    5/5 Excellent

    Great location with easy access to the Central Markets, Chinatown, Rundle Mall and public transport. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend booking a Sky View unit as these offer great views of the city and surrounding areas. We had a one bedroom unit which was a good size for two people. Laundry is separate which allows more room in the bathroom. Our unit had combined washer/dryer machine, these things take ages to dry clothes as you often have to set the dryer a second time.

    4/5 Good

    The view was great and the balcony with opening glass doors and windows was great. Good to have the extra blanket provided as the weather was quite cold and I needed it at night. The staff at the reception were very friendly. Lockers would be good for the pool area for safety of personal items. Great to have the free paper provided. The ironing board did not stand up fully so I could not use this. There was no full length mirror. There was no free wi-fi. There was no gym onsite. The doors in the hallway did not open properly as they were flush with the carpet so I could not store my luggage there. There was no soap dish and it made it a bit messy on the bathroom bench, and the tap splashed back against the mirror and made a mess. There was no hand towel rack close to the sink. The instructions for the washer/dryer were too brief, I wanted more details about the dryer as I wanted a short sharp setting and to open the door halfway through drying which I was unable to do so. There was no drying rack for the dishes in the kitchen nor a tea towel rack either. There was no obvious recycling option, I had to give it to reception which I would have preferred to do this myself. The toiletries may have been provided in recycled plastic containers however the washes contained sodium laureth sulphate which is incredibly bad for the environment. I did not realise that the paper towel provided in the kitchen was reusable, no instructions were provided about this.

    Do not stay here! The pictures on the website do not accurately reflect the shabbiness of the room. When we arrived quite late after a delayed flight, we drove to the hotel. The entrance to the hotel is not obvious but after a drive around the block, we figured it out. However, the entrance was locked and there was no one at the desk to let us in. Instead, a resident trusted us, let us in the building, and escorted us to reception. She then informed the front desk personnel that they had guests. When we checked in, we were informed that there was no parking available at the hotel. Instead, parking was available next door but without in and out privileges. Since it was late, we parked on the street which is free overnight until 8:00 a.m. We dragged our luggage to the building where the apartment was located (The reception desk and the apartments are not in the same building which is confusing when trying to locate apartment for the first time.). When we got up to the apartment, all the windows were wide open even though it is winter. The garbage had not been emptied from the previous guests, and the refrigerator was wide open and had a towel jammed inside. The apartment was obviously not ready for guests. The apartment is very shabby and the carpet needs to be cleaned, if not replaced. We just had a really bad feeling about this place and I believe intrusting my instincts so we checked out the same night.
