I spent 2 nights in September in room 309 whilst attending Xerocon 2016. The rooms are small but perfectly adequate and great value for Central Brisbane, a pleasant 15 minute stroll from the wonderful Southbank facilities. I will certainly use the facility next time in Brisbane.

Booked in for 4 nights. Yes, the room is very small and basic, but clean and comfortable. For it's location though, and the price, I am certainly not complaining and will happily stay here again. You do get what you pay for, so if you're just after a comfy bed and shower in within a 5 minute walk to pretty... More

City Edge Hotel Brisbane Very UNcomfortable room. You would be more comfortable in a shared dorm in a backpacker hostel - tho five times the price. Doesn't match the photos on the website. This place is a lie. A/C compressor directly outside the barred window. No blanket - two sheets only on bed. The only way of keeping warm during... More

I came to Brisbane for two exams which my entire future career depends on. Due to this reason I decided to avoid the usual hostels and motels which I frequent for under $50 and instead, splurge on a nice room in a nice hotel with plenty of room to study in comfort. We find the place, but there's no where... More

Huge delusion. I stupidly forgot my new (quite pricey) sunglasses on the bedside table of the room, 3 hours later I called the reception to have them back, they just gained time and said to call them later and later, later on I called 4 times, the last time I did they refused to admit my sunglasses were there.

We only stayed for a few nights. The rooms are not at all as bright as what the pictures make out to be, and the rooms are not that big either. Avoid anything near the lift, rooms 101, 201 and 301, as all you can hear is the clunky lift every time it's used. During our stay, housekeeping didn't visit.... More

I found this hotel adequate for a short couple of night stay. It is central to the city and a short walk to the Roma Street transit Centre. I booked a double room although I was travelling solo. The room was small but at the price reasonable. There is airconditioning, tea and coffee making facility and even a micro wave,... More

The room was very small, the picture on the website made the room look bigger than it was. The bathroom/shower recess was only about 3 feet wide and had no shower curtain, a larger built person would struggle to fix in the bathroom.

The photo in the ad on booking.com made this room look spacious and warm-yellow lit. Instead it is fluro-lit and very cramped. The shower and toilet are extremely close together and there is no shower curtain or barrier. I wasn't able to sleep and neither was the person I was sharing a room with due to the very uncomfortable pillows... More

Very basic accommodation, poor service and very small rooms for price. Was moved due to cleaning fluid smells. 'Superior' room cost $20 extra per night but air conditioning very poor and still basic. Wifi was supposed to be available but could not connect to it. Charged instead of pre-authorised amount, still not refunded extra charges. No communication from management. You... More
