Hotel Bencoolen - Bencoolen Street
Ranked #160 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Location was great that's why we booked this hotel but the room was small.
Swimming Pool wasn't great and the staff wasn't very friendly. There was some kind of construction going on in the area by the time we were there, what makes it to look even worst.
I would book somewhere else next time if I go to Singapore.

Great location, super cool rooms and affordable pricing. Breakfast could be better (mainly more choices...) but all usual stuff is there. All staff here very polite, friendly and helpful.Definitely going back there at some point!

Very good hotel, clean, confortable and totally new.
Well located, near of the city center and of the metro.
Also they have swimming pool.

In the breakfast is included toast, eggs and chinese food.
I am sure that it is a good option.

Location wise Hotel Bencoolen is very good, Rooms are spacious in comparison to newer hotels, Breakfast is decent and Room Wifi was good. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Though MTR construction is going-on at the entrance but that's not disturbing as they don't work at night.

As the title says, this hotel suffers somewhat from dust and noise from subway construction right in front of the hotel. But if all you need is a room to retire to it does the job. Ask the receptionist for a room on the quiet side and it might be OK. Good location, walking distance from Orchard. Breakfast okay - staff friendly and accommodating.

Basically all you need in a Hotel room. A bed, a shower, A/C and everything fairly clean. The hotel is located on the east end of orchard road which is nice. For that reason the price is still ok. I probably would stay there again.

Stayed in Hotel Bencoolen for 3 nights. The receptionist was indeed very helpful and accommodating (forgot to ask his name, though). The staff were all pleasant and always greet you with a smile. The room they gave me was a single room with a queen size bed. Immediately, I noticed how everything is in its proper place, the cleanliness is superb. I can honestly say that rooms are well maintained because they clean it everyday and change the bed sheets too. The hotel is practically proximal to all popular tourist destinations like the Orchard road, Bugis+, Bugis Street, Marina Bay Sands etc. Dining is never a problem as you can choose freely where to eat, ranging from the student meal to the high end restaurants. Bencoolen Street is currently experiencing some major renovations for the MRT set-up, so expect some construction noises at times but its hardly annoying anyway. For a budget traveler like me this is the BEST deal.
