My husband and I booked and prepaid three nights at the Strand Hotel. This is a budget hotel near the corner of Bencoolen Street and Bras Basah Road. It is nothing fancy but it is clean, well maintained, and staffed by friendly, helpful, and efficient people. However, beyond all that, the location is fantastic. There is a lot of construction...

The Strand Hotel has been updated some in the last 16 years. The location is fairly handy since it is located right downtown. Unfortunately there was major road construction going on right outside the front doors so it was diffcult to get taxi access to or from there. The breakfast was tasty and fast. You serve yourself to the small... More

The room is spacious and walking distance to the 2 MRT Stations and bus stop. Wifi was excellent especially for some who wish to work after tour. Staffs were nice. The food were great.... More

Setting aside the annoying view of the Bencoolen train station construction,everything else was pretty much alright. The room given to us at the 8th floor was clean and very spacious for a family of 4. Rooms were cleaned everyday upon request by very friendly hotel staff. Elevators were pretty quick; no problem with that if you stay in the higher... More

From Jeff (Front Office Agent) to Ivy (Reservations Agent), the said stay was good. During the reservations I informed Ivy that we are travelling with a person in a wheelchair... More

Construction outside the hotel is not a good choice. No mineral water given in the room. Breakfast was so limited by choice and a very small cafe. Walking distance to Bugis Village which has a lot of good deals there. Short walk to bus stop & mrt. Taxi drivers are not sure where is the hotel. We need to give... More
