My second stay at Ibis Little Bourke, this basic, but adequate, hotel, located ultra close to Southern Cross Station and within walking distance of all the best conference venues ;) (read about my first stay here)
I managed not to injure myself in the shower this time. The air con was quieter, and the towels better. I did pay more ($103 per night, this time through wotif, last time was through Qantas, but it WAS school holidays and a weekend this time).
They have a luggage storage area which we used, but don’t leave valuable there, because I kinda just walked in to get my bag and could have left with anything. You can pay for a locker there, or at the station, if you need. I just carried my zenbook around for the day ;)
Loved the 11am checkout, and our room was available before lunch on the day we got there :) I’m sure I’ll stay there again!
Don’t forget to enter to win an awesome Shanalogic necklace!
I understand the rack rate to be closer to $120 – I probably wouldn’t have paid that online having not seen it before, but it worked out well for the $65 (I never pay full price for my hotels!) but this little twin room suited us for our stay. And it was walking distance (past the strip clubs of King Street!) to the Crown conference venue/casino. (more…)
