Vibe Hotel Rushcutters Bay Sydney
Ranked #73 of 179 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We have stayed at Rushcutters on a number of occasions.
The welcome is friendly and the hotel has good access from the Sydney freeways.
Our rooms are well furnished and immaculately clean.
Room Service meals are of good quality and size.
I always visit the roof top Pool especially at sunset. Superb views and the water is never cold.
A must do!!
The hotel is close to railway stations, cafes and supermarkets.
It is also adjacent to the Harbour walk for picturesque exercises.
It is our Hotel of choice in Sydney. We return next month!!

Room Tip: Front facing rooms are no noisier but have better views

I have stayed here for three weeks in 2010 December. Room was very well maintained and the location was awesome. It got a roof top swimming pool and the view from the top is fantastic; you may take a bottle of wine and enjoy an evening on the top :)

From the moment I entered the reception area I was impressed with the friendly attitude from all the staff. As I am not able to walk far and need a cane when walking they gave me a room with a balcony (only two in the hotel) a shower not over a bath as most are, in fact they gave me a wonderful three night stay. The room service was great and the maid service was as friendly as the rest of the staff. No wonder the airlines use this hotel for their staff during their rest time, I could not have asked for a more relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: There are many choices of rooms you can take, just tell them what you would like on admission.

I have been looking forward to staying at the Vibe Rushcutters for so long and I would have to say that I was disappointed. For starters, if you are close to the main road, the traffic noise at night is quite noticeable. And once again, if you are like me and want total blackout when you sleep, the rooms at this hotel miss the mark by a long shot. The rooms are also very noisy. I could hear the people next door through the walls and people in the corridor could be easily heard.

I ordered room service breakfast on the first morning and while the fruit platter was one of the best that I have had, the toast was cold, hard and was not delivered with a plate to butter it on. For the prices you pay for hotel breakfasts, plus the service charge, this is a total rip off and quality poor. No newspaper was delivered despite being requested.

The next night after returning from a dinner, there was no breakfast order form in the room so went out for breakfast the next morning. A paper was delivered today.

I also don't understand why when you are asked to not wash your towels etc to save water, that soap and shampoo bottles with minimal use are ditched after one night. It is not just this hotel but the waste from soaps and shampoos etc in plastic bottles is enormous.

Overall, very disappointing and no further stays at this brand.

Room Tip: Get a room away from busy South Head Road (I think that's what it is called).

Dear Pb3141,

Thank you for your invaluable feedback. I will be communicating your feedback regarding your room service order & cleaning of your room to both our food & beverage & housekeeping teams. I sincerely apologise for the inconsistency in receiving your newspaper and breakfast forms, consistency in providing excellent customer service is what we pride ourselves on, and I am disappointed that this was not the case during your stay. I do hope you will consider staying with us again, so that we can show you what we are truly capable of.

Kind regards,

Stayed at hotel for an extended period re business. Did not have any problems with staff, cleaning and meals. Try the Italian restaurant / pizza house opposite. Five minute walk from Kings Cross. Adjacent to main road, but noise was not a problem. Breakfast available at hotel, but try the cafe 40 metres up the street. Other places to eat nearby or short taxi fare away to city or east side of the of city. Nearby bus stops. Rushcutters Bay park next door with good walking area and personal trainers within the park area. Adjacent Marina (used for Sydney to Hobart) Good bar downstairs. Secure parking available under the hotel. I would return to this hotel, its not five star, but worth its four star rating. Rooftop pool with great views where you can have a meal or drink. If I intended to party up the Cross this is the hotel where I would stay.

We, my husband & I, stayed here for 5 nights on our short break to Sydney. While not in the centre of Sydney, it is located in a nice area next to a park. We walked from here to Circular Quay and the Opera House several times, took about 45 minutes at an easy pace.
The room we had on the 4th floor looked over the road, but noise was not an issue as the windows are double glazed. The room was up to 4 star standard and was the same as advertised on the website, which is not always the case.
There are bus stops outside and across the road so it is easy to get about.
The restaurant is ok, the price of dinner was about average but breakfast is very over priced. $30 for a cooked breakfast and $21 for continental. I would think a better price would have been $ 20 for cooked and $15 for continental. After the first morning we went to a cafe just up the road, Base 88 who had much more reasonable prices and the food was lovely.
My husband & I enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.

This hotel is nothing special but it is comfortable. clean enough and affordable. We stay in it for the easy location to family and it has some lovely parks and the Rushcutters Bay marina next to it. This makes for very pleasant morning stolls. If you feel fit enough you can walk to the city via the Domain/botanical gardens in about 30 - 40 minutes, it does involve steps and gentle slopes. otherwise walk to Kings Cross station and train in or flag down a taxi. They do organise a shuttle service to the airport which is great...cost AUS$14 per person. We haven't used the restaruant and bar (Curve Bar) but they appear to have some good deals during the week.
We have stayed here x2 now and do feel it is rather noisey with regards hearing the other guests going to their rooms late at night and you can hear people in the next room opening blinds etc. But as I said, it is a great price for Sydney and Rushcutters Bay is an up market address.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the end of the corridors so less people are going past your door late at n...
