Recent guest reviews

I first stayed at this hotel in 2014 and shared a room with one other adult and a teenager. There was a double bed and a single. It was a very small room but we were only staying for a few days and didn't spend much time in the room. It was sufficient enough for showering and sleeping. Not much room for all our luggage but we managed. The staff were very efficient, helpful and delightful. They also had very affordable internet access a rooftop pool and was neat and clean. It was very affordable for the 3 of us. My next stay was in 2015. I travelled with my mother this time and we stayed in a room with 2 single beds. My bed was fine but my mother said her bed was a bit hard. This room was a little larger but still on the small side. We managed to fit our luggage in though it was still a squeeze it was better than my previous room. I chose this hotel again because of my previous experience and because the staff were great and accommodating. My mother needed a fridge for her medication and they moved a mini bar fridge into our room to accommodate this. Also this time we utilised the breakfast deal they have with the downstairs bistro. There was a limited menu but it was nice to start the day with a pre-paid meal. Another plus is there is a 7/11 straight outside right next door to the hotel. We utilised this a lot on both trips. One of the major reasons for choosing this hotel was it's location. My mother couldn't walk very long distances due to her knees so we needed to be close to the MRT (train). Straight across the road was Clarke Quay Central and the MRT, also Starbucks! Being on a limited budget this hotel was perfect for both my stays and very close to lots of activities especially if you are visiting Santosa Island. China Town was not far either easy enough to walk too. There was plenty of great shops, markets and places all in walking distance. Clarke Quay is also a lovely place to explore with river cruises, shopping and night life. If space is not an issue and you just need a safe and friendly place to come back to refresh and rest then this is a great option.

The Fragrance hotel is in a great location within Clarke Quay, The hotel itself is pretty good, service is excellent as anything you need advice on the staff in this place is more then welcome to a company you on. The two members of staff in particular, Amirah & Sania have been excellent.. They provide very good customer service and male you feel welcome when you are staying here.. they have also helped in every way way possible in guiding my party into having the best singapore experience.

A great little hotel in Clarke quay, fantastically close to Clarke quay station and easy to walk to boat quay and Raffles. You MUST get a better room which I think is the executive as the rooms are super small. But the air con is good and the whole place smells really nice. Breakfast is a bit manic as it's in the cafe next door, choice is limited but it's made to order so fresh enough. This is a great, cheap place to stay for a couple of days to explore Singapore, excellent value for money as long as you book a better quality room, I believe the cheaper ones don't have windows.

We stayed here for 2 nights with my 2 year old kid and my cousin. The place was nice and clean though a bit small especially when you have a toddler with you. Nevertheless, it's still a comfortable place to stay when in Singapore. Transportation wise it is accessible to Clark Quay Train Station, you just walk few blocks approximately 5-10 minutes. You can find a convenience store just adjacent to the hotel entrance. The staffs were courteous even down to the housekeepers.

I was trying stay in this hotel (fragrance style) and i've got this hotel from browse in internet..lowest price in the heart of city in singapore (Clark Quay), very near from MRT station, Central quay mall and nice location to get food in 24 hour we need. The crew's are very nice..humble..speak english very wisely, and they can speak bahasa very good! The ladies reception was very nice..humble..and always helpful to us(me,wife and my son) The room very clean, local cellphone from hotel in our room..they gave me early check in before the checkin time should be.. Awesome hotel when you wanna stay in singapore...

This place is great for a budget stay being so close to the MRT makes getting around easy. We stayed on the pool level so our windows looked out to the pool. This was nice but need to be mindful of privacy if wanting some natural light. Rooms are small. Bathroom is like a wetroom. No problems at all really for a short stay but anything in the bathroom gets wet if not on the 1 towel shelf. A few extra hooks or shelves could go a long way for added comfort in the room. Small wardrobe with 4 hangers. When booking we'd asked for an adjoining room for us and the kids, ended up being 2 doors down but they did move us. Although we all had single beds and would have had to pay extra for the joining rooms with a double. Not sure how this worked when that's what we'd originally booked and paid for. Limited storage space if traveling with a few bags. But well worth staying here for location and price. Pool area only had 2 sun lounges. Many people including older couples sitting on the concrete floor.

The rooms are small. I guess that's how it is in Singapore. But the staff were very helpful and guided us well for our 2 day trip to Singapore. The three important USPs of this hotel are: 1. Location 2. Location 3. Location Just one advice to travelers please carry your own water bottle. Because you will be provided only 2 bottles of 200 ml of water for 2 people .

Sorry folks this hotel does not rate well with me. Firstly be very careful when booking unseen. The Superior room was windowless, very small, poor lighting, tiny area to hang clothes, bathroom had a drop down from main floor as it was primarily a wet room, no shower screen/curtain so everything got wet.... Just too small for an older couple, maybe OK for a single person. If any doubts about being Claustrophobic don't book this hotel it is not for you ( or me)

Good hotel, centrally located, near by mall and restaurants, French theme dining step from hotel, easy access to near by sites by public transportation which was easy to use. Would stay at hotel again, roof top pool was awesome.

As it's a central city centre hotel it is very good value. The bedroom was really small it just fitted a doubke bed with a little soace around it. The bathroom/toilet was a wet room in fact it was possible to sit on the toilet and shower at the same time. A bonus was the roof top pool. The location of the hotel is ideal placement for local attractions. Chinatown is very close but and is a must to visit, sample the street food really good value.
