We stayed here on an organised group bus trip, from country NSW to see the football at the MCG.
Easy to find, parking out the front, underground parking for guest's vehicles.
Check-in was a breeze, no hassles.
The only issue at this stage was a few of our travelling companions, who took some time to work out that you have to swipe your card in the lift THEN press the floor you need...lol. some had 3 trips via reception before they worked it out!
The rooms were roomy & spotless.
Much bigger than a couple of the other Ibis properties I've stayed in.
The bathroom was large & on the same level as the room...no stepping up into a pod!
Spotless bathroom, toiletries & hairdrier supplied.
Flat screen TV worked well, & the beds were comfy.
We got back from the footy & decided to use the Grab & Go Menu, which we had to go down to reception to get. It's been in the other Ibis rooms I've stayed in.
A good selection, but a bit pricey...$10 for 3 scoops ice-cream & a thin squiggle of choc topping was a bit rich, but all that was available without leaving the hotel. The vending machine on Level 3 was broken, which was a pain, as we would've been happy with something from there.
We went across to the Queen Victoria markets for breakfast, & found a nice little cafe tucked away in one of the lanes. didn't eat at the Ibis bistro/restaurant.
Checkout was again not a problem. Staff were friendly and helpful.
All in all, a good stay, would recommend to other travellers without hesitation.
