I am a very frequent traveller, and I have over the years stayed in many Ibis hotels in Asia and in the Middle East. The Little Bourke Street Ibis is by far the worst, and I am amazed at the poor standard. This Ibis hotel is squeezed in between industrial looking buildings/lofts ..it doesn't look or feel like a usual Ibis hotel.
Check-in was a breeze, and the Front Desk was about the best experience about this place. Room size appeared to be smaller than the usual Ibis experience. The bath room was about the only other highlight , other than the Front Desk.
What irked me were 2 things:
My room looked out onto the facade, about 5 meters away, of an ugly industrial building ..couldn't even see the sky. So here is a warning for those hotel guests with claustrophobic tendencies ..stay away.
The other irk was the breakfast - what a desaster; a very small breakfast room ..more like an odd corner quick snack canteen than an Ibis breakfast room. The fruit juices were dispensed out of the original catering containers; the coffee machine dispensed hot milk froth only ...no sign of any coffee when I pressed the Latte , or the Cappuccino buttons ...
In summary, this Ibis is an Ibis Hotel by name only ..it does not at all reflect the usual standard of the many Ibis hotels I have been to.
