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...

We always stay at City Edge whenever we come to Brisbane, previously called Explorers Inn. This location & this price range, we cannot complain. We like to spend more money to wine and dine. Yes, the rooms are mini, but we can have privacy rather than staying at a backpacker’s hostel. The staff all know us well, we’ve had lots...

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...

We arrived early in the morning after 30 hours flight back to Australia. We planned to stay in Brissy for 2 nights before heading home. The friendly staff at the front was very caring, called the housekeeper to have to room ready for us ASAP. Within 20 minutes, we checked in! Will come back again when we visit next time....

We arrived at this accommodation only to find it is on a one way street leading to Turbot street and you can't park anywhere near reception as it is in front of a yellow line even though they say it is clearly mapped out on their website. It must be in the samll print. Reception don't care to tell you...

Good location, close to everything in the city. Walking distance to Southbank, valley etc. Clean room, comfy bed. Only really good for a one night stay as the room and bathroom were minimal size which we weren't aware of but okay for the night we needed a bed and room with air con.
