The standard is what it claims to be, four stars. The Apartments are located in a pleasant area in North Adelaide, just across the river from Adelaide Zoo. The nearby Melbourne Street is quite attractive with its small shops and restaurants. Even a quite nice, although too modern, bar can be found on Melbourne Street. Pubs of the English type are generally hard to come by in Adelaide (and I thought Aussies like beer!).
On the down side is the hotel’s expensive broadband connection. The basic fee of AUD 27.50 per day is valid only up to 50 MB, after which an extra 10 cents per MB is added. I used Skype to stay in touch with my family and the image transfer quickly absorbed the 50 MB. It’s expensive, you know! In addition, my computer complained that the Internet connection is bad (noticeable in the jerky image). Poor service at high prices—not good.
