Fragrance Hotel – Pearl, Geylang, Singapore

WARNING: Photos are not that clear for viewing since this review is unplanned. I just stole the shots from my sisters haha ūüėÄ


When I traveled to Singapore with my family, I booked us a room at Fragrance Hotel – Pearl which is located in Geylang. Unknowingly, this area is known as the Red District of Singapore.


Below will be a quick mini review for the said hotel.

As we entered, the receptionist greeted us with a smile. Good thing she’s Filipina so we did not have a hard time conversing. The lobby is small furnished with some tables and chairs. You would also see a vending machine with assorted drinks (hot/cold coffee, water, sodas). There are few personal computers that you could use since they have free wi-fi in the lobby.

Just to warn you, please lower down your expectations if you book a two-star hotel.

We went upstairs and passed by a narrow hallway with appalling lights. We were charged around 254 SGD for three nights per twin room.


Upon entering the room, that’s where I got annoyed, it smelled like cigarette smoke all over.¬†Thought I could have a rest but then I had to call a housekeeping to clean and refresh it again. Good thing, they complied fast.¬†No cabinets were offered but they have a 4-piece hanger area. They also have¬†complimentary bottled waters and coffee. A hair-dryer is available as well.

I can’t complain with their comfort room since it is clean enough to use. There are toiletries and towels provided.

The room I booked was their standard one and it was good enough for two people. What I like about the place is its cleanliness and the street view from our room. I didn’t feel that I was in the Red District area at all. This hotel may lack some stuff but you’ll feel really comfortable sleeping in their beds at night, though, you could hear some noise coming from your neighbors.

Overall the 3-night stay was not that bad. If you just wanted a place to take a shower and sleep on after a long and exhausting day, I’d recommend this hotel for you.
