Vibe Hotel Sydney
Ranked #80 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 31 July 2014

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.

Dear Belinda F,

Thank you for your feedback.
Sorry to read that you were disappointed during your stay with us. In regards to your comment about drop off zone, there is one 5 minute spot just outside, but just being one spot it might've been in use when you got here. When it comes to the smoking, I myself can't wait for the new laws to come in place, where you are not allowed to smoke around areas where food is served. I apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused you.

Please don't hesitate to contact me directly if you wish to discuss any of your points further.

We hope to be able to welcome you back again.

Regards

Hotel had an ideal location, close to china town, world square, shopping and theatre :) Rooms were clean and staff were friendly. Late check out was available for us with no fuss. It was a great value as well! nothing to complain about!

The room was of a tired appearance and was in a need of a total make over from top to bottom. The first room had no light bulb in the bed side lamp and the tv didn't work.bathroom fittings were bent or loose and the room could have been a lot cleaner.

Good location; close to good thai restaurants and the like. I had no particular issues.

I really have nothing more to say - trip advisor now insists on a certain number of characters. Sometimes brevity is better than verbosity

The staff were caring and helpful. The daily room service was prompt and efficient. However the air conditioner in the room was noisy and the toilet / plumbing made gurgling noises frequently.The room was well equipped with a TV, iron and kettle. Overall it was quite good.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less noise from the streets.

Enjoyable stay. Great location, close to transport. Modern facilities with exception of shower over bath in the room I stayed in. Only minor hiccup was in room safe battery failed; however staff were accommodating in advising use of secure facilities behind reception for the time until issue fixed. Will stay again.
