This hotel is good. It’s clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast is very good. We had an issue with our room which was resolved quickly and a new room was found for us. The location is ok because the MRT is exceptional, although the walk (~600m) gets a bit old in the heat after a few days. We stayed as part of our vacation club, however I would not choose this hotel if I had to pay the advertised rate

Location is ok for where I needed to be for a few days. It's very basic, so I would not stay longer. The is hardly any space and because of that, it is simply furnished... Almost spartan. TV was on the blink for some channels (bad reception?), towels came frayed sometimes, and there were streaks on the outside of the window (when did they last clean that?). One day, they missed cleaning the room and it was addressed when I pointed that out, so all good... But what system do they use, that this can actually miss cleaning a room?

Stayed 1 week here. A very nice experience. All is perfect. Cleaning lady was very helpful. She made our bed every day, although we're told cleaning was on alternate day. It's really nice touch, as we're busy the whole day, surprised by a nice and tidy bed at night. I'd like to compliment to Jansen, the staff in restaurant. Drop several hundred bills on the floor, he return them to me. Very professional. Definitely recommend this hotel

I booked this SHN hotel for my helper whom we had to isolate due to to Covid. We did not have the sleeping arrangements to accommodate her at home as being my elderly mother's caregiver, she slept with her. The helper's room was occupied by our second helper who was also in isolation due to Covid. Hence we had to find alternative arrangements urgently and we are so grateful to the Ibis Novena for taking our helper in. The staff were super helpful with making sure our helper got her meals delivered up to her room. Someone from reception called in the check on her everyday to see if she was alright. I could not ask for more professional and sincere service. Breakfast was varied and very generously proportioned! We did have to pay a slight premium on the room on some nights - somehow during the isolation period, every mid-price ranged hotel was fully booked. There was one night the room rate was $400 plus when it normally is around $279. But it was important that our helper was not uncomfortable and we couldn't move her anyway since she was in isolation. Thank you so much Ibis Novena for taking care of our helper, and for helping us out during a very challenging time. It's really much appreciated! Tip: The hotel is well located in the Balestier area. There are plenty of food places to eat and Zhong Shan Mall is across the road. This helped reduce our Grab Express delivery costs because we could easily find food within a short distance from the hotel.

Dear Lynette, Thank you for taking the time to detail your maid’s experience. We understand that it’s not a pleasant experience to be isolated, so the least we could do was to ensure that she was comfortable. It was our pleasure to look after her during these testing times.

Sadly, this hotel has had a huge change, all downwards. The website promises all sorts of services that are no longer provided - a fact that would be illegal in most countries, perhaps even in Singapore. The major one for me is the shuttle bus to the MRT station. Advertised but no longer provided, and the management at the hotel are aware of this!!!! So, an 81 year old faces a 800 metre walk up a steep hill to the station. Impossible for me. I would never have booked this hotel if I had been aware. Other services have also vanished. What was a 3 star hotel offering 4 star service has become a two star dump with surly staff and a devil may care attitude. Rooms are still adequate, beds are comfortable, service is crap. Do not use this hotel unless you have a car or your business and interests are confined to Belestier. Overpriced second class budget??? hotel

Dear ausielad2014, Thank you for taking the time to detail your most recent stay at the hotel and please accept our apologies for the shortfalls. We would like to take this opportunity to also clarify a few points. You are correct that at this stage we do not have the shuttle service, however please this was never intentional. Unfortunately, we encountered a system glitch which trigger previous hotel descriptions stating this service was available. Other than this, all other services have been restored. Please rest assured we will also look into your comments relating to the staff. This is surprising as normally we received positive feedback relating to this facet of the business. That being said, our biggest regret was the challenges you faced were not highlighted to me during your stay so that reasonable solutions could be found for the inconvenience cause. I do hope that we have another opportunity to engage and please do feel free to reach our directly to the hotel to discuss this matter further. Kind regards,

Room was comfy bathroom very clean whole room was very clean, staff were amazing nothing was too hard for them. Didnt hear any other people in any of the other rooms so pretty quiet.Loved that they had a free shuttle bus which took us to MRT where we took an awesome ride on trains to get to where ever we wanted to go to was very cheap to travel around singapore.. Great place to stay we will be returning. One thing i found was you cant get lost... so easy to travel.

After three months spent in rural areas in Papua New Guinea, this hotel was just what I needed. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. I had all of what I needed in the room. The room was just spacious enough for Southern Asia standards, but I have seen even smaller rooms and bathrooms. I really loved the breakfast. On the down side, the hotel is not so close to Singapore downtown, and closest metro is a 10 minute walk away. Staff is helpful and friendly.
