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

We booked the hotel many weeks ago as it was our final extra night in Singapore after a cruise. We were alarmed to find when we arrived that the road was shut at the front due to a major construction of the new MRT station. We probably wouldn't have booked it had we known, but that would have been our... More

I had a brief stay at this hotel with my family last week and I have to say that this is by far the worst hotel experience that i have had in Singapore. Having visited Singapore couple of times before and Hotel Bencoolen has a long way to par with competition. Arrival and check in: The hotel is right in-front... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable and air conditioning worked well. Very good value for money. Very good breakfast included in our room rate. Close to transport, bus and train.

The location of the hotel is best.This hotel is near to the bus stops,metro station (MRT) and it's also near to the Orchard Road which is the best place for shopping and even walk. There is also a food court in front of the hotel which is open 24 hours. The breakfast part of this hotel is really good.A variety... More

Pros:1)Cleanliness tops it all. 2) Good location, 2 minutes walk into Bras Basah MRT station entrance, but the MRT platform is 5 minutes walk into "deep down underground" from the MRT entrance. 3) There is 24 hours food court facing the main road, numerous eating places and restaurant around. 4) Complete amenity kit for the bathroom. Good selection of coffee... More

The rooms are so small we got two twin beds pushed together to make a queen. We have 2 people on the room and it is so packed you can't even put your luggage down as it will block your way to the bathroom. The room is not nice compared to the days inn we were just in and it... More

Stopped in to ask about rates. Asked to see a room and was flat out refused. Not possible. "Come back tomorrow." Was thoroughly unimpressed with this unwillingness to figure out some way to see a sample room.
