Frankly speaking, I have been avoiding staying at Geylang area Singapore all this time because of the area is famous for its red light district. Until a friend of mine asked my opinion about Fragrance Hotel Emerald. I read tripadvisor review on Fragrance Hotel Emerald, and to my surprise, the reviews were overall ok. There are other Fragrance hotel in Geylang area, but the one with better reviews is the Fragrance Emerald.
We booked this hotel on the first night of our Singapore weekend getaway. We booked through Agoda, utilized our Agoda point, and therefore our room was only IDR 400,000 without breakfast. So cheap!
We arrived at Changi at about 1 am, and took taxi to the hotel which cost SGD 25, of course because of the midnight fare. Normal fair will not be more than SGD 15. When we were heading to the hotel, we passed the red light district and there were still many people arount at about 1.30 am!
The hotel located at Lorong 6 Geylang, which is far enough from the red light district. I might say that Lorong 6 is "clean"
We checked-in, and were upgraded to a deluxe room:) Though space was limited in the room, it was a very clean room and it also has a bathtub. We still had space beside the bathroom to do our muslim prayer. The downside of the room was the ceiling's height.
The hotel located really close to a bus stop called "Opp Mohd Shaleh Mosque" The nearest MRT is Kallang MRT, but it is about 15 minutes walk. So better to travel with bus if you are staying at this hotel. There were also many resto around. But we went to Little India to have breakfast after checking out from Fragrance Hotel Emerald.
If you are looking a cheap and clean hotel in Singapore, you may consider this hotel. I would not hesitate staying here again.
