“Bad food otherwise good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

My partner and I stayed here last weekend, accommodation was nice but the food was pretty bad. Being 8 months pregnant I hoped they would take a little more care with the food like serving it hot! but they did replace it for me after making a deal out of it

Whilst the rooms reminded me of my stay in some Asian countries because of the mold on the bathroom walls I thought the location was very good if you didn't mind abit of noise. It was next to rail services and within walking distance to the pubs, shop and many attractions .

A great hotel with big rooms and comfortable beds. Very clean and service was great. Excellent location top end of town.
TIPS.
Ask for a room away from the street - truck noise starts at round 5am
Bfast in the dining room was just ok...on the day we had it food was like warm (bacon eggs sausages etc) - next time I'll use a cafe up the road.
Hotel used by touring companies so lots of overseas visitors in and round foyers 1st thing in the morning can be very busy.

The Vibe Hotel in Sydney is located in 111 Goulburn St, in the heart of Sydney CBD and a short walk to Central, Chinatown, Surry Hills and Darling Harbour.
There's plenty of restaurants, cafés and shops around and the city can be walk quite easily from here.
I booked through the Qantas website and paid $139 including gst for room only and earn 400 frequent flyer points.
The reception and bar-cafe is on the ground floor, staff was friendly and it was an easy and fast check in. I paid for the room online but a credit or debit card is needed to hold a $100 deposit.
In order to access the room and your floor level you need to insert your room card key in the elevator. I like that safety measure in hotels.
The room was clean, modern, fresh and spacious, with a king bed, a sofa, coffee table, desk area, TV , 2 bed sites tables. One of them had an alarm radio clock with an iPhone Dock which was very handy. It charged my phone really quick and it was right next to me so very easy to access.
The bathroom was of a good size and very clear as well, containing a bath-shower with plenty of hot water and good pressure, towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, body balm, shower cap and hair dryer is provided.
There is also coffee and tea facilities, a mini bar offering beer, 750ml bottle of red and white wine, juice, water small and large, no spirits, some chocolate, chips and nuts.
A safety box is located inside the sliding mirrored wardrobe door.
No bathrobe or slippers.
Plenty of natural light through a large glass window overseeing Elizabeth and Goulburn St
One thing that caught my attention was that no top sheet is provided in the bed. There is only a mattress protector, a bottom sheet and a duvet with a cover which I guess that's what it gets changed in every stay and perhaps is a way of keeping the cost down but I do think that a top sheet should be there.
Other than that I did miss not having a saucer or small plate, just because on this occasion I stayed with my toddler and I chopped some fruit for him that could not be placed anywhere.

In all a very good hotel, good prices, great location.

Vibe Hotel is good value for this location. Staff at reception were casual, fun and friendly. Rooms are not fancy but clean and comfortable, and quiet despite being in the CBD so I had a very good sleep. Straight over the road is the historic Crown Hotel which was a good venue for a few beers and watching the State of Origin game.

Great reasonably priced comfortable hotel walking distance to CBD and Circular Quay. Also close to Oxford St and the hipster Darlo set. Parking is available in the carpark across the road. A good value hotel close to everything!

Room Tip: We love the rooms at the back of the hotel which are quieter.

Great location - for both city and attractions, nightlife and felt safe area at night. Liked promity to train station. Large rooms, although I feel the bathroom is looking a little tired.
Reception staff helpful and friendly.
