Great little hotel, small but comfortable rooms and for the price delivers many restaurants near by. Perfect for a few hours between flights. Air conditioning worked well and the bathroom was clean and did the job

I stayed here as a stop-gap arrangement for 2 days. The stay was just average. Nothing great about the hotel. the rooms were clean and manageable but nothing which could evoke a sense of happiness when you enter your room. The room was small in size too. There was no assistance provided to take my luggage to the room thus I had to use a trolley for the luggage. The area in which this hotel is located is called Geylang which is/was the redlight district of Singapore though I didn't find any anti-family environment there. Unsure if it comes back to its original glory in the future as I went just a month after Singapore opened borders.

Dear Samrathukral, Thank you for staying with us and appreciating our high standards of housekeeping services. Budget hotel rooms in Singapore tend to be proportionately compact to our city's tiny size. Our rooms are offered at competitive rates for our guests' benefit. We apologise that bell boys are not available in budget hotels. Best Regards, Thaddaeus Guest Experience Executive

When they say budget they really mean budget. We stayed in a double room which basically consisted of the beds and the bathroom, the room is really small. The room was not clean especially the bathroom which had an empty drinks bottle left over from previous customers which is further evidence that the room wasn’t cleaned properly. We also found a cockroach in the room. The hotel is in an ok location, about 20 minute walk from the train station. The staff did the bare minimum, weren’t very friendly.

This hotel does not live up to expectation of service standard accorded to members of Accor membership. Front office functioned like any other budget hotel. Requested for late check out and was declined. This is the first time i stayed in an Accor hotel and denied late check out. So obviously i am dissappointed.

Deat WTEO888, Thank you for sharing your feedback with the Hotel Team. Similar to many of the international hotels, our hotel check out time is 1200hrs. However, we provide complimentary late check out till 1300hrs, which is subject to the hotel's availability. In view of heavy guest arrival on the day of your departure, it is regrettable we were being unable accommodate to your request. We hope to be able to provide you with a better stay experience on your next stay with us. Regards, Jack Chee Senior Customer Relations Manager

We stayed 4 nights. We got free room promotion from double room to family room, which was so nice, because we are travelling with a 3 year old. Room was small but clean and fine otherwise. Once cleaning lady left our door open for the whole day by mistake. There were lots of ants and that was a small problem but nothing too serious. Location of the hotel is not very good, but there is 2 MRT stations within walking distance 1,5km to either one. I think price is good for Singapore standards. Restaurants and markets within 100m.

Dear Jesse, Thank you for kind review for ibis budget - Pearl, and highlighting the complimentary room upgrade offered by my wonderful colleague. I'm sorry to hear about your experience. We highly value the safety and security of our esteemed guests and I have submitted your feedback to the manager and Housekeeping Supervisor for their review and follow-up. Singapore has progressed significantly since a few decades ago, and our location is no longer a cause for concern. In fact, many guests have thoroughly enjoyed staying with us as our hotel in Geylang is well located - in the midst of many dining options, and accessible by Bus, Foot or MRT. We are delighted that you have found great value during your stay with us and we look forward to serving you again. Best Regards, Thaddaeus Guest Experience Executive

Located in an area that looks a little more run down than the rest of Singapore, but felt safe and although the hotel is budget style it had all the necessities. The room was clean except for a LOT of hair on the bed which was quite gross. Also to make the hot water work you have to turn on the switch by the light switch. We took a while to figure this out as no one at reception mentioned.

Dear Slesa130, With a rich history steeped in multicultural migration, the Geylang District, where the hotel is situated, is a melting pot of ethnicities and religions. Unlike the rest of the island, it remains largely untouched by urban redevelopment. For guests who are looking for a slice of old-school authentic Singapore charm, they will likely find it here. Whilst I glad that you had found the room clean, I am sorry to hear of the housekeeping lapses concerning the bed. The Housekeeping Team will strive to make improvements on this aspect. The Front Desk Team shall also make an effort to advise the guests on the hot water shower switch during their check in registration at the property. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to remain your hotel of choice in this area, and to give you a better stay on a future visit. Regards, Jack Chee Senior Customer Relations Manager

Dear Soebagij, I am glad you had been well taken care during your stay at the hotel and the nearby amenities and transportation network had served you well. The 24hrs Sheng Siong Supermarket is just a 150m walk from the hotel, whereby hotel guests can conveniently purchase their groceries and necessities there. Thank you for staying with us and I hope to have the pleasure of inviting you through our doors again. Regards, Jack Chee Senior Customer Relations Manager

Travellers come to this hotel given IBIS name and while basic facilities are in place for 1/2 days stay, however room is too small with small bathroom. There is no food/ dining facility. Key challenge for this hotel is it’s poor location, near RED light area which makes it unsuitable for families.

After spending one night in another hotel, I transferred to Ibis. I went here at around 10am and they allowed me to have an early check in without additional charge. The staff in the reception was very very courteous. But they also did not offer to help with my three bags, something I usually experience in other hotels. My room was very very clean and the wifi is is strong. Even though I set the thermostat to 29 degrees centigrade, the air conditioning felt really cool. I had to turn it off in the middle of the night. The place is quieter and I was able to rest in the evening. Hot water was working but the same with Hotel 81, they dont have a bidet. Checking out is also fast in this hotel

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing ibis budget - Pearl as your preferred hotel here in Singapore, and appreciating the complimentary early check-in offered by my wonderful colleague, as well as your compliments with our high standards of housekeeping services, strong air-conditioning facility, and quiet ambience. Unfortunately, as our hotel is in the economy-tier, we do not offer bell hop services, which translates directly into savings for our guests. We seek your understanding in the matter. We also eagerly look forward to your return to our hotel the next time you visit Singapore! Best Regards, Thaddaeus Guest Experience Executive
