“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

This is a very good property, well located just around the corner from Swanston St, 5 mins easy walk from Melbourne Central and 15-20 mins from the Town Hall.
Overall, the property has a fresh and lively feel to it
I was given a 1 br apartment which was great value for money - plenty of space, very comfortable, well appointed, well maintained.
The bed and pillows were both great bed, and the room was quiet also, so I got some good sleep (not often the case in a city hotel).
The restaurant was undergoing renovation, but the alternative setup in a function room was just fine, and plenty of guests were using it.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I ended up here because I had to make a late booking - I commonly stay at the Swanston Grand Mercure - but I was certainly not disappointed in any way to have been at the Ibis.
All in all, a very satisfying experience which was great value for money.
Highly recommended in its class

Room Tip: Check out the 1 br apartments for value

We had two rooms on the fifth floor towards the back of the hotel, it was very quiet. The location was great as well, very close to the markets.
However, the rooms were quite small and the shower was a disappointment. Very low water-pressure and the way it was mounted to the wall, you had to press yourself against the wall to use it.
The most irritating thing was their television. As usual in hotels: poorly tuned, the image is stretched to fit the screen and they want $15 to watch a movie. Of course there is no dvd player or usb plug so you have no alternative than to watch their over priced movies. I don't understand why hotels do this., If their movies were cheaper, I would consider it, but for now, I'll stick with my laptop.

I stayed at the ibis recently and was surprised how good it was for the price I would not have selected this brand but it was booked for me by the office and I must say it is well positioned to restaurants and Queen Vic markets.
Well worth looking at.

Placed only 200 yards from Melbourne's famous VIC market & round the corner from Swanston Streets cafes & restaurants this is a very handy little hotel, it is up to the normal Accor Ibis standards but has a slightly more comfy feel to it than most & considering it's in the middle of town it's really quiet. The rooms are clean & well furnished & there is a small bar & restaurant in the basement.

On the downside I would not really recommend the restaurant for either dinner or breakfast, and hey there are all those others around you, go for a short walk & they charge for using a credit card for your stay; hey Accor that's not on, and only in Australia, say no to the banks.

Room Tip: Try for an upgrade to an apartment with a separate bedroom. if you have an Accor card you will proba...
