We stay at the Hotel Urban over the Ekka Weekend and must say the hotel met all our needs and some. The room was a good size, with a view over the city and the Roma St gardens; with a good size and very comfortable bed. The price of the room was well below what seemed to be on offer at other hotels in Brisbane of a similar standard. We arrived on a Friday night and were delighted to see entertainment in their downstairs bar area, which certainly added to the atmospherics and everyone, including us seemed to be having a good time. The Hotel is very handy to the city centre, no more than 300m and you are in King George Square with access to all the shopping, restaurants, clubs and cinemas. South Bank is a 15 minute leisurely stroll, and longer if you stop for a coffee or bite to eat at one of the many cafe's and coffee shops tucked down the various laneways or drop into one of the Hotels for a light ale.
Back to the Hotel. The service was good, friendly and prompt. The only advice I would provide is be prepared if you drive a car for their car park. The cornering inside the car park is very tight and might challenge some larger cars (ie 4WD), however there were a couple of commodores parked right next to me.
All up, staying at Hotel Urban was a good experience and as I said, handy to everything.
P.S. Don't forget to go for a stroll through the Roma Street Gardens, they are beautiful.
