We booked one night here after a night flight into Sydney. Market view is very near a shopping mall which has a small food court and it is only a 15 minute walk to the very nice beach.We stayed there on a Friday night and were pleased to find a farmer's market in action on Saturday morning. The staff were... More

Did not realise this was uni accommodation when I booked it, very dorm like. Carpets were dirty, rooms were small. Grounds around the entrance are dirty. Convenient location and friendly staff. Underground car park is handy although no guarantee of a space and you have to park across the road in an open car park, so we left the car... More

The reviews of this site in part, gave not a very glowing report on what a stay at this place would be like. If you have stayed at an Ibis, its the same effectively, except run by students for the students (most of the year)! Extremely clean, generally very quiet and had no problem sleeping that night. Other than not... More

We are currently staying here for a few nights. First impression was a little disappointing. I requested a cot when I booked and it was confirmed, yet when we got to our room there was a Queen and Single bed- no cot. The staff are friendly and were very quick to change our room and send up a cot which... More

No negatives about this place. Central location and easy on the pocket. Close to shopping and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The rooms are a little small but who's spending days or weeks in central Wollongong anyway!? Would stay here agin no worries.

This hotel is really a university residence during the holidays. That said, it was small, tidy, and the security was good. The room had a hair dryer, a kettle and a tv. It was missing a hand towel and washcloths, which we obviously asked for. BUT, there was an odour in the room which was between the smell of a... More

Stayed overnight at the Marketview (previously IBIS) is open only between November and February. It's in a fairly quiet location close to the main shopping centre. Lovely clean rooms, well carpeted, a little on the small side, but very compact, good desk area, comfortable bed a great little bathroom. Good continental breakfast in the very nice restaurant area on the... More

Stayed for two nights in second week of December. Room was clean, bed comfy, aircon a little noisy. Handy to have access to laundry facilities. Good to wash off togs & running gear. My only complaints are - no wifi (though they are working on it) and it was a challenge to find. Tried to call for directions but couldn't... More

Ours was just an overnight stay as were attending a concert in Wollongong and the Marketview worked well in this respect - central location, an easy walk from the entertainment centre, with free under cover car parking. Great staff, comfortable bed and good bathroom. But our room on the first floor had quite a bit of traffic noise and as... More

This modern hotel (which I believe has some link to the IBIS chain), is managed by the University of Wollongong, and is available to the public during December and January. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the railway station, 5 mins to the free city loop bus and 10 mins - 15 mins to the beach. The rooms... More
