Stayed at this hotel with my teenage daughter when we caught the One Direction concert. For the price we paid, the hotel was pretty decent. The biggest plus point was the location. It is 5 minutes walk to the Bras Basah MRT station, which is on the Circle Line. Dhobi Ghaut station, which is on another line, is also apparently... More

I stayed for 2 days and 1 night in this hotel in early March. This hotel is situated in Bencoolen street, just 5-10 min walk for the Dhoby Ghaut interchange MRT station which makes it a great location to travel around. Unfortunately the whole street has been closed for MRT station construction. Nevertheless it is rather quiet in the hotel.... More

We stayed for 2 nights! The location was excellent! It was very close to the metro stop, restaurants, starbucks, and the art museum. The rooms were very small, but functional and clean. There was a buffet breakfast included. It wasn't very fancy but it provides you with the basics you need to get your day started! The metro in Singapore... More

First of all Hotel Bencoolen has an absolutely amazing locations, which is why we booked it originally. I was quite pleased with the facilities, although they were compact they also had a very unique, cosy feel. The only downside is there's currently construction right outside the hotel (supposed to end in 2017?). This makes it more difficult to walk to... More

This hotel is located at Bencoolen Street just off the main Orchard Road shopping area. The first thing to greet us when we arrived were the friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful and quite chatty. The rooms are well appointed albeit not the largest of rooms I have seen however there was enough space for our luggage and... More

Near everything you need in vacation with family. Kopitiam on the corner along with 7eleven. MRT and bus station also close to hotel. The price is affordable and facilities is quiet okay. In my case, it is cheaper to buy through TripAdvisor when there is a discount and upgrade your room in site.
