As others have noted, this hotel is in a great spot, within an easy walk of many cafes and pubs, Rundle Mall, the city centre, zoo etc. Location can't be faulted. And the price we paid for a 2br unit which was clean and new-looking was also very good. Not spacious, but plenty of room and beds for our 5 people. Well appointed kitchen and full sized fridge, dishwasher and microwave. No washing machine.
However, the high price for internet was disappointing. By 2014, free WiFi should be a given. And the "windows" were unacceptable--one opened onto the corridor, another had its "window" into the lounge (high enough for privacy but still letting light in on kids trying to sleep) and the "balcony" opened onto a blank wall. No bathtub, just a shower. Parking was available, but limited and $15/night, which was reasonable. Kitchen extractor fan sucks air into the cupboard and back into the room. (?!?)
Staff were very helpful and always available, but it was disappointing again when we extended our stay (paying a large premium on room price) but housekeeping never made up the room and then housekeeping and the front desk played "blame the client" by claiming that we had the privacy card (which spent our entire stay there on the floor, in fact) on our door. Frustrating to arrive home late in the evening and find wet towels on the floor, beds unmade etc, although fresh towels were quickly brought up.
Would definitely stay again, given the value and location.
