We had a room at the Brisbane Street Studios for a week in March 2011 and found them to be much smaller than we anticipated but they were clean and had all we needed for a weeks stay. The biggest problem is the noise. The apartments sit on the corner of Brisbane Street and the Ipswich Road and at the side of the Princess Alexandra Hospital. The Ipswich road is a 3 lane highway into Brisbane central and is always very busy and very noisy even at 6.00 am. We never slept later than 6.30am. Also, the helipad for the hospital is right behind the apartments and we were woken 3 times one night with helicopters landing and taking off. Not Good!
The train and bus stations are a 10 minute walk away. The owners also gave us a parking permit to park on the street but we had to pay a $40 deposit for it but it was refundable.
I would recommend anyone looking to stay for more than a few nights to try and find somewhere quieter.
