ibis Singapore Novena
Ranked #106 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed November 1, 2011

Hotel Ibis Novena is a new premise and very few cabs actually knew that there existed a hotel..!! Secondly this area is a residential area and becomes too silent during the night (after 7pm). Nothing close by, no malls, no shopping, no eateries (especially the hotel ibis menu has only 15 items in all). The closest place nearby is 8-10 SGD by cab.. 15mins walk to the nearby MRT station..

Not at all suggested for family or couples .. its a business hotel for executives who have their own means..

Room Tip: Stay on 4th floor and above..

When i first stepped into the room, it smelt heavily of cigarette smoke! It's supposed to be a non-smoking establishment.
I used my own perfume to freshen up the room, but when returned later, it still smelt of cigarette smoke.
I did bring it up to the receptionist who offered to move me 3 floors down, however i decided to put up with it.

Friendly Staff, conveniently available amenities and pleasing service make Ibis Singapore Novena a pleasure to stay at. Even though my colleague and I were booked for a short while there, after a long day out in the city it was nice to look forward to a good night's rest in their comfortable rooms.

we stayed here as the hotel was pretty much the cheapest 'western standard' hotel that we could find in singapore. had a few problems with the booking as i had pre-ordered the $1 special breakfast but told upon check in i had to pay full price. they eventually honoured the deal i had booked under. Thankfully they did as the breakfast really want worth much more than $1. very poor!!!

the hotel is quite compact so not very quiet. there is building work going on nearby so dont expect a sleep in. the rooms however were clean and modern. there is a MRT only 5 mins walk away which whisks you straight to orchard road in under 10 mins.

all in all was ok. i'd choose it again but only if there wasnt anything else cheaper.

Room Tip: ask for room away from the lift well at end of corridor

i booked the hotel as early as Feb. 2011 to attend a wedding of a friend on Oct. 2011.. When I checked the rate, I found out that my rate of 148 for first night and 158 for second night was way above the rate which my friends got (S$ 120) when they booked at almost the same time. Further the advertised walk in rate was the same at S$148. I felt I was robbed since very early bookings was advertised to be a "special introductory" rate.

We were in a group of 4 adults. We stayed at the Ibis as a stopover on our way to Europe and then again on our way back. I must say I was a little apprehensive after reading reviews, but I had already booked on line through an opening special. Our rooms were more than adequate, I must say this bed was the most comfortable I had slept in over the 3 weeks of our holiday.
The staff in the restaurant were fantastic, very accomodating and even new what drinks we all had at happy hour, served with a friendly smile and a bit of a chat to boot. The one thing I would mention though is the fridge that is supplied in the room is absolutely pathetic. Ours did not work, neither did the other couples. More like a doll house fridge. On the whole our experience was a pleasant one. Novena square is a 10 minute walk away and orchard st is 3 stops on MRT. Cabs are so cheap that we caught one to anywhere we wanted to go. Very frequent as well.
