I wanted a place to sleep in the middle of 40hrs of travel. I stayed here because it looked cheap and close to the airport. 1) the shuttle was nearly impossible to find. I emailed the hotel about shuttle hours and they never replied. Airport staff mis-directed me to the shuttle 3x. I finally got the last one of the...

If not for the fact that we arrived off an international flight late and were out again next morning would not have stayed. Rude, arrogant receptionist. Asked about extra hour (11) check out. "You want room, you pay extra" in her authoritarian I am doing you such a favour voice. Wi fi is non existent. No power plug in bathroom,...

Although close to the airport this hotel is basic. 20$ deposit for a hair dryer, and no phone in room to contact reception etc. We paid 20$ extra for what turned out to be the same size room with a single and double bed! Milk was off too so had to go down to reception to request fresh?

Stayed there one night based on the reviews on this site. Air conditioner did not work. Smallest room I have ever stayed in. Room had old carpet and uncomfortable bed. I would never stay at this place again. Really disappointed with the people who wrote really good reviews of this place. Even if the air worked this place could never...

Thought I was booking the Regular Ibis hotel at the airport but somehow ended up at the Ibis Budget. This is seriously budget, about one step above a hostel. While it was clean, unless you are running out of cash, stay somewhere else!

This is not a good hotel, but to be honest, it does not pretend to be anything else. The photos are misleading, for example, in my room the bedside lamps were bare bulbs, not as in the photos. The food nearby is horrible (KFC or MacDonalds) but it is an easy 10 minute walk to the domestic terminal where eating...
