Very close to domestic airports. Use the shuttle bus as its so close taxi's get really cross about the short fare. Do NOT get it confused with a proper Ibis hotel - this is DEFINITELY NOT a proper Ibis. The receptionist was rude on arrival. A room with a bunk bed and a double bed on wheels - every time... More

I was totally and completely underwhelmed by the Budget Ibis, Mascot. This is an ex Forumle 51 (or whatever number) hotel. Their claim to fame is "comfort at a budget price". Well, I'm not sure either were totally correct. The "budget price" still stretched over the $100 mark for one night and the "comfort" was sadly missing. The mattress was... More

we've stayed here 4 times since 2008, always the best price, our flight usually gets in late and we have an early connecting flight out, so we don't require much out of the hotel, only takes 5 minutes to walk either way and is doable with wheeled luggage, but we've never had rain. very basic and tight rooms, but always...

I have stayed at a number of Ibis hotels over the years and most recently December 2013 . They have all shared the same minimalist layout and facilities which is more than adequate in a budget hotel. However the Ross Smith property , room417 is straight out dirty with badly marked walls, burn marks in the carpet and badly in... More

this hotel is ideal for flying out of Sydney domestic terminals and rooms are clean and quiet. Parking is good and fast food outlets nearby are sufficient for most peorles needs. Beds were comfortable .

As we live north of the City and had a 6am flight we chose to stay overnight close to the airport. Having 2 weeks prior had a less than pleasant stay at a Melbourne Ibis Budget hotel we were slightly apprehensive. What a pleasant surprise. Check in was quick. The room was pleasant and clean. It even had coat hangers!... More

Good location close to the airport. For the budget but clean and an easy 10 minute walk to the domestic terminal. Great for early starts. Only item to consider is everyone else is likely to be doing the same thing (i.e. catching early flights) so was a bit more noise than other hotels but overall not bad.
