This is perfect for the budget concious traveller/s. Rooms are quite basic but that's all you need on a holiday. Close to Flinders St Station, Rod Laver Arena is not too far of a walk away.Plenty of food places nearby.

Lets be fair, this IS a budget hotel and like all things, you get what you pay for but... I have a few issues. First let me just commend the staff, they were amazing, friendly, and when extra pillows were requested they jumped onto it! Location wise, this is fantastic, right in the centre of the city, close to everything... More

A friend and I have come to Melbourne for a long weekend of shopping, dining out, etc. Ibis Melbourne is great for somewhere fresh and clean to sleep. We are in a queen room which sleeps 3. The shower and sink has a curtain around it so you'd want to be friendly with your companion. Clean, extremely reasonable and friendly.... More

The Ibis is very basic, nothing fancy but what do you expect for $86 per night Good points, close to everything, very central, old, basic but clean. If you just want a bed for the night this would be suitable

Hi S, if you would like to discuss your stay please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Unfortunately we don't have parking. This is on the website and all over trip advisor, but it appears some only come here to write not to actually read reviews, here's hoping people read yours and find it helpful with regards the parking situation....

Stayed here during the Australian Open. Location is absolutely perfect - tram to Melbourne park about 2minutes away - past a coles to collect some food for the day. Hotel is very basic, but we were only in it to sleep, so was perfect. Will definately return.

For budget accomodation it was great. Small but clean and nice staff. When ur not spending anytime in your room and u need a bed and a bathroom this place is perfect. Right in the city with the price tag. Will stay again.
