Avoid the Annexe and book yourself a room with a view. Apartments are huge, and high above the noise of the city. Buffet breakfast round the corner for less than $12 is a great deal too. Will stay again for sure.

Riverside Apartments at the Aquarium end of Flinders St Melbourne are well appointed with small kitchen, separate lounge and bedroom. The security system was better than most with a video camera installed at the front entrance that could be accessed from the bedroom TV. An intercom was also provided to speak to visitors at the front door. The surrounding area... More

I stayed here out of necessity when my car broke down. I was attending a course and had to catch a taxi at 6:45am. There was no clock anywhere. Not even a clock radio. My mobile phone was flat and I didn't have my watch. It specified that their reception had a wake up service. I suppose they could have... More

Reception is open 24/7 and as we are a busy hotel guests regularly need to either check in or ask asistance during the night. I'm sorry you felt let down and I will enquire if there was a technical fault with your phone line. I hope you will return... More

When I saw I was booked into a Best Western, I groaned. Typically these properties are 3 star motel style rooms, doesn't do much to get the excitement flowing. However, I was travelling for work so didn't really matter. I checked in and when I opened the door to my room I nearly died of shock! It was so beautiful!!... More

We stayed here for 5 nights when attending an international convention of Jehovah's witnesses. The convention meant that Melbourne had 70,000 visitors and therefore prices for apartments were astronomical in some instances. How fortunate we were then, to find Best Western Riverside! We had a two bedroom apartment on the 15th floor facing Crown casino. In our apartment was my... More
