This is a great place to stay when you are in Brisbane. You are centrally located to the downtown core of Brisbane. If shopping is important, you are close to major shops and the high end shops are within a 5 minute walk. You are also close to the Botanical Gardens, the ferries, pubs, entertainment and public transportation.
These are "serviced apartments." You do not have daily maid service, but you do have cooking facilities, a fridge and in-suite laundry. Great if you are staying for a more than a night or two.
If you have no desire to cook any meals, there are coffee shops, pubs, and restaurants within a two block walking distance.
The staff were very friendly and were very quick to respond to any questions we had.
Being an "old guy" the title of my post refers to an old movie called the "Music Man," where they had "trouble in River City." On my experience in Brisbane there was "no trouble in River City."
