Handy for the Northern suburbs and affordable.

Posted Nov 2, 2017
I just needed somewhere comfortable and representing value for money to the immediate North of the city, for ease of getaway in the morning. Vibe fits the bill. The standard room is definitely a quality step under the premium but the quality is still is above par for a low cost hotel. Would be great if the pool was heated!

Close to shops and trams

Posted Oct 2, 2017
Pros: Close to city
Cons: A paint job and cleaned up very tired
Location: Trams close to go to town 10 minutes shopping centre close
Room was disappointing very small for three peop and price was tripled for AFL grand final the 120 a night ok but not 360 don't mind paying if it's worth it.Bath room was dirty so I showered in gym shower a lot better but shouldn't have to do that.

Nice Staff

Posted Sep 16, 2017
Pros: Has a lift for disabled people to use and the Foyer is street level with no steps. Normally the Room service for Dinner.
Cons: If you need to use a walker they need to look at the way the doors open to the bathrooms. Blinds need to shut all the way.
Location: Good location short walk to the Tram stops.
We had a booking for a Double Double which we have stayed in before which is very nice with plenty of room. When l booked asked for a roll in shower but the room does not have a roll in shower. We got asked if we would like to swap to a King size bed and Single bed room with a roll in shower, Husband has to use a walker, so we said yes, not good the room is small with not much room for a walker and when you go to the bathroom the door opens out so you can't use the walker to get into the bathroom and when you get in the bathroom you have to get in the shower which is beside the toilet so you have a space of 300 mms to get into the shower, we did say this to the staff and said we could have gone to the disabled room but there is only a Queen bed and no bedding for the grand daughter who was on the booking. Another gripe is the curtains did not close all the way so a lot of light came into the room. The room service for Dinner was not available some issue with kitchen, last time we used room service and it was great. Staff are very helpful.

Pleasant hotel close to princes park

Posted Sep 10, 2017
Cons: bedroom doors seemed to slam and echo down the corridor ( I was in room 313) which some may find a bit disruptive to sleeping
This is a very welcoming place with staff who are anxious to make the stay pleasant and comfortable - without being pushy. Opposite Princes park and regular tram service it is accessible to city and other venues.

Re breakfast

Posted Aug 22, 2017 on Lastminute
When booking the hotel we had a special inclusion of buy 1 get 1 free breakfast. When we went to get breakfast, we were told we needed to purchase it online- there was no option to buy breakfast when booking so this was very misleading when booking.
