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 room, which goes on into the wee hours of the night. Needless to say, the noise is intense and not great for rest or sleep.
We have stayed at various Somerset/Ascott hotels in Asia, and this is the least well done, but it still is more than adequate and acceptable for our needs.
The location is near a metro stop and easy access to food and grocery stores.
