“A convenient and friendly hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

The location is very convenient being directly across the main road from the main bus station, including the airport bus, and trains. The narrow entrance off a side street is very inauspicious but this is in contrast to the very warm welcome from the reception staff. They were always very pleasant. As I was staying 3 nights I was given a free upgrade to one to one of the best rooms - eighth floor, very spacious with floor to ceiling windows at one end. All was bright clean and modern. There was something of a view - not easy given the location of the hotel. I was impressed by the two layers of roller blinds but there is problem with all blinds that they let in light round the sides. The bathroom was fairly small but well designed with a good shower. Everything was very clean. The bed was comfortable and I heard no noise at all at night. The only problem was the air conditioning, which was ineffective. I reported this to the maintenance man who made some improvements but it was still not all that good.
Near reception there was a good free computer which I used daily rather than pay for w-fi. I did not have the buffet breakfast, as there were numerous cafes in the streets nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front and back have some degree of outlook but those at the side face on to a wall.

While it was a roof over our heads and a bed to sleep in it wasn't much more than a step up from a backpackers. While it was close to Southern Cross Station it was nowhere near anything else. The reception area was dark and basic, infact the hallways and rooms were on the dark side too. Our bed was hard and our room was very noisy, the airconditioning and bathroom fan sounded like you were at the airport. Other room and outside noise was an issue. Couln't believe that they charge to lookafter your bags after checkout and before our airport shuttle pickup. On the up side breakfast was well priced and nice. Overall disappointed and won't be back.

Dear Accor Traveller

Many thanks for your time to provide valuable feedback on your recent.

Our sincere apologies that the hotel did not inspire confidence in your
experience. The hotel does have floor to ceiling windows to try and capture
as much natural light as possible, the surrounding tall buildings and overcast weather
can limit the access to this light at times.

We do request that if you find something not to your liking to contact Reception and we will be happy to look for a solution.

At Ibis in lieu of a portering service we offer coin operated lockers. This provides for a safe and easily accessible way to access you bags after departure.

We wish you all the best with your travels.

many thanks

Close to all the amenities, transport, & featured attractions. Able to use the Shuttle tram service, within easy walking distance to the airport shuttle service. Room was clean & tidy, bed very comfortable.

This hotel was clean and tidy. The room was pretty cramped with toilet and bathroom forming part of the main room. Shower was step in the bath type. After dark it soon became apparent that the building next door was a nightclub as the boom boom music came at us through the walls. I would not stay here again but that is a choice of mine in relation to the enjoyment of peace an quiet. The one Staffmember I saw was friendly although I found a lot of difficulty locating henim when I wanted a beer and had to go for the leave the hotel option.

Dear dancing_2005

Many thanks for your time in providing valuable feedback on your recent stay at the hotel.

Apologies that the staff member was not available at the time you required to assist with your
beverage requirements. We have shared and discussed this with the team to take steps that this does not occur in the future.

There are a range of room types and the standard double and twin rooms are compact. All rooms have a shower over the bath and discussion are planned for 2013 too see what steps the hotel is able to undertake to have the baths removed and replaced with a shower only.

The hotel is located adjacent to the popular weekend nightclub area of King Street. At times this can be challenging and we continue to work closely with authorities as required.

Many thanks and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
