Having travelled to Singapore on business a few times - I like to stay where things are predictable. Ibis Bencoolen always delivers!
This time I chose not to stay - it was a late trip and the room rate had soared (something that is not so predictable). Have stayed on 3 previous trips.
I did meet a client for drinks and thoroughly enjoyed it (as always). The lady serving was very friendly and did a great job of promoting the hotel - she really enjoys working at this particular Ibis, it showed, and later told me.
This place is so central, with easy access to Bugis MRT, taxi, Sim Lim Sq, Burlington, Orchard Rd is an easy walk away.
Rooms are small, (very clean, simple layout). This factor pushes back on the value score,
Food is fine, predictably! But with so many good eats around (it is only a short walk to Arab St or Little India) take a stroll and discover what is around the area.
This hotel is so central - get out and enjoy its location.More
