This little place is just great value. Free internet, long office hours and cheap prices are the backbone of this little hotel. It has limited parking, but side street parking is plentiful if you are prepared for a short walk.

I was on my own so chose this hotel thinking it would be a safe walk to the James Street precinct. Its just that bit far out of town up the hill towards the hospital. My room had a generator that came on at 6.30am and it was loud and then kept coming on regularly after that. I would have... More

We stayed here as it was close to the train to the airport and we had an early morning flight. Stayed in one of the back rooms (105) and you'd never have known you were on a busy road. Room was really clean and tidy, bathroom ditto. Paid less here per night than a double at backpackers in the centre... More

Some of these reviews are very harsh! I paid $62 for a double bedroom with ensuite, free wifi and kitchonette - Ie probably the cheapest hotel room in brisbane, and walking distance to the valley. yes it is a bit rundown and yes you can hear some noise, but nothing to stop a good sleep. No issues with the girl... More

We have stayed here twice, for a night out in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. Cleaner needs to use less bleach as the smell was overpowering and be more observant as we found hairs in the bathroom. A few spare pillows would be useful as well..but having said that, it is basic accomodation that serves it's purpose if you intend on just... More

Stayed here for a few nights recently. For the price I think it's pretty good. It's clean, simple. The staff were helpful. The building is cheaply constructed and the interiors and plain. The walls are - as mentioned previously - paper thin and you'll hear every door close and every conversation had in the corridor word for word. A group... More

I stayed at City Palms for two nights. The rooms are nice for the price and facilities are good. I had no issue with the manager like some reviews. They held my bag before check in which was a big bonus! My issues though - Not a big one, but terrible pillows! - My biggest issue was noises. The walls... More

After glowing reviews I have written on this motel, I called to make a booking the other day and found that the previous managers were no longer there. The guy who answered the phone was rude and speaking over me and not listening to what I was asking him. The rate he quoted me was more expensive that what was... More
