This was a great place to stay in central Melbourne. Convenient to all facilities and walking distance to central railways Quiet street. Suite was large and well equipped. I cannot think of anything else to add but the review keeps demanding "200 characters" so this should be enough !!!

We arrived quite early and was lucky to be given a room at 10 am. They have two buildings but we were given a room in the annex building which is 100% self service. You will feel a tad unsafe as there is no security and there are a lot of adult clubs around. It is an apartment style and... More

We booked 2 nights for a one-bedroom apartment -Annex in this hotel for about $150 per night. The hotel check-in lobby and the apartment not at the same building, about 60 yards walking distance. So that was a little trouble as we have big luggage and it was raining that time. Well, as you know Melbourne weather is ever changing... More

Firstly our apologies you were not fully satisfied with your stay at our annex, The Highlander. Agoda and other booking sites clearly state The Highlander is a separate building so I'm sorry you did not see this at the time of booking. Free internet is available to all guests also. I have asked housekeeping to check the beds in case... More

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
