“Great weekend away”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Our criteria for a hotel in Sydney for our weekend were: sleeps a family of four, close to city attractions, easy access to public transport and affordable (in Sydney terms). Vibe delivered on all of these, and we would stay here again (although 2 adults and 2 young children in the same room means we would look elsewhere if longer than a weekend stay).

Positives: location (close to Museum Station, Hyde Park, shopping centre), clean, nice roof top pool, on site restaurant/cafe, 11am checkout
Negatives: Nothing major - wifi and movies were both very expensive

Arrived VERY LATE - courtesy of Sydney traffic and settled in late at night. Welcoming and friendly staff. Room was fine but we didn't get to use the extras. Breakfast down stairs was fine. Quite good value for Sydney city.

A twin room was booked but a double delivered. When the beds were split adequate linen was not supplied - one single sheet and one double with no doona on the second bed. Interestingly there are no exhaust fans in the bathrooms - so if you like steam.....

I took my son to see Tyrannosaurs meet the family and stayed at Vibe because of the pool, price and proximity to the Australian Museum. We were not disappointed. Luke loved the roof top pool and all you can eat bacon for breakfast. He said he wanted to spend 3 weeks at the hotel in 2014. The decor is a bit scuffed and ageing. But the staff were very helpful, getting us taxis on demand, late checkout, left luggage, and great with kids.

The room is spacious and clean and reasonably priced in the heart of Sydney. Stayed here for an overnight business trip. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Would happily stay again when required. It appears that there are interconnecting rooms for the convenience of larger groups or families.

Stayed a week for business. Queen Room was really spacious and clean, with couch, coffee table, desk etc and plenty of room to move. Bed was comfy and place was surprisingly quiet. Great central location to everything I needed, staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing to complain about at all.

3rd stay at the Vibe during an annual business trip to Sydney.

Nice ambience in the lobby and rooms spacious and clean enough.

However my biggest gripe, as always, is the lack of free wifi. Guests get 30 mins free in the lobby, but the speed is terrible. On my last night the server was down and staff refused to simply unplug it, wait a moment and reboot.

Guys, this is the 21st century, please provide free wifi. It's no excuse to say other hotels don't do so, you should be doing so.

You're a modern hotel, with conference facilities close to the CBD of a world city. It's called 'competitive advantage'.

The lack of decent free wifi is the hotel's only failing really, but it is a major, major failing.

Sort it out before my next visit please
