Clean rooms great location, close to uni, Princes Park and research institutes. Friendly and very helpful reception. Breakfast was good but staff were not coping with the number of guests. The excuse that "we are busy" is not an excuse for leaving the tables dirty for the next customer.

Handy for access to Melbourne Zoo. Rooms are clean and do the job. Access to some rooms are outside and would be tricky on a wet Melbourne night, especially in winter. Staff super friendly. Will stay again.

Good spacious rooms and generally clean. We were very disappointed to find no dining service available on Fri or Sat nights which we were unaware of at time of booking (no reference to this on hotel website)

Helpful staff, convenient location, rooms clean and tidy, good showers and off street parking. Very handy place to stay if you need to come into Melbourne. Just out of town but with very easy access. Pillows were a bit low

Rooms were more than adequate. Roomy with extra seating. Tramline right outside. Staff went out of the way to print off instructions. Good empathy. Breakfast staff particularly friendly and helpful. Nothing a bother.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Carlton Vibe to attend a conference at International House and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is in a convenient location, with the tram stop just metres away. My stay was very comfortable and the staff as always were extremely helpful and pleasant :)

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and spacious. The location was great with easy access via tram or taxi to the centre of Melbourne. We had the hotel breakfast every morning which was great value.

This hotel is in a great location. Excellent staff. Room was clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable. I would definately stay here again. It is so close to the tram line and is an easy walk to Sydney road cafes and pubs.

The property is located on royal parade opposite the Carlton footy club. It is old, however, is clean. There is a restaurant, however, it was not open on Saturday. The room was small, however, the room was clean and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom was pokey, and there was rust on the joins of the shower recess. There...
