ibis Singapore Novena, the latest addition to international hotel group Accor, welcomed its first guest at 11.00 am at its new hotel near Novena MRT station Sunday. This is the second ibis hotel in Singapore, targetting corporate and individual bookings for both mid and long-term stays.
“The opening of the second ibis hotel in Singapore marks another important milestone for the ibis brand in this part of the world. It demonstrates our commitment to further strengthen our position as a leading player in the economy hotel sector in Singapore and throughout South East Asia,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and chief operating officer, Accor Asia Pacific.
“The Singapore Tourism Board expects 12 to 13 million visitors to arrive in Singapore in 20111 resulting in a strong demand for centrally located, quality yet affordable accommodations. ibis Singapore Novena is ideally positioned to meet this demand and as evidenced through our current bookings; we expect the hotel to become a favourite among visitors from neighbouring countries such as Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia, as well as longer haul markets,” said Ms. Shamila Rolfe, General Manager, ibis Singapore Novena.
ibis Singapore Novena offers 241 modern rooms equipped with a 32-inch LCD TV, complimentary broadband and Wi-Fi Internet access, in-room safe and a large bay window.
