Next Hotel Brisbane
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The first hotel in Australia to allow guests to automate both check-in and check-out, NEXT took over Lennons in 2014 and, with its focus on cutting edge technology, brought an old-school lodge to the forefront of Brisbane’s accommodation market.
The rooms aren’t huge but excellently appointed — crisply modern, with plenty of dark wood and large comfy beds — all come with a smartphone that controls everything from the television to the air-conditioning.
Perched at one of the highest points of Queen Street Mall, it has excellent views across the entire city, the open-air fourth level hotel bar allowing you to people watch on the shoppers below.
Time Out tip: Ask for a room at the southern corner to catch a glimpse of the river and South Bank beyond.
