Impressive”

First of all, I would like to take this chance to apologise to the staff that attend to us on 30th July, around 4pm. Sorry that my husband displayed rude attitude. Because this booking in your hotel was solely my decision without my husband prior notice. As Geylang was well known for its prostitutes, my husband is dejective with my hotel choice as we brought along two children under the age of 4. Initially we want to go for one of the hotel in Sentosa, but it was fully booked. so i considered to try something different (and for the Mongkok Dim Sum at Lorong 8 I long missed), I chose Fragrance Pearl. The staffs are very warm and polite. Despite my husband's attitude, they still manage to keep their cool and give us the greatest smile. Upon entering our room, my husband got impressed. Despite being in the red light district, and rated as a budget hotel, the ambience and room facilities are excellent. Comparing to a four star hotel we initially wanted to go for, it was about the same standard. Perhaps because of the limited area for developing other facilities such as pool, gym or spa, it was under-rated. The room and bathroom was clean and well furnished. My children loved the room! and it has been some time for my husband and myself since we last slept together with our children in a room. The hotel is also situated in the most popular area for its delicious foodie. I greatly recommend. Brought my kids for cycling the next day at ECP. After our cycling, my kids still mentioned that we are going back to the hotel (when we are going back home). Because we need to work, otherwise would stay for few more days. Happy and unforgettable, will come back again someday.

Weekend in Singapore”

Value for money, Nice modern clean functional room, Great WiFi

I have stayed in several hotels in Geylang - the only affordable area for me in Singapore,(which has just been classed as 'the most expensive city in the world' by The Economist for the 2nd year in a row), and this was by far the best. Yes Geylang is the of Singapore, however, this is Singapore so it is still an area that is well maintained and has great infrastructure and is easily accessible by using the MRT - Aljuned being the nearest station.The hotel is also in one of the nicer more residential streets and I didn't see any hanging around the corners.The receptionists were efficient and friendly. The room was of the modern minimalist functionalist variety, which I like. The beds are clean and comfortable, the free WiFi was fast, the shower was hot and the pressure strong, the toilet/shower-room is modern and functional. There is an in-room safe and tea and coffee making facilities, the flat screen TV was also good although not much choice of channels. Finally, the rooms have great sealed - I think double glazed windows - so nice and quiet, no noise from outside. Highly recommended. I'll be staying here again.

For AUD$52 a night, its cheap and good !”

Airconditioning is fantastic and is a must in Singapore ! Free WIFI in rooms too ! Staff are polite and friendly all times of the day and night ! :D

I stayed here in Fragrance hotel a few times already, they apparently just got renovated and EVERYTHING is new, LOBBY is always icy cold which is awesome. In the room they got a cool power outlet, like if you forgot your apple charger but you have the USB cable, you can connect it to the wall as there is a USB outlet built into the wall, how cool is that. Bathroom has dual shower heads, a bit cramped but still very nicely decorated. Only negative things is that the bed is super hard, but I still fell asleep quickly and comfortably thanks to the cool a/c in the room, small room, but for the price you paid and the location, all you really need is to shower and sleep there. Also they have changed this hotel to smoke free, before you use to be able to smoke in the rooms, it's a great idea. Even when you were in a smoke free level, you could smell cigarette smoke coming from other floors which would be irritating when you go to sleep, but now after they renovated everything, and it smells new......for sure next time I'm in Singapore, I'd stay here again. Easy access to everywhere, Geylang has great food and entertainment. I recommend anyone to stay in Fragrance-Pearl !

Overall good”

Pros: very clean, towel and bedsheets are all clean, we ask for room make up everyday and they never forget to give us fresh mineral waters bottles , clean the dustbin and also gives clean towel everyday! Cons: weird smell from the bathroom, management should have done something about it or at least put air refresher in the bathroom. Our room was at the corner and we can hear clearly whenever the upper floors water flush through the piping , it was so annoying and wake us up early in the morning, the sound was so loud as if it was like raining on top of your roof! The last day stay in the room was totally unbearable, should have ask them to change the room for us earlier Overall this hotel is clean, good , food convenient and worth for money to stay in singapore if u have children and u are looking for a room with a private bathroom. Many other hotel in Singapore with same budget but comes with shared toilet which I don’t really like it

Affordable Hotel in Singapore”

Fragrance Pearl is probably one of the few hotels that provide family rooms with triple beds while offering truly affordable prices. The only downside is perhaps its location in the famous red-light district of Geylang. However, Lorong 14, where the hotel is located, is clean, tidy and doesn't look like it is a "night-life" area with girls hanging around the street (like the other Lorongs). So, it is a recommended hotel for those looking for affordable accommodation in Singapore.

Clean, friendly staff, quick service

If you're looking for a budget and clean hotel, consider staying at Fragrance Hotel - Pearl. They say the place is located on a red zoned district, but the location is still safe. Went there with my mom, niece (9 y/o) and nephew (5 y/o). Arrived around at 3PM and check - in was quick. The room is well maintained and all utilities are working except for the local phone. Anyway, we didn't need to use the phone. Make sure to bring your own slippers as they don't provide one. The only cons is that the hotel is a bit far from Aljunied station. If you're up for walking, be ready. We have to take a cab every time we alight at Aljunied and vice versa. Roaming around the city is pretty tiring so you may want to save your energy when going out of the hotel or when going home. The hotel is located at Lorong 14 st. Don't get confused of the number 21.

Superb stay”

We had a great time staying in Fragrance Pearl Hotel last December 2015. We were 4 and I availed 2 rooms. Me and my husband stayed at the 2nd floor while my 2 teenage children (girl and boy) stayed at the 6th floor. We usually take a cab, and we didn’t take MRT. The taxi costs only us SGD10 or less from Geylang to Sentosa area. We’re all excited to go home in our hotel every night coz we found so comfy and relaxing. This hotel is clean, people are nice and shower room is very good. My children didn’t complain about the shower room, even if the glass has a bit of transparency. As I heard from others, they were saying that we should not stay in Geylang because it’s a red district. But we don’t find any problem with that coz we usually arrived in the hotel by group. And I don’t let my kids to go out by themselves only. As I observed, many tourists stayed in this hotel with family and group of friends. I recommend this hotel for those who look for a budget and clean hotel.

The stay was good. Location is good with plenty of food places to eat at sensible prices. There is a train station 700 m away if you want to travel cheap. Taxi to town is about ten Singapore dollars. Geylang is more attractive to the eye than the main town area. Most buildings are only two storeys high. Drink is cheap as well. A fraction of the town price.

Located close to reasonable restaurants and shops in a residential area. We were allowed to store luggage after check out since our flight was later in the day. Each room had the necessary amenities, with hot/cold shower and complimentary items in bathroom. Beds and room were clean with clean towels, there was water bottles, coffee/tea facilities. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Our experience in Singapore was amazing, my brother lost his sunglasses and case, and the cab driver located the item and returned it to us, the hotel assisted with allowing us to speak with the cab service and helped us provide the hotel location so that the cab driver could drop off the lost item.

Fragrance Hotel - Pearl offers one of the most affordable rate in Singapore. The location is ideal as it is near the bus station but a bit far from the MTR train stations. The staffs are polite and very helpful while the facilities are clean and just enough for one or two persons.

Can't complain...”

Friendly staff, handy location and close to public transport

My stay at the Pearl was absolutely fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the area was very safe (contrary to some of the reviews), food in Geylang is very good and cheap, public transport, both bus and the mrt are right there and you get to the CBD 1n 15 mins. The reputation of Geylang tends to put people off but I can't understand what that is all about. I felt perfectly safe as a solo traveller at all times of the day so do no let some negative reviews put you off from staying in Geylang or the Pearl. It is very good value for money and well-priced.

This is the second time I chose to stay there with my family as this is a good budgeted hotel in Singapore. The location is quite convenient for going to some entertainment places and it only take 10 min walk to the MRT station. The staff is nice and friendly. The room is quite small but good accomodation. Only one bad thing is the smell of the room when I walk into the room at first day, it is terrible smell from the toilet pine although I have complained to the manager and the engineer who is quite nice to come to check and fix it but unfortunately he said that it can not be fixed now. It may make our family feel not clean as before I stayed 02 years ago. The hotel needs to maintain and renovate some old rooms to improve the quality.

I chose the hotel on recommendation of a friend. Price is right and location at Geylang is excellent for a large variety of good cheap food. The staff were friendly and efficient.

I enjoyed my stay at the Pearl. I was there with my wife on a trip from Indonesia. Initially we expected to stay for 2 nights which became 5 nights when the volcano in Lombok erupted. Our flight was cancelled.The hotel is good vale and the price is right. I particularly like the location which is what I remember of the Singapore of the 70's. The staff are helpful and friendly. Get them to call a taxi if you need to travel far as getting a taxi on the road can be slow. I recommend the hotel fully.
