Its close proxcimity to everything in the city
The convenience to the city centre and public transport
Bathroom was very cramped. Also no facewasher or shampoo, conditioner or body gel/wash. No air-conditioning in the bedroom only in the main living area.
very close to every thing in cbd
I loved it's views and the cleanliness of the apartment. The spacious rooms were great.
I was dissapointed with directions for car parking. soemthing written up properly would be great not a sketch with no street names! also being billed twice for the room was a bit disconcerting. I hope that works out. Won't know for several days until the bank handles the details
It was gr8 to be in a city where it only took 5 minutes to walk to a supermarket, food court and a shopping mall that had everything for myself, my son and all the families staying with us.
It would have been too much to stay at the apartment and also pay daily parking for a car. A car was esssential as we were there to watch a basketball carnival at Auchenfower so people had to stay out of town and pick us up to avoid $20 dollars a day. It would have beenn ideal if you had a weekly reduced rate but having said that it all worked well and we had a great week, thanks Lisa Owen-Thomas
Very centrally located to the Queen Street Mall and its associated shops & businesses. Staff are very obliging & most friendly.
Nothing......very good value for money whether using a one or two bedroom apartment.
The location was excellent, right in the city centre and the views from the 31st floor were fantastic. Nice, clean, comfortable and modern apartments which were reasonably priced for the inner city of Brisbane
Parking is a little pricey, $25 per night if you want to use their secure undercover car park. You may as well budget that into your stay too because good luck finding a park on the street!
Spacious Rooms and good views of the river
Rooms could do with a fresher look, coat of paint and replacement carpets! Small amount of laundry detergent should be provided and tea/coffee replacement everyday.
clean and tidy
You have a potential fire hazard (the clothes dryers have a inlet vent at the back and they need to be checked and clean every couple of months ) ours was totaly blocked, i cleaned it all was well (plus they use a lot more electricity,being inaficient). drop of temp parking to pick up the keys and check in a real prob.
Conveiantly located & comfortable
Aircon is insuffient for room and leaked. Lifts take to long to respond. Noisy construction sight next door.
The room we was allocated did not have the view of the City or the gardens as stated on website,In fact it had a view of a wall.However we complained and our room was changed to one with a City view.The web site was misleading.
Loved the views, the unit was very comfortable, great kitchen, very comfy beds, loved that we walked out the foyer and were right in the city to indulge in shopping,eating at great restaurants, and strolling around the CBD and taking in all the wonderful heritage buildings and Botanical Gardens..We spent a week at i Stay River City and it was like Home away from Home!! we will certainly be staying there again and recommending it to friends.
The only thing that we were disappointed in was that we felt that the internet cost was a little high..
A great city location, short walk for restaurants, cafes and shopping.
No shampoo, shower cap, hand towells or facewashers. Terrible smell in hallway.
Close proximity to public transport, shops etc
The room ( 1501 ) could have done with a coat of paint. Bathroom needed better exhaust, smelt a little mouldy. 15th floor list lobby also smelt a little mouldy.
The location was excellent and the bedrooms were comfortable.The balcony and views were also good.
We only stayed overnight for a stopover before flying home. If I was to stay any longer I would have requested to change apartments because the one we were provided with was very poor. 2 ceiling lights were missing their covers revealing just bulbs, the air conditioning did not work so we were provided with one fan for a 2 Bed apartment. The steam iron was useless, the carpet was not fitted properly throughout and full of ridges, worn out and stained. Satelite tv was faulty in that we needed to switch it off from the wall every time we wanted to change channels. No remote control for the tv in the main bedroom and there was also only one two seater sofa in the living room for a 2 Bed apartment! Would not stay again and are thankful that we only had a one night stay.
