When we were searching for a place to stay in Singapore we were keen to find apartment-style accomodation as opposed to a hotel. We have a 4 year old son and wanted him to have his own space and have the ability to put him to sleep and not have to go to sleep at the same time! We found this and much more at Somerset Bencoolen. The apartment (we stayed in a 2 bedroom one) was fantastic - modern, 2 bathrooms, great kitchen & lounge. Breakfast was provided every day in the dining room on the 5th floor. The pool area (on the roof) was fantastic with amazing views and a separate pool, spa and children's paddling pool and playground. Our 4 year old wanted to be in the pool almost every minute of the day! The staff were all exceedingly friendly and provided excellent service. The aprtments were close to transport and taxis were always coming past (max of about AU$5.00 to go most places). We walked to most places (even with a 4 year old in tow) so as you can tell it wasn't far from anything. My husband loved it due to its proximity to all the fishing stores in the Bugis area! Suffice to say we loved it and will certainly stay there again when we return to Singapore.
