Staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the morning to request a place to leave our bags and we were able to check in to our room which was fantastic. One of the days we were there was a public holiday and reception staff were very informative as to what was open and when, particularly in regards to our needs for family oriented activities.
Dear arb300, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so delightful to hear that you had a wonderful stay in our hotel. We are glad to see that our staff gave you some helpful information during your stay. We will keep doing the way we did before and improve ourselves in the meantime. Kind regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
I couldn't believe the price I paid for this place! I realise you are currently upgrading the hotel but what was presented to me was worth around $10 compared to the $189 I paid. This is more than the ATO's travel allowance I'm allowed to claim!!!!!
Dear Samantha L, Thank you for your review. As for the special event dates or busy weekends, our hotel sell location more than the hotel rooms. But we could guarantee that the $189 is not our everyday rate. We recommend you to avoid these special days to receive the cheapest option from our hotel. Thank you again for choosing ibis Hotel. Sincerely, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
This hotel was under renovation and suffered accordingly. Room was tired and squeezy. Bathroom was equally so with no provision for storage of personal toiletries. Aircon was noisy and ineffective and bed was just so-so.
Dear DaFi11, Thank you so much for leaving your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your time in our hotel. We are under construction right now, but it usually happens during day time, so it would not affect most activities for our guests. During our renovation, we will definitely reinforce our noise cancellation system. Thank you again for choosing ibis hotel. Regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
Room is spacious, clean and comes with fridge n tea- service. Train station and tram stops are just down the road. Great cafes can be found close by. Only downside is the noise from the traffic in the early hours of the morning.
Dear aliceSG50, Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed most of your time in our hotel. As we are located in the city of Melbourne, it is quite busy in the morning, so the urban noise could not really be avoided. But during our renovation, we will take place some sound proof systems in the room to keep this kind of noise out so that you could enjoy even more in our hotel in the future. Thank you again for staying with ibis hotel. regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
This hotel offers good facilities, good service and if you get breakfast included it is great. If you require parking there is some not too far away, but the access is not easy. Make sure you get the details before trying to find it. There are great restaurants nearby, I found there were some great ones nearby within one block. A steak for $15 during the week and other specials. The Southern Cross station is close by.
Dear Leemac271, Thank you so much for leaving your comment in our hotel. We are delightful to hear that you had a good time in our hotel. I will share your comment with our staff so that we could improve ourselves even more in the future. Thank you again for your lovely review. Sincerely, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
good location, nice 3-bed room with reasonable price. The customer service provided by experienced staff. The breakfast is simple and good enough for starting the trip everyday. The only thing which is not proper for travellers is the stairs at the main entrance.
Dear Iamma77, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delightful to hear that you enjoyed most of your time in our hotel. For the front entrance, we are trying our best to make it easier to enter. As a heritage building, it is very difficult to change its original type. But we will not give up on this as it will bring more convenient to our hotel guests. Please give us a little more time to make it happen. Sincerely, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
We stayed here for a week recently and found it adequate for our purpose. The room was large with a good sized ensuite. The room also had tea & coffee supplies and iron & a fridge with a couple of easy chairs & a coffee table. The hotel has a good guest laundry, Wi Fi is free to Accor members & there is a feee news paper every day, there is a Computer room with a printer, lifts to all floors. The restauranT serves a good basic breakfast and there is a lovely French restaurant next door .The hotel is very close to numerous cafes & restaurants within walking distance and it is close to the free tram system . The front of house and restaurant staff were very nice and obliging. Our only complaint was the sub standard servicing of our room each day but I trust management will address those concerns. we would consider staying here again when next in Melbourne.
Dear gypsy039, Thank you so much for taking your time to write your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoy most of your time in our hotel. About room service, we will definitely have a chat with housekeeping department about how we could improve our quality of service. We are very appreciated your comment. Thank you again for sharing your experience with us. Regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
Good value for money, no lamp by bed or at desk, so bright light compulsory. Checkout time extended to 1130, but room key failed, so had to stand in queue to get back into room. Otherwise good. Will stay there again.
Dear karl737, Thank you so much for taking your time to review our hotel. We are slowly to put more facilities in the rooms. We will definitely finish this after our renovation. As for the room key issue. The standard check out time is 10am, after that the key will deactivated. For what you could do simply come to our reception we will cut a one time key for you to let you go in the room to grad your stuff. Thank you again for choosing ibis Hotel. Kind regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
Good location. Close to Southern Cross Station. Friendly staff. But, the room was pretty small relatively. The cleanliness of maschester could be improved. The bed was not that comfy. If the price was under 100 a day, it is still acceptable. Otherwise, I would like pay more to stay with another hotel.
Dear Linchuan M, Thank you so much for leaving your comment. We are improving our service in this hotel, especially the housekeeping part. We are doing better than before. Some rooms' mattresses have been changed but we need to take one step at a time as we still have many other issues to take care of this hotel. As for the price of our hotel, I could guarantee that we have the lowest price in the same level of hotels in Melbourne city area. Even when it is over $100 we are still the lowest. Thank you again for booking with ibis Hotel. Kind regards, ibis Styles Kingsgate Hotel Team
