Ibis Budget Hotel Sydney Airport
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Mascot
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Flight delayed at last minute due to bad weather up north-- where to stay, most hotels close to Sydney International Airport very expensive--NOT the Formule 1, 5mins walk from airport-- staff very welcoming-rooms fairly large
doudle glazing on windows ensured a quiet night-snack attack there are the usual cheap eateries with in 2 mins walk.I was recovering from an earlier fall which was obvious looking at my cut face, the staff offered a late checkout plus panadol asprin, nice touch.Highly recommend as first choice close to airport.

Room Tip: one night no history

AUD $109 a night, ouch. But a 10 min easy walk from the domestic terminal. not signposted, but google maps will get you on your way. easy checkin. dunkin donuts, mcdonalds and kfc next door, so no problem getting a feed. there is a $6 shuttle to the international terminal but leaves at 5am, so no good if you have a 6am flight. as i had a 7am flight, 5am shuttle wasn't quite early enough. taxi is $18 flat rate, dunno if this is 'allowed' or should be on the meter, but I didn't bother to ask, got a free morning newspaper from the driver, nice. bed was comfy, shower was hot, soap was small but adequate. roller curtain blocked 100% of the light from dunkin donuts carpark. room had a clock radio and TV, very basic but ok. would i stay here again or stay in the city and train in? I dunno, depends on the price, but id stay here again probably.

Room Tip: avoid the front extension, slightly noisy from arriving aircraft, but not a biggie as flights finish...

If you are travelling in or out of Sydney airport this hotel is cheap, clean and comfortable. I'd rather save my money for the trip and thishotel often allows me to do that. The staff are helpful and its 5 mnutes walk from the domestic terminal and $6 shuttle bus ti international.

This was my second experience of Formula 1 Hotels, and it was an overall very positive experience and value for money.
It was perfectly located, enabling us to walk to and from the nearby Sydney airport. The rooms were nice and fresh and clean, allowing for a comfortable stay. I would be very happy to stay in a Formula 1 Hotel again, and would certainly recommend it to friends.

We stay at this hotel only for transit as we must go to the airport at 5.30 AM. We only used it to sleep 4 hour :)

The location of this hotel only 5-10 minutes on foot to the airport terminal (domestic & international). As we carrying a big luggage, its not a big problem because there is a good pedestrian to walk through.

We stay at 1 room for 4 people. Consist of 1 queen bed and 2 bunk bed. The room is big enough to put our big luggage. It has a small TV and ensuite bathroom. But, the bath room doesnt have good curtain to prevent the water from shower. So, the floor will be wet after someone taking a bath.

Overall, it is a recommended hotel only for transit and little nap. Btw, the check in process is very fast !! nice!!

We had to fly very early in the morning so we got 2 rooms in the Formula 1 near Sydney airport. It was a very good rate near the airport and near various takeaway food outlet.Free parking and clean and well looked after units
