LaVida on Anzac
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Redcliffe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stayed here rather than an airport hotel after arriving on an evening flight into Brisbane. With a rental car and google maps its easy to find. Its clean, quiet, and has all the necessities, and not only is it considerably cheaper than around the airport, but its also on the way to the North and the Sunshine Coast (aka Noosa). There is a pleasant walk on the boardwalk at Redcliffe Beach, 2-3 blocks down from La Vida, and some OK breakfast places at the jetty there. And on your way back to the hotel there's the BeeGees walkway with lots of photos of all those teeth.

La Vida is in a good location and the 2 bedroom apartments are good for a family of 4. But the place is getting a little bit tired. The bathroom towels are a bit worn and even though it says there is free Internet this isn't really true!!! But having been a bit negative the apartment layout is good.

On our trip through east coast of Australia we booked the La Vida on Anzac for a 3 nte stay. Absolutely beautiful two bed apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Cooker microwave dishwasher in kitchen with washing machine in main bathroom. Ensuite bathroom in main bedroom. Lounge nicely appointed and lovely balcony with furnishings surrounding both the lounge and main bedroom. Spotlessly clean and pleasant reception staff on arrival. Very short walk to shopping and beach area Would have no hesitation in recommending a stay in La Vida and we found it very good value of money.

I regularly stay at La Vida on Anzac on business trips to Redcliffe. The rooms are always nice and clean, all have a good size flat panel TV with a few Foxtel channels and all have a small kitchen area (bigger apartments have full kitchens). Things to look out for, if you're given room 3 or 3a you will have zero mobile coverage in your room and even on the balcony is very limited. Rooms anywhere near the elevator can be a bit noisy (obviously), there is no free wifi but there is a paid cable service and the office is always happy to lend you a cable, and every bed that I have ever slept in there (and I've slept in a few) has very hard, high pillows that will inevitably result in you having a crook neck in the morning.
Given these small gripes, I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap bed on the peninsula!

Highly recommended for any kind of travel, family or some alone time. Clean and convenient, I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, 2 adults and one child. I was very happy with the layout of both bedrooms, as well as the open plan kitchen and lounge. modern appliances, including washer and dryers. has a great variety of eating establishments within a few minutes walk from La Vida, There was a stag night happening on our first night, I though the noise might be a bit intrusive, but turned out to be really quiet after I closed the ranchsliders. Staff are really helpful, and a leaky tap in the ensuite was fixed within the hour. was really nice to come back too in the evenings also after a day out in redcliffe! la vida bella!

I've stayed at La Vids apartments probably over 13 times now both for business and leisure when I'm visiting Brisbane.
The Check In process is completed within seconds, the service is beyond terrific and if you have any questions the Service desk is always happy to help.

Cleanliness - in the several times myself and colleagues have stayed at La Vida, we've never had any problems with the cleanliness of the room. The rooms have always been clean and spotless. After our trip ends we feel obligated to actually leave the room the same way we got it as.

Rooms - My colleagues and I have stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and never had any complaints. The rooms are spacious and have all the required 'elements' that an apartment should have. As after all Brisbane is a small city/suburb, La Vida apartments do have FOXTEL. Keeps you entertained after the restaurants close.

Location - location is great as its in a quiet place. It is near all shops and restaurants. It is also situated near the beach and a park which is great if you are travelling with kids.

Overall - if I am ever in Redcliffe or Brisbane City, with no hesitation I will always choose La Vida Apartments on Anzac. I have and will continue to recommend La Vida to friend, family and business colleagues.

Just finished a great week at La Vida in their 3 bedroom room self service apartment with four adults and two under five year olds.

Was not sure what to expect from some of the other reviews but came away feeling very happy with my choice. Management were happy to help when asked.

The ground floor apartment had a great layout with the three rooms separated from each other so we all had our own space. The open plan lounge, dinning and kitchen was very spacious so we didn't get under each other's feet. Aircon worked well as the apartment can get a bit hot overnight.

We hired a porta cot and high chair for the week at an additional cost to the room rate and we were also able to get a fold out bed for our four year old so he was in our room along with the baby.

Was pleasantly suprised about the quality of the appliances with nice fridge, stove, washing machine / tumble dryer and flat screen TV. While there was no ocean view there was a big outdoor undercover area that had an outdoor table and space for the clothes rack that was provided.

Sometimes had trouble with mobile telephone reception in the apartment and had to sit outside on the patio to get internet access with our USB modem.

Basic set of pots and pans and good number of plates / bowls and cutlery. We cooked a lot of our own dinners and the kitchen was big enough. Great pantry space.

There was a main bathroom / toilet and an ensuite in the master that were both very clean and in good condition. We has plenty of towels and were able to wash them in the washing machine and quickly dry them in the tumble dryer so there were always enought towels to go around. You get a service of clean towels once during the week so washing them is a necessity.

You are expected to take out your own rubbish down to the basement carpark and put it in the bins provided, fair enough... plenty of bin space and recycling too.

The lift from the carpark was very quick and clean. You can hear the sound of the lift going up and down in the apartment but it was not too loud. More noticeable when there are more people in the other appartments going up and down, but even then it was not intrusive.

Secure undercover car park was great - we had two cars and there was plenty of space mid week, more of a squeeze on the weekend when it was busy. Shops were within walking distance including a Woolworths.. but beware they close at 5pm on weekends!

There is a small pool in the apartment complex but we didn't use it. Beach was two blocks away and there is a resort style lagoon which was great for the kids. There was also a great promenade with some fun, well maintained parks and new play equipment.

The Redcliffe markets on Sunday morning were much bigger than expected and worth going to if you can.

Overall our experience at La Vida was a happy one and I would choose to go back.
