Grand final week end in Melbourne is difficult to get accommodation in the CBD and we ended up at the Ibis Budget out of necessity. Upon entry your senses are assaulted by the strong smell of garbage while waiting in the corridor for the lift. Upon reaching the cramped reception area where only one slightly frazzled girl was handling guests... More

A place just for sleep. Nothing exceptional. But the an excellent location. Close or everything. The main problem is the lift. The hotel only have 2 and too much people, specially when you have to do the check-out. A good point: the lockers, you'll pay a low fee for the lockers.

My wife and I stayed one night during July as it is in town and close to the railway station. The room was clean and ample in size but a bit tired. The toilet is separate from an outside shower. Air conditioning is via a heat pump which is slightly noisy. Our window just faces the building next door but... More

Superb central location. Some friendly staff, others less so and appear to be keen not to have to deal with anyone. Breakfast not up to standard, and thus hugely overpriced. Accommodation itself much as expected from the ibis brand.

As the name suggest the amenities are very basic, but the location is perfect. Its hardly 5 minutes from Flinders Street. Very Nice option if you have limited time in melbourne as many attractions are at walking distance. They charge some 6$ for the lockers on the 1st floor.

Close to the cbd and a few minutes walk to Flinders St Station.There is a communal fridge available on first floor and you can buy a buffet... More

I was booked into this hotel as part of a work trip. The entry way is a small hallway that is dirty and dank. Arriving at the lift to the first floor reception I was greeted with filthy, dirty metal lift doors - not a good start. The reception staff appear to all be young, foreign students of Asian origin.... More
