Great view of harbour bridge etc from out 5th floor room good clean room with ensuite which was adequate for our needs - we wanted to be out & about in Sydney so didn't need all the extras - air conditioning was a great bonus as the temperatures soared. Lovely friendly, helpful staff

Last minute low cost accommodation was required for a work event in the city. Budget, low cost, however you phrase this its still the same. This is budget accommodation perhaps a few steps up from hostel accommodation, so I had no expectation whatsoever, have worked in hostels in a past life. I was pleasantly surprised though, the beds were made... More

Friendly staff but the rooms and the lifts needs a good clean up and carpets needs to be changed. I was actually worried to be barefoot as the carpet looked disgusting! When we first went into the room, it had a terrible awful smell. Great location but not worth the money! Sorry guys. 👎👎👎

When it comes to location, the hotel is located near the "red district" where there are many clubs nearby but it is still safe to roam around at night. It is also a minute away from the Kings Cross Station, restaurants and Coles, a grocery store which offers different discounts like 50% off on selected items or 2 for 5dollars... More

We stayed in the King's Cross Ibis Budget Sydney East for two nights. It was a great location, far enough away from the red-light activity, but close enough to still experience the vibe of the area. We stayed in a double room - it is better than staying at a backpackers, but still a budget option. The room was really... More
