Central location, great room, bed & shower, but

Pros: Room, bed, shower, pool bar, central location
Cons: Fix lift urgently. Streamline check in. Improve decor & crockery condition in breakfast room plus more prominent signage to breakfast room.
Location: Excellent location. Beautiful beach, shopping, pubs, restaurants all very close by. Close to tram, buses.
Room is great; however, it faced the very noisy exhaust vent from building on the other side of the road. Too noisy to sit on the balcony or have the door open. Hard to darken room due to street lights. One lift broken during Games week (very long waits). Pool bar was great, with excellent service. Hard to find breakfast room. Check in was tedious. One man on Reception provided excellent follow-up service, however.

It was great having 24 hour reception to check in late after going to commonwealth games for the day. The staff were friendly and obliging. The view from the café at breakfast was very good

My second stay at the Vibe Hotel Gold Coast QLD . The young woman booking me in was confusing about the availability of my allocated room. I’m uncertain to what the issue was if there was one. She told me she I was given an upgrade . The room was fantastic . Large in size with a beautiful view of the Nerang River . Decor was tasteful , excellent decorating . Bathroom extras were missing such as a shower cap and a new full box of tissues . My first stay the previous year was in a room facing the busy highway in Surfers Paradise . It was rather noisy with the door open . I find the staff at the Vibe to be unwelcoming , not particularly friendly or helpful . The ones I’ve communicated with seem to Be all about just getting you booked in and onto other matters . They are impersonal . It’s not a hotel I feel at home in which is a shame as the River view room is beautiful .

Good location, still a lot of construction work

Staff was quiet rude because I was younger and there was no indication that construction work was still going on and most of the outside sitting area is blocked off. Nice room but still quit dated.
