The hotel location is excellent, being an old hotel you can't expect much even after the renovation.

Mrt station is just in front of the hotel and many attractions are just a walk away.

Show reviews that mention
It's our 3rd time in Singapore and Strand Hotel is my favorite hotel that we have stayed in. The size of the room is bigger than other hotels with the same rate. They were able to provide us a free baby cot and it's still spacious in our room. The location is great because it's near the bras basah mrt station (yellow / circle line) and there's also a newly constructed mrt station right in the front of the hotel (bencoolen station - blue / downtown line) but it's still close during our stay. There's also a nearby food republic, 711 and starbucks just across the street. You can also walk from the hotel to Orchard and Bugis if you like walking and want to explore more of Singapore. There are also bus stops few steps away. We were able to take the bus going to the airport. The staff were helpful and friendly. The price of the room service food is reasonable because the prices are the same when you eat outside.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!”
The Strand is nothing fancy but it is clean, well maintained, and staffed by friendly, helpful, and efficient people. However, beyond all that, the location is fantastic. Our deluxe room was small, high (8th floor) and on the side of the hotel away from the construction; we did not have any problem with noise from that but occasionally could hear other guests talking in the hallway outside our room. There was a TV, refrigerator and safe in the room. It seemed clean, with no stains on the carpet, furniture or linens and no cigarette smell. There was a shower with a decent flow rate and lots of hot water. The air conditioning worked well. The only amenities are slippers, toothbrush and paste, and a kettle with instant tea and coffee; there was gel soap in the shower/tub and by the sink. We had not expected to have washcloths but were surprised that there was no hand towel by the sink. However, I asked for an extra towel and pillow (there were only three in the room) before we went out for a walk; both were in our room when we returned. After that, we received three towels every day without having to ask again. The Strand is located within a couple of blocks of two subway stations for different MRT lines and will add a station to yet a different line once the one outside the front door is completed. This gives easy access to virtually all of the distant locations in Singapore. The hotel is also with a couple of blocks of the National Art Museum as well as the National History Museum. The latter is located in Fort Caning Park and this gives you easy access to a beautiful green space with nice hiking opportunities. A little further afield but still within easy walking distance are the Raffles Hotel, Little India, and Little Arabia. This being Singapore, there are numerous nearby hawker centers with their excellent and inexpensive street fare.
OCT 2-4, TWIN-BEDS, ROOM ON 10TH FLOOR, LOCATION, VALUE, COMFORT”
Pros: Spacious room for it's price, newly renovated, comfortable beds, aircond works great, bottled water and coffee/tea refilled everyday. Iron and hairdryer available in room. Clean towels and clean bathroom. Hot shower works great. Location is great, many bus stops across and around the block 2-5mins walk only. Closest station Bras Basah just across. 2mins train ride to Dhoby Ghaut Stn. The new blue line, Bencoolen station will open Oct 21st so it'll be more convenient coz it's just right in front of the hotel entrance. Used Grab to get picked up at the hotel or the taxi stand that's like 1min from hotel entrance. 24hr muslim food 5mins walk down the block, Food Republic just across the street and many other options all around the ares. Bugis+ and Bugis Junction just 10mins walk (actually less if you minus the traffic light crossings) Cons: none Previously tried other hotels around Bugis so now will make Strand a definite go to for it's value, space, comfort and location.
Convenient, Worth every penny”
This hotel is just a 3 minute walk from the nearest Subway station, which is Bras Basah (Circle Line) In front, there is undergoing construction of the subway extension for the downtown line, which will be the Bencoolen Station (DT21). So once it's done, Strand Hotel will be very very convenient because literally the station is just in front. It won't take you a minute to get there. The station is in its final stage and I think it will open soon. Hoping the rates of the Hotel will be the same, but in case it increases, it will still be worth it. The hotel is in a prime location, 5 min walk to National Museum of Singapore and same if you want to visit the Singapore Art Museum. In front, there's a 7-11, and a food hub just across the street. Staff are very friendly, you are allowed to leave your things in case you need to shop after check-out. The room is very clean and everything you need is provided. I will definitely stay here again for my next Singapore trip. :)
Excellent value for money ”
We were 3 couples staying for 2 nights over New Year's Eve in Singapore, between visiting other countries. We needed a budget hotel at a good location, but also needed spacious rooms to sort out our luggage. Strand Hotel is perfectly located near a food court, city centre, MRT stations, shops and attractions. I specifically picked Strand Hotel because the rooms are bigger than the modern budget hotels, and that was a very good decision. The staff at the reception are efficient, friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, towels and linen are good quality. Breakfast is good, and there is a food court just round the corner. A new MRT station is being built just outside the hotel entrance, but walkways are put up for pedestrians. We had a really good stay.
Exceptional Location ”
The reason you'll choose to book Strand Hotel is the Location. The Bencooleen MTR (Blue Line) is less than 10m walk. It's literally almost at the doorstep of Strand Hotel. Airport to hotel is approximately 50mins travel time using the MTR blue line. Bras Basah MTR Station (Orange Line) is also within 100m distance from the hotel. There's a food court across the hotel so need not to worry about getting hungry. Although the food court's last order is at 9:30pm. Attractions such as Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, are just 2-3 metro stops via orange line. Going to the Merlion Park is also easy using a bus which bus stop is located near the hotel. Bugis is roughly 10min walk. St.Joseph Church and Cathedral of the Good Shepered are both very near roughly 3min walk. The bed is comfortable. The space is big enough for 2 people with 2 medium luggages. There is still enough walk space. They provide very Basic Toiletries. No bidet. They do regular housekeeping and they change towels everyday. The man at the concierge is very helpful. I failed to get his name but he helped us bring our luggage to our room and was very kind to give us directions on how to get to Clark Quay. He also helped us bring our bags down the hotel when we checked out. Overall, we are happy and satisfied with our 3nights stay at Strand Hotel. They maybe considered at the older hotel but the building and rooms are maintained.
Convenient and budget-friendly”
Strand Hotel was on top of my list after reading the reviews and checking out the map. The hotel was less than 100 steps from Bencoolen Station (Blue Line - exit B). Food Republic and 7-11 were just across the street, the same with Starbucks. If I counted correctly, Strand was only 3-4 blocks away from Dhoby Ghaut station, Plaza Singapura, and if you're feeling active, you can walk straight to Somerset. So yes, the hotel is super near anywhere you want to go! As for our room and the hotel itself, it's not a 5-star hotel but the room (deluxe double) was actually spacious than I expected from the photos. The bathroom was a good size as well and I love that they have dispensers for soaps and shampoos versus small plastic bottles. It looks old and the sofa/chair in our room can use some upholstery work at least, to make it look new but overall, it's a good hotel!
Great value and great location”
We chose the Strand for price and location, but were pleasantly surprised by the great value! The room, though a bit smallish, was brand new and clean and had good extra amenities, such as a hair drier, a refrigerator and a safe. The location of the TV in the room was a bit odd - hopefully they'll eventually move it (I wonder if all room TVs are in the same position?). And the hotel location was excellent - easy walk to Bugis, Little India, lower Orchard Rd, Cannery Park, etc. It is a few steps to Bus 36 to the airport ($S2.50 one way) and very soon there will be an MRT stop directly in front of the hotel. We were quite satisfied with the Strand.
Excellent & very central hotel”
I stayed in Strand for a whole week (7 nights) and the location, room condition and all other aspects of the hotel were more than satisfactory. It is smaller hotel than huge ones (e.g. Carlton) with enormous lobbies and to me that made it even more special. Strand Hotel has friendly & helpful staff always ready to order you a taxi or give directions. My room had been freshly renovated - it was bight and spacious featuring a large screen TV, suitcase shelf, armchair and even a work desk. It was always neatly cleaned and there was no lack of closets etc for my things. It was the kind of room where your mind is at rest of busy city. I recommend the hotel to people who'd like to stay in a smaller but well-located hotel in the heart of Singapore.
I highly recommend this hotel. Spacious rooms, very clean and the coffee (nespresso). Food republic is just across the hotel. Bugis night market is just a walk away. Marina Bay is just 8 dollars (for grab). And I would like to mention their friendly staff Uncle Sam. We will definitely stay at Strand Hotel if given a chance to visit Singapore again. Not able to try their foods since we did not avail for the free breakfast.
Just outside the Bencoolen station at the new blue line, Strand Hotel is perfect for its location. It's a convenient ride to and fro the airport and basically everywhere else (Bugis and Bras Basah station nearby as well). It's easy to hunt for food as well! The rooms weren't the newest but they were huge compared to new Singapore hotels. I'm definitely staying here the next time. The best part, the shower was great!! Such a big plus.
AMAZING PLACE FOR A VERY AFFORDABLE COST!”
If you're looking for a CLEAN, LOTS OF SPACE, AFFORDABLE, GOOD LOCATION, and COZY place, The Strand Hotel is for you. Our stay was awesome and worth every penny. It's not expensive but you'll get the best quality of hotel here. From the bed, to the comforters, the very clean carpet, the VERY CLEAN bathroom, the amazingly neat room, the quick staff service, and room ambience, it is truly a good priced hotel. Will definitely stay here again when i come back to Singapore. Bus station is a few steps away. Food republic is across the street. Convenience store is again across the street. MRT station is a few walks away. Truly convenient!!
I stayed in Strand for 6 nights and enjoyed my stay very much.It's a good budget hotel in excellent location and only a few minutes walk to buses and Bras Basah subway station.Walking distance to Bugis and Orchard streets,many eateries and shops around. Room is nice and clean,comfy bed and fairy good WiFi.Breakfast is basic,but filling-was OK for me. 5 stars definitely goes for Strand Hotel's staff-they were very helpful,perfectly polite and had answers for every question! I highly recommend Strand if one is looking for budget hotel,but still a nice place to stay.
BEST CHRISTMAS EVER ”
! The hotel was hard to find at first because of the ongoing construction in front of it. It is along bencoleen street, beside rendevouz hotel. It is near mtr bras basah station, approx 5-10min walk. I think they're making a station at bencoleen so once that's done, the mtr is literally at your doorstep. There are a lot of resaturants nearby and if you're on a budget you'll also find hawker centres along the way. We're a family of four and we got a family room and it’s very spacious. They replenish your water, tea and coffee everyday. Everything was clean! From the carpet to the towels, linens, bathroom, everything! We had a late flight back home and the check out was at 12noon, but you can leave your belongings at the lobby, they'd put a net over your things and count your bags to make sure that nothing will be stolen. You can lock your bags to be sure. It's for free but you can give them a tip if you want. Will definitely choose Strand hotel again for our next Singapore trip
location and price”
It's first time I stay @strand hotel. Strand hotel has many advantages. Location near Brash Basah MRT Station, Bugis Junction, Halal Restaurant and Sim Lim Tower. Price include breakfast. Spacious room and clean. I recommend strand hotel for next visit to Singapore.
The Strand Hotel was convenient for the purpose of our visit to Singapore i.e. to watch the 2-days Singapore 7s. It is close to 2 MRT stations, affordable and has cafes around that are reasonably priced e.g. Food Republic. The staff were also very helpful. An opportunity for improvement is the free wifi provided was slow from the early evening to the early hours of the morning.
Transit Friendly, big Room, Clean”
Strand Hotel has a very good location in Downtown . About 15 - 20 minutes by Cab from Changi International. Room had cold A/C, plenty of room in each room. Older hotel but very clean. 10 minutes to the Cruise ship terminal via cab about $12 SGD. MRT light rail transit Bencoolen Station is right in front of the Hotel. Very easy to use transit system you can go anywhere using it. Hotel doesn't have a good restaurant but across the street is the Republic Food Court. Lots of food at a reasonable price. The staff is excellent and friendly and knowledgeable. The room cleaning staff is excellent.. Would go there again.
Strand hotel was great for what I needed which was a comfy and secure place to stay while I stayed 2 days in singapore. 1 min walk down to Bras Basah made getting around easy and convenient. I had a deluxe room which was newly renovated on level 7. Room was bright, practical, clean and comfy. The rooms are quite big for asian hotel standards so I was impressed. The bathroom had all new fixtures with rainwater shower. Air con was effective. Room also contained flat screen TV and bar fridge. Wifi was included for free. Breakfast was also included and while basic, was enough to start your day. Hotel close to 24hr food court, subway, coffee shop and 7/11. For people who want an affordable hotel in a good location close to the MRT, this was a really great stay for me
Reasonable, convenient and accessible”
It was our second visit in Singapore and since the first hotel that we availed is at higher rate this season, I tried to book Strands Hotel. The place is spacious, clean and quiet. Perfect to stay after roaming around Singapore especially when you are tired. The location is very accessible going to diners, train and bus stations. Staffs are easy to communicate with and knows what a guest needs. Will recommend the hotel.
Nice hotel with really good location”
Location is the best, the Bencoolen MRT station is just right in front. You can go across the road to get to another MRT station Bras Basah. If walk further down a bit from hotel, you get the bus station in front of Redesvous hotel to everywhere you like. If you like some walking, not far away is the National art museum, national museum of Singapore. It takes only 2 stations to Chinatown, one station to Esplanade (access to Suntec city, Marinasquare). Do a bit of walking you get to Albert court hawker Centre, Bugis junction, and even nearby there are plenty bars, restaurants and shopping Centre at Bugis, Orchard is within 20 min walking. If feel want to cycling, there is OFO bicycle for rent too! Hotel wise, they do housekeeping everyday, very clean and spacious room. We have really good sleep there. Highly recommended!
