Adelaide City

Bordered by the North, East, South and West Terraces, the city is one of the best areas to stay in Adelaide.

North Adelaide

Filled with heritage-listed buildings and grand cathedrals, North Adelaide is a true jewel in the city's crown. Just minutes from Adelaide Oval, this inner-city location is a great base to enjoy a stay. Find something amazing to eat at any hour on O'Connell Street, or walk down to the River Torrens and observe the lights of the city from Montefiore Hill.
