Vibe Hotel Carlton Melbourne
Ranked #101 of 161 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed 22 October 2005

Stayed here for 3 nights in the summer. Was recently refurbished at the time, got a great deal off the web for $80 King room. Room was very clean and large, decor was relativley new and looked as though was just purchased from Ikea. The pool was large and basic, nice and cool form the 30+ temps at the time. The Melbourne zoo is 10 mins walk away, as is a golf course. The tram stops 50 metres either side of the hotel, which is only 15 mins into the city and 5 mins to the Queen Victoria Market. Brillant little hotel ideally located and no noise from traffic or other guests. Highly recommended.

We stayed at The Vibe rather than our usual hotel, for 5 days mainly for its location. We booked a 'king room' and were given a room very close to the main reception area. After 30 minutes in the room, listening to every phone conversation word for word emanating from the front desk, we asked to change rooms. The male manager couldn't have cared less and just said "to close the service door in between". It was disappointing that someone staying for 5 nights wasnt shown more interest. Luckily one friendly reception staff girl showed us 2 other rooms on the first floor. This had a king bed (2 singles pushed together) and a balcony. The springs in the bed could be felt and heard everytime you moved and I am not a heavy person. This hotel has a large Chinese clientele. Every morning we would hear people spitting loudly over the balcony into the unfinished pool area below. The hot breakfast buffet, included in the rate, was always floating in grease and one day was completely cold. Lukewarm grey srambled eggs, fruit brought out and then instantly devoured by the Chinese groups and not replaced. Yoghurt always empty. One morning a chef actually appeared and restocked the hot food. Others there also complained about the cold 'hot' food. The staff didnt seem to care. I could go on but this hotel is obviously tailored for tour groups and not individual bookings-beware!

Stayed there twice, both were pleasant experience. Rooms are good and with balcony too ....
Excellent parking area and can get a tram to the CBD pretty easily, the stop is just 5 meters across the road.
