Went to Singapore for Grand Prix weekend when hotels jack up their rates. So we looked for a hotel that was relatively reasonably priced and one where we would still feel comfortable. We chose Ibis Bencoolen after reading the reviews here in Tripadvisor.

Location is pretty central and very accessible to all transport. Walk about a 5-10 minutes to Bugis MRT and the rest of Singapore is in your reach. If you're feeling lazy, walk around the hotel and there are malls and food shops and street markets.

The hotel is, as another reviewer said, clean, sleek and modern. That for me is the best way to describe it. Not fussy and not overly decorated, but has everything you need. Check-in was a breeze (prepaid stay) and we were up in our room within 5 minutes of arriving. We got a twin room which is a bit smallish but still has adequate space for 2 people. The bed was very comfortable and guaranteed a good night's sleep. My only suggestion to the hotel is to add a couple more clothes hangers. There weren't enough for 2 people to use for 5 days. I also wish they provided slippers.

The free wifi is a definite plus for this hotel. There are more expensive hotels in Singapore that still charge you for internet usage. There are 3 internet stations in the lobby as well and they have a printer ready for guests to use.

At the third floor is the laundry and ironing stations. Ironing is free and the washer/dryer are coin-operated.

All in all, we were very happy with the Ibis Bencoolen and would definitely stay here again. Next time, we will try their restaurant...

The price is reasonable..you pay what you want, Exellence service, beautiful room-not big but enough, good breakfast, and strategic location in bugis, just 3 minute walk to bugis street, 15 minute walk to mustafa centre, 10 minute walk to bugis station. If you wanna go to merlion, raffles city, vivo city and orchard, just hop on to bus at front hotel.

I think if if I have next trip to Singapore I'll go to ibis bencoolen hotel again.

Excellent location - very near to a lot of local restaurants that one must certainly try out and transportation was always easily available around. We felt it was in a very safe location, esp for 2 touring young ladies. Room was very basic but also very clean. The best part was the free strong wifi inside the room which was great for us when trying to find information or planning our day's itinerary. The staffs were always very busy so we were not able to have a chance to interact with them as they seem to be always running around. Overall, I say, this is one's best choice for a simple, no-fuss hotel experience when you intend to be out the whole day and just sleep over at night.

Room Tip: Higher floors so you are not directly facing the other low buildings or street.

Yes, the rooms are very small -- but considering that you're paying about half as much as you would for any other decent, clean, conveniently located hotel in Singapore, you can't beat this hotel for the price. The neighborhood is lively, the breakfast bountiful, the connections to transport convenient and the staff courteous, helpful and friendly.
