Ibis Novena is situated near the Novena Metro station, and ideal start to your day. The Hotel has all the Ibis perks, very skilled staff in courtesy and helpfulness and and a fabulous breakfast offer, not too miss. The rooms are super clean and comfortable, there is a general good atmosphere in and around the hotel. Let me congratulate the whole team, especially the Desk with Ryann, Esh, Ivy and Cecilia The best room service by Linda The helpful staff in the Restaurant with Janssen, Jolin, the outstanding Gordon. Thank you all, until next time!
The hotel is average in terms of its rooms. But the location and the food (especially breakfast buffet) makes it a decent stay. There is a mall diagonally opposite to the hotel with multiple eating options. There is a nice Buddhist temple close by.
Our travel agent had to move us to this accomodation but it worked out really well. The breakfast was great every morning and the food hall and shops across the road was very convenient. It is an easy walk to Novena train station and the large shopping centre. The Manager Daniel gave great travel advice on the first morning and all staff were lovely.
This hotel is good. It’s clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast is very good. We had an issue with our room which was resolved quickly and a new room was found for us. The location is ok because the MRT is exceptional, although the walk (~600m) gets a bit old in the heat after a few days. We stayed as part of our vacation club, however I would not choose this hotel if I had to pay the advertised rate
Location is ok for where I needed to be for a few days. It's very basic, so I would not stay longer. The is hardly any space and because of that, it is simply furnished... Almost spartan. TV was on the blink for some channels (bad reception?), towels came frayed sometimes, and there were streaks on the outside of the window (when did they last clean that?). One day, they missed cleaning the room and it was addressed when I pointed that out, so all good... But what system do they use, that this can actually miss cleaning a room?
Stayed 1 week here. A very nice experience. All is perfect. Cleaning lady was very helpful. She made our bed every day, although we're told cleaning was on alternate day. It's really nice touch, as we're busy the whole day, surprised by a nice and tidy bed at night. I'd like to compliment to Jansen, the staff in restaurant. Drop several hundred bills on the floor, he return them to me. Very professional. Definitely recommend this hotel
I booked this SHN hotel for my helper whom we had to isolate due to to Covid. We did not have the sleeping arrangements to accommodate her at home as being my elderly mother's caregiver, she slept with her. The helper's room was occupied by our second helper who was also in isolation due to Covid. Hence we had to find alternative arrangements urgently and we are so grateful to the Ibis Novena for taking our helper in. The staff were super helpful with making sure our helper got her meals delivered up to her room. Someone from reception called in the check on her everyday to see if she was alright. I could not ask for more professional and sincere service. Breakfast was varied and very generously proportioned! We did have to pay a slight premium on the room on some nights - somehow during the isolation period, every mid-price ranged hotel was fully booked. There was one night the room rate was $400 plus when it normally is around $279. But it was important that our helper was not uncomfortable and we couldn't move her anyway since she was in isolation. Thank you so much Ibis Novena for taking care of our helper, and for helping us out during a very challenging time. It's really much appreciated! Tip: The hotel is well located in the Balestier area. There are plenty of food places to eat and Zhong Shan Mall is across the road. This helped reduce our Grab Express delivery costs because we could easily find food within a short distance from the hotel.…
Sadly, this hotel has had a huge change, all downwards. The website promises all sorts of services that are no longer provided - a fact that would be illegal in most countries, perhaps even in Singapore. The major one for me is the shuttle bus to the MRT station. Advertised but no longer provided, and the management at the hotel are aware of this!!!! So, an 81 year old faces a 800 metre walk up a steep hill to the station. Impossible for me. I would never have booked this hotel if I had been aware. Other services have also vanished. What was a 3 star hotel offering 4 star service has become a two star dump with surly staff and a devil may care attitude. Rooms are still adequate, beds are comfortable, service is crap. Do not use this hotel unless you have a car or your business and interests are confined to Belestier. Overpriced second class budget??? hotel…
Nice buffet, nice atmosphere around the hotel. I went here with friends on vacation and stay here for 3 nights and have a great time here. The staff is friendly and helpful during our stay. We will come back after COVID-19 situation is better.
stayed for 1 night .. this hotel is located close to the MRT station of Novena .. just across the road there is a big shopping centre where you can get some thing to eat and do a little shopping. the rooms were small but decently equipped
