Well, actually the place gets mixed reviews from my perspective. The managers are really nice, and they are trying really hard to make this a good place to stay. The place was freshly painted and quite spacious (we had a 2 bedroom/2bath unit).
The carpet & furniture desperately need to be replaced. While the unit itself was not half-bad, the shabby carpet and stained furniture were real detracters. There was also a strong scent of cooking or fried food in our unit - probably engrained in the carpet. We also had some difficulty with the mattresses. The master room was not bad, but the twin mattresses in the other room were so bad (twanging springs and lumpy) that we had to stack two mattresses together in order for the third person of our party to get any sleep.
There is no pool or any services - this is purely an apartment in a neighborhood. It was a 15 minute walk in either direction to get to any restaurants or shops. There is a cute neighborhood with some outside cafes, etc. about a 6 "country" block walk outside and to the left of the unit. The hospital is right across the street.
The views from the unit of Brisbane were spectacular. The unit had a lot of windows that made it bright and pleasant in that regard. The windows however were not very soundproof - therefore there was road noise as the place sits right on Coronation Drive overlooking the river.
Taxi's in Brisbane were not cheap. There is a bus stop right out front and the City Cat Ferry is a short walk away. There is free wireless Internet in the entire building of the Chasely.
So, if you are looking for a cheaper place to stay and are not interested in the usual hotel amenities - then this may be a good choice for you. Just be aware that the walks to the restaurants could take you a bit (especially in driving rain, which is what we found in Brisbane for the entire 6 days we were there). If you want to ex[lore Brisbane CBD - then get familiar with the Ferry or the buses or the Taxi's before you get there.
