We stayed here for one night in NOV. The rooms are not cheap and i subscribe to the theory that you should get what you pay for..?? !!
Just dont go to the IBIS with high hopes... Its starting to show its age and is just a litttle tired looking now..
We arrived at 4pm and had to endure walking up the main entry ramp through a haze of ciggarette smoke ! People smoking at the entrance !! WHAT THE..? ((It was just like walking around the Melb CBD on a weekday having to endure those peanuts who come down from their high - rise office towers and gather just outside the front doors all smoking in a posse !!)) *Yuk
Anyway...The check in was quick but i was informed that the car-park was full and i needed to park my car a block away !! Great! So off i went to the grotty-est carpark in Melbourne.
The room was clean and fine. * please note the windows do not open in any way.
We didnt use the other facillieties except for the bar on the LG floor. I felt uncomfortable in my suit so we left. (you get my drift)
This hotel was full of sporting groups, dancing troups, a scout group from Geelong and other parties who obviously look for a cheap group rate.
Would i go back to this IBIS - probably not.
