Combining heritage charm with modern amenities, the devotedly restored Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury is a building steeped in history. Built in 1839, the former Treasury site now houses 80 guestrooms including award-winning studios and apartments, all designed to provide the comforts of home with kitchens or kitchenettes, laundry and grocery-delivery services and more. It may be one of the oldest buildings in South Australia, but the hotel is a fresh, friendly second-home in the heart of the city. Fun fact: the Treasury sit atop a warren of underground tunnels formerly used to transport gold. Explore the subterranean surrounds by arranging a National Trust Treasury Tunnel Tour to see the city from a new angle.
It doesn’t get more central than this, facing Victoria Square in the very centre of the CBD. Foodies can explore the Adelaide Central Market and Chinatown district, less than 10 minutes walk to the west – though you’re spoilt for coffee, food and beverage choices in every direction. Stop at Please Say Please on Grenfell Street for your caffeine fix, paired with the novelty macaron flavour of the week.
