Excellent hotel, very high standard rooms and polite and courteous staff, reasonably priced. Although a 5-10 min drive out of the city centre that is not a problem based on the favourable cab prices in Brisbane. My wife and I loved it and would stay there next time. Lets hope the price level stays similar to the AUD180-200 that we paid. I also stayed at the Saville on South bank and although that had a better location I would rate the Emporium as a far better overall experience. Several restaurants across the street for that evening meal or lunch.

  • Liked — Great standard and style
  • Disliked — out of the city centre, but only 5mins by cab

This hotel is located in a car park (which was once a bus station) in the centre of 2 major one way roads. There is traffic going round the hotel all day and all night.
It is not really located in Brisbane, but in an area known as The Valley. So if you want to get to the downtown or river, you have a 20 to 30 minute walk along a major road -- not a pleasant walk with all the fumes. A cab ride to the city will cost you about $10. There is nothing to walk to from the hotel, apart from a car park and some cafes that overlook the carpark.
Would never stay here again.

We had three days at the Emporium. This a great little hotel, we had the balcony room. Excellent facilities include great rooftop pool and Gym. Room has walk in robe, huge Bathroom, plasma
TV.

Staff were very friendly and helpfull. The bar is the hottest place in Brisbane right now and gets busy on weekends.

The hotel is in a busy trafiic and night life area but we had no noise in the rooms.

The only dissapointment was some very minor issues, Housekeeping was a little cheap with replacement amenties. No free broadband and service in the bar was very slow.

The location is in the valley but close to the city by cab.

We would stay again!!

  • Liked — Great fitout in he rooms huge bathroom

We had two nights at the Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley Brisbane. A new property but beautifully decorated and designed. The rooms cleverly incorporated a mini kitchen and there was everything the fussiest person (myself) could want. We especially liked the efficient but unobtrusive service. Nothing was too much to ask for and the the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a precinct with restuarants and bars to choose from. A great place to stay and we look forward to returning there soon.
