Hotel was basic and advertised pool is small and doesn't get the sun in the afternoon. Rooms were spacious and clean with a huge bathroom. Internet purchased from the front desk, but once logged in your time is continuous so you can't log out and save time for later which is rather annoying. This means you have to re-purchase every...

This hotel is very basic. Small but clean. Rooms and hotel itself are small. Wifi password changes every 24hours. You have to go to the front desk and ask for it. The location is ok. Breakfast was buffet, it was ok. Staffs are very friendly and nice.

I stayed here for one night at the end of my trip through Asia. The location is ideal, the rooms are clean and well equipped and the staff will go out of their way to help you. I had a late flight from Singapore but had to check out of my room by 12 o'clock. Without asking, I was offered... More

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

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.
