Filthy, dirty, grimy, vial. The walls in the room were absolutely putrid. The chipboard vanity was falling apart. The TV was so small we could hardly see it. The stairwells were disgusting. The signage was wrong. The restaurant was closed. The pool was unkempt. It was very uncared for, may as well have been in downtown China.

The hotel did not look anything like in the pictures. The place is out dated and seriously needs renovating. The internet is extra. I had the most uncomfortable night in my life. Very dark lights, small balconies with no views, long walks and no elevator to higher level. There is not much good things to say. The cafe next door... More

This place may have been fantastic back in the 1980's, but now needs a lot of repairs - the staff told us the restaurant was closed for renovations - but there was nothing going on. The pool was "closed until further notice". Our room smelt like a thousand mice had pooped in it, the aircon didn't work properly, the bathroom... More

I was aware of the negative press out there for this place before I stayed there; some of it is true, but the location and security negates those negatives. Yes, some rooms have that dank smell but the AC removes them. Yes, the drain in the bathroom smells. But for $100 or less all is forgotten. The only really questionable... More

We stayed for one night as a Brisbane overnighter before a morning flight. The staff were great, helpful & assisted us with all our questions. The location is great, walking distance to many great restaurants at West End. This is not a 5 star hotel but good value for money & would choose to stay again for basic clean, safe... More

I stayed two nights and for $80 a night thought it was great value. Staff are super friendly and helpful changing me to a downstairs room due to all my luggage and allowing a later check out. Yes the rooms and outside are a bit dated but it is comfy and clean. The location is excellent with some nice bars... More

Our second visit to this accomodation and the reason we return is primarily for location. Situated in West End at the city end and within walking distance of everything. Our second reason for returning is budget. Although Sapphire could do with a spruce up and clean the rooms are adequate and provide all amenities. There is a cafe in house... More

Ideally situated for any South Bank activity, and an easy walk into the city. We arrived just before the supercell storm hit, lots of rain & hail. The room next door to us was absolutely flooded with water pouring out of the door! Bit of a worry being right next door, but the staff were so helpful. The hotel was... More

We stayed here during our trip to Brisbane and found the place to be satisfactory. The room was your basic bed and bathroom with nothing special but for $90 in this location I cannot complain. You can walk to South Bank and the CBD easily and other than some noisy women in the complex it was pretty quiet with no... More

it was very well located in South Brisbane for where we were going. Clean and tidy. Had problems with lighting Tony came up straight away and fixed the problem. The shower was great and the beds were comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay there again for the price and complimentary car park. Friends stayed at another hotel and had... More
