Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The staff were very helpful and kind on arrival to us and knew we had family arriving the next day. The young man tried to make sure we were all on the same floor. My brother in law booked it for us and we did not know what the situation was, apparently twin beds were booked and we asked for queen size. This was orlganised for us and our other family members apparently wanted single beds they ended up with queen size beds, we had a bit of a giggle as apparently that is what they wanted. Everyone was happy with their accomodatiion. It is a nice walk into the city to eat or shop, the trams were fantastic to get around on, we loved them. We said what a pity it was that Sydney got rid of the trams, how silly as they are reliable, cheap, do not block traffic, wonderful system. We have nothing to complain about but would like to mention that on our last night, we were having a drink with our family members and they did not want dinner as they had a big lunch, we on the other hand were very hungry and decided to go to the restaurant which was in the same area as the bar. This was around 7.30 am we only ordered simple meals, but they never came, we waited around 40 minutes and then my husband approached the young lady who ordered our meals and advised we would not wait any longer, as we were very hungry. Instead we went over the road to the supermarket and purchased some bread rolls and took them to our room and had a cup of coffee, bread rolls and fruit. This part we were disappointed with, and wondered why our meals did not come, as we were the only people waiting for an order, we seemed to be the last in the restaurant to order. We had a nice stay in Melbourne.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 608 it was fine.

After a long flight and had my connecting flight delayed for several hours, I arrived at the hotel exhausted around 9.30am. As soon as we step into the lobby, we were welcomed and warmly greeted with a big smile from the front staff. I could not feel my exhaustion anymore. The front service was excellent, and in particular I should single out, Handy Limms. He was attentive and friendly without being overbearing as a duty manager. As we approached him, we asked him whether our room is ready. He said, I could try your luck!. After I filled out the guest registration card, he looked at us without a smile. At first, I thought that we had a bad luck 9 hours ago, we could have another one. He then surprised us with saying 'Your room is ready'. The moment he say that we feel relieved and treated like extra extra special.

We spent two nights here in early October 2012. The room furniture has the old charm. The price was reasonable. Concierge, Glen, extremely helpful and courteous. Great sense of history and luxury. He gave us perfect experience of Melbourne. The Curve breakfast was great. The Alex bar lunch meal was fantastic, especially with the $10 steak. The hotel has a great and handy location, with handy staff. Yes, handy staff, with staff name call Handy. What a great name.

Overall brilliant service staff, the best in recent memory. All in all perfect, to be repeated.

Straight across the road from Spencer St Station and Spencer St shops along with tram to City and St Kilda. Easy walk to Docklands and Ethiad Stadium so in a great location. Rooms and common areas are a bit tired but don't let that put you off as it is very clean and well priced. If you aren't going to be in your room much it doesn't really matter. Bed was comfy and given the location there is no noise from the street. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room so you get a view of the surrounds

Thank you for your valuable feedback about your recent stay at the Vibe Savoy Hotel. The hotel is commencing a soft refurbishment within the rooms next month, so you will see the furniture modernised without losing its old world charm. We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy it first hand.

I stayed for 8 days. The price was right and the staff excellent and helpful. Some issues with wake up calls but that was minor. Great location. Decor a little old but the clean and spacious rooms made up for it.

Came to the hotel early on a Sunday and my room was ready for me two hours early. Great room, loads of space and faced out to Southern Cross. An absolutely excellent location and breakfast buffet every morning was fantastic. Such nice staff in the buffet who showed me around and greeted me every morning with a smile. Checkout was easy and overall it was just a very lovely place to stay. Will definitely be coming back.

No greeting and very bad service at checkin desk. Room small but clean. Bathroom also very small with shower located above bath. NOTE care needs to be taken stepping out of bath if floor is wet! Ok for one night but would not stay here for any length of time.

Stayed one night at the Vibe on business. Check in was good. I had a car, just pull up outside and the staff park the car, $25. The staff were friendly, the room was clean. The Hotel is art deco and a little quirky! It is well located for transport, South Bank and a 10 minute walk to main shops and China Town. The Hotel has a Gym and the bar area is ok for a drink.

Nice Hotel would stay again.
