In this article, we want to give you a glimpse of the best areas in the city of Brisbane to stay in if you are visiting the city. We want to tell you that it is a large city (capital of the state of Queensland and third-largest city in Australia). So, if you do not pay much attention before booking accommodation, you may end up sleeping quite far from “where all the action.”
Luxury hotels Brisbane by accommodation
Brisbane gave us the same feeling as other cities in Australia (such as Melbourne and Sydney, for example), where most of the attractions are quite concentrated in a small area. Staying far from that area implies that you have to move a lot to visit the most attractive parts of the city.
It is the downtown area of Brisbane (CBD = Central Business District) and here we believe that it is the best area to stay. First, because many of the attractions are around the CBD: Southbank is very close, museums too, you have many places to shop and eat, Kangaroo Point is at a “walkable” distance (if you like to walk) and neighborhoods like Fortitude Valley or New Farm have fundamental proximity.
In addition, in this neighborhood, all the public transport of the city converges (train, buses, ferries) so it will not be difficult for you to visit more remote places.
Finally, the accommodation offer is vast and ranges from high-class hotels to very cheap hostels.The city center and financial center. You’ll be close to everything and even the South Bank on the waterfront.

Very close to the CBD is this nice downtown neighborhood. There is not as much noise and movement as in the center (weekdays) but it is well located and very close to many attractions.
We found it a very good area because it is between the CBD and Fortitude Valley, so we could move between the most interesting neighborhoods of the city on foot and quickly. Southbank is also relatively close.
The only thing we would put “bad” is that if you go from the CBD to this neighborhood, you will have to climb a slope (hence its name Hill ), so we recommend you check the location of your accommodation well if this is a condition important to you.
