We stayed in Glow Trinity complex in Jan 2013 after having it recommended to us by a friend.
The area is great for getting around and there are great markets and shops nearby. However it was some of the smaller details that let the place down for us.
Firstly, the building wing we stayed in wasn't quite finished when we got there and we had to be escorted though a type of building site before we could get to the lift.
The room was on the 3rd floor, and was quite roomy. Except we had an awful view onto what was essentially a dumping site from the dilapidated residential building beside the hotel. It was so bad that we had to keep the curtains closed the whole time. It was quite disgusting.
We were missing bed side tables, the TV had poor reception and limited channels, the shower was not waterproofed and flooded the bathroom each morning, the air-con unit was massive and very noisy but not very effective.
The noise transference between the rooms was also very poor. We could easily hear other people's air-con units, TVs and music throughout the night and if you want a sleep in then forget it as the noise of the cleaners around 9am outside the room is very disturbing.
The staff were very friendly and nice though.
If you're on a budget and want something lower-middle range that's clean and convenient then Glow would be fine. But for $AUD 80 a night you could probably find much better rooms.
