We searched for a hotel within easy walking distance of the Capitol theatre for a recent family trip to Sydney to see the Lion King. The best available was the Vibe, and it was indeed within an easy 10 minute walk of the theatre.
Unfortunately the hotel was a disappointment. We drove, and there is no space outside the hotel to pull up (legally) to drop off passengers and baggage. There appeared to be a haze of cigarette smoke to walk through to get to reception.
Security is good in that you need your room pass to operate the lifts. We had a large room, a king and 2 singles with plenty of storage space, unfortunately just a dirty brick wall for a view. Unfortunately the bathroom needed a good clean with some mold remover and the water was scaldingly hot, so take care if you have young children.
Breakfast was included and we were told to go to the restaurant, which we did next morning we were seated and fortunately asked what was included before ordering as we had been placed in the wrong space. A relocation to a back space with a buffet breakfast which was minimal and somewhat disappointing.
This is the older and sadder part of Sydney, next time we will opt to be closer to the harbour and take public transport to the theatre.
There is car parking across the road, $10 per visit per day over the weekend, so very affordable if you leave your car and walk - which we did.
