We needed big enough accommodation for family of six, this met our needs with affordable price. Nice rooftop pool. Road construction work outside was causing some access challenges, but we were well informed by the hotel beforehand, so it was no issue.

Some simple touches would make for a more comfortable environment e.g. cushions on the sofa. Still, the free wifi was efficient, the bed comfortable and the small kitchen area clean and well...

I stayed at the Somerset Bencoolen for an extended period of time while working in Singapore.It was literally my home away from home.
