Stayed here in May 2014 for 5 nights. I found the price to be very reasonable at about $200 / night for a 2 bedroom apartment. Fully self contained apartment with 2 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge in open plan living style which opened out to the balcony. I recommend staying on the upper floors as the trains can get quite noisy.... More

If you want a spacious apartment style place to stay near the Brisbane Convention Centre and the rest of Southbank, then this is it. Clean and modern, with all the required amenities. We were in a two bedroom apartment; each bedroom had it own large bathroom/loo, and also lots of hanging space. Large kitchen with large fridge, hot plate, microwave... More

My favourite accommodation in Brisbane by far. I have stayed in many hotels/self contained apartments in the Brisbane region and South Central is a cut above the rest. Everything is modern and new giving it a fresh and clean feel. Stayed in a one bedroom apartment and it was very spacious, had everything I need (inc. washing machine, dryer, complete... More

This is about our fourth time staying here and keep coming back. We find the location to be perfect for a quick walk to the mall, Southbank, qpac, museum and west end. It's central in Brisbane and easy to get anywhere. The train station is only two blocks away. Essentially everything at your fingertips. Lots of great restaurants at Southbank... More

Loved our stay here! Spacious, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom each, washing machine, all the mod cons, and a pleasant 10-minute walk to the Convention Centre. We appreciated the helpful staff. Yes, a bit of street noise, but not bad from the 7th floor. We were very happy with this place.

A lovely clean appartments with lots of mod cons. Big downside is the builders working next door who start very early every morning and are a few feet away from you as you sit on the balcony. When the building is finished, there will be no more city views but only of a big building. Quite a long walk into... More

Thank you for your comments. I'd like to start by saying that any construction interruptions you experienced during your visit was due to another building being built next door, this has now been completed. Some apartments' views may be compromised however if any guest wishes a balcony with a certain view, we encourage them to request such things upon booking.... More

The rooms were great - spacious and clean. The location was perfect - just down the road from the convention centre where my conference was being held. The balcony was a great place to have an evening drink, and the staff were helpful and polite. The construction workers digging the massive hole in the ground on one side of the... More
