“Very comfortable unpretentious vibe in the place!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

My stay at the Amora Hotel Riverwalk, was extremely enjoyable! Although from the outside driving past if you were to blink then you may very well miss it! However once you enter the hotel you can sense a very comfortable unpretentious vibe in the place! All staff greet you with a big genuine smile on their faces and are all very happy to assist with anything. The rooms are impeccably clean and rather up to date in their furnishings. The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable, with good friendly service. Some good advice would be park in the underground parking for $18.00 per night it is totally worth it to know the car is safe! Also very cheap for being so close to the city! Also if you are planning to stay here go to reception where you can purchase tram tickets very handy, especially if you are from interstate of overseas and not so tram savvy.

I look forward to staying here again!

We have stayed at the Amora Richmond several time, each has been fantastic. The last time we stayed we had two young men in their 20's with us we booked the Penthouse they enjoyed themselves more than words can say. The service from all areas was Fantastic that's why we will keep coming back Thank you to all the staff who have made our stays special.

I've stayed here a few times over about the last 5 years. I like the spa rooms but will set you back 250-300.

Room service is well priced and i've always liked the restaurant food. Situated right beside the yarra you can borrow bikes or jog on tracks beside it. Well situated to city and sporting venues it is on the classy bridge road with a tram line right out front.

Victoria rd shopping centre and plethora of vietnamese ./ dining venues are also quite close at hand.

Richmond hotel.pub across the road is also very popular,

I found the place to be immacukately cleanly and the staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Go on - you KNOW you want that spa!

Handy location without being right in the city centre. Tram stop right outside the door and very close to the city centre and consequently train/bus station to airport, etc.
We were on the first floor which proved to be quite noisy as there were several functions on during the course of our 4 night stay. I think a lot of this was to do with the layout of the Hotel and rooms towards the river end of the Hotel might not be quite so noisy. That being said we were prewarned and the noise did cease at 12pm.
As the title says - dinner for room service was very, very nice. some of the best we have had...
Breakfast staff in the dining room were too friendly for my liking.

The staff were lovely, accommodating in every way.

My daughter had here wedding there on the weekend and was just perfect thanks to the Amora staff (all of them).
Food was yummy and prefectly cooked.

I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding and also accommodation was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. I want to do it all again :)

All the guests commented on the wonderful service. I cannot thank you enough for making my Daughter and her new husband's day/night a happy one.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the Amora is actually closed down. Both upon check in and check out the reception area is unmanned and no sign of anyone anywhere. After waiting a few minutes each time, someone eventually came to attend to us. Obviously not happy that we had "disturbed" them, they hurriedly completed the transaction with not so much as a "welcome" or "we hope you enjoyed your stay".
Aside from the atrocious customer service, the hotel is well located, clean and comfortable
