Second visit to this property and whilst the service remains on top for a three star property, unfortunately this time the room cleanliness and attention to the basics did not. The bathroom was scrubbed within an inch of it life (keep in mind it is an early 2000''s refurb) as were the floors. Unfortunately the stuff in the kitchen needed... More

Wayne and his lovely staff were attentive, friendly and accommodating. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent location and parking facilities. As a flight attendant in the service industry I can sniff good and bad service from a mile away but this motel definitely ticks the box of pleasant and appealing. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone and I... More

Absolutely disgusting! Filthy room. Dirty sheets. Food scraps under bed. Mould on ceilings and walls. Staff dont bother to respond to emails. Staff charged $10 for extra FREE parking. Still waiting on bond. Consumer affairs notified

I wanted cheap accommodation for one night near Royal Brisbane hossie. I was looking for the Econo-Inn where I stayed about 20 years ago. I found it, this is it. I booked a studio room with a shower, and secure parking, and that's what I got. The room has shower, loo, microwave, tv, fridge, phone, free WiFi, airconditioning, a double... More

Stayed for a night to enjoy Fortitute valley Saturday night. Unfriendly receptionist staff and made me feeling un welcomed , but I didn't really think about it much back then because I was too excited to have Saturday night in the Fortitute valley. When I checked out, I asked kindly the reception staff about the security deposit they took from... More

We only booked on the morning we wanted to check in and arrived early and they were very happy to store our luggage for us while we did some sightseeing. Staff were very friendly. Free wifi works well and is great when travelling. There is plenty of public transport within a few minutes walk from the front door. Plenty of... More

The city palms is a decent place to spend some time in Brisbane. It is not really too expensive and is located at a 30 mins walk from the city The rooms are a little bit old and need some intervention, but overall they are clean. The staff is nice and available for every need and also for touristic suggestions.

I picked City Palms as I needed somewhere close to Royal Brisbane Hospital and somewhere close to public transport. I could not have been happier with my choice. They were very happy to store my luggage for me as I had appointments prior to check in. When I arrived back, my luggage was already in the room, which was a... More

Having previously lived in Hawthorne near Bulimba in a nice area, I knew when passing through with friends on our east coast road trip that we should stay in the valley for convenience on the evening. Five of us stayed here and after the reception guy rudely demanded a bond (which took three weeks to be refunded) told us the... More

I thought this place was wonderful. Old Queensland boarding house converted into a unique hotel. I had a single room that had its own balcony but no bathroom, but I rather enjoy going down the hall to the facilities. I used their kitchen to cook a dinner on two of the nights I stayed (5 in total) and I was... More
