This has a great location, just walk across the bridge to Southbank, a course of blocks from Flinders Square. Make sure you ask for a river view room. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The only downfall was the quality of the beds - springs don't make for a good nights sleep.

Best Western Riverside Apartments are a great place to stay as the units are spacious with a small kitchen and daily cleaning service. The location is near to Southern Cross Station within walking distance. The staff at reception are helpful and friendly always ready to oblige and answer any questions.

We stayed on 15th floor one bedroom apartment with views to Yarra river and crown, fantastic! Service was very friendly and the apartment very spacious. 2 adults, toddler and 4 month old. Right across the road from the aquarium. Only downside was it wasn't pram friendly, a few stairs at the entrance to get in. We wouldn't hesitate to stay... More

the view from this apartment at night time is worth a million dollars. A bonus saw a hot air balloon one morning from our bedroom window pass along the coast through the space between the buildings. So easy to get a tram the stop at your door step which from there you can go anywhere.

Secure serviced apartment in the heart of the city close to everything and a 10 min walk from/to southern cross station for the airport bus. Hard to find though. Address is located on 474 flinders st but if you go to 474 flinders st, you will come to a huge parking lot! There is a laneway called highlander near 474... More

Thank you for the information packed review of Best Western Riverside Apartments. Just one little note: The couch's in the apartments are not a pull out couch. We can provide a roll-away bed for extra guests at a reasonable rate. Thanks again for taking the time to inform others. More

The apartment we stayed in was clean and very roomy. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The location was close to eating places and other facilities. We needed a cot for a baby and this was supplied at no charge including a high chair.
