One of Brisbane’s best boutique hotels also boasts some of its best deals. Gambaro is a darkly luxurious property set right on top of the buzzy Caxton Street entertainment precinct. The fit-out of plush carpet, cool surfaces and warm lighting pitch it at no-expense spared couples getaways but one of the hotel’s Atrium Rooms can be had for a relative steal. You’re talking a room size of just 20 square metres here but for the price you’re getting complimentary wireless, Appelles black label bath products and 24-7 concierge and in-room dining services.
Outside the hotel, the Caxton Street precinct tends to hop at night — particularly award-winning bars Seymour’s Cocktails & Oysters and Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall — and the CBD, the Barracks precinct, Suncorp Stadium and the swanky suburb of Paddington are all a short walk away. Just be aware that things can get rowdy — and probably a little more expensive — on game nights.
Time Out tip: Paddington, just up the hill, is a Brisbane breakfast and brunch hotspot. Make a morning of it and take some extra time to peruse the shops along Given Terrace.
