Convenient, value for money
Hotel is nearby Roma Station (just 1-min walk). Very convenient. Room is spacious and clean. Highly recommended.

The first room smelt of strong cigarett smoke, whi
The hotel had a private function on one night so we were unable to use the resturant and then the next day there was some kind of event in the drive way of the hotel which made it awkward to get taxis.

Much room for improvement

Location, branding
If it weren't for the association with the Shangrila hotel and resorts group and its proximity to CBD, I would probably not have stayed in Hotel Jen Brisbane. For a 4 star hotel, much is left desired for its housekeeping standards. Items were often not replaced for 2 persons or not replaced at all. Cleanliness was also an issue. Hair strands were not vacuumed. Cups were dirty and towels were stained. While the front desk claims it's a non smoking hotel, I smelled strong cigarette smoke on 2 days walking from the lift to my room (luckily not in the room). I complaint to front desk on the first day and they sent someone to sniff where it is the strongest smelling. Of course that didnt work since there was strong cigarette smell the next day too. The parking for hotel guests is quite expensive at AUD36 per day, ticket requires validation at front desk.

A leisure weekend

There was nothing really good about this hotel for the amount of money we paid
I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions but my last visit I was very dissapointed. When I arrived at maroon on the Friday afternoon it looked like the room had not been cleaned there was paper still on the floor & the previous person clothes were on the floor. We had to ask several times for them toreplenish our coffee, sugar & milk.

Close to city

Trainspotters would like this hotel, food was good.
Noise of railway outside window constant, but not too bad. If you are into trainspotting this would be great to get a view of the Brisbane city rail lines. Location great if you are looking to be in the heart of the city, or taking further transport onwards.

Designated smoking area
I asked reception on where guests can enjoy their bad habbits, I was told out the front and down the main road???!!!? Really? As a guest all facilities include designated smoking areas - I will not stand on the main street, down Roma Road and have a ciggerette. I would have thought you would value your regular patrons and ensure our comfort.
