“Highly recommended if you can stand the noise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

A warm welcome awaited our arrival where the receptionist did her utmost to see that our 2 bed apt was ready asap. The flat had all the mod cons, 2 bathrooms and a lovely view of Brisbane CDB plus free parking.. Close to the river and lovely walks it only took 15 minutes to walk into the city centre. The only adverse criticism was the worn nature of the sofas and the noise at night and in the early morning. Located on a hill at a busy crossroads the early morning noise of traffic was intense. This, together with the noise of the trains just a few metres away and what sounded like a shunting yard, was not conducive to a good night's sleep.

We stayed here and went to the craft show and Life Line Book Fair, walked there and found it an easy walk.
Also went to West End for a meal, bit further , but plenty of places to eat.
Closer went to Era bistro, very good
Only concern was the balcony, need to lock door if there are young children. Four year old wanted to stand on bench seat to watch the trains, leaning over balcony!!! That was stopped quickly and door kept locked.
The apartment had everything we needed and very clean.

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 the city or south bank but any for the museums and galleries. If I stayed again, would probably look or something closer to the south bank.

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. We like to accommodate any needs of our guests.

Please stay with us at South Central again,
Management

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 building, however, were not as polite, and didn't think anything of starting their jackhammers very early each morning.

Room Tip: Definitely consider staying at this apartment building, especially if you want to find somewhere clo...

I recently stayed at South Central Apartments and was very impressed with the facilities, location and staff. The pictures look exactly like the real thing which is amazing for 4 years old. The reception girl was lovely and helpful. Always smiling. And the apartment had everything you could want which made it very comfortable and liveable. The price was quite reasonable for what you got and I can't wait to stay again!

Room Tip: All rooms are self-contained so it wouldn't matter which apartment you were in - just depending...

We booked our apartment as part of a package for a conference - well in advance of the date. All of our dealings with the management were professional and courteous. The arrangements for arrival on a weekend were clearly communicated and worked exactly as described. The apartment was spotless and well equipped - the two double bedrooms were comfortably furnished. We got a bonus view of the Brisbane Riverfire fireworks over the city skyline. Recommend this one!

This was a great choice for attending the Convention Centre in South Brisbane. It is also close to the amenities of Brisbane's South Bank - entertainment, restaurants. We didn't have to get a rental car as everything we needed was within walking distance, including the CBD of Brisbane. Try the restaurants at West End too! The unit was very well appointed, clean, full kitchen and laundry facilities and had views of the City. There's a swimming pool and BBQ area on the top floor too.
