Plenty of beers to choose from, relaxed and comfortable settings. I ate a good tasty chicken breast burger, it was good. Plenty of chips on the side, fresh, hot and it hit the spot. Service was good, and plenty of beers on tap to choose from, include a few i hadn't heard from before. I popped in on a Thursday... More

This is a cheap..ish hotel but you have to be lucky to find someone to check you in. We arrived around mid day to find the place locked up and no sign of life. Fortunately, someone heard us rattling the door and let us in. He gave us a key and left us to it. We found our way to... More

Hotel Orient is called a hotel but really an inn, upstairs of a local bar even though the location is not bad, with easy access to a lot of downtown places in Brisbane. If you look for signs for a "real" hotel, then you wouldn't find it even though you are almost next to it. If you are prepared for... More

What would have been nice to know was that there was no parking with the hotel. Closest one was a secure parking (costing you $77) across the road, or trying your luck across from woolies. The hotel itself was simple, got a key from one of the staff and made ourselves comfortable. Bathroom is possibly the best thing about the... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! 1. the food was dry and not fresh, had been sitting there for a long time. 2. The 'Manager' it seemed of the upstairs topless bar was absolutely disgusting! The way he spoke to staff and treated some customers was appalling. I have never heard such language spoken to staff...

This is a great option to stay at if you don't want to stay in a hostel dorm room. It is a 10 minute walk from Queen Street shops, the room was nice and comfortable, hot water shower, double bed, with kettle fridge ironing board etc, the rooms are joined to a pub/above a pub which is convenient for food...

We stopped going here for a while as they had problems with the chef but now they have a new chef and for pub grub the food is great. The prices are very good, a big range of beer ,spirits , and wine and generally an old pub atmosphere. Would strongly recommend a visit

The Orient has gone through many hands and has had many re-brandings. I remember it as a: * Mexican Restaurant * Punk music venue * Live music venue * House music venue and I'm sure it was a pizza place for a while, can't remember though. Whatever phase it was in, I always enjoyed the atmosphere and thought of it... More

My partner and I truly enjoyed our stay here, the location was great, the rooms were clean and the prices are great! Very cheap!

Enjoyed a great couple of hours here. Had a bit of an old school feel about it. Staff were fantastic. Unfortunately no beer garden ... Would return without hesitation and next time would try he food which looked delicious.
