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.

Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Arena Apartments by CLLIX is celebrated for its spacious, contemporary apartments and a location favored by guests for its convenience to local events and transport hubs. However, opinions on the service are split, with reports of both professionalism and lack of responsiveness. While the amenities, including a heated pool, are generally appreciated, some visitors suggest a need for more rigorous maintenance and additional pool umbrellas. The atmosphere is acknowledged for its modernity, but the value proposition is debated due to cleanliness concerns and variable pricing.

NauticalDreamer3010 wrote a review Sept 2021
Buddina, Australia
4.0 of 5 bubbles
We were in Brisbane for a show at QPAC an a visit to the art gallery. This place was an easy 10 minute stroll to that area or for that matter South Brisbane Station.

I'm not sure how old the complex is but our one bedroom apartment felt brand new. It had a spacious living area, a well equiped kitchen, a huge TV, indoor and outdoor seating areas and a very comfy king size bed.

Our only minor issue was that the blinds didn't fully cover the windows and a bright light from an office building shined in to our eyes all night. This could be more of a problem in Summer when the sun rises very early.

Secure parking under the building was only $15 per day. There were plenty of dining options within a 5 minute walk. The pool area looked very enticing.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

Very swanky apartment. Let down slightly by scuff marks around the place & broken ironing board. Shower was spacious. The apartment had a washing machine & dryer (not one of those combo washer/dryers, it actually worked). They wanted to charge for parking since I booked it on an external sight. I arrived on a Friday night and there wasn’t a feee park in sight which was an issue. I came back after my concert for a late check in where free parking was available just up the road.

We stayed in the Arena apartments for a family weekend away. The apartment was lovely, modern and clean with everything you need - kettle, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. We were two adults and one toddler and had plenty of living space in our one bedroom apartment.
Great location, we were able to walk everywhere and enjoyed the huge selection of restaurants nearby. There is also an IGA not too far away.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

Location was within walking distance to an engagement party we were attending for the weekend and we stayed 2 nights I booked one room for myself and a second for my parents. Both rooms were average for cleanliness and general maintenance of the appliances and amenities (my parents room had so many issues). Check in was not the smoothest and be prepared that in order to depart you are going to have to find somewhere to park elsewhere first in order to then go and hand keys in before departure (if you have car parking). Cost for a 2 night apartment would have been reasonable if everything ran smoothly and everything we touched didn't feel slight unsafe and unclean.

After having several messages sent by Arena for arrival time and each message was replied to, our room was still not ready when we arrived after check-in time and waited over 90 minutes after driving 10 hours for the room to be ready. The room that was booked was supposed to be deluxe and this room was far from deluxe furniture and the furniture and room was very worn. The kids were supposed to get a surprise present as part of our booking and they didn't get one. We had a lot more complaints that were addressed by them but no compensation for the shoddy room or our room not ready. We have stayed previously and loved it but we were far from happy this time

Very good booking service but the apartment was not clean and smelled like old cooking. Stains on carpet, rug, curtains & cushions. Bedside lamps, looked like they’d never been cleaned. Freezer dirty (melted ice-blocks). One teaspoon! After calling reception, the freezer was cleaned first thing the next morning & spoons provided, so prompt response. The apartment was not representative of what we got, disappointing.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on level 10 for a week. The room had a well equipped kitchen and views to the pool (which was noisy despite being 10 floors up). Nice enough BUT was poorly maintained. We couldn’t open the blinds covering half the bedroom because the track fitting had been pulled from the ceiling; the toilet seat was loose and a towel rail fell off the wall. We also enjoyed a random beep through the first 48 hours of the stay which we eventually traced to an NBN modem low battery alarm. We muted the alarm and reported it to Reception. Reception wasn’t that interested and advised us to keep muting the alarm. Overall we felt that the apartment was a bit shoddy despite being quite new. For the money we think we would stay elsewhere next time.

The apartments are in a great location for West End and South Bank. The two bedrooms were a good size and kitchen was pretty well equipped. Nice hot walk in shower with soft white towels. Living room very small with one 3 seater sofa that should have been thrown on verge well before we arrived. Balcony looked like it had not been mopped since previous visitors as there was cigarette ash on the floor. Would have preferred it if French doors were toddler proof with being on the 10th floor. No way would you book this place for 4 adults but if your a couple wanting to enjoy the delights of the Brisbane cafe are bar scene then go for it.

Perfect location and amenities for a family weekend getaway. The view from our apartment was spectacular overlooking the pool and the city nightlights. The apartment itself was well maintained and the air-conditioning was a blessing during this heatwave. The only thing I would ask to improve on is more umbrella shades around the pool.

Stayed here early 2023 for 2 weeks and still very good this stay over Christmas. Clean, Quiet & Comfortable, parquet floor in lounge makes the apartment feel fresh and cool with sublime vented air conditioning to counter what was a hot week in Brisbane. Great bed. Large balcony. Farhat ? the chap on reception was very professional and friendly in checking me in. Also a nice welcome box of lovely snacks, savoury & sweet which was a pleasure to devour. The unit otherwise well stocked with everything. Netflix in the room. Really enjoyed the weeks stay.
