4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

People who write reviews on here about the hotel rooms being too small, basic, cheaply fit out clearly don't know what they are buying. It's an ibis. These things are why the rooms are cheaper. If it's unclean fair enough but my room was spotless, bed comfortable, shower hot, staff friendly. Nothing else needed.

Quite a small room compared to other hotels. I was on my own so perfectly adequate. Clean and compact ensuite, overall clean room. Mattress on a wood base was just a bit too firm for my liking. Very close to freeway and was just outside the luckily non-opening window. Double glazing stopped most of the noise except for the early... More

A basic hotel with little amenities. Dinner was cooked from pre frozen food with little flavour or presentation. Basic breakfast comprising off coffee, scrambled eggs and burnt bacon however staff were friendly. Not withstanding this location is ideal as hotel located on Darling Harbour near the water.

Yes the rooms are very compact but they contained everything you might need for a short stay in a perfect spot. I stayed at this hotel one night to attend a conference. Perfect for me travelling by myself and to be honest most people staying were probably business travelling and being out all day the size of the room was... More

Stayed here for the Vivid festival. Staff were very helpful and friendly and breakfast buffet was the same as any other hotel but included with our room for free, no complaints here! The view was straight through an office building but the room was extremely clean and the shower and bathroom was very pleasant! Bed was comfortable as well. The... More

Booked the basic room with Accor Membership free night and got a free upgrade to a King Harbour view room. Comfortable but basic room with all the required amenities. Small bathroom, but clean. Happy to recommend this as base to explore the city. With all the restaurants and sites to see in the area you'll probably spend most time away... More

Location wise this hotel is close to waterfront restaurants but a bit off the main shopping area. It has fairly tidy furnishings as you would expect from a newish hotel. The rooms are tiny (I'd compare them to hotels in singapore) but have most of what you would expect. The rooms need more careful cleaning and some maintenance. On arrival... More

We have now stayed at the Ibis King Street Wharf twice and will stay again. It is located a little out of the hustle and bustle but so close to all the great restaurants on King Street Wharf. Good parking for the car and such pleasant and helpful front desk personnel. Always feel very welcome and nothing is too much... More
