Alright, maybe my review gets a slightly better rating than it should, but I was able to snatch the Ibis for just 108S$ - around 40% off the regular rate - so I was rather happy with everything. The property is brand new. It's quite a walk from the MRT, especially with luggage. Better take the bus there (check on gothere.sg how to take the bus) which just drives at the main road.
So, if you get there with Taxi/Bus, it's actually quite well located. Plenty of bus lines going to all major places downtown, so if you're good on taking public transport, it will save you quite some money.
The room is clean, just Ibis standard, the bathroom, everything works as expected. Good TV, good amount of channels. Really can't complain about anything regarding the rooms. New, clean, good wooden ground.
Checkin and Checkout worked fine as well, pre-pay rate was in the system, my reservation found, checkout very quickly.
At night, there are a few shops around the hotel (7-11) - so you can get anything you want 24hrs, and Newton Hawker center which is open like till 4am is also not too far away (short taxi hop or 20min walk or so.. )
All in all, the hotel does provide whats advertised, not more, not less. Go for it, if you can secure a good deal on the rate and only want basic, clean services.
