We are right on the edge of the massive 20 acre Roma Street Parklands. If they reckon that these are the lungs of the city, then you must be in the heart of it - and the guts of the CBD are right on your doorstep!
The river is only a block away, which means it's easy to jump a ferry (after all Brisbane is known as The River City), or walk across to the other side. Nearby West End is a hangout for galleries, museums and other alternative lifestyles.
You'll notice that safety and security are one of our big priorities - that's why we've installed a state-of-the-art fire safety system, as well as 24-hour guest access via security swipe cards into the building and all of the rooms.
Base Uptown has an array of facilities that ensure relaxed home-style comfort. A fully equipped self-catering kitchen adjoins the recreation room, complete with comfy lounges, board games, a television and an adjacent coin-operated laundry for the domestically inclined. All rooms come with en-suite which means no walking down the hall way in your towel!
The attached restaurant/bar the Guilty Rogue serves up great breakfast specials and is open for snacks, lunch and dinner. All guests get 20% off any purchase.The bar attracts a great mix of Brisvegas locals along with the international jet set. It goes off with groovy dance nights, weekly live music, sports events and music videos on the big-screens.
Budget travellers can choose from a great range of dorms, twins, or king-size hotel suites, all fully en-suited and air-conditioned.
