This motel were very accommodating when I booked a room last minute due to an unsatisfactory backpackers that I had checked into. The room I booked for 4 nights was unavailable the first night so the staff put me in a bigger room without me having to pay the difference.

The City Palms is a no frills motel, a 10 minute walk from The. Brunswick Street Station. There are heaps of dining options in Chinatown, and as the room comes with a serviceable kitchen including a microwave, so self catering is a possibility. But it's the little things that really impress. There's a spa on the premises and unlimited free... More

The price was right but disappointed that we had to pay extra to have a carpark. There was no street spaces possible in the busy area. Road noise was annoying. When cooking dinner the two of us had to share utensils as there wasn't enough to go round. Disappointing as the BBQ has bottle had run out and when I... More

Great value for Money that's for sure, for $55/night you get a good room. BUT young people parting from midnight to almost day light robbed us of sleep for all 3 nights we stayed there! Party goers constantly running up and down the hall with stereos opening and shutting doors all night. We couldn't ring reception as the room phone... More

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
