Very friendly, helpful staff. Location was excellent being close to Clarke Quay MRT and Chinatown under 10 minute walk away. Rooms clean and comfortable.
Sadly we did not have time to use the roof top facilities (spa pool & sun deck)

The hotel was about a 3.5 star. Rooms were very small and barely enough space for 2 people's suitcases. The staff was nice and courteous, no problems there. The location was good but there are several Hotel Bencoolen....so when walking it is hard to get to the right one. Finally had to take a bus because at the wrong end of town. The breakfast was basic in the little space provided. Once inside the door....small sitting area for waiting around and eating. Staff was very nice. Location was good, restaurants around the corner and other stores. Will just have to know your way around Singapore, I was only there 2 days. Not enough time to get my boundaries...catching a cruise ship. May not stay here again only because of size of room. Cost was affordable but now I see why....
Definitely would not have kids in a small room, not sure if they have larger rooms for more money or lofts. Most hotels at 3-4 star have small rooms....must go to 5 star for larger rooms it appears.

Nice small hotel centrally located, quiet street considering that it is Singapore, friendly staff. The pool is quiet small more of a spa. Breakfast starts a bit late for the early starter but is fine.

We stayed here for 3 nights with 2 kids and 2 adults in 606 loft room.
The room is spacious and very clean.
Walking distance to Clarke Quay, MRT station, Raffles, Fullerton, and Merlion Park.
The staff is nice and helpful.
Nothing to complain about this hotel. Everything is good.

Positive:
Very conveniently located to explore the city, spacious room, comfortable bed, good water pressure, excellent WiFi connection (see picture), hot water kettle available, air conditioning worked well, nice little pool/spa area, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.

Negative:
The breakfast area is so small that we had to wait for ten minutes until two seats opened up. Food was not replenished very quickly. They definitely would need more than just one person in the breakfast area and a dish washer (the person had to wash the dishes by hand).
In the bathroom there was no toilet brush. Hotel was also a little pricey.

Overall:
Despite the rather bad breakfast experience I would recommend this hotel.
