The room was warm, clean and comfortable. Some staff, particularly in the breakfast room, were very friendly, warm and welcoming. Also some great desk staff on Reception. But some desk staff needed to learn their manners and look up and meet and greet guests as they come and go in the lobby, rather than staring at their computer screens constantly. Hospitality is the name of the game.
Very convenient and handy suburb with good tram services. Also in a very pleasant area of Parkville/Carlton. I will go back to stay here when I attend the same annual Conference next year.
Just one really petty thing - I know that some travellers only want a bath, but is it time that hotels offered step-in showers in some rooms and baths in some other rooms??? I am finding at 60 that I am a little worried about stepping over a bath to have my shower when I am not used to that at home any more. I think that, as the Baby Boomers like me age, there should be an option to have a room with "Shower over Bath" or "Shower Recess only". One possible problem otherwise is litigation, as the hotel industry could have claims for more and more falls resulting in broken hips, arms, legs etc, unless they begin to provide more easy access shower stalls.

Great spot. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable rooms. Looking a for good hotel that is not too expensive and in a lovely part of Melbourne. This hotel is a great wee gem. Problem with the shower tap though, but nothing a plumber could not fix!

Great on site parking at reasonable rates, public transport on the door step. Rooms are clean and tidy. Check in and out done quickly and staff were very friendly and helpful. Bit disappointed with the breakfast selection.

Great location. Make sure you Myki is topped up for travel on the tram as the nearest top up is a fair walk. No convienent dinning close by.
We found the staff very helpful, the room warm, tidy and clean with no road traffic noise.

Dear Leanne R,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Vibe Hotel Carlton. We sell Myki cards at reception for new travellers however if you have a current card requiring money to be placed on it the 7-11 is a short 10 minute walk towards Sydney Road.

We look forward to welcoming you back next time your in town.

Many thanks,
Jayde Turner

We were very impressed with the staff when our daughter stayed here on an Eastern States school trip last week. She lost her retainer and Tina at reception made several calls to housekeeping and the laundry service to help locate it. She spoke with my daughter and also kept us updated in WA. She was very understanding of the situation, with us being so far away. The retainer was later found in the room, so no lost property after all.

Our daughter felt comfortable in this hotel, and found the room to be spacious and clean. Thanks for your assistance with this, Tina.
