Reviewed April 24, 2013

Stayed one night in the one bedroom apartment and overall think its good value for the price and location. The apartment was very clean and well presented with modern furnishings, the reception staff friendly and the location central to the city centre. Bathroom included a washing machine, and the kitchen had a decent sized fridge.
Main drawback is as others have noted, with the main bedroom window opening onto the hallway. However there is a small split level gap between the window and the hallway so it's not as though anyone is walking past straight under the bedroom window. I had no problems with any noise from other guests walking past though and slept soundly. The other minor concern was that the aircon/heating unit is in the lounge area and isnt that powerful so took awhile to heat up the rest of the apartment.
The bedroom size is pretty small with the second bedroom having a single bed only, however for the price and the location this place is good value.

Room Tip: Ask for room that doesn't have the main bedroom window opening onto hallway if you are a light s...

Unfortunately the bedrooms have no air conditioners and no windows it gets quite stuffy. The air-conditioner in the lounge room is not strong enough to cool or warm the bedroom. Otherwise service is good, Location is excellent and the kitchen is well-equipped. Staff were very helpful

We arrived on a Friday evening to stay 3 days, & my husband & I agreed that the reception staff could not have been less interested in us the whole time we were there. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom, with the main bedroom feeling very claustrophobic, as it was so small & the only window opened to the hallway where everyone walked past you! It was also a hot week in Adelaide, & the air-conditioning was in the lounge, so the main bedroom was terribly hot! The second bedroom only had room for a single bed (no window), & the sofa bed in the lounge was fine, but you heard all the noise outside all night. There was rubbish trucks, street cleaners & the sound of the traffic lights every time they changed for pedestrians. The lounge room & kitchen were good & big enough. There is only one lift, which I would have thought might be a safety concern, & it could not have been slower.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from Franklin St. & with air-conditioning.

Thank you for your review.

I am disappointed to hear from you that our reception team , who always receive wonderful reviews from other travelers did not meet your expectations.

Being in such a wonderful and easy CBD location, means that some CBD noise will be heard.

There are windows located in the living area and these may have been open for you to be able to hear the noise so loudly as we generally do not have any issues.

Being a heritage listed building, we unfortunately cannot operate a second lift, however reception could have assisted you by advising where the stairs were located.

Once again thank you for your review and I look forward to seeing you again should you travel to Adelaide.

Great location, friendly and efficent service, close to all transport and shops. Comfortable apartment with everything you need for a great stay. And it is serviced daily! Front desk staff were very helpful, when we arrived early, not expecting to check in straight away, we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment as the previous guests were still in the apartment allocated to us, and taken up there immediately.

My Mum and myself spent 3 nights here from 27th March 2013, it is very close to all main shopping centres and places of area, we found it very easy to get to most places from here. The apartment was very tidy, comfortable and a full kitchen if you wish to do your own cooking, everything you could need. We were more than happy with our apartment and would definitely stay here again.
