Booked for a night before The Ghan train largely on the basis of a map, not having been to Adelaide before. The room was decent and if that's what you want, the Hindley will not disappoint. However, I always look for internet access, and noted this featured on Booking.com. What they don't tell you is that this is 100MB at 256kbps, for two devices. That was enough for two podcasts, and it was used up in ten minutes I did feel cheated - this is tacky and really out of date in 2014. If internet access is important, factor in that you will need to pay for it, and I greatly dislike that the hotel made this a selling point when in fact it offers a crippled version. (Adelaide does have a free network though so you may not need it.) It's not just internet access - a hotel prepared to play fast and loose with marketing isn't one I'd expect to help in case of a travel emergency. In addition, it turns out Hindley is where Adelaide's nightclubs and many strip bars are. There was noise in my room though I wasn't bothered by it but if you are a light sleeper you may be as I could hear nightclub noise and was on a high floor. All told, it was fine and I have nothing in Adelaide to compare it with, but if I go again I'll stay elsewhere.
