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).

Great location and great service

Great location in Sydney, close to Hyde Park. Clean rooms and friendly staff. They allowed me to check in early which was a great experience! I will stay again at the Sydney Vibe on my next trip.

Excellent stay

Hotels in Sydney are expensive but the Vibe was excellent and well worth the price. Good location, within easy reach of a metro station and the free CBD shuttle. Within easy walking reach of many services and attractions as well. Skip the breakfast - many cheaper alternatives close by. Room was extremely comfortable and clean and staff very friendly and helpful.

Review of Vibe Hotel

The location was wonderful--everything is close and bus stops are near. The staff at the desk was great--we came in early from the airport but they still checked us in. The hotel is a bit dated but clean and that's what mattered to us. the rooms are quite spacious and has everything you need.

Good location, decent/average

It would have been great if they had our reservation when we arrived. Overall average hotel, minimal/basic amenities. The phone didn't ring in our room, and messages were not available except when randomly delivered by someone from reception. Overall reasonable value for Sydney, easy walk to majority of attractions and neighborhoods. Had to contest bill on checkout, and had several mis-charges. Each of three separate orders to room service were messed up, and had to contest billing of each item. They were accommodating in making the changes, so there were no real issues. I'm just glad they had availability when we arrived because many other hotels were sold out. If they had not, this would have been a serious issue. I would stay there again if nothing else in the price range and proximity was available.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To get between the Central Train Station and Circular Quay, look for the free 555 buses that run along Elizabeth and George streets. They make many stops along the way, and are easier/cheaper than the subway or taxi. However, look at the times as they only run until 3:30pm most weekdays. The Curve cafe in the Vibe has a good lunch deal for an entree and beer for $12.50, which is good for Sydney.

Nice Hotel!

The hotel was nice, clean, and quiet. It was in a decent location. Darling Harbour was about a 10 minute walk and the Rocks/Sydney Harbour was about a 15 minute walk. We took their subway to the Sydney Harbour to save time (about $4 round trip). The hotel eatery/bar was expensive! I would eat elsewhere (even across the street). DO NOT TAKE CABS! They are super expensive. All places are walkable or there is the subway & bus system. The hotel staff are super friendly and will help you get to where you need to go. We stayed on the third floor and it was quiet. At least it seemed quiet but we pretty much zonked out each night from all the fun we were having during the day. While in Sydney, our most favorite activity was the Sydney Bridge Climb. It was pricy but COMLETELY worth every penny! The climb is steep with some stairs but you do not notice it because the guides break it up with history, stories, spotting locations, etc. While at the top, the scenery is breathtaking! They also have different versions of the climb and we did the more adventurous one. This is the one thing we would recommend people to do while in Sydney.

Liked the Vibe

We very much enjoyed our stay. We had a family room, which was a bit tight, but worked well for what we needed. The price was very reasonable for Sydney and we could walk everywhere.

Sydney Vibe Hotel

The Vibe's best feature is the location: a few blocks away from Chinatown for superb and reasonably priced food while smack between the Museum and Central Station stop for the train to / from the airport. Likewise the free CBD bus that takes you to Circular Quay is only two blocks away. You can also easily walk to Circular Quay and the business / shopping areas downtown. The staff was helpful. The room -- and the hotel itself -- is clean but slightly dated and the room could use a coat of paint. The bathroom is clean and hot water plentiful. The room is kept spanking clean everyday. And our room on the 6th floor is blissfully quiet due to some powerful double paned windows. For what we paid (about US$130/ night) it is a good value no question. But the room was not as nice as pictures on the hotel's website. And our 6th floor hallway smelled like curry for the 3 days that we were there probably because the air intake is next to an Indian restaurant. However, our room did not smell like curry thank goodness. Do stay for the location and good value but don't expect it to be in tiptop shape.
