A recent change in management has destroyed this economical choice of accommodation in the heart of Brisbane. The new management are completely irrational and are looking to save money at every opportunity including room fridges and air conditioning. They impose unrealistic conditions for security deposits and are unwilling to discuss any compromise. Do yourself a favour and stay anywhere else.

We arrived early in the morning after 30 hours flight back to Australia. We planned to stay in Brissy for 2 nights before heading home. The friendly staff at the front was very caring, called the housekeeper to have to room ready for us ASAP. Within 20 minutes, we checked in! Will come back again when we visit next time....

We arrived at this accommodation only to find it is on a one way street leading to Turbot street and you can't park anywhere near reception as it is in front of a yellow line even though they say it is clearly mapped out on their website. It must be in the samll print. Reception don't care to tell you...

Good location, close to everything in the city. Walking distance to Southbank, valley etc. Clean room, comfy bed. Only really good for a one night stay as the room and bathroom were minimal size which we weren't aware of but okay for the night we needed a bed and room with air con.

Room was small, but cozy. We only needed a place to sleep. In the centre of the CBD! Walking distance to Eagle Street! Shopping malls, bars, restaurants. The stuff are so helpful, patient & energetic, enjoyed having a chat with them. They helped us to print maps.

Not happy staying at City Edge Hotel. Looked ok on WOTIF but disappointing on arrival. Family room was a windowless internal room with a pokey shower. Double bed was two singles pushed together. Similar priced hotels in the vicinity would serve your family better.

Tiny rooms, basic amenities, but convenient for the location and fine for a quick stay where you won't be spending much time in your hotel aside from sleeping. Walking distance to Queen street & Southbank parklands.

Room - extremely small then I upgraded to the executive suite that was Tiny for what the name stood for. This hotel needs to renovate really badly... The toilets and shower are dirty with hair all over from the last guests and I don't believe the staff even washes them for the next guest.... The décor is old fashioned to...

The room was very clean, but very small, everything was bright white, again with everything you need....Wi-Fi TV , toaster and microwave... Breakfast was an odd choice, cereal or toasted chicken sandwich. Tea coffee or juice

Executive Double Room - I would be worried about what a standard room was like. This room was very small. Just enough room for a bed. The bathroom was very old fashioned but it was all that was needed. If you are wanting a nice night away, I would suggest looking elsewhere for the money you pay to stay here.
