Hotel Bencoolen - Bencoolen Street
Ranked #160 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed September 27, 2013

For exploring Singapore the location is perfect - close to many museums & MRT stations, Raffles just down the road, etc. The rooms are quite small, but clean. The staff are friendly & helpful, & the included breakfast hits the spot. It seemed as if I spent half my stay waiting for the elevators which took forever to reach my floor.

The first thing I noticed about the Bencoolen inn were the size of its rooms. I was sharing a twin which boasted barely enough space for two single beds. In fact, they were so close the management would be as we'll to just skip the pretense and make it a double.

Breakfast was included, which was okay for something to fuel your morning but nothing special.

According to some of the floor plans, the hotel is meant to have saunas and steam rooms in the swimming pool changing rooms. What I found was no saunas, no steam rooms, and no changing rooms. And the swimming pool itself is more of a glorified jacuzzi.

The locations is great, and I have no complaints about the staff or the running of the place, which seemed smooth and friendly. That said, I feel like I could probably have got just as good a night for cheaper elsewhere.

was there during the F1 weekend,

this place was perfect as it was used only to sleep coz we were out the whole day everyday. cozy rooms, awesome and fast WIFI in the room, clean toilets. good location , near the MRT and short walk to orchard as well.

as you walk down there is a 7 eleven, coffebean , restaurants and a 24 hour kopitiam area if you are really hungry in the middle of the night :)

the only minor complain i had was the miscommunication of my bill being paid up front despite my booking saying it was a book now pay later kind of payment.

other than that, i would recommend this place for people who are on a budget ! this hotel isnt far from anything as everything is close by and the efficient public transport will be able to take you anywhere you want to go..

the construction outside did not disturb my sleep and the construction ends at 8pm everyday if i am not mistaken...

i would recommend people to buy the tourist pass from the MRT stations so you can get unlimited rides depending on the days that you pay for the pass of course!

With construction works going on inside and outside the hotel it was a disappointing stay. Noise kept us up during much of the night. During the refurbishment of the hotel they had better closed it down. Rooms were a bit outdated and due to the works there was no lobby, no luggage-room, no real breakfast-room, ...

Stayed here for a night. It's located in town and near to MRT station. Very convenience location. It's a small hotel but the room is clean with friendly service. However the room is not too spacious. Breakfast? Hmmm... not much of choice and the buffet even closed before 10 a.m.

Located right in town near MRT and Orchard Road. Small hotel but clean and friendly service. The price is reasonable. In case if you are not being particular about the view, the decoration or the facilities, just a clean room, convenience location with friendly price, this will be a good choice. You can safe a lot for your trip.
