We recently stayed at The Vibe Hotel for 5 nights and were quite happy with our stay. We usually stay right in the heart of the CBD, and pay a lot for our accommodation. This time we were attending a family wedding and needed to stay close to the venue as well as have a place to park our car.... More

We had a very comfortable king room overlooking Royal Parade and Princes Park. The hotel is in a great location. We had issues with the tv to begin with but one of the reception staff came upstairs to fix it within 2 minutes of the call.

An average vibe to this place at best... Was even tempted to give it a "poor" rating... This place is supposedly a 4-star property but I'd really only give it a 3-star rating. Biggest issues, service quality, cleanliness (room and spa), noise and overall design. On the positive side is location, value and the pool. Upon first impressions, the place... More

Great room with view over pool. Gym facilities looked good but I didn't use them. Pool looked very clean. Beds are great, rooms are huge. Bathroom a bit dated with shower over bath so no good if you can't clamber over the bath, good towels though. Well stocked Mini bar but expensive. On Site Parking at $10 a night. Restaurant... More

Used to be a great place , gone down hill since outsourced room service, staff need to inform on check in that room service is not longer from the Vibe and that you are charged to use the phone to order room service

The Vibe Hotel Carlton is a little over 4km from the CBD, easily accessible by the No 19 tram: there are two tram stops close by. It is opposite Princes Park, and close to Melbourne University. The room was very clean; the decor modern. I stayed in the newer portion, in a ground floor room facing Royal Parade. It was... More

I've stayed at a few of the Vibe properties over the years and I've found them to be exactly what I expected. A mid-priced hotel, which appeals to the younger audience. I stayed at this property over the spring racing carnival week, as it was relatively close to the action and the rates were good. The rooms in the hotel... More

We stayed here for one night and found it very clean and tidy! The reception staff are really nice and helpful especially as we arrived late. The room was spacious with all the necessary facilities. We didn't have breakfast as $17.50pp is a lot for light eaters. The gym and pool were appreciated to unwind. The downside was the noise... More

I loved the sunny and airy room overlooking the pool. I was recognised by the catering manager and she greeted me with warmth, even though I have not been there for a couple of years. I love this place because I always feel safe and welcome.
