This hotel was in a nice central place and the closest accommodation I could find to where all the stadiums are (most people must have to walk to the stadiums and entertainment centres in Adelaide!) This was a really nice large room, central to lots of restaurants and food places (literally within a block) The room is quiet apart from... More

great price, clean room, fluffy towels, lovely bed and the best breakfast we've had in ages. Most hotels put out a buffet breakfast where the eggs go soggy, the bacon is like leather and you have to cook your own toast. Here it's all freshly cooked and delivered to your table. they also gave us a free upgrade. Will definitely... More

We booked a room for a Friday night at late notice. The room (207) was $108, so for a hotel in north Adelaide with transport & food choices in abundance, it was an excellent deal. The room was basic 3 star, but was clean with a great bed & pillows. It was first floor - no lift, so be prepared... More

Stayed in a family room towards the back of the hotel for two nights. Comfortable room - warm and quiet. Great hot showers and soft towels. Good hairdryer, iron, TV, etc. The best thing about this hotel is the location on O'Connell Street. The 24 hour Bakery on O'Connell moved nearby this year - very handy for breakfast and snacks....

The Adelaide Inn is located in North Adelaide along the restaurant and shopping strip. It's a decent walk into the city but there's plenty of buses and taxis. The rooms are a good size, yes they are a little tired, but for $100 a night who's complaining? The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. There's a lovely bar... More

Convenient location. Very clean. Not luxurious but we found it quite okay for one night. It was fairly quiet. I guess it was more like an upmarket motel than a hotel. Plenty of places close by to eat. Would consider staying again at right price.
