“Good for 1 or 2 nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2009

Check-in should be fully automated. But since we made a booking through booking.com, we didn't have the correct booking number and the system could not found us back. So we had to use the intercom to talk to a friendly lady who gave us the correct reference. This reference didn't work neither and after intervening again, it worked. We were able to progress through the check-in procedure ourselves. At the end however, the kiosk was expected to spit out key cards and a receipt with the room number. The latter didn't come. Again, we had to use the intercom to ask what room we were actually in.

The rooms itself was clean, with a big bed. But indeed, very small. This was no issue for us, since we only stayed for 1 night. But I can image it getting an issue after a few nights.

The hotel seems to be located quite good: close to bus stops and walking distance from the CBD

I've never stayed in such small hotel rooms - takes getting used to. Some of the rooms actually appear larger than others. Check-in is via a kiosk - worked flawlessly. There is a dedicated intercom connection for help. Location of hotel in North Adelaide was pretty good - shops, cafes, restaurants nearby. Close to the Women's & Children's Hospital. Internet is expensive, and typical of Australia, there aren't too many places offering free wireless. My main complaint would be the sheer miniaturization of the room - just a bit too small. If they added 5 square metres, it would make a huge difference. Beds and sheets were OK, you get two towels - don't throw them on the floor as the room is made up once per week.

Room is small but sufficient if you are travelling with minimal luggage. It comes with bed, tv, mini fridge and attached bath. Self check in via terminal at the entrance.

We arrived at 10am and room is not available yet but they allowed us to deposit our luggage at the Majestic Lion Apartment which is about 5 min walk from Minima.

If you required a secured parking lot in the building, this might not be a good place. The building has only 2 covered parking lots which belongs to the hotel and is chargeable at AUD8/day(?). Everyday we arrived back to hotel, we are unable to get a parking in the building. There are parking lots available on the street with some parking restrictions.
But it's good enough for us.

Location is good. Melbourne street has quite a few good restaurants and good coffee Cibo is just around the corner, our usual breakfast place. There are buses to catch to the city just across the road. It takes about 10 - 15min ride to the city.

Great little boutique hotel, perfect for a short stays, fully equipped with all the essentials....like big beds and tv's!!!
centrally located to shops and restaurants....and all I needed was my visa to CHECK-IN!!!!
and what topped it off was inviting my girls friends for a little drink on their guest terrance before we went down the street for dinner....
Highly recommended!!!
