Good Location

Location good, just off Queen Street for shopping convenience and a stroll to the waterfront. But location not good for sleeping at night due to the hotel being opposite the bungy on Victoria Street. Lots of screams until late at night even though we were on the 7th floor and despite the fact that I had asked for a quiet room. Staff did not have English as their first language so communication not good on arrival but they were trying to be friendly at other times. Room was also cold and so we had to crank up the heat with the noisey fan heater. Positive note is that the room and bathroom was very clean and bed comfortable. Bonus was the breakfast included in the deal. We would probably not visit this hotel again though.

Poor customer skills

When I arrived I realised I had made a booking for a weekend later than intended. the staff/ Manager instead of helping blankly said there was nothing she could do to help, it took five minutes of bargaining with them to find out that I could call the travel booking agency to fix my mistake. I ended up paying an extra 50 dollars for my mistake but when I realised how much I had spent in total, I could have stayed at the Skycity for the price I paid. My room ended up being next to a air-conditioning unit that sounded like a truck next to my window which ran all night. It was the worst stay I have ever had at a hotel. In the morning they didn't ask how my stay was which I assume is because they don't want to hear all the complaints. I would not recommend this place at all due to bad staff and bad rooms

Very Central

Great location in the middle of city. Park the car and walk to restaurants, shows, casino, ferry wharf etc. Book car park in advance as only limited spaces. Room and hotel OK and maybe could do with a make over but comfortable especially for the price. Good value if you plan on only sleeping there but want to be central.

Good Location

We arrived at midnight from Brisbane and was let in and checked in by a very helpful man on the front desk. Next day the front desk staff were very helpful in assisting us with booking a hire car. As we were happy with our stay we have now rebooked to stay another 2 nights at the end of this month.

Travelling Young Couple

My fiancé and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. We were currently travelling and the location was perfect as a base. The room was just perfect for us, with a king comfy bed, clean all around, TV channels, a small yet manageable gym which we used daily, a Countdown supermarket next door and a kitchenette with the right equipment that helped our self catering weeks stay. Also our view was great! Perfect view of the Sky Tower. The only negative we would say was our room wall was right next to the lifts and we could hear them all night long as they are on automatic going up and down. Also some of the staff confused situations at times, although the other staff were great! We would defiantly stay again.

Location, location!

I stayed one night to go to a show at the Civic with my teenage son and the hotel exceeded my expectations. The pricing was fantastic and included full breakfast. The room and bathroom were more modern and cleaner than I had expected at this price. It's a noisy location but I had anticipated that. There is also a small gym with hardly-used equipment, that was an added bonus. Really close to the sky tower, Queen St and all the eateries on Elliott St. I will likely stay here again, but probably not for more than a couple of nights.

Basic but all you need

The hotel itself is fairly modern clean and tidy. Staff are happy to help and extremely polite and friendly. The room we stayed in was pretty basic and space was a little cramped, but it was also spotlessly clean and well layed out. Our room was facing the reverse bungy, but we did not find it overly noisy at all. If you are planning on being out and about most of the time, the low price room is fine as a place to lay your head, but I would not recommend it if you intend on spending a lot of time in the room. The location is perfect if you're wanting to explore Queen Street (as we did) and there are shops and restaurants to accomodate anyones tastes all within walking distance. Public transport is very easily accessible with Britomart a short walk away, as well as the airport bus. Also the Sky Tower is mere minutes up the road. If I had any complaints, it would be that there is no free wifi, there is no mini bar and no information about local restaurants or places of interest. Other than that we had a lovely stay, and would definitely stay again.
