    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Urban Brisbane

    Piece of crap

    from

    We got there on a hot day..... ok, air conditioner was on not working well. tiles in bathroom held on with gaffer tape, paint falling from ceiling, dirty cups still under the bed, crack in the balcony, (we were on the 6th floor) balcony door didnt close properly. shocking experience, would not recommend.

    Different Expectations?

    from

    Is it not noticable that we brits find this hotel more than adequate, while other nationalities seem to have different expectations and attitudes to the staff?

    I stayed here for five nights, 25-30 Oct 2004, and found the staff friendly and helpful, the restaurant excellent. The central location was ideal for access to the tourist sites, and for the business I had in the CBD.

    The check in restriction was a pain, not before 1pm, after a 25 hour flight, arriving in the city at 7.30am meant sitting around needing a shower, although there are facilities for this in the Brisbane Transit Centre, as are secure baggage lockers.

    I would certainly stay here again.

    Very basic

    from

    Good value for money, but certainly not a luxurious place. If you are looking for somewhere basic for a reasonable price, then this would probably be OK for you.

    Oh yeah, this place has the tightest, most dangerous hotel carpark I have ever driven in. The cars are safe (room card to gain access to carpark) but man it is pokey! The ramps up and down to each level of the carpark are one-way and you have to guess and hope that nobody is coming in the opposite direction to you...

    Not bad.

    Easy access from the airport.

    from

    Found it conveniently located for getting to by car without getting too involved with the city traffic but close enough to walk in to the CBD and the restaurant was good if you couldn't be bothered to walk far. Hard to judge staff because had mixed treatment. Arrived 4hrs too early for check in after an all night flight, exhausted and unkempt, one receptionist took the 'tough you will have to wait' attitude, where another bent over backwards to accomodate us straight away so that we could get on and enjoy our stay in Brisbane. A typical, you get what you pay for place.

    It is what it says it is.

    from

    The Goodearth is a three star hotel and no more. Whilst the rooms and facilities are average they are value for money. The staff on the other hand are in general five star.

    Badearth Hotel lacks security

    from

    I stayed in Goodearth for a week in August 2004. This was about 7 days too long, but unfortunately all other hotels were booked. The Goodearth is bad and was selected for me by a convention organization. While the hotel commands a great view over the city of Brisbane, it is really old, unkept, dirty and has dangerous plumbing. It is not even appropriate as a "backpackers" hotel. Security is non-existant as I had a valuable computer stolen from my room. The thief had a hotel key as there were no signs of forced entry. Hotel management did not care, or offer any discount, compensation or apology. If staying in Brisbane, save yourself a lot of trouble and stay somewhere else.

    Good Earth good value

    from

    stayed there Nov 03

    is slightly out of the CBD (10 mins walk ?) regulation 3.5 star hotel, huge balconies

    would stay there again (paid $87, although cheaper rates s/be available)

    It was good value

    from

    Stayed here in Nov 03,and thought the price of the room Aus$77 for a twin was very good.We had a twin but there was a double bed and a single as well.Staff were friendly and there was a swimming pool.If i ever return to brisbane i would stay there again!

    Get what you pay for

    from

    Stayed here April 2003. You get what you pay for. Very cheap, but condition of fixtures and fittings dated. Staff reasonably helpful. If you're staying for more than one night or want a bit of pampering do not choose this hotel. If you're on a budget the it's just about okay.

    Not Next Time

    from

    Closed the Bar to early, even when they still had customers. Don't make Int'lnation phone calls from your room, rung NZ cost me $132 for fifteen minutes. Walking up the hill from town was a real pain in the ***

    A couple of bumps on the flight but otherwise uneventful and we touched down in Brisbane at about 10:45am local.

    Helen stayed with us overnight on Tuesday and we are taking her back to the home at Kelvin Grove tomorrow.

    End of trip - which Helen told us she enjoyed and if the photos are any evidence, she had a smile ...

    ... services that had these things! Then the video goes straight to his phone. Just mental. I took a quiet night before hitting the hay before our final full day on the island. Morning came and we were down to 24 from 38 as the 2 day tour people left. First stop was another perched sand dune lake called Lake Birrabeen. Far more prepared with the lotion I hit the perfect temperature water as Hayden got out inflatable balls and paddle boards to use. Champion. Not bad way to spend 9am on ...

    ... ticket, walk through open gate. Poor Wes had to go through manually.

    Next to baggage collection. Watched the bags go round, no sign of ours. Call for passenger Wesley Young to go to baggage services. Our bags were not in Brisbane. They did not make the quick connection.

    It is a very quick passage through customs when all you have is hand luggage. Hand in your form and walk out. Lovely to be greeted by Dan, Frankie and Dori. Even better was that ...
