iStay Precinct

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Convenient location, clean apartment. Bed too soft, front door slams loudly and car park is in a building that isn't linked to the actual accommodation block. However, for the purpose of our stay, the location was fantastic!

I boked this location on line and had no idea what to expect. I was delighted with the quality and value of this location; I highly recommend staying here. It's a proper apartment setting with all the equipment a traveller or long term guest requires. Amenities include parking, in-door pool, concierge services and an IT department. Awesome location in terms of access to the CBD and the sports stadiums. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Great stay with family over the WOMAD long weekend! Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable and clean. Furniture may be a tad worn, however for the price it is great value. There is construction work going on nearby which woke us early Saturday morning however was fine on the Sunday. Stand out at the place is the customer service. They were great! I also advise pre-booking a car spot prior to arriving if needed - there is great secure parking under the building.

Very poorly designed room. No ventilation in bedroom. Fixtures broken, worn out, ugly. Most uncomfortable stay I've had for many years. Security a joke. Privacy a joke. 'service' nil. Like being stuck in a transport container.

This apartment was convenient located within walking distance of down town to the North and China Town to the South which is near the bus station. Clean tidy and well equipped apartments with limited views but being out and about most of the time was not an issue.

Very convenient position to central town , good reception with seemingly good intentions, but what we did not know is that Hotel not being in the higher price bracket caters for all . Consequently the rooms get very used at times, our friends room was really one they should have complained to us about. White carpet ! who dreamt that up ? was VERY stained next to the bed. Room was otherwise very good for space, excellent sheets and good towels ( always important ) all rooms are overlooked by other rooms so you leave your blinds down

Enjoyed our stay in a large apartment and well equipped. Very good value. Close to Adelaide Market and a 15 minute walk to Rundel Mall. A little on the worn side but very clean. Great Pub The Cumberland around the corner for good food.

More attention needs to be given to stocking the rooms with crockery, cutlery and cooking implements as ours was very low on some pieces eg. 1 bowl. This is difficult when staying with a young infant and needing to cook and eat in.

Convenient location with easy access to all areas of Adelaide CBD. Great Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Only small problem was with the TV. Not fixed during our 3 night stay - might be my finger fault.

I stayed at iStay Precinct recently for 5 nights. A short walk to some good restaurants in "Chinatown" and into the main CBD of Adelaide. Check in was just ok, not much information given. When I asked about wifi I was told the information was on the website and that there was a charge after half hour. When I questioned that the staff member then advised that the Oaks group discouraged people booking through "" ??? If this is the case, why allow it? I didn't get what this had to do with WiFi... confusing? The website pics make the rooms look much bigger than what they are and the "view" we had was of the apartments across the road. The room was clean and tidy, good modern facilities, clean bathroom and spacious shower, and most thing you could need for an apartment of the type. Disappointed that the "kingsize" bed was two king singles put together. It was uncomfortable and not conducive to pleasant sleeping due to the join in the middle. The room had a small balcony which was ok, but the outside windows were filthy... you couldn't see out of them. First impressions count and getting out of the elevator on Level 5 and walking towards the room the carpet was absolutely filthy....drag marks and things spilt all over it was a real turn off. It just looked dirty and unkempt in the hallway. Overall, a nice enough place, but is nice enough good enough for he $$ paid? I don't know, I might try somewhere else next time. Cheers, V
