“Really good service and comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2011

I stayed at this hotel for two nights after getting a great deal online although I chose the hotel mostly because of its location opposite the Southern Cross station. What a great choice and one which I will repeat in the future.

From the minute I entered the hotel the service was great and went beyond what was required. As an example, I was very jet lagged and confused with directions despite knowing the area reasonably well so asked the doorman where to get a taxi to Melbourne Central. He advised that at that hour a taxi would be almost mpossible and advised taking the number 86 tram. He then escorted me through the alley to the tram stop and had the driver open the doors again to allow me to ride.

My room was probably the best I have had in any hotel in Melbourne previously. The hotel is very old but has been renovated without diminishing its special features, even in the rooms. My room, 914, was probably one of the smaller ones but was size adequate and tastefully furnished with a bar fridge, ironing gear and the usual bathroom amenities.

The breakfast room on Level 2 was very pleasant and the breakfast itself very good at a cost of $22 - $24.

Broadband and wifi was available in the rooms at $12 for an hour and $22 for 24 hours. I usually stay at hotels where this is included in the room rate so I thought that this was a bit pricey.

This hotel will be my first choice for my next Melbourne visit.

Stayed there twice over the past few years, and was not disappointed by the experience, (and I am quite hard to please); I would definitely stay again. Check in was friendly and fast, and the room had everything one needs for a city stay. The king sized bed mattress (we had a free upgrade from a queen) was really comfortable.

Location is right opposite Spencer Street Station, with the discount retail outlet next door, so it's great for shopping. We walked into the city (5 minutes away) for an evening function, though you could easily hop on a tram.

There's a buffet breakfast available for $20 per person, but we didn't have this as didn't really fancy hotel food, so we walked 5 minutes to Flinders Street and found a lovely little cafe called Five66 where we had fabulous coffee and potato/leek rosti with poached eggs and smoked salmon - I recommend this place as well.

Check out was just as quick and easy. They charge $30 for valet car parking.

i had 3 nights at this hotel. My stay was amazing, the hotel reception staff were very polite and could not do enough to help. The happy hour in the cocktail bar was awesome, something special. The breakfast was expensive so never had a meal there, but you do get lots of nibbles at happy hour! The room was HUGE and the bed very comfortable, overall l could not complain as it is across the road from Southern Cross Station and shopping was great! I will return as l found it very reasonable in price on their own website, and friendly and clean. What more could you ask for!! I will look forward to my next visit to Melbourne and the Vibe Savoy!

Stayed one night with my son as part of a package with Eminem tickets. Were on the 11th floor with no view looking into the middle of the building very quiet thou. Room was fairly large and comfortable but nothing spectacular.

The location is great as was a very helpful front desk staff but doesn't overcome the subtractors.

For the cost of this level of hotel I would expect:
Free WiFi in room.
Internet connect in the business center that is faster than 56k modem dial up.
Ceilings where the paint isn't peeling.
Duvets that aren't frayed and a minimum of 6 years old.
"View" from my 11th floor room was less of a view and more of a glimpse. Don't advertise what isn't there.

Might be worth a $100 dollar a night stay if I was tired but at this cost you have expectations that just aren't met at this establishment.

Room Tip: Go a little further from Southern Cross station for actual value for your money.

Thank you for taking time to provide feedback about your recent stay at the Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne. The hotel does offer WiFI and a business centre for the convenience of our guests, however these services do have a nominal charge to them. I do apologise that the room you occupied had some minor housekeeping matters, which I assure you I will address with the relevant department. I trust your recent experience does not tarnish your overall view of the hotel, and I welcome you to contact me at the hotel to ensure your future stay is more comfortable to your needs.

Staying in this hotel for almost a week, found the location excellent being accross the road from Southern Cross Station, walkable to other attractions. The breakfast/dinner prices are typically overpriced for Hotel's so i never had a meal there, rather being able to simply walk accross the road or a block to a nice a cheaper restaurant.

Room was excellent, spacious and clean.

Overall i would say this would be a typical nice hotel, you will feel comfortable but won't remember this as the best hotel you have ever stayed at, there is nothing special or unique about it.

Great location right across road from Spencer Station, large rooms with heaps of character and well decorated etc. Suprisingly quiet considering the location so no worries there either. I have stayed her a few times this year and am always happy with the hotel. Probably the best quality/value around.

Room Tip: ask for a corner room
