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

Nice Hotel for Four

It is very hard to find a hotel in other countries that sleeps more than two. Vibe hotel offered a "quad" room which meant we didn't need to book two rooms for our stay in Sydney - yeah!

Great location

We used this hotel for its walkability to numerous attractions: Darling Harbour, Hyde Park, the Queen Victoria Building, and Chinatown. It worked out great for us. The internet fees were higher here than we encountered on the street though. Go somewhere else.

Vibe Hotel Sydney

The Vibe is located in a great spot for all activities. It is up to date and very clean, although we were not there but to sleep. Internet was expensive.

Loved the Vibe!

What a great place! You never know when you're booking a hotel sight-unseen, but the Vibe was a great choice for us. It's just ~2 blocks from the Museum train station and ~10 minute walk from Darling Harbour. My husband and I walked from there all around the city--up to the Opera House, to Circular Quay, the Rocks, etc. The decor is modern and the rooms are clean and spacious with large, flat-panel TVs, mini-fridges, wine/champagne glasses, hair dryers, irons/boards, etc.The pool is on the roof, which is cool, and there are tables and chairs up there as well, which we planned on utilizing for our own little happy hour wine and cheese party with friends, but unfortunately there was a thunder & lightening storm the night we wanted to do that! Luckily, our room was nice enough (with two art deco chairs and a small, round glass table)that we were able to have the happy hour in there.Downstairs in the Vibe's restaurant you can enjoy a great happy hour as well. Drinks are just $4 (for the identified variety of wine, beer & champagne), which is unheard of in this expensive town! And they have a great 'bar' menu as well (written on one of the mirrors, not printed on the actual menu).We found the staff very helpful and polite; we did encounter a small glitch with a reservation they helped us with, but I'm sure it was just an honest mistake. Our room was a little noisy even up on the 5th floor since the Vibe is on a busy street, but I just popped in my ear plugs (which I found I used throughout my vacation!) and slept away.We would definitely recommend the Vibe and booking on [...] gave us a great price!

Great Spot

Easy, short walking distance to city-center, shopping, parks and harbours. Although this hotel does not have a dining room, it does have a fantastic little cafe serving simple but yummy meals.

Great Location for the Price

Great location and I recommend the hotel highly. Don't bring a car if you are interested in downtown Sydney. Mine never left the garage and the parking fee just added to the cost. There is an inexpensive shuttle to the airport. My only complaint is the high cost of internet service. Although typical of many hotels, $25/day was too exhorbitant to use.

Don't rent a car if you are staying in Sydney. The airport is really close and shuttles and cabs are much cheaper than renting and parking.

Perfect Location!

This is a perfect hotel for walking to Darling Harbour, and there is a free city shuttle that stops just feet from the front door that takes you to Circular Quay. You really can't find a better location! The hotel was very clean, and the staff helpful. Didn't eat the food there, but looked good.
