Positive Reviews

Fantastic location for exploring Brisbane.

Being Queensland’s biggest city and the capital of the state, Brisbane has a lot to offer visitors, and by staying here you’ll be close to most of it. Many shops, entertainment venues, restaurants, and bars are found within a short walk.

Lovely city and river views from some apartments.

If you book an apartment with a river view you won’t regret it, the view from the balcony is spectacular. You’ll have a panoramic vista over the city of Brisbane, with the Brisbane River in the foreground.

Good level of customer service from the staff.

The people working at this place go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to making sure you enjoy your stay. Any problems with your apartment will be fixed right away, and they deal with your requests professionally and quickly.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness is falling way below standard.

Unfortunately the apartments here are not being kept clean enough, and just a couple of the things you might encounter include stained carpets and dirty curtains. Housekeeping need to step up their game here and pay more attention to the small details.

There’s an extra charge to use the Wi-Fi.

This place really needs to get with the times and provide free Wi-Fi for all the guests that stay here. Charging extra on top of the apartment rate is a terrible money-grabbing policy.

You might find that some facilities are broken.

Once you've checked in to your apartment take a look around and check that everything is in good working order. Sometimes things are left broken or faulty, like loose bathroom fittings for example, so report problems like this to reception.
