“Fantastic location for day-tripping, good quality quiet rooms”
Reviewed 7 April 2010

We had an excellent large and clean 2 bedroom apartment which easily slept the five of us and with good cooking facilities as well. It is only a few minutes walk to the station and then just 4 stops to Brisbane Central. Easy & cheap. Quiet location which suited us, but easy walk and plenty to eat locally as well. Pretty convenient to the airport too. It has been recently done up, and the staff are certainly very friendly and helpful to go with it. The pool was a real bonus for the kids.

OK, I chose this place because it was reasnoably cheap - but, it wasnt even worth the low price we paid.
When we arrived in our room at approx midday, we went straight out again and tried to spend as much time away from the place.
The rooms were cold, smelly and grotty.
The forks used for our dinner we had to rewash under boiling hot water - yuck.
Would never stay here again.

We booked this apartment because of the closeness of the airport. It was basic accommodation but value for money. Not really a holiday place, ok for one night. We did not feel unsafe.

We stayed here for the first few days after we moved here. I had the place booked for 2 weeks and we could not wait to get out! We actually found an apartment that day and probably were too hasty in signing a lease, but we could not wait to get out of the hotel! It was dirty, smelly and was overrun by cockroaches. The location was poor as well, though at least it was close to a train station.

  • Liked — service, I guess
  • Disliked — dirtiness

We booked online. When we got to Aabon we were taken to this dingy building across the road with broken flyscreens and dodgy looking people living there.
Was scary looking and very 3rd World!
The photos on all of the websites show the newer main building with the pool out the front, not the hovel across the road that you will get. We were told we would have to pay extra to stay in the units that were advertised on the websites. This is false advertising.
BEWARE, make sure you confirm that you are in the newer units with the pool in front.

My family stayed at the Aabon in September last year and are looking forward to returning whenever we are in Brisbane again. I wouldn,t stay anywhere else now that I've finally found somewhere that is really good value for the average family. And by average I mean mum, dad and three kids who probably earn around the $35000 a year mark.No we don't think paying $150.00 a night is a bargain, anything we can get for around $100.00 is worth a look. Until now we haven't found anything like that , that isn't in a caravan park. So we were very excited to find the Aabon. They have large, clean rooms. We had an apartment room that had two airconditioned bedrooms, One with a double bed and the other had three singles. There was also a loungeroom with foldout couch and a full kitchen. There's also a pool, which the kids love. Also a full size bathroom The motel is in a good position for shopping, public transport or the airport and aren't to far from the city. So if you are an average family and think you can't stay anywhere in Brisbane that isn't either overpriced or a dirty little hovle that you wouldn't have your dog in, think again. I strongly suggest you give the Aabon a look. We were pleasantly surprised and will definately return.
