I have been a fan of the Singapore IBIS Bencoolen for a number of years (see earlier reviews). I love the uber efficient, but very functional rooms (means sparse) and the no nonsense approach to lodging needs. The IBIS Novena is identical to its sister property in all respects except the employees have yet to establish a strong espirit de corps. As a result the service was very ordinary.
Rooms are small but functional ~ great for one busy executive but hell for 2 persons There is a small but well designed bathroom, but on this occasion the water pressure was barely adequate. Great free wireless access and rapid check-in/check-out.
The major downside is the very poor location ~ no it is not near the subway; 10 minutes walk in the Singapore heat makes it impractical. Getting taxis can be very iffy.
