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
Rooms

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).

could be so much better

Great location. Staff very helpful.Room adequate but sheets stained. "green" request, make up room lightly get a free drink, complied, but no drink! Pool very small,three 's a crowd.No free wifi.Late check out $30/hr. Breakfast buffet in D/r, $20, breakfast in lounge very slow. Room key hardly ever worked. It's a pity, this hotel could be so much better if management paid attention to detail. We found it expensive, but Sydney is expensive.We will try and find a better deal next time.Recommend with reservations.

look for places away from the tourists where the locals eat, eg Crown st.. Try pub food in the old hotels back side of the Rocks.Train from airport to central sta, $15, cheaper than cab. Free bus 555 line on George st. Take a ferry rather than a tour.

POST-CRUISE STAY

Nice Hotel, The rating should be 3 1/2 stars. Desk is very helpful and location is excellent; the Gym is small (both machines I commonly use were taken so I had to wait a long time); my other complaint was the 24 hour room internet (costs $24,99/day) extremelly slow and not worth the $$. Overall a nice hotel, certainly not a 4*, but well located, safe and fine for a short stay.

average hotel in OK location

Hotel is in a decent location - central to everything and only 2 blocks from metro. Rooms are big, but furniture is cheap and worn. Walls in the room were pretty dirty. Internet was extra $25 charge. For the rate I paid, I expected something nicer and with WiFi included.

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.

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.

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.

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.
