I paid just $89 for an overnight stay prior to catching a train early next morning. Location is very close to Roma Street Station ($6 taxi or 10 minute walk.) The rooms are tiny and I would probably choose another hotel for more than one night. However, my room was clean and tidy with double bed, wardrobe, mini fridge, desk,... More

Clean and quiet, away from the main parts of the city. Still close enough to transport and shops. Room was small but only staying one night so it didn't really matter. Price was low and acceptable, booking was essential for budget.

The rooms are small but so are the prices. Stayed many times by myself on business. No complaints. On edge of city business district close to casino and food outlets etc. Food is OK in cute cafe on ground floor. Desk staff always helpful.

This hotel is very well situated for the city and many of its attractions. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable with en suite , tv , fridge , kettle + tea/coffee/milk. Hotels this close are usually much more expensive ( Mercure nearby) so is good value for money. Tip for travel - use the red river ferry - its... More

Stayed one night. Staff were friendly. I chose this hotel as it was the cheapest around... so the small room and bathroom were to be expected and can't complain. Great option for those travelling on a budget. Close to train station, city and southbank.

Small rooms, with smallest shower ever. Great staff and location. Use con-x-ion for great priced airport transfers. Close to Suncorp stadium and CBD. Lots of great places to eat close by. Average motel when it come to cleanliness.

Tiny room with absolutely basic amenities. I don't think you could get a smaller shower toilet. If you need somewhere to crash overnight, this will do. For anything else, this won't meet your needs. Close to Brisbane Transit Centre/Roma Street Station and the city so convenient.

Travelled in a group from Gold Coast to Brisbane, an hour drive, found the hotel, but hard to get a place to alight and no nearby car park available. Room too small, with very basic facility and they really need to improve the cleanliness.

The hotel is conveniently located in Brisbane's CBD, relatively cheap compared to other hotels and staff was friendly. However, the room was very small, the air conditioning loud and the bathroom was really gross (there was mould everywhere, even on the shower curtains). Definitely not a 3 star hotel (as the sign says outside the hotel). Would not stay there... More

Stayed here for one night travelling through Brisbane. Very small, basic and a little dingy but the location is great and the staff are helpful. If you're looking for city centre on a budget, I'd recommend it. Very close to station and city centre.
