They advertise rooms with a view, and we paid for one, but do not be mistaken, there is not! The hotel faces the motor way and even though it is beside a park / marina, only a few rooms will see this, or corners of it. The only view is from the pool area, which is admittedly really nice (see attached picture).
We've stayed at other Vibe hotels as they tend to be very trendy and a great atmosphere, but this one not so much. They have tried and I'll give them that, but the building and rooms are in need of an up-do. The bathroom was renovated and nice, and the bed very trendy and comfortable, but the rest a bit old.
Room was so-so clean, but the housekeeping tidied it up the second night, without asking. Housekeeping was very friendly. The front desk staff didn't seem thrilled to be there either day or any time we visited. Not rude, but disinterested and seemed a bit annoyed when asked questions.
Our biggest complaint was the location, only about 5 blocks from the red light district, although admittedly it doesn't run over. If you take the train home though, you will have to walk through it to get back to the hotel. This hotel is not good for children!!
Parking is horrendous. Underground and secure, but very tight (which I hear is common for Sydney) and way over-priced. It was over $25 a night to park although on their website and in the room even they advertise less.
Internet was $12.50 an hour or $25 for 24 hours I believe. Food is very expensive and no where's close by to eat unless willing to dine in the red-light district.
