My husband and two children and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment here 3 weeks ago. We loved every minute of it! The clean apartments that were spacious, had comfortable beds, good showers were really modern and very user friendly. Plus the breakfast each morning from the breakfast lounge was always well presented and fresh, and the staff only... More

I sent staff to Singapore regularly to attend expos as well as salon supply shopping. I chose Somerset Bencoolen because of the close distance to Bugis. I find the apartment to be adequate for a short stay, my staff are always happy here. The interior is a little dated, but that's not a big deal to them. I highly recommend... More

Stayed three nights at the end of a three month tour across Asia. After reading comments about the MRT works I asked for a quiet room which we were given and indeed we hardly heard any construction-related noises during our stay. As the road is closed and there is hoarding everywhere the first impression isn't amazing but don't let that... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. Having seen previous comments on the MRT construction, we requested for high floors facing away from the site and an extra bed.

First of all be warned there is MRT construction work directly outside this hotel and work continues through the night, secondly MRT access currently isn't the nest as the nearest station is a circle line station so requires you to change trains to get almost everywhere although this will change when the new station is completed.
