“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Excellent location, close to Victoria Market, city center and other places of interest. Spacious and clean rooms. Good service. Good price! Our window was very close to the next commercial building - no view at all, but for this reason it was very quite at night! Highly recommended if you're not looking for a 5-6 stars hotel.

For business travellers who want to sneak out and catch a bit of Melbourne atmosphere, the Ibis is a great option. It is only a block from the Victoria Markets, and the markets open extremely early, so it's easy to duck over before work and have a fantastic breakfast while browsing the delicatessen hall. The Ibis itself is a fairly utilitarian hotel in keeping with the chain's image, but the rooms are clean and well appointed. I found the staff to be kind and helpful.

The hotel is in a great spot and up until now I have always been in an apartment style room. The rooms are spotlessly clean and clutter free. There is an iPod doc with great sound. Bathrooms have a timber look floor with modern fittings.
It's a shame that the only thing letting the hotel down is the lack differential service provided to Silver Advantage plus members. There is no benefit for being a long standing member when you are greeted. I choose to stay here often on business and would enjoy some additional benefits. Maybe a drink or an upgrade or even acknowledgment of my loyalty. Special mention to Leo in tue restaurant. He always remembers to welcome me back and ask how my family are doing. He should be training others on what hospitality is all about.

The staff on the desk were extremely helpful and friendly. When I first arrived I felt intensely odd whilst talking to the staff member at the desk. It wasn't until I got in the lift on the way up to my room that I realised why - I was in shock. Coming from Perth where staff pride themselves on being as unpleasant, rude and disinterested as humanly possible, I was simply shocked that someone in a service position would be nice to a customer.

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was great. I was catching up with friends and the size of the living area was perfect. The bedroom was nice and clean and the bathroom was spotless and appeared to have been renovated recently. They also had nice new carpet in the hallways - it was very thick too which I am sure helped dampen any noise from other visitors. Check out it is at 11 which is also a plus.

The only detractions were:
* I prefer to walk around and this place is a fair way out of the city (although very close to the markets and right in the middle of a number of tram lines).
* The tap in the kitchen dripped a bit.
* There was a dubious stain on one of the pillows in the living room.
* My king size bed was two single beds which I hate with the strength of a thousands suns.
* They do not have a facility to store baggage after you check out. Apparently there are lockers you can hire. I believe any decent quality hotel can surely set aside a small room for you to leave you bags in.
* The shower is built for hobbits (but that is usually the case).

Overall a great place to stay.

The hotel actually does not have anything to complaint about, but at the same time, nothing really great to say of either. The room was ok, clean, bathroom ok with just a shower cap, two soap cakes and two normal towels. Had a restuarant, but did not have time to really check it out. While the price charged seemed to be too much on the higher side, for what you really get back in terms of add ons. And the internet was a wired internet which I had a hard time to connect to as my laptop wasn't configured for this. You now hardly need this wired connection, everywhere it is wifi.
