For a reasonable price of 78 dollars or lesser depending on the room you select, Fragrance hotel Balestier is clean with basic amenities like kettle, bottled water and clean bed and toilet provided. The room I selected is the Deluxe Loft. The photos from the management are on point. The layout varies depending on the room given. Room is clean and fresh when I checked in. I have my own private and clean balcony which is big enough to have a mini barbecue. However, tropical Singapore kept me in my room most of the time. Air-con is cold and silent located next to my loft bed. Do adjust the temperature and fan speed accordingly. The kettle I got looks almost new. Shower Heater is functioning well. Toilet is clean and well maintain. Bring you own shower gel and shampoo too for best comfort. Bed, pillows and sheets are clean and comfortable. Do bring your own pillows, teddy bear and blanket if you desire maximum comfort. The loft is sturdy and no squeaking when you roll in bed. I got a level 5 loft and it’s quiet most of the time. I am not sure if I am the only one living on the floor. However, there might be a few things I want to highlight. The lightings in the room and toilet can be brighter or have more lightings. It can get quite dim at night. Balcony could use a night lamp. The night is the best to chill in the balcony. (Bring your own tent/ picnic mat/ camping lamp). Do also bring a 2 m long extension multiplug as there’s no power sockets near the bed. The tv signal can also be improved. Bring some hooks and hangers if you got many clothes to unpack. Becareful when climbing up and down the loft too. Overall, I am very impress with Fragrance Hotel Balestier so far. The receptionists are friendly and welcoming. The Hotel is well maintained and clean. Good for small staycation if you need some private space away from home. The hotel is centrally located with many food places and shopping centers nearby. I am here for 4 nights. And I wish I have more! I hope my photo helps. Forgive for my personal stuff scattered in the photos(:

The bathroom smell was horrible and my guest had to stuff tissue at the door to prevent the smell from entering the bedroom.

Room is very small from what as the picture says. It says loft. But the bed is very very small. For the price paid. Not worth it. For person with car. No parking at all. Have to park at a mall then walk over.

The room is smaller than expected but clean. Bit noisy because we got room with street view. There's few convenience store and durian stall nearby. Nearest MRT is not near at all, luckily there's bus stop in front of the hotel. There's hawker center nearby, Whampoa Makan Place, the food is very recommended!

The place was great for family stay. It's clean, comfy, and compact. The idea of Bunk beds are amazing especially when staying with siblings. Current location of the hotel has an easy access towards local chinese food and mini market, as well as a bus station and MRT station with additional walking. Overall the hotels offer an acceptable price.

Nice place to stay while exploring Singapore. A little far to the nearest MRT but only 100m to bus stop that practically can take you anywhere. 1 minute walk to minimart/laundry dan 5 minute walk for breakfast at the market. Room is tightly spaced but clean, can be a little bit noisy if your neighboring room is loud. That mean if you're loud in the room than the people in the next room can hear you. Good room service.
