Comfy bed!

One of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in! The rooms are tiny, particulalry the bathroom, but adequate if you are only using it as a place to sleep - you wouldn't want to spend too much time in it otherwise

Handy location

I was upgraded to the 10th floor with stunning views over the harbour. This truly was the highlight of my stay at Ibis with a free fireworks display on Saturday night to boot. I was very well looked after by all the helpful staff on reception who assisted me with checking in, and directions on local art galleries. Great in-house breakfast too. My room was lovely and clean and tidy. Thanks for a great stay, I will be back.

Darling Harbour has a lot of cheaper shops now, but the centre of Sydney is still a handy 5 - 10 minute walk.

Wonderful stay

We only stayed one night at the Ibis so that we could see Strictly Ballroom. The room was great and the view over Darling Harbour was magnificent. Really value for money.

3 DAY BREAK

Ideal location overlooking Darling Harbour .Readily accessible by light rail from Central Station following arrival at Sydney Airport Excellent view of the VIVID fireworks display and light show from our room window. Prompt service at check in/checkout and the staff were courteous in the breakfast area each morning. The selection of food was fresh, hot and the reasonably comprehensive.

Will not book this hotel again as the windows facing the harbour were so dirty, we could not enjoy the view even though we paid extra.

Convenient & value

Location is convenient, just behind a shopping center which is fronting Darling Harbour. A bit far to walk to the city but you csn always get taxi if you want in front of the hotel. The staffs were nice and rooms were clean.

Great room standard, good service nothing to complain

Stayed here before the new years. It was a great clean room. Service was OK. Amenities were budget but OK. Room itself was nice with the loveliest bed ive stayed in a hotel. Windows however were dirty, but the overall room I was pleased. The location was on the outskirts of the city so a 15 minute walk over the harbour.

Pre Cruise excellence

We booked the Ibis for our pre cruise accommodation in October, 2013. We were looking for reasonable accommodation close to White Bay Cruise Terminal and Darling Harbour. Check in could not have gone any smoother and the room was more than adequate for our needs. We only had a short stroll to Darling Harbour for dinner. We also had a quiet drink in the bar before retiring. We had a full buffet breakfast in the morning which had ample choice from Continental to full breakfast. The Ibis was the perfect location, perfect price and only a short taxi ride to White Bay. Would highly recommend Ibis and actually staying there again before our next cruise in May, 2014
