“Convenient location, clean, and basic.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We stayed for a week at the Vibe Savoy while I attended a conference (Nov/Dec 2013). At the time of booking the staff promptly responded to my inquiries about getting to and from the convention center and early arrival. Upon arriving we were able to check in early. The convention center was a short walk. The staff (especially JC-I think that is his name) was great in assisting with booking an excursion and any questions we had. The internet/wifi is the only complaint I have. You can pay $2 for 10 minutes in the business center, get 30 minutes free/day in the lobby or pay for in room use. The connectivity was very slow so it takes longer to connect than to actually use it. JC tried his best to get me connected, but it just took a long time. The lobby level bar/restaurant has they typical "Melbourne" $10 lunch specials. It is convenient, but just ok in taste. Dinner was a little better. The hotel is across from a central bus station that have buses that run to and from the airport. There is even a mall over there. This was a very conveniently located hotel with great staff at a good price. The room was a tad small and the shower sits up so you have to be careful stepping out of it (I almost fell one day). The shower also only has a half door so sometimes water spills out onto the floor. There was no "self-service" laundry facility. You can send it out, but it is costly. I would stay here again if I returned to Melbourne.

We loved staying at the Vibe Savoy Hotel in Melbourne. The rooms were clean and tidy and had everything you would need for your stay. We had the buffet breakfast, which was delicious and quite reasonably priced. The bed was very comfortable. We weren't bothered by street noise and had no trouble sleeping. The staff were great, very courteous and helpful.

I stayed here mid week for a couple of days, and although it is across the road from perhaps the busiest train station in Melbourne, the noise was not a problem. The bar/cafe in the foyer was welcoming and quite nice for a night cap or a bite to eat. The room was well appointed with a nice size sitting area , desk reasonable bathroom and a mezzanine floor bedroom with a comfortable and large bed. The breakfast was definitely a high light, although much the standard fare for a four star it was all hot, fresh and tasty and the service was excellent. If this place is in you price range I would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed in the executive suite at the Vibe and it was great. Split across two levels with the living, bathroom and kitchen on the ground floor and the sleeping area on top. The rooms were pleasant and well appointed. The only downside was the street noise came through into the room which made it hard to sleep at times.

The valet parking was also well priced and efficient.

The Good:
* valet parking: quick and efficient
* The politeness of the staff
* The helpfulness of the staff
* The effectiveness of the 'key' - we have experienced issues with keys over the years

The Bad:
* ONE tissue in the tissue box!
* light over the desk didn't work
* noise from the dinning room was disturbing in the morning (we had an inward facing room

We stayed here for one night on our recent tour of Australia.

It is located opposite the Southern Cross station where you can catch a coach direct to the airport. Walk a short distance and you can jump on the City Circle tram which is free and as its name suggests, circles the centre of Melbourne. You can hop on and off and visit whichever attractions are of interest to you.

The hotel is clean and modern with a large lobby.

The room we stayed in was not as big as in some of the other hotels we stayed at, but was plenty adequate for a one night stay. It had all the usual facilities one would expect from accommodation of this standard.

There was no free wifi available in the room. Free wifi available in the reception area was limited to 30 minutes per 24 hours for one device per room only, usable all at once. We never even bothered trying to get online. We used the free service provided at the State Library of Victoria and various other establishments within the city.

Breakfast was included for our tour group and was buffet style and to a good standard.

For its excellent location and overall quality, I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

I booked this hotel as it was the cheapest I could find in the city a few weeks ago, I wasn't sure what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised. My partner and I booked a king room. Upon arrival we were upgraded to and executive room, which I assume was just a bit bigger in floor space than a normal one. It was a beautiful room, extremely comfortable bed and so centrally located to everything we needed. The staff were fabulous and if I had to pick anything I would say the bathrooms are a bit out dated but given the overall experience this was not a bother to us. This will definitely be our choice of hotel for any future stays in Melbourne.
