..both worth staying I was advised by Reception the room is non-smoking but as soon as the Aircon is on whole room filled up with the disgusting smell of cigarettes smokes..total disaster for my Xmas..felt like a rip off not only on my wallet but also on my health..to say the least..never stay in this Ibis!!! Especially if you're nonsmokers..
Not a good area. Takes long to go to Singapore attractions. Staff were inefficient. They repeatedly called us in the morning on checkout day asking us to check out as soon as possible. Overall, a musty room with a lot of disturbance day and night.
Me: Stayed here for two nights to see the U2 concert and overall this hotel did not disappoint. Cab drivers were not familiar with the hotel though (ibis budget or fragrance) and had to really slow down and find it via the address. Restaurants and convenience stores are really close and walking past the bright lights and the people at night was distracting but safe.
The room we got (deluxe twin or something) was big enough to fully open our luggage. The mattress was a bit on the firm side. The sheets seem clean, but the wife has something to say about that...
Wife: The sheets smell bad! And you can hear everything in the hallway because of the thin walls.
Me: Still a good deal though.
The hotel is good but not recommended for single ladies. Outside of the hotel quite complicated. First day check in, the room looks clean. But next day asked for extra blanket, the blanket they sent cover with hairs...
Midnight may have people drunk and make noise in the corridor. The bathroom is smelly sometimes.
Very good room for the price. The staff, especially Ben, Tes, and Hafiz, were outstanding! They all went out of their way to make sure we could get to transportation to any spot in Singapore. They also went out of their way to give us extra pillows for our son..
