It is very close to "red light zone". Night clubs around. It is impossible to sleep because of traffic. Facilities in the room are terrible. There is no hair dryer, no tea/coffer bar. If you want some hot water, you need to go down to the dinning room and get it yourself. Very bad conditions!!!!!

While the rooms are basic, they are what you pay for. Ibis Budget provided friends and myself the cheapest accommodation around that was only a short walk to a nearby train station and food. In addition the staff were friendly and checking in and out was easy.

This hotel was situated near a night club, meaning it was very noisy. However the situation of the hotel was good as you were close to the subway station and some nice restaurants. The room was clean, and it also came with a complimentary breakfast, this was basic, but decent.

Room on William street impossible to sleep due to traffic (windows frames with one centimeter air). Bugs in the bathroom!!! Wifi signal only at reception and very expensive. The PC at 2dollars for 20 minutes and not working. After two nights room changed, bad and very small. Absolutely not to reccomend!!!

I thought it was horrible, I paid AUD 214 for three nights, I appreciate its budget but this was just terrible. Dirty walls and windows, dirty toilet, dust on the TV, broken fitments, graffiti on the walls, halls stank of cigarettes. The bed was OK, there is also a bunk for kids, the room looked like a prison cell. The... More
