Perfectly fine hotel, with especially helpful staff.
There is however one big flaw: it is a long way from Malpensa Airport unless you're driving or in a taxi.
Taxi from the rank at the airport charged me €30 to get to the hotel. They do run a shuttle, but I had no info with my booking as to how to book this or where in the airport it went from.
Managed to get the shuttle on the way back and it was overbooked: I got on, but a few weren't so lucky.
So would I recommend the Ibis Malpensa? Yes, if you're hiring a car: it was clean, comfortable, the staff were great, and breakfast was fine. For a one night trip like mine was though, the price advantage was lost due to fares and more convenient options do exist.
