“Room to move in a central location that makes it easy to get around.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The key feature is the location next to the train station, tram line and city circle bus route. Easy to get everywhere. The apartment was spacious. All basic requirements are in there but consumables eg soap are limited. Room was clean. We had no issues disposing of own rubbish. No phone and no phone book which limits capacity to get in touch with local services. Kevin was very accommodating of our needs to access the apartment to meet the requirements to attend a specialist appointment. We found the lack of on site reception a little tricky as we needed to have a piece of medical equipment delivered when we were not in the room but did manage to get around this it just required extra planning. Yes, we would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: rooms facing back of Hindley street carry the noise of the discos and nightlife.

We stayed in the oaks horizon building in a one bedroom apartment. Good location for new years eve and stayed there for a few days.
The bathroom was full featured, though wasn't thoroughly clean and there was some mould build up in the shower. It had a kitchen, though not enough utensils and glasses. There weren't any tongs or an egg flip.
Comfy beds and good airconditioning kept us cool on the 40 degree days.

On booking an Executive apartment, for 7 nights over New Year, we received confirmation we were booked into the Oaks Embassy. We knew La Loft was not part of the hotel, rather a private business, so no issue with contacting the agent to let them know when we were arriving, and the agent contacted us a number of times during the day to check the details of our arrival, so no issue. We were told to meet the agent at the Oaks Horizon, which seemed odd, given we had confirmation for Oaks Embassy. The agent showed us the apartment in the Horizon, the car park and showed us where to drop the keys when we left. Was it an Executive apartment? We doubt it as the apartment matched the photos on line of the standard apartments. We went to make a coffee next morning and discovered there was no kettle and the washing machine was obviously broken, it was not connected to power or water and the door was broken. I rang the La Loft number and Kevin said he would get these things fixed, bring the kettle around and 'get the maintenance man to swap the washing machine'. I explained it was not urgent and we would like to use the washing machine during our week stay. We left after seven days and yes no washing machine was replaced, the kettle was brought promptly. Car parking is an issue and this was over subscribed during the week. The first time we were unable to park the car we rang the contact who instructed us to just park in any of the 'red signed' car parks (Oaks Horizon parks). The whole building does not have enough car parks for the number of apartments, just one of many apartment buildings in Adelaide built or being built for people without cars! On the cleanliness side, we cleaned the cook top as it had baked on food, we opened the oven and closed it again smelling very old fat and we bought bathroom cleaner to remove the mould in the shower/bath/spa, this must be the smallest spa/bath ever definitely not one for having a relaxing spa or soak in. The apartments are serviced weekly, there are basic emergency shampoo etc (one of each so enough for one day) bring your own. There were 2 towels so we dried them on the balcony as we couldn't wash them. The information in the apartment indicated we would be responsible for any breakages and yet there were 2 of this glass, 3 of another set and 4 of a third. The Oaks Horizon itself has a large list of rules displayed in the lifts, all rather negative and a bit off putting, or do the rules reflect the clientele that normally stay in the building? On the positive the apartments are centrally located on North Tce. Would we stay here again either with La Loft or the Horizon, I think not.

Room Tip: Double check what you book.

Stayed at La Loft twice, both times booked by work so I didn't have a choice but to stay here. First time stayed 2 weeks in an apartment in Oaks Horizon building. Second time it was in the Embassy building. If I had spent my own money to stay here I would've been very annoyed. Both apartments were really dirty; dirty, tattered, stained carpet (you wouldn't want to walk around bare foot here!), dirty and stained furniture, dirty cutlery/plates/glasses, moldy showers, threadbare towels and nice view if construction site. I couldn't wait to get out of there both times. Don't waste your money, book elsewhere!

This apartment was in the heart of Adelaide. Across the road from the Railway Station, Free City Loop bus outside the front door and the tram to Glenelg also at the front door. A 10 minute stroll to Rundle Mall, Museum, Art Gallery, Convention Centre the lot.
The apartment was 2 bedroom both with large queen beds. There was a two way bathroom complete with spa bath and a lovely large dining room and lounge. The kitchen was a full size with everything that was needed. Local shops made shopping and cooking at our 'home away from home' very easy. As we were at the back the noise level was minor, but with windows closed and air con on it was very peaceful.
First time in Adelaide and it is the most beautiful city I have been too and I have been around the world several times staying in loads of hotels and apartments in various cities.

Handy location and great to have a full kitchen and a spacious appartment while on a longer business trip. Pool/spa/sauna/gym area good too - though a bit tired.

If you need a landline phone be aware there is none in the room - they assume everyone uses a mobile these days. Locals probably do, but I like to have access to a landline so family can call me. The broadband in the room is also very dear, $20 for 2 hours or something - and no 24 hour plan. It is much better idea to buy a mobile broadband modem (USB stick). I picked one up for $49 with 4 Gig of data allowance valid for 30 days. They can be topped up readily and cheaply.

Also be aware this property is inside the Oaks hotel, so your taxi driver will not know it as La Loft. The host called me the day before I arrived to plan to meet me there. We agreed a time but she also said to call from the airport when I landed. The number she gave me was a cell number - she didn't charge her phone, so I ended up sitting in the lobby of the Oaks hotel waiting for over an hour for her. VERY unprofessional.

We have been staying in La Loft apartments, North Terrace, Adelaide for the past 8 years and continue to return for a number of reasons: These apartments are not only spacious and with access to a large heated indoor pool, gymnasium & sauna but they are brilliantly positioned with a number of key attractions and other facilities within walking distance. The River Torrens, fringed by beautiful parklands and wonderful walks and cycling tracks, the Adelaide Festival Theatre, the Casino and the Adelaide Railway station are all directly accross the road! The main Rundle Mall shopping precinct is a 5 minute walk away and the Adelaide Central Markets are an easy 15 minute stroll away. If walking isn't your thing, then across the road is one of the stops for the free tram service - or then again, equally conveniently located is the free round the city bus service. The La Loft apartments are much cheaper than the other apartments within the same building complex because they are independently managed without front desk services. Instead, Kevin or one of his great crew members from La Loft, greet you upon arrival and escort you to your apartment. Kevin, the manager, is the other reason we keep retrurning! He is a real gem and goes out of his way to make you feel as though you are a valued guest - nothing is too much trouble! For us, after so many repeat visits, we alkmost see him as a friend and we know that we will consistently get satisfaction & value for money.

Room Tip: It is worth paying extra for the rooms with a view to the River Torrens. Obviously, the higher up yo...
