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

We stayed here during the Brizzy show Ekka week and it was the only place in the city that had a reasonably priced room available with a guaranteed car park space on the nights we needed. If you don't expect luxury then you won't be unhappy, very good value compared to the nearest alternatives. Was an easy walk into the... More

Great location, however thats where the good ends, Upon arrival we were charged $150 for a "deposit incase we destroyed Our Room". We had already paid for the room in full and The receptionist was incredibly rude and unfriendly. We werent told about this deposit prior and the money wasnt refunded for over a month.Terrible service by grumpy employees, rooms... More
