The location in the Valley area is phenomenal. The courtyard outside has 4-5 restaurants and a coffee shop. It's walking distance from all the exciting nightlife in the area, and Chinatown. If you head down Brunswick towards the river, you have a beautiful park (New Farm area) just 15-20 minutes away (and they have live music for free on the weekends at the park!). The BEST coffee in Brisbane (LTD coffee) is just two blocks away.
The staff at this hotel is fantastic. Courteous, knowledgeable, and accommodating. They truly know how to make you feel comfortable and welcome.
The room itself (we stayed in a 1 bedroom with a mini kitchen) is spacious and has a small washer/dryer. They provide laundry detergent and basic hotel-size bathroom items. The kitchen has a mini fridge, and main essentials for making / serving meals.
The only reason I cannot give this location a 5 star is for two reasons: dust and the excessive bird droppings in the balcony.
Although we did enjoy our stay, and would technically recommend it to my friends, I would warn that although the kitchen and bathroom were clean, the bedroom and living room were very dusty. The edges of the legs of the furniture (against the carpet) had that grayish white powder from excess of dust that had been sitting for a long time. The table where the TV sat had a dust layer that really needed attention. The night stands were dusted on top, but the cubbies underneath had large dust bunnies. The second thing was that we were not able to enjoy the balcony because a family of pigeons had taken up residence in the balcony Air Con unit and it was covered with their droppings. The unit itself was covered, and the floor around it and table out there had droppings on it too. Even if the chairs / table hadn't had it on them, it was impossible to be out there because of the smell. We did not mind since we didn't care about sitting outside, but it's fair to warn others that might be interested in using the balcony.
