A few weeks ago I stayed here for the third time. The location is perfect.....close to Queen St Mall, the River Cat, galleries, and a short walk to the Transit Centre. The restaurant attached is great, with friendly staff and there is a 7Eleven beside that. The Hotel staff are helpful and my Queen size room overlooking George Street was... More

I stayed for two nights. The room itself was nice. The air con was a bit noisy, but that happens. I checked in about 10 in the evening and asked where I could go and get something to eat and was told Pie Face across the road! The day time staff were far nicer and helpful. My room was on... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights with my sister. We booked a twin room which consisted of two single beds pushed along the wall. It was a very small room, the air-conditioner occasionally dripped water on my bed and the bathroom is starting to look a little dated and has no bench space. Also for... More

This hotel surpassed my expectations, it's very convenient if you have an early appointment in the city, it has a central location and is close to transport links. There is also a taxi drop off area in front of the hotel. The room was a good size, had a convenient small fridge and a desk suitable for study. The literature... More

The staff working at the Evening was really snobby and had no service mind at all. The booking only included one breakfast even though we were two persons in the room. We had to argue with the staff in order to get it for both of us. The older lady WHO worked in the morning was much more helpful. Otherwise... More

Dear Charbel A, Thank you for providing your feedback. We are currently working on our online breakfast inclusion. Unfortunately most booking websites cannot include breakfast per person, so we include it for one person with the option of upgrading to a second on check-in, this is shown on the websites, some clearer than others. This is to ensure we are... More

If you want somewhere reasonably economic to stay in, the hotel is well placed for Brisbane City Centre. Just around the corner from Queens Street and accessible to South Bank, and around 10 minutes walk from Roma St station.

The room was an unusual shape but clean with a nice view across Brisbane. The staff were friendly and I had no problems during my stay. A nice restaurant adjoins the hotel and serves great food at a good price.

We stayed in this hotel for one night when we visited Brisbane recently. It definitely wasn't the worst hotel I have ever stayed in but I have also stayed in nicer places in Brisbane.

We stayed here for three days. As other reviewers have mentioned, location of this hotel is great. The rooms are quite small but comfortable for short trips. It might be little difficult for families and people on long trips though. The only reason I am giving this a four star and not three is that the staff here is excellent!
