Very small rooms would not be an issue if they were at least clean. Greeted at hotel entrance by bin overflowing with rubbish, foyer dirty and unattended, hall and common areas unkept and worn. Rooms small and not properly cleaned - hair, dirt and worse left from previous occupants.Bathroom capsule mouldy and smells like urine, housekeeping is minimal and tardy....

I stayed at this motel for one night during the Australian Running Festival in Canberra. It's a budget hotel, at a budget price. Comfortable enough bed (though not enough pillows), compact bathroom and quiet location. This girl is easy to find and the price was great. I think one night is enough as it doesn't have a lot of the...

I'm not sure what is happening at the Ibis Budget Canberra but it is currently the accommodation from hell !!! I have stayed there previously as recent as the end of last year and it was fine for budget accommodation. However this time the room could have been cleaner. The front desk area and stairs are very dirty. The bathroom...

So it's your standard îbis budget hotel, rooms were clean though I'll never be a fan of the drop in bathrooms. After a shower every other visit is wading through water. But for the price a good stay and the staff were friendly and helpful. On the staff a big thank you to the cleaners, I left my watch when...

I would not have been so disappointed if it were $60-$75 a night but $110!!???? What a joke. The bathroom was excruciatingly tiny (cruise ship layout minus the vanity.) and the shower full of rust. Why generate so much waste by using plastic hot and cold cups and spoons? Surely you have a functional laundry and kitchen since youre servicing...

The room was small basic and functional but I love the television it has a good selection of latest movies. The buffet breakfast was okey to start your day. They also have happy hour in the bar , the hotel was located in the quiet residential place.

I have roughed it many times in my travels. But the standard of accommodation in Australia is actually appalling in comparison to other countries. While I get that you cannot expect the likes of the Shangri-La or the Ritz in a budget hotel ... the least you can expect is a clean and comfortable room in which to spend the...

No facilities either at the hotel or close by, no restaurants bars, room service etc. a long way from the city. I made the mistake of looking under the bed piles of dust and lint old receipts paper, tablets / pills even. It's an ex formula 1 staff stated they are waiting on a budget from ibis to renovate. In...

Guy was nice at front desk, when we arrived and that's about it. Room was full of mould that was easily removable with even a finger wipe. Without a doubt the dirtiest room I've ever stayed in. I'd like to think it was just our room so I won't bag the place too much.

I was visiting Canberra on business and only stayed the night. I could book a room here with only a week's notice and it was very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly & helpful and the room was clean. However, the amenities were basic with a "modular" toilet and shower (without shower curtain) and separate sink located next to the...
