Compared with other hotels in its price bracket, this flagship Vibe Hotel on the far side of Kings Cross really is a bargain, especially when you book online. Standard rooms are a reasonable size, and I love the rooms’ brightly accented and colorful—well, yes—vibe. All rooms have king-size beds (which split into twins if necessary), and families can get connecting rooms. The hotel has a good cafe, called Curve, a heated rooftop swimming pool, and a good gym.
