I wanted to find a reasonably priced hotel near the Melbourne Convention centre and also close to transport. I catch the bus to/from the airport so the IBIS was perfect.

I was upgraded to a room with a king sized bed which was a nice touch. The bed was great. I had read previous comments about noisy neighbours but I had no problem, The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great.

All in all a great budget stay in Melbourne.

When we travel we go for the destination, rather than the hotel. The Ibis fulfilled all that we wanted. It was clean, the bed was excellent and it was quiet. An added bonus was a city scape view from our 8th floor room. The location was great- 2 mins walk from Southern Cross station and a block from the trams that took 5 mins to central Melbourne. Highly recommended and outstanding value for money

Room Tip: We liked the 8th floor

We recently stayed at the Ibis Little Bourke Street on an Accor special. Our room was basic, but very clean (as other reviewers have noted) & very good value considering what we paid. We liked the free internet access in the lobby & found the reception staff very cheerful & helpful. The location has pluses & minuses - it is close to Southern Cross Station which is convenient for getting to & from the airport on the Skybus, but the area around the hotel is far from attractive & it's a bit of a walk to the centre of town. Another complaint is that after checkout, you either have to leave your luggage unsecured in a room or else pay for lockers. Usually hotels offer free secure luggage-minding facilities. We know this is a budget hotel, but it wouldn't take much effort to lock the luggage room & issue tickets for luggage collection. On balance, I think I would rather pay more & stay in a better part of town.

Dear Anne and Ross,

Thank you for your time to share your valuable feedback on your recent trip to Melbourne.

We are pleased to hear that you appreciated the pride housekeeping take in keeping the rooms clean along with the daily 15 minutes free internet in the lobby. This internet access is proving to be very popular with many of our guests.

The hotels location is within the CBD's golden mile near the financial and courts area of the city. Swanston Street Walk is 4 blocks away or a short ride on a Melbourne tram.

The choice of luggage storage is as you outlined - we take on board your comments and will refer your comments to those in the financial area to evaluate.

We wish you all the best with your future travels.

take care

Getting off at the Sky Bus terminal at Southern Cross station I asked one of their staff where Hotel ibis Little Bourke St is, and he showed me where to go, a couple hundred metres walk in a laneway and there I was, no taxi fare or nothing. Easy check in, they asked for my Accor members card and gave me an Accor bag-tag. Checked-in to room 218, which is at the end of the hall, and it's a nice room with queen-sized bed with good bathroom facilities (even a bath-tub too). The only drawback I had was the bath-tub window only covered halfway, would've been nice if it did all the way, check the photos to see what I mean. So, close to the station, on a laneway so I could be away from the noise of main-streets, and a big enough room to walk around. I recommend this hotel and would stay back again.

Stayed here last week due to location from Southern Cross Station and the SkyBus terminal only 500 metres walk away.

Cosy small room with all normal Hotel amenities. Would go back again for a 1 to 2 night stay as close to CBD. Very good reception staff.

Room Tip: ask for high room as noise from street could be a nuisance

The location is very convenient being directly across the main road from the main bus station, including the airport bus, and trains. The narrow entrance off a side street is very inauspicious but this is in contrast to the very warm welcome from the reception staff. They were always very pleasant. As I was staying 3 nights I was given a free upgrade to one to one of the best rooms - eighth floor, very spacious with floor to ceiling windows at one end. All was bright clean and modern. There was something of a view - not easy given the location of the hotel. I was impressed by the two layers of roller blinds but there is problem with all blinds that they let in light round the sides. The bathroom was fairly small but well designed with a good shower. Everything was very clean. The bed was comfortable and I heard no noise at all at night. The only problem was the air conditioning, which was ineffective. I reported this to the maintenance man who made some improvements but it was still not all that good.
Near reception there was a good free computer which I used daily rather than pay for w-fi. I did not have the buffet breakfast, as there were numerous cafes in the streets nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front and back have some degree of outlook but those at the side face on to a wall.
