Recent guest reviews

Excellent location, friendly staff, comfortable and clean accommodation, close to public transport, shops, restaurants, Lygon and Brunswick St precints are a short walk or tram ride away.and short trip to city .

The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My room was large, comfortable, modern and very quiet. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good and reasonably priced. I would happily stay again at the hotel.

Relaxing time had. Beautiful hotel with lovely views and spacious rooms. I checked in at 2am and the staff were very helpful. Comfy bed, clean bathroom. Just disappointed my stay sad in middle of winter as the pool and spa looked so good

Thanks for looking after my brother and his daughter for the 6 days that they stayed at your hotel! It was very conveniently located as a "home base" for their holiday. Onsite parking meant they didn't have to walk too far to get back to their room after long days of sightseeing.

Room below standard, stains, broken vanity. Noisy staff moving around industrial bins at 6 am. Room was not cleaned properly, didn't even make the bed. Reception staff were very good, but I won't recommend this hotel to anyone.

This motel is in a great location for visitors to Melbourne. However it took advantage of a long weekend & provided very little value for the rate that it charged. Could do a lot more to welcome their guests.

I love the old schoolness of this place. Decent sized beds, nothing tricky about the rooms, a little bit of " home" ( tea and coffee) but basically an old school, clean and tidy motel room. You can park for a very low rate, you can easily access Carlton and Brunswick as well as the city and the location is also in walking distance of Melbourne university and the zoo. What more could a tourist want?

Thinking this was a great place to stay after out last stay a few months before....what a joke.!! Went to check in...n waited and waited ...while the guy at counter made another customer coffee to go. Yay...after being acknowledged and a nice chat to Harett we got to our rm 119. The aircon was on n it was bloody freezing. Curtains open and yep room faced out onto the road so now as i write this...its very coming n going, people talking...grrr. Can also hear every door slam shut and every toilet flush in rms next door. The beds are comfy n the rm and bath rm itself are pretty good but location this time was crap. Prefer a room out back looking over the pool ...alot quieter. Got very pissed off to wake up at 3am with the heater blaring away at us. Woke up sweating. Obviously was on a timer.....grrrrr. No more sleep now. Don't think i will return again.

Park the car and relax. Great for country travellers. Easy to get to and friendly service. Satisfying breakfast at a reasonable price. No issues and clean and tidy rooms. will definitely stay again good location

We are very happy with Vibe Hotel Carlton and will continue to stay there on our visits to Melbourne. The staff were very helpful with our requests. The buffet breakfast was very nice with a great variety.
