          Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Urban Brisbane

          Piece of crap


          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?


          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


          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.


          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.


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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 ***

          racing vehicles that you inhumanely squish yourself into. Only a
          helmeted head pokes out the top. I have seen this athlete pedaling
          away twice now. Once, it was growing dark and I saw that he has a
          bright round light on the front! I cannot help but wonder if it is
          one of those 'charge-by-winding' lights that he has to pedal to
          sustain. Probably not, but I like the idea! Haha!

          shade. I could see it being the absolute best in 30 degree heat!

          We were back home by about 9.00 and I
          helped Patty unpack everything and sort out what was going to their
          farm that day and what was staying. I planned to go to Riverfire, so
          I would not be accompanying them to their farm. Patty and Frank
          bought this HUGE property with a dam a few years ago and plan to move
          there ...

          gate. All this time, tourists were taking pictures with the koalas.
          Each koala is only allowed to be held for 30 minutes each day, which
          is great. There are so many of them that this is entirely possible,
          even on busy days. Pictures start around 9.00 and end at 16.30. Five
          keepers staff the Main Enclosure.
          I went with Leah and shoved the
          branches into two trash bins hooked to a frame on the back of a
          Gator. We chugged ...

          ... I felt sorry for Anaise, clearly stuck in the middle. We stopped at Caloundra where she dropped Hanna and I off at the bus interchange. We had all had enough by now and it was definately for the best. We were civil and wished each other well but you can't and shouldn't have to get on with everybody. 90 minutes and a bus and a train later we were in Brisbane.
          We checked into our hostel, had a hot shower - such a luxury, and did our laundry before ...
