Clean and convenient Singapore hotel that is affordable. 5-min walk to the nearest mrt station, clarke quay. The area though is a bit high-end. Across the road is a mall, with food court at the basement and high end shops.
Free wifi for up to 3 devices per room.
Free breakfast is a winner for a boutique hotel.
As with any Singapore affordable hotel, space is limited. The selling factor of this hotel and branch is its location (safe and convenient) and it’s cleanliness. – wAnderfOol27 of Malaysia at TripAdvisor

Why Stay at Fragrance Hotel Riverside
There are plenty of reasons to stay at this hotel, but for us, the number one has to be location.
This is central Singapore with bells on. You can walk to the riverside, with the impressive number of bars and restaurants at Clarke Quay, head into Chinatown for excellent hawker food. Or jump on the MRT and head over to Marina Bay Sands for shopping and dining or Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s beautiful modern park.
Facilities would come in at a close second. Rooftop pools are usually reserved for five star locations, but Fragrance Hotel Riverside has one, and a fitness center and restaurant. There’s also a public lounge area and a business center where you can catch up with emails or print documents.
We’re also impressed with the look of the room. The space is cosy, but the decor is luxurious and they’ve really made the most of the space, with cable television, coffee making facility and complimentary toiletries as standard.
