Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury
Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the Adina Apartment Hotel group, our interstate board members are so lucky to stay at the old State Treasury which has been transformed into a gorgeous inner-city getaway for all types of travellers.
Situated on Flinders Street, looking out on to Victoria Square, the 79 room building offers its guests a luxurious and relaxing stay. Given its proximity to main roads and Adelaide nightlife, if you’re looking for a quiet and chilled out stay, the Adelaide Treasury has got you covered.
Walking into the lobby, the history of the building immediately presents itself; from the displays adorning the walls (the country’s first gold coin was minted here) to the exposed stone walls. While exploring the premises, you are able to enter the historic tunnels – widely speculated to have been part of an underground rail system connecting other buildings through the city.
Left largely bare, the expansive nature of the tunnels put into perspective their use during the 1960s – cartographers and surveyors would use the tunnel network to make and print some extensive and detail maps of the city.
Once you have explored the tunnels, you’ll find the hotel’s impressive indoor pool and gym area are situated immediately above, as the intricate maze of stairwells and rooms continue to wrap around each corner. Most rooms have plaques next to them to acknowledge their significance during the building’s heyday.
If you are seeking to explore the rest of the grounds, the Adina Adelaide Treasury offers bar and restaurant options, with Treasury on King William offering guests a great menu of modern Australian cuisine, as well as a wine selection you’d expect a South Australian bar to boast proudly. Dine in the famous courtyard (known as being a quick thoroughfare for The Beatles during their Adelaide stopover in 1964) and take in the gorgeous fountains and leafy design – again, you wouldn’t need to leave the actual premises if you wanted a little sojourn from the bustle of the CBD.
Overall, the Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury is a shining gem in the otherwise concrete grid of the city’s business centre. Perfectly nestled in a position that makes nightlife, shopping and market wandering all easily accessible, the site is a great option for a quick getaway or a longer stay. Particularly during February and March, when Adelaide is in the throes of its festival season, a place like this is a great retreat from the madness.
For a room at the Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury, rates start at approximately $155 AUD per night.
