The ibis is within walking distance to the airport, the price is okay for what you get. The issue I had with the room was the shower had pubic hair all over the walls, the toilet had long strains of hair on it. The heat pump made (the part that controls where the air blows) rattled horribly when it kicked on, which caused us not to get a good nights sleep. To end on a positive note, the staff were amazing and polite.

Said 5 minutes walk from airport - it was through bush and mud and then crossing busy roads only to not be able to get in on arrival after hours with instructions provided. Accomodation not nice - wouldn’t recommend staying here

This was exactly what we needed before our early flight. A clean comfy bed and it was quiet. Staff were very friendly too!

We stayed here due to the proximity to the airport. The staff were lovely but the hotel itself was pretty atrocious. For $180 you can get a nice hotel in the city but this hotel was more like a cheap hostel. The room was tiny, the bathroom was like an airline bathroom and the water in the toilet was murky brown. Next time I’ll stay in the city and get the Sky Bus shuttle out to the airport for that money.

Great service but terrible "grubby" venue. Covid is NOT an excuse, this is not acceptable. It used to be so clean and bright and cheerful. No money has been spent in 5 years.
