          the location. It was next door to where I had to go.

          The hotel reception knew nothing of the confirmed booking made through Booked.net. The hotel staff were most kind and found us some rooms despite us not being booked in.

          Lovely view of the river and city, very pretty at night. Liked having a balcony, fresh air. Delightful short walk through Southbank to the Convention Centre. Very comfortable, well appointed and relatively quiet.Full bath great for soaking and kitchen very helpful.

        • Family with children

          We had a really well appointed room with a beautiful view of the Brisbane River and city. The apartment was well thought out as to family needs with a fully equipped kitchen, great bathroom with bath tub and separate shower and laundry. It was quiet, private and included everything needed to make for a great family, city holiday experience.

          Location - it was close to shops, restaurants and ferry stop.

          Musty smell, noise from construction early morning, too long to check in.

          The staff right from directing us to the hotel ( we got lost) to finding me a coffee plunger, extra blankets, just fantastic thanks Jas. So close to Southbank just perfect

          Everything I needed except internet connection (not available in hotel rooms), at a reasonable price, and everything was in good condition.

          Good location - close to Southbank. Easy walk to city over the Goodwill Bridge. Good restaurants nearby. Comfortable.

          Enclosed parking area is poorly lit.

          The fact that it was next door to the Mater Hospital, when I realized it was also close to South Bank that was an added bonus.

        • Family with children

          We were very impressed by the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, and their high standard of service (particularly welcome after a week in another resort that had rude staff!). Excellent location. The 1 bdrm apartment was spacious, well designed and well equipped, the only quibble I have is that the bed was pretty hard.

          Very well situated to get to/from Suncorp Stadium and other venues by bus or train.
