Ibis Budget Hotel Sydney Airport
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Mascot
Reviewed September 16, 2007

Stayed in Sep 2007 for one night.

Hotel location is an easy 10 minute stroll from Domestic Terminal, next door to Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Extremely fast check in (fastest ever of any hotels we have stayed at) and check out (again, another record). Staff very friendly.

Rooms are small but functional. Shower design leaves water all over bathroom floor. Only 2 bath towels provided - no floor towel.
2 plastic cups and a bar of soap are the only other supplies.

Ironing faciltites in common laundry on ground floor.

There is no fridge in the room, nor are there tea/coffee making facilities in the room (no kettle). Vending machines selling coffee, snacks and Lean Cuisine is located next to reception.

A microwave is also available in the communal kitchen.

Hair dryers (very good units) can be borrowed from reception. A fully refundable $20 deposit is required.

Only free to air TV channels available

The air conditioning was somewhat noisy and some question on effectiveness.

Despite jets flying straight overhead, external noise was not an issue.

Overall, a very basic, but extremely economical place to stay.

I've stayed at this Formule 1 on numerous occasions and always found it to be convenient, cheap hotel close to the airport. Every time I stay there the rate seems go up, the last time it was $84 a night, but there is no charge for parking now so that's a plus.

Its long corridors, cheap carpet and heavy automatic closing doors make for a noisy nights sleep. When the room doors close near-by you certainly hear them. But once you're accustomed to them, they are not
a problem.

Positives: Great value, close to airport, friendly and helpful staff,
air-conditioned rooms, very clean rooms and linen, airport facing rooms have a great view, double glazing, next door to Krispy Kreme.

Negatives: Noisy at night before everyone goes to bed.

Very basic rooms, but clean, tidy and fairly new. The rooms were suprisingly quiet - did not hear a peep. Breakfast was good - nice to see the vegemite again after an extended holiday overseas. Manager and other staff were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and it was very well-priced.

We have stayed at this property several times. The family rooms are very clean with a queen bed and a set of bunks. Small but when all you need is a bed it is the perfect place for an overnight before your flight....and a Krispy Kreme next door for a midnight treat.

BUT what makes this an excellent hotel is the service from Adam, Helen and staff. They cannot do enough to help with any queries, maps, local knowledge etc..

I highly recommend this motel to all.

Small room, basic clean facilities (no cooking), but all you need for a cheap airport stopover if arriving late or leaving early. Air conditioned. Free airport transfer, helpful staff, breakfast (only) available. Good value for money.
