Hotel Bencoolen is very good hotel. The room is very modern. The location is strategic because we can walk to Bugis Street and Arab Street. If we want to eat halal food, there are Al Jilani resto and Pu3 near Bencoolen. If we want to take MRT, we can walk to Dhoby Ghaut Interchange or Brasbasah. If we want to... More

In the past, we have stayed at some of the... More

The hotel is situated on a building site next to a mosque and a karaoke pub so don't expect a moments rest. We were told we had been upgraded on our arrival. It actually meant we were given a damp room with a view of a brick wall in all directions. Poorly decorated and the step up into the bathroom/toilet... More

The breakfast is very minimalist, boiled noodles with tomato sauce. But this is a budget hotel that is close to the tourism places (Merlion,... More
