“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I stayed four nights at the Vibe while in Darwin for a conference. It seems to be conference central, with a number of conferences being held in the Convention Centre over the days prior to and after my stay, with delegates staying at the hotel. While very full, the hotel did not seem crowded or busy. It is close to the CBD via the sky bridge. The Waterfront area is very touristy, and really could be anywhere in the world. To get a feel for Darwin, one must go for a walk into the city and along the foreshore.
My room was clean but small, with housekeeping being very good to outstanding, depending on the day. The bathroom was fine, but the shower was over the bath, something I am not a fan of. The bathroom light was dull, so not great for makeup.
Checking and check out was easy, and staff happy to book a taxi for me to the airport. The Curve restaurant was fine, although there are plenty of options for all meals.
Overall a great place to stay.

Hotel was clean, straight and what I expected. The Waterfront precinct is beautiful. The main dining outlet is good. It is a family friendly environment and pretty much the no1 place to stay in Darwin.

The staff are friendly however I had a bad check-in experience and then was at risk of missing my flight as the staff forgot to book my taxi.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a conference. Located about 100 metres away from the conference centre, this place is great. Plenty of restaurants and coffees shops and perfect if you want a swim in the lagoon...
TIPS. Ask for a room away from the PRECINCT PUB which is downstairs at the eastern end, the noise from the pub late at night can be off putting.

I was here for 3 nights for a conference. Great location by the Waterfront with plenty of restaurants and bars close by, great to duck back between sessions and go for a quick swim! Fantastic staff who were super friendly.

I came here for a work conference I July this year and was very pleasantly surprised. The lication is amazing, right on the waterfront with a lagoon, wavepool and freat resaurants surrounding. The weather was perfect and the staff were lovely. Will have to come back for a holiday. Highly recommend this place.

The Vibe is a family friendly hotel set in a fantastic location with great views. There is a variety of choices of bars and restaurants and plenty to do with the kids during the day.
A great great away even for locals.

I would come back. The rooms are good. The location is fantastic. The views on the harbour side are wonderful. The corridors are very long and boring. The dining staff are sweet and helpful. I really liked the bed. It was very comfortable.
