Annie's Shandon is family-run, nice and well decorated place with lots of history through the generations. Its well located near the central station (approx. 8 mins walk). Its also well located near the CBD area where all the malls and shops are (approx. 10 min walk). It has that warm cozy feeling like when you are staying at your grandma's place. It is clean and well maintained even though its bathrooms are shared.
Value wise, if you compare it to a hotel, its pretty value for money. That is if you are staying just for 1 or 2 nights tops. If you compare it to a backpackers, its pretty pricey. But overall, we felt its worth the stay. There are a couple of highly recommended breakfast cafes nearby. Too bad they were closed on Sundays.
Rooms are small. No TV. There's an AC with heater function so that's pretty useful. Brisbane can get chilly at night in winters. Oh, walls are extremely thin so don't be surprised when you can her your neighbor using the hair dryer etc. If you are carrying huge luggage, do request for the rooms on the bottom level as the stairs are extremely narrow. It will be a challenge to carry a huge luggage up the stairs.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience for a nights stay. Oh, the owners are extremely polite and nice. They had breakfast included but we did not get a chance to try it so cant comment.
