4 out of 5

Actually at night the shower was too hot - would burn a child. Needs some instruction for dummies who can't change bath flow to shower flow too! A/C unable to be regulated which was a nuisance for sleeping. Big stained area in carpet at entry. That said I would recommend Vibe. Very convenient for tram(but nowhere is it convenient to find the new MIKI tram travel ticket!),good parks, lovely pool and gym. Fresh towels and very helpful staff. Good coffee + newspaper at Cafe. Need to ring ahead and get the drill on bus from airport if that is needed.

Perfect location for leisure in Royal Park, Princes Park or business in Carlton. Plus easy tram access to the CBD. Wonderfully helpful staff at check-in. Delightful room. Would definitely return to the Vibe.

Booking in was a hassle. I had booked 6 weeks earlier, but was still unable to get a room I requested. Terrible lift and carpet in Hallway very shabby. still our room was very comfortable and bathroom and room clean.

We often stay at the Vibe on our trips to the city. It is great to be able to park, have our meals there and relax in a comfortable and clean room. The staff are always friendly and helpful. It's the perfect location for us.

11 dollars per hour for wireless internet? in 2012? you have to do better to find long time customers. apart from that no worries at all.

Room is fairly nice, no views. Temp control on heat, so can be chilly depending on season. Small bathroom. Shower in tub with a half glass, no door or curtain, so cold! Staff is limited and not real knowledgable. No free WiFi even in lobby! $18AUD per hr! They say local calls are free from the room but doesn't mean to cells/mobiles! 4 minute call cost $7AUD! Internet in lobby costly as well. 6 or 7 tram stops beyond Queen Victoria Market. No car and wanting to get to all city areas and suburbs, requires navigate the whole tram and street grids. Near zoo and university dorms, not much else. No shops, cafes or restaurants around except in the hotel which is limited and somewhat pricey.

We have stayed more than ten times. If you have a car but don't want to take it into the city, leave it here and catch the tram in. Ten minutes and you're in. The rooms are a perfect combination of contemporary, clean and great value for money. Get them to cancel your credit card surety immediately upon departure and it is perfect. Other than that and not holding your details for a faster check-in ........... 9/10.

My Husband and I find staying overnight at the Vibe Carlton very plesant as it has all our needs and is close to where we leave our car before flying out to our chosen destinations. Also if we wish we are only a tram ride to the city to take in a show or movie. We certainly recommend staying here.

We have had several stays at the Vibe Carlton which is very conveniently located both near the city and a 15 minute drive from family members we always visit while in Melbourne. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff always pleasant, efficient and responsive. On a previous stay we had a room located near the lift and noisy guests. After speaking to the sarah's member on duty we were quickly moved to a much quieter room. On our most recent stay, we were located again in a very quiet room which we really appreciated.

Stayed here several times. Location is ok, shops and cafes etc a 10 minute walk, tram stops very close to get into the city. I find it very variable some rooms are definitely nicer than others! Reception staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is ok, I wouldn't pay $15 for it though, especially if you arrive towards the end of service. Most recent stay - no mugs, no bread and a lot of attitude from wait staff when we asked for them as it was 20 minutes from the end of service! eggs etc just the dregs left over.

Was in Melbourne for the Aus Open. Hotel was perfectly adequate but not outstanding. Good pool. Location is a bit far from central Melbourne, though I did walk in a few times.

Hotel was comfortable and relatively modern and well located in a nice leafy neighbourhood opposite a park on a main tram route. The only problem was the front faced to busy Royal Parade and traffic was continual through the night. First night was disturbed, the next we were adjusted. Breakfast was mediocre. I would stay again, requesting a quieter room.

Great Motel right on the tram stop. The rooms in the front building are larger and better than the annexe at the back, but have traffic noise in rooms facing the street. Front rooms have two queen beds and an (expensive) mini bar. Breakfast, where included as a package is great, but expensive at $25 if you have to pay.

Got good promo price during GP2012 so I'm happy enough. The only matter uncomfort us was the hot shower system. The amount of water comes out is way to small and hard to adjust the temp. BTW: tram 19 is very crowd in weekdays even weekend!

We have stayed here many times and have always been highly impressed by everything except the occasionally disinterested staff member and the restaurant. It is clean, well maintained, perfectly positioned for public transport or walking, has great parking facilities and contemporary amenities. The pool is delightful and the hum of traffic from Royal Parade is not too overwhelming. Coach tourists can be quite noisy as the hallway/room sound-deadening is not as good as the newest hotels.
