We are planning to go back to Somerset Bencoolen this upcoming December (2013) but unfortunately they don't have the daily rentals anymore. Too bad as we loved the place a lot!!
We stayed there last year (September 2012) for 4 days. Got 2 rooms (2-bedroom and 1-bedroom) for all of us. The rooms were not spacious but were still ok as our kids were all still under 8 (all 4). Kitchen was nice and compact. Bathroom was nice, kids enjoyed the bath up.
The downside was that the main entrance was enclosed as there was MRT construction right on the street (and I think it's still going on until 2017?!). We all had to get off the taxi on the multilevel car park which was a bit of an unwelcoming situation.
But this was all gone once we were greeted by the nice staff (the front desk lady with black short hair was really helpful with my dad-in-law's lost luggage). Every time we got out (or got back to the hotel), the staff were always smiley and nice.
The other great thing about this apartment was the location. Not too far from MRT station (Bras Basah and Dhoby Ghaut), only 10 mins walk. Alsoooo... Only 5 mins walk from the free shuttle bus to the Universal Studios!!
All good... Could be better if the apartment had been equipped with in-room laundry.
