I stayed here with a friend on a saturday night we also went to the boogie nights to dance the night away to the flaming sambuccas. Checkin was fast and efficient, the room was neat and tidy the bathroom was a little small, the beds are a bit tired though comfortable but the pillows are very old and flat and...

Highly recommended by myself if you want to get a place to stay while in Adelaide. Near to city, convenient to stores and certainly have great room services. My family and I did not go for the more luxurious rooms but we were pleasantly surprised by what is on offer with our more budget family room at the ground floor....

For the relatively low price paid I was uncertain what to expect. Need not have worried. The room was large, clean, quiet and comfortable. The air con and TV worked well. Bistro breakfast was great, all staff at Reception were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was a little dated but again was clean and well-equipped and the shower was hot....

I wasn't expecting much from the Arkaba. It looks like a time warp from the 70's and I can only describe it as "ugly" from the outside but it's actually quite funky and the rooms were neat and clean, quiet and perfectly adequate. There's quite a bit going on there too with a few bars, a bistro, a function room,...

This hotel was booked for us by a third party following a torrential downpour that resulted in flooding in our apartment and other apartments in our complex. I think there were about 26 rooms occupied by residents from our apartment block. It was a real surprise. The standard of the rooms would definitely be at the upper level of a...
