We were lead to believe that there was parking available - turned out it was a 10 minute walk away . On entering the "shoebox" of a room we were met with the stench of BO . There was Nowhere to put your bag or hang anything up . No fridge, jug or even a glass to have a drink... More

Stayed there and found it very average but that's what it is. Hotel management is excellent and very helpful. Morning breakfast is surely a delight for $9 as much high quality cereals, bread tea coffee and other things. A big no if you can afford better and you are with kids as the rooms are quite small. Kids get bored... More

I've been travelling back and forth between Melbourne and Sydney and paying for accomodation out of pocket. Ibis Budget is just that, its very budget and you get what you pay for which is good value, IF, you book well in advance. The standard walk up rate is between $99 on weekdays and $139 on weekends or busy periods. The... More

Good location, close to the train station. Room needed a better cleaning job. They gave me another room and similar conditions. Ended up changing hotels due to cleanliness. Good communication though from manager and Ibis. Would suggest to avoid this hotel until they get better cleaners and proper maintenance done to the property.

"Budget" as in over priced with limited facilities. You pay for the location but not much more- breakfast is expensive for toast and cereal, absolute no effort in helping me to my room with my ridiculous amount of bags and the wifi is $5 for 30mins. Sorry but no thank you

Though the rooms are small, it is still acceptable and clean, the hotels provide the amenities such as towels and soap only. Please be reminded that if you are traveling with a budget, then this is a good place to start. It's located near kings cross train station. The service here is top of the line, though there are people... More

I love the location right beside bus and train with parking available if needed. The management team here are stars and always make me feel welcome. Easy walk to the city, meals and a beer. Good size rooms at a price that can't be beaten in Sydney

I was concerned after reading other reviews, but our room, though small, was clean. Be warned - there is no storage. An opening window would be good. We had a family room. The queen sized bed was very comfortable,and we had a grwat view over the harbour. The only downside was that there is nowhere to go so you either... More
