With a very clean and well-built and well-appointed selection of rooms, this was close to 4-star. The bar and restaurant had a limited selection, but the meals were generous and very well prepared. See photo of the Moroccan Beef Salad. Very clean rooms and very good kitchenettes, the only downside was VERY slow internet. Not even up to 1 Mbps.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in Brisbane. Its ok....nothing to write home about - nothing particularly good or bad really - just ok. When you walk into the foyer it looks like its going to be really nice, so its a bit of a disappointment really. The rooms are of reasonable size, they have large floor to ceiling windows and...

We stayed for two nights at this hotel...The location is perfect,less than 10 minutes walking from city center...you can find a lot of nice restaurants and bars nearby. The hotel offers parking too,but it's not free.It costs 9 AUD per night. Wifi is very very poor.We could connect,and that was kind of it. The breakfast was not the best...not too... More

Located close to the underground train station (about a 5 minute walk) and also the river front. However the staff were not the most friendly as you would find elsewhere. Not very keen to help. Not highly recommended

We only stayed two nights and even that was to long. We booked for three people and instead of a standard queen and single bed room, we were given a room with two singles and a sofa bed. The phone inside the room did not work, the air conditioner made a horrible noise, the toilet didn't flush and the toilet... More

My friend and I chose the accommodation based purely on price as funds were limited during our visit to Brisbane. The Astor Metropole was so far below others that we approached with some trepidation wondering just what we were letting ourselves in to! What a wonderful surprise then to find welcoming, helpful and informed concierges! What a surprise to find... More

We had an overnight stay here - chose it as it was close to the venue of our evening out and it was cheap. We came away having relived some scenes from Planes, Trains & Automobiles and our collective sense of humour was given a run for it's money but at the end of the day, it is budget accommodation...

My daughter and I stayed here while attending a concert at Suncorp Stadium. The motel is walking distance from Central Station and the Queen St Mall. It was convenient to walk from Suncorp to the motel after the concert as we were able to follow the crowd to Queen Street Mall. Our room was clean and contained a kitchenette and... More

We only stayed for one night, thank goodness it was not more, The toilet was broken, the toilet roll holder was a bulk dispenser like you find in public toilets, there were no toiletries in the room no shower cap. The soap and shampoo were bulk dispensers and you had to guess which was which, The guest information booklet did... More

Easy to get to, just a 5 minute walk from Central Near Roma street parklands good for running Good sized rooms Good reception and restaurant service Used the pool in the Brisbane weather On the downside, no free internet, and sometimes could hear noise from the common areas with large groups arrive / depart
