“Much better on the inside the on the outside”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

My wife and I stayed here in October of 2011. We arrived after dark and were a little afraid because the neighborhood is a little dark. We were quite pleasantly surprised. The rooms, though a little small, are clean and comfy. The ladies working the desk are friendly and very helpful. They even went out of there way to find us a bus to the Barossa Valley.

Just a long block away is a very trendy area with many good restaurants.

If you aren't looking for luxurious 5 star accommodations but are looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, clean hotel, this should be your choice in Adelaide.

A great location. Within comfortable walking distance to the fabulous market, restaurants and Rundle Mall. Our room was comfortable with everything you needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Staff were very helpful. You would be hard pushed to find better value for money. Would stay again when we come back to Australia.

This hotel is just near the city center and have no breakfast. Hot water and 15$ breakfast package. free TV, and window in the corridor.Very warm and homelike. sweet memory. We ask for a standard double room, and they gave us a single bed plus the double bed.

Room Tip: free parking

This place was cheap, but cheap in every sense. The rooms are out dated, the staff were out dated and the location was terrible. We spent 2 nights here and would never stay here again. Should have read the reviews and not tried to save a few $$. There are much better located places with better rooms down town so pick somewhere else...

Reviewed 23 October 2011

Clean basic room with adequate facilities, rooms are inside a building that does not have windows to the outside therefore dark and stuffy. The hotel, if that is what it can be classed as is more like a dormitory.

We were close to the front entrance and the many coming and goings during the night, front door slamming kept us up most of the night. The walls are paper thin which meant we heard every word from the next door neighbors. There was a very vocal woman who sounded like she was having the ride of her life, multiple times I might add also kept us from sleeping. I was about to tell them to shut the hell up when someone bet me to it.

Made a complaint in the morning and requested we be moved. We were shifted to the studio apartments, where they were going to charge an extra $10 per night as these rooms have a kitchenette. The windows open slightly but are frosted so there is no view although the room doesn’t have had one anyway.

Close to central food markets and China Town but a good 15 minute walk for shopping to the Rundall Street Mall, so walking shoes needed.

If you hire a car there is a $10 per night parking fee. Parking is available on the street after 6pm free of charge.

Room Tip: Definiately chose the studio appartments or go somewhere else

I have stayed with break free at many locations but in adelaide usually stay at hindley where I have always had no complaint except the noise from the street. Not planing my trip this time I left it to the last minute to book and my partner booked it over the iphone in the car . I was at first disapointed at not being able to get in my favourite hotel but know think it doesnt matter where I stay as long as its with breakfree. Thankyou for a comfortable stay
