excellent location

room was quite good but could have done with somewhere to sit down in front of a mirror and a bit more hanging space. the bathroom was very clean and the shower excellent. the staff were very helpful and kept our luggage for us on departure day as we had a late flight. Nothing was too much trouble. Location was good and very near to MRT and shops.

Exceptional hotel, great rate

I arrived on an early flight and went to the hotel for an early check in. They had a room available for me with no additional costs and I was in the room by 9AM local time. After traveling 27 hours, I was VERY thankful! The front desk service was great and the room was clean and spacious. The only down part was the bed - it was rock hard but I didn't care! I slept like a baby anyway!

There are plenty of eateries much cheaper then the hotel close by from local foods to a McCafe two streets over by the MTR station (subway).

In room WiFi

Stayed here 3 nights everything was fine room wise. The in room WiFi did not work in my room. After six calls and three visits to the front desk nothing was done and no solution offered. If the WiFi had worked or the staff offered me a solution I would recommend to stay here but at this time I will not recommend a stay here if you need Internet in your room.

Perfectly situated for exploring everywhere

The Ibis Bencoolen is perfectly situated for exploring any part of Singapore. There are numerous convenience shops and eateries on your doorstep, and Bugis Street/Village/Junction mere minutes away. Only a couple of blocks from Orchard Road it's also perfectly feasible to walk straight into town ( as we did on our first night, down past the river #. You also have not one but three MRT stops # Bugis, Dhoby Ghaut, and Bras Basah ) all less than 10 minutes walk away, so can get out and explore any part of the island you wish with ease. The rooms are not huge, but are quiet, attractive, and very well appointed. The staff are also most helpful and attentive, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Not Bad

Singapore is expansive in general. So this hotel compared to other hotels in Singapore might be fine but comparing with other Asian cities the price is very expansive and services are not amazing. Very compact room and some of the staff were not friendly. Also my visit to Singapore was during the formula 1 race which added to the high cost of the hotel, I guess.

Great place.

Small room but more than adequate for two people. Close enough to walk to Little India, Arab Quarter, Bugis Street Singapore Flyer ans Orchard street. Restaurant was good but lots of good value eating places near by. Staff helpful and friendly. Fair currency exchange in hotel.

Excellent Hotel

This hotel was great. We were there for 5 nights. The restaurant was OK; the breakfast was not that good and it was overpriced. We ate across the street in an American fast food place. The staff was very gracious and they let us check in early.

Fantastic hotel

Great hotel for the price, very friendly and helpful staff. Good location, but a taxi / walk to the downtown. Not a problem as taxis are so cheap. Will be returning to Singapore and definitely staying in this hotel.
