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

Another year, another stay at the Riverside for the Cox Plate. The change to the fake grass for the penthouse was a brilliant move, completely changed the look & feel of the area, very good idea over bland concrete !!

There was only my husband and I this time but I had a brother and his wife staying in a different hotel and had a night in and stayed at our apartment. Cooked a bit of food.

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

Situated at 474 Flinders St, near the Yarra River, the apartments are a convenient place to stay, an easy walk both to the station, the Convention and Exhibition Centre,the Crown Casino and arts centres; shopping is easy coupled with the free city circle tram at the end of the lane. If travelling alone, I would recommend that you request an... More

We stayed here on a recent quick trip to Melbourne. The apartment was spacious and clean, but a little tired. The hotel is also very close to 2 nightclubs, so it was very noisy on Saturday night and kids everywhere on coming out of the clubs on Sunday morning. The distance is easy access to South Bank, but a good... More

Be very careful when booking your accommodation on line as I did not get anything like I was on the understanding I was getting. Booked 10 months early and even email a week before leaving to confirm 3bed 2 bath and on arrival got 2bed 1 bath
