This is a old hotel so old furniture, but the room was big and clean, don’t expect a super hotel for the price it costs. Staff is friendly and it helped us staying longer because of the lockdown and keeping our room. Excelent location. You can go walking everywhere. The bath spa didn’t work though, swimming pool and gym closed because of the pandemic. It is hot in the elevator but there is good air conditioner in the room. We had a great time here in general.

Loved the location, view from our clean and cozy room and hospitality of Mr Salman. The property itself is quite classic and historical, and it reflects in the way its done-up It was all worthwhile, especially in the times of Covid. Couldn't have asked for more for the price we paid

Great location, very clean and easy to find. No smell in the room. Friendly staff. Had to wait a while for a lift but that's ok. Parking was $25 per night. Good cheap accommodation for 1 night stay after night out.

We walked into the formal reception area and checked in receiving friendly service. We were charged $25 for private parking which I did think was overpriced but shrugged it off. We drove into a claustrophobic tiny car park thinking I was sure to scrape the side of my car. We entered our room and my first thought was “I paid $111 for this?!” When we inspected the room we found a red stain on the carpet, which I would hate to think what that actually is (pictured below) as well as disgusting, grimy and sickening stains on the curtains. Giving the venue the benefit of doubt I thought surely the bed had efficient sheets. We found a stain. Upon the leaving the accommodation I was horrified to find a dump of old furniture taking up two car spaces in the underground parking with no caution tape. I am not one to judge a book by its cover but I felt unsafe and uncomfortable seeing unfortunate drug addicts coming and going from the great southern hotel. We were also given no information about their COVID safe plan. I will never return. I fear this place has some illegal activity operating behind the scenes. I have attached evidence below.

Hi D5765PDsamr, Thank you for your feedback. We apologise for your experience during your recent stay at The Great Southern Hotel Brisbane. Appropriate actions have been taken by the Housekeeping department to resolve the issue with the smell. The latch on the wall is an old anchor point which was used by workers who operate at heights. These anchors are no longer in use. Nowadays, we have anchor points installed outside of the building. Regards, The Great Southern Hotel Team
