We stayed here recently with a large group-so had 2 apartments--709/710 & 704. Both were very spacious and comfortable and the setup of 709/710-where the 2nd bedroom was a self contained hotel room, meant that we had 2 bathrooms which was great. The views from the large balcony up the river were magnificent. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels provided... More

Very convenient location, very close to South Bank therefore close to restaurants and coffee shops. Stadium at a walking distance. Rooms are modern and clean. Parking is very easy and plentiful. Didn't have the chance to try the pool or sauna.

Hi Altaca16, Wow, thank you for your kind words regarding your recent stay at Central Hillcrest Apartment Hotel. We are in such a prime position – with awesome views – and very close to some of Brissy’s best restaurants! You’ll have to test out the pool and sauna next time! Again, many thanks for your review.

We stayed with a large group of people who all booked separately so we were able to check out a couple of the different rooms. I was very happy with our room # 501.

I was not aware of the great booking I had made until we arrived. I'm not familiar with Brisbane and was so pleased when the hotel was right next to the Mater Hospital. The surgeon made last minute changes and there was no problem for the hotel to accomodate our needs. Nicole was so helpful online booking. When we got... More

Booked the one bedroom apartment with river view. Landed the 8th floor with fab views up the Brisbane River to city. 5 minute walk to restaurants in Southbank, ferry to city, and free ferry to Eagle St Pier. Spacious well appointed lounge, big DTV. Sound system, great bedroom, fully appointed kitchen. Well worth the $$

We booked a hotel room here rather than an apartment, which suited us for a one night stay. The room was clean and although the bathroom was dated - it was clean. We had a fairly pleasant swim in the pool. It was a huge surprise when I looked at the dinner menu. The restaurant is very dated & on... More
