Instead of trying to catch public transport before the sun comes up, or paying too much for a taxi, you can secure accommodation near Brisbane Airport in one of the many hotels close to the airport zone. When you think of airport hotels, convenience and comfort might not be what first comes to mind. Airport hotels can have a bit of a reputation for being overpriced and short on luxuries, however, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when it comes to Brisbane Airport hotels. There are several four and five star hotels located close to the airport, such as the Novotel Brisbane and the Pullman Brisbane Airport, plus a couple of clean, no-frills budget options such as the ibis Brisbane Airport.
To find out more about the individual hotels, we've include short summaries below, covering room types, features, and amenities. If available, there are also handy resources, from booking information to links to the official website. Please note that you cannot book at any of these properties via Flyparks at present.
A three-star hotel close to Brisbane Domestic and Brisbane International Airport, the ibis Brisbane Airport is a great option for budget travellers. Within easy walking distance of the Domestic Terminal, and a quick drive to the International Terminal, the ibis offers its guests the benefits of a 24-hour reception, shuttle service (paid), Wi-Fi/internet access, air conditioning, and on-site parking (paid). Each of the hotel’s guest rooms features a private bathroom, comfortable bedding, LCD TV, ironing board, mini fridge, and natural lighting. Travellers can book either a Standard Room with 1 queen sized bed, or a Standard Twin Room with 1 double and 1 single bed, and take advantage of the hotel’s bistro style restaurant and bar.
