We stayed here for three nights on our visit to Singapore. The hotel is very well located just off Bras Basah road right in the center of Singapore. The staff on the reception were efficient, friendly and helpful and we had a clean and comfortable room on the fifth floor. The room was on the small side but this did... More

Our 4-night stay in Hotel Bencoolen was great. We chose to be placed in a high floor as the Bencoolen MRT station is being constructed (until 2017) so there won't be much noise when we sleep. The room they gave us was good. You can hear the construction, but it was very faint. Breakfast was okay. Home-cooked style with the... More

We stayed at hotel Bencoolen in a deluxe twin room which was not deluxe but quite big and pleasant. Be aware if you book using booking.com that prices do not include tax and that your bill will be 20% higher. Location is great and the walk to the seaside easy and pleasant.

I stayed here for a few nights in June, room was reasonably comfortable but limited power sockets. Wifi is very slow. Breakfast was also very basic and either eaten on the side of the street or in the nightclub/bar. The nightclub/bar can be noisy till the early hours of the morning if you are on the lower floors, especially toward... More

The Hotel Bencoolen is a middle of the road standard hotel in a good central location in Singapore. It is close to the MRT (subway) Bras Basah station and there are plentiful restaurants, 7-11s etc nearby. The rooms are smallish but perfectly adequate. The breakfast is relatively basic but we never had to wait or feel there wasn't enough of... More

I think its not a budget hotel, because the price is pretty much expensive. The location is perfect for traveller who want to explore singapore. So, you must be out from the hotel early in the morning after breakfast and back to the hotel in the night. You have no time to swim or others activities in the hotel. You... More

I have booked a triple room which was really very small.Bathroom was small too.There was hardly any place to move around and no proper place to put luggage.Breakfast was OK.The only good thing was that the staff was very helpful and MRT station is just 5 mins away.

Stayed there last week on a trip with nephew. Room is ok with very cool air-con but only limited tv channels available--not that it really mattered, though.., breakfast is ok, staff are nice and communicative, they had wi-fi in the rooms as well.. location is quite strategic between walking distance to Bugis or to Orchard area. The hotel also has... More

Booked two rooms through booking.com. Best to check the hotel's website for better offers. Breakfast was included but it was the same everyday. Staff was very nice. Walking distance to Little India, Arab area and Bugis and even the river area. Bus stop and MRT are very near. Has a small dipping pool. And a gym. WIFI is poor. We... More

Stayed only one night on my transit to KL. Quite impressed with the service. Staffs are very helpful and attentive. Our room is clean and quite spacious, especially considering it is located in the downtown (walking distance to Singapore Art Museum, Orchard and Bugis, as well as to two MRT stations: Bras Basah and Dhoby Ghaut). Bus stop to Changi... More
