The rooms here are very comfortable and nice, although a bit small. The location cannot be beat. In our opinion it is very inexpensive, making this accommodation an excellent value. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, but it suffices. Wi-fi works and that is not always the case. We would definitely stay here again.

The best is about location, then the staffs making bed very very good and the Hotel manager is very friendly and helpful. Another good things are about even high floor, yet the shower is strong. Easy to get foods near by(with a good price), convenience to get to MRT - Bras Bazar and Dhoby Guart. Just 3 bus stop to... More

Hotel Bencoolen is the perfect spot for someone in transit or staying in Singapore for a couple of days. I stayed there while on transit for 17 hours in Singapore. The room I stayed at (the Superior room) was clean, had all the amenities (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo) that are expected in a hotel and the service at the 24... More

The Hotel bencoolen is what it says it is but absolutely no more... It's in a good location: 2min walk from two MRT stations getting you onto 3 of the 4 lines. Bugis street, Raffles and Singapore art gallery are all a few minutes walk away. It has full facilities: POOL; small enough to fit into the small hotel rooms... More

We stayed one stopover night at hotel Bencoolen. We paid 100 eur for double room with breakfast. I think it was good value for money. We got a clean, quiet and nice room, acceptable breakfast and very good location. Orchard road is within walking distance. Taxi to and from the airport takes only 20 min and costs 25 SGD. Hotel...

Very friendly staff, respectful and indeed they treat us as a family. Just stay 1 night, Christmas Eve, not much option on that date. But very lucky we got room at this hotel. Perfect for location, clean room, price and again the staff. At the time there is construction work for MRT station. The must choose hotel if you after... More

It took us a while to find the hotel due to construction works, we walked the wrong way a couple of times. The rooms are great, spacious, beautiful bathroom and even a closet with enough room to hang/store some clothes and items. Reception was helpfull and friendly. Breakfast was served outside, there's an option to sit outside or to eat... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in November 2014. Great position except they are building a new MRT out the front so in a few years it will be a prime location. Excellent and friendly staff, especially the bellhop who was delightful. Breakfast is basic but good. Rooms are really clean and quiet at night. I'd stay here again.

Before I first visited the Hotel Bencoolen I reviewed other people's opinions and was slightly put off by some of the negative comments. I have recently returned from my fourth two week stay at this establishment and it continues to grow on me. Yes, the rooms are small, but they are equipped with what you need and all I do... More

I usually do not stay in 3 star hotels in Asia... exceptions may appear but surely not for Singapore. I booked the hotel as the city was running pretty full and even for the Bencoolen Hotel I had to pay a price which I doubted already in advance to be worth it. Service was as what I expected... and probably... More
