Positive Reviews

Very central location

One of the most highly rated aspects of this property is the location. Within walking distance of all of Adelaide's city centre, guests can easily access dozens of shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. This convenience is greatly valued by the majority of guests.

The apartments all contain a full-equipped kitchen, enabling guests to self-cater. This is a popular element of the property with guests suggesting they are able to save a lot of money by self-catering for their meals. Similarly, having laundry facilities in the apartment is also well appreciated.

Clean throughout

Negative Reviews

Windows facing into communal hallway.

Many of the apartments have bedroom windows which face into the communal hallway of the property. Guests find this uncomfortable even with blinds to cover and this factor is regularly listed as a negative aspect of the hotel. Many reviews also mention it makes the soundproofing of the room worse.

Dated fixtures and facilities

Reviews frequently remark on the fixtures and facilities of the rooms, describing them as a dated and tired looking. Guests feel that the rooms could benefit from a refurbishment as many of the facilities are not working at an optimum level.

No free parking

Although there is parking offered by the hotel, it is at an additional cost. Reviews suggest that the parking should be included in the rates of the property, or at least the parking should be subsidised for guests. The car park also receives criticism for being too small.
