The staff were friendly and checked us in to our room early following our long flight. The rooms are a bit dated but adequate. Comfy beds and good breakfast. The only downside which we found difficult was the road noise which went on late at night and started early in the morning. I brought some ear plugs which helped a little.

On holiday in Sydney and stayed at the Vibe. Great hotel - good service and friendly staff. The Vibe is close to everything and has a regular supply of cabs just outside the door. Highly recommended. Maloneys and Scruffy Murphy's a 5 minute walk fro great meals and ale.

Stayed here over Mardi Gras, which was a perfect location in proximity to Oxford St. Pros - Clean, modern, spacious rooms, comfy beds, rooftop pool. Cons - Strange smelling odour coming from the drain in the shower/bath, not very close to many cafes/restaurants, everything closes early. The cafe downstairs serves pretty bland "airplane" style food. Give breakfast a miss here and head down to Surry Hills, which is a bit of a walk but worth it. Mini bar menu is expensive and easy to resort to as there are no convenience shops close by. Had an upgrade to interconnecting rooms at no extra cost and impressed with housekeeping.

Room Tip: I'd vouch for a room on a higher floor so that you can utilise the rooftop pool area easier.

The Vibe was a reasonable place to stay over New Years, but didn't meet my expectations of "chic accommodation" that "exudes the style" of Sydney, as stated on the Vibe's website. There were pieces of coloured plastic stuck to the walls near the lifts, but otherwise, the hotel decor seemed quite plain.

We had interconnecting rooms, which were spacious. I am pleased to read that they have replaced all the beds since our stay, and I hope that they replaced the pillows at the same time. The roof top pool was small but the kids enjoyed it. There is no parking in the hotel, but there is a council parking station across the road with a "special hotel rate" of $30 per exit or per 24 hours.

Was traveling to Sydney on business and stayed at Vibe. Great hotel - good service and friendly staff. The mini bar prices were also some of the most reasonable I've had anywhere in Australia. Vibe is close to everything and a regular supply of cabs are just outside the door. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: As for an upgrade - sometimes you get lucky.

I stayed here for two nights and was very happy. The room is a good size, I had a great sleep, bed very comfortable, they use not tested on animal bathroom products and the room was clean. I will stay here again and ask for room 806, it is away from the road (just in case, sydney can be noisy)

My family and I stayed at the Vibe recently and we experienced some of the best customer service at this hotel when compared to all the other cafes, restaurants & pubs etc. that we visited within Sydney. Both the front desk staff and adjoining Curve restaurant staff delivered prompt, friendly, helpful and knowledgable customer service at all times. The staff were more than happy to store our bags before check in and after we had checked out. We would definitely stay again! However, I do agree the hotel needs free wifi for guests.
