      Individual guest reviews

        6.2

        The location of the hotel is excellent. The MTR is just a few steps away from the hotel. Opposite to the hotel, there is a food court and a convenient shop. For museum lovers, the National Museum of Singapore and National Art Museum are nearby the hotel.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        The staff were nice and the hotel is near some restaurants serving varied kinds of food. Its also walking distance the mrt Station and Orchard Road.

        Breakfast is not included. And we had a hard time locating the hotel due to the ongoing construction of mrt.

      • Single
        5.0

        The staff were very pleasant

        I did not like the cigarette burns all over the vanity unit in the bathroom and other places. The bath was very badly scratched and marked. The sheets were not long enough for the bed and I ended up with my legs on plastic!

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        Location is very good. it is noisy outside because of the construction but very quite inside. The room is enough max for 3 small people. The staff are friendly and helpful.

        You need to bring your personal things cause they also offer you toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb, 2 towels

      • Family with children
        6.2

        The location is good, we just walked to Orchard Road, only took 15mins. 7Eleven is just opposite this hotel, Thai's cafes nearby -open until 11pm. There's an mrt station which is still under construction and only will be open soon in 2017, hence I bet it will be even a better hotel location to be chose soon. I dont mind coming back to this hotel for my next visit.

        Only 1 plug point in my room- u see, we have to rotate charging our iPad,iPhone, Blackberry, camera,hair curler, boiled water..these gives so much trouble for us. There's a construction in front of the hotel, ask taxi driver to drop u at back of hotel. And when check in, request for higher level, u wont be disturbed with the noise. Thank God for me who is travelling with a 5mths old infant. Toilet gives bad smell from the pipe (worst the smell transfers to the room), I think its from next room of others. Hotel need to at least put some air freshener in the toilet.

        Location is good, close to city central

      • Family with children
        3.2

        No comfort at all just bare room no proper tea making 1 sacher of coffee and tea for a family of three ridicoulous and no milk europeans like milk in there tea and coffee we booked for breakfast if you could call it that rice scrambled egg ugh.the towels that were suppossed to be clean one had blood stains the other was frayed and still dirty the room was advertised as superior plus triple room what a joke as you can see we did not enjoy our stay

      • Family with children
        5.8

        Location is very good - close to City and shopping area.

        Room was very humid though on 12th floor. Basic consumbles not available in the bathroom such as soap.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        Sound location, very convenient transportation for taxi, MRT and bus. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

        The airconditioner is a little bit noisy at night

        convenience location

        The hotel need refurbish, too old and smell not good. The service also below hotel standard. Next time just put the price all in (tax & all fees included)

      • Family with children
        3.8

        Just the location

        The triple room is really small and the so call sofa bed is small, uncomfortable and pathetic. I would definitely pay more to stay in a better hotel in my future visits to Singapore. This hotel is really poor value for your money. I wasn't impressed with the hotel staff either.Won't rate this place more than 1 star.

      • Single
        6.4

        Staff friendly and helpful.

        The bedsheet didn't cover the mattrass,too short. The top of the table unit surface was dirty and greasy,no one had touched it. The corridors smelt of cigarette smoke. No net curtain for privacy to let light in while dressing.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Good for city trip because near from MTR stations

      • Family with children
        5.4

        The location. We only spent two days in Singapore and, being two ladies travellers, we looked for a hotel in a safe area. Bencoolen Hotel 81 is placed in a quiet street, close to the main attractions which can be reached by walking. The subway station is close too. There were some constructions going on by the time we were there, but that didn't bother much as they happened during daytime.

        The room clearly asks for major changes! The furniture is very basic and kinda old, the walls haven't been painted for centuries! As for cleanliness..... Sorry, but we saw a little bug crawling in the bathroom.... Another bad thing was breakfast: the hotel doesn't have a room for this, so clients are told that breakfast will be delivered in the room between 7 and 8! So... We woke up at 7, waited and one morning it came at 7:15, in the next at 8:15! The food was exactly the same both mornings, brought from McDonalds! Another bad thing: in the last morning there, we left the luggage, fully packed, in a corner of the room and went out, telling the receptionist that the room was ready for check-out and cleaning; we said we'd try to be back at 1 P.M., the designated check- out time. Unfortunately, the map of the city we got in the airport was not updated and we got into the wrong subway and arrived at the hotel a few minutes after 1 P.M. In 10 minutes we brought the luggage downstairs and... Surprise, we were charged for one hour delay!!!!!! Never again will we book a room at the Bencoolen Hotel 81!
