I was a bit shocked to start with with the size of the room as there was no separate bathroom as such, the shower was in like a closet, with the sink jutting into the bedroom and the toilet in a cupboard. But the bed was really comfy and the shower really strong and hot Carpet in the whole place was a lot stained and crusty feeling

Ibis budget Melbourne CBD is very conveniently located right in the heart of Melbourne - so everything is within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is looking very tired indeed. The carpets in the common area on my floor were quite gross actually. The room was jail-cell like. The shower *in the room!* was certainly a bit of a shock. The bed was rock hard. My room door got quite stuck and required a lot of effort to open - a bit of a fire safety hazard. The curtains only reached half way down the windows so the rest of the windows were just painted black. And although the room and linens seemed mostly clean, I could not vouch for their attention to detail as the window sills and surrounds were quite dirty. Not too bad for a very short, budget stay, but I would not recommend this hotel.

The light under the TV kept me awake at night and the traffic outside was a problem as well.

Reasonable price. Small room but clean. Amenities were few. Staff on check-in weren’t overly welcoming. Staff on check out were much better. Not terrible experience but have had better at other ibis hotels.

This property is central and thus a convience. I paid for a 2hr later check out upon check in and still had a staff member yelling at me through the door that I have to check out at the original check out time. Not impressed at all.
