Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Firstly I will start my review by stating the purpose of my stay here was not for a relaxing holiday. The apartments are located directly across the road from the PA hospital in Brisbane on the Ipswich road. The apartments are not noisy and you can get a good nights sleep. We chose to stay here primarily to visit an ill relative at the hospital. We stayed for 3 nights and have to say that our stay was comfortable and we were happy. From the time I made my enquiry to the time we checked out the service from the helpful staff was excellent. We needed an immediate booking due to the fact a relative had been rushed to the PA and requested a 2 bedroom apartment but unfortunately these were all full but the lady on reception kindly offered to add an extra bed to the one bedroom apartment to accommodate us all. They did not charge for the extra bed for the youngest child. When we arrived the room was clean, and comfortable. The apartments have an older section facing the Ipswich road and newer apartments towards the back. The lower apartments have a small courtyard. Although our room was older and could have had a few items renewed the facilities provided were all adequate. Ie, a kitchen with full oven and fridge, cooking utensils, a shower, washing machine and clothes dryer, clean linen, air con, TV, table and chairs and a roomy balcony with clothesline. There is secured basement parking and also a number of parks on site near the newer block. There is also a common garden area with outdoor table and a BBQ. There is no pool. There seemed to be a number of people staying here that were on holidays, given the affordable price and the fact that it is located so close to the city. The new clem 7 tunnel (city bypass) is very close to the apartments so if you needed to get to northern brisbane it only takes a few minutes and avoids an awful lot of traffic. Public bus access is at your door and the apartments would make suitable accommodation for those not wishing to stay directly in the city. There are a number of good affordable takeaway restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, so too is a Burandah shopping centre. There is a woolworths, target and numerous specialty shops and ATM's here. Wifi is available for a fee. There are also business facilities, foxtel and breakfast is available at an adjoining cafe. There are also apartments for disabled guests.

I stayed at the apartments (rear block) for 4 days, and I was surprised when I opened the door. After reading the reviews on here, I was hesitant of what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Room was clean, and crisp. white sheets, that smelt fresh, the kitchen was clean and fresh. When turning on the aircon, I thought it would be stinky, but it was fresh. It had a spacious clean bathroom, with washing machine and dryer. Efficient clothes storage, with spare pillows and blankets, which were also clean and fresh. There are many lights to choose from so you can set your own mood, and a table to eat at or to use the computer. there is a lounge, and tv which had all your free to air channels, plus 6 fox channels. The apartments are private, and quiet. It is off Ipswich road, and during the day you can hear the cars and trucks, and at night, the ambulences, but it is right across the road from the Princess Alexandra Hospital, so you would expect a certain level of noise. if inside, with the tv on and aircon, it soon blocks out. The best part about these apartments, is that its so close to the shops, including woolworths, burunda shopping village, cafes, newsagents, bakery, and lucky7. The Bus stop is right out the front of the PA hospital, and the buses come so often, it is extremely easy to get too and from the city. I rate this 5/5 and if had to stay down here again for health treatment, this is the place to be.

These apartments are located adjacent to the Princess Alexandra apartments and are clean and functional. If you need to be near the PA hospital then this is practical but BEWARE the phone charges they charge customers are in excess of $1.25 per minute and there is no notice advising customers of these high rates - we got slugged with a phone charge bill of close to $46 for 2 local and 5 STD phone calls. When I complained to Mgt they told me I'm the first to ever complain and that the phone rates will be increasing on 1st July 2011 to help absorb costs so beware if you stay here use your mobile it will be cheaper.

My partner was admitted to the PA ICU in critical condition with a life threatening illness. I had thw misfortune of booking accomation at this hotel. I called to book another night on the second morning and booked another night and said I would be over later to pay. It was early afternoon When an employee approached the room where my mother in law had taken respite. The staff member was abusive and aggressive towards her telling her to get out that the room had not been paid for yet despite them taking a credit card swipe previously. As if we were not going through enough we were forced to deal with an aggressive uncompassionate staff member. I attended the office and was fired upon by the same staff member. I have never been spoken too like that before. If your still not convinced about studying her, it cost $124 a night and the room was not cleaned the fridge was broken as was the dryer. and the chairs in the ICU were more comfortable to sleep on than the beds which were rock hard. Absolutely disgusted

Relative was suddenly taken to PA and the young girl who answered the phone on the Tuesday right before Christmas was brilliant and very helpful BUT that is where is stopped. The two bedroom apartment was meant to be a cheaper rate if staying more than two nights. We stay 3 but were charged the full rate then moved to two one bedrooms from Christmas Eve to boxing Day, again chargedthe full rate. As they could not accommodate us again in a two bedder until the follwoing week and our realtive had come out of hospital for what was supposed to be two weeks we decided to find something else until the 9th of January and then planned to come back to Apexandra Apartments. That all turned pear shaped when our realitive was suddenly admitted back to hospital on boxing day and his wife spent the night by his side. She called Alexandra Apartments on the Tuesday morning at 8am and asked if her old room was available. It was and had not yet been cleaned and she was happy as she just wanted to sleep the day. Upon arriving she noted that needed toilet paper and saw the cleaners cupboard open, she grabbed a roll then went to find the cleaner to say what she had done. He went off and accused her of Stealing and said if she wanted 5 star service she should go down the road. A bit taken aback she left the paper, went to her room and called management to explain she just wanted some toilet paper and she had been up all night and needed sleep if they could please leave it at the door. The manager then called her back 30 mins later (just as she was about to get some sleep) to say someone was bringing it around. Again she said she would be sleeping please leave at the door. 30 mins later there was a knock on the door which she ignored. Someone then decided it would be a good idea to use the leave blower outsider her room. When she finally got up there was no toilet paper so her son left his dad's bedside at hospital to go to the shop to buy some. I agree with other comments that the rooms are very BEHIND THE TIMES and the TV's are teriible. Yes it is convenient but we found a much better room at Central dockside (2 bedroom with direct river views, undercover parking and much more modern facilities) for $40.00 a night cheaper. Also to top it all off the Manager at Alexandra charged the full rate for the room used Tuesday which had not been cleaned and when we questioned him the following day and advised that he missed out on 3 weeks accomodation at least all he wanted to do was argue. Wish I had read other reviews earlier but it defintalty served the purpose of being close to the hospital. 24 hr reception is a load of rubbishl I actually fell into a deep sleep after being up all the previous night at the PA and my family were worried about me and could not wake me. They went to reception to try and get a key but it was closed so called the number on the door, that was 24/12/11 we are still waiting for a call back. IF YOU HAVE TIME FIND SOMETHING ELSE!!!!

This place is absolutely disgusting. My sick mother who had just gone through a kidney transplant was offered to stay here through government subsidy which we thought oh hell yeah! So we came to visit her and was horrified. The place smelt like they were trying to cover up the smell of death, it is as old as a dinosaur and hasn't been updating since Elvis was born. It is of such poor quality that jail would have been a better choice! The place is a horrible colour smell and feel. Exposed brick, felt like the elevator was going to break, car park was like a pedo basement, rooms tiny as, everything so so old it was just uncomfortable, depressing and horrible. Then when I had to move my mother to the pa apartments across the road which are lovely by the way, the owner was an absolute cock and was in no way being customer orientated, just disappointed that the money was no longer going into his greasy hands.
Hope the place burns to the ground. Just awful. Please don't ever burden yourself to stay there.

Hospital booked my room, my husband planned to hang around and have dinner with me, but after seeing the standard of the room, he decided he would rather sit in peak hour traffic and headed back to the Gold Coast. He informed family that I was staying in 2 star accommodation and he hasn't seen accomodation that bad in Asia. I had 3 single beds in the room, one of which was pushed up against a small square dining table. The hallway inside the apartment looked like the outside of an old apartment block, no bed head, to watch tv or read you had to rest your head against a concrete wall, not even a bedside lamp, the tiled wall in the bathroom, was cracked from the door way round to the shower. The lift area is appalling, It is the oldest looking place I have ever stayed in, apartments at the back are not as old, but the front needs to be demolished.

We stayed there 4 weeks in July. This apartment (had 2 bedrooms, lounge with kitchen) was dark, very humid, bad ventilation. Home electronics looks very old. If they say, that weekly cleaning is foe on Thursday from 9-11.00. Then just don’t be surprised, if change your clothes at 10.00 or you have important phone call, they definitely will enter, cleaning team with 3 or 4 people, and they start to change the bed and clean. And better don’t disturb with your visit or phone call reception, because they have so much work, that you are not welcome.
Probably you know that it is located in very noisy experience, opposite of the street is PA Hospital and helicopters are there very often and they really shake houses.
I have travelled a lot, but never had so bad experience.

Situated close to The Princess Alexandra Hospital Brisbane, this dingy hovel is not some where to consider whilst visiting the hospital or convalescing.
As you can see from the photos below these appartments are in need of some TLC of their own .
To look beyond the dated decor is doable however to be greeted by cockroaches is difficult to ignore . To add insult to injury (pardon the pun) we were advised by a member of staff that it's not the big cockroaches you need to worry about it's this little ones ! As he arrived in our room carrying some insect spray ready to give our room the once over .
Needless to say we found fabulous accomodation very close by and Post Operative recuperation was successful.

After reading some of the reviews here i was a bit worried, but found the service, rooms and price all excellent. Very roomy and plenty of space with all that you could need for a very comfortable stay here. Bed was great and everything was very clean. I will be definitely staying there again. Just a tip for others, ask for one of the back newer apartments. I was very happy.
