“Spacious, Friendly and Great Value”
Reviewed 10 January 2008

This has to be the best value hotel in Brisbane. I booked it as I was staying for a week, wanted a bit of extra space and didn't want to stay in a big chain hotel. At $120 a night it was half the price of the big business hotels.

Powerhouse did not disappoint! The apartment (bedroom, combined living room/kitchen, bathroom, laundry and balcony) was big enough for a family of four, and had a fridge, microwave, oven, cooktop etc so I could make my own snacks.

The location is fantastic, a 20 min taxi from the airport, with a range of restaurants etc within a 10 minute walk. I did a great long walk along the river, which is a one minute walk away and has a lovely boardwalk.

The manager, Valerie, was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. I didn't have a car with me but parking is free. I used the bus which was a two minute walk away.

The Powerhouse might be a bit out of the way for a one night stay, but for families or people staying on business for more than a few nights it is perfect.
