Myself and my partner stayed here the night before catching an international flight. The staff were quite accommodating, we travelled about 3.5 hours to get into melbourne and weren't going to make the 10pm check in, we rang ahead and asked if that would be okay and they said yes as we had booked the room online and already paid....

This is a good hotel if you keep in mind that it's a budget offering before you book. You don't get shampoo, the cups provided are styrofoam, you may need to carry your bags up stairs and special requests often cannot be accommodated. But if you want a clean room with comfortable beds, a TV, fridge, kettle and a toilet... More

Definitely budget hotel material, so it's not like I wasn't aware about what I would be walking into. Pro's: The bed is actually super comfortable, the television is good, check in and check out was quick and efficient. Housekeeping was well done and I always came back to a very clean room. 10-15 minute walk to Gowrie train station. Con's:... More

For a very basic stay that is away from all the traffic chaos of Melbourne city, then this is the one. It is in relative close proximity to the airport and transit as well. Accessibility is poor as there is no lift to haul anything above the first level. Great value overall at $89/night.

Stayed for two nights Friday and Saturday. Chose hotel because it had a low tariff and was convenient to get to just off the Ring Freeway. Offers value for money in new clean rooms. Down sides were the mattress was too firm for my liking, the train horn on the rail line next door when some of the trains passed... More

We booked into Ibis in a last minute decision I'm very surprised Ibis have their name on a place like this. While the room was clean it was extremely small in fact I struggled to get between the end of the bed and the wall. The toilet and shower are in a wardrobe style room and me being a bigger... More

Booked this as close to the airport and IBIS has a good name. Tried to cancel as soon as I realised it might be awful but they took money right away and would have charged to cancel. Arrived to be questioned about our booking not a good start. Very small room with no comfort looking out at concrete wall next... More

One night that we regret to have passed there. 89$ for 3 of us, alright. Ibis BUDGET, alright. You know what to expect right? It was pretty clean, quiet (even the window on the car park), but August in Melbourne, it's pretty cold you know. The kid is pretty sensitive so we avoid any air-con & the only way to... More
