    Great stay!This was a great apartment close to Fortitude Valley train station. It was a convenient location to the CBD and near to trendy bars and restaurants in Brunswick and James Streets including a tasty Vietnamese called Grumpy G’s. We extended our stay from two to four nights and the apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The only negative was that it was noisy on Friday and Saturday nights due to revellers in the courtyard. That aside,, I would recommend.

    Excellent Place for StayLocation was fantastic as its just at the outskirts of the city central. Lots of food and entertainment around, surprisingly wasn't noisy even though there were eateries and pubs around. Getting food and drinks at late nite is not a problem. Good secure parking and would recommend taking the leisure walk along Brisbane river to the city. Late night check in was a little confusing but was settled and having security guards doing regular clocking in is assuring. Aircon as a little noisy but because it's located in the living area it didn't bother us too much. It was like a home away from home.

    Surprisingly large and well decoratedI was really surprised at how well these apartments have been decorated. I stayed here a number of years ago and was disappointed at the ageing facilities and warn out rooms and beds. Now they're tasteful and modern with a couch, surround sound blueray player and high def TV, cooking and kitchen facilities and a really nicely decorated bedroom with a very comfortable bed. A couple of things that weren't so pleasant really stick in my mind though they shouldn't detract you from staying here. Funnily enough I'd already read about these things in previous reviews. First the toilet needs a jackhammer or something to get rid of the stains. It's clean, but looks terrible. Second the guy on reception is very surly and humourless. I would have thought working in this industry customer service was important but he didn't make me feel welcome at all. On the upside, the bed is really comfortable and the central location is really important if you need to stay here. There is a carpark for the hotel which is a real bonus and the woman who served me on checkout was really friendly and warm.

We found out from our local friends that it is considered a quite rowdy location. Everything was Ok during our stay and I suppose one has to be careful to stay safe. Will stay there again if they offer good rates.

    Disappointing ”

    Good location

    Really disappointed Having stayed here previously , I was expecting the same quality when I booked to stay a second time ,big mistake ! The room was furnished with cheap furniture and the air conditioner squealed , constantly , making it hard to sleep With the air conditioner off the room became very stuffy and oppressive very quickly It was a no win situation This room needs a make over desperately , Although I love the location and the convenience of the choice of places to get something to eat , I doubt I would stay here again

    I have no complaints about the actual hotel i would stay there again,but the reception staff we encountered were far from welcome and not friendly or helpful.eg iwas bitten by wasp that were under a chair on our balcony,when i rang reception to see if they could bring something to spray them with i was not asked if i was ok or did i need anything.Lucky it was not a child that went out there.Its a shame because first impressions of a hotel is with front desk and these staff members are doing this hotel no favours.

    Not a fancy hotel but okay”

    Convenient, budget and clean hotel

    This hotel is not a fancy hotel but it has all the essentials, an adequate bed, small flat screen TV and a bath/shower. I was looking for a hotel in the fortitude Valley area in Brisbane under $130 and this was the only one. The hotel is nothing fancy but it is in a good location close to clubs and pubs throughout the area. Also it is clean and moderately furnished, the bathroom is dated but it functions. It is definitely not a 4 star hotel at the worst 3. Overall it's not bad, I've had worse and paid a whole lot more.

    Kitchen, location, space

    We've stayed here around 4 times. Today we had a road facing room on 6th floor with balcony. I preferred the loft type rooms at the front. They seem roomier. A few annoying things were... no kitchen plug, no knob on the dryer, couldn't use it.The washer didn't work properly, no remote on the bedroom TV. Otherwise, perfect except for noisy people in the hall late at night. Had a great sleep! I don't like having to pay for parking.

    Location and that's the only thing best about this hotel

    The room was total disappointment, upon check-in, as a guest I could visibly see the room was not cleaned properly. Worst of all, there is no air conditioning in the bed room for the so called "studio apartment". Words cant describe when I found out that they don't even have cable network, to top it all their publicity of having a gym, sauna and BBQ area is in disastrous condition and complete SH&%! The room service staff and some of the reception staff are rude to core and should not be allowed into hospitality service industry at all. For the manager who is going to reply to this post, please don't bother unless you do something about it because I aint coming back or my friends because the word will get around.

    Simple, no frills serviced apartment ”

    Location, Cleanliness

    This hotel is a serviced apartment ideal for families. The location is ok if you want to visit the Judith Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and the nearby Chinatown. There are a number of nice cafes and restaurants around it. Right next to the hotel you can find Indian, Chinese and Thai food. There is a convenience store near it if you want to stock up on goodies. The hotel itself is simple and clean. If you are checking in before or after service hours, be prepared to wait for someone to open the door for you remotely. If all else fails, dial the number on the glass door. It is secure hotel but what I didn't like about it is that it does not have an in-room safe. The rooms come with a kitchenette, washing machine and dryer. If you get the room facing the road, then you will be affected by the noisy restaurant across the road, annoying bikers who think loud is powerful and the occasional sirens. Try to get the rooms facing inwards. The bathroom faucet is quite low so you either have to stoop or position the shower head upwards. This is a no-frills apartment.

    I booked a 3.5 star room through agoda. I decided to upgrade to a 4 star upon arrival for personal reasons. The staff we're happen to accommodate me as a room was available. Due to the local resteraunt an d dining facilities, ther was a little noise from below however the accommodation was quite tidy. Would stay there again.

    A solid stay, but room for improvement”

    comfortable bed, nice TV, location

    This hotel could easily earn 5 full stars if they worked on one small issue: dust. The location in the Valley area is phenomenal. The courtyard outside has 4-5 restaurants and a coffee shop. It's walking distance from all the exciting nightlife in the area, and Chinatown. If you head down Brunswick towards the river, you have a beautiful park just 15-20 minutes away (and they have live music for free on the weekends at the park!). The BEST coffee in Brisbane (LTD coffee) is just two blocks away. The staff at this hotel is fantastic. Courteous, knowledgable, and accomodating. They truly know how to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The room itself (we stayed in a 1 bedroom with a mini kitchen) is spacious and has a small washer/dryer. They provide laundry detergent and basic hotel-size shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen has a mini fridge, and main essentials for making / serving meals. The only reason I cannot give this location a 5 star is for two reasons: dust and the excessive bird droppings in the balcony. Although we did enjoy our stay, and would technically recommend it to my friends, I would warn that although the kitchen and bathroom were clean, the bedroom and living room were very dusty. The edges of the furniture had that grayish white powder from excess of dust that had been sitting for a long time. The table where the TV sat had a dust layer that really needed attention (I had to wipe it off with a paper towel). The second thing was that we were not able to enjoy the balcony because a family of pigeons had taken up residence in the balcony Air Con unit and it was covered with their droppings. The unit itself was covered, and the floor and table out there had droppings on it too. Even if the chairs / table hadn't had it on them, it was impossible to be out there because of the smell. We did not mind since we didn't care about sitting outside, but it's fair to warn others that might be interested in using the balcony.

    Large Apartments and Central to Public Transport.”

    Space, Location, Night life

    Had a great stay here. We were staying at the apartments for a music festival being held at the Brisbane RnA Showgrounds and this was the perfect location. The apartments are in the heart of the Valley and so it is a loud night life, but this is fine for being so central. You have easy access to public transport so the choice of restaurants and places to eat are all within 10mins bus/taxi/drive. Really cheap parking for the city and just underground which was great.
