    We’re staying for 3days 2night. The fragrance hotel have a clean room and good price. Near parkway east hospital and location easy to find food. Only several thing need to improve, no slipper in room, neighbour voice can hear clearly in our room, night life area (pub/karaoke) a bit noise. But still very recommend this hotel.

We were surprised to learn that the Front Office did not receive any complainst from you regarding the missing money during the whole duration of your stay. As this is a serious allegation, the manager would have conducted an investigation immediately if he had been informed of the matter, and assisted to escalate the matter to the police had there been any reason to suspect misconduct. All of our Housekeeping Team have been with us for several years and we have never had any other guests losing any of thier belongings or cash when they were staying with us.

    Everything was okay except for the Male Night Staff at the lobby on the 10th of November. Me and my wife booked a room with one bed but to our surprised we were given a double single bed. I asked the male staff why and then he answered, room were based on the availability. And when i asked if there’s any staff who can help us to put the bed together, He replied that he was the only staff on duty and he cant help us.Whaaaaaatttttttttttt?! And even answered with sarcastic looks. Infairness the staffs the next morning upon check out were very friendly.

    A great budget hotel for a short stay in Singapore”
    The hotel room is really clean and adequately sized. The housekeeping team did a great job maintaining the cleanliness throughout my stay. Much appreciated. There are tons of eateries for people to eat around the area if you ever go hungry. The hotel is a little far from public transport and the shopping malls, hence I had to walk a little or took a grab during my lazy day. Overall, it was pleasant and I would definitely recommend it to people that are looking for an affordable and comfortable stay in Singapore

Clean rooms, bed sheets, towel. Tea coffee sachets, bottled water, toothbrush, toothpaste, shower cap provided. Room is quite spacious. There is free parking beside hotel, but limited space.

    Dear Mary, Thank you for choosing to stay with us at The Fragrance Hotel, as well as appreciating our housekeeping services. As Singapore is really small as compared to most countries, hotel rooms here in our city have also been scaled accordingly. I'm sorry to hear that our beds were not to your preference as well. Our beds had been replaced after surveys were conducted with our guests, and were intended to serve almost all of our guests. Nevertheless, we hope you have enjoyed your stay with us.

    Room with free strong WiFi, they provided free bottled water, towels provided, toothbrush/toothpaste provided. Aircon took awhile to cool down the room. Staff was friendly. Free parking provided beside the hotel, but limited spots (about 5/6 spots), on a first-come-first-serve basis. There are some pubs along the roads which operates at night. There's a nearby Durham food centre which has stalls operating from breakfast to supper time.

    Our 2nd time in Singapore and we stayed here as opposed to right in the centre, for how much cheaper it made it we don't regret the decision, the room was nice and the lack of window would have bothered me but we knew we were gonna be out all day. Clean and comfortable, some good food options nearby and it's nice to see a slightly different side to Singapore than huge hotels.

Not only are they kind and caring but extremely empathetic towards tired business travellers! However, there’s always one rotten egg that spoils the entire basket! That is the vilest mannerism of a thug, the man housekeeper whose demeanour is extremely abhorrent and obnoxious! He glares and seeks trouble with any hotel guests whom he thinks he can bully!
