    City centre, near bus and rail, plenty eating and shopping centres. The staff very pleasant and helpful, enjoyed my stay and would recommend.

    None.

    When I booked the hotel the total room rate stated was $93.00, however on checking in the clerk said this was just a deposit and I had to pay another $87.00, making a total of $180.00. For the size of the room and location in Brisbane was not "good value for money".

    Position is great,staff were excellent,made our visit easy.

    An excellent hotel to explore Brisbane from

    Not anything.

    Not very much the room was the worst I have used in Australasia. It was too small for two persons. The only compensating factor was that it was centrally situated. I would not use this property again.

  • Single
    6.6

    Resonably close to city

    A single room with one queen bed was too small. No room to move around the bed. No where to put your suitcase and open it up other than on the bed.

  • Older travelers
    9.4

    It's closeness to cafes and city centre, just a walk down the street. The size of rooms and bathroom. The friendly helpful reception-desk folk. The view from the balcony of the marina across the road.

    The room had two double/queen size beds, but not much chair/lounge or eating space. If there was only one bed in the room, there would have been room for a comfy sofa/lounge to relax on during the afternoon, or whilst watching tv or eating.

    The ideal location and cleanliness of room

    Room be bit larger and better bathroom.wifi should be free to residents. More channels on tv to surf

    Affordable, in the city , good use of space,good staff .

    Would have liked microwave in the room.......would be better if an extra blanket/doona was available in the cupboard (or may be under the bed in a box or something if space was a problem) as at midnights it was cold for me ....if staff could advise the customers about parking and concessions beforhand ,would be appreciable.

    It was honest - it doesn't pretend to be something else. If you are a fan of Formula 1 hotels, this is for you but in the inner city as opposed to out of the way.

    I read the reviews so was expecting to step 1 foot and hit the bed, climb over the toilet for the shower etc. I didn't like footy hooligans playing footy in the corridor at 5 am but it was the night of Origin iii and my reason for being in Brisbane.

    I hope I didn't catch Hep B from the shower and I'm glad the elevator didn't stall. Very stingey on the blankets too! No-one told us that there was no onsite parking either.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Excellent location. Private bathroom in a cheap priced accommodation.

    Room size very small. Barely any space around bed. Something basic & cheap that might work only for short stay.

  • Single
    6.2

    The hotel room was very small. The bathroom/shower was exceedingly small. There was no space for storage of clothing.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Lack of blankets on the beds, noisy location (although it was in the middle of the city) Carpark reccomended was expensive

  • Single
    8.8

    It was great, close to all the shopping areas, made it easiler for me to shop all afternoon long, as I was transitting only, so it helped me alot, not having to ride the taxis back and forth...just shopped, came back to the room, had a breather and was back shopping again..excellent value and location for any traveller...

    Just that it was a tight squeeze when trying to put my luggage in the room and the shower area area was a bit too small, and also just a suggestion to replace the stairs to the lift for a flat walkway , so this can be easiler to pull along the luggage instead of lifting or for any one who is handicap but otherwise all was good...that was just a minor matter...
