Everything about this place was great! The location was excellent and the room was clean and relatively spacious. That's pretty much all I need in a place to stay so can't complain. On the better side of the Ibis Budgets that we stayed at during our trip (also stayed at one in Sydney).

Room was very small, beds were uncomfortable. Beds were not made on some days and bins were not cleaned out. Some receptionists were rude, elevators took too long during the morning. Apart from that, hotel was in a great location.

We recently stayed 5 nights in a family room. We were so impressed with the location and the price! Tram stop right outside and shopping on your doorstep. Yes, it's a budget hotel, but it was perfect for what we needed. We had a compact room with a separate bathroom and nice shower. Fresh towels were delivered daily and the... More

This is a place that is a budget hotel, so I guess we paid for what we got. I would rather pay another $10 per night and have cleaner carpet, the room painted and more attention to cleaning. On a positive note, the bed was comfortable, the sheets were clean and good pillows. There is also a communal fridge in... More

Vicki on the front desk is the most lovely woman, so helpful and kind and addressed us by name. The location here was excellent and surprisingly quiet. The beds weren't that great on the back but for the price, location and friendly smile it was excellent.

Very well located, very close to Federation Square and other main attractions. Room was clean and ok, a little bit worse than "Ibis standard" - the shower area was small. Breakfast could be improved. Check-in and check-out very quick. We took the bus shuttle from the airport and they left us in front of the hotel, very convenient.

Of all the accommodation I had stayed in 5 cities in Australia, this was the worst. The room was shabby, from the carpet to the toilet (which reeked of cigarette smoke) and "bathroom", which was basically a basin behind curtains and a shower. The room itself was a fair size, with a queen bed and double decker beds but there... More

I stayed in the Ibis Budget for 3 nights with my daughter in late November. We visited Melbourne as I wanted to attend Equitana and she wanted to shop. I found the hotel very very clean! Room was attended to daily and sheets were crisp and towels replaced each day were spotlessly clean. Bathroom and toilet also spotless. The room... More
