Nice Place - Near Victoria Market

from xenagurl
I booked one night with this hotel on wotif.com and the other directly with them. Pleasant clean place to stay, not right in the heart of CBD but very close. The first night they upgraded my room, but than switched it the next day, (not happy with that I must say) but the staff at the front desk were always helpful and pleasant.

The are 2 internet kiosks there, great for planning your next stop on your Australia adventure. Also two pay phones, when you don't want to rack up your mobile charges.

Stay as a woman by myself and felt perfectly comfortable.

Right down the block from Victoria Market, a definite plus, reminiscent of Bangkok's weekend market, except smaller.

big rooms!

I stayed at this hotel a little almost 3 years ago. I went through a group called people to people, student ambassidors, and really liked the hotel. It was clean and the rooms were nice. We had a corner room that had 2 bedrooms, living room, and a kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the pul out was average. the staff were great help, even though we were a group of teenage americans that had just come off a 16 hour plane ride, with little to no sleep. We had the greatest time at breakfast eating vegemite! Most of us didn't like it, but i grew to love. Overall this was a nice hotel with nice staff.

Good 3* hotel

from ACCK
We arrived at Melbourne on a public holiday and the transit from airport (by airbus) to the Ibis Melbourne took about 45 mins, with no jams on the highway whatsoever.

From outside, the hotel itself looks like a moden high-rise apartment block, and the lobby area does look a bit like a YMCA reception. There were paid Internet access point on the ground floor, and there were few floors with vending machines & washing machine room.

The good thing about this hotel is the cheerful staff at the receiption, very polite and helpful in giving out tips & directions to local attractions. The suite we were given were originally on a smoking floor, on protesting to the reception staff, we were given another room on top floor with a much better view, overlooking the Victoria market. The suite has a living room area and a ensuite bedroom, with two tvs as well as our own open planned, fully equipped kitchen with fridge and microwave.

There are trams stops right outside the hotel, which will take you to the CBD area in less than 10 mins. We walked to Flinder stn one late afternoon and it took us about 30 mins to get there.

There are some great deals from the ibis website, and we got our suite at a much discounted rate. Hotel Ibis Melbourne is a good clean 3* hotel, well worth to check it out for travellers with budget on their mind.

Good basic hotel, the best thing is the location

from 3071
The main drawcard for this hotel is its location - one block from the Victoria Markets, and three blocks from the start of the CBD shopping area. Tram routes operate on either side of the hotel at incredibly frequent intervals should you need to travel further towards Flinders Street, Southbank, St Kilda, Lygon Street etc. The City Circle tram and Melbourne Central Station are three blocks away.

Rooms are basic but very clean. No minibar is provided, with drinks and snacks available downstairs in the lobby (but just walk to Safeway or Big W a few blocks down to avoid paying the huge prices in the hotel). Bathroom is basic but again very clean, but bring shampoo with you because what the Ibis provides is a VERY small PACKET!

The rates online at the Accor/Hotel Ibis website are OK, however there are many other hotels which offer a few more features for the same price if you shop around - they aren't as central though.

No extras, but nice

from Teachntravel
We enjoyed our stay at the Ibis, thought it was a nice hotel, but very basic ie no shoe shine kit or mints on the pillow. It isn't intended to be a resort-just a place to sleep which is what we needed it for. It was very clean and modern and convienent to the Victoria Markets and downtown. My only complaint would be that we kept waking to the sounds of sirens-not really a fault of the hotel, but rather a consequence of location however a disturbance nontheless.

Good basic hotel

from JulieDew
We stayed at the Ibis, Therry Street, Melbourne for 4 nights at the beginning of March 2006. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was clean and tidy but there were no frills. We had just stayed at 2 Crowne Plazas so I had been spoilt. I knew it was in a different class when there was no concierge and we had to struggle in off the street with our luggage.
I had to ask for extra towels as there were just 2 small bath towels between the pair of us. We were in room 513 which is opposite the lift, maybe we have sensitive hearing or maybe it was something to do with the room number ending in 13 but the extractor fan in the bathroom was very loud and breezy making the bathroom like a wind tunnel, it was so loud we had to shut the bathroom door to sleep but we could still hear it as there was a 5cm gap at the bottom of the door. In addition to this noise there was other humming, vibrating noises which seemed loud in the dead of night which we could hear while we were in the room but we couldnt identify the source - Was it the large air conditioning vent in the corridor out side our room next to the lift? was it the coke vending machine near the lift? was it the laundry room which backed onto room 513? or was it the lifts themselves? - We complained - twice - but no improvement and we couldnt be bothered with changing rooms not that this option was offered so we ended up having 4 nights tossing and turning listening to the humming and vibrating. The icing on the cake was our last night at 1.30am we couldnt get back in our room after a night out. The door access card wouldnt work. We went down to reception and a guy fiddled with the door and couldnt open it even after plugging a hand held machine into it! Would we like to stay in another room he asked - No we wouldnt as all our belongings were in room 513 which wouldnt let us in! You have to laugh or you'd cry!
The good points - it is not a bad hotel just basic - we didnt eat in the hotel at all. Its in a good location next to the Vicoria Market which is great if you like markets and bargains and the food there is incredible. The tram stop is just round the corner to the hotel and the restaurants on the south bank are just a short taxi ride away, No 8 was a favourite with the gas fires blowing high into the sky every hour on the hour. I got a tram to St Kilda one day which was pleasant, but thank goodness some helpful local showed me how to use the serve yourself ticket maching on the tram. We ate out one evening at St Kilda, The Stoke House which was very good.
Loads of streets of shops within walking distance of the hotel also we got a tram to Bridge Road where the are so many shops including discount shops to keep you busy all day.
A walk along the Yarra River is also very pleasant.

Well, we love the Ibis

from me
We have stayed at this hotel several times during the past few years. It has changed over the years now being an Accor Hotel. Admittedly the service has also changed ie no mini bar not even a biscuit with your tea! BUT the rooms are spotlessly clean, linen is changed often, towels every day. For a budget price its good value. We recommend booking an apartment if you are in town for a few days as you have lots of room. This year we booked a 1 bedroom apartment and were upgraded to a 2 bedroom so we had loads of room to spread out. Restaurants are no problem as its a short walk to Lygon Street and a short tram ride to the city or a nice stroll if you're not too knackered from the Vic Market! We are in the 60+ bracket and like the fact that the hotel is safe and reasonably quiet especially now that the building work is all done. All in all we will keep on staying at the Ibis Therry Street as long as we are able.

Ok for the price

from shoppadownunder
I stayed here for work last week and having stayed at ibis hotels before they are all pretty much the same. The rooms are basic and small but if you dont want to spend alot on a room then its ok.

I think I would stay somewhere more central like the oakford gordon if I came to melbourne again as although the markets and tram were not far away everything else seemed to be a fair walk including anywhere to go for dinner

Under Construction - Please Come Back Later

from A TripAdvisor Member
Construction seemed to be a running theme during our stay. The restaurant had been gutted and was being redone, so simple meals were offered in one of the conference rooms (we passed). Our room was also looking out onto a construction site where work began at 7:00 am.

The room was a tad on the small side, though it was clean and the furnishings looked relatively new. There wasn't much in the way of amenities, not even a mini-bar. You had to buy snacks or drinks from vending machines at various points in the hotel.

The bathroom only had a shower stall, so you couldn't soak in a tub after a long day of walking around town.

The hotel was conveniently located, only a few minutes from the Queen Victoria Markets and about a five minute walk to the CBD and the free city circle tram.

you get what you pay for

from A TripAdvisor Member
My review of the Ibis World Square in Sydney is similar- if this is a 4-star hotel, then your average Best Western in the U.S. is a palace.
Rooms are cramped, dirty, beds are stiff and no tub. We got the Ibis as part of a Qantas vacation package for our honeymoon-do yourself a favor and spend the extra money for the luxury hotels as Melbourne is an awesome and beautiful town. Staff was friendly and the hotel is located close to the tram lines so that you can explore the nicer parts of Melbourne. The low rates for this hotel tend to suggest it is better suited for students or maybe those who are not accustomed to what we have in the U.S. Again, fortunately, there was so much to do in Melbourne that we didn't have to spend much time in the hotel.

Top Local Tips for Melbourne

Burnswick street Many upstart designer stores selling quirky homewares and accessories. Small restaruant there is a foodies heaven.

Indulgence at Hotel Windsor We had tickets to Phantom of the Opera in Melb and decided to do the Pre show dining at the Windsor Hotel (next door). Booked about 3 weeks ahead, and reminded that we we going to show. We sat down at 6:00pm and had dinner and a drink in a very relexed and indulgent way and were fininshed to attend show at 8:00pm (3A+2C).

Spring and the Great Ocean Rd Am told GOR is really packed in Summer. Beautiful in Spring.
