We arrived at this hotel at 1.45am to find the desk unattended even tough I had been told that the desk was attended until 2am.....There was a checkin kiosk which worked quite well when you got the hang of it. This hotel is at Melbourne Airport and believe it or not there are no lifts therefore luggage has to be...

Of all the places to stay at Melbourne Airport, this is about the cheapest, and it is one of three within easy walking distance of all the terminals, though terminal 4 is a bit of a hike. What you get is a tiny room with a tiny prefab plastic bathroom. There is no restaurant, no minibar, no room service, no...

Unfortunately we had to stay overnight to wait for the next morning flight, and between the two hotels nearest the airport, we chose the cheaper one, of course. It does have the word Budget in its title, but still, this is the worst Ibis we've been to. We often stay at Ibis hotels around the globe, and so far they've...

Excellent location short walk from terminal 3. Very quiet but was only there from 11pm to 5am. Small clean room, except there was make-up on one of the pillow covers. Pillows were awful. Shower/toilet pod not good water goes everywhere. Overpriced compared to other ibis I have stayed in. But in saying all that I would still stay there again...

First the good news: comfortable bed, clean linen, reasonable size room. But, don't they ever clean or redecorate this place? The public areas are well worn. My room hadn't been dusted in months, there were cobwebs up the walls and tens of dead mozzies stuck to the ceiling (fortunately none alive, but someone must have had a problem).

This hotel gives good value for money. It has all you need for a brief overnight stop before or after a flight. The addition of mini fridges and tea/coffee making facilities is much appreciated. The only bad point is the lack of lifts - it's a bit hard carrying suitcases up the stairs.

Walking distance from all terminals. Seven to ten minutes unless you are overloaded with luggage. The path is level and well signposted. Have used this hotel more than once and check in easy and pleasant. Room size more than adequate for single traveller or a couple. Great queen bed. Very clean.

Well I don't mind staying in budget accomodations but this one is def. overpriced. Clean bed and sheets, tidy room but so small we couldn't even push our suitcase through the rokm- it had to stay by the door. No switch off for ventilator in the bathroom - so we had free entertainment at night time. Careful when you book-...

Very small rooms which would be ok if you are travelling alone but we were a family of 3 in Melbourne for a Family function. 3 of us could not stand in the room at one time so there was no way we could all get ready in the room. The shower leaked out from the bathroom into the room....
