Stayed here while on a trip for an AFL game at Etihad Stadium, great location, only a 2 minute walk away. Bourke Street Mall, Flinders Street and Yarra River a short walk away or close to free city circle tram. Staff were helpful and polite. Breakfast included with my room, food was absolutely fantastic.. huge big plate of toast, eggs, mushrooms, bacon and juice. Room was small but clean and comfy.. ideal for those who just want somewhere to sleep and will be out during the day. Recommended for stay if attending a Etihad Stadium game.

good clean hotel, close to southern cross station and walking distance to MCG our highlight at staying at this hotel was the Buffet breakfast which was included in the price. Older style building but clean rooms and presentation was good. Staff were helpful and quick in checking in Guests.

Let's begin with the location, perfect for any first timer in Melbourne; right in the heart of the CBD. You've got Southern Cross 2 blocks away, so you are well catered for. After this, the hotel begins to fall flat; stayed in a standard double with a single room which had everything that a hotel room needed; bathroom, beds, TV, but you'd be hard pressed to figure out what kind of hotel you were in. Place it side by side to an average motel, and there's no difference; the room was small, the placement of furniture was odd, the bathroom was clearly aged, the list goes on. Personally, I don't mind staying in a room like this, but it just didn't fit the ibis Styles name, it just made no sense. Taking a trip to the higher floors did reveal the hotel's renovated rooms which were bright and lively and did provide light on the possible naming. However, since changing managements of the hotel, more should have been done by now for the older rooms.

It ultimately boils down to the price, with one of the cheapest rates in the area, it made sense to have a room with some serious R&R issues, but don't put the ibis Styles name on it, there's already an allocation for that (ibis Budget). I have stayed in an ibis Styles before, this is nothing like that.

Room Tip: There is an ibis Styles nearby with an added $10 rates (The Victoria Hotel), that is far better, but...

Dear Joshua P,

Thank you for commenting on your recent stay with us. I was pleased to see you enjoyed our location and it's proximity to so many things that Melbourne has to offer.

Thank you as well for highlighting our branding of ibis Styles, since the ibis Megabrand project was rolled out at the end of 2012 we embrace the opportunity to discuss the project and what can be expected from the three brands that sit within the Megabrand. You will definitely find a strong consistency across properties that are branded ibis or ibis budget, but part of the uniqueness of ibis Styles is the freedom and variations that appear from hotel to hotel. As you point out we are truly spoiled here in Melbourne with 5 options of the various brands in the CBD alone!

Kind regards,
Rob Unson
