The overall quality of the room was poor. I know it was cheap but never again. In the future I will pay the extra $30-40 a night that has a room with some facility of hanging your close and ironing facilities in the room.Servicing the room the sheets where just pulled back and no soap was left.

It your after somewhere to just lay your head each night, this is a great option. Obviously ex office building now turned into accommodation. Cleaned prior to arrival and towels provided daily.

We stayed in Ibis budget for a 1 night in May 2014. Small and served its purpose... for bed and shower. Space is small so if you are not used to tiny rooms , this' not it. The reception was most helpful, the dinnng area was good too, we were able to make a simple breakfast ourselves. Just for the... More
