Recently stayed here for 3 nights. Chose The Miro Apartments based on reviews and location to a course I was attending in Fortitude Valley.
I arrived after hours and received a text the day of arrival with the code to get into the building and to the safe where I would find the key to the apartment.
Apartment was clean and spacious as previously mentioned. The apartment was outfitted with all dishes and cutlery and a small amount of dish and laundry detergent was provided. It had a washer/dryer combo in the bathroom.
What I wasn't keen on - the "bedroom" was to the immediate right upon entering the apartment, it had a sheer curtain closing it off from the entrance way (see picture). The shower was open, meaning no shower door (I don't like these type of showers). The apartment (101) I was in faced the front of the building, level one at the very end where the undercover parking garage is, therefore there was noise from that and Robertson Street which is also noisy, while trying to watch tv. The apartment itself needs updating, some skirting boards around the bottom of the walls would give it that 'finished' look... and it could use a splash of colour on the walls, it was very stark....not even a picture anywhere in the unit. The bathroom had no towel rails, there was a suction hook (only 1) stuck to the shower glass. There is Wifi...for a cost...I paid $19 for 24hrs and barely used it because the signal was poor and kept dropping out....was a waste of money in my opinion. Used my mobile phone which was much better!
The apartments are a short 5 minute walk to The Story Bridge. Restaurants/cafes and convenience store in the area or a short walk away. Fortitude Valley train station about 15 minute walk away. I took a taxi from the airport because it was dark and I didn't know where I was going....cost me about $48.
I can't say whether I would stay here again....I wouldn't if I was on vacation with my family. I might if I was away on business again and if I needed to be in the area. It wasn't bad...it needs work.
