As a base for a weekend or a week in Brisbane, you cant go past West End Central. Staff are friendly and know West End. Comfortable beds are the icing on the cake. The local restaurant scene is vibrant. Gun Shop cafe for breakfast is the go.

Though our room was quite small, it was very comfortable and the window opened a bit to allow for fresh air at night. The restaurant attached to... More

We decided to stay in Southbank on this trip to Brisbane, and picked these apartments mainly for the free parking (security) and free wifi. The staff were superb we didn't have much to do with them but they were very friendly and helpful. The apartments were older style which meant they were larger than others and whilst the curtains weren't... More

Shared this apartment with family, two large bedrooms- 1 with ensuite, the other a separate bathroom. Spacious living areas and large outdoor balconies. Central to restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Secure car parking included and some Wifi. Reasonably quiet.

Apartment was clean and relatively spacious with all we needed to heat or cook our meals. Location near all the main attractions and food and shopping was great. Most restaurants within walking distance including a really good vegetarian restaurant and Indian and Chinese etc. Shopping just up the road. Staff were helpful and courteous. Would stay again and recommend.

Clean, simple and easy. The one bedroom apartment is spacious enough for the price point. Free parking included is always a bonus when staying in Brisbane/s city area. Helpful and friendly service. Great food options nearby.
