Room was tidy but dusty. Not sure how long it was vacant. Savage system need improvement as the toilet smell whenever you flush it. Breakfast not provided and do consider that someone passing by can hear you from outside of the room. However it was a nice place to rest.
I left some food in the refrigerator which I was supposed to take to my trip back to my place but I forgot it & I never got any call from the hotel. It would had been nice if they did tried to notify me which will be a lot better.
I use the Fragrance Ruby around two or three times per year. Good location midway between city and airport and MRT station is under 10mins walk away. Decent value for money facilities, efficient front desk and a comfy bed. Plenty of local food and drink options nearby. Its still a red light district but nothing to be worried about. I'll happily continue to use it as there aren't any better for this price and comfort for a night or two in Singapore.
Geylang covers the East central of the city and although a red light district, the throngs of sidewalk hawkers prevail. Stick to odd numbered Lorongs (streets) from one to 39 for cheap and good local grubs. Discover spicy frog-legs, crispy chicken and stinky tofu. Shop stands, Muslim food stalls and a museum are daytime distractions at the Malay Village and Geylang Serai market.
