I am currently a guest at The Vibe and am writing this now even though my stay doesn't end until 2/11. Let me start with the good things. The hotel is clean, trendy, and in a great spot. The rooftop pool is extremely small but very cute. Fitness center same... Small but adequate. The location is within the 3.5 sq miles of Sydney so tou can walk to everything and/ or hop outside and across the street catch public transportation. Ok, good things stop.
Bad - the hotel gouges it's customers on everything. The Internet is $24.95 for 24 hours so I'm actually writing this from the FREE wi-fi on George St... 4 blocks away. A bottle of water is $6.50 and to dry clean a dress shirt is $26. I've never in my life seen prices like this. Also, our view is of an abandoned building with broken windows... Not my dream view for my honeymoon. We got a 2-twin bed room, obviously their error, and it took an hour for someone to come up and "fix" this... Yes, they simply pushed them together to make our "king". We called for a bucket of ice and they were out of buckets! Therefore, we had to walk down to the bar and get a martini shaker full of ice. If we would have had it sent up, it was $3. Also, be prepared to pay a bond when you arrive. It is supposed to be refundable. Ours was $100.
So, this is my info I have for now. I've only been here one night and I hope it gets better as we have 5 more ahead of us!
