“Good short stay, good choice for business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

The apartments are located ideally for visitors planning a short business trip during the week and also weekend away. Modern fit out, clean overall with good bedding and linen. Bathroom was a bit dimly lit and similar to other review could probably do with some maintenance however cannot pick out anything else. For business and breakfast the hotel has some great chargeback options with a Italian restaurant nearby and Thai restaurant located on Hindley St 1 block away, and a great cafe next door that does a good coffe and let's you grab a packed lunch for the day ahead. Being on north terrace you're walking distance to the best Adelaide's CBD has on offer. Would recommend and stay here again.

Stayed March 2014, travelled on business

We stayed here for two nights. Our air conditioned apartment contained all the facilities needed to cater for ourselves if we had wanted to do so as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer. By way of a bonus, we also had a spa bath in addition to the shower. The twins bed were both queen size which allowed us to sleep very comfortably. There were TVs in in both the lounge and the bedroom together with DVD/CD players in the former. We were slightly worried that we would be disturbed by noise from people returning to the hotel late at night but this did not happen. The sound insulation between apartments and corridors was very effective.The location on North Terrace is very good and just a short walk from the central night life areas. We are happy to recommend this hotel for anyone seeking a self catering hotel apartment in central Adelaide.

This has to be my favourite hotel! For the price you pay, you get so much more than any other hotel!

I have spent at least 5 of my birthdays in this hotel I love it so much!

Staff are always super friendly and helpful and happy to assist to any request.

You get a whole apartment, full kitchen and laundry, great bedroom and lounge room!

Balcony always has a great view!

The spa bath is huuuge and can easily fit a couple for a romantic night!

Rooms are always spotless and super spacious!

Great location, right in the city centre!

Will definitely be staying here again! Highly recommend!!

We stayed there back in May found the room to be very clean except the shower could do with some more attention down the bottom other than that we were quite happy with the stay very close to everything

We rate this hotel so relatively highly on the basis of price ($109 per night), good location on North Terrace, better than average size of rooms, and more than adequate quality of service. If these are high on your list of criteria in choosing a hotel to stay in Adelaide - then seriously consider the Oaks Embassy. It is close to nightspots, casino, Sebel Playford breakfast buffet, the car rental outlets and the CBD.

We stayed here for 3 nights, large because our favourite, the Sebel Playford (a couple of blocks along North Terrace) was full. Whilst the Oaks Embassy has none of the luxuries that top class hotels have - valet parking, pool/gym/spa, room service, bathrobes, quality amenities, real queen beds (rather than two singles pushed together with that horrible ridge in the middle), it has the benefits listed above.

It does't pretend to be anything that it is not.

Reception staff were very helpful - were arrived (2 adults, 1 child) in a campervan (tall) with 3 bicycles, which made checking in difficult. Had to park down lane at side to unload onto hotel luggage trolley and do a relay trip to room. This task was made easier by Joshua at reception who helped 'above and beyond'.
Great room (even though I'm not a fan of downlights) with loads of room, clean and excellent facilities. Didn't like opaque glass wall in bedroom, let in light from living/lounge. Road noise was a constant (9th floor), even with balcony doors closed. Main room entry door didn't self-close/lock all the way.

We stayed at the Oaks Embassy over the June long weekend for 3 nights. Our room was on level 6 and faced the east. We found the room perfect for our needs and enjoyed a very relaxed stay. We did not hear any traffic or people noise during the 3 days and nights.
We found the location ideal for visiting the art gallery, museum, Adelaide oval, and the footy as well as late night shopping in Rundle Mall and Zoo via Popeye. The staff on reception were very busy at times but always courteous and obliging. The room was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed for our stay. We did not have a room with a spa by choice nor did we attend the restaurant for breakfast choosing to bring our own supplies
