Transformed hotel space delivers urban sophistication near parklands
The Hotel Urban Brisbane pairs a relaxing park-side location with sophisticated downtown decor. Public spaces in the hotel are light and airy. The design makes the most of Brisbane’s abundant supply of sunshine. Aromatic oil burners in the hotel’s public areas welcome guests with relaxing scents. The hotel sits on the edge of the city’s business district and many of Brisbane’s top attractions are a short walk away. The outdoor pool tempts guests into skipping afternoon plans.
Highlights
  • Neighbors the Roma Street Parklands
  • Modern decor has youthful and inviting vibe
  • Outdoor pool decorated with brilliant blue tiles
  • Luxury amenities without a five-star price tag
Rooms
The Hotel Urban’s rooms have a mid-century modern edge. The color palette of dark browns and greens plays off of the parklands next door. All rooms have private balconies or patios. Views from the rooms may be of the city skyline, Roma Street Parklands, or Mount Coot-tha. Plush bedding includes duvets and feather pillows. All guest rooms offer slippers, bathrobes, 32-inch flat-screen televisions, and Aveda bathroom amenities. Wireless Internet is available (fees may apply).
Features
Guests who want an exciting dining option need look no further than the hotel’s Gazebo Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant -- which serves breakfast, dinner, and room service -- features a menu that fuses contemporary Australian cuisine with Asian and Mediterranean flavors. Signature dishes include yellow exotic Thai curry prawns over jasmine rice. The dessert menu is also a highlight, with dishes like chocolate steamed pudding over a rich chocolate ganache and ice cream.

Disappointed

Service could be much better, such as not keeping one waiting too long. Internet access is not included; I wouldn't mind paying the extra ten dollars but it did not work most of the time and support was not helpful.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Downtown is a bit of a walk but once there you'll find a good selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, and stores. Bring a good amount of cash or a decent credit card if you want to have a good time; cost is very high.

Great Hotel

The Urban Hotel in Brisbane was fantastic. Our nicely decorated room had a large balcony that overlooked a beautiful park with a city skyline view. The staff was super helpful and extremely accommodating. The restaurant was wonderful - so great, in fact, that we ate there 2 nights during our 4-day stay. We had a personal friend that drove us around, so I don't know about transportation and its proximity to the hotel, but I'm certain the staff would help in every way possible. The hotel location was near the city without being in the city, so the streets weren't busy with traffic. Perfect place for a perfect hotel (although a hot tub would have been nice)

Very comfortable...

I was very impressed with the hotel. I am a very clean person and I was very comfortable in this hotel. It was also in walking distance to downtown and the gardens. It seams the transit center was close to for further travel. The staff was very welcoming and checked me in early when they found out I had just gotten off a 20 hour flight. And the airport shuttle was very convenient. Although there is current construction on the front of the building I would recommend this hotel it is very nice for the value.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Down town is close for shopping and the city botanical gardens are free and in walking distance just past the downtown area.
