Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - The Star Rating for this Pullman Hotel are very small in deed.
No way that the Pullman Brisbane King George Square is a Five Star Hotel - do not be fooled by by the rating, this is maybe a Three Star at best, an old hotel with a rating way beyond the stars.
The room I was given was darkish and dingy, small too by a Five Star Standard, very dated, the bathroom was gruby, the grout between the tiles in the shower had not a good clean in a very long time, no complmentary tooth brush or razor, no free wi fi or internet.
A good location, but expensive, service or the lack of it is note worthy, asking for a taxi and being told there is Taxi Rank out on the street and pointing to the vehicles parking lot out front (none of which were taxi's) is not very professional for a Five Star Establishment, having drunken youths running wild in the reception area and no sign of security is not what I expected either. Being told at the front desk that the elevators are down there round the corner is not what I expected either, no offer of assistance with baggage, not what I expected either. A very noisy crowded bar called the KG Bar with drunks falling over one another, again no sight of security. I have to wonder why a Hotel is given a Five Star Rating and charges Five Star Prices for belonging to an Exclusive Hotel Group. We did not eat there as we were informed at reception that the Hotel is rather full and the dinning room is too busy, you could try room service??? No thanks took a short walk for take aways.
Been there, done that, ticked it off and am over it - wont be back.
