8.0.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Room was great. No frills. And location was good. Very near to King's Cross station. Nice food in the vicinity too. Generally a good stay. I tend to leave the room later and feel like im being chased out by housekeeping. When i told the lady I'll be leaving in an hour, she told me ten minutes, because she'll clean the next room first. Oh well, forces me out of the room earlier. Also i didnt like that the water pressure becomes really small when you turn the shower to high heat. But all in all, I'll still recommend this place because the bits that i dont like are just so minor.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Reasonable price

    Near train station King Cross but not so near to city centre. Take 2 more stations to Bondi Junction you can get cheap food and good shopping. Don't need to go to city centre. Hotel breakfast buy 1 get 1 free. Quite basic enough to feel you tummy. Hotel room not so big about 15sqm but you have everything. Mini fridge, hair dryer, luggage rack, coffee and tea. Take the train from airport and get off at Town Hall to change to T4 to King Cross. More troublesome if you get off at central cos a lot of walking and stairs Overall good place to stay for that price

    Good comfortable budget stay

    The hotel room is good for budget stay. The rooms are small but has everything needed during the stay. The staff was helpful and courteous, though the room didn't have a phone, if anything is needed you have to go down to the front desk to ask for it yourself.

    I like the room is quiet and clean. That room have television, refrigerator, kettle, hair dryer, and toiletries. This Ibis hotel price is cheaper compared to other hotels. I didn't like the aircond sounds electric current and the trash can in the toilet that smells cigarettes.
