The lack of hot water (none!), the lack of shower curtain (none!) and the fact that it was well known to staff who still allocated is the room, has ensured we won't be returning. The bathrooms need a massive upgrade, circa original backpacker style 1970. We were simply looking for a cheap and cheerful accom option for our city adventure,...

This place is so basic and for us we had fly buys so it was clean and ok. My biggest complaint was the noise. We had four nights and EVERY night at 4am we were woken by garbage collection in the lane. We were exhausted. Small was certainly true. Shower was ridiculous. They cater for Asian visitors but not Aussies....

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...

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...

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...

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. I've...

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....

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,...

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 carpets was old and dingy and had not been cleaned for a long time. there was...
