Good vibes and cool prices in downtown Sydney
Vibe Hotel, a hip outpost in downtown Sydney, is a short stroll to the city's most popular attractions, Chinatown and the Haymarket district. Reasonable prices and a friendly staff make this a favorite for young jetsetters, families and business people looking to add a touch of cool to their Sydney experience. A fine choice for those who wish to be rooted near the action--take a quick train ride to reach boutiques and antique shops, or visit downtown fringe villages of Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Sydney's entertainment district.
Highlights
  • Sleek, fun design
  • Close to unique shopping neighborhoods
  • Affordable rates near the action

Double-paned windows in the hotel's 190 rooms and suites drown the noise of Sydney's bustling downtown streets. Rooms have a hip, urban feel with zebra print bedding, hot pink throw pillows and art deco chairs. All rooms include flat screen TV and high-speed Internet (fees apply).

Excellent location good hotel

This hotel is perfectly located to access the city, there is a bus 555 thats free that runs to circular quay where the boats leave for the zoo and other sights. There is a Coles grocery store down the street that you can purchase some food for the fridge in the room. There is a starbucks at park annd st elizabeth street that has free internet all the time which is great for staying in touch. The staff work hard to accomodate your needs, just ask and they will try. Do the hop on/off tour and climb the bridge at night its worth every cent.

Very surprised!

I booked this hotel due to price as this was the cheapest 4 star hotel in the Sydney CBD. The pool was nice and warm and the location was fantastic. So close to Chinatown and Darling Harbour.

If you want cheap food, just after the Chinatown main strip there is a food court that was really packed and really cheap!

Nice hotel, great location

The Vibe on Goulburn Street is an average hotel - neat and tidy but nothing spectacular. The location is excellent - walking distance to everything you could possibly want or need. The lobby area is very nice and the staff are helpful and very friendly. I was greeted by all staff, not just the person checking me in. The rooms are generally clean. I did find the corner desk area to be a little dusty. The bathroom was spotless, and I did enjoy the bathtub. One of the pillows had lint all over it, so I didn't use it and tossed it off the bed - but had 3 other pillows to use on the nice big king size bed with crisp white sheets. The carpet in the rooms is a bit worn out, but not too bad.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is only a few blocks from the main dining, shopping, entertainment and everything else in Sydney. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to Oxford Street, Pitt Street or George Street. The hotel is also right around the corner from Central train station, and only a $25 cab fare from the airport.

Wonderful!

The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. Let us check in early and lent us umbrellas during a downpour. The location was excellent, room was clean and plenty big enough.

Close to everything

From the smiling staff at check-in until I checked out, everything was perfect . The room was fresh and clean and towels new and white, and the king size bed so comfy. It is an easy walk to Central station and you can walk to city or Oxford street in 5- 10 minutes. The breakfast was above my budget but there are cafes in the same block that serve cheaper breakfasts. There is a small pool and sauna in the rooftop of the hotel. Good area for smokers too .

It was fine

We came to Sydney to experience the city. The location is good in that you are within walking distance to anywhere you would want to go. It's situated about 15-20 minute walk to Circular Quay. We splurged on one of the nice executive rooms but I'm sure a regular room would have been sufficient. The room was huge and had fantastic large windows. We had no issues with noise. There is a nice pool but wasn't the right outside temp for us to check it out. The room seemed like it needed some upkeep. There were some stains on the carpet, scratches on the wall. The room needed some TLC. I would recommend it if you need a standard room in a central location. The hotel cafe was good for breakfast. They charge for wifi which was dissapointing.

Excellent value at location

All pleasant. Only detraction was a charge for Wi-Fi which should be free in this day and age. That is rather tacky.

Excellent Location

We found this hotel to be very comfortable, and located close to everything! We were within walking distance of the central shopping district, Chinatown, the Quay and the Royal Gardens as well as the Central station. The Hop on- Hop off bus pickup location was within 3-4 blocks. The hotel staff was enthusiastic, knowledgable, and had good suggestions. The only negative about the hotel is that the outside sound and sound from the hall traveled into the room very clearly. Earplugs are a must if you want a good night's sleep. Beds were very comfortalbe.
