We booked here for one night due to the location & low price (5 min walk to Crown). We weren't expecting fancy but we were expecting clean and were disappointed. We got and old ripped couch, lumpy bed & dirty shower. All hotels provide basics such as soap, shampoo & conditioner and this one was is no exception, with dispensers located on the shower wall which would have been great had they WORKED! No amount of pumping yielded soap and we resorted to taking the lid off & pouring out, that worked ... Read more

My sister and I stayed here the 7th and 9th May 2016. The reception staff were incredibly helpful with allowing us to store our bags there prior to check-in whilst we went and explored the city. The location of the hotel was very convenient being directly across from the tram stop which links to Flinders Street Station very easily. The room was huge and very well maintained and clean on both check-ins. Will say- the balcony window in our room was probably due for a wipe down. Aside from that, we... Read more

Split beds are never comfy, noisy garbage contractor 2 nights in a row decided to compact his load outside my window, decor a bit tired, soap and shampoo dispensers did not work (bought my own later). Didn't enjoy my 4 night stay, but was convenient to Conference Centre.

After reading some not so flattering comments was a little reluctant to stay in this property. Once we opened the day I couldn't understand what anybody would be complaining about. Spacious 2 bedroom apartment with all modern amenities. Was on the 16th Floor had river views and double glazing in both bedrooms. Close to all attractions and very close to the free trams. Check in and out easy. Would recommend.

Don't use this location if you intend to cook! I booked this apartment with the intention of cooking...the rangehood was faulty and on reporting to the reception was told please don't use it and please don't cook! I was not offered a room change or a discount. So the kitchen was useless the food bought a waste of money and we had to eat out anyway. The beds were comfy. That was the only plus this place had going for it. I will not be back :( Shame that customer service just was not high on ... Read more

I think i would spend my annual leave to be here again. ok, Let's come back to the point. this apartment hotel is fine. no much noises, no bad smells, hot water, polite services,etc. it's convenient to catch the city trains. and what's more, the price is not too's ok for me.

We booked here for a short weekend break for a friends birthday party. The location was perfect not far from Southern cross station and very easy to catch a cab nearby. The weather was chilly as you expect, but the view from the 16th floor of melbourne was great. Would definitely book here again

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a night while in Melbourne for an event at the Exhibition Centre. Excellent location with the Casino and Exhibition Centre within easy walking distance. Very spacious room, very happy with the amenities. The parking is a little tight but that is to be expected for city parking, however very reasonable rates.

Lovely hotel with friendly check-in staff and we were upgraded to a suite on the 16th floor (it was my birthday) without asking. Loads of room in the living areas & kitchen, although the bedroom was still a bit tight to move around the bed. The door in the second bedroom could not close because it hit the bed. It wasn't an issue for us as we didn't use that room. Internet worked well. There was a fair bit of noise from the trains and trams first thing in the morning that the double galzing in ... Read more

Arrived at level 16 at the booked 2 bedroom apartment, to see a wall facing us as the view from each bedroom and lounge room.We queried and were advised no other rooms available so could not be re located. We were extremely disappointed with "view" from apartment as best western riverside apartments name, would suggest some view of river ....but not even a view of the street from the 16th floor. Left the curtains closed for our stay. Rooms were however clean and kitchen facilities were function... Read more

We had a 1 bedroom apartment in their 2nd building around the corner. It was roomy and comfortable except for the Daikin Air con which was a bit dodgy (appeared to need a good clean and service) Staff were generally friendly and helpful and the room was serviced every day of our 4 day stay. Good location opposite the Melbourne Aquarium with a tram stop right outside. Reasonable tariff as well. Bed and pillows were pretty comfortable and we found the location fairly quiet. Probably the only o... Read more

I stayed here for hour nights while attending a conference. The location was good but with that came the noise of garbage trucks at all hours of the morning. Not the Best Westerns fault and I didn't complain at the time as it wasn't that huge of a deal to me but something to keep in mind, the annex apartments are on Flinders Lane so keep that in mind. The staff were nice and the rooms were pretty clean however take your own toiletries!! There are shampoo, conditioner and shower gel dispensers ... Read more

Based at the slightly rougher end of the CBD, this hotel is good value for the money, its size and location. We had a one bedroom apartment with views from the 16th floor and stayed for six days. The room was warm, comfortable and high enough to get away from the street noise below. From the hotel we could easily walk to the shopping areas of the CBD and across the river to the beautiful south bank. It was also easy to catch nearby trams to all our desired city destinations, including Victoria M... Read more

I thought we were staying in a 1 bedroom apartment at 474 Flinders St but that definitely was not the case. I booked through and it was not clear that we were staying in a 1 bedroom annex apartment which is on Flinders Lane! It was super noisey, the lift and foyer area is dodgey and when we went out for breakfast the next morning someone had spewed all over the footpath near the door. It is around the corner from a mens club and other club behind it down Highlander Lane and the no... Read more

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for one night and were happily surprised to have a fantastic rooftop outdoor area with amazing views of the Yarra River, Crown Casino, and the city. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything you could want. The kitchen was well appointed. The beds were comfortable although I wasn't a fan of the pillows. The unit was very spacious. Parking is available onsite. The building is right across the road from the aquarium and a few short minutes walk to the C... Read more

These apartments, with full kitchens and laundry facilities, are not new but they are roomy! We booked 2 1-bedroom apartments and 1 2-bedroom apartment for the whole family, and were delighted to find that we could block the 2br and one of the 1br apartments off by a door in the hall, allowing us to keep the apartment doors open - great for putting tired children to bed and allowing us to congregate in the next room. comfortable beds, great view and so close to the Aquarium, Crown and a tram ...

Nothing good to say about our dingy dark outdated dirty unsafe room. Will never ever be back. Not much use management saying we were unaware of any issues until we were checking out. These issues should not have existed in the first place.

We booked a room directly with the hotel over the phone and when we arrived apparently we didn't have a booking due to our card declining for some reason. We weren't informed of this but luckily they still had the room type we wanted available. It was spacious and close to Crown. The room was a bit run down, bathroom fan very loud and stains on the carpet but overall good for a quick stay and good views. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a view of the bay, river and city.

We stayed here purely for location. Room was $180 which maybe was a little over priced. Cheap toiletries which you couldn't use as dispensers did not work. Shower had mould on floor and walls. Bed was a king (2 ziplocked singles) but both beds were at different heights. No compendium or avenue to leave feedback. Toilet cistern ran on and off throughout the night. Room was very noisy from street. Property obviously crying out for a refurb.

I went there for a conference and the position is perfect. The apartment is spacious and everything was good except the carpet definitely was a bit tired. Huge storage room, the linen and towels were top class and the reception was very welcoming and helpful- and you can open the windows! Yay!

Room was fantastic. But since it is located around the corner from King St, it is very noisy right through the night till early morning! Everything in the room was clean and very tidy. Would be a great hotel if it was situated somewhere else!

We had two apartments for two nights whilst driving from Mildura to Moe and wanted to have a look around the city. The accommodation was much better than expected at a reasonable price. Good location for the tram and access to the city. Yes, it was slightly noisy but your on a main road in the city. Caused us no problems. Staff very helpful and the apartment clean with all you would need for the stay. Would we return if we came his way again? - Yes.

I found an online special for these apartments, which made the price even more reasonable for one night's accommodation. I was welcomed in a lovely manner at reception and had to walk around the corner to find the other building containing my apartment. The only downside was catching the small lift up that smelt of curry. The apartments appear to be an old office block that has been converted and my 1 bedroom apartment was extremely roomy, with massive windows and a bathroom that worked but cou... Read more

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment , very large and accommodated 7 sleeping and 2 bathroom, it was clean and spacious and suited our night stay in the city. Kitchen did not have enough plates and cutlery for number it should sleep, Also to note there is a flight of stairs once you enter apartment to get to kitchen and bedrooms. Location is very good opposite aquarium and tram stop outside front of building.

I'm no snob but this is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. After 20 hrs on the run, all I wanted was a bed but no one at reception so couldn't get in. Then sent down to road to other property that is absolutely filthy, there is garbage in the "foyer" if you can call it that. The place stinks. It's extremely noisy, has no facilities, it seriously should be knocked down so they can start again. Now there are people screaming at each other in the corridor. I'm wondering if it gets rented ...

The welcome on arrival was very friendly. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed with everything that we needed for a one night stay. We stayed in a single bedroom apartment on the 17th floor. The location is fantastic and easy to access. Very easy and short walk to South Bank, Casino and Exhibition Center or walk or tram ride into the center of the city. Would stay here again.
