Ibis Budget Hotel Sydney Airport
Ranked #12 of 12 Hotels in Mascot
Reviewed 26 August 2012

No hassles with reservation - I arrived on the last flight from Brisbane and they were expecting me. Walking distance to the Domestic terminal. Bus to International terminal, tickets available at reception. It was cleanish but this could be improved. No frills but you wouldn't expect any for the price. Recommend only for overnight layover.

Hotel Formule 1 Sydney Airport is located only a short distance from the domestic air terminal. Nightly rates are priced at under $100 so for a cheap stay this location is quite adequate. Breakfast is available each morning for $9 but lunch and evening meals are only available off-site. Krispy Creme donuts are located next door as are McDonalds and KFC. While not the perfect restaurant options, for a family on a budget these alternatives are more than adequate.
The rooms each contain a queen-sized bed and overhead bunk bed. The rooms are not overly large. Bathroom facilities are minimal with a shower and basin.
Shuttle buses run from this location to all terminals at a cost of $6pp.
Office staff were most accommodating and were more than happy to answer any questions we had.

As the title suggests - not fancy, but convenient and secure - surprisingly quiet given how close to the main runways the hotel is located - didn't hear any aircraft noise.

The domestic airport is only a ten minute walk from this hotel. It is clean and comfortable and ideal for an overnight stay prior to a early flight. I wouldn't recommend a stay any longer than two nights as the rooms are quite small.

If you don't want to pay top dollar for food at the airport, there is a Krispy Kreme Donuts, McDonalds & KFC next door to the hotel. The hotel also does a all you can eat breakfast for $9, although it is quite basic (cereal, toast, fruit and OJ).

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the aiport runway!

This is a crash pad close to the airport. Should not get two star rating in Western world. Rooms meet minimum standards - barely. They actually resemble jail cells. Access to airport is good but should be used only for one night between flights.

KFC and McDonald's are very close.

Did get info from the GM about going into downtown Sydney. It was wrong
