“Great apartments for a short break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I stayed here for a Saturday night when visiting Brisbane to watch the Rugby. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The Punthill is conveniently located as it is a short walk (approx 3 minutes) to Central Station and then only one stop to Roma Street. The Punthill also has secure underground parking. It is not far to the South Bank either, which we explored on our departure. We will be back again for sure.

I stayed overnight at Punthill Brisbane and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The moment you walk in you feel at home with the staff welcoming and helpful. Every staff member I walked past smiled and said hello. The decor is stunning and so funky. (A little bit of Melbourne in Brisbane) The room didn't disappoint either, it had everything I needed in there, modern appliances and features. So close to the city, I walked to the Mall in no time.
I will definitely be back and will definitely recommend to my friends.
Thank you!

If rooms were always available at Punthill for the price i paid (including parking and wifi), I don't think I'd bother looking anywhere else. About a 10 minute walk to to the city or 25 minutes to Southbank.
The room was comfortable with a very practical size kitchen. The only blemish was some dirty upper shelves. Obviously out of sight for the housekeeping staff.

Stayed at Punthill Brisbane for two nights and wish I could have stayed longer! Such a warm welcome upon arrival, great advice on local dining spots, always a smiling face at reception. The room was large, practical & funky. Will definitely return & hopefully the cafe downstairs is completed when I do. Thanks Alicia & James, what great hosts.

The Punthill Brisbane was an excellent choice for my week long stay in Brisbane as the rooms all include a studio sized kitchen with everything you need to make a quick meal. Located in the Spring Hill neighborhood the Punthill is within walking distance of all of the culture and fun of downtown Brisbane while being far enough away to be quiet on the weekend. If I am lucky enough to make it to Brisbane again I will be staying at this lovely boutique hotel.

Punthill Brisbane was very well located and provided all amenities you could want. We felt the bed was way too soft. But that aside, the suite was large, great balcony and a comfy lounge. Funky decor throughout! Loved the 'art' in the bathroom, the use of local primary school art is a lovely touch. The staff at reception were great, really helpful. Just a walk away from the city centre. Give it a try for a night or two, but your back may be sore for longer!!!

Room Tip: Maybe ask if the beds have a varied firmness?????

Dear 944Katherine,
Thank you for your review of Punthill Brisbane.
We are delighted that overall you enjoyed your recent week-long stay at the property. Our beds have a luxurious mattress topper on them which most of our guests love; however, when you next book, please advise that you would like the topper removed, which will create a firmer bed for you.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill in the future.
Kind regards,
