“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Stayed here a couple of years ago and I am again. The staff are really friendly and happy to help. Rooms are clean and reasonably sized, beds are very comfortable. Awesome shopping and restaurants close by. Definately recommend.

We stayed here for 5 nights, 13-17 May 2014. We booked a Court Yard King, and was happy that the room was ready when we arrived. We were then surprised when we were upgraded to a Loft apartment! Wow! It had a lovely balcony overlooking parts of Melbourne. Only problem was we had to lug our heavy suitcase up the stairs to the loft. This is our 2nd time at Amora as we were here in 2010. Glad we booked here. The location is great - easy to move around on the tram which is just outside. Tried the room service this time, and its great. The river walk behind the hotel was peaceful and nice. The Reception was helpful, we got our Myki cards from Alvin, who also helped us with some directions - Thank you! The room was cleaned every day. The only complaint we have is that the wifi is limited to only 1 hour per day. Would be great if the Amora managment considers giving free WIFI all day. Overall, we still had a great stay.

We stayed here for a night as we were going to a wedding along Bridge Rd. The room was great, just what we needed for our short stay. We got a great deal on the room and as we checked in we also got a free bottle of sparkling and a couple of other offers for their restaurant. I couldn't fault this place for convenience and service. A short walk up Bridge Rd to shops and restaurants. Will stay again. Oh...the hand lotion smelled amazing!

We booked this hotel because the price was great, including breakfast and free parking. It´s a little far from the major turistic points, but the public transportation was easy around this area. The hotel was very confortable and clean. Great bed,good breakfast, and nice staff. The only problem for me was that in one of the nights there was a big party going on in an outside area of the hotel, and I could not sleep until the party was over. It was loud!

I would say slightly better than average (3 stars). but definitely not very good (4 stars) for this hotel. Good things...location, cleanliness, room size, bed and shower. Not so good things...slightly impersonal staff, car parking price, over-priced for what you get.

I stayed at the Amora Riverwalk for a work trip and I could not have asked for a nicer experience. The hotel is in Richmond next to the Yarra River and is easily accessible from the CBD - there is a tram stop in front of the hotel.

I arrived early but luckily, my room was ready and I could check in. The staff were welcoming and helpful. I was also given a voucher for a free cheese platter and bottle of wine which was a lovely surprise and a generous gesture!

I had a large room with a balcony that faced the central courtyard. The room was spotlessly clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including bath robes :-) The buffet breakfast was great with a nice variety of hot and cold options.

I slept very well at the Amora - the hotel was quiet as there was no party in the courtyard. I ate most of the cheese platter just before I went to bed (although I ended up taking the wine home with me), so maybe it was the cheese that helped me to sleep well... :-)

I would love to stay at the Amora again and I recommend it highly - thanks for a very pleasant stay!

We have stayed in several locations in Melbourne & have found this to be one of the nicest.
The rooms are a lovely spacious size with glimpses of the river.
The room is very quiet unless there is a function in the courtyard in which case it is quite noisy.
The music finishes at 11.30 & we were fine with it. Both the bar snacks we enjoyed on the Friday night & the breakfasts were lovely. A great breakfast selection ! It was a little disappointing that there there is no gym or pool but we knew that when we booked. We found the staff very pleasant & helpful during our stay & having the tram stop right outside the hotel is a real bonus. Would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: We chose a balcony room with a river view
