Picked this accommodation solely on price and location. Checked the reviews and it seemed like it would be value for money for one night. I tried booking online and even though the process completed online when I phoned the next day (day of arrival) the booking hadn't been received by the management so I had to rebook.
Because we arrived early parking was no problem, but as is the case with most inner city properties it filled quickly leaving only the street (and the ubiquitous parking revenue raisers) if you miss out. Once parked you don't need your car to get to the city centre which can be walked to (10-15 minutes) or a free bus ride (all buses free in the city zone) from Adelaide Tce. Northbridge is about 25 minutes walk with plenty of food options. We ordered a pizza from the recommended "All Night Pizza" in Vic park and were very disappointed. The river is only a couple of minutes walk across a park.
The room we had was a "Double/Single", a single room with a kitchen and bathroom. It has the a single bed and a queen size bed. The room is nothing flash. The pillows were old and flat, the mattresses were also on the worn side. There is a basic flat screen TV, aircon (which was not that efficient and we were pleased we didn't have to rely on it in heat) The kitchen is equipped with all necessities and would be sufficient for most stays. The bathroom is compact. The room could do with a good scrub, but wasn't filthy. The bed cover was a bit (dirt) stained, there was a little mould in the bathroom grout. We did have a visit from a mouse!
City Waters doesn't promise luxury but it was, for a city property, reasonable value and I would consider staying again. The close proximity to the city centre is the real selling point.
