Gambaro Hotel, Brisbane's newest luxury hotel


Sophisticated and luxurious are not words usually synonymous with Brisbane’s inner-city Caxton Street. But that’s all about to change with the opening of Brisbane’s newest luxury boutique hotel, Gambaro Hotel. The strip has recently being gentrified with the addition of neighbouring hip watering hole Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall and cool gastro pub Statler & Waldorf making Caxton Street the entertainment hot spot once more.

Gambaro’s blends old and new to perfection. The Gambaro family are renowned for their hospitality, running one of Brisbane’s oldest restaurants, celebrating over 60 years of service to local seafood lovers. Gambaro Group now extend this success to the 68-room hotel with food and wine as its anchor, to create a unique gourmet getaway. With 24 hour in-suite dining, function facilities, award winning Gambaro’s Seafood Restaurant & Black Hide Steakhouse, there’s really no reason to leave.

Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, whose work includes the likes of Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Waldorf Astoria Shanghai the 5 star hotel caters to the corporate crowd with muted tones of dark wood, grey and purple and stone and marble bathrooms to appeal to the discerning traveller.  Exclusively stocking Appelles Apothecary’s new Black range of amenities and towels embossed with the Gambaro logo, no expense has been spared on these luxurious suites.


The hotel is perfectly positioned close to Suncorp Stadium for the sports fan and leisure traveller. Kicking off the opening weekend with capacity crowds attending the Brisbane Roar Grand Final, a sea of orange clad supporters paraded down Caxton Street, creating quite the sight for guests enjoying the festivities from Gambaro Hotel balconies above. The hotel features double-glazing, to block out any excitable crowds, making it whisper quiet inside.

On our tour of the new hotel, we were pleasantly surprised by the abundance of natural light and 49 rooms feature balconies, making it an impressive architectural feat in this boutique 4 level property.  One of my favourite features was the atrium with its fish light feature, reminiscent of an aquarium and nod to the Gambaro seafood background.

A sophisticated stay at Gambaro Hotel means you can either embrace the Caxton Street festive vibe or escape to luxury in your urban retreat.
