Singapore: Ibis Hotel Bencoolen St. - Hotel Review

DATES STAYED: APRIL 2012 & 2013

I've stayed at Ibis Hotel twice; my first was in April 2012, and the recent one was this April 2013. I must say I am highly satisfied with this hotel though it is located quite far from the nearest MRT Station which is either Bugis Station (CC2) or Bras Basah Station (EW12).

To sum up my experience in the hotel's facilities and treatment, you may refer below for my pros and cons.

PROS:
  • Located along shopping stores and restaurants
  • Near Little India which is a tourist landmark
  • Friendly Staff and Good amenities
  • Rooms are clean and well-lit
  • Free Wireless Connection

CONS:
  • Nearest MRT Stations are a bit far
  • Rooms are quite small for two twin beds
  • Hotel Rates are relatively more expensive than others

Well, the easiest and most convenient mode of transportation from Changi Airport to Ibis Hotel is by taxi. Though be mindful that taxi rates in Singapore are expensive. In my case, a taxi ride from Ibis Hotel to Changi Airport Terminal 2 cost around SGD 24 (price depending on time traveled and traffic).

TRAVEL TIP: Ask the locals how to ride bus and what bus route to take from Changi Airport to Bencoolen Street. This will surely save you some bucks.

Room Rates at Ibis Hotel starts around USD 200. The one we actually booked before was around USD 205 which was good for 2 persons with 2 Twin Beds. Check out www.agoda.com for the latest pricing and discounts.

If I have future plans of going back to Singapore, surely Ibis Hotel is on my first priority. It's strategically located in the business district with numerous nearby shops, and the services are highly commendable!
