my friends and i recently went to singapore and stayed at hotel bencoolen. visitors shouldn't expect too much because there is an ongoing construction for a train line which will be completed in 2015. as a result, there are barriers around the hotel to prevent dust from seeping in. still, this is a very conveniently located hotel and the construction...

We booked two connecting rooms and arrived late in sg around 10pm, so we decided to hold our meeting with (4 local business partners, and they are dressed decently) to gather in our room to have the short meeting before our next meeting tmr morning. was denied and given the LAW saying strictly no visitors after 10pm. oh my god,...

Be very careful with the management of this hotel. I went for the Formula 1 in Sept 2012 which has a 20% surcharge which i was happy to pay however they increased my original booking price by 57% and only informed me two days before my arrival, which caught me out. By this time it was too late to look...

We had a little trouble with our booking ( done online) when we first arrived but the manager went above and beyond to compensate for the inconvenience. The street in front is under construction so the hotel was a little noisy and dusty. The breakfast which was included was average. The location was good for walking around and exploring the...

This hotel is in a very favorable location for those who want to sightsee in singapore as it is a mere 2 minutes walk to Bras Basah MRT station and is at the edge of Orchard Road, one of the major shopping hubs in Singapore. There is currently a construction being done right in front of this hotel which, according...

We stayed at this hotel recently when major reconstruction was going on in Bencoolen street in July 2012. Although this put the hotel at a slight disadvantage this was part of life that we were prepared to put up with. However the room was a shock, for a princely sum of $180NZ it was the smallest we'd ever stayed in...

Currently hotel suffer from constructions ongoing - entrance is almost entirely blocked by it making pretty bad first impression. Having breakfast on the street (tables and food are positioned on pedestrian part of the street) was bit unusual and maybe not very nice. Rooms are outdated, at least my room view was wall in about 5 meters from my room...
