Excellent in every way

We were so blessed to have found this accommodation! We stayed here for three nights and were so sad to have to leave Adelaide, and this place! First of all, check in was a breeze and the room was spotless and brimming with what most travelers would probably need. Big and comfy bed with two pillows per person? Check! Clean and spacious bathroom with top of the range toiletries? Working air-conditioner? Check! Coffee machine, large fridge and vending machines on-site? Check! Lots of racks and hooks to hang everything? Check!

Next, the location was just perfect. It was a walking distance to nearby excellent eateries (and such a wide variety on O’Connell street). The bus stop for the free city bus was also just a short walk away and we managed to catch the bus to Rundle mall and back with zero hassle. The accommodation is also located on one of the prettiest streets we’ve seen, with many beautiful historical buildings and a park just round the corner. We took slow after-dinner strolls around the neighbourhood every evening, just admiring the buildings and reading the information plaques on some of them.

I’d certainly highly recommend this place to any traveler looking for affordable yet top-class accommodation in Adelaide.

Exceeded our expectations

Absolutely exceeded our expectations. Seamless booking and after hours access. Brilliant communication and very friendly staff. Convenient location. Safe and secure off street parking. Thoughtfully styled apartment. Incredibly comfortable bed, large bathroom with luxurious toiletries, spotlessly clean and well appointed kitchenette and studio room. Brilliant concept of a vending machine in a common area near the main office, enabling purchase of snap frozen meals from local eateries. Such a welcome option to dine in, after a long day. We will definitely be returning customers.

Always Brilliant

I always stay here when in Adelaide. My first trip back there since covid and still as brilliant as ever. I am worried about giving too good a review as I might find I can never book there as they will always be full. 🙂

Best value you could ask for!

I took my partner for a night about town for her birthday and stayed in the spa room. It was absolutely perfect, we ended up leaving town by 8 so we could spend more time in the room. Super clean room, bed and facilities were perfect, came with everything you need. And the bathroom was the highlight, included a really big spa with a TV at the end and mood lighting, as well as two huge dual waterfall shower heads. It was such a good experience, my girlfriend thought i spent a fortune and it definitely won me some brownie points. Awesome stay

Great attention to detail, fantastic value for money and the location is amazing

Over a week in NABSA, it was absolutely perfect for my needs. Fantastic value and the location is great for a visitor. I think the best thing is the feeling that it’s privately owned (I don’t know if it is or not), but it has the boutique feel, like the decor etc has been done by an individual not a big corporate churn out. The staff were lovely, and in the face of covid19 restrictions kicking in while I was there I felt for so many businesses that are hard hit by the covid control measures. Would strongly recommend NABSA.

An Absolut GEM!

We spent 5 nights in a Spa room, and in all honesty the experience was perfect from beginning to end. The room itself is spacious and modern, and everything looks like it was packed out of a new box only yesterday. Likewise the bathroom sparkles with a large spa bath and a double shower. All the towels are huge and fluffy. Even though the main strip, full of lovely restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels is a very short stroll away, Gover street itself is lovely and tree lined with minimal traffic. From our room (22), not a sound could be heard from anywhere. The heart of the CBD is an easy 30 minute walk away, as is the Casino.The location really could not have been better and of course parking is free, which in itself is a pretty good attraction as opposed to being in the CBD itself…. oh and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive.

Great accommodation!

My stay at NABSA was wonderful. The wheelchair accessible room is a lovely studio with a well designed wheelchair friendly bathroom, complete with a roll in shower. The kitchenette was compact, well suited to the size of the room and the needs of someone looking to make breakfast, or tea at the end of a busy day. The counters are standard height, but the nearby table was a perfect alternative that I could easily access from my wheelchair. Plates, cups, cutlery etc was stored drawers that were easy to reach from my chair. The room even had a small patio space outside to enjoy the morning sun. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was walking/rolling distance to amenities. Just note that parking was available, but tight! I recommend this accommodation and would stay again on a return trip to Adelaide.

The accommodation is well appointed, sparkling clean and very comfortable. Anja and Angela are the most hospitable, efficient and welcoming hosts.

Very pleasant stay

My choice of these boutique apartments was the closeness to the city centre, as well as to the Adelaide Aquatic Centre for my fitness activities. I thoroughly enjoyed my four week stay at NABSA. I appreciated the way the apartments blend with the local area, in a street lined with leafy trees. From the coffee machine in my elegant and practically decorated room to the daily attention of my room servicing, the quality body products and managers who looked after my requirements, it was a joy to stay there. The laundry is well equipped and I was able to hang my washing outside on the lines to dry The residential location provided me with interesting walks (NABSA also have free rental bikes) and I noticed many homes had a blue plaque with historic information. Nearby in the Village is a supermarket, or I could go to the city centre, or catch a 22_ bus to stop 21 on Main North Road for shopping centres. NABSA is between Jeffcott and O’Connell Streets, both of which have a choice of buses, as well as being able to take a shortcut to Tynte Street for the free Connector buses. A visitor was also able to park on the premises. I researched NABSA before making the booking, as well as making enquiries directly. I also spoke with a guest who returns regularly. I would certainly like to visit NABSA again in future.

Our Favourite Stay

My partner and I stayed overnight mid-week for a concert at the Entertainment Centre, which is a convenient 10 minute drive away. Anja greeted us upon arrival for a quick and easy check-in and she then personally showed us to our room. We booked a Spa Room for the first time which was immaculate (as every room we’ve stayed in has been), modern and nice and cozy (the heater had been turned on prior to our arrival). Despite the property being fully booked for the night, we still managed to get a park right outside of our door which made unloading the car a breeze. The car parks are spacious and secure and we’ve never had a problem getting one even when checking in later in the day. We love the location – Gover Street is easy to find, set back from main roads so there’s minimal noise pollution is a short walk to and from O’Connell Street which is great for grabbing dinner or supplies from the large service station on the corner. Yet again the bed was so comfortable and there were plenty of pillows, as well as tea and coffee supplies including a pod coffee machine. We always feel safe and secure staying at NABSA and the property has been consistently ‘low-noise’ every time we’ve stayed, during both busy and less-busy periods. I cannot recommend NABSA enough, whether for short or long stays, during the week or over a weekend. It is always our go-to when needing modern, clean, convenient accommodation in Adelaide. We will absolutely be back! Lastly, if you’re looking for somewhere to have brunch after check-out, we’d recommend The Flying Fig Delicatessen which is just down the road from NABSA on Jeffcott Street – easy to find for perfect coffee, filling meals and funky digs!

“The best accommodation in North Adelaide – without question!”

From the moment I enquired over the phone about a booking, to the end of our stay, both Anja and Angie were ultimate professionals. I knew we had chosen accommodation which was going to be special.
My mum and I stayed here in December to attend a week-long round of medical appointments with specialists in North Adelaide. We have stayed in many hotels, apartments, medical accommodation etc in Adelaide over the past 15 years prior to and after mum’s surgery and North Adelaide Boutique Stays was hands-down the most luxurious and comfortable of all. It’s just what you need when you have the added stress of a worrisome medical condition.
Coming back to our modern, immaculately clean upstairs Studio room each afternoon with 2 King single beds, we could relax and then decide about our evening meal. We could order takeaway delivered to our room, stroll to a restaurant (Angie kindly offered various discount vouchers from local pubs towards the end of our stay), or heat up a delicious frozen pasta meal from the vending machine downstairs in our kitchenette’s microwave. We stocked up on bread, butter and vegemite from the nearby supermarket to make toast downstairs in the vending machine room each morning for breakfast.You can make complimentary cappuccino coffees in the front office after 8.30am, or use the Nespresso machine in your room. There’s also complimentary apples, cookies etc. in the front office too. Every little thing has been thought of to ensure a pleasant stay, like a home away from home.
I used the spotless, coin-operated laundry facilities at NABSA and hung my clothes on the lines in the sunny paved courtyard behind the laundry, pegs also provided of course.
Nothing was too much trouble for the incredibly helpful Angie. She called taxis for us to go to the hospital and specialist appointments, printed out medical forms for us, was incredibly concerned about my mum’s health and took a genuine interest in us, not just as paying guests, but offered to help in any way she could to ensure our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Now, you don’t get that very often! We were made to feel most welcome and will definitely return.
NABSA is conveniently located 1km from The Women’s and Children’s Hospital and just a short walk to the O’Connell Street restaurants, pubs and shopping centre. You won’t do better if you are looking for immaculate accommodation in North Adelaide!
