“Good location but small rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

It was walking distance to the Docklands and the city center so it made for a good central location. The rooms are small but clean. They also don't offer free wifi in the room except for a free 30 minutes in the lobby. This place was decent if you're only there to sleep and shower.

This is a nice hotel in the city. It is particularly handy if you are going to the footy or any function at Etihad Stadium as it is a very short walk not requiring any transport at all. Being adjacent to Spencer St Station is also handy for longer trips, and also the shops located into the Station itself. It is on,y a 10 min walk to the centre. I was surprised how quiet the rooms were as we heard no OUTSIDE noise as our windows faced into a large atrium, however the walls were very thin and we were affected by a lot of INSIDE noise ... Once at 2am with a group of drunk teenagers partying in the hallway and once from early risers with loud radios. We could also hear all the showers going and people coming and going on the stairwell. I suspect this could have been reduced if the walls were thicker. We had 3 adults in our room and it was very spacious and the beds very comfortable. Overall a positive stay but our interrupted sleep affected our overall experience.

We have stayed here a couple of times now and it has always been very nice. The rooms are very tasteful and well equipped with very comfortable beds. The staff are welcoming and efficient and the hotel foyer is also by comfortable, with a nice bar. If arriving from the airport via Skybus, or from the country or interstate on a train, the hotel is just across the road. Easy access walking distance to the city, or trams right outside. If driving, it is easy to find, just park out the front and valet parking will take care of your car.

Its my 3rd stay at this hotel. Not by choice, as work is only just around the corner. A period hotel across from Southern Cross Station makes it a very convenient location if you took the Skybus from the airport. You could see that this was once a grand hotel, in the same style as the Roosevelt in NYC. The rooms were modernised with old fashion fittings in mind - like a black toilet seat cover & period furniture. However the water pressure and amount of hot water is variable, which is not ideal when you're in the middle of a Melbourne winter. The queen bed I was in (rm 408) had a very sunken right side (as you face the bed) Rooms are very spacious, but the partitions between rooms are paper thin. The room next to me were a family with 3 kids. They were busily packing the night before and kept me up all night with a screaming mum and screaming kids.

I was there on a business trip for 3 nights. Room was small but lovely and cozy, staff were very helpful and was right across the road from Southern Cross Station - very convenient. Would happily stay again.

I recently stayed at the Vibe Savoy Melbourne for four nights on a work trip. The room provided was comfortable and appeared to have been recently refurbished. A big plus for the VSM is its' close proximity to Southern Cross Station and several tram routes almost at the hotel doorstep. Getting about the city via public transport from the VSM is a breeze. There is a pleasant bar on the ground floor and also a bistro (however, I didn't dine at the hotel). Apart from the rather uncomfortable bed, my only gripe about my stay is the very cursory standard of room servicing on the final night of my stay. Housekeeping of my room had been very good on the other days - so I'm not sure what happened on that last night. Nevertheless, I'd be happy to stay at the VSM next time I'm in Melbourne.

Very nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. Warm and comfortable comparing to the outside. Very close to Spencer St Station and Etihad Stadium. Great place to stay if going to Melbourne to watch the AFL. The staff was very helpful, very quick to get us a box of tissue when we ran out. They looked after our bags on they day of checking out while we went to watch another game of AFL.
