Spacious, modern and clean apartment. Friendly, helpful staff. Walking distance from central shopping precinct. Lovely pool and spa facilities.
Mostly, its location - close to services, etc. It was spacious and well equipped
the hotel did not have airconditioners in every bedroom and it was very stuffy. The fans did not have a slow speed even (slow was too fast), so were useless to use Also, they must use perfumed cleaning products or something on the carpet, that gave us all blocked noses. I would not stay there again unless they did something about the airconditioning in the bedrooms
Great location. Beautiful view. Loved that we had two bathrooms and that the apartment was fully equiped. The staff were really lovely and helpful. Really enjoyed our stay there!!
Good location, best for having your own cooking.
It's perfect for family
We only stayed 1 night and as there were two couples if we stayed longer we would probably want 2 bathrooms or at last a separate toilet but apart from that it was great. Good location close to where we dropped the hire car off - Europecar and also close to city shops and Chinatown.
- Everything was worth every dollar!
Not important but it would be good to have the cleaners clean once every two days.
Very friendly helpful staff and the location and rates were fantastic.
Only criticism (and a very mild one) would be that the living area was a little cramped.
lovely apartments with terrific views and everything we needed as a family- some things looking a little tired but generally excellent value for money. access to supermarket and grog shop next door was extremely convenient. pool area was very nice and a great place to catch the sun even on a winters afternoon although too cool for me to go swimming. Young children and their families were loving it though. spa warm enough for a dip if so inclined. gym area available for those inclined and empty on the days we stayed at republic. all in all we had a great stay and enjoyed being close but not right in the city - republic is just on the edge of the cbd and a walk to the river and most things or close to the free city loop bus if you;re too tired to walk.
Good accomodation at a decent price.
Some fittings in the apartment were damaged. Not much food in close proximity.
Upon arrival, we were slightly late and attempted to gain entry to retain a key. We waited for about 10 minutes outside the front entry attempting to open a safe with our room key inside. This safe was not working and eventually an employee gave assistance to us and we gained entry into our room. Whilst we were waiting we felt very uncomfortable due to people coming and going from the hotel. Not a good experience to start with. When we arrived in our room, we found the unit to be very clean, but a lot smaller than what we expected due to the price. The view was not what the web site portrayed, we found we were looking at the lower levels of buildings. We found the toilet leaking and the toilet seat unfixed and moving around. Also there was no fan or a/c, heater in our room as we felt at times quite warm. After accessing the lift a number of times we found the swipe tag not working and we would on a number of occasion end up on the wrong floor, each and every time we used the lift. On both nights members from the adjoining rooms decided to have an extremely loud domestic at around 3.00am waking, me my wife and the kids. This was very annoying. On the first night someone attempted to gain entry into our unit at about 10.00am by working the door handle after knocking on the door and yelling out. The unknown persons then yelled out that they may have got the wrong address. As I am a police officer, I obviously made sure the family was safe then investigated the matter. The unknown persons had left when I went to have a look. None of these things were reported due to me not wanting to cause any more anxiety to my wife and 2 young children. Overall the experience was poor. The service can't be commented on as we only met one person. The unit appeared to be run down and sadly lacking in repairers and maintenance as was the lift. We travelled from Bundaberg to stay in Brisbane for Disney on ice at Boondall.
towels had hairs, bed squeaked, carpet smells.
The location of the Republic Apartments is wonderful. Close to shopping malls, restaurants, grocery, transportation - all within walking distance. The staff is great. Always attentive to every issue and request. Very happy to assist with luggage, directions, calling cabs; any concierge service needed! Having the use of the full kitchen and laundry facilities was great. Much needed for the long stay. The large patio/terrace with the huge sliding doors was great to come home to after a long day. Best value around the cbd!
This is a very comfortable hotel, but if you are into super cleanliness, you may be disappointed. The furnishings are dated and slightly worn, the bathroom could be cleaner (mostly in the shower and around the shower doors), the refrigerator and entire kitchen could use a good scrubbing (our dishes needing washing before use, the cooktop needed degreasing, our tea kettle was grimey and the fridge door had mold starting to grow on the seal). A few repairs were also needed in the unit, but staff was quickly sent and the everything was well taken care of. I think a few details were overlooked - and it happened to be my room with all the issues!
Location of Apartments made it easy to get around the centre of Brisbane. Apartments also had free parking which is a real bonus in the city.
Hotel was as expected and have nothing that I didn't like.
The room smelt strongly of cooking fat /very Strong / unpleasant Asian?.Indian cooking/ fat smell
This place is simply amazing, the staff were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to ensure my room was clean and sorted out, Parking was free and so was the wireless with lovely speed, access was well sort out and no dramas with any part of my week stay there, I will be back at the end of the year, nothing comes close, the room whilst yes was a little old the decor suited 2011 styling and fit the bill lovely, no dramas with any of the room either, the airconditioner and heater worked, the tv and foxtel worked, the hotel lifts worked and were really fast, if I could say one thing about warren the manager, it would be he is extremely polite and on top of everything !!!
