Great place to stay in Brisbane CBD
Had a few problems with the booking thanks to jetstar canceling our flight last minute and leaving us stranded however, managed to sort it out with excellent communication. Requested our favourite room without any problems. All good as per usual. We will be back next visit.

2/10 Poor

The 2 bedroom apartment we checked into had a very aggressive smell to it, the kitchen floor was sticky and there was mould on all the curtains & blinds, ceiling and walls. the kitchen hadn't been cleaned in years. The bathroom was in a bad way, not clean and not looked after. broken soap holders, rusting shower screens tiles missing. We asked the reception to come up and clean the floors et c but the smell and mould were still there. The hotel was full so they couldnt move us until the next day. We asked other guests in the lift about their rooms and they reported similar. The hotel is central and the bed was comfortable. I would never ever return to this hotel.

Apartment was pretty dated. Booked for 2 adults and a child but when we arrived there was no extra bed, upon asking this was a $49 extra charge. This should've been included in the price expedia quoted.

10/10 Exceptional

I enjoyed being shrrounded by tall busy buildings with people in them. I found the construction sight beneath me interesting the big machines working through the night. Something i have never seen before the under structures that hold buildings and infastructure built above. I found the constant noises is what makes a city somewhere u can blend in easily cos people are busy working or commuting to workfor a purpose. Because they have a job to get to so i tried not to interupt them cos i dont have one.
