My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Ibis Budget Hotel for 2 nights when in Melbourne for the Spring Carnival. We were in a room on level 3 and although the room was clean the carpet was badly stained, which was disappointing. The room was small but this was to be expected in a budget chain. We had...

First time that i stay at a Ibis Budget and probably last if i can avoid it. This hotel is well located and that's about the only positive thing I can say about it. The hotel setup is like a hostel, although we have a private room with our own ensuite, the area is very small and lack privacy. We...

I stayed here for 5 nights in September 2014. The room was very small but clean. The sheets are clean. The furniture and walls looked aged. The room was not facing the road so it was very quiet. I slept very well in the room. This is a standard Ibis budget hotel, so for the Price you pay for a...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
