“The Vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This hotel is quiet, clean, spacious and manned by friendly staff. The position is very good being right opposite the SouthernCross Station complex. The only downside was the time it took for us to get our starters once we had ordered in the downstairs Alexandra Bar, Apart from that small hiccup it is to be highly recommended. The beds were comfortable and there were baths in the ensuites :-) - a nice touch I thought.

Great location near the train station and such easy access to the shopping areas. The staff were very pleasant to deal with and booking and a change made was dealt with well. The room for 3 single beds was roomy and comfortable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

stayed at vibe with a friend over the weekend. we arrived at different times and my friend was able to collect her key from reception without any major problems.

the hotel itself is in a pretty good location - 5 min walk to etihad stadium for the footy, 5 min tram ride to bourke st mall for shopping, 5 mins to crown.

our room was a little bit on the small side, but it was clean and functional. the bed was really comfy! we had a room right on spencer st so we thought it might be noisy but we barely noticed it of a night. the heater and lights in the room took a bit of thinking to get working too!

went to eat breakfast one morning at curve - but decided against it. thought it would be like curve at vibe sydney, where you could order one thing, but only buffet options were available and they were pretty overpriced. the bar downstairs was a pretty nice area. had one drink there on friday night. found it strange though how the staff member there didnt really call last drinks, he just packed up and ended up leaving when there were still about 4 tables worth of people in there. almost like he was clock watching and waiting for the exact minute he could leave. seemed a little bit unprofessional. plus a few groups of people came up to the bar looking for service after said staff member had left - we had to tell them that the staff had left and they weren't too pleased! i think in this situation it would probably be appropriate to either have a closed sign on the bar, or have a staff member working until there is no one left in the bar area. just an opinion though.

overall, had a pretty good stay and i would probably stay again. though i did book my hotel room on sale and i probably wouldn't pay full price to stay in the room we had.

stayed in the Master suite. Would have thought it was well sound proofed but it wasn't. Location is very very good. Convenient to the train station and Sky Bus from the airport. Staff where good but I expected that. Rooms were tidy but not amazing. I'm guessing this place aims to be a solid 3 star place and meets those expectations. The location though is more 4.5 stars.

Staff were great, barman was knowledgeable, food was nice, rooms were clean but basic, very convenient and reasonably priced. I would recommend to anyone needing reasonably priced accomodation in the centre of Melbourne. Had a really nice atmosphere.

Your hotel is an extremely friendly place to stay. The staff are excellent at check-in, check-out, bar/restaurant. Terrific service, nice to be recognised and welcomed as a returning customer. Nice note and chocolates.
