I regularly stay at the hotel in a paddington king room spacious and the beds are great and I sleep so well I don't want to wake up. The balconies are fantastic to get some fresh air and to watch the view. The hotel staff are fantastic very willing to help.

We enjoyed staying here: it's relatively central, shops (inc supermarket) close by, big comfy beds with a pillow menu, quiet (double doors to balcony), sun shades, beautiful bathroom products, and the staff were friendly.

Great place to stay. Very friendly staff and the restaurants are terrific. Beds are most comfortable. I prefer the bigger size room however they are all very well maintained. Having the Valet parking is great too.

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend away to celebrate his birthday. Gambaro Hotel was the perfect place to stay in the city. The staff were amazingly attentive and helpful and the rooms were stunningly appointed. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on! A perfect night's sleep and no street noise at all.

Stayed in the JG Suite, well appointed and very large. Bathroom very well appointed and you can see that quality soft/hard furnishings have been used throughout. Little things like surround sound system with DVD and good coffee making facilities would have been appreciated. Still a great room though.

Gambaros was notably known and still is for the seafood restaurant. No the hotel attached is a great place to stay with a real edgy feel. Rooms are really nicely kitted out and, reception/concierge was excellent. The only critisim is that for two people the room I had could be a bit small. Travelling by myself this hotel is great....

I booked the Hotel Gambaro because it was close to Suncorp Stadium and was a 5 star rated hotel. We had three rooms booked and paid a 5 star price for the rooms. The rooms were fine but staff numbers are low and I didn't get the feeling that service was high on the agenda. There were security staff and... More

Lovely hotel so close to all the good things in Brisbane. Quiet, great restaurants at the door and nice amenities. Only surprise as mentioned by others, the bathroom door, or perhaps I should say grille!
