“Nice modern room, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2007

This hotel is fairly central, being a short walk from the Queen St Mall (400m?), Botanic Gardens (100m), Eagle St Peir restaurant area (700m?) etc, however area is relatively quiet.

Hotel room was fresh and modern. Large bedroom, lounge/dining and also a big bathroom, although the shower was a little annoying.

Stayed on a mid-floor (#12) and the view was not great but ok. Pool and gym were often free although smallish.

Have seen 1bed apartments at Oaks 212 on internet for around $170, but I paid $212 myself so check around.

Based on photos from other Oaks hotels in Brisbane I think the decor (& price) is quite similar.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2006

Stayed three nights and found the apartment perfectly satisfactory. The separate bedroom, living and kitchen area, bathroom and balcony were more than we needed and could see it would suit a single person or couple staying in Brisbane on extended business.

Pros
Good value for money, especially if late deal taken
Quite spacious self contained units
New and modern
Relatively central, within easy walking distance to most places
Arrived at 8:00 in morning and were able to get in room with no trouble

Cons
River view depends on room location and not as good as suggested on website.
Building work going on around it so starting to feel somewhat closed in, even for a city
Shower not at all great
Car parking fees
