“Good Budget Hotel in Singapore”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Its a good hotel especially because it takes care or your budget. Also the breakfast at this hotel is better than many other expensive hotels. The rooms are clean, decent although a bit small. The bathroom is also very decent but again it's a bit small. All in all it's a very nice budget hotel expecially good for a stop over.

I travelled to Singapore for a business meet and stayed for 3 nights at the IBIS Bencoolen. First of all i must say that the location f the hotel is actually quite amazing – bang in the centre of the city. They have a very nice night market just around the corner where one can spend hours browsing for knick knacks and funky clothes. The Sim Lim Square (around 200 m away) is the place to go if you are looking at electronic goods.

Coming back to the hotel – the attendee at the reception was quite helpful and check in took barely 5 mins. The reception area leads to the coffee house and the bar. I stayed on the 8th floor and though the view was not much (just other buildings etc) the room was quite comfortable, though a bit small by normal standards, with all the amenities one can expect in a business hotel. I am quite particular about bathroom cleanliness – had no complains about that though.

Morning buffet breakfast was quite varied (with some dishes changing over the course of 3 days that I stayed there), the staff quite polite and helpful when we inquired about places to see around the hotel. The coffee house served quite a nice apple pie when I strolled in after my evening excursions of the neighbourhood area.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the Bencoolen Street

Needed a stopover hotel in transit and this one fit the bill. Clean, fresh, close to Bugis train station for ease of access to airport. Breakfast was also very good.

We had a most enjoyable two-day stop-over at Ibis on Bencoolen. The room was in top condition, albeit on the small side, with very comfortable beds, excellent linen and a functional bathroom. The hotel has a good restaurant, and is otherwise well located to Little India, a food court and other dining options.The stand-out feature was the positive attitude of the hotel's youthful staff, who facilitated check-in and check-out to best suit our flight times, and provided first-rate advice on bus travel and shopping options. Will stay there again!

Good hotel for short budget-constrained (sortof..) stays in SG.
Tiny rooms but modern & well furnished, with wifi access. Very decent breakfast.
Location convenient although the 5/10 mins walk to the nearest subway station can be unpleasant in the outside heat. In the morning, allow some time to grab a taxi, as the queue of hotel guests leaving can become quite large.
