Chose this hotel as it was cheap and central. Stayed two nights, we had a twin room, it was very good. Clean and tidy, very quiet. Room was on the small side, but we did not need more. Had a basic breakfast at the cafe downstairs, which was ok. Everything is walking distance, very close to Roma St train station,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with three girlfriends for a girls night out and booked two twin rooms. The twin rooms were small but very clean and with everything we needed. The location of the hotel was within easy walking distance to parking, Southbank and Qpac. The beds were extremely comfortable. We all enjoyed our stay and would definitely... More

What a surprise, room was small but well set out and very clean. Things like the full length mirror and hooks on the back of the bathroom door to hang your clothes make for a comfortable stay. Located right in the middle of town just a short stroll to Queen St mall & the Casino, we'll definitely stay here again.

Really impressed with this hotel. Good location close to the shops in town and only a couple of blocks from the station. Although the room was basic it was exactly what we needed, tidy and clean. No complaints at all. Staff were also really friendly.

This is a 3-star hotel so don't expect spacious luxury and king size beds. My room was recently renovated, clean and everything worked. Check-in and check-out was very quick and easy, better than anywhere else I can remember in the past few years. The location was fine for the conference I attended at the BCEC: in fact the walk across... More

This hotel is nothing like the photos. I booked this hotel just because my flight to Brisbane arrived very late and I don't want to drive far, but I was very regret with my decision. The free wifi is a joke. I was told I have to book direct from their website in order to obtain a free wifi passcode... More

This is a difficult hotel to access if you don't know the inner Brisbane City roads well and are travelling by car. There is very little parking at the hotel and nowhere to pull in, drop your bags and get directions to the secure car park a couple of blocks away. Once you make it to reception the staff are...

I got a really good rate and wasn't expecting much. I was suprised - the rooms are clean and of a good size. It is close to everything and the staff were very helpful. Definitely recommend for business travellers with a tight budget.

Our room was small but very clean, linen crisp and white, bathroom clean and easy to get to. Had a fire alarm at 3am and had to run down 7 floors but everything was well signed. Has a really nice cafe attached to the hotel and is very close to all things CBD BRISBANE.
