Plot twist: Vibe Carlton is actually in Parkville. Regardless of its tricky name, this place ticks all the boxes an affordable hotel should. A modern fit out tips its hat to the 1960s with splashes of colour and neat rows of balconies facing the Palm Springs-esque pool. Located outside of the city centre, the hotel is a great choice for exploring the joys of the inner north on foot. Join skinny-jeaned day drinkers in Princes Park, hit up the old school pubs on Sydney Road and or have a coffee at locally-famous Rathdowne Village.
Time Out tip: Vibe Carlton is only a short walk away from Melbourne Zoo. Book a Wild Encounter experience to enjoy an unforgettable breakfast with koalas, a behind-the-scenes look at the gorilla habitat or a close-up encounter with a family of adorable meerkats.
