The Strand

The Strand is a bit of a grand old dame as far as Bencoolen Street goes, with its obvious advantage being that rooms are considerably bigger than the shoeboxes at some neighbouring hotels.

Photo of The Strand The trade-off is some terribly gloomy decor, but if you can get beyond the superficial the rooms have decent sized, comfy beds, a sitting area and good bathrooms -- with a tub. Ask for a room on a high floor and to the rear of the hotel to enjoy a quieter evening. The Strand will especially appeal to big families who don't want to split up because you can keep adding extra beds to their huge family rooms — even seven people is no problem. We'd heard about the service being curt, but compared to the Hotel Bencoolen just up the road, they're uber-friendly here (though to its advantage, the Bencoolen does have a swimming pool). Quoted prices include taxes, service charge and breakfast. The location is towards the southern end of Bencoolen Street, meaning you're about a 15-minute walk from the start of Orchard Road and just 10 minutes from the strip of bars and restaurants on Prinsep Street. The closest SMRT is Bras Basah.
