The Novotel Brisbane is conveniently located close to the edge the CBD area (sometimes the address says 'Brisbane', sometimes it say 'Spring Hill'). Either way, it is only about 5 minutes walk from Central Station and also a few minutes walk to St George Mall. I was able to take the AirTrain from the airport to the city and just walked to the hotel.
I was fortunate to have a room high enough and with a view so I could see the streets below. The room was very clean, spacious and filled with light. The beds were comfy so I had no problem going to sleep each night.
Since I was in Brisbane during the summer, I was pleased the AC worked so well. I also noticed the Dexter-inspired curtains which made me chuckle.
The staff were friendly and were keen to help. They seem to go out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. I had a really nice time.
If there was one thing I did not like about the hotel was that even though it was only a few minutes walk from Central station, it is located at the top of a steep hill. Going out was fine but walking back up to the hotel in the middle of summer was something I never looked forward to at the end of each day. I would love to stay at this hotel again but only if the climate isn't so extreme and I am not travelling with someone with mobility issues. If I had a car with me, it wouldn't be a problem since I can make use of the underground car park and just take the lift to the hotel. That's something I need to consider next time I am in Brisbane.
I would love to stay at the Novotel Brisbane again but it would depend on the time of year and who I am travelling with.
