Stayed for a week in this hotel, found the reception staff good and efficient making booking in easy. We emailed ahead to say that we would be arriving around 0900 from Birmingham, UK and if possible would it be possible to have access to the room, nothing promised but they said they would try, fair enough it was New Year's Eve. When we arrived a room was ready, fantastic service. Room clean and spacious. All the amenities you'd want apart from wifi. Gym and pool small but what do you expect in the middle of Sydney. Thought location was good for walking out to most places. Really close to Hyde park. The hotel has as cafe, it was always busy but we didn't use it, sorry. We used the Hyde park cafe behind the museum train station which looks out on to the park, ideal for breakfast.
Definitely recommend this hotel.

The Vibe Sydney is centrally located - handy to public transport - Buses & Central Railway station - Pitt Street Mall is 20 mins walk, as is the Botanic Gardens.....foodie central - Surry Hills / Crown Street is a 5 mins walk away.
Rooms a little date but clean & very comfortable...I was upgraded to a spacious 1 bedroom suite - good for that long weekend or extended stay.
The Hotels staff are bright & friendly. I left some clothing in the room & when I followed up 4 days later, the hotel housekeeping staff had stored the items & the front desk team quickly responded to my follow up & posted the items to me overseas - exceptional service thank you.
I would happily stay here again based on its value, location & service.

Room Tip: Request a room on a high floor to avoid some street noise

don't expect too much but if you look for good value and great location it is worth considering. we spent there 2 nights as family of 4. room was spacey enough though the window faced opposite building wall. still the location to price relation is very good. breakfast buffet is rather disgusting so you might be better off to buy a la carter in their restaurant or go outside (many options).

Dear Pleasurehunt,

Thank you for your feedback regarding Vibe Hotel Sydney.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your room. Being in the CBD of Sydney we are surrounded by buildings and we therefore do not offer any particular views as of such as we might disappoint our guests.
I have taken your comments about the buffet to our Head chef and will make sure that the buffet looks inviting all the time. It does get very busy in there so you would most likely have entered as we would have been very busy and the food would have been running low.
We apologize for this and are happy that you enjoyed the a la caret option instead.

Kind regards

I jut stayed for two nights at this hotel. The location is excellent. Lots of great bars and restaurants within walking distance on Oxford Street. The Museum metro stop is just 3 blocks away. This hotel is two metro stops from Circular Quay which has everything going on. We actually walked back and it took about 30 minutes. Our room was not available when we arrived, so they offered to store our bags and gave us passes to use the pool, sauna and showers which was great. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was spotless! I am looking forward to staying here again the next time I am in Sydney.

The room was great - we had a nice sized king bed, plus a couch. Our only issue was being on floor 1. They have conference rooms there and when we checked into our room on a Sunday afternoon there was lots of noise from the group using the conference facility. (We were hoping for a quick afternoon nap!).

The room was clean, the staff was great. Once we got oriented to Sydney we found that we could use the 555 bus to get back and forth to the harbor very easily.

Room Tip: Request a room with a couch. Our friends had a room with a king bed plus another bed, but no couch. Also, try to get something on other than the 1st floor.

Dear Cmulho1,
We strive to give every guest the best possible experience
and your feedback delights me. Thank you for sharing your
positive experience. Your friends got upgraded to a family room
which is one of our very popular room categories that accommodates
up to 4 people at a very fair rate. I do understand though that a lounge area in
the room is preferred, especially when travelling as a couple.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Kind regards
