Another Good Option for Singapore on a Budget

joshuaaE8243CE TripAdvisor review
The third of my 3 iBis Budget stays in Geylang. Feel free to compare the three reviews as you decide which of them you'd like to stay in. But for me, it's similar to the other 2 in that overall these are my go-to choice in Singapore for cheap(ish) rates, private rooms, and peace of mind. Things I particularly liked about this one: * WiFi stayed on the whole time on my device that had a problem at the other 2 Budgets. If I was on a work trip, that would likely be the tiebreaker for me to choose this one. * Once again I was able to check in a little early even though Accor Status doesn't count here thanks to the room being empty, which was nice. * Spacious, good lighting, good air conditioning. Things I didn't particularly like: * No safe at Crystal in my room. Pearl had a safe in the room to store valuables. Singapore is generally fine, but it's a nice peace of mind knowing everything is locked up and not bringing my passport and valuables around. * Shower water went all over the place like Emerald with the half glass partition thing. Pearl was the best for me of the three bathroom situations. * Crystal is in the most red-lighty location of the 3. It's still relatively subtle compared to other countries, but I'd probably choose Pearl or Emerald if I was walking around with children. Overall, I'll reiterate that when you look in the $60-$80 range around Singapore, these hotels are an amazing value. All three had positives, but also drawbacks. I'm pretty confident that I'll just keep choosing whichever is cheapest on my Singapore stays. You get the hotel vibe (if not hotel amenities), and the other patrons seemed to also be travelers on a budget which was nice when walking in and out. I've become used to taking the bus system to downtown and it's so easy. The metro is also a little bit of a walk if you're looking for that.

yanendraw Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review
The Hotel is very nice, room is very clean and changed the linen also, everyday do the house keeping at our request. The staff also very friendly and good communicator. Room size also good and nice cool pleasant view. Bed also very comfortable. The hotel location also very well and near to MRT and bus services. I booked this hotel because last time I had a terrible experience with K Hotel 12 at Singapore Geylang, it was the worst hotel I had stay on my life, This hotel I can recommend to all. This is a excellent hotel for your money

Hiawathakid Families - TripAdvisor review
I initially booked this hotel for only a few days, due to family corcumstances, I kept renewing my booking and ended up staying here for about 4 wks, each time swtiching my reservations between one room and two rooms . I got to know all the staff and each of one of them was not only very helpful and friendly, they all were very efficient in doing their job as well. Not suprisingly so, when I had the opportunity to meet with the manager, Mr. Nicholas Phyo, who had been very kind in accomodating our situation, I could easily see that Mr. Phyo leads by example and an excellent example he shows indeed. Mr. Phyo and staff graciously allowed us to keep the same room throughout our stay which was a complimentary upgrade from the type of room we booked. True to its budget hotel style, the room was not as big as in regular hotels (which is to be expected) but room cleanliness is way more important to me than room size. The housekeeping team is always hard at work and the results reflect that. The rooms were always sparkling clean, all the in-room toiletries and complimentary bottled water were replenished daily, the AC was always very satisfactorily cold. There were a couple of times I needed to call Front Desk for a bathroom light that was flickering and dead (two different incidents in two different rooms).. both were immediately taken care of and the issue fixed. The shower area is, as other reviewers have mentioned, considerably tiny, but again, for the rate we’re paying, it is acceptable. I also find the hotel location very convenient, 10-15 mins walking distance to Mountbatten MRT station and Old Airport hawker center (yummy and ridiculously affordable food & drinks), and 5 mins walk to bus stops. I learned quickly that the nearest bus stop has bus # 7 which will take us to Orchard Rd shopping area (basically the city center) without having to change bus. Catch a double decker bus and sit in the upper deck, that absolutely felt like we were in a very enjoyable city tour indeed. There’s also a 24/7 self-service laundromat about less than 10 mins walk from the hotel. At times, the hotel seems to be quite busy with people checking in, and yet the staff always handled everything efficiently. My first day arriving there, I arrived early morning, Rahul assisted me with check in and informed me that the room wouldn’t be ready until later. He helpfully infoed me where the closest 7-11 is, to get the local simcard and had my luggage stored. When I returned later in the day, he immediately handed me the room key and to my absolute pleasure, I found the AC in the room was already cranked up and the room being very nicely cooled. Much much appreciated that thoughtful gesture, Rahul! :) Ben, Siti, Neni were also always very polite and helpful.. my apology, I am forgetting the name of another female staff, but I will not forget her courteousness just like all the staff there. Bravo. For my future visit to Singapore, I would definitely pick to stay here again without a doubt. Such an absolute delight of people!

AzizurNayu Couples - TripAdvisor review
This hotel is quite a budget-friendly, clean and comfy hotel. It is a 2-star hotel but as it's a accor sub-brand, their service and quality were up to our expectation. Recommended for backpackers who don't really stay at hotel but need a quiet and comfy place to have a good sleep after exploring Singapore the whole day.
Dear Azizur, Thank you for your strong recommendation for ibis budget Crystal, and letting us know we have met your expectations during your stay with us. Please come back again soon! Best Regards, Thaddaeus Guest Experience Executive
