We used this serviced apartment hotel whilst we were attending a conference at the Convention Centre. It is ideally located - with the river, convention centre and at the start of Boundary Road heading towards Vulture Street. From basic impressions, this place is hard to fault. It's not super expensive, has many facilities and the staff are very nice. House... More

The complex has a pool, sauna and gym with a rowing machine, exercise bike, weight machine and treadmill. All are well looked after and provide enough variety for... More

Not impressed from the get go. All rooms are supposedly nonsmoking however we arrived at our room, smelt like cigarette smoke. .. There was a cockroach walking along the ground, the bathroom floor was filthy and lastly the fridge was inefficient. I approached the reception staff and got a blunt "we'll send someone up to have a look". There was... More

The apartments are very centrally located, less than 10 minutes walk from the city centre and in the heart of the laid back West end district. Our two bedroom apartment was large, comfortable and very well equipped. Very good value for money. The only issue we had was that although we had specifically booked an apartment with air-conditioning, there was... More

We stayed for a night on 24/01/15 in a studio room. We had a show at Qpac to see and the hotel is an easy 10 minute walk away. We chose this hotel because of its location and the free car parking. Every thing you need is in walking distance from the hotel, a major shopping centre, restaurants, bars, newsagent,... More

The location was perfect for me, close to where I needed to be but also within walking distance of the centre, the Southbank complex of museums, and surrounded by many restaurants and shops, with a Coles supermarket across the road and an IGA ten minutes away on Melbourne Street. For my first stay I had booked a studio and found... More

Spent 3 days in Brisbane staying at the West End Apartments. Easy to book and great help at reception both finding the location in West End and with arrival/departure processes.

Tired looking hotel, rooms are in a need of a renovation and if you are staying in a room with has an adjoining room, you can hear them use the bathroom and chatting away.
