I have stayed at Bowen Terrace twice over the past 3 months (3 nights each time) and each time I had a very pleasant stay. It is in a very good location; situated in a quiet, residential area outside the CBD with plenty of local facilites such as shops, restaurants and a cinema. The centre is around a 30-40 minute...

This small hotel has it all. It is located in the old italian area of Brisbane and the rustical wooden house is typical for this area. There are spotless rooms for travellers who want to book a room for two or as a single traveller, you can share a room with another traveller. There is a huge fridge and a...

This is my third visit it keeps getting better. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the wifi is excellent and there is plenty of light and authetic atmosphere. I split my stay to make a short trip to Sydney and Maria had everything ready for me so when I returned it was like coming home!

Loved the 1 night stay here. Had a room with a fan and a very comfortable bed. There was no air conditioning which could be an issue in really hot weather but the ceiling fan worked well. The accommodation is simple but chic and in a good, quiet location. It was very clean and the layout was easy to navigate...

Our stay at Bowen Terrace was a nightmare. They gave us room 10 in the cellar. It is an EFFRONTERY to rent such a hole! The "room" has "windows" to the ground and to a wall. You cannot see the sky and get no oxigen at all. We could hardly breathe and there was an awful smell of mold and...

I stayed here a while ago and forgot to write this review but the guy working at the front desk who checks people in and out was so rude. He was the manager and had no clue how to welcome foreigners. He was snappy and harsh. He just wanted to take your money and get you out of his hair....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bowen Terrace Accommodation provides affordable and friendly accommodation for travellers and visitors from all over the world. Family owned and operated, Bowen Terrace Accommodation will provide you with that "home away from home" feel in a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere. The style of the house is known as a 'Queenslander' and reflects unique Australian heritage. It features elevated structure with comfortable bedrooms off the long hallway, front and back veranda's, and traditional architecture that allows to experience a part of the typical Queensland lifestyle. When you're relaxing out on the back deck on a warm summer's evening, listening to the mangos drop from the tree onto the roof, you'll see just how laid-back this city can be. Yet you are just minutes from the city lights that illuminate the beautiful Brisbane skyline as well the vibrant Fortitude Valley entertainment area and a host of some of Brisbane's best cafes are along nearby Brunswick Street. ... more   less
