The Ibis Budget provides the best value accommodation within walking distance of the airport. Sure, the room is basic but it was comfortable enough...especially when you really only need it for the bed and shower. The walk took around 10 minutes to get to terminal 4....other hotels are a bit closer. It would have been an ordinary walk if it...

My husband, son, parents, and I stayed the night before our outbound flights and occupied two rooms. Our rooms were not right next to each other, but were both on the ground floor (FYI - there are no elevators!). Our room (#131) had a bunk and was very small, but clean. Noise: I was pleasantly surprised that I could not...

This is the perfect spot for a quick stop Over for an early flight the next day! The man behind the desk was super helpful and friendly! The room was clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable! The aircon works well, you just need to adjust it to ensure that the air is coming out in your direction! I...

Good location,average service and poor quality rooms.Rooms are very tiny and hardly any space even to store your auggage.Linen quality not great.Even if this is a budget hotel it's not worth for the price we paid.

For $139 aud I don't expect miracles. I can accept a tiny room with just the basics. We just wanted a room with little fanfare at a reasonable price to put our heads down after a late flight into Tullamarine. I don't think that it's too much to expect a little relief from a hot, muggy night. A heat pump...

Just what we needed and comfortable for one night. Could walk over to airport for dinner and to catch the plane early in the morning. Left our car at jet port and came over from the airport. Happy to stay there for a night.

A short walk from the airport terminal, with good sign posting. a a friendly greeting at reception awaited us. The very compact room was spotless. A good night's sleep was had in the very comfortable beds. Excellent value.

We stayed one night after a late arrival from Perth on our way to Geelong. It was clean, comfortable for a short stay, walking distance from the airport and relatively well priced. It's behind Maccas (where the restaurant closes at midnight) and BP service station (where we ended up for a surprisingly Ok sandwich to beat late night munchies). We...

This was my second visit to the Ibis at Melbourne. The rooms are spotless, the beds are comfortable with snowy white bedding. They have tea and coffee in the rooms and the breakfast is good value. Very friendly staff too.

Lets talk about the Ibis Budget Melbourne Airport. If you just need a stopover good alternative accommodation to the highly priced airport , or away from airport precinct accommodation. Rooms are clean if not a little cramped, usual facilities fridge, coffee and tea. Easy walk to both terminals. Bit noisy as you have people coming and going all night, and...

“Down stairs if you can - no lift”

“Rear view rooms are more private than car park view.”
  • Room with view of A/C, sink & window.
  • Room with view of coffee bar & TV.
  • All in one bathroom.
  • Ground floor view to airport highway. Silent as can be, blissful indeed.
