The bed had no spring in it, it was flat and saggy. The room was clean but very small, saying that it was a budget hotel.

Hi Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide us with some valuable feedback. My sincerest apologies that the experience fell below your expectations. I am very sorry to hear that the bed was not comfortable for you. I can happily say that we have already started to upgrade the beds throughout the entire hotel, and are not far off that now! Also, I can understand about the layout of the room as the rooms are definitely on the smaller side and the design is quite unique. Thank you again for sharing your experience with us, and we hope to be able to welcome you back to the hotel on your next visit to Canberra! Kind regards Deeptee Jhurree Guest service agent

really compact size room. like a cabin in train or boat. The restroom is enough for 1 man standing. Have to change and dress outside. A sink for washing is outside. It is for single backpacker. Not recommended for traveler.

Hi Mike! I completely understand where you are coming from. The rooms are definitely on the smaller side and can be a bit uncomfortable for some but I hope it did the trick in terms of providing a clean place to stay at a budget price. If you need that little bit more space for when you next return to Canberra, may I suggest one of the three Ibis Styles properties that reside in ACT - Ibis Styles Eaglehawk, Ibis Styles Tall Trees or Ibis Styles Canberra. All three have competitive rates, but the rooms are little larger! Thank you again for sharing your experience and I hope you enjoy your next trip to Canberra. Kind Regards, Jeanie Alair Assistant Manager Ibis Budget Canberra

Hi there! Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide us with an honest feedback. My sincerest apologies that the experience did not quite meet expectations. I definitely understand where your frustration is coming from as the rooms are definitely on the smaller side and the design is quite unique and are not to everyone's tastes. I do hope though, that it did the job in providing you with a clean and comfortable nights sleep at a budget price. Thank you again for sharing your experience.
