Recent guest reviews

Stayed in this hotel for a day in Dec 17 with my family. Very nice hotel as their website says. All very clean and hygienic. Very polite staff. WARNING: this hotel is located in the red light area of Singapore. I didn't know this at the time of booking. So won't suggest this hotel to any and specifically families.

Was fine for two days only. The rooms were extremely small. Not at all like the ones shown in pics. breakfast not included. small insects were roaming about on the bed. There wasn't even a place to stand. No mini bar. No locker.

Was ok for a couple of days - no more. Room small. Bed hard, only 1 pillow. Absolutely no hot water the entire 3 nights. Paper thin walls so very noisy. Good aircon. Area may not suit some people but was ok for us. Walked to mrt station, was easy to use.

I was staying in Fragrance Sapphire Hotel on April 1-3, 2017. Was there for Coldplay's concert, why this hotel ? First, the location close to the National Stadium, and read some good reviews about this hotel. And, it happened to me, arrived in the hotel at 3PM and the receptionist upgrade my room into family room, yeay, i feel so lucky. Room, bed, and bath room are clean. One time, i need an iron to press my clothes, and they borrowed me and iron + iron table for free ! Location are close to shuttle bus, also minutes away from mrt station, surrounding with convenient stores, restaurants, and fruit's stores. A very recommended budget hotel in Singapore.

- Convenient location - in the middle of Aljunied & Kallang MRT Stations - very near bus station - Facilities is suitable for relaxing after a tired day - Near a lot of good restaurants in Gey Lang (frog porridge, chili crabs, dim sum, thai foods) - Small room - Unpleasant smell in lobby

After a year I stayed in this hotel again. Probably due to my platinum status on site. I have got an upgrade - more spacious room and I could checkin shortly after noon. Room was clean, AC working, bed very comfortable, coffee & tea making facilities. Internet is free for now - another good change from last year. Staff helpful and smiling. Im sure I will stay here again.

The room was a comfortable size and the beds were comfortable to sleep on. The TV had some good channels including a movie channel which was great for rainy nights. Although the room itself was pretty clean, there were lots of little ants in the bathroom. One day the room had been cleaned but they didn't replace the toilet paper. After we asked for it, it took about half an hour and another visit to front desk to get a new roll. The location was close to many bus stops and a walk 10-15 mins to two metro stations which were only a couple of stops away from main areas of the city. I would NOT suggest walking from the metro station to the hotel with your rolling luggage. Most restaurants and shops use the pavement for things so we had to keep switching from pavement to the road and back. The area, although a good general location, was pretty dodgy. There was some questionable selling going next to the hotel with some guys selling things off a bike to cars that would stop. However, no one approached us so as long as you just pass by, you'll be fine. There were many places to eat nearby and it is very close to a 7-11 and a couple of other small grocery shops. It was easy to get a taxi on the main road, saving you the fee for calling and booking a taxi, and it cost around $15 dollars to get to the airport at the time of day we went.

I have stayed in this hotel many times mainly because it suits my budget as a solo traveler. Don't expect 5-star luxury! The rooms are simple, clean, nice tv, complimentary water and coffee (kettle provided). Despite the Geylang area having a reputation as a red light district, it is very safe and crime is almost non-existent in Singapore. Within an 8-10 minute walk, you could get to either the Aljunied or Kallang MRT stations. You will never get hungry as plenty of restaurants and kopi tiams (cafes) are around with cheap, tasty, and hugh varieties of food.

Had a great stay. No problems at all. Bed was great. Shower was good. Room was a good dive for the price. Food below was excellent with a huge number of choices including western food. Staff helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

Its the perfect size room for the price you paid. Don't expect much, the lobby is small but the room is still pleasantly comfortable. It's clean and the bed is definitely comfortable. The neighborhood is not as great but the local food options are available :) Its definitely a good place to stay if you just want a place to sleep :)
