Positive Vibe about this hotel”
stayed in vibe for 2 days in our tour of the gold coast. we were recommended by friends in brisbane who have stayed before whenever they visited surfers paradise. hotel location is prime, just 5 mins walk to the main streets of surfers paradise. we booked a whale tour by whales in paradise, and the pick up location is just right behind our hotel at titanium bar. bus to the theme parks (tx 2) is also right outside the hotel. very very convenient! my room was huge and spacious, with a balcony view facing the pacific ocean. we could also see nerang river from the left of the balcony. it's awesome to wake up to such views every morning. the room decor is lovely as well; and rooms are clean. staff at reception are lovely and friendly, and would greet you when they see you. however, one of the two main lobby lifts is currently undergoing upgrading and waiting for the lift can take so time, although you might opt to walk behind to their 'spare' lift.
Great service, great room, great view”
The first thing that struck me was the awesome location. This is our first trip to Gold Coast and we have no idea where to alight (took a bus from the airport, bus 702). The bus driver alighted us at the heart of Gold Coast, and to our delight the hotel is right in front of our eyes! We arrived rather early and was given to option to place our luggage at the reception do that we can go shop around first. We checked in around 3+ and was greeted by the most beautiful view of the river. That same river gave us an awesome view of the sunrise, and early trainings of canoeing and speedboats over the next few days. There were several times we had to approach the reception for directions to places like Movie world and Brisbane, or even timings for buses. They were absolutely helpful, providing us very detailed description how we can travel from one place to another. The room is very spacious, and even had an additional bed. There was a balcony from which my partner and I enjoyed several days of breakfast, an electronis safe, hairdryer, ironing board, electric kettle. Basically everything that we might possibly need are all provided, which is a sheer delight. The bathroom is wide and spacious too. The room are always cleaned and tidied whenever we came back after a day of shopping and fun. I definitely recommend Vibe Hotel, and will definitely return there should we go to Gold Coast again.
Wow! Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location!”
This hotel is simply awesome, and for the price we got it for its the best hotel we've been in for Australia. We travel each year staying in about 10 to 15 hotels per year and this one is in the top 10 of our favourite hotels. The hotels location is great for anyone discovering and relaxing in Gold Coast, close to shopping, night life, restaurants and the beach is only a 10 to 15 min walk. The hotel itself looks small and uninspiring from the outside, but once you get in the VIBE really starts to hit you. Really nice layout and decor in the hotel, clean hallways that dont have any nasty smells. The hotel offers a very nice pool, and simply awesome outdoor heated SPA! We loved the spa in the cold August nights (closes before 9 but staff let us use it till about 10ish). Gym also looks ok, but not huge. We never used the provided steam room either. The hotel room itself was very nice, it was the VIBE room. We were on the 15th floor with a very nice view of the beach coast and busy city area below us (looking onto Chevron towers). You can see some water too which is nice (the hotel is located a bit away from the water, on the river), we would recommend the beach side rooms. The room is new, modern and very clean, its really a pleasure to stay in. The only negative we could comment about is the TV and channels offered. The TV is an old CRT and no movie channels offered. There is a pay movie system but its ridiculously expensive. Would be nice to see a small LCD in there with free movie channels like other hotels do. The staff are also very relaxed and helpful, we had a few queries in our 5 day stay and staff helped out each time. We even extended our stay an extra 2 days because the location and hotel were so great, not to mention the super rate.
An enjoyable stay in Vibe”
If any of my friends or family members who want to go Gold Coast for holidays, i would recommend them to book this hotel. The location of this hotel is strategic. It situated near Surfer Paradise which is a happening place. Foods and entertainments are easily found around this area. Most of the places is within walking distance. I can easily access to public transport as well because there is a bus stop right besides the hotel. This hotel provides comfort to my girlfriend and I. The room condition made us a proper environment for sleep and energise us for the next day event. We eagerly back to hotel each time we went back from themeparks in Gold Coast. In conclusion, I can put my thumb up and nothing to complaints for this hotel.
Ultra-stylish hotel with low pricing”
My girlfriend and me chose to stay at Vibe Hotel on last night of our 8D7N Gold Coast-Sydney vacation. We are very amazed with the hotel facilities (kichenette, bath tub, sofa set, etc.) provided and beautiful scenery that our room offered. The queen-sized bed provided was very comfortable and we have a sound sleep. Hugging my girlfriend from back on the next morning while enjoying cool breeze from scenic Nerang River was memorable experience. The hotel is very strategic in location and provide basement car-parking with AUD8 only. We would definite choose to stay at Vibe Hotel when we visit Gold Coast next time.
Very excellent peaceful stay with nothing messed u”
One thing I really appreciate about vibe Hotel over the other hotels is that it maintains a 24-hour check-in-out counter. I arrived at my previous hotel at 6pm and couldn't check-in and ended up spending 2 hours trying to reach them through an intermittent intercom and they messed up my check-ins. However, when I went over to Vibe, they were very professional and clean-cut straight to the point helpful. I really appreciated them for that. The hotel room was nice, view was magnificent for the price and everything was peaceful, clean and satisfactory. If I'm ever going to Gold Coast again, this is the only hotel I would stay at. Keep up the good work Vibe.
A very comfortable stay!”
Frankly speaking, our stay at the Vibe Hotel Gold Coast was a very happily satisfied, cosy and comfortable one. Upon checking-in, we were greeted by a friendly lady staff who gave us a good room on the 19th floor within 5 mins although we reached there at 10AM (way earlier than the standard check-in time). When we entered the room, we had a cosy feel although the room is not very big, it is just enough for 2 persons. They had 2 basins which were convenient for us but the shower thingy is not very stable as it tends to drop down and touch our heads when showering. The river view we had was fantastic, no blockage at all, a clear view ahead which we liked very much. The beds were clean & comfortable and we had no problems at all staying 5 nights there. Location in Surfers Paradise was very good too because it is near a bus interchange. However 1 bad thing is that they offer only free 30MINS wifi per day, which starts at the time of the day when u logged into it and no logging out so its best to use that 30mins up before going elsewhere. Overall, we liked our stay there very much. Thank you for making our trip a pleasant one :)
We liked it!”
We enjoyed our time in Vibe Hotel Gold Coast. The location was quite near the Surfer's Paradise. Nearby was the bus stop to the theme parks. This was very good for the family with kids. And there was the Cole nearby. It was very convenient to get everything we needed in the supermarket. The room was clean. The service was nice. Next time we visit Gold Coast, we'll choose Vibe again!
Vibe; Diamond of Gold Coast”
The rooms at Vibe Hotel is nice clean and with fantastic views, especially rooms with views of the Nerang River. The staff were wonderful especially at check in with thanks to Ms Yuko who efficiently assisted our check in with no problem. When asked directions, the staff were very helpful and courteous. Loved the rooms, decor and the water pressure. Great location with less than a minute walking distance to Cavill Street of better known as Surfer's Paradise. Would definitely stay at Vibe when visiting Gold Coast again!
Friendly service at a busy time. ”
We arrived at the Vibe Hotel on the Gold Coast at a very busy time. It was in the middle of the Schoolies weeks. We were treated very courteously by the reception staff at all times during our stay. We selected a preference for a quiet room with water views (either ocean or river). We were very happy to receive a great room at the back of the hotel overlooking the river. This more than met our expectations as we were only staying just the one night and we were able to get the special deal. We went to dinner at the Vibe Cafe and in spite of schoolies it was very quiet and personal. The young ones were all at the disco next door, I guess.
Great hotel, friendly staff and fantastic location”
The staff were very friendy when we checked in. The hotel is very clean, funky and I loved the colour scheme. The buffet breakfast only cost us $15 (much better than the $27 we were charged in Cairns). Most things stayed the same but they did change from waffles to pancakes to porridge etc. The scrambled eggs were cooked so well. The hotel is close to the main strip in Surfers Paradise, close to the wax museum, bus stop, the beach. We were able to walk everywhere apart from the theme parks and Draculas. Overall it was a fantastic stay and I will be staying there again next time I go to the Gold Coast
Strategic Location in the heart of Gold Coast”
our stay was overall a pleasant one. the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. we got what we wanted ie top floor. we were given 22nd floor with a nice view of the nerang river. more importantly, the room was very well kept and clean. the best to us was the strategic location of the hotel itself. the public bus stop is just right down the hotel and the busses runs 24 hours. appel park where the gold coast tourist shuttle stop is another 20metres away from the public bus stop. finally, within 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel, is where all the fun begins! hard rock cafe, infinity, ripley's believe it or not, haunted house, wax museum, q1 sky point and lots of food joint! it is indeed the place to stay for visitors to surfer's paradise, gold coast
lovely stay and helpful staff”
the room was nice, with ocean view, and you can see the beach from balcony (we stay in 19th floor). it was raining when we stay there, so we can enjoy the rain while sitting in the balcony. Great location, only 5 mins walk from the famous cavil avenue and surfers paradise beach. there's coles near by, so you can get everything from there. Breakfast was nice and the hotel staff really helpful and friendly. A bit worried when the first time we arrive in the hotel (i read lots of negative reviews about this hotel online) but there is nothing to be worried about, definitely will come back and stay at vibe when we visit gold coast again
Worth the money and repeat visitation”
This is the third time my family and I stayed at Vibe Hotel Gold Coast. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The check in and check out was fast and the housekeeping did a very good job in cleaning up our rooms during our stay. The interior of the rooms was fantastic and loved the river and city views. This hotel meet our expectation and we will definitely choose this hotel if we decided to come to Gold Coast again :)
A good 3 night stay”
We went to Gold Coast from North by tram with 2 29"suitcases and 6 more bags. It took us ~10 mins to walk from the stop to the hotel. We arrived ~11:00 a.m., which the check-in time is 2:00 p.m. so we request luggage storage. The staff tried her very best to help us to store our abnormal number of luggages. We requested a high level room for our stay and we were allocated to 16/F with a balcony viewing the whole inland of Gold Coast. Location is a bonus as it can reach most near by attractions (e.g. Surfer Paradise, Sky Point, Crusine trip, etc.) by walk around 10 mins and a bus stop with most buses to nearly all attractions (including all theme parks). For the room, it was clean and big enough for opening 2 29" suitcases at the same time and there are two chairs and a table outside the balcony for you to enjoy the great view. However, there are no Wifi in the room so we had to use Wifi at the lobby which only free for 100Mb/24hrs. A bonus service of fruit flavoured water at lobby made a better experience for us during the Wifi time.
Nice Views Nice Hotel”
It was our first time to Gold Coast and we decided to book aqua view room in Vibe... The surfers paradise stop of Surfside bus services is just in front of hotel gate... Very convenient it was... Area surrounds with lots of shops, malls, superstores, restaurants, car hire and much more... Overall a great stay
Great Location, Friendly Staff”
we stayed for 4 nights at vibe hotel. one hour bus journey from goldcoast airport to the hotel. drop-off at surfers paradise bus stop and walk 1-2 mins to the hotel. dark green color with a big "vibe" word on top, so you can't miss it. the hotel is near the beach, restaurants, and groceries. near the bus stop where you can take the tx2 bus to the theme parks. the room is big and can occupied 3 pax. great ocean view but can be noisy at night (as it is located just beside the goldcoast highway). however, we can sleep through the noise as we are so tired after the trip to the theme parks.
Modern and accessible hotel, good value for money”
Had a pleasant stay in Vibe Hotel Gold Coast. The bus stop is just beside the hotel so it was easy to move around the city and to/from train station, and to/from beach. Garbage collection is a bit noisy early in the mornings. Rooms are spacious/modern. There is a restaurant serving breakfast but we didn't eat there. In room internet charges are expensive but there's free 30 minute wifi in the lobby.
The best experience in Australia”
I didn't expect much with such reasonable price in Surfers Paradise in Gold Coast. We got the riverside view room, so fantastic, the weather, the air, and the soft soft big big queen size bed, plus one extremely comfortable single bed. Very close to beach, no more than 300m.
Clean, Comfortable, Great View, Good Value.”
It was a good stay, the view that I requested was facing the lake canal (basically the back of the hotel) is breath taking. Do request for it. The price would be a little steep but the room was spacious and amenities was there. Fridge, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, tea, coffee, water kettle, lots of wall socket for charging your gadgets. (those who travel a lot with camera, phones, laptops would know how important it is to have multiple sockets) water heater seems a little weird as there's a pulsation of cold water every now and then during the hot bath which is rather annoying. But bathroom is comfortably spacious and clean towels. there's a Plasma screen with local channels and inhouse movies to be rent. (including adult films) front desk staff was always helpful and knowledgeable, attentive as well. Room service was good. you get free wifi at the lobby each day for 30minutes. which i think its a little bit of a downer as most of the hotel offers in room wifi connections. But hey, we're hardly in the room anyways. 24hours convenient stores just opposite hotel and there's lots more in 5minutes walk. Public transport is just next to hotel. Easy to commute. there's buses to airport and it only cost 9aud a person. if you arrange airport transfers it will cost you 22aud. so just take the bus. There's a bus schedule on the bus stop or just ask the front desk. every hald hour there's a bus. that includes theme parks too. you'd save a lot. those who wants to rent cars, there's BUDGET and HERTZ just down the road. 10mins walk. its cheaper to book online first. Check with front desk for location. All in all, I would stay in this hotel again if i visit gold coast. would recommend you to do so.
