Close to Brisbane CBD but in a shady neighborhood, blighted by heavy traffic volumes -Rental cost was cheap but with $15/ night added onsite car accommodation- better to arrive via rail, Very difficult to get in {or out} of shuttered driveway by car when checking in- arrive early in day after peek. Rooms shabby but with most items including some... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 days, and the staff was very helpful. The rooms were dark and cold, which made us freeze at night. There was free wifi, but the signal at our room was very poorly. The router was placed in the back at the motel, and we didn't bother to go sit there. There was a... More

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

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

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.

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.
