Two significant pros: (1) Location is absolutely perfect, in that the neighbourhood is very quiet for being in the city, and there are a lot of "things" within short walking distance. The walk into the city was only 8 min. but was uphill on the return, but we enjoyed the exercise. (2) The room was modern and clean, and a comfortable size (for a "studio room"). (3) also the included parking was helpful. (4) oh yeah! and there was internet included in our booking, which was nice (although it kept "kicking us out" so we had to keep logging in every so often when checking email).
For the cons: We were slightly disappointed that the obvious specks all over the carpet were not vacuumed after 2 days - till we asked for it - but generally the housekeeping was otherwise GOOD.
The bathroom IS quite small and water from the shower DOES fill the bathroom when you use it (as many mention). We used the floor mat to soak up the water but it is not nice to stand on a wet towel as you dry yourself after shower. Don't plan to spend much time in the bathroom!
The walls were a bit thin and we were slightly disturbed, by other tenants on RARE occasion, but primarily by the slamming of some door early in the morning (9am - we are on vacation!) presumably by some workers doing refurbishment.
We had the best ever holiday in Brisbane, and did not spend much time in the room. The mini-kitchen was adequate for our stay, as we were mostly out, but I think we would have been less happy had we spent more time in the room. Still we would CERTAINLY recommend Punthill to any single or couple wanting to be "in" the city.
The management are VERY accommodating, responsive, and friendly. We WOULD stay here again. Oh yeah, just remembered there is also a nice little open air gym and nice pool (and sauna), if you don't mind exercising with an audience (all rear facing apts). Not a complaint, just something you should know. We certainly recommend Punthill, Brisbane. (pretty good value for money too)
