Stayed there during a conference in the Convention Center on the other side of the street. Reception was very friendly and gave me an upgrade to a studio room, since I stayed for 6 nights. I arrived at night, so I did not realize until the next morning that the room was facing towards a pretty dark inner courtyard. So staying therenit is hard to find out wether it is sunny or cloudy. Anyhow - I did not spend much time there anyhow. The room was spaceous and clean. Little kitchenette in the entrance area with a nespresso style machine (and two cups complimentary each day). Bedroom was Separate with extra TV-Set, large and comfortable bed and enough space for clothes and suitcase. Living room has an easy chair with foot bench, little dinig table/desk and a sofa. The style of the whole place is pretty Art Deco and has a cozy athmosphere, but it is quite dark except for bar and restaurant which do get some daylight.
All in all it is for Australia a quite nice hotel, though heftily priced. Payed 230 AUD through the conference. My partners rented a whole house with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms and huge dijing/living room/kitchen for 180 AUD per day.

Stayed recently for a business trip. The hotel is in a great location in the city with restaruants and coffee shops close by and within the Hotel itself. I ordered a King room and when I opened the door I was blown away by the hugeness of the room. It had ample living space, a small kitchenette and a set of beautiful winding stairs to a bedroom loft! Amazing!! Very quiet and a great nights sleep. Fantastic service also.

Room Tip: Book a King room with stairs if you have no children to worry about

Stayed here for the weekend. Could not fault this hotel, from the moment we arrived until we checked out. We stayed in a Loft Apartment, nicely furnished and a wonderfully comfortable bed!! Ate dinner the first night in the restaurant, excellent service and perfectly cooked meals. The second night, we ordered room service. It arrived within 30 min of ordering, beautifully presented on a round table with a black and white table covering, and a candle was lit for us. Again, the meals were cooked to perfection. The only downside was that the view from our window was not overly attractive, unless one finds rusty rooftops mesmerizing :(
Cannot extol the virtues of this establishment enough...stay there when you are in Adelaide!!

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quieter

I found this hotel to have great staff who were very friendly, the hotel itself is well located and the restaurant is well worth a try. The bar is welcoming with some good entertainment on the stage. Younger folks might find other hotels on Hindley Street a little more lively but remember its only sleepy Adelaide. Overall would highly recommend this hotel - also recommend a day trip to Kangaroo Island, long day but well worth it just to see experience the sea lions alone.

Room Tip: Didn't specify and were more than happy.
