Worth staying, will back again”
It was very pleasant staying at fragrance oasis, i think it is one of the best among all fragrance hotel in sg. Room is small but very clean and comfy. I love the shower. Water is very swift. Very suitable for couple or business travellers. Bus stop just in front of hotel, will take you to nearest mrt station novena or toa payoh. I will definitely come back to this hotel if i visit singapore again.
Really Clean Hotel and Friendly Staff”
this is my first time to stay in fragrance hotel oasis and with the price i paid for, i must say it's definitely worth my hard earned money. the hotel staff in the lobby were nice, the room we stayed at was clean, the airconditioner was also good, and was actually really cold. the location was the best selling point for this hotel, it's right beside a bus station, and near shaw mall, a hawker food court, boon tong kee and loy kee best chicken rice. i suggest you visit these 2 restaurants since they are well known for the best roast chicken in singapore. loy kee's fried wanton is a must-try! it would've been nicer if this hotel has a free internet connection/wifi and maybe they should improve the quality of their bed sheets.
Exceptionally clean hotel on great location”
we stayed at fragrance hotel-oasis for 4 days and 3 nights and we never encountered inconveniences, even the slightest ones. the place is walking distance to novena mrt station and to several restaurants offering singapore's best chicken rice. there is also a park near the hotel where we stayed for hours relaxing and enjoying the view. the service was also great. the front desk officer is a filipina and she was very accommodating. thank you jonalyn, can't help but mention your name here. we will definitely stay at this hotel again on our next singapore trip.
I really can't believe reviews i've read here before our tour. they said the blankets are thins, rooms are very small, etc. but for us everything was just perfectly right including the price we paid for it. we went to Singapore for a 4days 3nights vacation. we arrive at the hotel at around 1pm and the receptionist was very courteous and accommodating. he suggest us to leave our bags first while waiting for check-in time at 3pm. he was very smiling face and approachable the whole time of our stay there. well, the rooms are not small. it was just right for a couple, plus we're not even staying all day inside our rooms so who cares. the blankets are not too thin, and you have all the power to adjust the air-conditioning of the room so if you think its too cold you may just turn it off. the hotel doesn't have foods/beverage to sell so they told us it's okay to bring foods upstairs except for durian. Singapore is a non-smoking place, you can't just smoke everywhere but they put designated area for smoking and you'll find it in every bus stop. so, luckily since we are a smoking couple we find the bus stop beside the hotel very useful. you may want to visit street foods of chinatown, ride a bus on the bus stop opposite side of the hotel "bef balestier plaza" then alight to "maxwell". Chinatown has the cheapest souvenirs in SG plus in chinatown complex you'll find Hawkers food- their famous street food. also try soya milo and dessert corn in ice. if you'd visit sentosa ride " bef balestier plaza" and alight to "Vivo City" then buy 3dollar ticket to sentosa or just use your EZ paylink top-up card. We visited Universal studios and siloso beach there. we have enjoyed the new york streets of universal studios and the battleship ride. Siloso beach has a very short shoreline however they have the finest sand i've ever seen. You may also want to try HIPPO topless tour bus. Book online thru viator.com it's 20dollars only unlike if you'd book there you'll pay 27dollars.
Pleasant Stay at a Simple Hotel”
a very good stay seriously during myh first time in singapore. thanks to the fragrance hotel oasis. i like the fact that the place was located in balestier, one of the safest place in singapore and one of those very accessible to bus transportation. the hotel was actually located just beside a bus stop. the receptionists-- one of them a filipina-- were ver friendly and eager to chat with those staying in their hotel. i appreciated thier hospitality. the hotel was so clean up to the room assigned to me. what i love about my room is that it had window (some hotels don't have rooms that have windows) and that it is complete of amenities (soap, heater for the shower, free coffee and bottled water, and a very good wi-fi connection that however had to paid). all in all, i loved my stay at this branch of fragrance hotel and would love t go back here again next year.
Next isthe bus stop, easy for moving to Novena MRT”
I had a good time in Fragrance Hotel - Oasis with support from Vietnamese staff. She is very good and nice. Based on my experiences, you should take a taxi from Novena MRT to go there with your luggage. Saving time and convenient for you. This hotel is clean, twin room is bigger. The next is a food court. I had a good choice.
great service , acceptable location , clean ”
The staff of this hotel is quite nice.Even if we check out,they can help us to keep our bag at the hotel first as my flight is at the mid-night.The room is quite clean,but my room is without windows.The location is acceptable as we need to change for the bus after going to the Novena station.But,we near all the time take the bus rather than take the train,as the bus stop is just in front of the hotel.I will back to this hotel to stay if I go back to singapore for travelling again in the future. Fragrance Hotel-Oasis, I recommend it !
great value ... ”
We really love to stay at Fragrance Oasis. Friendly Customer Service greeted us with a huge smile and very helpful. The room is very clean. Bathroom is spacious enough, clean and nicely decorated. Very good value for money. Many food stalls and farmers market close by, they are open around 6 in the morning and close late at nite. So finding good food is not a problem. The closest MRT Station is Novena Station, which is about 15 min walk. However, it is easy to find a taxi or take a bus. Not to far away from Orchard Road. Love this place.
Compact, clean, and comfortable”
We've been in Singapore several times, most of the time we stayed in Bugis, Little India, or East Coast. We hesitated to stay here at first, seeing as we're not familiar with Balestier and Novena district. We're glad we stayed though. Right next to the hotel is the bus stop, where you can easily transfer to Novena MRT Station. In the vicinity of this hotel there are Balestier Market (houses lots of delicious hawker food), Rochor Beancurd House (open till 1 a.m.), Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice (open almost 24 hours), McD (open till 1 a.m.), and 7-Eleven. The only thing you should worry about is choosing what you'd like to eat now. Receptionists are very nice and polite, they helped us check in earlier and provided mask (there was smoke haze due to forest fires). The amenities are impressive for a 2-star hotel, such as coffee and premium tea, electric kettles, shower cap, and hair dryer. Housekeepers are nice and polite, too. We always find our room in perfect condition. The bathroom can be improved though, there was a small black mold spot on the inside of the bathroom door frame. All in all, it's well worth the price of the stay. We'll definitely stay here again.
Feels like home”
upon checking in the hotel, we felt comportable with the warm welcome from the receptionist. they are very accommodating in answering our queries and even suggest ways on how we can conveniently utilize their facilities. the total enviroment is clean and kid friendly. the size of the room is just right, it exceeds what we have expected. coming back to sg will sure check in again the fragrance hotel and will definitely recommed it to my friends.
fragranca oasis hotel, balestier road singapore”
My stay in Fragrance Oasis Hotel, Balestier Road, Singapore I am assigned to a 6 month attachment at a hospital in Novena area. I already have a room in a condominium in Balestier area, but needed a temporary place to stay nearby while the previous tenant moves out, and to move my things gradually. Besides, I have to get myself familiar with the area. From many hotels located at Balestier area, one of the nearest is the Fragrance Oasis Hotel, 435 Balestier road. I picked it based on info from the internet, through Agoda.com. I crossed my fingers, hope that what I'll see will not disappoint me, such as turning out to be unclean, reservation problems, etc, as I have experienced before through on-line booking. Fortunately it was just as I expected/pictured in the internet images. And the hotel employees were also nice. Me and my husband were quite happy and comfortable. We would come back and stay there during the time I'm staying in Singapore
The great hotel in the low price”
The hotel is quietly nice and comfort to the traveller that do the trip for the first time to Singapore. From changi airport you have to go to Novena MRT station by MRT. When i come to the Novena MRT station, it's really hard to find this hotel even the people around don't know where this hotel because of FRAGRANCE HOTEL is so many type in Belastier road. But, i have a tips for you to go to this Fragrance OASIS hotel when you arrive at Novena MRT station: 1. go up and cross the street to get the bus station. 2. Took the 21 or 131 (code of bus) that go to the belastier road. 3. don't forget to prepare your money around 1.10 dollars per person. 4. Stop to the bus stop that place in the front of 7 eleven store. 5. Then, cross the road and turn right. go straight around 50m and the hotel is next to the bus stop. And the food for non-islam people is so many restaurant in there. But for Islam people (muslim), it's hard to find the Halal Restaurant. You only have a choise to go to KFC or McDonald near the hotel. Based on my experience, to get a various food, you can go to Orchad road and move to Lucky Plaza food court. To go there, take 21 or 131 bus and stop to Novena MRT station and go to Orchad MRT station. And just find that Plaza there. To go around the city, i suggest you to go by bus or MRT. Those public transportation only work until 10 pm - 11 pm. You don't have to afraid that you will lost or don't know about the transportation or other information. You just ask the officers in there, they'll be help you nicely and in detail to you. Special thanks for Mr. Kok Haur the front officer that really help us and other officers that always keep smile to us.
Good Value for Money”
The place is good if you are intending to be out all day, exploring SG. Room is small but has enough space to move around. The toilet is also a space saver type, just very basic. But they do provide towels, dental kit, shower foam and cap. They have complementary water, tea and coffee in the room. You can use the electric kettle for hot water. Location is good, about 10 minutes walk to Novena Square (MRT) via Shan and Irrawaddy roads. You can also ride Bus 21 from and to Novena Square. Balestier Market (hawker) is a 100m away from hotel doors and is open 24hrs. And best of all, the staff are polite and very professional.
Perfect for budget travellers”
At first, the toilet smelled really bad of smoke, kind of a contrast with their name, "fragrance hotel." So we just turned on the exhaust fan and eventually we adapted to the place. Wifi is good. Bus stop is right outside. Affordable meals just a short walk away. Novena Square (mall) and Novena Church are conveniently about 15mins away. Thank you Oasis FH branch!
Very concenient for puclic busses to everywhere in Singapore. I registered in Oasis and the room turned out to be a bit noise, so the very friendly staff offered me Fragrance Hotel Classic on the opposite side and the room was extremely quiet! Very warm and friendly staff too.
Value for money and comfortable stay”
Fragrance Oasis is my usual hotel to stay at Singapore. The staff are very friendly (particularly filipino staff) and efficient. During the previous stays, I found the quality of cleaning room should be improved, however, this time, it is quite acceptable. On the other hand, I do still continue to suggest that in the bath room that the hanging wire for washed clothes should be provided.Anyhow, with this price level and quality of service, I keep on staying at Fragrance Oasis, every time I visit Singapore.
I initially booked for the Oasis but was directed to its another branch just right across the street. After reading some reviews, I lowered my expectation as my goal was only for a place to crash in a hotel after a day’s out, suffice to say, I only need the basics. I can say that I am pleasantly surprised that it turned it good and I got my money’s worth and more. Pros: - room can comfortably accommodate standard Asian sized couples without oversized luggages - cold AC - heater and water working well - basic bathroom fixture working and look sturdy - love the semi hard bed as I don’t prefer soft - friendly staff - check out was a breeze, took the staff like literally just a few seconds to confirm we’re good to go - bus stop located just right outside and just a few stops going novena MRT - very near hawker Cons: - compact restroom, good for one only when using - room has a lingering smell of cigarette as we were located next to a fire exit
Excellence in Staff Support”
I needed assistance during my stay and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The Hotel rooms are small, but clean and well presented. My room would not suit a family, but highly recommend the Hotel. The hardest thing in Singapore is directions. FYI the hotel is approx. 1200m or 12 mins walk to Novena Station. I did see earlier reports of 600 and 700 m. Those reporters must have abnormally long legs. The Hotel is about 400m from the intersection and a further 800m walk to the station. Easy to get to by foot. If you are not inclined to walk, the buses 21 and 131 both stop outside the hotel and deliver you to the front door of the station. Convenient Location, Value for Money, Very Friendly and Helpful Staff. Phil
this is my 3rd time visit this hotel. The hotel room is comfortable and clean. service is good especially room cleaning service make a very good job. fragrance oasis will be my 1st choose for me when my next visit to singapore.
Most of the reviews are correct”
Most of the reviews I have read are correct. The hotel is new the rooms are spotlessly clean, serviced daily including changing sheets and towels. The front desk consists of only one person (very busy at times) so bear that in mind when making requests. The rooms are very small so don't spend too much of your time there, get out and about because the hotel is in a great spot to access the city. It is exactly 20 minutes walk to the MRT Novena use the shortcut. The bus stop out the front will take you there (number 21)or to Orchard (just check the number on the bus stop notice board). On the opposite side take 130 to Bugis 131 to Harbourfront and 145 to Marina Bay (Sentosa). Why I am mention that is at the airport terminal 2 or at major subway stations you can buy a 3 day unlimited travel pass for $30 of which $10 is refundable. Catch taxis if you like but they are just not necessary in this city. The hotels in singapore are expensive at around $250 UP 4star. The oasis is really a bargain.I Noticed there walk in rate was $95 so paying around the $70-75 mark with agoda is the best you will do in this town IMHO. Was in town for the Singapore Marathon and hopefully back again to the Oasis hotel next year.
