Ideal for a stopover in Sydney... probably not suitable for more than one night stay as rooms are small. As a stopover it is perfect, Check-in and Check-out were incredibly quick. They have food options 24/7. Note, you can easily walk to the hotel from Sydney Domestic Airport (5-7 min). It's a right turn out of the Virgin terminal, walk...

Every backpacker has the same problem: either you have a bad night at the airport or you pay too much for just a bed and a roof. This time we chose for the expensive bed. It is the cheapest hotel near the airport but still ridiculouly expensive. You only get a bed, a shower and a window for 99$ a...

As you can see it says budget so it is nothing special here. But ok for a stopover. Would have liked free internet access in the room but you can't get everything. You have some fast food places just around the corner and if you feel like a little walk (20 min) you will get to a little area with...

I was flying from Auckland to Sydney and a mix up with my flight timings necessitated a stay at Ibis budget for a night. Its a no frills hotel and having stayed in other Ibis properties, this one would be very basic. Check In was pretty fast and the front desk staff communicative. Stay here if you are looking to...

I often have early morning flights and so need to stay at a motel close to the airport as I live in Nowra. I stayed once and only once at the Formula 1. The service was poor, the rooms were tired and the atmosphere is well...um....lacking. There is more atmosphere in a black hole. At 2am I requested a new...

Having stayed in numerous Ibis hotels in the UK we took the chance this one would be up to at least somewhere near what i would rate as standard/basic overnight stopover accommodation. Boy, were we wrong! what a dump! The room was basic ..ok no problems there, we didn't expect much but the fact we could not open the torn...

Very poor communication between staff members. Poor service. Tiny rooms. It it's clean but the cockroach running across the foyer when we entered suggested it may not be behind the scenes. You definitely get what you pay for. We walked around the corner to the other ibis for food.... they had a very nice bar and restaurant.

Stayed here for convenience of being near the hotel, which was within walking distance. But as the name says "Budget", that is what you get. A bed, tv, alarm clock and clean towels for the bathroom! that's it! The room suited us for an overnight sleep. Don't expect much more than that! There are a few take-away stores within walking...

This is ideal place to rest if you have six hours between flights in Sydney. The rooms are the standard Ibis rooms, the beds are comfortable, and the service is adequate. Food is provided. Regular shuttle to the terminals. Wifi is extra. More restful than sitting in the airport.
