The studio apartment is good for 2 people and had a lot of room! Free WiFi, Parking and Foxtel Channels were a perk. The bed was so comfy and location was great if you are going to The Gabba or wanting to see Brisbane sights! Had a lovely restaurant downstairs and even does $3.50 delivery :D

Went to see the cricket at the Gabba so this place was great for an over night stop over with the option of early check in for an extra $20 and parking included in the room price unlike many other hotels.
