We recently stayed at the Ibis on Bencoolen Singapore. The staff are very friendly and will go all out to help where they can, nothing is a bother to them. The only critisism I have is the bed was toooo hard, but even then they tried to accomodate me by giving extra padding. It is rigtht near Bugis Junction Shopping Centre, Bugis Markets, the transport is right at the front door to Santosa(free bus, if you show your passport) busses and taxis on hand and the train station is a block away. The rooms aren't huge, but you aren't there to stay in your room the whole time and they are very clean. The breakfast is also good. I would recommend this hotel.

It has all the basics though the rooms are pretty small. While the hotel is clean and at a convenient location it is becoming increasingly expensive and therefore unaffordable, sadly. Will probably stay in other hotels nearby next time.

Went to Singapore for Grand Prix weekend when hotels jack up their rates. So we looked for a hotel that was relatively reasonably priced and one where we would still feel comfortable. We chose Ibis Bencoolen after reading the reviews here in Tripadvisor.

Location is pretty central and very accessible to all transport. Walk about a 5-10 minutes to Bugis MRT and the rest of Singapore is in your reach. If you're feeling lazy, walk around the hotel and there are malls and food shops and street markets.

The hotel is, as another reviewer said, clean, sleek and modern. That for me is the best way to describe it. Not fussy and not overly decorated, but has everything you need. Check-in was a breeze (prepaid stay) and we were up in our room within 5 minutes of arriving. We got a twin room which is a bit smallish but still has adequate space for 2 people. The bed was very comfortable and guaranteed a good night's sleep. My only suggestion to the hotel is to add a couple more clothes hangers. There weren't enough for 2 people to use for 5 days. I also wish they provided slippers.

The free wifi is a definite plus for this hotel. There are more expensive hotels in Singapore that still charge you for internet usage. There are 3 internet stations in the lobby as well and they have a printer ready for guests to use.

At the third floor is the laundry and ironing stations. Ironing is free and the washer/dryer are coin-operated.

All in all, we were very happy with the Ibis Bencoolen and would definitely stay here again. Next time, we will try their restaurant...
