I arrived late into Brisbane thinking what a fantastic location I have, I'll get straight off the train and across the road will be my home for the week. Wasn't I in for a treat.
Walked into the foyer that wreaked of rubbish, checked in and into the lift to a further stench that got worse the longer you were in there. Arrived at my designated room, opened the door and was greeted with absolute filth. Now there's a difference between dirty and filthy and I can say this was both.
The carpet didn't look like it had been vacuumed or shampooed since day one. Looks like someone had spilt rum and coke everywhere and didn't bother to clean up. The melamine on the kitchen cupboards was almost nonexistent and the balcony outside was obviously out of sight out if mind so the cleaners had neglected to take a mop out there for a while.
I could go on and on but I won't but I will say if it wasn't for the staff on the front desk at the time I would have checked out, great location or not.
Once I spoke to the lady on the desk she knew exactly what I was going to say and did move me to a much nicer and cleaner room where I did spend the rest of the week.
This being said didn't improve the state of the foyer and lift smell and the hallway outside the room was not vacuumed the whole time I was there. Thank you to the staff for your help but I will not be recommending or staying again.
