    The well designed, fully equpped and compact one bedroom apartment is excellent for short stays, Primarily catering for visitors to the adjoining hospitals and small conferences, my one bedroom apartment was warm and quiet. Reception staff friendly and welcoming. Appreciated the modest complimentary buffet breakfast (Cereal, juice, toast and tea/coffee) Free secure parking most welcome. Suggestion. Double the number (per guest) of the rather small towels.

    The first morning, I reported the malfunctioning shower to a staff member who undertook to the problem. The shower was not fixed by checkout 24 hours later.It transpired the problem was not reported by the staff member. This incident marred an otherwise very pleasant overall experience at this venue. I would stay there again.

    The Apartment was new, clean, roomy and nicely decorated with good parking. I have already recommended it to others. Good value for families.Close to airport.

    The only thing I didn't like were the prints in the room- trivial I know Would have been good to have some information-a folder in the room with local restaurants, shops etc

    I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room and services and was priced very well for what we got. I would definitely recommend Essence Apartments to friends and family and will be back to stay again in the near future. Thank you

    Free cable TV, the rooms and decor are new and very clean, free basic breakfast and good showers.

    Okay location if you have a car or visiting people close by but not close to the city.

    location- i came on a holiday and should have booked a hotel in the CBD. Wouldn't recommend purely on location and distance from Brisbane CBD.

    Everythin was really new, the room was really nice, the kitchen clean.

    The staff for the breakfast wasn't that friendly.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    I was impressed with friendly service, closeness to hospital which was my main purpose of being in Brisbane but also close to clubs for meals and close to shopping precinct.

    The only negative would be the fruit for breakfast was not to my liking I would have preferred prunes and fruit that is easy to eat.

    Location and affordability

    Patios and deck areas both in rooms and bbq area need to be better maintained and cleaned. Both areas had dirty ashtrays, cigarette butts and ash on floors.

    Comfortable bed.

    Had to leave early for a flight and we had to miss the breakfast that we'd paid for as breakfast wasn't served until 7 am.
