Handy for Sydney airport.

Room small but had all the usual budget hotel amenities.

Food was average, not bad but not good.

Beds on the soft side,

Didn't get a great nights kip, but this couldbe due to need for a very early start.

Staff pleasant and obliging.

Cheap and cheerful, handy shuttle service.

Would use again

We were booked to fly from London to Sydney, arriving at 6am local time, and then an onward domestic connection to Brisbane later the same day. After such a gruelling 24 hour flight, it seemed like a good idea to book into a budget airport hotel in Sydney for a few hours rest, prior to continuing to our destination. Some weeks before we left London, I made a booking online at the Ibis Sydney airport hotel. I sent an immediate follow up email, explaining we would not be checking in until around 7am the following morning and would be staying only a few hours. This booking cost us $167 plus we were charged an extra $20 to have a later checkout.

Upon checkin, there was no record of my email and we were asked for another $40 on top due to the later checkout. We complained and then were told that there is a Day Rate which would have allowed us to stay for the same amount of time, for the sum of $99. I queried why we were not told at the time of booking, and asked the Duty Manager to review the amount we were being charged. She declined but agreed to stick to the original agreement of $20 extra for a later checkout, as by this time they had found my email. So we paid $187 for something we could have had for $99. Bad commercial decision, Duty Manager! Not smart. Never again.

Perfect for preparing for an early morning flight with the ability to enjoy the sights of Sydney CBD the night before, being dinner or a show, this hotel is conveniently located close to the city and even closer to the to the airport.

If you need to stay somewhere close to the airport to get an early flight and just need the basics, stay here - it's not fancy, but it's fine. There are plenty of delivery options for food if the hotel restaurant does not inspire. If you are able to stay elsewhere, do so....Mascot is not the best place from where to experience Sydney, that's for sure. Service was fine and rooms were small but clean and had everything you need for an overnight stay, but this hotel is purely functional and nothing more. Leave yourself at least 30 minutes to get to the airport on the shuttle (extra cost) in the morning as the peak hour traffic can be very heavy.
