I suggested to my mum and sister (18 years old) that we stay at Vibe as I had previously stayed with friends a few years ago. It is in a great location as we were attending a conference down at the Entertainment Centre and it was an easy walk. The car park next door also was convenient as we were staying 3 nights.
I was hesistant upon reading reviews on here about unfriendly staff but seems that we got lucky.
Upon arrival we found our room to have a Queen bed and a very small pull out sofa. Even though we had booked for 3 people we only had 2 glasses in the room, 2 spoons, 2 towels and 2 soaps. We called room service who were helpful and attentative.
We ordered coffees before going off to the conference. We went down to the cafe after the first night of our conference to find the kitchen was closed, it was about 10pm. I just wanted a biscuit yet no one seemed to know the price. I was told it was $4.50 - i think she made it up.
The following day we went to order coffees again and the lady working had remembered our coffees from the previous day (which was nice, good memory) - Except... we wanted something different. She not only seemed to tune out, but got our coffees wrong and gave out one the wrong size.
The room was very run down which is not as I remembered it a couple of years ago, the button on our toilet was so hard to push we called maintenance to help - the metal around the button was practically falling off which is why it was so hard.
The shower head kept falling down and would not aim up - lucky none of us are over 5'5!!
The bed was uncomfortable will very hard pillows and the sofa bed was terrible too. Noise levels were okay.
It wasn't that bad but all the small things add up and it was a bit disappointing considering how run down it has become I probably wouldn't stay again. The price is average - but there are many other Sydney hotels with better than average rooms for the same price.
