These apartments were excellent, and the area is good for food and bars; it's less than 10 minutes walk to the trains at Central Station, and local bus services take you quickly into the city centre and Circular Quay.
The apartments appeared reasonably clean, however, the poor state of the toilet brushes suggest the cleaning is superficial only.
Our 2-bedroom unit was large and spacious, great for hanging out, eating take-aways and watching movies.
What appeared to be a well-stocked "Welcome Pack" on the worktop, which included a bottle of wine, was in fact an extension of the minibar; luckily we realised that before tucking into some of the goodies!
While the Reception staff were very pleasant, they seemed to have no information on the local bus services or on local restaurants. Crown Street has many good restaurants within a 10 minute stroll from the apartments (Tabou was superb, Pizza e Birra also very good, Bill's - next door - do a HUGE and tasty breakfast, while the Dolphin hotel was not so good).
Internet access at Adina is very, very expensive, about 13 dollars per hour, and what we did was use one of 2 PCs in Reception where the charges were 6 dollars per hour, but with a minimum of 10 mins @ 1 dollar we could keep the cost of checking emails, etc., down. Most European hotels view wireless internet access in the same category as hot water, electricity, pillows - essential and free! Why do Ozzie hotels charge so much for what is now an important part of the overall package?
