My flight from Narita was scheduled to get into Singapore at 12:30am. It didn’t make sense to book an expensive hotel if I was going to arrive late at night. I started looking into budget accommodations in the city and found a single room with a private bathroom for 55 SGD ~ ($43.92 USD) taxes included. The hotel was a budget chain in Singapore called the Fragrance Hotel. There are many Fragrance hotels within Singapore and I happened to book one right in the red light district called Fragrance Hotel – Sunflower.

I ended up getting to the hotel at 1:30am because of the long immigration and customs lines at Changi International Airport (SIN). (I took the exterior picture the next morning.)
The front desk agent informed me that the Superior room I booked had been sold out for the night. She said that I was upgraded to a Deluxe room. I love upgrades!
The deluxe room consisted of a working desk and chair, TV, two complimentary bottles of water, and a coffee machine. The hair dryer was located outside the bathroom (more on that later).
There was also a queen size bed along with an air conditioner unit in the room.
The bathroom was an all-in-one combo, meaning that the sink, toilet, and shower are all in one room. That’s why the hair dryer was located outside.
It’s a basic no frills room and I only stayed there until 6am where I wandered around the streets of Singapore. Did I mention that there’s no Wi-Fi available at this hotel? That’s one downside, but 55 SGD, who cares? All I needed was a clean room to spend a few hours in and it suited me perfectly.
