While in Brisbane, I live at Oaks Lexicon Apartments. I rode a taxi from airport going here and the fare was around $50. Let me give you a tour to my apartment. For security reasons, the front doors to the lobby entrance are locked between 10pm and 6am daily. Building access, the black circular shaped attached to the keys, are required to enter during those hours.

Luckily, I arrived 11 in the morning. I paid first for the rent and the receptionist handed me the keys to my apartment. Payments can be made by cash, credit card or EFTPOS. All credit card payments will incur a service fee of 1.5%. If guests arrived between 10pm and 6am, special check in arrangement is made.

The key with an orange mark (picture above) is the key to my apartment while the other one is the key for the gym. Not all guests have the key for the gym. The receptionist asked me if I will use the gym facilities and I said yes that why he gave me a key.Two sets of keys for the apartment are available but I chose to keep only one so that in case I got lock out, I can ask for the duplicate from them. Lost keys will have a fee of $300 per set. The same black circular shaped attached to the keys will be used to access your floor at the lift.
