Accommodation Brisbane is a guide to all of the different types of places you can stay in the Brisbane area, ranging from hotels to motels, bed and breakfast or hostels, and long-stay accommodation.
As you'd expect, a city the size of Brisbane has a wide variety of accommodations that suit all tastes and wallets.
Brisbane is a lovely city to stay in, and the fact that many of the suburbs are fairly close to the river means that you get a cool breeze off it.
The area you will choose will, of course, depend on your reason for being in the city.
You will have different needs if you are visiting for a short time, compared to if you will be a long term resident, due to attending an educational institution in the city.
All the regular hotel chains are represented around the Spring Hill area, and this location is on the Brisbane free bus circuit with frequent shuttles to downtown.
For short staying backpackers or newly arriving students, hostels, such as the Kookaburra Inn, provide great value.
One of the pleasures of visiting a new city, or even an old one, is shopping.
If this is something you're interested in, picking your hotel wisely can cut down on a lot of carrying.
For the business traveler, hotels in the CBD, with its links to corporate head offices and the excellent rail link to the airport are the best option.
Note that the Fortitude Valley area is quite close by, and has two fine hotels in Chester's and the Emporium.
Similarly, if you're planning to attend one of Brisbane's many universities, be sure to pick your starting out accommodation to suit.

For those who are here for a longer stay, visiting workers for example, furnished apartments and flats can be found throughout the city.
Spring Hill, which overlooks the CBD and Queen Street Mall, is another popular place for visitors to stay.
