I agree with Jayjay D - this facility is designed to service groups or individuals on football/sports trips at the GABBA stadium across the road, and would be perfect for that kind of thing- or budget conscious travelers. It's nothing flash, but adequate as a place to stop. Could summarise by saying the place has obviously seen it's fair share of people traffic.
My husband and I booked a 1 bedroom apartment and were allocated a room on the 6th floor.
The suite consisted of a open plan kitchen (oven, stove top, microwave, full size fridge/freezer (bonus!) and dishwasher) 6 seater dining table, lounge with sofa (which probably pulled out to a bed), 2 chairs, a coffee table, TV and stereo. The bedroom was off the lounge with roller doors which could be closed to separate the 2. There was a balcony with a little 2 seater table & chairs and a drying rack which came in very handy. The bathroom with vanity, shower over the bath, and then laundry with washing machine, dryer and iron behind shutter doors. Separate toilet. 2 air conditioning units - 1 in the lounge and 1 in the bedroom. So the room was well equip, which served us well as we were there on a 6 night stay. Our 1st impressions were that our room was quite dirty. The carpet in the lounge was badly marked and stained and the walls around the entire unit were filthy with marks and stains. Felt like the place needed a good wipe! Some of the drinking glasses were chipped, and the dishes needed a good clean. But we had got the room at a very reasonable rate, especially considering it was right over Christmas, so we looked past that and accepted it wasn't the Ritz or the Hilton! The apartments are located very conveniently above a complex in which you will find a coffee shop, money machine (ATM), supermarket for all your supplies, bottle shop/liquor store, bakery, Nando's, Pub, Tobacconist, gym, tanning salon etc. Also directly across the road is a bus station and it's only 3-4 stops to the central city. So you can easily access everything you may need. Downsides: The elevator for the building is painfully slow - so don't try to come or go anywhere in a hurry! The shower is awkward for normal-tall people as the shower head is mounted very low so you have to crouch or bend to get your hair wet. Also the holes for the water are very fine so the water is under extreme pressure and comes out hitting your skin like needles. Normally my husband LOVES high pressure showers but even he found this painful and we could only shower at half pressure water strength. All in all showering wasn't a comfortable or pleasant experience.
Upsides: Very reasonable rates. Accessible to everything you need including transport.
