Hotel Review – Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments
Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments are located in one of Brisbane’s hippest inner-city suburbs. It’s just one suburb over from where I previously lived a few years ago.
I distinctly recall the day I drove past the Alex Perry Hotel very soon after the doors opened.
My first thoughts were not ‘the’ Alex Perry? Creator of some of the most beautiful Australian fashion? My thoughts immediately turning to the decor, fittings, the opulence, and luxury. Yes, it was ‘the’ Alex Perry!
Fortunately, we had the opportunity recently to experience a 2-night stay at the Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment and as it turned out my imagination hadn’t served me wrong!
Think, understated luxury, quality fittings, beautiful linen and even fully equipt kitchen that would do any Masterchef proud.
We have stayed in many self-contained apartments all over the world and the thoughtfulness of the inclusions at Alex Perry is outstanding.
What do I mean by that?
It’s the little things, which, as we know are actually the BIG things when we stay at a home away from home.
For example, most apartments I’ve stayed offer ‘a’ glass or two in a bare kitchen cupboard. However, at the Alex Perry Apartments, there’s a full selection of glasses. In fact 4 of each including tumblers, white wine glasses, red wine glasses and champagne flutes.
Every type of kitchen utensil you’d have in your home kitchen and what REALLY impressed me in the bathroom these…
Now I know you might be wondering why I think these are SO important? I guess you’d have to know I’m a blowdryer snob. Many years of standing on the floor as a hairstylist and travelling the world lead to this you see?
Most blow dryers in the swankiest hotels provide a blowdryer that could barely dry your eyebrows, so the GHD brand of dryer impressed me no end. It’s an indication of the standard of ALL the fixtures, fittings and inclusions at the Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments.

When you venture up to the rooftop, not only do you have a 360 degree of Brisbane, there’s also a heated swimming pool for year-round swimming or laps. The rooftop also houses an enormous entertainment area with large screens and BBQ’s and a fully equipt gym.
We were in Brisbane to attend the RNA showgrounds for an expo, so the location of the Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments was perfect for us.
It would be as equally perfect if you are in Brisbane for the races at Eagle Farm or Doomben. Or a conference or even for business during the week.
Alex Perry would be my choice due to it’s proximity to everything. Some of Brisbane’s best restaurants and bars, New Farm Park, the Powerhouse and the famous James Street precinct is right on the doorstep!
Secure parking is available although we didn’t use our car once, preferring to walk to James Street one evening for dinner. On another evening we met friends across the road at Tartufo, an Italian Restaurant located in the Emporium precinct.
You can easily access public transport too if you need. With the train station 10 minutes walk away and numerous bus stops on Ann Street, you can’t go wrong booking your next stay in Brisbane at the Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments.
