“Surprisingly nice and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2010

I am always wary of "non-branded" motels/hotels close to airports having stayed in many who turned out dodgy and disappointing.
Having to book one night in Brisbane for an early morning flight out, I choose Aabon. We were pleasantly surprised.
The apartment is large and correctly appointed.
The location of Aabon is less than 15 minutes from the airport in a quiet neighborhood. Right next door there is a pizza place and a chinese takeaway as well as a convenient store.
We had the takeaway pizzas in the garden of the Aabon, next to the pool.
All in all a pleasant stay with friendly management.
A bonus is the free wireless internet.

I travelled to Brisbane and needed a place right near Brisbane Airport.

We chose Aabon on the grounds that it was cheap accommodation and affordable for our tight Budget.

Aabon was value for money i must say and the staff were very friendly

we stayed in a 2 bedroom budget apartment because we had to go to the airport early next morning. the building is old but it is freshly renovated, painted and very clean. the beds were comfortable. there is a well stocked kitchenette and there's food shops and convenience store close by. this is not fancy but its very good value for the price you pay - the railway station is not far away and the airport was only 15 minutes. very friendly staff on arrival. we'd stay here again. apart from the yobbos having a chat for an hour out on the verandah at 11pm - it's a quiet area...

Thank you for your review. The train to & from Brisbane airport is expensive so we advocate that guests spend a little more on a cab with far less hassle. Being in a suburban location finding an eatery open after 10pm is a problem but I suspect that would be the case in most citys unless you got accommodation in the city centre with it's extra costs.

I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights whilst on Business in Brisbane. Took out the one bedroom unit, which was surprisingly comfortable.

Will definitely be back!

We had an excellent large and clean 2 bedroom apartment which easily slept the five of us and with good cooking facilities as well. It is only a few minutes walk to the station and then just 4 stops to Brisbane Central. Easy & cheap. Quiet location which suited us, but easy walk and plenty to eat locally as well. Pretty convenient to the airport too. It has been recently done up, and the staff are certainly very friendly and helpful to go with it. The pool was a real bonus for the kids.

OK, I chose this place because it was reasnoably cheap - but, it wasnt even worth the low price we paid.
When we arrived in our room at approx midday, we went straight out again and tried to spend as much time away from the place.
The rooms were cold, smelly and grotty.
The forks used for our dinner we had to rewash under boiling hot water - yuck.
Would never stay here again.
