I try to be fair but thought calling this place a hotel was stretching things a bit. I would put it in the hostel/back packers catagory - as such it is expensive for what you get.
Reception was helpful and gave me excellent advice on the phone when I was trying to locate them and the best manner to get there from the airport (incidentally, if you are reasonably fit, get the train to Fortitude Valley and walk up the hill !! - I got ripped by the taxi)
The bed was OK and I didnt get bitten
The shower and tea making worked
The WiFi seemed to magically disappear every time you locked onto it (6 zones in one place!!)
The rooms and general ambiance is "run down" , wall mounted A/C that may have worked if the socket it was supposed to plug into worked.
The biggest turm off for me were the paper thin walls - a sure sign of cost cutting during construction - and it shows - I didn't really expect to go to the toilet and "mid flow" feel like I was in the middle of the next room when they started chatting - embarrasing or what?
If you are under 30 and/or on a hen or stag event this may be for you - otherwise I would recommend paying a bit more and finding somewhere else.
