Charming and historic hotel with the feel of a scaled-down stately home inside. Very spacious rooms with plenty of storage space, especially drawers which we found to be something of an exception in most Australian hotels! If you want even partial views of the city you'll need to get an even-numbered room as most overlook other adjacent buildings unless you... More

Booked in to coincide with dinner and then a show at the Arts Theatre. Very handy, central location, clean and comfortable. Only had a double bed which was a bit restricting given my height but still managed a good night's sleep. Breakfast in the morning was included in the price and would certainly class it as a substantial continental breakfast.... More

My one-night stay at the hotel was a bad mistake.Altho I booked this hotel from good reviews about cleanliness. location and value, we should also try to rate it according to honesty of their staff. The night my daughter and I checked in at this hotel on June 20th 2014, I took off my earrings and ring before I went... More

We check out Tripadvisor all the time and were so pleased to find Adabco Boutique Hotel with such good recommendations. We stayed for four nights during the week in a spacious room on the 3rd floor. Check in was quick, efficient and friendly. Being a small hotel there is an immediate warm atmosphere. The hotel is located not far from... More

Pretty decent central location. Parking in business hours a little tricky. Spacious, clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Good, free wifi. Includes breakfast! Breakfast set-up a little unusual. Laundry facilities too. Good value for money for Central Adelaide.

I came across this establishment online as I was booking my flight from Melbourne. The location is in Adelaide's CBD, just a few blocks from Rundle Street Mall, adjacent shopping venues and most bus services in Grenfell Street, including one to and from the airport. Ideal! The hotel is fronted by a heritage building that reminds one of a Moorish... More
