Fragrance Hotel Emerald

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.

    1. Hai Mbak, dari Aljunied ke bus stop Opp Mohd Saleh Mosque bisa naik bus 100 atau 80, turun di bus stop ketiga setelah Mbak naik.

      Kalau pergi dari hotel, Mbak bisa naik bus 21, terus turun di Kallang MRT.

      Semoga membantu ya...

    3. Hai Zahra, maaf komen nya terlewat, tapi saya tetep jawab ya, siapa tau untuk yang lain:
      1. Bisa bayar pake STP.
      2. Tarifnya tergantung mau tujuan kemana? Kalau yg jauh sekitar SGD2-3.
      3. Iya betul naik dan turun di bus stop yg sama, karena jalannya satu arah.

    1. MRT turun Aljunied Station, exit B. Kemudian naik Bus 80 atau 100, turun di bus stop Opp Mohd Shalleh Mosque, bus stop kedua setelah naik dari MRT Aljunied.

    1. Lokasinya sih mereka deketan kok Mbak.. Nah kalau dari sisi kamar, saya belum tau yg Sapphire. Coba cek Mba di tripadvisor.com Apa kata traveler yang lain.

  5. Mbak Tesya, blog anda ruuuar biasa informatif. Terimakasih banyak ya sudah membantu kami dalam persiapan kunjungan perdana ke Singapura. Mbak, kalo saya dan pasangan plus 2 anak umur 13 dan 11 tahun, memungkinkan gak kalo pesan kamar yang standar (bukan family room)? ataukan ada biaya tambahan jika membawa anak? Mohon infonya ya Mbak...Terimakasih...

    1. Hai Mas, thanks for enjoying the posts our blogs:) Jangan lupa beli buku kami juga ya, Family Backpacking Singapura & Malaysia, yaelah malah promosi hehe

      Mas, saya enggak recommend di hotel ini ber-4, apalagi anak Mas udah besar. Saya aja pas kunjungan kedua ke hotel ini, mereka pas cek in bilang kalau family room itu cuman untuk bertiga. Hadeh, saya cuek aja deh.

      Kalau anak seumur Mas sih di hostel aja kayanya seru Mas...
