“Handy Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

A hotel withing walking distance to both city and railway was we were looking for and were therefore very impressed with the Ibis in Turbot Street Brisbane..
The staff were welcoming and helpful with directions.
It is extremely quiet inside the rooms and we had everything we needed for a one night stay and an early start..

We needed a place to stay the night after arriving at Brisbane airport in the evening. After some research (and previous experience), we concluded that it was better to take the Airtrain to the CBD than to stay in an overpriced hotel near the airport. We got a really good internet deal for the Ibis Brisbane. It is only three streets down from Roma Street Station. I was amazed when we got to our room. It was on the 15th floor with a great view of the Brisbane River. Everything in the room was top notch. I paid more money for a very plain private room at a nearby backpackers’ hostel last year, and it was not nearly as nice. This was a good choice.

We found the Ibis in Turbot St Brisbane to be very comfortable and affordable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location in the middle of the city is perfect for all the activities Brisbane has to offer and in walking distance too. I will definitely be staying at the Ibis next time I am in town.

This place we only intended to stay 3 day but due to the fact my wife missed her flight in manila we had to stay longer, and yes I had two younger children with me. Located in the heart of the city, near the river, busy area but upon arrival we were welcomed by staff and that was the start of the best stay ever...the children love it and never complained and the staff were always helpful, cleaning staff were amazing, the beds were to die for, the room was awesome I will stay again.

Room Tip: There is no free internet, so chosing ibusiness room gives u free internet, cost the same when I lo...

We booked four rooms here late August 2013, this was a last minute booking as we had wanted to spend an extra day in Brisbane and could not extend our stay in our apartments. Due to the type of trip that we were on, a large family holiday it was a bit disappointing that when we booked adjoining rooms to have adjoining rooms and the adjoining door was not unlocked and we could not unlock it seemed a bit pointless booking an adjoining room.

Staff are friendly and accommodating which was the main positive experience during our stay. The waitress in the restaurant seemed rushed off her feet (Although not dropping her service of us at all) The elevator renovations in the restaurant looked weird and dangerous. The rooms are nicely decorated but very basic but the location is perfect for a late evening shopping trip which is what half of our party did.

Overall OK stay but probably more suited to a couple or single as the rooms became pretty cramped with my 5 and 4 year old.

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear that you were impressed with the friendliness of our staff and our central location to the heart of the Brisbane CBD. With regards to the lift renovations, I can assure you that whilst the exposed structure may be an eye sore, the necessary occupational health and safety standards are being adhered too to ensure the safety of all persons. I do apologize for the misunderstanding in relation to your adjoining rooms and hope that this does not deter you from trying us again.

Kind regards,

Very disappointed with food service offered. Meal had to be picked up on level 1 and was beyond dreadful. I will not be eating form the Ibis Brisbane again as the food looks to be per-purchased from the Coles freezer section.

In-room air conditioning unit turned on and off every 45 minutes waking me during the night.

I had a business room 1126, it had free wifi. very quiet room and very comfortable with 2 queen sized beds.
breakfast was good.
this is a budget hotel but very comfortable, clean and modern. extremely convenient in location.
close proximity to South bank via walk bridge, CBD, and Roma St transit centre.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from elevators.
