Good location, friendly staff

We were there for five nights for the new year. The hotel is located right off the train station. We also walked across the bridge to the main Sydney with ease. Great staff, willing to help, and friendly. Safe, secure private parking underground, but cost $30 per night. The 30th and 31st of December, they charged $60 per night! We had a room that looks out at a wall, we just pretended it wasn't there. The room is clean, pretty good in size, the rest are pretty standard.

Room with a View

Lucky enough to be upgraded to an executive suite, the 12 floor room had views over Sydney harbour. Having chosen The Vibe North Sydney due to its location near Luna Park I was pleasantly surprised how close it was. Having access to a private pool and sauna, a restaurant, and nearby entertainment. I have already recommended this hotel to several friends.

Great location, shame about the aircon

Not sure if if was because of the site that we booked it through however we were placed on Level 2 on the pool and sauna floor. The room was clean and tidy, the bathroom was a little bit small as we had to walk in, partially close the door to get into the shower but other than that is was ok. Only real complaint was our aircon didn't seem to work and sounded like water was gushing through it. Luckily it wasn't too hot but it did make the room pretty stuffy

Family Trip

The hotel was nice & we had a stunning view of the bay from our room on the 10th floor. The Milson Point train station is right across the road which is very handy for getting to the City. You can also walk over the famous bridge which is only bout 30min, also near Luna park there is a boat stop that will bring you 1 stop over to Circular Quay. Location cannot be faulted! Breakfast was not included in price even though we paid a good amount for the hotel. Breakfast is good but a bit on the expensive side $28 Hot, $22 continental. Would recommend cafe beside hotel just down the lane instead for better value. No free wi-fi unless you make a purchase in the restaurant & at that it is only for 30mins, these days surely it is expected to have free wifi at the very least in public areas. Free wifi in a cafe up the road if you take a left out of hotel. Would prefer to stay definitely in this area again but not in hotel but an apartment, did not find value for money here. We asked hotel staff about car rental & they were no help really but in general they were fine.

Satisfactory stay

The Vibe had a courteous, helpful staff. It is located within a short walk from Luna Park and is only about 50m from the Milson Point train station, which was very convenient. Also nearby were some cheap, convenient eats and a pharmacy. The 2-egg and bacon sandwich is a good hangover cure after a long night at the Rocks. I stayed here to save cash at the end of a trip. On a peak night the hotel room was still under 200 bucks, which is hard to find in Sydney. The hotel room was nothing special, but had a refrigerator and a TV. I had a decent view of Sydney harbor without extra costs. I think the best review I saw previously said that it was like a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn, with a "mod" theme, perhaps.

To get to the Rocks, walking across the harbor bridge doesn't take much more time than taking the train down to Wynard and walking. If the weather was good, I'd walk the bridge.

Like staying at a Holiday Inn or Ramada Inn - very friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed the 2-night stay. Close to a trendy area of small restaurants.

Vibe Hotel, North Sydney, AU

The hotel was right near the base of the beautiful harbor bridge and ferry service and train station. The hotel had lovely views of the harbor. The staff let us check out one hour later than check out time. Nice restaurants just the other side of the train stations. Not near downtown, but just a short ferry ride away and close to a good walk across the bridge.
