Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen
Ranked #67 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This hotel is conveniently located to the main strip shopping district. The rooms are pretty tiny, but they serve their purpose. We never had any noise problems. There's a bar downstairs with some interesting libations.

Room Tip: good location

Great to hear that you found the hotel conveniently located and accessible to Singapore’s Shopping Paradise!

We are glad that our rooms met up to your expectations and I have to agree that Le Bar serves an interesting concoctions of drink, especially our very own ‘Signature ibis mocktail’.

Stayed there for a business trip. Overall it was good; clean and recent. It was my first time in Singapore so I can't compare it with other hotels. Staff were friendly but they don't seem to be knowledgeable enough for touristic information. When I asked one of them for the closest hop on hop off touristic bus station, he didn't know where it was and he refereed me to their local bus lines which made me more confused. I will not stay it next time because I found the location was also so so for me.

This hotel is pretty much slap bang in the centre of everything you will want in Singapore. The MRT is a couple of minutes walk away and Bencoolen St market is on your door-step.

I had a problem with my shower which meant that I had no hot water for a day. The staff were so helpful and allowed me to keep the room until after my business meetings were over so I could change into my civvies for the flight home.

Stayed there on a two night stopover. Central location, quiet and clean room, smiling and efficient service, copious buffet breakfast, very good value for money particularly in conjunction with their special rates. Free wifi. Expectations for a budget hotel in Singapore fully met if not actually exceeded.

A well-rounded hotel that suited our little family of two adults and one 4-year-old. The location is conveniently close to the Bugis Street markets, Little India, and the MRT. The hotel room was a bit small and basic but very clean and comfortable; the queen bed was just big enough for the three of us (though I can't imagine doing this much longer as our boy is getting so big!). Service was fine and the the buffet breakfast at Taste was pretty nice (breakfast was included in our rate, otherwise we would have been quite happy eating the much cheaper local food that can be found near the hotel). DO take note of the free shuttle bus service to the Resorts World Sentosa at the bus stop in front of the Summer View Hotel just opposite Ibis Hotel.

Hotel was nice and clean, rooms had tv and tea and coffee facilities and hairdryer. We had a shopping special so got the breakfast buffet included. What a magnificent buffet it was too. Hot cooked breakfast, pastries, cereals, fruit, toast, porridge , pancakes, asian foods but I won't bore you listing them all.
Staff friendly and efficient. I had booked a queen bed accidentally but they changed to two singles. No problem. Close to MRT and shopping malls. Includes left luggage and they even had scales to weigh.
