“Almost perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I've stayed in a one-bedroom serviced apartment for two nights, located in CBD in a striking skyscraper of which the top floors are still under construction. The place is in convenient walking distance from Roma St Railway Station (direct trains to the airport).
The reception staff in the spacious lobby was very polite and welcoming.
Everything in this new property is shiny and of best quality. My apartment on 13th floor offered a fantastic view of the river and the city. The bedroom was not very large, and a chair would have come handy. The sleep quality was excellent thanks to the great bedding and the silence in the room. The bathroom had one small washbasin and a shower, no tub though, but I found this fine for single occupancy.
I didn't use the kitchen or the washer / dryer. Laundry service was provided at typical hotel rates (shirt AUD 8.50).
There was WiFi in the room (included in my rate); its speed was sufficient for emails etc.
As I didn't make my own breakfast I went to Alen's around the corner on George St.
Next time in town I would definitely rent again a serviced apartment here.

Top quality in top location. Outstanding decor. Problem with parking at the moment is the only real negative. Otherwise superb value. Service is excellent. Includes 1Gb wifi per day. Highly recommended.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Meriton Serviced Apartments with the Trip Advisor community. I was great to read your comment and that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our location allows our guests to experience Brisbane's attraction within walking distance. I am sorry our car park is not ready yet but we are working hard to have it opened ASAP.

We would love to welcome you back when next you stay in Brisbane and maybe our car park will be open by then.

Dear Silvia O

Thank you for sharing your experience at Meriton Serviced Apartments with the Trip Advisor community. I was thrilled to read you enjoyed your stay and i agree with shower comment they are awesome! and the cube apartments are such a great idea and one of our most sold apartments allowing guests to open sliding doors to the bedroom to open the apartment right up or close for privacy.

i booked a one bedroom for 5 nights and it was great. The location is the best of thing. Close to ROma station so upon arrival you have a few meters to walk and easy to get to the airport.

The building was not fully complete when we stayed so there a bit of banging noise during the daytime but it was still tolerable.

While this is a serviced apartment I have to say the standard of cleaning service is not consistent. Our cleaning lady was not as fastidious about details and I am a bit of a neat freak.
One day she left the cleaning rug in the sink. The next day I deliberately left some shreds of tissue in the laundry are to check if she would sweep it and she only swept the the ones in teh hallway and left the rest in the laundry are closet. That was a bit slap dash for my taste.

Room Tip: The one bedroom has a big lving room ideal for young kids to romp around

I would like to thank you for bringing our lapse in cleaning standards to my attention. A clean apartment is of the utmost importance to all staff at the property as it is the business we are in. We will ensure we meet with our staff and highlight your points to them and that it is not acceptable.

My Partner and I booked a weekend away in Brisbane to get away from the dusty outback. Since the flights cost so much, we looked for cheap accommodation and found Herchel St Mertion. I have stayed in Broadbeach Meriton before and our stay was awesome!! got off the train at Roma street from the airport, I kind of knew where it was, did a short walk and saw it around the corner.
we got there and welcomed perfectly with a swift check it and upgraded room to keep us away from the noise of construction, even though we were 100% prepared for it (that's why we got a heavy discount on the internet introduction to the new hotel) the room was gorgeous and clean. we had a great stay only a short walk to the main shopping street malls. the only 2 things I remember was putting my towels bak on the racks again for use but cleaners took them anyway (bit of a greeny) and the buttons on the toilet were a bit sitcky and toilet lid loose- but don't mind as I knew it was new everything!!I would definitely recommend and stay here again. coming from the hospitality industry every where I go whether its café, restaurant or hotel I am very picky and particular but this hotel was awesome!!

Room Tip: we were kindly upgraded to a 1 bedroom from a cube.(due to construction) The room was roomy with ev...

The apartments, while still under development were very clean and modern with all facilities provided. Staff were very friendly and helpful both on arrival and departure. Close to transport and the CBD makes this the ideal location for both business and leisure.

On arrival i was greeted by 2 very friendly and helpful gentlemen, Jordan and Craig. They were so helpful and super nice, they made me feel I was staying with friends and not staying in some generic hotel. they were helpful in every way, so thank you to the both of you and i look forward to seeing you on my next visit.

Now the room - I stayed in a one bedroom city view apartment and may i say it was amazing!!!!!! views were fantastic. Had a full kitchen and washer and dryer. everything was new and had no worries with using anything. The pool and sauna are was great and loved using it throughout my stay.

I will be recommending your hotel to all of my friends.

Thank you
