Hotel is very well sign posted from international arrivals area ... easy to follow even at 1 am ! Was surprised that reception was still open ... we didn't expect that so late at night ... a nice touch. Good value ... very comfy bed ... smallish room but don't need much more for an overnight/in transit type stay. Would... More

Within easy walking distance of all terminals and a pathway all the way you can push a trolley right to the front door. Very clean. Free cup of tea or coffee when you arrive late it's a nice though because there's nothing on the rooms. The same would have been nice in the morning but reception doesn't open until late.

I was concerned about finding our way at midnight from the terminal to the hotel but if you follow the path outside the terminal to the end of the building, there are signs along the way which made it easy. About a 10 minute flat walk, paved all the way. There was a helpful man on reception as the check... More

Getting a bit pricey after you pay $124 for a room plus overseas credit card and exchange rate, for budget accommodation. This was a Sunday night. Got 2 single beds not a double. Staff great, room clean but noise from other guests came through

We arrived at Melbourne airport very late at night - after 11pm. The hotel was a short walk from the airport & reception was still manned - however you do have the ability to check in 24/7 without anyone being present at reception - which is great. Hotel is right behind a servo & a 24/7 maccas which was quite... More

Late evening arrival of international flight required overnight stay for early morning domestic connection - wouldn't stay here otherwise. Overpriced for quality of hotel, but convenient. Ibis refurbishment an improvement over the previous Formule 1 hotel.

For a $150 unrestricted, 400m from airport, it's hard to beat. Bit noisy with split system air con-and no lift, and a bit weird with your wash basin, in your bedroom, but ok. Surprisingly, no aircraft noise. Would bother with the super budget $9 breakfast-eat on the plane!

Conveniently located & better priced hotel than 2 other hotels at Melbourne Airport. Staff very helpful - returning my watch by post after I left it in my room. Probably some more pedestrian signs are needed to assist people on foot from the airport to the hotel.

Service is poor, arrived late at night and had to wait as man at counter talking to his mate. Room tiny and not so clean in the bathroom. Very noisy, you can hear everything, people coming up the stairs, the room above, doors . Value for money not so good
