Oxygen Apartments

Reviewed August 7, 2013

For a place called Oxygen it was a really smelly stale apartment! The apartment block and apartment itself smelt like old food. As soon as an apartment next to us would cook, the smell would waft into our apartment via the heating and linger for hours which made me nauseous at times.

The apartment in general was daggy with itchy blankets and dated furnishings. The bathroom was ordinary and the shower was very poorly designed, in a bathtub with a screen blocking access to the taps. So to turn on the shower, rather than let it heat up before jumping in, you had to get in to turn it on and get wet with cold water.

Service wasn't great. We never actually saw anyone at reception. It took three phone calls to check in and get parking instructions but still didn't manage to get access. Terrible. It ruined the trip.

Stayed for 3 weeks on business. Scored a 9th floor loft with great CBD views from the floor/ceiling windows on both floors. Very comfy queen size bed. Each apartment is privately owned and.individually furnished with high quality goods. Spacious ground floor with full, well equipped kitchen. This allowed me to prepare meals and cut my travel costs. Toilet on ground floor as well as in bathroom upstairs. Washer/dryer in a cupboard at top of stairs. Drier didn't work, but was fixed the same day I reported it. Despite the location there was little noticeable street noise on this floor unless the balcony door was open. Reception has limited hours but the staff were very helpful in assisting me to obtain room keys for colleagues who were arriving outside opening hours. Didn't try the limited free wifi.
Four pubs located close by, with reasonably priced eats and a Woolworths supermarket 5 minutes down the hill. Didn't use the gym or lap pool but my colleagues were most impressed with the gym. Free undercover parking a big plus.Can't wait to go back there.

Room Tip: Ask for a loft on 9th floor or in the garden, as these have less street noise.

My friends & i travelled to Qld for a festival and stayed for 5 days. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It had great comfy beds, one room had an ensuite with a shower and toilet. The other bathroom had a bath, shower and toilet. The 2nd bathroom was between the two rooms and the overall apartment was huge. We had a fully equipped kitchen and comfy lounges, unfortunately we kept hitting our toes on the chairs because the chair legs sticked out a fair bit. We had a decent sized balcony that overlooked the pool & grass area. We used the gym which was awesome and the sauna was relaxing. The pool was great, clean and glowed beautifully at night. The staff were very friendly! Great location.

The Apartment was clean, spacious and quiet which was just what we ordered. The location was great although there are not many restaurants nearby open on a Sunday or Public Holiday.

The only criticisms we had was the lack of reception staff on the day we arrived. Thank goodness we already had family booked in who already had the keys and could therefore let us in. There was another guest trying to register who was forced to shout his credit card number through the outside intercom. The only other problem was the lack of instructions for the TV/sound system and the car park access.

Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The young family members had fun in the pool and the grassed areas and being able to make our own breakfasts was great.

As always when staying at Oxygen the staff were wonderful and nothing is ever to much trouble. This time we stayed 3 nights in the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment which was very spacious. We love the location and how central it is to everything.

Oxygen Apartments is actually 2 blocks with the second named Oxygen City View which is about a 1 minute walk from the main reception. The rooms are adequate and reasonably well furnished. The only disappointing aspect is the lack of servicing which is undertaken on a 7 day turnaround. Now Brisbane is a humid City at the best of times so bedding and towels need to be changed at least twice a week and that doesn't happen. Apart from that, the apartment is situated within easy walking distance of the CBD and the waterfront. Immediately below the apartment is a 7/11, BWS Liquor store and pizza outlet. Its a relatively quiet area. Secure car parking is charged as an extra and is beneath the apartments accessed by key fob. There are 2 swimming pools - nothing special and a smallish gym that has just been renovated. Brisbane is not cheap and nor are these apartments but for the money overall OK.

Our family of 5 arrived early before 11am after a long flight from KL and drove quite of a distant from Coolangata Airport.

The staff welcomed us with their sweetest smile ever and arranged the hsekeeper to hurriedly get a room clean up as they did not expect us to arrive earlier than the check in time...having seeing us exhausted, they tried their best to get the room readied with the rollaway bed within 10 mins!

Awesome!! We went up to the apt.... and I just fell in love with the cleanliness, smelled freshly new furniture ( I'm sure its a new refurbish unit). I am so glad... My family were happy indeed!
Oh ya. my husband and my sons loved the gym facilities! Everything is so new! It has small swimming pool... but hey, it doesnt matter... anyway... ;)

Next to the apt, there is a convenience stores, hence it is so convenient!!
Its walkin distant to the city... But as we only has 1 nite there... we decide to drive and park at the shopping mall.

Checkin out is also as easy as it is. Kudos to the friendly and polite staffs!
