MRT or possible to walk to most locations in city. Good value for beeing in Singapore.

I booked this hotel via agoda with discount price. While Checking in to this hotel, the reception informed that they were unable to offer the room for us due to "air-cons not function" at one of the floor. Then they bearred for the taxi fares and sent us till Fragrance Imperial, however the reception told the same reason, and asked us moved to nearby branch Fragrance Lavender. Just feel like get cheated by Agoda & Fragrance that get the booking and push to those not popular branch to gain more business.
The room is clean but smell smoky.

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...
