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...

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...

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.
