No shampoo...hard to find entrance with construction

Nice hotel near the airport. Great value if you have an early flight.

The shuttle they use (ready to go) dropped us off at the wrong IBIS hotel, even though I confirmed the reservation and address with him before time. They then got us a taxi for an additional charge and told us it happened all the time (can you say scam)! The check in at the correct hotel was fast and efficient. Fast food is within easy walking distance. The rooms are tiny but the beds were ok. If you are staying overnight to fly out in the morning this place will work.

If you need a no frills place to crash to get over some serious sleep deprivation, this hotel will do. I arrived early to check in and paid AUD 20 extra to get a room before noon. No problem but the room was hardly worth what I paid and definitely not worth the extra. Bathroom sink is in the shower area and the shower wets the whole bathroom, even with a poorly placed curtain to try and stop it. The shower curtain rod is in the way if you’re taller then 6’3”. Bathroom walls were soiled with either soap splash or bodily fluids. Gross! Outlets failed to work regardless of keycard in slot at door or not. Had to rearrange the refrigerator to get a working outlet. This place makes Motel 6 in USA look five star. The front desk staff were helpful though! Wouldn’t recommend and won’t be staying here again upon return to SYD.

I'm surprised you don't charge for the toilet paper

This is a budget hotel. That is what you are getting. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower is annoying as water gets everywhere. This is not a full service hotel. If you need a one night stay with no frills this is a decent place.

good place to sleep off jet lag-but not really a place to stay for more than a night or two...

Decent option walking distance from the domestic terminal. I would recommend for the overnight layover. Once ready to leave make abundantly clear to the front desk that you are waiting for the transfer bus as the bus will not pull into the front of the hotel to pick up the passengers which caused me to almost miss the flight.

Shower and the toilet is together and very messy. No complementary wifi. The staff not so pleasant. No breakfast include it.

Felt like you are in a cruise ship cabin with neither the frills nor the basics of a comfortable accommodation. The only reason for staying here is the proximity to the airport or there is no other available room elsewhere. Oh and yes, there's KFC and McDonalds nearby.

Close to airport but had to pay $6 each for a shuttle bus. Smallest room I have ever stayed in and the combo shower / toilet, left a lot to be desired.

if you need a bed it is comfortable but extremely budget no extras like chairs or bed lights for reading or tables

This hotel is appropriately named. It is definitely a budget hotel....better than a youth hostel, but less than a hotel. No blankets, no closet, no bathroom floor mat, no hair dryer (unless you go down to the front desk and put down a $20 deposit for one), no lid on the toilet, tiny TV but a good cable system. However, it was clean and the staff was nice but extremely busy.

We should have listened to the reviews. The hotel is TERRIBLE! Do not stay here find an alternative. No WIFI, no bedspreads, no toiletries, noisy, dirty. UGH!

very plain,no fridge,just coat hangers coming out of the wall and bathroom tiny and having a shower gets whole of bathroom wet.no tissues to be had in the room.

The distance to the hotel was a great plus. Amenities were limited but that was no big issue. The beds weren't very comfortable. Overall, I would consider staying here again. Good value for money.

This hotel was close to the airport for a flight delay.. Barebones room with just enough to get you through the night. There is $6.00 charge each way to the airport via a shuttle service. McDonald's,KFC,Krispy Cream next door. 15 minute walk to Muscot rail station for a $8.00 round trip into the harbor area & the Rocks area.
