The age-old debate – Hotel or Apartment?

Hotel or Apartment

When it comes to a Brisbane holiday, most people consider booking hotel rooms without any second thought. But, there is also another option – Brisbane apartments. With the likes of Airbnb, several holiday apartments are available to guests in Brisbane. Over the recent past, such self-contained apartments have also gained a lot of popularity with Brisbane tourists.

So, which one of the two is a better choice for you? Well, as the manager of Brisbane holiday apartments, my opinion will obviously be somewhat biased. But, I’ll offer you some compelling reasons why holiday apartments in Brisbane are much better.

So, continue reading this post as I compare what you’ll get with a Brisbane apartment versus a Brisbane hotel. When you’re done reading, you too will see what apartments are the better choice.

Holiday apartments are more spacious than hotels

Unless you’re really looking to splurge on hotel accommodation, most hotels will offer you a small, cramped room and not much else. If you’re visiting Brisbane with friends or family, you really don’t want to be cramped into a single room. In such a case, you may even have to book multiple hotel rooms, but this can get really expensive.

On the other hand, holiday apartments offer you all the space you need. Holiday apartments are completely self-contained and offer separate bedrooms, separate bathrooms, a common lounge and dining area, a balcony, a kitchen and more. At Bridgewater Terraces, our Brisbane apartments are also available in 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom configurations. Regardless of how large your group is, you’ll never fall short on space staying with us.

You can cook your meals in holiday apartments

Like I mentioned, most Brisbane apartments come with a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook your meals. This is something that you won’t get in a hotel.

Why cook your meals on holiday, you ask? Well, it’s because food bills are one of the highest expense you’ll incur on your holiday in Brisbane. Why not cut down on your food and accommodation expenses by staying with us at Bridgewater Terraces and cooking your meals? You’ll save enough to spend on other activities to make your Brisbane holiday more memorable.

Holiday apartments offer great facilities

If you think that holiday apartments don’t offer the same quality or as many facilities as hotels then you may be mistaken. Granted, apartments, just like hotels, that have a low star rating may not have much to offer. But, Brisbane apartments such as those we offer at Bridgewater Terraces offer facilities and amenities on par, if not better than most Brisbane hotels.

Our holiday apartments include free Wi-Fi, entertainment systems, air conditioning, a TV and DVD player, direct dial phone and a complimentary car parking space. Moreover, if you stay in one of our apartments, you’ll get to enjoy resort facilities such as a sauna, spa, swimming pool, gym, and BBQ as well. Good luck finding any cost-effective hotel in Brisbane which offers you such great facilities.

Apartments are cheaper than hotels

Most hotels are similarly priced depending on their location and the quality of accommodation. In Brisbane, hotel prices are somewhat on the higher side as we’re a cosmopolitan city. However, holiday apartments in Brisbane are still available at cost-effective prices.

Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, our holiday apartments start upwards of only $145 per night. Most hotels and holiday apartments in Brisbane are far more expensive. By choosing one of our Brisbane apartments as your accommodation, you’ll certainly save on your holiday dollar.


When it comes to finding Brisbane accommodation, you have two options on hand – hotels or Brisbane apartments. Brisbane holiday apartments are more spacious than hotels, and they also allow you to cook your meals and dine-in. Some holiday apartments in Brisbane offer facilities and amenities that rival those of hotels. Finally, Brisbane holiday apartments are usually cheaper than hotels.
