We stayed here as a family of four and I did not experience one tiny fault during the entire duration of my stay. I booked this last minute on 'Wotif' and it was one of the few hotels that offered 'apartments' and was one of the cheapest of these few options.The architecture inside and out is divine, exceptionally stylish and...

We have stayed at many places on the Gold Coast, but have no hesitation to state the Soul is now our favourite place to stay, whenever we make the trip up there! Apartments are well maintained, well appointed, clean, spacious and with views that are breathtaking. Add to this it's central location and it's list of amenities for use like... More

Still blown away by last night's stay here. Self parking is complimentary but awkward to thread the way through the maze underground, though there were plenty of spaces available. Once you get up top it is heavenly. Well trained staff assist you to the room and the room itself was spectacular. Fantastic views of the beach and huge kichen /... More

We booked a one bedroom apartment on the basis of the favorable trip advisor reviews. Four nights early March. “Soul” deserves their many great reviews, from service to facilities. Our 34th floor apartment was spacious, clean, comfortable, two full bathrooms, huge balcony, and well-equipped for self-catering. Good wi-fi but limited to one device, which seemed unreasonable for a couple (I... More

I must say, This is probably the best place I have ever stayed at. Perfect location and view. To top it off, Service was impeccable. Upon arrival, I was greeted at the reception by my full name and was told they've been expecting me. I booked for 4 nights in a 1 Bedroom Ocean view but upon entering my room,... More

Stayed 5 nights on the 13th floor with a seaview apartment. This gave us lush views every morning and was truly wonderful. The apartment itself was ultra modern and ultra clean. The daily service by cleaning staff was exceptional and we felt really grateful for all their hard work. Really this is not a hotel but a tower block of... More

Beautiful views and beautiful room! We had originally thought about staying a at the Hilton but it is not as close to the beach. I'm am so glad we moved hotels! Free parking and free wifi was nice too.

The hotel is located in a perfect position in surfers paradise. It is quite new and modern. Parking was complementary but from the parking to the reception was quite confusing! We actually got lost initially till we found our way to the reception area. The apartment was very clean and impressively modern with all you need in a self catering... More
