We stayed 4 nights at the Ibis Novena on our recent trip to Singapore. Although the rooms are small, they are adequate for overnight. Breakfast was basic, but for those who like bacon with their eggs you'll be disappointed as there is only 'chicken bacon'. As has been said by previous reviewers the fridge is tiny but for eating out there are restaurants etc over the road. The walk to Novena MRT is not too far and taxis are available, although our taxi driver from the airport didn't seem to know where the Ibis Novena was located.

You might consider the following 2 "negative" points regarding this hotel: 1) there is no swimming pool ; 2) the fridge in the room is very small (1 box of chocolate + 1 can and it is full).

Otherwise it's a fun, reasonably priced hotel to stay with a family (2 parents and 2 kids < 6 years).

The reception is friendly. There are only 2 (sometimes 3) desks open and sometimes lots of groups arriving or leaving - so you may wait a bit at times. But kids loved to discuss with other guests or play with the automatic doors (between cold AC and 30 degree outside). And the reception can definitely book a taxi faster you could find one outside (free service)!

There is only one place to eat (breakfast, lunch or dinner). Breakfast is there with a good buffet, with a good mix between occidental and asian food. We tested dinner upon arrival and the cook can easily accomodate to your needs (in our case: no spices for the smallest kid).

The room easily accomodated the 2 parents and the 2 kids. If you like space, a bathtub and 4 beds, find another hotel. But if the hotel is just a comfortable place to sleep - the rest of the day is spent outside, this hotel is for you. The bed is large enough for the parents and one kid. The bathroom has everything you need (with a shower, no bathtub). We didn't hear any noise from other rooms nor from outside. Wifi is free of charge in the room (there are two iMac next to the reception).

In conclusion this hotel was a nice experience to support a pleasant visit of Singapore.

Room Tip: Rooms on Irrawaddy road are quiet and give on a Chinese temple.

Had to stay here because oasia was full. This hotel is quite hard to get taxi unless u walk out. The room is small. It has the worst fridge ever in hotel rooms. They supplied us with the mini fridges like those u plug in cars. Service was so so. Checking in and out is slow.

Stayed at this hotel during my three visits to Singapore (Dec '13 - Feb '14). Impressed with the quality of the room and the cleanliness. Eventhough the room and bathroom is rather small but it was well appointed.
Bed and pillow are comfortable, they even provide bolster.
Didn't try the breakfast so no comment on that.
Check in staff was helpful and the whole process is quick amd easy.
Location wise is quite convenient with NTUC fair price just around the corner. There are a lot of Tau sar piah shop around the hotel. Its not exactly near to mrt but you can easily hop on into a bus from the nearby bus stop.
The hotel also provided shuttle bus to Novena MRT and Orchard city center (check the schedule with the hotel, reservation is required).
Overall very satisfied with the hotel.

Stayed here 1 night prior to a cruise. Location was a little hard to find after getting off the Subway at Novena stop. (it is about 3 blocks away, though best to get a map, I paid for a cab ride of about $4 SGD.. ). Check in was quick. I was recognized as a Accor member.
Room was small (as expected for the price) and this was my first time at an Ibis hotel. There is not much space in the room, but luggage fit with room to walk around with out squeezing. No water bottles were offered (sign above faucet said tap water is drinkable). Room was clean. I did not like the all in 1 shampoo/body wash, though there was separate soap.
There is a grocery store less than a block away, along with a few places to eat.
I slept well, no noises and missed the breakfast (late breakfast started), so I ended up eating at a Toast place next to the grocery store.
Check out was quick.
