This Hotel has been here for a long while and the decor is a bit dated with dark paneling in the corridors etc. But the staff are very helpful, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It has a dinning room and serves a good breakfast. It is also surrounded by a large number of restaurants of varying cuisine. A... More

I have stayed many times at the Hotel Old Adelaide (formerly known as The Olde Adelaide Inn) and always made to feel welcome. The reception staff are top notch. The room was large, comfortable and very clean. The only minor complaint I have is that the Snooty Fox Restaurant is looking a little worn. Wonderful location when visiting Adelaide.

We weren't looking for fancy, so didn't really have outrageous expectations. Whilst the hotel was old and dated, as they say you get what you pay for, and as this was a last minute booking, we were happy with our stay. For $120 per night in the City, it turned out better for us than catching a cab back to... More

It's the perfect location, good rooms, helpful staff. Close to cafes, shops, bars and restaurants. Walking distance to St Peter's Cathedral & Adelaide Oval. 30 mins free wi-fi in lobby that requires a code from reception. Restaurant & bar facilities. Old fashioned but the decor suits & beds are comfortable. Stayed 4 nights. No lift for upstairs rooms. You can... More

Staying at the Hotel Old Adelaide is a bit like sleeping at Grandma's house... in a good way. It's old fashioned, really comfortable, homely, but lacking in some basic mod cons - such as WiFi and ducted air-conditioning. I stayed here during a conference at a nearby hospital, and for me it was a refreshing and affordable alternative to the... More

Great location, great rooms, good staff. Would recommend anybody attending Adelaide Oval to stay here just a short walk down the hill. Food was fantastic, the building holds great interest as I grew up looking at the posh place.

Stayed there for the night of 25 October after Rolling Stones concert, pokey old fashioned room overlooking O'Connel St with no double glazing so had difficulty sleeping. Fan in ensuite didn't work. On/off button on TV remote was missing, so the TV didn't work. Shampoo freeby missing. Altogether a very forgettable experience unlike the Stones. Cannot recommend.

The Old Adelaide is an easy walking distance to the center of Adelaide and the Botanical Gardens, the Zoo the Oval entertainment Center and Rundle Street. The Hotel itself, is located in an area that has many culturally diverse restaurants. It is in a super location for any visitor to the city. The hotel itself, is an older but very... More

I have stayed here twice and very much enjoyed my stay both times. Crisp spacious rooms and a beautiful facade. Staff were professional and friendly. However on both occasions I found the parking facilities to be quite pitiful. At 4 and a half stars I would expect a valet service but no real matter. What really got to me was... More

We first stayed here on our wedding night in 1984, so decided to revisit it to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed on the Sunday night of a long weekend where it was explained that it was quiet, which suited us perfectly. We booked a standard room but was upgraded to a suite which contained a living room with... More
