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

This is just a cheap hotel, but in a good location with walking distance to Southbank and close to the Brisbane city also. There is not much in the way of facilities and only average swimming pool and rooms also only average. I asked if it was possible for a view and I got a room with the view of... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with 3 other ladies for a work conference. Staff were courteous and friendly, and willing to help with anything we needed. The bathroom needs a hit of exit mould around the shower/bath area, but other than that the amenities are good. Good walking distance to all the spots. Room was a little on the... More

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.)...
