Stayed there because of location and at first price, they charged me $30 extra for my child although I had originally indicated it was 3 of us, somehow the booking was for 2, total of $169 for the smallest room and absolutely discussing bathroom as you can see on the pictures. To me bathroom is pivotal to any stay, must...

I stay at the Riverside every time I visit Brisbane and have invariably been happy with the experience. Oh- and I did not mention the free parking which is another big bonus in central Brisbane. The price is also very reasonable.

We booked for two nights as it was close to functions we were committed to. The only good thing was its location. The room was adequate but the bed was a very old fashioned double bed size and had no support. We both had shocking nights. Also very, very noisy with other people laughing and chattering in the hallway. The...

When we wished some Show " Swan Lake", this was in walking distance to QPAC. Also the secure car park was a great feature. So close to south bank and the Museum makes venue a great place to locate and take a short beak.

We would highly recommend Riverside Hotel if you are looking for comfortable, affordable accommodation with easy walking distance access to Brisbane City & South Bank. The added bonus of this hotel is that with free parking it makes it a great location for exploring the wider area of Brisbane & Gold Coast if you hire a car. Parking at other...

We stayed here to attend a show at QPAC. We have stayed at several places prior as we live at the Gold Coast and visit QPAC quite often so need overnight accommodation.This was by far the best. The price is right and the staff are wonderful.Very friendly and helpful. It is just a short walk to QPAC, or the CBD,...

Clean and roomy. We were in town to catch a show at the Lyric Theater which was only 7 minutes easy walk away. Ideal for us without breaking the budget. Room a bit musty smelling but cleared quickly when AC turned on.

A tray was left outside the room two doors up from us and it was still there 24 hours later. The food was all dried out and the gravy boat had mold growing in it. Not a good sight. It was close to amenities.

I got the room at late notice at a great price for central Brisbane. The hotel is fine and in a good spot for Museums and even to walk to the city. Staff are great. The down side is the position right next to a major traffic bridge and the hotel is dated. My room was somewhat shabby - the...

We decided to go up from the Gold Coast to Brisbane the night before so we could do the Great Brisbane Bike Ride on a Sunday. The ride starts, conveniently, a couple of hundred metres away from this hotel. The "standard" room was $125.00 for the night. It was not luxury but it was clean and it was comfortable and...
