For this particular trip this hotel was extremely well located. Rowena was professional checking me in and assisting me with some small queries I had. My room was comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel.

tidy and clean - great if you just need a place to stay overnight close to the city. Cab ride to the city is about $20 one way so not too bad. Staff are very nice and friendly. Some minor maintenance issues but overall no problems and was a bargain (at the right time) compare to other places.

The location was excellent - easy reach to city and the trendy area of Brunswick. Transport into the city by the No. 19 tram was first class. It was also a pleasant walk into the city via the Victoria Street markets.

Stayed at the Vibe Hotel, Royal Parade whilst on a business trip to Melbourne. Refurbished hotel with a very comfortable king sized bed and plenty of room with a balcony overlooking the pool. Good location if you do not wish to stay in the city and a good place for an early departure from Melbourne to drive toward Sydney or... More

Very neat clean, quiet room. Friendly staff. We will stay again but would have been a good idea to let patrons know of the $50 charge for the extras you might use. Close to City, shops,Carlton FC, RCH

Having stayed here numerous times before it was once again the quiet efficiency that made my stay pleasant - at a very good rate. For business travel this is a very easy going place, overall quiet and good sized rooms.

Good location and cheap prices makes this a good hotel to consider. Outside of main building rooms are a bit noisy, no dinner available from hotel directly let's this place down a lot. Overall a pretty good place to stay

I have stayed at the vibe twice now, both times it was a wonderful experience. Just out of the city so its less noisy and still close enough for convenience. Staff are amazing as well. Well done vibe!

very warm, comfortable, clean and quiet, except for the water glasses in the bathroom that needed a good scrub. Don't like being charged $10 for parking, but it was off the street and close to the hotel (100m). Did not appreciate being charged $50 on my credit card (charged authorized NOT pending as reception stated) at check-in for any possible... More
