This is an apartment hotel and the appartments are nicely laid out with lounge/kitchen, bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom. Condition and contents are good, though some ground in dirt and high up dust was present. The breakfast suited us as we prefer continental which was well catered for. The cooked items did not appear too appetizing. The reception staff...

I was fortunate enough to stay at Somerset Bencoolen for a business trip. It’s a service apartment and therefore you were able to find all of the necessary amenities in order to make it a home away from home. The staff was very friendly from the get-go: from lending me an electric converter to giving us tips. Despite the construction...

- There is massive construction work going on right in front of the hotel. They closed the road - The ambience in the lobby looks dull - The moment you step out from the elevator towards the apartment, the feeling became worst. It's old, gloomy, and that also described the inside of the apartment. - The worst Sommerset stay I...

We have just returned from a seven night stay at Somerset Bencoolen and found it suited us really well. The apartments are centrally located and within walking distance to many attractions, as well as only being a few minutes from an MRT station so transportation across Singapore was easy. Street access was limited by the construction outside, but there was...
