I really enjoyed being here because the staff are so friendly and genuinely helpful!. Thanks everyone. I would recommend this place for its convenient location to Melbourne Uni, and Monash Uni. Stayed 4 nights -s quiet enough to work on my laptop, any gripes I had were quickly sorted.I was given a quieter room when I asked for it ( poolside) They make great coffee and have a sandwich bar as well as a restaurant. No 19 Tram right out the front that goes straight to Flinders station so if you have kids you can visit the aquarium etc easily (8 minutes on tram to Flinders) 5 minutes walk to the zoo ( just around the corner. Hotel Pool is actually as large as photos make it look with a nice little gym and spa. 5 minute taxi ride to Lygon street restaurants in Carlton ( fed the kids pasta) - hey- and the Melba Hall is down the road and so is the Union Theatre! (4 minutes on tram) I will certainly stay here again. For a single traveller, especially, this place is an excellent balance of value, cleanliness, safety and good location. Brunswick 4 minutes by tram going north. Older person- restricted mobility bathroom on ground floor such a nice touch too. Well Done!
Ground flr overlooking pool seems quietest; reception side balconies would benefit from clear scree...

Dear Rosie J,

Thank you for taking the time to review Vibe Hotel Carlton we appreciate your time and feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that the team dealt with any issues immediately and with a smile. We try to ensure that all of our guests requests and needs are met. The hotel does work very closely with Melbourne and Monash Universities for all of the academic needs.
Our location be it not in the City Centre is still very close with a short tram ride and just a stones throw from Lygon Street & Sydney Road dining and the Melbourne Zoo which is great for families. We try to ensure that all of our guests feel welcome and safe whilst in the hotel and are happy that you felt both.
Again thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and we hope to welcome you back to Vibe Hotel Carlton next time you visit Melbourne.
