Aimed squarely at the business traveller, Amora Hotel Brisbane ensures there’s room for more than just work at its centrally located premises. Read on for the full review.
In addition to the comfy, well-equipped suites with sturdy work desks and free wi-fi in the heart of Brisbane city, guests of this property will find a generous gym, sauna and swimming pool, perfect for post-meeting wind-downs.
Where is Amora Hotel Brisbane?
Sandwiched between Brisbane city and Spring Hill, Amora Hotel Brisbane is less than 15 minutes walk from either and an easy 20-minute drive from Brisbane Airport.
What’s near Amora Hotel Brisbane?
Riverside Ferry Terminal, the gateway to South Bank and its galleries, is less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel, while the popular shopping drag of Queen Street Mall is about seven minutes away on foot. Weekend crowds pool in Fortitude Valley, where cafés overflow with brunchgoers and boutique trawlers, and you can find great coffee there on any day of the week — and it’s just a 15-minute stroll away.
Simply furnished and flushed with natural light, Amora’s rooms focus on comfort. In Premier Balcony rooms, located on the top floor of the hotel, there are city views as well as the all-important coffee-making station. The Executive Suite also includes a full kitchen, dining area and spa bath for a little extra TLC.
Restaurants and bars
For “grab and go” snacks, the casual Two Donkeys Café does the trick, with barista coffee and the usual suspects for breakfast (ham and cheese toasties, sandwiches, wraps, bagels).
The Pantry Restaurant hosts the hotel’s breakfast buffet, along with an a la carte menu of elevated surf ‘n’ turf, with standouts such as lemon-pepper-spiced kangaroo loin on potato gratin and snow pea tendril-topped barramundi. The Lobby Bar serves the same but on bar stools and lounges – and alongside an extensive drinks list.
Travel for work
There are 11 meeting rooms dedicated to business travellers, with the smallest helpfully accommodating just two, which suits more informal get-togethers. (Don’t worry, up to 280 guests can be accommodated in meeting rooms all up.) Wi-fi is free for all attendees and food and beverages packages can be easily arranged.
Gym and pool
At the time of writing, the rooftop pool was closed for renovations. The fitness centre, complete with a sauna for post-workout muscle soothing, is spread across level two and is accessible 24-hours a day.

Getting in late? No matter — room service is available 24 hours.
