Really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Chino. Alex perfectly cooked an amazing lamb rump the first night and a beautiful steak the next, accompanied by amazing vegetables. The staff were all so friendly and the room was well appointed and very clean.

we were in town for medical appointments at the PA. Hotel Chino is very conveniently located for this. Our room was pretty good but I would say it was 4-star as advertised. We had no real complaints about our room, the beds were comfortable, the A/C worked well, it suited our purpose.

Not a bad little hotel. Very welcoming chef and friendly staff. Great food in the restaurant. Shame about the road noise. Not sure what the funny smell was on level 3 though.... bit offputting everytime we got out of the lifts. And would have been nuce if the pool was a bit cleaner.

Hi Peter, We couldn't locate a smell on level 3 by Monday but sometimes the lubricant from the lift can escape the gap between the lift and the wall in very hot weather (such as this heat wave weekend!). Unfortunately we can't do anything about this and it only happens in extreme weather. We do apologise (for the weather and...

I arrived hear late after a delayed Qantas flight, the staff were only too happy to accommodate me. A quiet place to stay with a variety of little cafes in the vicinity. The rooms were adequate without being flash.

The studio apartment is good for 2 people and had a lot of room! Free WiFi, Parking and Foxtel Channels were a perk. The bed was so comfy and location was great if you are going to The Gabba or wanting to see Brisbane sights! Had a lovely restaurant downstairs and even does $3.50 delivery :D

Went to see the cricket at the Gabba so this place was great for an over night stop over with the option of early check in for an extra $20 and parking included in the room price unlike many other hotels.
