This is a modern family friendly apartment Hotel. Staff are very helpful. Apartment was very spacious & clean. Amazing views of the city and river from room 1629. Stairs on entry, not great for prams or wheelchairs although there is a ramp in from the office carpark next door. A good idea to prearrange woolworths or coles homeshop to deliver for your arrivsl as the 7/11 & mini city grocery store nearby are expensive. Breakfast can be delivered Mon to Fri but weekends you will need to cook your own or walk up the road to find a cafe.

Dont'arrive earlier than check-in time! If you are lucky 12.00 maybe as late as 14.00. There is limited space to store bags if you arrive early. Book early for a car parking space and DON'T park on the streets nearby. The street meter parking has many limitations and the fine is AUD 61 ( yes they caught me!).You do not need a car in Melbourne. Immediately buy a weekly stored value ( MyKi card), which will cover all trains/trams and buses. The location is ideal for train stations and a short walk from the city centre and all the shops and entertainment. A stroll across the river to the casino, or a cruise down it ( even a helipad!). Its nice to have your own place to eat a take-away meal or do a little cooking for a change. Talk to the front desk to book the airport car on day of leaving. Its a fixed rate and pleasant driver and good service.

I have stayed at these self-contained apartments a number times during short stays in Melbourne.

I find the location very convenient, the staff helpful and the rooms perfectly adequate.

Although it is nothing to write home about, it is a solid, cheaper option for short stays whilst in Melbourne.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The check-in was flawless and the cheerful gorgeous young girl at reception worked hard to get us an early check-in after a long overnight flight. The apartment itself was modern and clean and fully-equipped. The bed and the linens were comfier and of a better quality than what we have at home. One small gripe might be the state of the lift lobby (separate from the hotel lobby) as it was dirty and dated but overall Riverside Apartments exceeded our expectations. Great location and the Ghurka's Nepalese Restaurant downstairs was divine!!!!

My partner and I stayed here in December 2010. It was my first choice to return to with my girlfriends for a shopping holiday and visit the Pharoah exhibition. Firstly I was pleased to be able to secure the same apartment as before. Overlooking the gas fires outside the Casino on the other side of the river. An hourly spectacular show at night. Trams and trains conveniently at the end of the Lane. The apartment was as before: crisply clean with very comfortable lounge and dining furniture. Staff at front desk extremely helpful with all our touristy enquiries, and very accommodating when one of our party fell ill on the day of our return travel. Looking forward to next year's trip !!!
