The 5 Star Mayfair Hotel Adelaide is located in the City Centre in a historic building. Right after landing after a 24-hour Journey from Europe, the last leg with Qatar Airways from Doha straight to Adelaide, the comfortable bed has been a true relief. Situated at King William Street there are dozens of Shops, Café and Restaurants close, such as Jamie’s Italian Restaurant on the other side of the street.
The Mayfair Boutique Hotel in Adelaide, South Australia, can be reached by Taxi or UBER and of course, by public transport or by the Airport Express Bus, which stops around the corner on Currie Street. From the outside, the historic building is already very noticeable, but it does not stand out too much from the neighbouring houses. The ‘Colonial Mutual Life Building’ was built in the Neo-Romanesque style in the 1930s and was then the tallest building in Adelaide. Nowadays you can experience the view from the 13th floor of Mayfair Hotel Adelaide in the newly opened Hennessy Bar.
My room at the Mayfair Hotel in Adelaide was one of 71 rooms in the size ‘Deluxe King Room’. Since the inner life of the soon 90-year-old building is still preserved, there are differences in the rooms and on the floors. My hotel room had a king size bed, very high but also very comfortable, double glazed windows, a mini bar, a large flatscreen TV with on-demand movies, air conditioning as well as in the bathroom a spacious rain shower, a hair dryer, bathrobe and slippers. More Details on the Room can be found on their website.
The view from my room number 516 was not quite as exhilarating, as hoped. When booking a ‘room with a view’ at Mayfair Hotel Adelaide you may hope for a beautiful view, and not directly on backyards that may need some renovation. Unfortunately, the two rectangular windows were also very small and could not be opened – therefore the air conditioning ran constantly and made accordingly noises 24 hours a day.
Mayfair Hotel is the newest five-star boutique hotel in Adelaide and it sure offers luxury accommodation in the heart of the city. The Location for my very first, 48 hours, stay in Australia could not have been any better, it was close to public transport stops, Rundle Mall for Shopping and various dining options (Burgers at Burger Theory Adelaide). Regarding any questions, the concierge of the house always liked to help. My favourite were the king size beds that support a quick recovery overnight. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any Meal at Mayfair Hotel Adelaide, neither Breakfast, Dinner or Afternoon Tea. As I now know a bit more about Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, I will probably stay at another Hotel during a next visit to the City.
