This is our second stay at Ibis Novena, with the first stay about a year ago. It is located in a pleasant neighbourhood, about 10 minutes walk from the Novena MRT station. The hotel runs a scheduled free shuttle to the station but it is advisable that you pre-book as the driver may not take the shuttle out if there is no booking.
Two years ago we stayed at Ibis on Bencoolen which was also quite good. Ibis Bencoolen is more expensive than Ibis Novena, possibly because of the former’s proximity to the Bugis area. But Ibis Novena is not that far from Bugis or Orchard either, it is only a few stops away by MRT.
The room is comfortable and clean. Although a bit small, there is good use of space. I feel relaxed in the simple, no-fuss design of the room. I like this better than the way rooms are done at the new Ibis Styles hotel, which I stayed at in Kuala Lumpur in another trip in February 2013.
We booked Ibis Novena at the Super Sale rate of 50% off the normal rate and I am certainly happy with my stay at Ibis Novena again.More
