I stayed in the Ibis hotel recently with my family for a period of 7 days, quite a long stay for a budget hotel which is really only suitable for a one night stop over. From the moment we entered the hotel we were shocked by the hotels standards, we booked the hotel as it offered an extremely competitive price... More

Tough question. Despite have been caught up in the same situation more than once, I do not think it is acceptable for any hotel, budget or not, to have such poor cleaning standards. And that Ibis is a part of Accor Hotels, leaves me slightly puzzled. Their SOP has clearly opted out of a hygiene audit for their less loved... More

I have stayed there twice now. Overall not the best hotel, but you are getting what you pay for. I have only stayed in the quadruple room with mates. The location is good, about 5 min walk towards kings cross. If you were planning to head into the city and darlinghurst area, it's about a 30min walk or 5-10min cab... More

Stayed for 2 nights around Christmas. The room was basic but clean. Sydney is an expensive city so this was a good option to stay at a good location. There was an elevator which was good and an AC as well. Pretty good value, basic hotel.

We had to suffer this hotel for three nights over the new year's eve period. As we paid an exorbitant amount of money, we were expecting a reasonable accommodation in terms of cleanliness, minimum comfort and daily room service. What a surprise to find exactly the opposite. With exception of the reception crew, who were friendly, this has been the... More

It's a good option if you just want to sleep, but not in a hostel. In fact, in a hostel you have the commodity to have free wifi, what does not happen in the Ibis Budget. Besides, the hall was stinking and the room had not a good smell as well. I would think twice before booking a room again... More

It was a very depressing hotel to stay in. The room was dirty and the windows don't open. The floor was never swept or vacuumed during our 6 day stay. The worst thing was the bathroom where the shower floor tiles were slimy and looked like they had not been cleaned for a long time. When showering, water goes all... More
