“Happy 60th Warren.”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

To cities come together for the 60th birthday of my brother. Perth and Auckland meet at the BreakFree on Gouger for the big 60, six days in Adelaide was a great idea. We had rooms 312 and 311. Rooms had all that we needed. They had tea making facilities, microwave, mini bar if needed and the bed was so comfortable and quite. They were clean and fresh, serviced daily. We found the staff very happy and helpful. The local pub was a hop skip and a jumps. Manager, Tess and staff were very helpful with directions and on places to visit. We ate there twice Thai food to die for. Musimume Curry simple the best. We found our location to be central to everything and can not speck more higly of our stay. Well done everyone.

Room was adequate for 2 travelling adults but the room we were in 404 had no microwave. It was clean but my only concern was the slippery shower floor tiles. I actually slipped, luckily I got hold of the shower partition, otherwise it would have been disaster. I strongly suggest, management change the floor tiles.

Great location being a short walk to the Central Markets,and Victoria square, form which you have access to public transport to everywhere else! Walking is easy in Adelaide, we even made it to the river front for New years eve and Rundell Mall on foot without too much effort. Great little pub next door.
Room was adequate. 2 adults and a 9 y.o for 4 days,and we didn't feel cramped. was well equipped, if a little tired . Sadly, smelly drains/ damp smell in our room, had to keep bathroom fan on to stop smell getting into the main room. Unless you're a fan of All-night Karaoke, request a room on the quiet side/ floors of the building on weekends.

Room Tip: Request a room on the top floor, east side, to get away from All-night karaoke,and footsteps from th...

We stayed 3 nights prior to Xmas - no car - so was a little disappointed it was a bit of a walk - maybe 100 meters too far for comfort. However with a trendy pub next door with a good Thai cuisine and all that Gouger Street has to offer we soon become accustomed to the walk. We ate breakfast at the markets each morning then caught the free city tram to our point of interest.

The hotel itself has a sparse but functional reception. Rooms are large - ours had QS and a single bed, a sink, microwave - kitchenette. Yet the furnishings are basic. The TV sits on a low coffee table so watching it from the bed wasn't comfortable.

The bathroom has shower, toilet and basin but no storage area for toiletries. Everything is clean.

I would say that the facilities offered are at best 3 star and best suited for those with transport. So if you get a good deal on price then nothing at all wrong with the Breakfree.

Studio Room ($144) was on the smaller side in this older building. However, its great value with a kitchenette, mini bar and comfortable QB. Continental b/fast pack $10 in room too (just bring fresh milk for cereal unless you like long life stuff). Work desk is small too and internet costs $$. Room had 2 single seaters to watch TV. No restaurant on-site but plenty to choose from closeby. Gaucho's is the pick for steak. Bathroom was bit small with the shower in the bath. Staff were very helpful at check in. Features low cost ($10) car parking too.

Room Tip: Studio's are probably the better option for business travellers.

I got a good deal for this when they offer free night for a minimum of 2 nights. It has good location being close to lots of restaurants and of course the Market. I requested for a quiet room as my hubby is recovering from illness and this was duly noted. I am amazed at the little things they provide for free like free use of internet in the lobby when I just need to check my email once in a while. The studio offers basic kitchenette stuff that prove useful for reheating stuff and toaster. I am surprised to actually enjoy the hotel coffee and tea (Aurora brands) which I never did.Hope they continue that supplier.Room is serviced daily though a bit careless at times with towel replenishment (luckily you can easily ask for this from reception) and details in the tub(hair was stucked at the wall not mine for days till I got sick and just remove it myself) at times. Receptionists are nice and attentive. Parking is not free though.The lift is a bit slow though ok since it does not have far up to go.Overall it is a good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room if needed. Beware of thin doors as I happen to hear some bedroom talks when I pas...

Reception staff friendly and helpful. Our room was located in the main building on the 3rd floor away from the road and was very quiet with a nice outlook. Studio unit spacious and clean but furnishings a bit tired. Very small bench area but adequate for preparation of snacks and light meals. Access to the laundry was a bit of a mission - down the alley way and up the stairs, and then only one machine and drier for the whole complex so timing was everything with a bit of walking back and forth.Good location close to town and plenty of great restaurants within easy walking distance.
