Reviewed 18 February 2014

Stayed here for one night before we got the ferry to Kangaroo Island the next day. Staff were very friendly and helpful and sorted us out with some early breakfast before we left which was much appreciated. Room was a good size, nice and clean. Only negative was that the window wasn't easy to open (I like a bit of fresh air!)

Location was great- just a short walk from Rundle St and all the activity around there.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our first trip to Adelaide. Good location and good value. We stayed on Level 3 and room was a great size and clean. Staff have been very helpful and friendly. Shared kitchen and dinning room space on each floor - IGA just around the corner for supplies or Coles and Woolworths not too far away. Had a great time and would recommend and return here.

I stayed for 2 nights, the room was clean and quite big but not particularly quiet.
The staff at the reception was extremely helpful.
The breakfast was quite bad, not only in terms of limited choice but the breakfast room was full of people and you could hardly find a seat or an empty table and it was difficult even to move in the room....in my view the hotel would be better off just providing tea and coffee and no breakfast.

The location is not great, almost 1 km from the center.

Given the price I would not stay again.

My wife and I have stayed here a number of times when we travel to Adelaide and it's the only place we stay. Rooms great, service fantastic and the location is brilliant. Short walk to town, market, East Terrace, Rundle Street boutiques and some great pubs in the area too. Highly recommend it if you're in Adelaide.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Adabco. The rooms were a good size, nicely decorated and quiet. The hotel itself had bonus amenities such as a shared kitchen area and a laundry, plus a free breakfast and free wifi.
The building is beautiful from the outside and the area had plenty of restaurants nearby, although it is located a bit of a walk from the main shops and attractions in Adelaide.

I go to Adelaide 6 times a yr on business. This has been the best hotel i have stayed in. Service here is with a 'smile' not sure what upset another reviewer on here?
The Hotel is spotless, clean, well maintained, quiet, and you just can't fault the rooms. Yes the windows are a bit grubby but this is not a hotel for room views, if you want that then don't stay here.Receptionist was brilliant. The only thing missing was a Bar. Please put one in after a long days business it's an ideal place to unwind!!! .Head out to a restaurant on Hutt Street where there are plenty of excellent eateries within walking distance. There are a couple of really nice pubs with some great hand crafted ales a bit closer if you just want some good pub fayre.

Room Tip: Grab a 3rd floor room away from the lift

That last reviewer must have been a real number.. I've stayed here twice before and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. Nice old heritage building, free wi-fi, and not far from the 'main' CBD area. Includes free breakfast which isn't anything flash, but its what I would have at home. Will stay again for sure.
