“Very happy with Ibis Bencoolen”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The hotel is simple thus affordable but of a good standard. This hotel is in a great location. It is diagonally across the road from Sim Lim (for IT shopping). Next door to Bugis Shopping area. A short stroll to Bugis station MRT. Free Sentosa shuttle bus stop directly across the street for foreigners only to take you to Sentosa Island for the casino and Universal Studios Singapore and other attractions. You could even take this bus to Marina Bay Sands as it makes a stop there to pick up passengers. Great buffet breaky with yummy hash browns, hotel style scrambled eggs and real pork bacon every morning (coming from malaysia, this is a treat as hotels only serves beef bacon). On the same row as the hotel there is a 7-eleven and a Guardian (chemist). You really can't ask for more. Oh yes, the hotel is modern and very clean. Staff are super friendly. I've finally found a hotel worth staying in for my next trips to Singapore.

The only thing I would fault this hotel on are the pillows which were too soft which is why I rated the sleep quality 3/5. I can always bring my own pillows next time!

great location, very accomodating staff, cozy & clean room. reasonably priced for a hotel room in this busy location. we enjoyed our stay in singapore thanks to this hotel. conveniently located for food trips (bugis flea market is just a short walk away from the hotel), day trips universal studios (there's a shuttle service going to resort world just in front of this hotel), or shopping on its nearby malls!!!!

Ibis on Becoolen is a great place to stay in Singapore. May be considered budget by Accor standards but is very well fitted out & maintained. The Lobby area is large enough, bright & very inviting. The check in/out proceedures are welcoming & friendly. There are adequate staff to care for all as it is quite busy at times. All the staff are engaging & pleasant. Only one observation-- Although this hotel is in a central city business area we are not all in a hurry business people. We were on holiday in Singapore! I felt at times a litttle more could have been done to assist with enquiries as to a tourist nature. For e.g. a little more time could be given than here is a brochure & you can read it for yourself. We would look for your local knowledge. But on the whole staff @ all areas were very good. Rooms were great, beds comfortable, furniture adequate & bay windows great for natural light. Also rooms don't feel small because of clever use of high ceilings. Gives feeling of space. Bathroom is roomy enough & shower is spacious. Cleaning staff were very friendly in greeting us each day & did a great job. Location of hotel is very good with short walks to a number of sights, etc. Would return to Ibis Bencoolen Singapore any time in this great city. Thanks Ibis.

We recently stayed at the ibis bencoolen and were very happy with the accommodation, especially for the price. It had everything we needed, plus a great breakfast and the room size was awesome for a hotel on the budget side in Singapore. Would def recommend to anyone.
