“About as basic as it gets”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Stayed there for business. The location was okay - about 15-20 minutes walk from the venue. The room was as sparse and basic as it comes. Devoid of personality, the open wardrobe cheapens the room and my room plainly looked 'tired' - the muted room colours just make the place look washed out. Compared to where my colleague stayed for another $30/night, I was shocked at how much better his room was (which included a separate bedroom and balcony and MUCH better furniture and had a better location). The room's phone was faulty, but they were very good at attempting to fix, in the end, they put me in another room within half an hour - great service on that part. However, there was no room or hotel information guide in the room and given the comparison to the other hotel, left feeling very disappointed. The check-in was okay, but only okay - time taken to check in and the efficiency of the front-counter staff was slow. I will not stay here again as if I were here with the family for pleasure, we would all have been disappointed.

As we flew in from Perth and were leaving the next day on the Tilt Train, we found this Hotel was more than adequate for our overnight stay. Close to Roma Street Station, reasonable priced, clean. room was great with two queens size bed and breakfast the next morning was very nice. Have stayed here before on visits to Brisbane and will stay again.

This IBIS is well located, the room was cheap and the fittings all in great condition. I slept well in the bed and wasn't there for the view. The room was very large and everything worked as advertised and created no issues. I like it when something is done so well that you can't find anything to moan about. When travelling, the simple things like internet, a clean room and working TV remote, ease the hassle of being out of your own house. The Ibis Brisbane did all this.

Our stay at Ibis Brisbane was part of a mystery hotel voucher with full buffet breakfast which I purchased, we have previously stayed in several Ibis Hotels around the world and have never had such a roomy Ibis stay before. An added bonus was being able to check in early (just lucky) with a late check-out the following day as part of the mystery deal.

Generally speaking we have found Ibis hotel rooms to follow a design formula but not in Brisbane. Although we did not have a room with a view, we were very satisfied with the size of the room, mini-frig, tea/coffee making facilities, clean and well presented bathroom. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the room was very quiet (double insulated windows).

Front desk service was very pleasant and prompt, as well were all staff that we encountered. Breakfast the following day was included in the package which consisted of cereals, juices, fresh and tin fruits, yoghurt, breads and pastries(none by the time we arrived though), bacon, sausages, eggs of several styles, bakes beans etc. Self-serve tea/coffee. I cannot recommend the coffee, generally I can tolerant hotel coffee but not in this instance.

The location is ideal for all travelers, close to the Roma Street Transit Centre, a short walk away from the CBD, Kurilpa Bridge is the next block over with easy access to all the South Bank has to offer.

All in all a very pleasant stay at the Ibis Brisbane.
