I am so glad we picked these apartments on our visit to Adelaide. Friendly, smooth check in at the reception. Safe and secure car park. Now the room - pristinely clean, excellent facilities, comfy bed, great bathroom with amenities and so much room. We could not fault anything and will definitely stay here again on our next visit. Free wifi was a bonus!

Great place spotless and tidy. Location is superb and parking available. Lots of restaurants and bars to explore and a pretty City to explore as well. Would definetly go back when we return to Adelaide.

Comfortable, clean and well designed space. Everything we needed and great neighbourhood. Good work table, large TV , free wifi, well maintained building. Staff were friendly and responsive. We’d stay here again.

Upon arrival I was impressed with how the apartments looked. Once checked in we dropped our things off into the room and looked it over. Was a decent apartment, toilet and bathroom were dirty though and we didn’t have enough towels for all of us. The location is excellent with lots of cafes around and only a short trip to Rundle mall. Though if you’re needing to relax and reset this may not be the place for you. It was extremely noisy, we were woken up multiple times by drunken people stumbling back to their rooms and by the people above us at 5 and 6am stomping around and showering. The water pipes in the wall sound as though someone is turning on a tap in the bedroom. For the price I would have liked to be more comfortable and had a more enjoyable experience.

We stayed here with friends over the Easter weekend for two nights. The apartment is conveniently located. It was clean and well equipped. Probably the biggest issue we had was the street noise in the bedrooms despite the windows being closed and the aircon not cooling the apartment down sufficiently.

Another lovely stay at The. Old Lion Apartments. Friendly staff who sorted out the one issue I had very promptly. Very good area to stay in lots of food options. Definitely will stay again in the near future.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and it was great. The room was decorated tastefully and just beautiful and the king-sized bed was soo comfortable. The sculptured gardens just magnificent. Would recommend to everyone.

What a lovely place to stay whilst catching up with everybody. Central to everything. Lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from in Melbourne St, just around the corner. Even a free shuttle bus across the road to take you to the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for six nights and the gardens were immaculate. We had a self contained two bedroom apartment and it was quite spacious for the three of us. Only incident to report was our rooms were missed in cleaning one day, so was a disappointment to come home after a full day out to find our beds not made up and no fresh towels and it wasn’t Sunday. I guess we were so spoilt in having room service every other day. Will definitely stay here again as a family,as a couple, you can’t beat staying in the city.

Our family had a 3 bedroom apartment, 2 bedroom apartment and one Annex room. The location for accessing WOMAD was perfect, an easy walk, we also had bikes for the two kids which made getting home much easier after a day of walking around WOMAD. The apartments were clean and had everything we needed. The only downfall was we had a couple of very warm nights and the air-conditioning isn't enough when you need your bedroom door closed. A fan for the bedrooms would alleviate the problem. We had no traffic noise and apartments above ground floor were very quiet. The couple in the Annex said it was wonderfully quiet being at the back of the complex. Staff were friendly and helpful. There are some great food and shopping options within walking distance. Check out The Spot on Melbourne for delicious Vietnamese food.

Apartments are well appointed however bathroom toilet cisterns and seats are old and yellowed which appear dirty. Good central location in Nth Adelaide walking distance to cafes and the city via pleasant river paths. Depending which side you are on can be a little noisy at times due to the Lion hotel next door. We have stayed their several times and would again if they upgraded their bathrooms fully.
