Just completed a 3 day stay at this awful hotel. Room very dated. Air conditioner rattled and kept me awake each night with no fix despite requests to do so. Had to request room be made up on last day and had to instruct the housekeeping person. He made beds - will that be all - no, please change pillow... More

We have stayed in a hotel room before which was great, however our 1 brm unit this time was above the restaurant which had a party on - was extremely noisy (I mean you felt like you were at the party!) some mould on shower tile which is always disappointing. 1 brm unit had cooking utensils etc which was good!

Called the 'Riverside', this hotel actually fronts onto very busy Grey Street and has no views of Brisbane River - even from upper floor. Constant sound of traffic through night. Beware, some rooms are 'owner occupied' and loud building works can be heard from different sides of room during day. We paid extra for a room with a kitchen, however... More

This is a well located close to the Brisbane's premier cultural venues and the Westend. The hotel provides some basic amenity. The ferry, city cycle, train and buses a 5 minute walk away.The city cycles are a great way to get around.

As long as you understand that this is a budget (with the accent on budget) hotel then you probably wont be disappointed. We need a family room near Sth Bank and took a chance - 2 adults, 2 teenage girls. Booked a room for 4 adults. Opened the door (noticing that the locking mechanism was about to fall out and... More

We chose this hotel because we were in Brisbane for a show at qpac and didn't want to drive home. Riverside is a short walk to qpac, the Art gallery, Museum, Southbank entertainment area and even across the bride into Queen Street so position is great!. We had the standard room, the bathroom was very small but clean as was... More

I have been looking for a value hotel to stay in Brisbane and the Riverside ticked all the boxes. It's walking distance to City centre , situated in South bank next to the Arts and Entertainment area with the extra benefit of the multitude of restaurants within 10 mins walk. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which met all... More

Great Hotel, all the amenities that you need. The Location was very good for South Bank and the Exhibition centre. Having the undercover car parking was a bonus. We booked online and when we booked in we were upgraded to an apartment

We were very happy with the service during our stay here. The gentleman who checked us in (Caio) was polite, courteous, and helpful, and kindly upgraded our room unasked. Although the decor was quite dated, the room was large and comfortable and had everything we needed for a short stay. The next day we discovered we had parked in the... More

How often do you find a hotel close to the Brisbane CBD that has FREE underground parking, is affordable and has a great in-house restaurant? I stay at the Riverside Hotel every time I come to Brisbane for work courses as it represents good basic value for money. The accommodation is basic/standard but modern, but the main benefit is its... More
