    Good location and clean apartment ”

    Good location very near to Crowns Casino about 2 minutes walking distance. Free tram zone at stop 2 Sea Aquarium just outside the building. Allow early check-in at 12pm during our stay but check out is early by 10am. However you can leave your luggage and pick up later. Good Cafe at the corner for breakfast and good Korean BBQ restaurant nearby open only in the evening 5pm to 3am

    Very handy location”

    There's a lot of construction happening in the area, so quite a few empty shops around - but don't be put off by that. The location is very handy to the free tram services with many, many excellent cafe & restaurant options within easy walk. It's also a short walk across the bridge to a great bike/walking track along the Yarra river. The apartment was generously sized and the bed super comfortable. Will be back on my next trip to Melbourne.

    WARNING WARNING WARNING ”

    My girlfriend and i stayed at the riverside apartments recently. The staff was good, we had an easy check in, we had a great in melbourne. But a couple of day's later i got charged an extra $250 dollar's on my credit card so i rang up for some answers. The reason was. They told me that they had to dry clean the apartment as i smoked in the room, i told them i didn't even have one smoke in there. I asked them if there was any ash, cigarettes, or even used cigarette butts in the room. They told me NO but there was an empty packet of cigarettes with no smokes in the bin. Other then that they had no other proof or evidents that i actually smoked in the apartment. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone to be honest, only if you want to be surprised a couple of day's later with a $250 extra charge for no reason.

    Stayed one night and would definitely book again. Apartment was very clean and spacious with a balcony. Staff were extremely helpful. The bathroom is a bit dated and could do with a reno but still clean. Very close to tram stop, Crown Casino and Melbourne Aquarium. There was noise from building works early in the morning but we would still book here again.

    The apartment is centrally located in Melbourne CBD. Sea Life, Crown Casino and Immigration museum is within walking distance. Tram stations nearby. Regarding food, you have restaurants and 7 eleven. If you're craving for Indian food, there are 2 restaurant with easy accessibility. Regarding the property itself, it is clean and quite comfortable. Everything is provided from dishes to pans so you can cook yourself a decent meal on your travel off-days.

    Great location, spacious apartment”

    Although the apartment was well located (not too far from public transportation and walking distance from most tourist places), we were very disappointed with the fact that although tap water is supposed to be potable, it was dirty! When we asked the staff why it was dirty, they just said, don't have it warm, have it cold then it will be clean. Not the kind of answer you'd expect. The least they could have done was provide alternative (bottled drinking water) to ensure we had clean drinking water. The good thing was that the apartment was quite spacious (although the bathroom was really small), we had a bedroom and a living room, we had booked for 3 adults. Also, the reception is not in the same building as the apartments, so you've to walk a little distance if you need to speak with the staff. The internet was very intermittent, kept on disconnecting frequently.

    Construction and clubs”

    There is a lot of construction work going on all around the building we stayed in. Understandable that staying in the city can be rather noisy but the construction works were ongoing through the night and on a Wednesday night there was a blaring club until 3am if not later. Very central and easy access though.

    i stay at best western riverside apartmen for 3 nights on 01 january 2018. we have to check in on highlander ln road then the annex type apartment is located behind the check in desk. the rooms are a bit small, but the living room and kitchen are quite spacious, and the cooking supplies are also quite spacious. but unfortunately the air con just in the living room, so in the summer the bedroom is quite hot. the location is quite far to the road to the city center, but you can use the free tram located in front of the road to get to the city center. I am quite satisfied, and will probably return to stay here next time. the apartments are reasonably priced with comfortable rooms.

    Helpful staff, good location and value for money. However, the hot water "disappeared" when I was planning to take a shower, so I had to change the room due to some technical issues and I was in a hurry. The rooms are large and clean, quite old on the other hand. Would be good to have a basic renovation.

    Can't complain! Fast check in and the view facing the river is nothing short of spectacular. Right across the river at Crown you would pay 4 times as much for the same view. The room itself is very large, the aircon worked well and it has everything you need (iron, microwave etc..). Exceptional value at around $150 a night. We were going to the casino which was just 5mins walk. Will definitely stay there again.

    Stay was pleasant. Unfortunately I didn't read the instructions before driving there. Spent $16 on 15 min parking at the building. If driving you need to park at Highlander Lane and get the pass from the reception first.

    I got this apartments due to agoda secret deal so the price is very attractive. Location is great as it's close to train (Southern Cross/Spencer street station is walking distance, Flinders street station is 2 tram stop away) and tram station. Very close to Melbourne Aquarium. So you can't really complain much about the location. The room is spacious and for sure it can hold one more person.

    good location but room can be better”

    centrally located, spacious, good view

    We stayed here for 3 nights. Weather changed throughout our stay, so we needed the heating when cold and air conditioning when hot. However the heating/air conditioning system was not working well. We didn't really highlight the issue to the hotel as it happened late at night when we needed it the most. So when weather hot, we just opened the window. When cold, we adjusted the highest temperature. Dryer appliance needed an upgrade. It took 2hours just to dry the clothing. Washer filter wasn't cleaned. Sofa and one of the dining chairs needs replacement, not springy anymore. Overall cleanliness was acceptable. However, it can be improved better. Good things are superb location, just directly opposite sea aquarium and crown and easy access to most places. We were given the highest floor 17th, so we got to enjoy the view. The 1 bedroom unit is very spacious. We hope appliance and furnishing can be replaced as suggested and things will be perfect.
