We stayed here for 3 nights. Bed sheets were not clean. Bedding are not changed with clean sheets on some day. The lounge area wasnt really clean, the garbage bin was full. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The hotel is at a convenient location. There are some shoppping malls near by with walking distance. It is near Flinter station... More

Hi Charlie, Thank you for your kind words regarding the staff. With the ibis Budgets, the bunk beds are not made up, simply linen and blankets provided for these. Linen is not changed daily. Only after the third night is a full service completed on the rooms, prior to this during your stay, towels are changed daily and rubbish taken... More

Hubby, daughter and I recently stayed here. Nothing flash but clean and tidy. Nice television on the room though no kettle or cups. One can live without these for a couple of days. Was very Central and easy to find. The lifts seemed to be slow at busy times but both were working which was great! Breakfast was available but... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with a friend for only $420 - so affordable! The room was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Rubbish emptied and fresh towels delivered daily. The $9 buffet breakfast was an added convenience. The hotel is in a great central location. If you're going to Melbourne for shopping, a concert, business, etc and need... More

Hi Mel, we're so happy the location worked for you on this trip and delighted that you will consider us again, especially given the stuck lift scenario! We are so very sorry you experienced this during your stay with us. It's a safety protocol the lift has if it encounters any weight imbalance/shift, overloads or blockage in the roller tracks/door...

The best selling point this hotel has to offer is its convenient location for a fraction of the price that other hotels charge. Bourke Street Mall is just a 2 minute walk and there are plenty of tram stops around which take you all over the city. However, this comes at a compromise. The bathroom comes with no door, just...

Pros: Wonderful location. Very close to tourist attractions, shopping centres, trams and Flinders station. Room cleaning service everyday. Cons: unmade bed when I first entered the room. No hooks to hang jackets. Noisy heater. Not warm enough blanket.
