room far from clean, sink disposal smelt, fridge not cleaned out, lounge needs to be replaced as no support, bed not made neatly, carpet behind beds not cleaned drink bottle under cupboard, curtains half hung.
Having to walk down 13 flights of stairs due to faulty lifts. This was after waiting 20 minutes waiting for a lift.
Location, ease of parking, helpful staff & late checkout.
Great location close to everything in the city.
I loved the fact that it was a short walk to the city centre, and the beautiful botanic gardens were also a short distance for excercise...loved it... thank you
Paying for shampoos etc. no complimentary milk Roadcwork noises at night Paying for use of carpark
Well positioned for access to the mall and the botanical gardens.
No sound proofing. Very noisy at night with doors banging and people talking. Basics not included in bathroom -face cloths, tissues and shampoo. Carpet could use a clean. Décor a bit tired.
not all basics provided (i.e. no tissues, shampoo, conditioner, face washer or washing powder for the washing machine - these cost extra) noise - you can hear voices on street below, even at 25 floors up. TV in bedroom didn't work, sheets had a hole in them, apartment smelt like urine.
the apartment has a spacious living/dining area. bedroom was separate from the living area and featured a big built in wardrobe. I lived the place and the location.
The air conditioner in the bedrooms did not work The cleanliness looked bad Lights not working Two different colours of lights Over sweet smell in the apartment I booked a 1 bedroom and I got two, but it was not value for money
Good location 15mins to central station.
No sponge for dish washing. They only provide a small bag of washing liquid. Bed ware are not good~_~
Proximity to city centre, good front desk attitude, functional layout
Kitchen facilities .... no lid for large sauce pan, rubbish bin did not operate as required, exhaust fan noise drowns out TV. Bathroom ... no face washer or hand towel.
Great for groups room size is excellent
I really lioke the acess to staff (who were GREAT!) 24/7, as well as the location, which is absolutely brilliant. We chose to come back here afer our original stay several years ago, and it was still a good experience.
Nothing really comes to mind - there were a couple of little things not right, but the staff respondedd very quickly and solved the issues - so all good!
private, quite and conviently located.
the bed was uncomfortable
Walking distance to Queen St mall for a mature aged couple. Modern, fresh rooms with good facilities.
There was a nasty smell emanating in the corridor from an unknown source on the 8th floor but the pleasant staff were undertaking to rectify this problem. Didn't affect us while inside our apartment.
I will definitely stay again in this hotel. The staff are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The room is very clean, kitchen is very tidy and the bedroom is very comfortable. I will recommend to all my family and friends who will visit Brisbane in the future.
Ben came to fix TV when Foxtel didn't work
Light on balcony didn't work Main light in bedroom didn't work Had to ask for more glasses as only one in the apartment None of the above could be fixed as there is no maintenance over the weekend Light shade in lounge fell off while we were watching TV which gave us a fright
Very clean and modern. Great value for money. Brilliant location. Easy carparking. Lovely staff. Awesome elevator! Really great.
Loud noise from a party a couple of balcony's below. Kept us awake all night. This probably has turned us off staying again despite there not being anything wrong with the facility itself.
Great view from balcony. Plenty of room to move in the apartment.
I liked the location close to everything a 24 hr pizza and pasta place directly underneath, 7 eleven right across the road, balcony and the privacy, the crime channels on foxtel another added bonus!! The room was perfect nothing bad to say about the room.
I ordered a 2 bedroom apartment but instead got 2 1 bedroom apartment which was ok. I asked for late checkout and called them over the course of a month about my reservation which they knew a told me about the reservation and even called the morning of check in to make sure everything I asked for ok and requested an additional car space. Everything was fine until we got there. No recollection of me calling at all expect on the morning they noted I did ring for the additional car parking but said there was nothing said about the 2 bedroom apartment. So for their mistake they said they wouldn't charge us for the car space or the late checkout which I though was fantastic of them until I went to checkout and she said I had to pay for the late checkout the thing that upset me the most was that it was the same lady that a spoke to when I checked in unbelievable!! So I was shocked but didn't have to pay for that either but my point is..really bad customer service
Loved the spa, sauna, gym and pool Location is fantastic Staff were friendly and helpful
The tv wasnt working properly (but I wasnt there to watch tv anyway) There was some shoddy plastering around the room but again, no biggie... Views of office buildings!
Very comfortable bed.
The $150 that I had to have taken out of my creditcard on arrival. Most accommodation would only charge the account if there was a need to. I will not be staying or recommending istay River City soley because of this required transaction.
Amazing staff. Bed was so comfortable
The 10 day turn around on security deposit.
Almost Freezed to death Bond required for one day
