I booked in for 7 nights and stayed in one of the rooms at the City Edge and though it was at a perfect location in the Brisbane CBD and easy to get to Queen street and a few minutes walk away from the main Roma street station, it was only just fitted with a queen size bed in it...

We were given a room which only just fitted a queen sized bed in it, and no view out of the window as we couldn't get to it (on the far side of the bed which was pushed up against the wall. We asked to be moved and the next room also had no view as the window had frosted...

I stayed in one of the rooms at City Edge with a friend, and while it left much to be desired, it was okay for one night. The good points: it was very central and easy to get to Queen St, it was inexpensive and clean. The not so good points: the bathroom was tiny, the wifi was extremely slow...

We booked this hotel for 1 night because it was close to the restaurant we were visiting. I just wish we had checked on tripadvisor before making the booking !! This is, without doubt, the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We rejected the first room because it was dirty, the second room was only marginally better. The rooms...

Price-wise, you'll love City Edge Brisbane. Its location to George Street is also brilliant; unfortunately, the hotel is also situated just across the road from the Magistrates Court so the neighbourhood is full of dodgy characters by day, and even dodgier ones by night. We were abused by drunk or high residents several times through no fault of our own....

The rooms were changed twice before we were split into two rooms the air cons facing the main roads were both filthy hadnt been cleaned in years and the bathrooms were the size of a cupboard. The new rooms made up for it but it was hard to control the family split

I arrived the hotel without any expectation because of the reviews written. Yes, it is a basic hotel. 2 star perhaps but I cannot complain. The staff Anjeli, was very friendly and helpful. I arrived at 11 am but was given a room straightaway. It was pouring when I wanted to go out for dinner and was given an umbrella...

A bright welcoming smile as soon as we walked in, later we realised that was the new manager. The room and the bathroom was a bit small, it’s hard to move around, but it’s not their fault. This was the first time we visited Brisbane, the staff recommended few places we could go, and they were all walking distance. Later...

The staff are friendly. The rooms are cleanish. Def just a place to rest your head. Very claustrophobic room with small frosted window with aircon unit outside. Any person above the average weight will not fit in the shower recess. About the size of a campervan bathroom. The room was noisy as its next to an alley way. Trash collection...
