The Sebel Brisbane is a part of the Accor Hotels group and located right in the heart of the City at 95 Charlotte Street and was the perfect base for us to explore the City of Brisbane. It is a 4.5-star full service apartment style hotel which has studio rooms and one and two bedroom self-contained apartments. We are sharing information and our review of The Sebel Brisbane below.
With parking being quite expensive and traffic heavy, location is your friend when finding accommodation in Brisbane. The Sebel Brisbane was perfect for us, with it being only two blocks from Queen Street Mall, (a huge pedestrian mall with over 700 stores for any serious shoppers) and a 20-minute stroll to South Bank Parklands, across Victoria Bridge.
With our girls being young we stayed in a one-bedroom apartment. A queen size sofa bed in the lounge area, King bed (upon request) along with a complimentary porter cot was the bedding configuration. The bathroom had a shower over a bath with beautiful smelling Appelles bathroom amenities.
The lounge room had a 3-seater dining table, and as we stayed close to the top floor, of a night you could watch the twinkling lights from our balcony of the inner-city skyline with the Wheel of Brisbane in the distance.
The kitchenette was small but fully functional with mini bar refrigerator, convection microwave, 2 burner stove, dishwasher, crockery and cutlery, dishwasher and front load washing machine/dryer (combination unit).

Extra little services you receive by staying at a place like The Sebel Brisbane was wifi, on-demand movies, Foxtel, daily housekeeping and 24-hour in-room dining provided by The Croft House Town Kitchen and Bar.
For our two night stay it was the perfect arrangement however if you prefer space, have older children or would be staying longer, it may be worth upgrading to the two-bedroom apartment. The sofa-bed took up most of the room in the lounge area, so there wasn’t a great deal of space to move around.
The Croft House Town Kitchen and Bar, is located on the street corner of Albert and Charlotte. This restaurant has recently been named one of the Best New Restaurant’s in Brisbane by Style Magazines. The Croft House offers restaurant patrons a variety of seating styles including banquette and larger tables for groups.
Even though the restaurant looked extremely inviting, we chose not to dine with “young” children as this did not seem like the clientele it attracted.
There are restaurants to satisfy and sublime cafes located mere metres of The Sebel Brisbane, which gave us plenty of choice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We also tested the dessert selections with the trendy Doughnut Time and a huge Baskin Robbins only 2 minutes away.
Parking in Brisbane is expensive, and it is rare that you can drive anywhere within the City perimeter without paying. The Sebel Brisbane provides car parking to guests for $28 per 24 hours (self park). This rate is good value compared to other parking areas.

With only staying the two nights and satisfying our time with Brisbane adventures we did not use The Sebel Brisbane’s extra facilities. However, we did go exploring and found on level 5 a small gym for the adults and a lap pool and spa on an outside terrace for guests to enjoy.
