Why you should book short stay apartments in Brisbane

    Categories: Brisbane Accommodation

Thanks to sites like Airbnb, travellers are now being savvier when it comes to getting value for money with their accommodation bookings and as such, the popularity of short stay apartments has skyrocketed over the past year or so. If you are yet to get on board and reap the rewards of such offerings, then perhaps it is time that you got on board because booking short stay apartments in Brisbane should be your only consideration.

As an accommodation provider that offers short stay apartments in Brisbane, in this article, I will point out the various benefits that such apartments have to offer over conventional accommodation in hotels. But first, let’s take a look at what a short stay apartment is.

Short stay apartments are serviced apartments, which are let out to occupants for short periods of time, such as for stays less than 7 days, less than 14 days and less than a month in duration. Such apartments are let out directly by the apartment owner, or by a management company on the behalf of owners.

Given this definition, it is clear that short stay apartments in Brisbane cater to all travel types – tourists, business travellers and even those new to the area looking for temporary accommodation until they find a permanent residence.

Let’s further take a look at why short stay apartments are ideal for all types of travellers.

Cheaper rates than hotels

The biggest advantage offered by short stay apartments in Brisbane over hotels is that they are much cheaper than hotels. While peak season rates may go up, short stay apartments still prove to be much more affordable than comparable hotels. Here at Bridgewater Terraces, our short stay apartment rates start at only $180 per night, which is much cheaper than any hotel in Brisbane CBD.

Let you experience local culture

Short stay apartments in Brisbane offer a more authentic holiday experience and allow you to experience like as a true local. By staying in serviced apartments, you get to cook your own meals, shop at the market with locals and live in a neighbourhood filled with local residents. By staying at your apartment for a few days, you can explore the surrounding area and learn more about how the locals like living their lives. Our short stay apartments are located at Kangaroo Point, just outside Brisbane’s CBD and you will have plenty of opportunities to mix and converse with locals in the area should you choose to stay with us.

Reduce food costs substantially

Short stay apartments in Brisbane, such as ours, offer fully equipped kitchens, where you can choose to cook your own meals. By shopping and cooking your meals, you can reduce food costs substantially, rather than eating out regularly, which you would otherwise need to do if you stayed in a hotel.

Offer all the facilities and amenities you need

While short stay apartments in Brisbane may be significantly cheaper than comparable hotel rooms, they still offer all the facilities and amenities you need. To start off with, short stay apartments are fully furnished apartments, which have more than one room, so you’ll have plenty of space. Moreover, our apartments offer many added facilities including laundry facilities, heated spa, sauna, BBQ area, gym, lagoon swimming pool and Wi-Fi connectivity, so you can enjoy living just the way you would at any hotel.

Whatever your reason for visiting Brisbane may be, if you are planning on a short stay, you cannot find better accommodation than what is offered by short stay apartments. Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, we offer luxurious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom serviced apartments which are fully furnished and ideal for short stays in Brisbane.


Short stay apartments in Brisbane offer far more benefits than standard hotel rooms. They are cheaper, allow you to experience the local culture, help you cut down on food costs and also offer you all the facilities and amenities you need. With so many reasons to choose from, you should definitely forget about booking hotel rooms and consider short stay apartments instead.
