“Great view and great location”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

This Apartment has excellent view over Brisbane river/Southbank and is equipped with good common facilities such as a gym, a deep lap pool and a view lounge. The 2BR unit is spacious and fully equipped with an open kitchen. This is a big help as there are not too many good restaurants open in the evening in the area. Having said that, it is conveniently located in a quiet street offering easy access to the centre of Brisbane and South Bank (both within 10 minutes walk). The service is also good. The only complaint is the constant traffic noise from the freeway next to the river but this should be bearable on the higher floor.

Room Tip: High floor with river view

Evolution is well sited and has magnificent views of the river and the city. The apartments are roomy and well appointed and the desk is manned 24/7. It's close to Southbank and to the CBD, and Eagle Street Pier and the Botanic Gardens are less than a 15 minute stroll. Also very handy for all types of public transport, including the Airtrain connection to the airports. Only problems: no coffee plunger in our room, and none forthcoming when we asked for one; and the rooms' blinds still let in a lot of light, so the bedroom was never dark, which made sleeping a little difficult.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor and a river view.

Lovely new apartment building in the city. Great views of the river and Southbank or the city. There is a media room, pool, spa - everything you need. The apartments are large, self contained and stylish indeed. Walking distance to everything you may want to utilise. Great staff, easy parking. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on a higher floor if you want the views

Just a few days ago my mother and i stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with my 20 month daughter. I must say everything about this place was perfect from the parking to the staff, there was absolutely nothing we could asked more of. I even managed to find the place with ease. The only regret was that we could have stayed longer ....we will definitely be back!

My 30th floor 1 BR apartment had a great floor-plan and was very roomy. My room had city views, it's possible river-view rooms are smaller, as was the case with my colleague's room next door. Quiet, tastefully decorated and comfortable, they come with free Wi-Fi if you stay 2 or more nights. The only negatives were the absence of a TV in the bedroom and tissue boxes in the apartment. They have a number of restaurants that deliver meals (but can take up to an hour!), but not breakfast. A 15 min stroll away is a fantastic Vietnamese/French fusion restaurant, called Libertine, near the Barracks. I'd stay here again and dine at the Libertine.

Booked evolution apartments for 2 nights from the 08th of November until the 10th of November, organised a 1 bedroom apartment which was a nice change compared to a hotel room. The location was extremely central walking distance to Queen St Mall and the Southbank region. Had easy access to Roma St Station. 1 Bedroom apartment we got was on the 27th floor and had views of the River. It was modern clean with a well stocked kitchen open plan throughout and modern design. Would pick this property again if we need to stay in Brisbane again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and a view of the river if possible

I rented a 1 bedroom apartment via Octopus travel and thought it was great. We were on the 31st floor and had a slight river view. Apartment was new and stay was smooth. In reading other reviews, I guess I would request a higher level floor as this building was right next to the main highway but we had no noise 31 floors up!
