The room is very small.I was expecting a lot more based on Room charge.But its not completely worth the amount i paid.

Many restaurants are available within 2 minutes walk.Train station is also very near to Hotel.

Room Tip: you can find a better hotel with additional charges.But i will not recommend this hotel at all

We booked this Hotel due to its location. However, we were extremely disappointed to note that entire from side road is under construction for Metro station. This caused lot of inconvencience and noice throughout the day as we were just on 3rd floor. We had booked a three bed room. Though the bed on Mazennine was comfortable for our daughter, main bed was very cramped with no place even to keep suitcases.Staff was good natured which is plus. Hotel is located on circle line which is poorly connected and for going anywhere, one has to change at Dhobi ghaut.

Room Tip: don't take room on road side until 2017 when metro is expected to be ready.

I used my return trip for a stop over in Singapore to see what has happened and to inform myself as to what is planned to happen. V Hotel Bencoolen is ideally located for a business stop over. The hotel is very clean, the staff is very helpful and accommodating. My room was small, but offered all I needed and looked for. The furnishings were very suited for my purposes. Free wi-fi and free bottles of water seem to become standard around the world, but worked very well at V Hotel Bencoolen. Sure it is not the Carlton or Mandarin, but if you look for value for money V Hotel Bencoolen is the place to book.

Room Tip: I had a room on floor 9. If you look for a quiet spot and a good night's sleep V Hotel Bencoolen...

Good comfy bed (though it is of Queen size). Good and accessible location, very nearby to Orchard and Bras Basah Rd and City Hall. However, the shrudder noise from nearby construction seems annoying. The room is small but clean. Called housekeeping twice, but no response. No view at all to see from hotel room. No complimentary newspaper and parking - would be good if they have these complimentary services. Checking-in was smooth. Not enough sugar/ coffee and tea supply. Toilet is clean though small. Overall, an average for budget stay - value for money. Can be recommended for short stay.

The room is small, i came from Hong Kong, hotel rooms in hong kong are small too but never experienced something like this. No view, facing another room, after we put in our bags, we cannot even walk on the floor.
Hotel rooms in Japan are small too but they are functional and provide many services thru rending machines and even small hotel, they provide breakfast.
I don't know what they charge a high price but the facilities are so poor. It was a very unpleasant experienced. Will never stay in this hotel again.

Have such a great location. 2-3 mins walk from bras basah satation with a lot of restaurants, fastfood and malls nearby. clean rooms but slighty expensive for a no-breakfast room. Small room like ibis but i Will definitely recommend it to others too.
