Close to all the amenities, transport, & featured attractions. Able to use the Shuttle tram service, within easy walking distance to the airport shuttle service. Room was clean & tidy, bed very comfortable.

This hotel was clean and tidy. The room was pretty cramped with toilet and bathroom forming part of the main room. Shower was step in the bath type. After dark it soon became apparent that the building next door was a nightclub as the boom boom music came at us through the walls. I would not stay here again but that is a choice of mine in relation to the enjoyment of peace an quiet. The one Staffmember I saw was friendly although I found a lot of difficulty locating henim when I wanted a beer and had to go for the leave the hotel option.

Dear dancing_2005

Many thanks for your time in providing valuable feedback on your recent stay at the hotel.

Apologies that the staff member was not available at the time you required to assist with your
beverage requirements. We have shared and discussed this with the team to take steps that this does not occur in the future.

There are a range of room types and the standard double and twin rooms are compact. All rooms have a shower over the bath and discussion are planned for 2013 too see what steps the hotel is able to undertake to have the baths removed and replaced with a shower only.

The hotel is located adjacent to the popular weekend nightclub area of King Street. At times this can be challenging and we continue to work closely with authorities as required.

Many thanks and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

The hotel is located at the city centre of Melbourne. Near the free of charge oldtimer city circle tram and circle line bus. Breakfast is simple but OK. Staff is friendly and helpful. It is easy to walk to Victoria Market and the Yarra River to take a lovely boat trip at sunset.

Dear Hans Bonsen

Many thanks for your valuable feedback on your stay in November.
The hotels location is central within the city to get around and see the many sights.
Public transport including the free City Circle Tram is a very affordable option
for transport operating 7 days per week.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We stayed here for 7 nights on October 2012 and were welcomed by the very friendly reception staff. Check-in was quick and our room was very comfortable, although we did look out onto a building site! The room was clean and tidy with a good-sized bathroom.
The hotel is in a great location - close to Southern Cross Station, and to the City Circular tram.
We didn't have breakfast here, so cannot comment on that, but there are plenty of cafes nearby.
The PC in the lobby gives access to the internet for 15 minutes - less time than the Ibis in Sydney, where you are allowed up to an hour each day.
Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Dear Scorpio001

We are pleased to hear that your stay in October was most enjoyable.

I dont know why you could get 1 hour per day in Sydney on the free internet. The concept
of 15 minutes free is to give all guests the opportunity to utilise the service to undertake the
quick essentials, airline check in and the like. You were lucky in Sydney.

We trust you have had a wonderful festive season and Happy New Year.

many thanks

We stayed at the Ibis on the 16/1/2013, our checking was smooth and managed a fast transition to our room by Michael. The rooms were clean and well appointed, although on the small side, but when you only really need the bed - this is sufficient! Glasses, cup, kettle etc were supplied in the room, although we did not need them. It is located close to Southern Cross station, short walk to the Casino, Aquarium etc it is the perfect spot to stay. Included in our package was the Full Buffet breakfast which was filling and delicious. I will definitely stay here again, and would be happy to recommend others.

You just cannot get any better if you want comfort at a budget price in a central location. Get the same service, cleanliness and comfort that you'd expect from the Accor chain (Mecure, Novotel), but at a fraction of the price.

Location: Right near Southern Cross station and a short stroll to the city hub. Perfect if you don't have a car. I expect parking would not be free in this area. This is not the Paris end of Melbourne city (they are trying to call it the New York end but I don't think it's catching on), so don't expect it to be as lovely as uptown.

Rooms: Quiet, perfect temperature, view of the office next door. Mine was very spacious with a king sized bed. Clean bathrooms with no unsightly mold. They replaced the milk and coffee on a daily basis, tidied the room and made the bed. Great to come home to after a full day out.

Internet: There is a computer in the lobby where you can check your emails etc free for 15 minutes. I used this option as I came from overseas and didn't get a 3G plan in Australia for my iphone. It was good enough for me, but I do wish there was free internet in the rooms. I guess that's why it's budget.

Breakfast: I didn't have breakfast in the hotel, especially when there are so many exciting coffee shop options down the lane ways of Melbourne. It did kinda have a kitchen smell when you walk past the lobby though. Not a concern for me though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face Little Bourke Street. It's nice and quiet on the other side of...

Dear Alfieandme

Thank you of your informative overview of your recent stay.
It is pleasing to to hear that you enjoyed many aspects of the hotel.

Internet access is a subject we are reviewing regularly to see if we are able to offer
the best service possible. We currently have an in room offer of $10.00 per 24 hours
as an option providing you have your own device compared with the 15 minutes free in the lobby.

An all you can eat buffet breakfast is served daily on the first floor, the aromas do not linger down
to the ground floor.

We do struggle to make comparisons to Uptown New York - however Real Estate agents marketing the many apartments being built in the immediate vicinity do get creative with the names used on development sites

We wish you all the best with your travels and look forward to welcoming you when next in Melbourne.

many thanks
