“Spacious, quality accomodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

The Lexicon apartments are suitable for short or long term stay for business or pleasure. The apartment is equipped with washing machine, full kitchen and good size fridge. The apartment itself is large and features one bed and bathroom (no bath), small dining area and good size living room that is equipped with large screen TV and cable provided. The location in Ann Street is right down town and an easy walk from Central Train Station.

The highlight is the apartment has a generous balcony equipped with furniture so this apartment is a great space to relax in. There is also a Gym and pool in the complex for guests.

The downside is there is no food outlets in the immediate area although a short walk gives you plenty of options during the day. Dont leave it late in the evening to have a quick take away dinner as these outlets are sparse and difficult to find.

It was a short stay but all in order.

Very typical of an Oaks property. Functional rooms which were fully equipped, clean and neat. Nothing standout but then again no complaints either...
Comfortable beds and quiet rooms (save a donging clock outside early in the morning!)

I normally stay in other accommodation when in Brisbane but the location of this one in relation to the event I was in town too see was right. Location is a nice even distance from 'Brissy' CBD and 'the valley'.

The apartment had the essentials needed. The apartment was clean but you can certainly see that it is showing wear'n'tear. The beds were average comfort and bedrooms decent size however I would have liked to see a TV in the room as a matter of personal preference.

The amount I paid for the two bed room place was due to the event in town therefore I believe I paid way to much for the two bedroom apt of this standard. I would be comfortable with maybe between $200 to $240 tops.

The service from the reception was excellent! Professional and helpful.

Many thanks for your review of Oaks Lexicon Apartments. It is great to read that you found the service from reception excellent. However, we are disappointed to hear that there were elements of your stay that left you feeling dissatisfied. We do hope that this does not encumber your opinion of Oaks Hotels & Resorts, and that we have the chance to welcome you back to one of our properties again soon.

Apart from rigorous check-in routine the apartments were well kept, great balconies with one en-suite extending to the Family Lounge and then one for the other bedroom. Not to Forget One MORE balcony right next to the kitchen.

We stayed on the New Year's Eve, the apartment management does maintain a strict routine on the noise levels and number of guests allowed in a apartment which probably adds to a quiet, peaceful stay of the long-term residents as well as for those tranquil travelers.

We shall surely be back... but be a bit beware prices are a little higher than average added with the cost of parking on top... so just a heads up!

Room Tip: Some bathrooms or showers can be a bit small so just a heads up and also ask to be situated on 23rd...

We stayed at 2 bed rooms apartment for 3 nights. The hotel is in central location and you can easily walk around the city. The room is spacious and we enjoyed big balcony. I felt car parking is a bit expensive, $20 p/n and it was hard to drive as its so narrow... Staff at the reception were kind and helpful:) Well, Overall i'm happy with our stay.

We are staying here for 5 days, for business for my husband and chill out time for me.
We have a clean and tidy apartment, 1302.
Colleen is a very helpful lady on the front desk, she deserves her crossed keys for the infomation she assisted me with this morning, however Laura is not on the ball on the late afternoon shift. I was told no postage stamps available here, go to the post office yourself, not helpful if you do not live in Brisbane when I asked where it was I was told behind this building, still none the wiser, will speak to Colleen tomorrow.
The pool is nice and gym functional.
I would suggest adding a box of tissues in the apartment, but other than that well appointed and functional facility with adequate kitchen utensils.
I have to say being charged au$90 for a weeks internet, 2 hours, day or week being the options available is very steep given we are paying au$169 per night and that is a discounted corporate rate.
I have been told this is standard for Australia, in which case the country needs to catch up the rest of the world join the 21st Century and include internet in the room fees charged and make it wireless, currently I cannot move further than the end of the cable so no sitting on the beautiful balconey and working on the latop for me.

Room Tip: No room service, but a Woolworths supermarket 5 minutes away and several coffee shops and cafes with...

Stayed 3 nights for a girly weekend in a one bedroom appt. The best price was booking through my 'Entertainment Book'. Good value.
Brissy is a great city to walk around.
Four blocks to the restaurants in Queen St Mall, not too far.
One block to Central Station and the link to the Airport.
The room was comfortable.
