The bathroom is so pokey it reminds me of a portaloo you get at concerts. After you have been to the toilet you have to cross the room to wash your hands as they couldn't fit the sink in! The location is convenient but hardly budget with expensive WIFI and extra for breakfast.

15 (700m) minute walk to the international terminal and approx. half the distance is not under cover. Room is approx. 2.5m by 5m including bathroom. Bed was comfortable and room was basic but clean and sterile. No restaurant or other services and is only good for short overnight stays prior to catching a flight.

Teeny weeny bathroom, you wouldn't want to be a large person. Don't take anything into the bathroom with you either or it will end up... More

Stayed here after an unexpected re-route from Denpasar to Sydney. This hotel was picked as it was about 40% of the cost of other hotels at the airport. Was an easy walk from the airport, under 10 minutes and like others have said, take a trolley if you need to. The room was small, the bathroom even smaller but I... More

Room was tiny but clean. The location is near to the airport but had hard time finding its way especially it lack way-finding signage. There was no elevator, thus we have to walk up stairs with our huge luggages.

The Ibis budget is ideally located with easy walking access to the terminals at the Melbourne Airport even with luggage. The room is somewhat cosy but clean and reasonably comfortable. Our room which was locate at the front of the hotel was rather quiet for the location of the hotel. Don't expect any luxuries though. It is a very handy... More
