OK this is a budget hotel but really. My husband stayed here for one night on a recent trip to Melbourne. Tiny bed, tiny TV, no tea or coffee making facilities, tiny bathroom, erratic coffee machine that seemed to dispense anything apart from what you had selected. Usually stays at the Holiday Inn at the airport and will be going...

Hotel ok if you want climb a ladder and make your own bed, I had booked for 3 people so the room should have had 3 beds made up, for 100 per night, it is not good enough, need to lift game if they want to survive there

Australian accommodation is still behind overseas when it comes to offering any extras. A simple breakfast and a working coffee machine would make the stay at Ibis an excellent stay for the money. For not much more money better quality accommodation can be found. Lift your game an offer better value for money.

Check in- check out! Renovations galore and dust every where, no reception, no food services, no good! This is the old formula one hotel - cell dice rooms with a portable moulded shower/ toilet I felt like I was back in budget accommodation Hong Kong with a smaller room. After struggling up the stairs where the dirty laundry was stored...

Having stayed in a number of Ibis budget hotels I thought that it would be a perfect option for an overnight stay following a late night arrival into Melbourne. I was so very, very wrong. It all seemed fine to begin with - we arrived bedraggled and exhausted after a long-haul flight from hell and were pleased to find a...

I was really disappointed in this room, I feel that I overpaid for this room as budget as it was, there was no shampoo, conditioner or soap and no bench space for me to work with. Will never stay here again I'm sorry.
