    The Fragrance Balestier room was large when compared to many in the budget chains. Good bathroom and shower. I had a problem on check in as my booking was done and prepaid.. According to Booked.net. On arrival the receptionist told me no payment had been received.. And again the following day it had still not been received. And I had to pay cash.. On a few occasions they had people at reception who were trying to get rooms for 'short term stays;'.. A few hours., And without id... And they were turned away.. The staff at reception handled the situations well.. They were all friendly and observant. I will stay at Fragrance Balestier on future trips to Singapore.. It is just a 5 mins walk to McDonalds & kfc.. Which is good for some people.. There are lots of convenience shops nearby

    The only problem was the bed.. It was a bit too firm for me.. As I do like a softer mattress.. No breakfast...

    Nothing special and the bathroom has a design problem, because if u take the shower the toilet will get wet.

    When we arrive with my wife we found that the bathroom was not clean. The hotel is not near to the train station

    Located at the heart of singapore, just a couple of bus stops towards the shopping centers of the city. From Channel to Hermes, from Gucci to Louis Vuitton, everything is for grabs. Best vaca ever!!!

    Unfortunately, my husband lost his wallet and I lost my gucci sunglasses. Both on seperate occasions. Nothing to do with the hotel though, my husband left his wallet at the cab and my sunglasses got lost while shopping. But despite the lost, we've gained so much with this exquisite trip.

    Easily to find transportation.

    Payment by cash instead of full payment by credit card. No swimming pool. No bar. No package for sight tours.

    Honest/Fair info by personnel on Arrival.

    (1) Although Bed perfectly made-up and shower room cleaned, Remaning room-space not properly cleaned (Floor not sweeped and some some items stained by body lotion or similar oil-like material) (2) Very narrow spaces around bed / No place to open suitcase exept on top of bed. (3) Internet acces easy for use, but expensive (SGD 18.-) for 24 hours. only, starting to count from first log-on. Even when only using internet 2 mins, the clock starts ticking........ . After 24 hours, irrespecive (further) use internet stops. (Internet for shoreter periods available, but requires new log-ons repeatedly. Would rather see internet as an intergral part of Hotel prices.
