We arrived after 6 pm and were well looked after, a keen price, friendly staff were very efficient. Room was clean, Warm and comfortable. Car parking was easily accessible under the building, with a lift to reception. The building was a little older but maintained well. Many things were within walking distance including the CBD, China Town, restaurants. In the... More

Good position to city centre, room clean but needs an update. If you don't like lifts you certainly won't like this one, it's quite scary!! Restaurant no longer open except for breakfast, which is a shame as it is quite nice in there.

Stayed here one night, I chose this place due to price and location, the staff very friendly and helpful, I was in a room away from traffic noise which was good, the bed was comfortable, only complaint would be the lift, I could hear it banging and clunking it's way up and down,even from my room. Besides this the room... More

I stayed at this motel as a result of a booking from work. The location is central to Brisbane City and well positioned to restaurants. My first impression of the premises was not positive. I thought it looked dated and more of a backpacker-style. After more reflection, this is a very tidy motel. Certainly not five star, but comfortable. My... More

I have stayed here several times now and I am starting to doubt some of these reviews. Once again I found the reception staff (in my case Michelle) very obliging and friendly. Michelle was also understanding and receptive to my needs. She was one of the nicest people of I have ever met. I am a transgendered person and sometimes... More

Look, you want The Ritz for a squillion dollars a night? The Metropolitan isn't it. The lift is noisy and clunky. However, the reception was terrific. I cannot say enough about Michelle. So helpful! So were the breakfast people. The bed sheets were clean, the shower hot, the breakfast enough. There are two pubs both within fifty metres walking distance... More

Stayed two nights on a girls trips away in December - We should have spent $100 (for both nights) to go elsewhere - anywhere. The lift worked the first day (but should come with a warning - it stopped so violently that we joked 'brace for impact') - didn't work the second day. Our room was basic (and we paid... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over a long weekend in Brisbane. Although old-fashioned and need of upgrading, our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and it had everything we needed. It was a spacious room with a good sized en-suite. The shower was pretty good although we didn’t get any more shampoo once the tiny bottle ran out... More

Fantastic staff...... who have made me feel so welcomed back here. Whilst this place is not the ritz, the staff make my stay comfortable as possible. It is close to the city and it has a free bus run on week days! Restaurant steaks were great.
