This hotel is good value and is in a great location. It is very basic and the decor is a bit tired. Also may be very noisy if you are on the side facing the road. The staff were friendly and efficient. I would stay there again.

Broken shower and phone; rude staff members; dirty room; limited food availability despite 2 menus in the room; We checked in to relax after having a new baby and all I wanted to do was cry and go home. The staff were horrible - abusing us for trying to call them (the phone was broken) and then for having broken... More

As always, a happy and enjoyable stay at the Riverside Hotel. We always stay here when we visit Brisbane and are never disappointed. The rooms, the service, the car parking, the position with its close proximity to South Bank, museums etc.... it all makes us keen for the next time! Well done Riverside.

The Riverside has one of the best locations in Brisbane if you're intending to spend time at Southbank or any of the cultural precinct/West end area. My family and I all stayed in separate rooms, and appreciated having car parks for both vehicles (it meant we could easily take taxis wherever we needed to go which wasn't within walking distance.)...

I have stayed at this hotel several times because the accommodation and meals are at reasonable prices compared to CBD prices and it is a 5 to 10 minute walk over the Kurilpa Bridge to the CBD. We took advantage of the good value meal "specials". I appreciated the fact that my wife was able to stay in the room... More

We stayed here for two nights recently. The location was perfect for us as we were there to attend the ballet at QPAC. Just a short walk to the arts precinct and also over Victoria Bridge to the city. Very convenient. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a view over the city. You get the noise from... More

I stayed in Brisbane overnight for a Jordan Belfort seminar. The hotel was a little out of the way but they where half the price of other hotels in the area and the facilities looked ok. The staff where friendly and courteous. The TV was not working in the room though the staff managed to fix it outside of standard... More

only having one night in Brisbane we thought this place would be close enough to the action without the noise. unfortunately its a little too far form the Southbank activities, or for most things for that matter. the staff were friendly and very helpful, but our room was located across the way in what appeared to be the 'budget building'....
