Quiet Home from Home

Posted Jul 6, 2014
We booked this hotel for price as we live in Adelaide and just wanted a one night stay to attend a party in the city. We were not expecting much but we were more than pleasantly surprised . Charming decor ,delightful lounge area ,spotless room and a large and well appointed kitchen on each floor(we had a glass of wine and a snack there before the party)It's nice to have a place other than your room to eat and relax. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Adelaide for a few days.

A big "thumbs up" for the Adelaide Adabco

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: Adabco seemed to have everything: very generous sized rooms; a large kitchen/dining area for guest use; a well-appointed launderette; free internet...
Cons: When talking about how good this place was my GF said "except for the paintings" which I think how deep you need to dig to find even a minor gripe!
Location: Around the corner was Hutt Street with numerous restaurants of all kinds. Not too far away was the main part of the city with museums, galleries etc.
Staff were friendly and efficient at check-in and even volunteered change for the in-house launderette. The people running the place had thought of everything to make a traveller feel at home and make things easy even down to the simple but more than adequate breakfast arrangements. We visited for nearly a week and found the Adabco to be easily the best of the four places we stayed in while visiting Australia with the only place coming close to it costing a lot more. We'd definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending the place to others.

Posted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: The rooms were tasteful and spacious
Cons: Would've loved to luxuriate in a hot tub (as there is no pool)!
Location: Very close to Hutt St (trendy cafes etc),also close to Central Market and the CBD.
We really enjoyed our stay and thought the staff were very efficient

We had a nice time at Adabco.

Posted May 9, 2014
Great little hotel and all the staff were excellent and very helpful. It was five minutes walk from the free city loop bus and 5-10 minutes to cafes and restaurants etc. The breakfast was plentiful and there is a IGA in Hutt Street if you want to pick up some yoghurt to have as well. We would stay here again.

Decent Hotel, Off street parking $3/hr

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Facilities
Not a 4 star, lacked few facilities. But overall its good hotel in city, close to everything (North terrace, cafes). 15-20 drive from Airport. Towels were nor changed, we had to get it from reception. Iron & Ironing board not adequate !! Decent hotel for 1-2 days stay.....when I heard rave reviews on Expedia & Tripadvisor...expected something 4 star service but its 3 star standards. Continental breakfast is ok. Sky sports & other channels provided for free. Sunday parking is free offstreet & rest $3/h (free after 6pm)...ample of off street parking if you have hire car.

Good value, great location

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: Location, quietness, nice heritage building.
Cons: Rooms could be cleaned better. Breakfast choices need to be brought up to even budget hotel standards. Hire staff who do not resent having a job.
Location: Within easy walking distance of Central Market, Chinatown, business district, trams, Festival Centre, art gallery, museum, trains - everything!
The hotel is a charming heritage building in a quiet but centrally located part of the city square mile, and we got a great room deal. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, although the bathroom is poorly designed. It was difficult to get in and out of the shower cubicle, and the water flowed under the cubicle door and wet the bathmat. We were in a quiet room, but with a noisy fridge, which bumped and clicked all night. Thank heavens for earplugs! We opted not to have our towels washed daily by hanging them up, but did expect the bathroom to be cleaned well. The sink and taps appeared not to have been touched when the room was made up - the whole exercise of making up the room seemed very perfunctory. Staff in general were not very friendly, apart from those at Reception, who were pleasant and helpful, especially when we left an item behind and had to have it returned to us. The dining room staff member was very unpleasant, and although breakfast was included in the tariff, after our first morning we had breakfast elsewhere. The seating at breakfast was at tables of 6, requiring couples to double up. The alternative was to sit at tables that had not been cleared properly - the surly staff member did not clear the tables, and when she was in the dining room at all, she flounced about in a manner that made all the guests get out of her way quickly. The food offered minimal choice and was of the most basic kind - all of it added up to an unpleasant breakfast experience.
