Recent guest reviews

Been in this hotel many times and still love it even though everybody says the room is very small. The cleanliness is 2 thumbs up. They also provide coffee and tea. The location is super good, just right next to food hawker and in front of bus station.

Hotel is located in a quite accessible place to public transport,15 minutes walk from novina station. if you get a taxi it only cost less than SG$5.00. There is a food court just a minute walk away from the hotel which opens till late night.Staff was very helpful, specially MS Shanthi,she was amazing ,always greeting with her beautiful smile with friendly but professional attitude. The room was too small.Specially the bath room is too tiny.there was no any shower curtain/cubicle. when you have a shower whole bathroom get wet including the commode

We just stay in this hotel just for one night. For transit acctually. The location not easy to find if you came from Novena station. Need 20 minutes walk at least up and down to reach the location. Also not everyone know this hotel. But if you want to go everywhere FROM this hotel is convinence enough because there is a bus stop beside the hotel. Just take bus # 131 or 29 to velocity mall which connect to Novena station. But I dont know the opposite way. The only covinience just there are fruit store and local food court just around the corner. The hotel quite small. Just small reception at the lobby. As well as the bed room and bath room. The single bed so small. Maybe less than the standart size. We dont have enough space to open our small baggage.. Cleanliness can be acceptef and the staff very friendly

Fragrance hotel Ballister Rd. Value for money not a huge room, but neat clean and functional. Bus to central Singapore stops outside this place, and there is a large hawkers food hall next door. Reception staff great

I stayed here for one night only before I went on a cruise with my friends. The hotel bedroom and bathroom is very small even only for the 2 of us. It's more like a motel than a hotel. But for staying 11 hours is not too bad because it's quite clean and cheap. I paid S $68 per night. I took Uber from Changi airport to this hotel cost S $18.80. Around the hotel is a lot of places to eat. Overall is not a bad place to stay if only for a short stay.

A shuttle bus from the airport brought me to the hotel, and Santhi who was at the Reception was EXCELLENT in making us comfortable immediately. My kids looked forward to meeting Santhi every night for the 9 nights we were there. She was exceptional at her job! The room was definitely small, but comfortable. I would recommend a triple room for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) as the double room was quite a squeeze in the nights. It had clean fresh towels daily, toothbrushes daily, coffee and tea daily, hot water kettle, 2 small bottles of water daily, blow dryer and TV that had about 2 good channels to keep the kids occupied. Also, great hot water shower!!!! and good AC!!! They stop cleaning the rooms at roughly about 12pm so if you sleep in, you might miss it, but we didn't have a problem, we arranged the beds ourself later and called up for clean towels in the night :D Santhi also did call me to wake me up on certain days when requested so that I did not miss my excursion :D **They did clean the toilets with liquid bleach, which they didn't wash off well, which in turn ruined my son's shorts completely. The hotel has a bus stand right next to it to the left. To the right you have a food court, and a few 7 Elevens. Nearly opposite, you have Shaw Plaza that has Mc Donalds :) to the left when you walk about 30 metres there is a really nice restaurant that serves good clean food and has some lovely welcoming staff. About 150- 200 metres to the right of the hotel, there is a place to wash clothes. It's called "Quick Wash" if I am not mistaken. It costs about 12-15 dollars to was a full load of 8 kilos AND dry it in the dryer. They have clean bags to take the clothes back in, plus you don't ned washing powder, it comes with the wash. The staff were very helpful in getting us a "Grab' (like an Uber) to get to the airport and it cost only about 22 dollars. All in all, an EXCELLENT stay and I will recommend it to anyone for sure!!!!!!

We realised we had booked room at the other branch of Fragrance hotel. We wanted the one with mini fridge. We called to inform the front desk that we would like to check out and moved to different hotel. The front desk went beyond to help us to find room with mini fridge within their property. We didn’t have to cancel our booking but just need to top up a bit more for family room at the other branch. We really appreciate the kind help and advices.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over the weekend. We got an amazingly cheap rate of $60 per room per night. Gold! We are a family of 4 with two little girls. The hotel doesn't have interconnecting rooms but we were allocated two rooms opposite each other and simply had one child with each adult. Worked well for a cheap weekend in Singapore with the kids (we were en route back to Perth after a luxury week at Bintan Island). The hotel itself is simple and small - there are no bells and whistles. But it is pleasant and very clean and surprisingly was in a great location. Not close to a MRT but we just caught taxis most places and it was fine. We were in Singapore to see the sights and take the kids to the zoo and Chinatown not hang out in the hotel. As other reviews have mentioned the bathroom was an odd setup and water from the shower does go everywhere but we didn't mind this for a couple days and simply asked for extra towels to mop up which were gladly handed out by reception staff. Staff were kind and helpful and pleasant and check in was efficient. Beds were firm but comfortable and surprisingly amenities like a kettle and toothbrushes and toothpaste were provided. Good air conditioning and wifi. There is a lift in the hotel. They don't mind holding bags for you if you check in early or checkout and want to come back later. Not a far walk to places to eat including McDonalds and KFC and local hawker markets too. The little shop next door sold fruit salads (great when travelling with kids!) and there's a 7/11 and cinema in walking distance also. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

A $9 shuttle fare from Changi brought me to the hotel door but could also be easy accessible by public transportation, there are many stores and services within walking distance. The room was on the 2nd floor and was quite clean, it had a hair dryer, coffee/tea maker, TV, A/C and complementary bottled water, however the room felt so cramped. Had no place to put my backpack w Have to mention that the staff was very helpful; got plenty of information from both receptionists. They were always smiling and made my stay more pleasant. I recommend this for those looking for a simple and proper hotel.

Came here after a long flight from San Francisco. The hotel really easy to find. It cost me $19 from airport by uber (uber x not pool) The receptionist was friendly and helpful. I got Faith, Anthony and 1 guy sorry forgot the name who helped to assist me and show me directions. the room is quite small, but clean and near. The housekeeper clean it everyday, she even wipe the floor below my big luggage! Amenities like shower cap, tissue, shower cap, etc are available as well as coffee and tea. Hairdryer was too slow.. and the wifi too. Hawcker food, mini market like 7/11 are nearby the hotel. Bus stop just infront of the hotel no.130.
