“Surprisingly Good”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The Hotel does need some updating, the Showers were a little dated and actually stopped working in the morning (Luckily we had both showered and didn't need it - informed the staff and it will be fixed). I think location, location, location - perfect! we had an engagement party to attend in West End so this was perfect, saved on taxi fares as we could walk around. The Air Con was amazing in the heat and the bed was super comfortable. Everyone had said these apartments were for students so made me feel better thinking I may come back a little loud after the party, and the hotel was secure with codes. I had trouble with the Free wifi but lucky for me I never needed it.
Will stay again in August for the wedding

The hotel is three blocks from South Brisbane station and near the convention center and art museums. The kitchen and bath were in bad need updating. The walls were paper thin and you could hear conversations in the room adjacent and smell what they were cooking. When checking in, no one explained the free we-fi option or provided passwords. The password changes each day which meant another trip to the front desk for the password. You only get 200 mb free, so that didn't last very long. You also had to have a password to enter the building after 9PM, since no one is on duty. The pool and spa were outdoors. I just felt like this was more of a backpackers place and overpriced for what I paid. Also, note there is no washer and dryer in the studio units.

We really enjoyed our stay at these apartments. Close to everything, free secure parking, spacious and great service. Great price too! Quiet at night with lots of food choices close by. Great kitchen facilities and two bathrooms! We will be back :)

Stayed in a one bedroom for two nights to make the most of our stay in Brisvegas. This was our second stay. The locality of the apartments to West End restuarants, Qpac (we saw South Pacific-excellent) and south bank was very handy. West End shopping centre is across the road with Coles, chemist, bottle shop etc. It's only a five-10 minute flat and enjoyable walk to South Bank with anothjer five to the CBD. We recommend the walk along Southbank over the goodwill bridge and into the Botanic Gardens and visit to the recently refurbished Govt House. It's great that an accomodation supplier includes secure free parking with the sometimes special rates. I have been stung by the big names in the city with very expensive parking. The welcome and service by staff on the front desk is always efficient and friendly and the rooms a clean and tidy. One negative on the last visit was some of the cutlery was not clean, but that was probably the last visitors fault. Otherwise we will be back.

3 generations stayed in 1 x 2 Br & 1 x 1 Br Apartments. The location was great, check in swift and easy. The 2 Bedroom unit had 2 toilets and a great balcony, both had every thing we required. We will be back!

Excellent accommodation in a great location. It is not far to walk to South Bank and is ideally located with a few restaurants downstairs, as well as a Coles supermarket which is less than 5 mins walk away. The studio apartment included a kitchenette hidden in the wardrobe which made the overall look very clean. The whole apartment was very clean and looked as if it had recently been refurbished. The balcony didn't have a great view, but it's fine for a 4th storey view. Definitely worth the money and the staff were friendly and very helpful! You get a free apple too!
