The rooms were average for a budget hotel and acceptably clean. Breakfast was disorganized. The free wifi is limited to only 5 hours, and you have to physically go to the front desk when you want the wifi time to begin. Since there is only 1 key and that key is required to run the electricity in the room, you... More

My husband & i stayed here for 4 days & 3 nights. The stay was pleasant. The staff was all friendly, room was not so spacious but still good enough for both of us, Toilet was also clean. Location is also good (there is an ongoing construction though, but we hardly notice them coz we were out the whole day)... More

First rule of hotels - you get what you pay for. I was on a tighter budget for this stay in Singapore than previous trips. I chose the Bencoolen because it was close to the hotel I used to stay at, but it was half the price. I had asked for a high floor - knowing that there are ongoing... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean but very cold. AC cannot be controlled from the room even though there is a control. Bathroom is clean and good size. 2nd floor has a nice & clean outdoor swimming pool. Internet in the room and breakfast is included.

I'm suppose to travel and visit Singapore for the 2nd time this April 2014. I stayed at Hotel Bencoolen before last 2012. I'm very delighted with their hospitality and planned to stay again. My flight was cancelled this April 2014. I have a reservation and called Hotel Bencoolen to cancel the same day. Hotel Bencoolen was very very empathetic, considerate... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Bencoolen for 3 nights in March. In my opinion, the primary reason for staying at Hotel Bencoolen is the supreme location. It is literally 3-4 minutes away from the Bras Basah MRT and less than 10 minutes from the Dhoby Ghaut MRT, which is where 3 lines intersect. So, in terms of travel... More

Apart from this all the arrangements ,staff service, good breakfast having several veterinarian items . Since I used to go to the rooms small room... More

Excellent location: Right near Dhoby Ghaut ("doby got") which connects to three different lines. I'd stay here again for the location. Staff was extremely helpful - we checked out at noon the day we were heading to KL and they allowed us to come back later in the day. The facility has a pool and workout area, but it's minimal...
