5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

Great location near the Southern Cross Station where the Airport Shuttle leaves from, and trams to central shopping area very handy. Exceptional service at check in, useful info offered , beyond expectations. Fabulous refurbishment of building with great detailing in keeping with the historic building. Attractive stylish room at a reasonable price. We will definitely stay there again if we return to Melbourne. The only downside was some lift noise but not enough to disturb sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not near the lifts

Conveniently located on the corner of Little Collins Street and Spencer Street, this boutique style hotel offers a convenient location, comfortable but certainly not opulent rooms together with friendly, helpful and efficient staff.
We spent four enjoyable nights at the Vibe Savoy during early January. Its location was certainly a big plus. It is situated just across Spencer Street from the Sky-bus city terminal (approximately 20 minutes from Tullamarine Airport by sky-bus) and the Southern Cross interstate and regional railway station. Also, almost immediately next to the hotel on Spencer Street is a tram stop convenient for catching trams to a number of interesting locations including Bourke Street Mall and St. Kilda beach.
Our room on the 10th floor, facing Little Collins Street, provided a good level of comfort with a large and comfortable bed (strangely covered with two separate single quilts), firm chairs and a small but functional bathroom. There was adequate hanging space for clothes, a small sideboard topped with a small television and containing tea and coffee making facilities as well as nibbles (at a price) and a small bar fridge fully stocked with “mini-bar” beverages.
The reception staff were exemplary. Check-in and check-out were both fast and hassle free. On check-in, we were allowed access to our room at 12.30pm, ie. 90 minutes before the standard check-in time. At check-out (10.00am), we were able to store our luggage in the concierge’s store room until we were ready to catch our sky-bus to the airport at 2.00pm. Very convenient and much appreciated.
Some small negatives, included very dirty widows obscuring the limited view from the room, a couple of obvious mould spots in the shower alcove and exorbitant prices for the mini bar beverages and associated nuts, crisps and chocolates. (tip - there is an IGA supermarket just along Spencer Street where drinks and nibbles can be purchased at reasonable prices).
In summary, the pluses outlined above, far outweighed the few minor negatives. Well worth consideration as accomodation for your next visit to Melbourne.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher floor to avoid traffic noise, with a view to Little Collins Street. Av...

Thank you for your detailed feedback about your stay in January this year at the Vibe Savoy Hotel. The hotels location is very convenient to all our guests and a definite selling point for the hotel. I am pleased the hotel team exceeded your expectation with their service, as this is an area we continually look at being the best we can be. Your feedback on the external windows is being addressed next month with a window cleaning program set up to get this done.
Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to being your accommodation of choice when next in Melbourne

This old hotel has been nicely renovated, keeping some of the original features but providing all the modern creature comforts. The room was clean and super-quiet, owing to the fact that you cannot open the window.

The hotel is just across the road from Southern Cross Station, perfect if you are catching a train or a bus to the airport.

Overall, a nice hotel. I have stayed here several times and I keep coming back.

I've stayed here recently on business and had to ask to change rooms. The first room had such on old musty stale smell it was unbearable. The staff were very accommodating and within a few minutes met me in my room and escorted me to a new one. The new room thank goodness did not have an offending odour. The rooms are a decent size but everything looks tired. The bed was two singles pushed together with stange single quilts on each bed. This hotel has one of those annoying master switches which meant I spent 15 minutes wondering why none of the power points would charge my phone (power points all located in inconvenient spots). The bathroom is just ok...towels are probably due to be replaced.
Breakfast was a confusing affair with staff trying to tell me to pay but I explained it's charged back to my company's travel agency...the staff member clearly needed additional training.
Overall I'd never stay here if I had a choice but it's on our corporate travel list of approved hotels so it's out of my control.
The location is opposite Southern Cross station but there are few decent restaurants within walking distance.

This hotel overall was average. Its an old building but refurbished, but it only had 2 lifts and 1 was out of service when i arrived, fixed the next day and broken again for my last 3 days, its an 11storey building with only 1 lift its a joke. I walked down from the 10th floor a few times but walking up was to much! often you couldn't get in the lift on your first try. On check out on a busy Friday they had 1 girl on reception, so took ages to checkout. The bar area was OK and you are very central.
Would try NOT to stay again if given the choice.

Thank you for your feedback from you recent stay at the Vibe Savoy Hotel. Allow me to apologise for any inconvenience the out of service lift may have caused too you. I can assure you the matter was being investigated by our lift mechanics, however such matters at times do take longer than expected. The lift is now fully operationally.
Once again thank you for your feedback
