We stayed at the Vibe Hotel at Darwin Waterfront for 4 days. The location of the hotel, as mentioned in a lot of other reviews, is very good. You can reach the city center by foot in just a few minutes. The Waterfront precinct itself also offers various options for eating, drinking and shopping. Unfortunately we weren't as happy with...

Stayed at the Vibe for three nights. Check in easy, parking easy, great location on the waterfront. Hotel was quiet despite all the other attractions around it. Good value hotel with friendly staff, would come back here anytime.

Great location, quality and staff. Shame the aircon struggles so badly this time of year when you want it the most. I had to wheel my bed in to the aircon path and even then I woke up sweating, been this way for over 4 years now.

I stayed at Vibe for 2 nights the staff were very friendly and the room was great for my purpose. The Waterfront is very convenient to the city and the views from my room at day break were fantastic. I only ate breakfast at the hotel and again it was good and fresh. I would recommend the Vibe to others.

airconditioning was too cold and could not readjust - no blanket in room to add to bed and the bed was too soft. Staff were excellent and apart from the above the rooms were great with an excellent location on the waterfront - close to the CBD and Stokes Hill Wharf

Unfortunately items that were included in my booking like a complimentary bottle of wine and half price breakfast were not provided during my stay, despite requesting it from reception on two occasions. It wasn't denied, it was simply never delivered or the failure acknowledged.

The hotel's position is lovely - a short 10 minute walk into town, on the waterfront opposite the wave pool and surrounded by a myriad of shops and eateries. If you drive here there is a $10 a day parking fee, its in a multi story public car park so no added safety, and through tour Darwin there are fees... More

Checking in was a nightmare. We had to wait 40 minutes in reception and email our reservation to prove our booking, whilst the shift manager stayed in the back office and didn't communicate with us directly regarding resolution of the issue except for about 1 minute. Instead he had a staff member who appeared new try to deal with us.... More
