Ibis Budget Brisbane Airport

Reviewed January 16, 2010

Basic i can handle. You know, small room, no room service, no mini bar etc etc. Can do without all that. But, i expect my shower to not smell like a sewer - was so bad, i couldn't shower. I would expect my door to lock. I would expect the manager/owner whoever to be a little polite when i have to drag my luggage down 3 levels to ask them to please fix it - and one would expect, that for $89 a night, that if they knew that the door wasn't working - which i was told by the gentleman that they had been having problems with it - perhaps get it fixed. Just a suggestion. It broke again, after it was 'fixed' so to save upsetting them for a 3rd time, didn't leave my room to get a cool drink or cup of tea because there were no facilities in the room, and i could not ensure my door would lock. And i felt for the other guest who could not get his key after hours and was stuck outside because the check in system not work. Think i would have had a better stay at the airport. and will prob spend more money next time on somewhere at least comfortable and safe.

This is certainly a no frills establishment - but that is what it is about. It is clean and comfortable and ideal for that cheap, between flights sleepover.

I stayed at the Formule 1 Brisbane Airport after a very late arriving flight which was to be folllowed by an early departure.

The hotel was totally unstaffed, meaning that I had to work through a computer at the front desk that eventually (and with great reluctance) issued a room key.

The room was dirty, with spiderwebs hanging from the ceiling and water dripping from the (loud) air conditioner.

Drunks roamed the corridors all night and families were up for early flights from about 5am.

Honestly, cheap is one thing and simple I can handle, but this place was just awful. Even at $89, this is not good value.

Would only recommend this if, like us, you arrive at some ungodly hour and need something close to the Airport.
Very basic rooms, no fridge, no tea or coffee making facilities, difficult to access after hours.
