The Ibis is a good hotel for about half the price or better than the others at the airport. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. If you are on the freeway side you will hear the traffic and you can hear people in the corridor as they come and leave at all times of the night. If...

OK, so you're tired, you've been traveling all day, you've another day to go and you're on a lay over until the next flight......now what do you want from a hotel? Clean sheets, comfy bed, hot shower and bloody close to the airport as possible perhaps tea/coffee makings and a TV? The Ibis has all of this, in buckets! The...

The location is definitely the best thing going for this place. It is a ten minute walk from Melbourne airport. I stayed here by myself on a layover. Check-in and check-out were simple enough. I was on the third floor. Taking the stairs was not that bad. The room is very small. The shower feels like a camp shower. I...

It was everything I needed for a short stop over, close to the airport (if you have a lot of luggage you can take one of the airport trollys with you the path lead all the way there). Dont expect super luxery , but the place is very clean and well fitted. The one draw back is not sure if...

This hotel offers great value. The showerhead is fabulous, beds are extremely comfortable with crisp white sheets and the towels are soft. The double glazing and thick blind means no noise or light from outside if you need a good night of sleep. The continental breakfast is good and there is even a small bar fridge in the room. Downsides...

Really enjoyed the stay. Very good helpful staff. The rooms compact but functional. Easy access to the airport and a quick meal nearby. My only area I think needs to be looked at was the air conditioner I let vent was full of fluff and restricted the airflow. Will defiantly stay again.

Main selling points are that it is walking distance to the terminals and free parking outside. Scenically it is squeezed between three main roads although well insulated from noise. We paid a slightly eye-watering £80 a night for a basic room which would have been £40 elsewhere, but it was next to terminals for any early flight

I booked in a hurry and did not read the reviews. big mistake. It's a pile of shipping containers and no lift. It's like a prison cell. Internet incredibly slow. No instruction when at the desk. Good location though, but average service and poor quality tiny rooms and hardly any space even to store your luggage. Linen quality not great.Even...
