My husband and I plus my elderly mother stayed here for one night in a family room. It is very much a budget hotel and up front named so. We chose to stay here based on price and location and knew it was going to be no frills, old story you get what you pay for. The location was fabulous.... More

Dear QSG, I really should get T-Shirts made up I think "I survived Ibis Budget", not sure my boss would approve, but might still be worth it for the laughs shared with our fantastic guests, I think a sense of humor helps when necessity not preference has you stuck with a Budget option. Far too often people feel 'forced' to... More

Very centrally located in Melbourne. Room is small, but neat & clean. Don't expect any facilities as it is a budget hotel. Sound from other adjoining rooms is an issue at night. Tram station just outside the hotel.

Thanks SK, so pleased we could assist with a room for you. Can't get much closer to public transport than on the front doorstep :) Please do let reception know in any hotel if you ever have noise issue during a hotel stay, staff will always do their best to isolate and eliminate the issue for you. Safe travels. Kind... More

Ibis in the CBD of Melbourne was exactly what my friend and I needed for a 3 night stay. We wanted somewhere central and cheap. The room was basic but it was just a sleeping point for us. It had a fridge and seperate bathroom and was very cosy. The room was very clean! We had a room in the... More

Stayed here for 1 night. We paid AUD 128 for a standard double room. Located in the heart of Melbourne city, you can find a lot of restaurants, cafes and shops around. Tram stop is just in front of the hotel. The room itself is clean, a bit small but comfortable, with air conditioning. Towels were provided. However, no kettle,... More

Great location, in between Flinders Station & Central Station. Stayed for four nights. The room was clean, bed comfortable. Unlimited coffee/tea supply at 1st floor. The bathroom size is OK, they should add space to hang the towel though. I think the management should add extra safety precaution since the hotel can be access freely.

Hi Z, thanks for taking the time to post a review. We're so happy the hotel worked for you. We would very much like to include a card reader in our lift and are working towards that with the lift company and hotel owner. I am hopeful we get to include it as a part of our up-coming refurbishment. Safe... More

Stayed for one night. The staff were ok. Location is good. The sheets and towels were clean. The decor is really grim. We had a family room. The double bed was fine but the bunk beds squeaked every time my daughter moved. Thankfully only one child with us. Ok for one night. Wouldn't stay again.

Dear JM, thanks for taking the time to post, we appreciate it greatly. I'm sorry it wasn't a happier experience for you, it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea, or something that works on every occasion. I'm glad you enjoyed the location & found the staff nice, we do love to help people. We are eagerly awaiting a refurbishment that... More
