Best value, comfort & style!”

Price, spaciousness, cleanliness -- for longer stays with maximum comfort -- you really cannot go past this ideal choice!

We booked 7nights in a 1Br w Skyview - we were absolutely blown away by how spacious,clean &professional this experience was. Apart from lack of free wifi (comp 30mins a day only) - everything else was top notch: the view,the lounge area, the very efficient heating,well-designed room layouts & good water pressure in the shower. Yes there were hardly enough toiletries for our 1wk stay -- but for the little price you pay -- you can't expect the earth! Bring your basic toiletries,purchase $2/day sim from Optus & you're more than set for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. When we wanted to extend our stay after the week- unfortunately Saturday night was booked out. I had to move to a smaller hotel of the same price range -- my experience there was abysmal. A far cry from the comfort and space we had grown used to at iStay. I rarely ever write raving reviews -- but this business really deserves all the support for how well priced and professional it has managed to stay. We will always return to iStay for future visits home from now on!

Incredible value for money”

The front desk staff were excellent - friendly and helpful, very comfortable rooms.

We couldn't have been happier with our 4 night stay at the Oaks iStay Precinct in Morphett Street, Adelaide. Every interaction we had with front desk staff was excellent, our stay was easy and comfortable. The hotel is well located to the rest of the CBD especially restaurants on Gouger and Waymouth Streets and the building itself (Altitude tower) is unusual compared to the rest of the Adelaide skyline. We booked a one bedroom apartment at a fantastic rate and ended up with a 2 bedroom apartment (which turned out to be convenient as my partner got sick during our trip) so it was fantastic value for money. The kitchen was very functional with a dishwasher, oven, full stove, small fridge and kitchenware. My only negative comment would be that even though the hotel is fairly new, the cream carpet was quite stained. Check out the pool!

Perfect apartment stay Adelaide”

Modern room, clean & quiet, great city location

The IStay Precinct is conveniently located in the city of Adelaide and all major shopping areas such as Chinatown and Rundel Mall are within walking distances. The view from the 9th floor allowed to see the Spencer Gulf and overlooked the city. The security system and safe access to the apartment was commendable and easy to use the swipe card. Parking was easily accessible and lifts available from car park to apartment floor. We will certainly stay there again

Very happy with my stay at iStay Precinct.”

Best 3 things about this hotel: (1) Price (great value for money, only $104 per night) (2) Room quality (large and clean and free Foxtel) (3) Location (heart of Adelaide)

Price was great value for money (only $104 per night). Room quality was excellent. The room was large and clean (bathroom / toilet, kitchenette, hall, bedroom). Liked the huge bed. Liked the free Foxtel on television. Liked the private balcony and water saving shower head. Light dimmers were a cool touch. Did note freezer compartment in fridge was small, so good for ice cubes but would not buy a litre of ice cream. In summary for $104 per night I would absolutely positively stay at iStay Precinct again.

Price, location, modern accommodation

The outside of the iStay Precinct isn't the most attractive building but the accommodation is clean, modern and generously sized! We had a 2 bedroom appartment which was beautiful and had comfortable beds, a large balcony and kitchen and laundry facilities. It had a nice view over the city and a large park and was walking distance to Rundle Mall for shopping and dining. The apartment was secure and safe as there are multiple access points where you must use your card to gain access. On top of this, the hotel is very cheap and great value for money. The only downside is that some taxi drivers find it hard to locate as apparantly it has changed names a couple of times?

Great location”

room comfort, good location, courteous/helpful staff

We enjoyed our stay at the iStay Precinct. Good location - eating places and shops closeby; no necessity for us to drive our car. However, aircond in room needs to be serviced. Dust were coming out from the air-cond and landing onto the carpet. As the room was unserviced, we had to sweep them aside daily during our 3-days stay. We had informed a staff about it. On the whole, apart from that, we are quite happy and satisfied with our stay at iStay Precinct.

Location, modern rooms.

Since we come to Adelaide on business quite often, we needed a hotel that was within close proximity to the Court House. iStay was located right in the heart of the CBD and was within walking distance to our destination. The rooms and facilities are modern, clean and sufficient. We had everything we needed in the self contained apartment we stayed in. This accommodation is highly recommended and would definitely stay again.

A quiet place not too far from shops, the kitchen's fine, everything works and even a balcony!

i stayed at istay precinct for a week while attending a conference and absolutely loved it. i was looking for a business hotel and expecting to eat my meals outside. my reservation was ready at the promised time and the staff was extremely helpful. as soon as i checked in, i was impressed with the layout - it was quite spacious for a single room. the kitchen was well equipped with utensils and all the appliances worked well. there was a microwave oven, toaster, electric toaster and gas stove, dishwasher, a midsized refridgerator - it was just like home! with the kitchen, i had the option of cooking simple meals which saved me quite some money. the bedroom was a little cramped but there was ample wardrobe space and the bed was comfy. the inhouse laundry was snugged neatly in the bathroom without being obstrusive. actually enjoyed just sitting on the couch watching the lcd tv. istay is about 20 minutes walk from the shopping mall but there are some convenience stores closeby if you need to get some essentials. i am one very happy visitor!

Keep an eye out for cheap rates. We got the Skyview apartment. It was comfortable, spacious for us both, facilities (kitchen, washing machine) were good to have. However, no complimentary shampoo and body soap for a 4 star accommodation? Apart from that, we can't really fault much else. Easy short walk to Rundle Mall, central market, Chinatown. Staff is friendly enough. All this for a cheap price. Most hotels can't beat this. I would definitely consider living here in my next Adelaide trip.

There were only couple of areas that could be improved. The light colour of carpet made all the dirt show up, a darker shade would be more suitable for a hotel.

It is fully equipped with a functional kitchen, washer plus dryer, hence you can do simple cooking and washing during your stay.

We have stayed now at iStay Precinct various times due to it's convenient location in the heart of Adelaide CBD. We've been this time unfortunate and stayed in an apartment located towards the main road which was extremely noisy. The rooms slowly show their wear and tear, we found the mattress being uncomfortable but all in all it is still a good stay and gets you in minutes walking to China Town, restaurants and shopping places.
