            The place is quite good for location and convenience. After getting out from the MRT, there is a Food Republic. I found this very nice since I just have to transit for one night so I found this a very strategic place to stay.

            Base on reviews, I wasn’t expecting much but we actually had a good stay in Hotel Bencoolen. It was not a fancy hotel but a comfortable place to stay. Staff were nice. Our room was cleaned everyday. They provide toiletries and bottled water. They change the towels daily. Fast check-in and check-out. Good location near Bencoolen MRT, Food Republic and walking distance to Bugis Junction. We would definitely stay here again.

            Great value for money and good location!”
            We stayed in a deluxe room with 2 twin beds without breakfast. Our stay was great, the value for money was good. It was near the MRT station. A lot of food stuff near in Bugis. Easy to roam around the city because of the proximity of the MRT station. The room is just small but already enough for two, the toilet and water was also good. There was just one staff at the reception who was not that accommodating but other than that most of them where polite and friendly especially Pachi (the hotel bellboy). If you are just looking for a place to sleep at night, and you would want to spend most of the time in the city then this is a good place to stay, especially in terms of value for money.

            Great service at this very well located hotel close to mrt and 10 minute walk to orchard ave, around 15 minutes to marina area. The hotel does need an upgrade but it's fine for a few nights. Nice small pool and gym area. You can use pools and showers after check out. The staff are extremely helpful. Will order grab taxi for you which is far cheaper than taxi. Breakfast is average but walk down to corner opposite mrt and toast offers a fantastic breakfast.

Masjid beside, Catholic, Methodist and other churches 5min away. Good room space. Room facilities (aircn, tv,safe,closet, ref, kettle, hot shower n tub, 2! roomkeys) very nice. Jacuzzi/small pool, open air gym. Little concerns, tub plug didn't work, only 10 tv channels, nicer if there was ironing, ice bucket, vacuum when fixing room. Will always consider this hotel.

            It was my first time to stay here and I must say that the location is very convenient. The staff are so accommodating and friendly. Our only issue was the air conditioning unit in our room since the room temperature tends to get warm despite having set the temperature to the lowest. Apart from that, all is good. I would love to stay here again.

            Our family loved Hotel Bencoolen. The location is right across the MRT station and bus station. Food Republic and convenience stores are also nearby. All the staff are friendly and accommodating especially the bellboys and the receptionists. We were also able to check-in early as soon as we arrived. Rooms were great and they did take note of our request for a connecting room which was very convenient for our family. It could have been a perfect stay if it weren't for the internet connection speed of the hotel's free wifi. All throughout our stay, it was below 1.0 mbps which is really disappointing and awful. We can't even browse or stream properly with the extremely poor connection speed - considering that we always thought Singapore internet connection was always fast. This was kind of a deal breaker for us, but other than that, everything else was great and we will definitely recommend and stay again at Hotel Bencoolen.

            Pros : The BellBoy was nice & helpful. Water dispenser was available for free to refill our water bottles at the 2nd floor. The hotel location is very near to Bencoolen MRT station, 7-11 & Food Republic food court. Cons : At first, the hairdryer didn’t work & AC wasn’t cool enough, but the hotel technician managed to fix it soon after we told it through the BellBoy. The buttons for “clean up the room” & “do not disturb” both didn’t work, so we manually asked the receptionist to clean up our room. The WiFi worked but the speed wasn’t fast enough.

            The glass door in the shower is broken, water spilling onto the entire bathroom floor. The fridge is filthy, obviously it is not checked and cleaned regularly. Hygiene status is questionable. Only one access key card was given for a twin bedroom, requested for another key card, but was told "We're running out of access key cards" I advise to bring your own hair dryer. The hairdryer looks very old, I'm afraid it might short-circuit. Bellboy is friendly and helpful, constantly offering help to guests. Plaza Singapura is only 8 mins away within walking distance.

            Poor service. I booked a superior room but they gave me another room that is small and crappy. I requested for a change and asked for my original booking, but they NEVER gave the room that i originally booked, when i specifically said I want the superior room that i have booked — and i booked the room a month in advance and stayed for 5 nights. Yet, they said they prioritize their guests that are staying for 6 nights. Never again.
