“Convenient location and helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I've stayed here twice on brief 2-3 night visits to Melbourne. It's a functional and comfortable hotel at a realistic price, with helpful staff at the front desk. I especially like it for its location. Arriving at Melbourne Airport and taking the Skybus to Southern Cross Station, it's then just a 5 minute walk to the hotel. No need for a taxi. And from the hotel, it's a just short walk to the central shopping and business area; trams nearby also.

Very compact, clean and good for budget travel as close to sky bus depot and trains. Unfortunately housekeeping ignore their own "sleeping" signs and watch out for the under performing TV remotes as you can end up being asked to pay for unwanted and unused movie packages if you are woken up by them and try to switch on the TV without your eye glasses. Plenty of door shutting and internal hallway noise at night, very ordinary buffet breakfast for a hotel and a concrete wall view from the room complete the picture. Didn't see any pool and didn't need room service.

Dear 512traveller

Thanks for your time to provide valuable feedback. Our sincere apologies that aspects of the stay were of a frustrating nature. We have passed your feedback onto the relevant departments for corrective action.

The hotels location in the heart of the city is surrounded by tall buildings and there are no views from the rooms. The hotel does not have a pool.

All the best with your travels.

Nothing but positive comments as with previous guests.

The room was smaller by North American standards - not cramped, rather nice n' cozy. All amenities one gets in North America there as well. As noted by all reviewers location, staff, cost all positive.

A really nice touch for us Seniors - when it was ascertained we were celebrating a 45th Anniversary there was the lovely bottle of wine in our room. Further, when the Front Desk saw one of us was somewhat mobility impaired we were given a room next to the elevators without having to swallow pride & ask.

It is touches like this that make a great Hotel a Super hotel - often at a par or exceeding hotels of higher prices and service.

We just loved our too short a stay here. Needless to say we recommend this establishment to all. If ever we should be back in Melbourne we'll be here.

Room Tip: In any hotel the higher the better. There is construction next door at the time of our visit. Only...

As we had an early morning flight, we stayed at the Ibis for a couple of reasons. The room cost was very reasonable for a Melbourne CBD hotel and it is close to Southern Cross station and the Skybus to the airport.

The room had two single beds and although on the small side, was clean and comfortable. Our view was of a blank concrete wall, but this didn't worry us as we were only there for one night. If you are staying a few days, this may be an issue.

As hotels near the airport can be close to $300, the Ibis is a far better alternative. I'm more than happy to stay here again.

Great to hear from you - and many thanks for your time. We are please to hear that
you found many aspects of the hotel appealing.

Being located in the heart of the city - views are limited.
Look forward to seeing you next time.

Location is convenient, at the edge of town and across the road from Southern Cross Station. Beds were a little too soft -- gives you aches after a couple of days.

Staff were generally friendly and helpful -- although some were not.
Rooms were promptly cleaned when we get back every night.

This is a real gem in an expensive town - neat and tidy rooms, immaculate bathrooms and a short walk to all the Melbourne action, hard to beat for price and convenience. And the staff are really friendly - a cheery greeting goes a long way - and helpful - oh that other establishments would follow suit. Ibis seems to have given their properties a major overall - this was our first experience but we will be back.

You kind of know what to expect when you book an Ibis, so once you're not expecting five star facilities you won't be disappointed.

That said, the staff here were extremely helpful, and the hotels location couldn't have been better for us. We were visiting the city for 3 days so wanted to see as much as possible on that time.

The rooms were a reasonable size, the bed comfortable and the shower was good, what more could you ask for from an Ibis.
