A great place to stay for acceess to Southbank, GOMA, QPAC and the Convention and Exhibition Centre. Very clean and comfortable rooms with all mod cons and very friendly staff, particularly Duty manager Luiz who goes out of his way to ensure you have a memorable stay. A nice restaurant and quiet little bar to enjoy your pre-dinner drinks or... More

Comfortable Hotel with friendly staff at a very good price and conveniently located in the hub of the cultural precinct of South bank in Brisbane. Directly across the road from GOMA and a great cafe at the State Library. We had a one bedroom apartment with plenty of room and the bed was comfortable enough for a weeks stay. The... More

The Riverside is a good, solid, basic hotel that provides great value. It isn't a flashy, high class chain hotel like the Crown, Rydges, Hilton, et cetera but it has all the things you need - a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, aircon, TV, café/bar, pool and free parking. The location is a bonus, for just over $100 a night to... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for the Theatre and Southbank and within walking distance to Roma St station and the city. A bonus is the free parking and we always take advantage of the buffet breakfast. We recommend it to anyone who wants to "spend a night not a fortune"! The rooms are comfortable and clean and the...

We stayed here for two nights to attend a show at QPAC and catch up with friends. QPAC and southbank are within walking distance so the location was our main reason for booking. The hotel itself is a clean and comfortable basic hotel and I would stay again. Staff were friendly upon check in and on-site breakfast was basic but... More

Great value for money hotel. We travelled to see a show and this hotel is situated in fantastic location for all things Southbank or the City. We had a room on the first floor with a queen and single bed. Rooms are compact but clean and neat. Little traffic noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to have... More

We have stayed at this hotel for the third time now and am always impressed with this excellent value for money hotel. My daugther and I travelled with friends for a weekend in Brisbane to see a show and go to the ballet. The hotel is always good value for money for an inner city hotel. Parking is secure and... More

I was disappointed with this hotel. The web site made it sound more appealing than it was. The location is good, but the room was small and a bit old/ unclean with grime in the tiles and dust. The view was useless. Out the window we got a view of another building and some industrial bins (which were loudly emptied... More

Late September, my family went to Brisbane for the wedding of old friend's daughter. Being there several times, rather than staying at friend's 10,000 square meters life style house,we decided to stay in the city to see what Brisbane is really like. "When in Rome , do as the Romans do". On friend's recommendation, we booked "Riversides Hotel" in South... More

I have stayed three times in this hotel, and each time it gets better. It is very conveniently located two blocks from a central bus stop (hub) and South Brisbane railway station (arriving from the airport roll your luggage to the hotel), and a short walk (15 min) to Brisbane's CBD, shopping mall, etc. The staff is very friendly and...
