The Hotel Ibis.
Rothbury on Ann.
The Hotel Diana.
Getaway's search for good hotels in Australia's capital cities for around $100 a night continues this week in Brisbane.
The Hotel Ibis is in a great location in the centre of the city, with views to the Brisbane River, Southbank and west Brisbane. The building was formerly an office block and was totally made over into a hotel two years ago. It has a restaurant and bar.
The Point on Shafston is at Kangaroo Point, just across the Storey Bridge from the city. Just six months old, it is a very contemporary hotel and follows the New York and London trend of having oxygen canisters at the front desk for $15, in case you are stressed! The hotel has a restaurant and bar, pool, gym, tennis court and secure undercover parking.
The Rothbury on Ann was built in 1931. The heritage-listed building has marble-lined foyer and art deco staircase. Even the beautiful old lifts have leadlight glass. Ann Street is in the city and the hotel offers views of the skyline. Its roof garden has a sauna, spa and barbecue area and there is a restaurant, bar and undercover parking.
The Diana Plaza Hotel is in Woolloongabba near Brisbane's West End, which is the cafe district and not far from the city, the Gabba Cricket Ground and Southbank. It offers Brisbane's only Asian bathhouse and has an Apollo Health and Fitness Centre, complimentary to guests. There is a restaurant and bar and parking at the rear of the hotel.
The family-built and run Il Mondo Boutique Hotel is also at Kangaroo Point. Its rooms are individually furnished, it has alfresco dining, bar, saltwater lap pool and secure parking. This quirky, post-modern hotel has 22 rooms, 10 apartments and is a short stroll to ferries.
