Good location, friendly staff. Rooms a bit tired. Radio and TV need attention.
Good to take time to walk along Royal Parade....a quite historical area, and the parklands are well used by walkers, joggers etc.

We have stayed at Vibe hotels and this one has been exceptional to us! The vibe of Vibe Savoy is cool but the Vibe Carlton is fantastic and the people are awesome! We really enjoyed staying here; the rooms are beautiful, the pool and spa were like ours at home, the proximity to the park was rad and the options for getting to the city were super easy and convenient. Most importantly, the staff truly made our experience. They were kind, organized, and very outgoing! They understand hospitality and kept us super happy with simple gestures that made our trip stress free! The reception staff helped us so much! We were able to store our baggage for a few days without worrying about them, they organized our airport transportation, and recommended great bars/restaurants and other attractions! Vinh was so good to us, he shared great wine tips, and went out of his way to be sure that we knew he was looking out for us! We really feel like we made a friend and will absolutely seek him and the other vibe staff whenever we are back in Melbourne! Not only would we recommend this hotel to others- we already have and we came back and stayed an extra night with other friends who also thought the Vibe Carlton was awesome! Thanks again!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful but the rooms with the verandas facing the pool are always nice :)

Lovely hotel! Bed was ridiculously comfortable! Rooms were a very generous size. Would definitely stay there again! Tram station in front of the hotel and everything was in walking distance, especially the Zoo!

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.
