“Awful experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Ibis Sydney World Square recently and was disappointed with our experience. The carpet in the room feels dirty and the hotel didn't provide slippers. The air con unit very dusty and making vibrating noise which resulted in neither of us had any sleep. The housekeeper in the morning was very loud. We can hear banging noise and loud vacuuming noise from the next room. The front office staffs were giving bad vibe as they were not friendly at all. The key cards constantly stopped working. But the worst is the level of hygiene in the bathroom especially the towels. The towel had a rotten smell and caused our body to be smelly. We ended up check-out 1 day early because we didn't feel comfortable at all. We understand Ibis is a budget hotel but surely they can't be this awful. The only good thing is the location of the hotel but everything else is very awful.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

It is always disapointing to read a review, which could have been turned around during your stay.

As a 3.5 star hotel we do not have slippers in the room, however on request we do have them avaliable for our guest. Please always ask for assistance as we are hear to ensure you have a great stay and will want to return.

We hope you will give us another opportunity again.

I stayed here for three nights during early May. I was out of the hotel most of the time and never really enjoyed the facilities (except the gym) but it was comfy. The service at reception was also very good - although I wished they had told me earlier about the deposit I had to pay. I was only carrying a very limited amount of cash but the nice lady at reception told me I could pay it later, which I did.

The hotel is situated near Asian shops and restaurants - which offer pretty decent food - and is also a short walk away from Darling Harbour. It's also possible to do a bit of shopping around the area. And the Museum/Central train station isn't far as well.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. Wish I could've stayed longer!
