Recent guest reviews
We didn’t know what to expect with some of the reviews but ignore them. The reception staff couldn’t be more helpful especially Matthew, the pool and communal areas were clean and tidy, the room was great. Get a high one and a river view for the best experience especially if you’re coming New Year as you can watch the fireworks from a perfect vantage point. They’re well equipped and serviced daily. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else as all the residents we spoke to said the same.
We spent 4 nights here with our family in a 2 BDRM APT. The balcony overlooked the river and the apartment was spacious. Good amenities to use such as a pool and small Cardio gym. Close to queen st mall and Southbank.
We recently had an over night business trip in Brisbane and found this place ideal. Travelling north from interstate it was ideally suited as we didn't have to negotiate city traffic. Walked over the bridge to South Bank and easy walk into Queen Street. Matthew was on reception and was courteous, friendly, helpful and efficient. The apartment was high up with a tremendous city view with Mt Cootha in the background. Well appointed, clean and comfortable. It's now our 'go to' place whenever we are in Brisbane.
I traveled with my family , taking a two bedroom apartment . Little did I realize that there was just one bathroom which was very inconvenient . Also when you walk towards the rooms the carpets have a stink and the washing machines are dirty . While the location is wonderful , the rest of it is very wanting , given that there are plenty other options in the same area. I would not visit this place again
Had one night here with the family. Accommodation was acceptable and the location perfect near shops and restaurants. There is parking available and the building also has a swimming pool and gym. Unfortunately it is right next to a main road and the noise is quite loud. Request a room in the top half of the building to avoid the noise. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Would return.
Stayed at Evolution in September with friends from NSW. Great location. Walking distance to everywhere. Apartment was clean with everything you want for a comfortable stay. We stayed in a two bed apartment on the 5th floor. The balcony was extra large but the view of the river could not be seen unless you were standing up & the trees along the foreshore also obstructed the view. The best view was from the sky lounge on the 36th floor. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We are staying again in September 2018 & hopefully we will get an apartment on a higher floor with an unobstructed view of the river.
Stayed here with friends in a two bedroom apartment. The rooms were clean and comfortable however they felt very basic. There was nothing that really made the rooms wow. There was however a nice view of the river from the balcony. The location was good and walking distance to places like Queen St mall and also not too far from Fortitude Valley.
Have lived in Brisbane half of my life but moved away 15 years ago. Did not come for the sights unfortunately. We stayed two nights and the location was ideal for the event we needed to attend. The room was comfortable and had a nice view of the river even though they told us the studio rooms were not on the riverside when booking. The cost was good for a city room, so happy with that. However, room is accessible via car park which smelt rancid the whole time we were the. The room while clean to look at the attention to detail leaved a lot to be desired. The windows on the inside had dribble marks and smears of I don't know what, the wooden furniture looked clean but on the sides was white splash marks and looked like being there for a while. The wooden table in the lounge was about ready to collapse if you put anything heavy on it and the chairs cracked. When unit locked up all day we could smell mould and had to open the window. Good little kitchen, but location of power point no ideal as electric cords hang over the sink. The staff were friendly and the view from the Sky Deck was great. Like the idea of the BBQ's we could use if we were there for another purpose. Great breakfast place next door.
I read the other reviews and agree with the comments about location. I was able to exit the apartment and go for 2 runs on the north bank promade and the South Bank. Lots of people jogging, walking, and cycling. The taxi ride from the airport was about $43 and took approximately 30 minutes arriving mid morning. I stayed there with 2 friends so we had a 2 bedroom. My first impression of the bedrooms was that the beds seemed small like a double size versus queen size beds. My sleep was interrupted each night by a loud noise like a wind crashing into the room and I could not figure out what it was. My guess is it was coming from the vent in my bedroom; maybe something to do with the air conditioning. Liked the private patio and wonderful view of the river and South Bank. Other positives include: kitchen had all the basics (I.e. kettle, toaster, etc), in suite laundry (dryer made the bathroom very steamy), and spacious enough for 3 adults, and clean. It's a short walk to Queen Street shopping and bus stops to main attractions. Staff are friendly. Go check out the night view from the Sky Lounge room-it was a wonderful discovery on my last night. The room also contained a pool table. There was an outdoor pool but there wasn't enough time to use it. I looked at the gym and it had a few cardio machines. It didn't appeal to me as it was a narrow room with the user facing the wall-no view and a bit claustrophobic. Another guest who stays regularly uses the gym across the street which is 24/7. I hope this was helpful.
Nice location right on the river, but also the highway. Bring your earplugs - plenty of noise. But also relatively spacious apartments. If you can get it for the right price then go right ahead. Close to Suncorp too
