Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront, hotel in Darwin

Located in the heart of the vibrant Darwin Waterfront, Vibe Hotel features contemporary rooms with free WiFi and a lovely wave pool, just steps from shops and nightlife.

Hard to say. We felt the room was ill prepared and not as clean as we would expect for the price. One teaspoon for the room - really!! that's BS! I think You Mob need to lift Your game because We think You are using location rather than Perfection as a lure fore visitors.

FAQs about hotels in Darwin








Australia's Cyclonic Cocktail

Darwin displays a cocktail of cultures from ‘Aussie larrikins’ to the local Aboriginals from Larrakia Country. Throw in an influx of international visitors who now call the Top End of Australia home, and this concoction bedazzles with busy outdoor markets and an adequate supply of drinking holes (pubs).

The modern Darwin Wharf precinct, including Stokes Hill Wharf, still gleams on those endless summer days having been rebuilt after the destruction caused both during World War II bombings and Cyclone Tracey. Grab a bar stool with a view of the harbour or a seat on a terrace and sip a cool drink in Australia’s northernmost, tropical capital city.

A popular time for tourists is Darwin’s dry season that starts in May and ends in October. If you prefer it hot and humid, then the end of the wet season can be spectacular when the waterfalls in Kakadu and Litchfield national parks are at their mightiest.

Australia’s wild frontier can be reached all the way from Adelaide and Alice Springs along the picturesque Stuart Highway that ends at Daly Street in the CBD. Outside the centre are the natural surrounds in Palmerston, Humpty Doo and closer by is Mindil Beach with its famous Sunset Market.

Darwin International Airport has international flights from Singapore and Bali. You can choose from a variety of hotels, hostels and apartments on Booking.com.

    Darwin is an easy city to get around.

    Darwin is an easy city to get around. The bus service was easy to navigate and free for seniors. The dining scene was interesting and we had some great meals. Mindil markets on a Thursday was heaving and the food overrated, however the sunset was lovely.

    We loved our trip to Darwin unfortunately we only stayed for four days so were not able to see as much as we wanted to but we still had a good time. We used the free public buses that senior card holders can use and this got us to the Casino, Mindil beach market and Fannie Bay. We went on a sunset cruise on the harbour and took advantage of the free shuttle bus that goes around the waterfront to get us to and from the boat.

    Great town with some good bars and restaurants, the waterfront area is an upper class feel as apposed to down town. Heading out to Berry springs and Litchfield national park is a must do if you like swimming in pristine waterholes and of course going to the Mindil Beach night markets and watching the sunset.

    Darwin winter we found very humid, the heat was expected. City is vibrant with good food outlets, but not a lot catering to Ceoliacs. Street parking, be aware it is all timed meters. Mindil sunset markets are a must go to. Lots of street foods at reasonable prices. Wave pool on waterfront was fun, and reasonably priced.

    Darwin has a vibe, full of lovely cafes and nightspots and a very interesting history from World War 2 and Cyclone Tracy. The Waterfront area is beautiful, lovely well maintained parks and fabulous markets. Evenings, everyone comes out to see the spectacular sunsets over the water. Evenings are warm - people go out walking, outdoor exercise classes and pop up eateries galore. Gateway also to Litchfield, Katherine and Kakadu - what's not to love!

    Apartment was spacious & very importantly clean. It had all necessary amenities as per the booking. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. It was always inviting to arrive to a cool room, after being in the heat all day long! Location was perfect for us! Although it was a hot week - we managed to walk to most places with ease - Darwin City, Waterfront/Wharf, Botanical Gardens. By the time we picked up our rental car - we only needed it for the long trips!

    Was great value for money. The hosts were so easy to deal with and very friendly. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. The view from the balcony was absolutely amazing. Watching the storms roll in from a disatance. So close to all Darwin has to offer. I found it quite convenient and close to restaurants. And the waterfront is a quick scooter ride away. Absolutely loved the stay and have already booked another weekend in a few months time.

    the lobby is nice, clean, and very comfy. the reception is also very friendly and helpful. the hotel room was big as well and very clean. the pool was not that big but the atmosphere was really nice, they provide foam tubes for swimming. if I ever go to darwin again I would love to come back here again :) they also have a lot of scooters in front of the hotels. so it's very easy for the guests to rent it and go around the city with that.

    Relatively cheaper accommodation compared to other CBD hotels in Darwin. It's walking distance to Parap Market and close to the airport. Only 5 minutes drive to Mindil Market. The room is good size for 1 QB and 1 SB. Typical old school motel. Good value for money. Will stay here again if we visit Darwin again.

    I stayed here for 7 nights while the hotel was undergoing major renovations. My room on the second floor was large, clean, the A/C worked perfectly. It is a few minutes walk from the center of Darwin and the neighborhood can be noisy at times and especially during the nights.

    Walking distance from the airport (they also offer a shuttle) so it’s a great option for those flying in or out of Darwin late at night. The rooms are fine, what you would expect for a short stay hotel next to an airport.
