“Early flight accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

Had an early flight from Adelaide to Sydney and didn't want to have to leave home in the Barossa at 4:30am to get to the airport so decided to stay in the City. Good location - easy drive to the airport, within walking distance to great restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable and had a neat little kitchen area which would have been ideal had we been staying longer. We'll definitely be back when we need to stay in the city overnight.

Great location too, especially seeing it was New Years Eve. It's central to restaurants and clubs too. The price was brilliant for a spacious & clean room. The staff at reception were awesome too. I left my phone charger at home, and we asked whether by any chance they had one to borrow, and yes they did.
I was impressed overall!
Thanks heaps Break Free Directors Studio, we'll be back for sure!

Returned to Director's Studio once again. Although we have stayed in many of Adelaide's Hotels, it seems we now keep returning to the Director's Studio. These clean and quiet rooms are usually about half the price of other hotels. They are within walking distance to Victoria Square, Gouger Street dining and the Central market.
The glass in the shower needs attention (it's not broken or cracked) and the receptionist told me they were aware of this and it is to be rectified shortly.

The hotel is well located. Restaurants are in the surroundings. Most "attractions" in walking distance. For the "lazies", you can also take the tram to the city centre. The rooms have a good size and are clean. The bathroom had also a good size and a big walk-in-shower.

We stayed here for one night and that was enough.
The room was depressing and dirty. There was thick dust on the shelves in the kitchenette and there was a prominent brown stain in the front of one of the chairs. The walls are thin. We could hear some very strange noises coming from neighbouring rooms. One sounded like someone was running a catering business.
Location wise, it is a quite a long walk from the restaurants and if you do not like asian cuisine, then there is little choice available locally.
On the positive side, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The place is also comparatively cheap.

This hotel was ok. It was pretty clean, though the toilet was stained. It wasn't in an area I felt safe walking around at night as a single female. It was pretty far from Adelaide as far as walking is concerned. As I had a sprained ankle, this posed a problem. The hotel was very close to Chinatown and the Central Market.

So there is no restaurant - but is a short 10 minute walk on the same street to the all the Gouger Street restaurants and the famous market. Upgraded my room which had a small kitchenette, a decent size and a good TV/reception.
Staff were friendly. Used a groupon voucher with no problem. Will stay again if price about $110 per night..
Pub next door is good woth 4-6pm happy hour - $5 pints - good selection.

Room Tip: There is a nightclub next door. Heard nothing on Fri/Sat nights from room 204.
