Backpacking / gap year

Romantic getaway

10 February 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very quiet, very clean, and has a full equipped kitchen. An ideal place if you are trying to escape from the messy, noisy backpackers! 5 min walk to Woolworth, 10 min to China town in Fortitude Valley. Reception was very friendly and had 2 big lovely dog greeters. We even can take a door-to-door airport shuttle at the door. Absolutely loved it!!

Disliked: The only thing needs improvement is the text on the map from reception was very unclear, they were too small and blurry, can't even read the street names.

Liked: Good location, very helpful staff, good value for money. Newly refurbished bathroom very nice as well.

Disliked: Location-wise, it's not exactly in the thick of things but within walking distance of anything you'd need in Brisbane. Close enough but far enough I'd say.

Liked: The staff were incredibly nice and helped us with many things. There are two beautiful dogs that live at the Inn, and they're lovely good-natured fellas who wander through with toys for a little play. Real good location, too. Great place to stay when heading to the Zoo.

Liked: It is really close to the center. Staff is friendly. Nice clean room.

Disliked: There's no free wifi. Room is cold a bit. You can stay in a 2-star hotel in Paris for 2 for 40 euros. This one was 50 for 2 people. Value/cost not the best.
