              Reception was freiendly

              Room was like a shoebox & spartan

              We chose this hotel because it is close to the GABBA.For us the location was perfect...walking distance.There are grocery shops near as well as public transport with the Brisbane cbd not too far away.So for us it was all about location.

              We had a studio appartment... A bit smaller than expected,but we there one night only so didnt bother too much.

              This was a business trip and accommodation hard to find. Accommdation didn't suit business needs eg. Desk, powerpoints. Overall impression was very dated and a little thrown together.

              Very friendly staff

              There was an odd smell in the room and bugs all over the place.

              easy to find, close to city

              when we arrived we were left standing at the counter for a few minuts along with two other women while the chap behind the counter had a chat with an old friend from england. there were no forks in the cutlery in our room, no iron to iron our clothes with & no ironing board, i had to use the ironing board in the laundry the first day and the cleaner got me one from another room the second day, but the ironing board cover was very dirty. there were only three pillows on the double bed. no where to hang our ironed clothes and a better brand of coffee wouldn't go astray.

              Proximity to entertainment/sporting facilities and the 24 hour Subway close by.

              5.4

              The location was perfect for our activities

              The air-conditioner in the room was very noisy and didnt work properly, our room was very stuffy due to this. We feel the price of the room far outweighed the quality of the room...very overpriced!

              Location

              Size of room & Bed It was advertised as apartment not one small room

            • Group of friends
              4.6

              Location - easy access to and from the expressway. Convenient taxi transfer from city center.

              Standard of accommodation did not meet expectation for the price paid. Certainly does not deserve the 4.5 star rating as advertised. Rooms are small and dated with minimal facilities and services.

              Close to the Gabba

              Noise! The hammering early on Thursday morning, the noisy tour group leaving at 6.30am on Friday morning, followed by the use of power tools. But the highlight was the drunken domestic taking place just before midnight on Friday just outside my room involving people associated with the hotel.

              It was a nice relaxed atmosphere.

              The shower temperature was very up and down. Hard to get even.

              10 mins from city

              Airconditioner was at least 20 years old. fridge was brown (since when did people stop making brown fridges, 1980's?). Windows were left open unknown to us until the last day, but were too high for us to shut so the aircon was pointless cuz kept escaping thru room. shower flooded into toilet cuz didnt have a door. room said had dvd player, but didnt. room said came with a double bed, yet had 2 singles cramped beside eachother. room looked nice on pics but we got the old rooms when there were new rooms beside us with nobody in them

              It was easy to find on the way into Brisbane and parking was avaiable.

              To be woken up by party goers on the way back to their room at 2am and to be woken up by guest that were talking loud and lasted for quite some time at 5am. To ask guest to be conciderate of others. I had a 7 hour drive after leaving the hotel.

              Cupboard door would not close - no handle. Room not touched at all on Sunday.

              It was convienient to where I needed to be located. I was able to leave my bags in the room early even though it had not been serviced?

              Few 'extras' like shampoo, conditioner etc. No face cloth. Room unserviced when first allowed entry but the rom was clean ready fro occupancy at 2:00pm
