Only a ten minute walk from the main airport terminal. Compact room but clean comfortable and great for a good nights sleep. I got in after midnight but the hotel reception was still open and I was greeted with a smile and processed without any hassles or delays.

I had a 6am check in at the airport .So I chose Ibis as it was close at hand and after all it was only for 1 night. I got the airport bus out to the airport and found the hotel easy enough and only a 10 minute walk. The room is very small and the shower very small. But... More

Very small, can barely walk past the bed to the other side of the room. Way overpriced, would never stay here again for this price. Bathroom was not cleaned, a lot of hair and scum. Receptionist was very nice and helpful.

We rocked up late last night to be told that our Agoda booking hadn't been entered into the hotels own system. Somehow this was our fault?! We were told that we were extremely lucky that there was someone there who could check us in - again, the inference was that we - the customers- should be thankful for paying for... More

Was unexpectedly stuck in Melbourne for a night with an early flight out next morning. Myself and my mother. It's an Ibis Budget so it was cramped of course. The combined bathroom/toilet (which is in a corner pod that closes off from the rest of the small room) gets water just about everywhere in the pod, so your towel also... More

Coming from the Yarra Valley in Melbourne's Outer East and with an early morning flight, we decided to travel the night before and stay at Ibis Tullamarine. Typical Ibis configuration, bed very comfortable and just a few minutes drive to airport parking in the morning.

We stayed here the night before catching an early flight. Living in the country staying at ibis certainly made the trip much easier. The rooms weren't large but big enough and for one night it really didn't matter. Room was comfortable and clean and very convenient. For us was good in price compared to others. I left the car there... More

Good atmosphere with friendly staff. The rooms are small but fine for an overnight stay. Due for a renovation perhaps but everything was clean and functional and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was excellent for the price.

Firstly one must remember that this is a budget style hotel and therefore I have rated on this basis. For my requirements of spending a night near the airport because I had to get up early it was perfect. I couldn't hear the aircraft the noisiest were the people that came into the hotel late at night and had no... More
