I stayed a The Portal Hotel for 8 days while on business in Brisbane. The room was small, as noted by other reviewers, although I upgraded to a king prestige room and managed fine. The bathroom was also dimly lighted, also noted by other reviewers, but I brought along a hand mirror and applied makeup by the patio door, so that helped. The bed was comfortable and the room was VERY quiet. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel location was pretty good, just north of the CBD, although it was a steep uphill walk to return ot the hotel. My biggest concerns were: 1. The shower stall smelled like cat urine, apparently an odor coming from the drain, and on some days the room smelled that way. 2. The closet has a refigerator on a shelf at the bottom, which takes up hanging space for clothing. My longer skirts and jackets did not hang straight and got wrinkled. The room cleaning service was a bit sloppy -- I had to request toilet tissue on one day, kleenex on another, batteries for the remote control on a third.
