Very noisy, with a ghastly toilet and shower experience.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Cath C. Business - 13/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Your website stated that the building had been designed so that aeroplane noise did not affect the sleepers, and this was correct, but the inside of the accommodation was not at all noise resistant. Even if someone closed the door quietly at night I could still hear it down the corridor and I could also hear the man on the other side of the wall from me snoring, so no noise quietening was apparent inside. Getting in and out of the toilet and shower was extremely difficult with arthritis in my feet and every time I stepped in or out the entire toilet shower room shook. The fact that there was a large step up into the bathroom should most definitely be advertised on your website, as even though I don’t need an Accessible bathroom, this one was close to not being usable.

Five minutes walk to the airport

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Ross Solo - 12/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

This little hotel is five minutes walk to the airport. The rooms are small but they are spotlessly clean. The beds are comfy, the water is hot and everything worked. Better still the member on deck was pleasant and helpful.

No cooling for the aircon meant sleepless stuffy night .. and bathroom was ridiculous . No shuttle to airport was a bit disappointing given location ..

One night stop over awaiting flight.

Good locality to airport departure terminal, within walking distance. On arrival we were given keys to a room that was still occupied, somewhat awkward as the occupier had just gotten out of shower. Clean room with basic facilities, ideal for a budget hotel.

Nicky Families - 06/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was very small and couldn't wait to get out of it. Shower had a big step into it. The bed was very comfortable which served my purpose. HOW THE HELL CAN I CONTINUE WITH THIS BLOODY SURVEY WHEN YOU DON'T GIVE AN OPTION FOR 'HOW DID YOU BOOK'. I CAN'T REMEMBER . TO CONTINUE, I'LL JUST RANDOMLY SELECT ANY THING!!!!!!

It was convenient and friendly, as usual.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The air conditioning in the room was great. The room was a little bit stuffy, as if the plastic was starting to age. We did however get used to this.

Peebee Business - 02/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

My booking was cancelled more than a month ago due to unforeseen work circumstances. Consequently I lost the prepayment completely I frequently stay in Melbourne overnight and will have to reconsider my options of using Ibis Budget Melbourne Airport

Good sleep. Place needs a lift. Third Floor residents with heavy luggage/alot of luggage become a safety risk coming down the stairs.

Budget is well named

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Deefan54 Solo travel - 31/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Well expected slightly better in the budget range from Accor, inside looking very tired , room ok for a 1 night stay(would not stay longer) no lift so a struggle to 2nd floor if you have heavy luggage. 2 stars given as that's the best it's worth

Pleasant to stay overnight, wouldn't recommend for longer stays.

Naomi Families - 30/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The rooms are small and can be rather claustrophobic with the bunk above the single beds, however the beds were comfortable.

Reasonably happy.

I arrived in Melbourne at midnight and have used the ibis hotel a few times. It's close to the airport and the breakfast in the morning is perfect

Excellent proximity to Airport

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Robyn G. Solo - 28/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

With an early morning flight from Tullamarine, the Ibis is good value for money and an easy walk to the airport. The hotel is basic, but clean. The desk staff member was polite, professional and helpful. The room was clean, with good basic facilities. I always use this hotel and highly recommend it for a good nights sleep before or after a flight.

Not really a great hotel

Brian R. Solo - 28/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Was on 2nd floor & there is no lift,(anyone with large luggage would struggle up the stairs) , decor was looking very tired, room very hot as a.c. had not been turned on. Was just about ok for 1 night (would never stay longer)

Communication painful!

Karen A. G. Families - 21/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Look, it is what it is with regards to the product.. it’s no Taj Majal and we needed a few hours only but man oh man, the service and communication was next level! The night service guy got there in the end but only because I really had to be firm and refer him to the emailed correspondence with the manager.. (who clearly did NOT convey our requirement to the reservation system) I was outside on my phone considering taking an Uber to my mothers house is Mt Martha because of the muck up at arrival at 1115pm Then there’s the three calls I made to the site which have still not been returned. Then there’s the lack of communication the housekeeping as to who is leaving and when and the mess in which they work.. Then there’s the emails you send because they don’t answer their phone and those take days to respond. The kiosk is in disrepair out the front. A random carmat in a pot plant just dumped out the front. All in all, a very disorganised operation. I get that this budget property is limited with recourses and staff, but oh man.. if you can’t deliver it at this price, then don’t bloody sell it! Would I stay there again? Oh good grief, not on your nelly!

Never get points after checkout

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Trong_Nguyen_2019 Business - 18/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

I checked out on 29 November but haven't got points credited to my ALL account after nearly three weeks. Sent online missing points enquiries to ALL twice but still no reply. Called the hotel a few times but only reached voicemail, left voicemail but still no one called back. Please really tell me what ways can I contact you to credit points for my stay?

We always stay at the Ibis, this time disappointed because we were put upstairs and at 75yrs old and dragging our suit cases up did not make for a good start. My wife said she should have asked for a lower floor room, I said maybe staff could also ask the same. Next really blew me up when the young man at the desk ask for our credit card numbers to put into YOUR computer I angerly told him WE don't even put it in ours. WHY would your company want my card numbers, VERY BAD POLICY our cards are for us and nobody else. Please give us a reason for this. We will be staying again and hope things change by us and by yourselves.

It was ground floor which was great as we are in our 70’s. The rooms were clean. It was fairly quiet.
