Rooms and availability
2 Single beds
- City landmarks
The apartment was very comfortable and incredibly quiet. No outside noise was apparent inside at all.
Only one lift that was incredibly slow, often having to wait for several loads of passengers before being able to ride to our apartment.There was no stair access to use instead.
Staff are quite friendly, also the location of the apartment is good
however, the single room is quite small, if possible, i suggest there should be two double bed rooms but not just one.
Everything was there - home from home. Ideal for a self catering break. Close to cafes, restaurants and supermarket and markets - minutes walk to see City highlights such as the Adelaide zoo and Botanic gardens, bus station for organised coach tours (just across the road). 20 mins drive to the Adelaide Hills and close to the trams for the tram ride to Glenelg seaside town. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to friends.
The air conditioning was a little tricky to control - apart from that - no problem with anything.
Rooms were private and very quite. Easy access to Central Markets restaurants and tram. Great to be able to store luggage
Would have preferred a later checkout option say by 1pm - happy to have paid a small fee.
All 3 Desk staff very helpful in storing our luggage and arranging early check-in. Quick response to problem with tumble drier
Only one lift.
The central location is ideal for exploring the city, and is close to markets, shops and transport. The facilities are excellent, and the staff very polite and helpful.
Friendly and helpful staff is best feature. Spacious kitchen/dining/living room was great.
Neither bedroom had a window - big negative.
Close to town; plenty of room in apartment; nice kitchen & bathroom.
Bed broke; couch was broken; tv very poor reception.
We liked the central location - near the market, shopping and restaurants. Our room was large, well equipped and very comfortable even though the view was of the construction site across the steet, this did not deter from our positive experience. The desk staff was excellent and arranged a wine tour for us at short notice and also our airport transfer - and when the shuttle did not show up (no fault of the lady who did the booking) she quickly had someone here to pick us up.
We really do appreciate having free wireless internet available in our rooms as it is our telephone and email connection - a small charge is acceptable, however the 20 minutes free in your lobby per day is not convenient or enough time.
The hotel was close to everything - we felt very secure and comfortable and had plenty of room - the four of us booked the 3 bedroom apartment. The full size kitchen and comfortable living area, plus two bathrooms, made it very comfy.
The washing machine did not work properly- one cycle did not work. the taps in both bathrooms leaked a little, the ensuite bathroom had an unpleasant (sewage) odour at times; there was building/construction work directly across the street, about which we were not warned.
Central aspect of the city and friendly staff
Hotel furnishing didnt all work and we had to be shifted rooms. The free breakfast was of a poor standard and we didnt utilise this offer except for one breakfast
Ideally situated, good standard of apartment and helpful, friendly staff.
The underground carpark is a bit tight for space on the entrance/exit ramp.
Friendly and helpful service at all times.
Booked a 2 room apartment for 4 adults and did not know until I arrived in the room that the second bedroom barely had room for a single bed. Consequently I had to sleep on a foldout bed in the living area for 3 nights. I certainly would not have chosen this arrangement had I been aware.
Central, easy to access. Is a serviced appartment, not a hotel room
The curtains across the door were difficult to deal with. Hard to get in and out of the front door of the appartment. The plumbing was noisy. I could hear evryone's showers.
Loved the location,facilities were great & staff very friendly & helpful.
