Very very noisy room as I had the first room on the block and heard people outside my room most of the night and the smell of smoke coming... More

IBFawkner, General Manager at Ibis Budget Melbourne Fawkner, responded to this review

Dear VikasAKL, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us. Late departure is charged at $20 per hour and I guess that is what the staff member was trying to say. I apologise if the staff members response came across as rude or abrupt. I will be sure to raise your feedback with all of our staff.... More

The room is very small. The website is very deceiving. The en suite is that small that you couldn't even swing a cat. Rooms are not clean. I found a pubic hair stuck to the door in the bathroom, the air conditioner filter was black from dust, the bed side tables were not cleaned (cup rings and dust) and there... More

I needed a cheap hotel for the weekend. I was attending an event in the northern suburbs but didn't want to spend a fortune. The rooms are cheap but you get what you pay for. The ensuite is the smallest I have ever been in and has a toilet and shower. The sink/mirror is in the same room as the... More

Work booked this so i was glad i didn't pay $89 for this cell. Staff were reasonably friendly and room was clean but very small with only one quilt to keep you warm on a cold evening. I had to have the old and very noisy reverse cycled air con on all night. Communal kitchen consisted of a large cupboard... More

When I booked I thought that it wasn't too far from city. However, if you plan to use public transport it won't be a good idea to stay there. You have to walk nearly 1 kilometre to arrive to the train station and wait for the train that has 30 min frequency. If you have car could work for you.

This is very basic and simple Ibis style hotel. It was not quite as clean as we have used to but the double room was bigger than usually. We were little afraid that the location just by the highways and train tracks could have been noisy but the noises didn´t bother us even though the window (room 225) didn´t close... More

Paid $90 and it was like staying in an ol d caravan. Sheets were dirty and room is very tiny. No Shampo provided. No fridge or cup. This is should be $20 a night. Definitely not worth the money....... Look for somewhere else unless you are after a quickie ;)
