Stayed at the Ibis in mid-July 2013. Excellent value for money- we paid $116 for a twin and single bed room. All amenities were very good, tv, phone, mini-fridge, jug (tea/coffee), safe. Very clean and comfortable. We stayed on floor 11 and absolutely no street noise, however the doors tend to slam quite loudly when they are closed which could be a problem when the hotel is in full occupancy.
The beds were fabulous, SO comfy. We opted for breakfast downstairs in the 'Ibistro'. $20 for non-Accor members and the full-breakfast- eggs, toast, pancakes, tea-coffee, juice, croissants, peach, pear, lychee, watermelon, yoghurt, bacon, tomato, hashbrowns, sauceages, mushrooms etc. Best value for money!
Staff at reception were very helpful, booked our return Skybus shuttle and held our luggage after check-out. (Especially Giovanni, sorry I can't remember exactly your name!!)
The location is a bit out of the CBD, a ten-fifteen minute flat walk got us into Bourke Street mall. However, there is a free city tram (route 35) which runs along La Trobe around the corner which may be useful. Probably not the best for large families with kids, though as facilities for them are a bit lacking.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
