We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 young children. We stayed a Saturday night which was so noisy that we were still awake at 2am. Not the fault of the apartment as the noise was coming from a nearby club but being on the 17th floor I didn't think it would be that loud. To make matters worse... More

The hotel is located right next to Seaside on Northland (sort of opposite Crown complex) and right in front of the Rialto tower. We had a big apartment with a big lounge, fully fitted kitchen, A/C, heater, big bathroom with laundry, dining table and little side desk for business. As the hotel is located in an office tower - offices... More

if you're on a budget and/or need to share a decent sized room with a colleague (twin room) then this is a good pick. Far from 5-star the property is well maintained and everything is clean and well presented. We stayed in one of the annex rooms which was a little noisy in the morning (backs onto the back of...

We stayed at the Riverside Apartments for two nights, on the 15th floor. The apartment was spacious and well appointed, with all facilities for a much longer stay. The bedding and towels, etc., were spotlessly clean, the room was very quiet and we slept well in the comfortable bed. Overall the experience for the price was really good. In addition,... More

This place far exceeded my expectations! When you are told a queen suite room you expect a small room with a bathroom and small kitchen. Not here. Your lounge looks out over the city with lovely new couches and flat screen TV. Separate bedroom with most comfortable clean bed I have ever slept in! Separate huge self contained kitchen with...

Can't beat the downtown location. Located in the "free zone" trolley/tram with a stop right across the street, ability to hop on and off free during operational hours. Nice to have access to washer/dryer in bathroom; however did have some operational issues, ie spin cycle water drains to center of bathroom floor. Fully furnished kitchen with dishwasher and full size... More
