The main attraction of this hotel is that it is walking distance of Melbourne Airport. It is however an ex Formule 1 style hotel so resembles a lot of prefabricated units stacked on top of one another with few frills. The bedroom we had had two single beds with a third bed bunk style above the two main beds, but...

Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback in regard to your recent stay with us . We certainly understand that the hotel does not have the largest rooms in the precinct and it is for that reason that we are consistently priced at a fraction of what the other hotels at the airport sell...

Was a bit hard to find in the dark (it's behind the McDonald's restaurant). Only a 5-10 min walk from the airport. Small but clean and modern room. Has a TV and tea/coffee making which was great. Very small bathroom cubicle but is adequate for a short stay. Great price for this hotel. We had a very late check-in which...

The Ibis is a good hotel for about half the price or better than the others at the airport. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. If you are on the freeway side you will hear the traffic and you can hear people in the corridor as they come and leave at all times of the night. If...

OK, so you're tired, you've been traveling all day, you've another day to go and you're on a lay over until the next flight......now what do you want from a hotel? Clean sheets, comfy bed, hot shower and bloody close to the airport as possible perhaps tea/coffee makings and a TV? The Ibis has all of this, in buckets! The...

The location is definitely the best thing going for this place. It is a ten minute walk from Melbourne airport. I stayed here by myself on a layover. Check-in and check-out were simple enough. I was on the third floor. Taking the stairs was not that bad. The room is very small. The shower feels like a camp shower. I...

It was everything I needed for a short stop over, close to the airport (if you have a lot of luggage you can take one of the airport trollys with you the path lead all the way there). Dont expect super luxery , but the place is very clean and well fitted. The one draw back is not sure if...

This hotel offers great value. The showerhead is fabulous, beds are extremely comfortable with crisp white sheets and the towels are soft. The double glazing and thick blind means no noise or light from outside if you need a good night of sleep. The continental breakfast is good and there is even a small bar fridge in the room. Downsides...

Really enjoyed the stay. Very good helpful staff. The rooms compact but functional. Easy access to the airport and a quick meal nearby. My only area I think needs to be looked at was the air conditioner I let vent was full of fluff and restricted the airflow. Will defiantly stay again.
