Pullman Brisbane King George Square
Ranked #46 of 168 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 20 September 2012

I have been staying at the Sebel for a couple of weeks for business (staying during the work week).

The Sebel is on the edge of the city and right next to a train station so is very convenient for both business and a city holiday. Taxi to the airport is around $50.

The rooms are quite nice, quiet - best try for a room in the newer wing (that's the one next to reception). The "premier" rooms are larger. I found them very quiet and well maintained. Service is very prompt and friendly.

The restaurant is nice and similarly priced to any nice hotel - around $30 - $40 for a main course. the buffet breakfast is OK, but over the last 3 weeks it is exactly the same food - gets monotonous.

Stayed for 1 night in a balcony room we can't really complain breakfast is what you expect in a 4.5 star hotel, bed ultra comfy, towels soft. Only thing was bathrobes weren't fluffy of white as you would expect. Bath room was nice bath not big enough to have a good bubble bath

Hospitable and lovely staff Receptionist.
Very nice and good ambiance inside the room.
Beautiful and lovely room service especially for food delivery. Thanks to the girl who serve my food in the room.
Great Location. Very Good Service.
Will definitely book there again.
Really good because you just ask the girl on the reception area and they will book you on the cab. The taxi respond quickly and right away in front of the lobby to pick you up.

Room Tip: 16th floor corners was very comfortable.

I travel to Brisbane each month and found this hotel through a Wotif Mystery deal. Overall it was a great hotel in a very convenient location. My room was newly renovated and very nicely appointed and very clean. My only issue was the air con was very noisy, even with the fan on low. I had dineer in the restaurant with a colleague and it was very good and the service was excellent.

The hotel itself is fine, comfortable rooms and beds. Double glazing to prevent outside noise is great. However our problem concerned noise affecting our sleep and was twofold. We had to use the airconditioner (a warmish night) and it was soooo noisy - it did not have a sleep cycle and the fan only worked on high speed. Secondly, there seemed to be sewerage pipes within the internal walls of the building - everytime an upper floor or toilet was used during the night we could hear a rush of water. Both these issues were most detrimental to our sleeping - in fact my wife had no sleep at all. We did not complain as we had dined out that evening and as we were fairly late getting back to the room we just put up with it.

Room Tip: Make sure a room far away from the sewerage pipes is selected when checking in. Also ensure the air...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at The Sebel & Citigate King George Square Brisbane.

We were concerned to read your comments in regards to the noise from the air conditioner. We have passed your comments onto our chief engineer for their review and to ensure the units are being checked for maintenance. We understand the importance of a good night’s sleep and it would appear on this occasion that we have let you down.

I hope you found the other facilities in the hotel and overall service to your satisfaction and we look forward to welcome you back here at the hotel in the near future to ensure you get a better night’s sleep.

We stayed in Citigate King George when we came to visit our relatives in Brisbane. It was really nice since the rate is affordable and offers pretty much all the facility a 4.5 star hotel could provide.

The best thing about this property is its location. It is situated right the opposite the Brisbane Town Hall and less than a minute walk to Queens Street.

However, it seems that the bathroom need some extra attention to detail and the shower box is kinda small.

We needed a city hotel for one night and this room was secured through Lastminute.com. The receptionist's attitude changed when I asked detailed questions about the security bond taken from my card.
There was no offer of help with our bags (even though we would have declined).
When we called room service for some ice and a cocktail shaker we were told that the shaker wasn't possible as the bar was 'very,very busy'. It did arrive an hour later (shaker with no lid). However in the interim we visited the bar where we spotted one customer!
The bathroom ceiling height was not legal (i.e. false ceiling) and as such the shower head was great for our shoulders but we had to squat to wash hair.
Requested newspaper was replaced with the local rag.

In view of the fact that there are many city hotels, we would not bother with this one again. There was nothing outstanding here to leave a positive impression.

Room Tip: Twin share (double beds) have larger space
