We just returned from our weekend away in Singapore and as always, I knew it was going to be something worth sharing on trip advisor! First impression of the property... Multi-Level parking was a not as clean as I expected it to be. Our 3 year old ran around bare feet (I know...) and being the boy that he is,... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my 4 year old daughter. We had a great time. The apartment was clean, simple and everything we needed. The pools/playground on the roof were great and the staff friendly. Although there are major works at ground level in front of the hotel, we were not bothered by it at all. There is... More

We spent a few nights here in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was on a high floor, it was spacious, bright and modern. Okay, there was no dish washer, but that didn't cause a problem. The apartments get cleaned daily, like in a normal hotel. The swimmingpool on the rooftop was nice. Supermarkets and all shops are within a... More

This is our second stay at Bencoolen Somerset. Our two bedroom/ two bath unit is quite nice, though it feels like nothing has been upgraded since we were last here. The swimming pool is great for the kids, though it is not too large. The buffet breakfast is not great, but adequate. Unfortunately, there is massive construction directly outside our... More

Staying here since the past 2 weeks and going to stay for the next 2 months. It is well maintained even though the building appears old. The interiors are quite good and spacious for staying with family. They have a launderette inside the hotel but its a paid service. The internet speed could have been better. The roof top swimming...

Booked the 1 bedroom apartment for my dad's 9 days stay and he's still staying when i wrote this. Apartment was gloomy looking but still ok. No washer/dryer in the apartment like i'm used to in other Somerset property elsewhere in other country so i guess i put my expectation a lil too high thinking that it's in Singapore anyways....

Inspite of the construction of a new railway station, which was more of an inconvenience for the taxis this property was more than adequate for a few days stay in Singapore. The staff were more than welcoming and helpful..a complimentary upgrade to a premium two bedroom apartment provided a balcony with a view over the garden. Breakfast was more than... More

Currently staying at this property and it's exactly as I expected from reading previous reviews - except we can't hear the MRT works at all (maybe as we're on level 12?). Spacious two bedroom apartment with a queen and a double bed, and an ensuite. Big fridge in kitchen. No service on Sundays, but no concern for us as only... More

Stayed here, last August (2012), we were 7 of us. When I booked it, was only 2 rooms apt, but since that some of my family would like to join us, I was thinking to rebook for 3 bedroom, but it was last minute decision, so I didn't have a chance to change the booking. Anyway, when we arrived in... More

My family, 5 adults and 2 toddlers, stayed in their 2 bedroom apartment last January. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable even with extra bed. Kitchen is well equipped, you really can cook here (unfortunately i didnt since our stay was short). Very close to MTR station and Singapore's main attraction, you can literally walk to see them...
