The Adabco is a lovely hotel located in the heart of Adelaide. The staff were really helpful during check in, organising a room change for us so we could check in earlier without us even asking. The room was clean with comfortable bed and great pillows. A large well equipped kitchen is located on the second floor for guests use,... More

Description of hotel describes it as an old classic hotel but this is not the case apart from the red carpet in the halls. Helpful front desk staff, The rooms were fully renovated but there were problems with the air conditioner being very loud. Great location in the city though. Good self contained kitchen facilities.

We loved staying here! It was clean, comfortable and classy. The breakfast was outstanding! Everything you could want in a continental breakfast - beautifully presented. Loved everything about our stay. Great location just away from the main CBD so it was nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again. Staff were helpful. Love, love, love this hotel! Recommend wholeheartedly. Probably... More

We stayed here for the weekend. The hotel rooms were a good size but the bed was a standard double (potentially looked smaller) they could easily have fitted a larger bed. There were the basic facilities - kettle, fridge etc. But nothing too special. The hotel is in a reasonable area and a short walk from Rundle street. There is... More

At the check-in counter for our flight in Japan, we were shocked to discover that our connecting flight from Singapore to Adelaide was cancelled. In a panic, we tried to call the... More
