Blanca S. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We were welcomed very nicely, all of the hotel staff was very friendly and explains every details of our room. We check in quite early, we thought we only can check in at 2pm but we already got our room keys since 12pm. Our room quite nice, every thing was cleaned properly and we got our own hot water kettle and some amenities like coffee, tea, toothbrush and soap/shampoo. The bathroom is small but it’s enough. But sometimes the smell of other bathroom got into our bathroom through exhaust. Over all everything was great

Dear Blanca, Thank you for leaving a five star review and compliments for our lovely hospitality team. We are pretty sure all our hotel staff enjoyed catering to your needs as much as you enjoyed your stay and we are glad that you had enjoyed our complimentary early check-in. We are also pleased to hear that you had enjoyed our clean rooms with complete amenities and our close proximity to public transport and eateries.

lyndy23 Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

Very good budget hotel in quiet local area. Good bus service to Kallang MRT on bus 21 or 26 as advised by an excellent staff member, Benjamin. He was first rate and most helpful to me. Turn left out of hotel, walk 100m to main road. Excellent food on right corner. Bus to Kallang MRT on right. Three stops. Recommended Mountbatten MRT was poor advice. Too far to walk at night due to poor lighting. No taxis or buses at Mountbatten MRT. Grab cost $S11.00 to travel 1.5 km. Rooms at Ibis were very comfy. Beds good and bathroom modern and well drained. Overall, for under $S100 the Ibis offered good value for very expensive Singapore.

Dear lyndy, Thank you for letting us know we have met your expectations as a budget-conscious urban explorer! We are thrilled that we are able to meet to your stay expectations with our comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and the service from our helpful staff. We pride ourselves on delivering service from the heart and we have shared your kind recognition with our staff Benjamin. We are confident that our room rates will stay highly competitive, and hope you will choose to stay with us again soon. Warm Regards, Roland Guest Experience Executive

joseq94 Couples - TripAdvisor review

I would give this place 3.5 not a bad place at all honestly I would go again but Very nice rooms and great staff , quite spacious. But I found a roach and that was quite unpleasant and also the location is in a red light districting area at night but you can also find great Singapore street food at a affordable price. Honestly book this place if u don’t mind roaches because I only saw you and just take taxis and it will be a great experience

Dear ARCHIE, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are glad to hear that you had enjoyed our comfortable rooms and the warm service from our staff. Our hotel maintains a regular and stringent routine of pest management and hence we are surprised to learn of your comments. Nonetheless, we will step up inspections to mitigate such experiences. It is our hope to welcome you back in the near future. Warm Regards, Roland Guest Experience Executive

Clean, comfy and affordable - recommended for short stays.

POSITIVES: The Ibis Budget Crystal is a pleasant hotel with small, yet comfortable rooms. Don't let the fact that it's located in the "Red Light" district of Geylang put you off, as you barely notice this. Yes, there are brothels, but these places are clean & unassuming as in Singapore it is not allowed to solicit your patronage. Rest assured: the area is safe, with modern well-lighted streets. The hotel is easily accessed by both local buses as well as the MRT. We took a couple of buses from Changi airport and had no issue at all paying with our credit cards (don't forget to tap ON & then tap OFF). Just keep in mind that one individual credit card is needed for EACH passenger (NB: you cannot pay for more than 1 person with the same card). It's very simple to use the local buses to travel around Singapore using Google Maps: you get clear directions of what buses to take and where to get off. You'll just need to search Google Maps while you're connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot before you get on the buses, as there's no free WiFi on them. We had no issues at all. The hotel is within walking distance to many vibrant eateries and shops. The staff at the reception were super nice and helpful. There was a strong smell of smoke in our non-smoking room, and they quickly organized an ionizer to purify the air. This worked! (Though don't leave the ionizer running all night as the dryer air will end up making your throat feel "scratchy" - especially if you have asthma like my husband!) We liked that the hotel is modern, clean and well kept. You can tell the staff takes pride in this! There are 2 lifts available, so we never had long to wait. The rooms are small, as expected in Singapore. But there is sufficient space to stow-away your luggage under the bed. There is also a small space with a few hangers provided to hang clothes. Bathroom is small, but the shower is separated from the toilet by a glass screen: so the floor doesn't completely flood! This was a big PLUS. Some rooms have a fridge, but only the more expensive ones. No bottled water provided as tap water in Singapore is drinkable - so be environmentally conscious and just fill up your reusable bottles at the sink ;-) NEGATIVES: Although the beds were sufficiently comfortable, with crisp-clean cotton bedding, the mattresses and pillows are covered in a plastic waterproof mattress/pillow protectors. This unbreathable fabric made the beds a bit uncomfortable as it felt hot to sleep on. Thankfully the air conditioning in the room worked great. We understand this plastic sheeting helps keep the bedding free from nasty bedbugs, but it wasn't the most comfortable thing to lie on - it almost felt like you were sleeping on someone's couch. This was fine for one night, and you can probably get used to it if you stay longer of course... Only one pillow was provided per bed, as well as only one towel per person in the bathroom. As expected, the windows cannot be opened - so no surprise here. The sound-proofing between the rooms, and between the rooms and the corridor outside, is insufficient: you will end up hearing your neighbors as well as the other guests walking through the corridors - this is inevitable. However we found everyone was sufficiently quiet throughout the night, so we slept soundly. Bring ear-plugs if you're a light sleeper! If you like watching TV before bed, be advised that there aren't many channels in English and there's also poor reception. We haven't tried connecting our hard drive to their TV so I can't comment on that - we were only there for 1 night! Most rooms don't have a fridge, but their "Deluxe" rooms do. Unlike the Ibis Budget PEARL, there are no SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES available in the rooms here at the Ibis Budget Crystal.
