“Its a Gem”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

If you need a good location, and a quiet apartment for your holiday, Evolution Apartments is the place to stay.
The environment is clean, and the rooms a good size. We were in an apartment overlooking the river, providing a fantastic view. It also is a short walk to the main shopping area of the city, and to Suncorp Stadium.
Lift security was good as it ensured there were not random people wandering around, and we felt very safe.
There was a missed communication in relation to the sofabed, and the manager was very understanding, and really all the staff I talked too, as well as him are an amazing example of fantastic customer service.
If you catch the shuttle from the airport, be aware there is a short walk as there is no parking outside the Apartments, but that really was not an issue.
Thankyou for a great stay, and I definitely would return!

Modern apartment, well designed, well appointed, well equipped and centrally located. Pity for the view as our apartment was overlooking the pedestrian bridge which blocked the view of the river). The apartment comes with access to a communal room on the 36th floor, fully equipped with cooking facilities and a balcony with stunning views of the river. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Apartment was large clean and fully equipped, with amazing views of Brisbane.

Service was great- Carly on reception was so helpful from the moment we arrived!

Pool area was fab, didn't try out gym or other amenities but they looked good.

Apartments were a short walk away from city centre, bars etc.

Based on a couple of other reviews we thought apartments might be loud, but we didn't hear a thing?

Can't fault these apartments at all and would definitely recommend!

Our family spent three nights here on a promotional deal. I am normally a bit wary of these deals as they typically oversell fairly average quality accommodation. Not the case here. From our first contact via email, the staff were very friendly, helpful and acccommodating. Our apartment was quite large - more than adequate for a family of four. All the mod cons and a full size kitchen with all facilities. The kids loved their own bathroom and their spacious bedroom gave them plenty of room to relax. The views from the balcony were spectacular, particularly at night. I had initially thought that traffic noise would be an issue because the building is located right on the riverside expressway, however clever glazing reduces the noise to around that of a quiet suburban street. Ducted air-con made things comfy during hot Brisbane days. Easy walking distance to the city (5 mins) and the to cultural precinct on the other side of the river (15 mins). Building is very secure which is good, plenty of car parking. Nice pool for the kids to enjoy, and a very comfortable "sky lounge" on the top floor with outstanding views. Highly recommended....

For the best views of Brisbane city and river area select a river view apartment in Evolution Apartments. Great internet rates for 6 nights. My family had a corner 2 bdrm on the 27th floor looking east and west of the Brisbane River. Absolutely fanstatic! New apartments , very clean , great service with pleasant informative staff.
A short walk to the CBD / Casino or Roma St Railway Station. Can walk over the Kurilpa pedestrian bridge to the excellent Southbank Park which houses the Queensland Museum, Library , Art Gallery , Entertainment Centre and a myriad of cafes and restaurants.and a swimming beach with lifeguards for families.

Room Tip: Choose a higher level room as Evolution apartments are over the busy North Quay Freeway. Lower rooms...

Pros:

Great view
Relatively close to many things
Staff friendly

Cons:

-Traffic noise

-Very thin curtains

-Annoying parking system with poorly placed door swipe interface

-Stains everywhere, looking rundown. Our curtains, floor and couch had various stains. Controllers for cd player/tv/dvd player were FILTHY.

-Expensive - $300 a night for something like this is a bit much. Better off putting money towards stamford plaza.

-elevators are very slow

-paper thin walls.

A good option if you need an apartment rather than a simple hotel room. It's nice and new, well-serviced, and the staff are friendly.

My only complaint (and it's something that would stop me from booking here again) is the bedroom. The traffic noise is very loud - right from very early in the morning through to late in the evening. Also, the blinds in the bedroom are thin and white - very difficult to get a good night's sleep when the room is light and bright at 5am! Desperately needs heavy-duty blackout curtains and double glazing.
