The room was lovely, but we had some issues with the hot water. The breakfast was not great. Staff were polite and willing to help. Would stay again. Location is great and overall the feeling of the venue of pretty good.

We stayed here for 5 nights for a business/leisure trip. I am the type of traveler who doesn't seek fancy accommodations (usually prefer boutique places), and prioritize cleanliness, location, and value. I stayed at another, much larger and nicer hotel in St. Kilda later on during this trip, but I think I would stay at Vibe again based on location... More

My wife and i stayed on a busy weekend in Melbourne. The vibe has a good gym and pool area. Didn't have breakfast but looked good and at a reasonable price. Room was clean and functional, very large bed was handy as well. Staff very friendly. However, the walls are thin and could hear revellers coming in at all times... More

Ive now stayed here 6 times and it never seems to disappoint! Great room! great service, location suits me to a tee! Short tram ride on the #19 to the city, its a short taxi ride to flemington race course, I just cant fault the place! Also, its across the road from the best AFL club in Victoria, Carlton! Thanks...

I have stayed numerous times at this hotel since time it was the Laureate then Vibe. With a rental car parking is easy & close to both city & airport & trendy Carlton & fitzroy/Collingwood. Staff always engaging & polite and room warm & comfy for winter . Will happily stay again as room rates reasonable for the area.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and clean. The location is excellent - easy to get around by tram and by foot, and lovely to be so close to the park across the road. I would definitely stay there again.

This was not my first stay at the vibe Carlton. I chose to stay here again due to convenience and I required a quiet stay as I was in Melbourne for business. Previously I had been allocated a room off the main corridors in the hotel with a private balcony. I found this stay enjoyable and hence why I returned.... More

I stayed here because I had training in close proximity. It was a really pleasant stay. The rooms were clean and attractive and the bed was very comfortable. I used the gym which was adequate for my needs. There was a tram to the city right out the front.

Large rooms, nice pool and gym facilities. Spacious and modern. Good location and surprisingly quiet despite being on the main road. Stayed for business and had a good night sleep and plenty of room to spread out and get my work done after the day was over.
