Perth, Australia
Reviewed 1 week ago

Once again, everything was fine - clean and large room. Only issue I had was the water pressure in the shower - a wimpy and languorous experience - obviously attenuated. I really appreciate a proper shower, so unfortunately, a minor blemish.

Thank you for your review. I will follow up with maintenance regarding the pressure in your room. It shouldnt be a negative experience. We look forward to seeing you again next time you travel to Adelaide.

Fanastic location 10 min walk to Rundell Mall, 2 mins walk to Central Market and Chinatown. Hotel staff were very friendly and 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious. Rooms are well kept. Onsite parking is great.

There are many resources within an easy walk; location is great! While the property is somewhat 'tired' its location and the management friendliness and service made the stay enjoyable, not to mention Adelaide which is a great location with plenty to do and see.

Thank you for your email. Having a heritage listed facade does limit our ability to make the property all shiny and bright on the outside. I do think this adds the charm of the property and it certainly does not stop us being the best located property. We believe we have a great team throughout the whole property but thank...

We travelled as four adults and this property was well appointed for this. Right in the heart of Adelaide CBD, close to restaurants, transport, gyms and shopping. Highly recommend it for accommodation.

This place is not one for "luxury" with no spas or pools or bars (and they've even ditched Foxtel recently, so just free to air tv) but if you're after honest, comfortable, functional, EXTREMELY well located and priced accommodation then this is great. Good aircon for the hot weather we encountered, a full kitchen and a spot to lounge and...

In 2 bedroom apartment the bedrooms are small and airconditioning is only in the lounge room. Also the advertised Foxtel wasnt on the small digital TV in our apartment. Although the apartment was supposedly able to sleep 4 adults there was only a double bed in one bedroom and a single in the very small second bedroom.

Thank you for your review. The bedding configuration is clearly stated on our website and the website you booked on. There is a sofa bed in the living area. After having conducted a survey of previous guests, we felt that Foxtel was not on a list of priorities when people were looking at staying, so we have suspended it for...

Located very close to the central markets and restaurants in China Town and Gouger street and just a short walk to the tram. The living space in the apartments is a large and the kitchen well appointed. The room was nice and quiet.

I am disappointed to hear of your concerns. Our Foxtel had only recently been discontinued (16th February) and this decision was not taken lightly.

Only the one night but was clean, comfortable and in a great location. Had the car park underneath which is a tight fit for a large vehicle but go slow and you get it in, and I would come back here when I require a 2 or 3 room apartment again.
