Filthy noisy place that we will never grace with our presence again. Dirty sheets, unmade bed on arrival, itchy sleep ( bed bugs, fleas, I don't know, maybe in my head because of the filth) the noise during the night is mainly due to foreign guests having no respect of anybody else and having phone calls in the hall ways whenever the time of night. Water running all night fom inside of the walls, I don't know why. It was a terrible nights sleep for me and my family. The best thing about the hole experience was leaving. What a relief. ENJOY YOUR STAY IF YOU ARE UNLUCKY ENOUGH TO BE STAYING HERE!!!!!!!! How this place has a Review of 3 1/2 star on trip advisor is quite astonishing.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room!!!

The Ibis Sydney Airport (formerly the Formule 1) used to cost $119 a night for an absolutely basic clean-but-decent you-know-what-you're-getting room. Now, a year later, as the Ibis, it costs $149 for exactly the same product. Given its proximity to the airport (a 10-minute walk or a $10taxi ride-correct) it is always full of budget- minded travellers. But is such a price-hike justified? Of course not. The standard of accommodation is exactly the same - basic and efficient but not in any way luxurious or even especially comfortable (no one will willingly sleep in at this Ibis). Not impressed, Ibis.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lifts - the sound insulation is poor and you can hear them pinging as t...

Stayed last night in a double room. The bed was comfortable and clean. Towels, sheets and dooner were clean and the air con worked. It is only a short walk (10 minutes max.) to the domestic terminals.
Continental breakfast was $9.00pp and really wasn't worth it. Save your money and buy your breakfast at the airport or Mascot shops. Value or money was ok but not great. Would I stay here again? Probably.

I stayed at this property (formerly the Formule 1) overnight on return from Abu Dhabi on April 3rd. Having stayed there once before, I knew what to expect and what I would get for my $119.

The hotel has changed hands and brand appearance, and I noted that the welcome and check-in was well organised, swift, and I was in my room barely 5 minutes after approaching the desk. The bed - a queen - was more comfortable than I recall from before and bed linen was clean and crisp. The room is quite basic, but there is room to work on a bench-table. an adequate office chair, and effective air conditioning as Sydney weather, that night, was typically humid and "heavy."

The bathroom too is basic but everything works, the shower has plenty of hot water, and there are no bathroom items provided beyond soap. But for travellers who tend to carry all their own supplies anyway, as if on safari, this certainly wasn't a problem.

After being up all day and then a 13-hour flight, I was hungry and wandered around the corner to the Big M, for a much needed snack. Back in the room, and watching excellent television (a wall-mounted flat screen), it was time to sleep off the trip's toll. The room was quiet, no noise from the surrounding airport activities nor from other guests, and so a quiet night was welcome.

This hotel is definitely a 3-star basic property. But ... it is affordable, it is less than 12 minutes walk from the domestic terminal (the blurb seemed to suggest 8 minutes but maybe my age caught up), it is comfortable and supplied with nearby food outlets (Big M, KFC and KK donuts), and also run efficiently. I didn't expect more and though a little down-market from what I usually stay in even at Sydney airport, the proximity and avoiding having to wait for a shuttlebus, are all big pluses for me. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor - ground floor rooms can be noisy at times.

Stayed at this hotel for the second time for a stopover between flights. The location is great. There is a shuttle service from both international and domestic for which there is a charge. This is a budget level of the Ibis brand and that is certainly what you get. Very, very basic. Access to a kettle and some complimentary tea and coffee in the reception area would be a nice kindness to tired out travelers. Staff were friendly and there are some fast food outlets just nearby.
