We got a 2 bedroom serviced apartment and we were happy and contented with our stay. It was more than fully equipped for our needs because we did not use the kitchen and the iron. Bonus to us was the rooftop pool which is a good attraction for a family with big and young kids. Our accommodation cones with buffet... More

Singapore's Sommerset Bencoolen is up there with one of the very best hotels I have ever stayed at! Trust me, I have travelled quite a bit in my lifetime and some of the classiest hotels should take a note of how this hotel operates.

We (me and my wife) stayed for about 2 months in Somerset Bencoolen. We chose this as it was close to my office (in esplanade). The positives are location, it is super convenient. Close to Little India, CBD, a couple of good vegetarian restaurants. The place in itself is quite old and while we stayed, there was construction going on,... More

We were looking for accommodation in Singapore at a reasonable price for our family of four. This is not as easy as it sounds since a lot of hotel websites often cite a room price for a couple even when children are specified in the search. We found Somerset Bencoolen on Hotels Combined and were impressed by the two bedroom... More

Stayed here 3 nights, the rooms were very clean and the kitchen was a great alternative for eating outside. Just know that there is construction ongoing in front of Bencoolen street so if you are being dropped off it will be in their parking area. I was very happy with my stay at Somerset Bencoolen, although one thing that stopped... More

This is a slightly late review. We stayed here in December 2013. The rooms are good and fully functional for a family. The kitchenette is basic but well suited if you need to cook for your baby,etc (like I did) The breakfast is largely continental on most days and quite good. Overall I enjoyed a month long stay.

The construction did not bother us as we are on a higher floor. The service was excellent and prompt. Breakfast was good but could improve. Transportation is within walking distance to anywhere in Singapore. There is a fantastic dim sum and Mexican restaurant nearby.
