“A bit kitch and the Savoy? Not quite.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a rather garish hotel with an elegant but faux early twentieth century décor in the lobby and public areas.
My actual hotel room seemed too narrow for the large, heavy furniture
A clean room with good fluffy towels and quick room service. Had light meal, but salad was not freshly made and poor for the price.
The problem when you do a boutique hotel, try to be fashionable they look pretty average when the fashion moves on.
Location is near station where my work's situated, so for work it was handy. I would recommend going to stay at a hotel closer up town though as near station's never a very quiet, elegant locale.
There are very close nearby, good restaurants though, We had wonderful Japanese at Hanabishi and Korean at Hwaro is best I've had in Australia.
They also take $100 on the credit card which is kept for a few days after you leave, hmm. Not a good feeling.
On the environment front, they, like all places, like you to reuse yr towels but also have a master switch which turns off the tv and lights which is a win win for hotel's bottom line and environment. I think soap dispensers in rooms etc would be another thing would improve their green image if they are serious. No window openings at all.
Friendly and really helpful but unobtrusive staff,thanx! All 'newish' Australians so not slack on the service front like many of us and a real asset to the hotel.
An interesting place to stay as was a unique place.

Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay at the Vibe Savoy Hotel. We will take on your comments regarding the hotels fixtures and furniture. We do not consider ourselves a boutique hotel, and more a good 4.5 star hotel that is conveniently located, offers clean rooms, great service and consistently strives to implement sustainability plans towards the environment. The credit card authorisation on your credit card is part of the check in process & I apologise if this was not communicated to you on your arrival.
Once again thank you for your feedback, and we look forward to being able to accommodate you when next in Melbourne.
Kind Regards
Brett Walker

We had a great time at this, recently, renovated hotel. Very handily located beside the Southern Cross rail station (and the airport shuttle). The one thing that annoyed us was the noise from the station during the early hours of the morning.

Hotel is very nice. It provides all services you as well. Breakfast buffet is not good enough. And beds are not very comfortable. Hotel TV does not cover enough channels. Exclude these three things everything is fine.

We arrived midday Friday and were not expecting to be able to access our room, just wanted to drop our luggage. Staff were very helpful, giving us detailed instructions on how to get to the Melbourne Museum, though in the end we used the bikes from the Melbourne Bike Share scheme located just across the road.
Proximity to Southern Cross Station was a bonus, as we felt like we had good connections to all the parts of the city we wanted to visit.
The room was basic but clean and modern. We didn't make use of the bar or restaurant, but instead spent all of our waking hours exploring the city so from our point of view the best thing about the hotel was its location and the staff, who were all helpful, friendly and professional.

I stayed here for a work trip. Its a very handy location, right near southern cross location.
The rooms very very pretty! not very large but very stylish and comfortable. Nice and clean bathroom facilities and a very comfortable bed and bedding. I had no problem with noise and all i would say is breakfast is confusing, i couldnt find the coffee machine and when i asked the guy couldnt be bothered to help which was a shame. I would be happy to stay here again.

Really easy to get here using the airport sky bus and then just a short walk to the hotel. It's within walking distance to Flinders Square, the harbor, city shopping, Queen Victoria Market, and bus stop for the free city tour bus. We stayed 4 nights in a small but quiet room that met all our needs. After a full day of touring, we were too tired to go back out for dinner, so took advantage of the happy hour appetizers one night and ordered a pizza from the bar another night. We also bought fruit and snacks at the little grocery store half a block away. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful in arranging a wine tour for us.
