It is more for business travel and not really for vacationing purposes. As it is located strategically in the city, you can travel to places of interest as well. Rooms are clean and services are prompt. Very helpful staffs as well. Although it does not have leisure facilities, you can always take a walk towards Southbank(i believe that's what they...

It was really comfortable, clean and in a great location. The restaurant downstairs was great. It had a good atmosphere and did. I would recommend this hotel for a quick stop over in the big city. Waddling distance to Roma Street Station and ask the popular night spots.

I have been here a few times already and have never had a bad experience. I always choose this hotel because of it's location. The rooms are pretty small but comfy. It is right in the city and very convenient to move around. The service at the front desk was usually just ok for the past trips I've had. But...

We had an unplanned layover in Brisbane and needed somewhere central and inexpensive for one night. This hotel fits the bill. $100 seemed very reasonable, to us. There is WiFi, a fridge in the room, tea and coffee making facilities. Yes, the room is on the small side, and the bathroom only has a shower, no bath tub, but who...

We stayed here for a few nights as a couple. My partner had stayed previously by himself and I believe the room is better suited to a single. The parking is mayhem; no way our 4WD would fit. Not sure why they would charge $24 for parking! We had a meal in the restaurant; was simple food and staff quite...

Thanks for the honest feedback Kingaroy_Kid, you are correct in saying that some of our room are on the smaller side, if we are lucky enough to have you stay with us again you should try the Queen Terrace rooms they are far more suited to a couple. With larger cars I would suggest the King George Square Car Park...

Thanks for the review Donna T, you'll be happy to hear that a new café/bar has opened beneath the George Williams Hotel. 51st Street is a fantastic new American style diner that is wowing the locals with their innovative take on casual dining... We all hope you enjoyed the concert!!

Romans are more like airport motel rooms - tiny but clean. First rooms air-conditioned started banging halfway through the night hence no sleep. Avoid room 510. Day manager pretty lacklustre. Disbelieving of the air conditioner issue reluctantly giving me another room. Night manager was great however. Still heard the banging from room 510 so suspect they put another poor sap...

Mark R I'll pass on the great feedback to the night manager, however I am a little alarmed about the service you received from the reservations desk. If you would like I would be more than happy to discuss your experience so that we can ensure that it doesn't happen again.

Was in Brisbane for a week to do some sight-seeing and attend an event at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Center. The room was clean and comfortable so I was very satisfied. The Wi-Fi was fast and stable as well. The hotel is located in the CBD so most points of interests are within walking distance. I arrived at Roma...

Stayed in the queen room and ample space for one or maybe a couple if no luggage as not a lot of room to store things. While clean the shower had no hot water so didn't have to use the cold at all lucky the weather was warm. They don't service rooms that you stay for more than the night...
