Great location, clean large rooms. If it wasnt raining the whole time I would have utilised the pool for sure. Good price, friendly staff, no issues. Would stay again. Loved adelaide. Did not get to eat in the resraurant but it looked cool and mysterious.

I have to say the only thing this place had going for it was the comfortable bed. I have to Travel to Adelaide on a frequent basis and have stayed in a large number of hotels, this has been the worst by far. I do not know how they can call themselves 4 and a half star as it is... More

Hotel Old Adelaide is old, no point in denying this. However if you need to be in this part of Adelaide, you could be worse off. Checking in was easy, with friendly prompt attention from the gent at reception. The rooms are clean with all the basics in place. The work desk was "minimalistic" with not much space available for... More

I have staying here on most visits to Adelaide. In resent times the hotel has been looking a bit tired. However on this visit they are upgrading the rooms. The rooms have never been untidy but they are now an improvement. Location for this hotel is good with many local restaurants within walking distance.

Booked this hotel because it is close to the CBD and has "free parking available"... yeah... if you're happy to park on the street and walk half a km back to the hotel. Rooms were comfortable... and have been since they were refurbished in 1964. 4 and a half star rating is generous at best and an outright lie at... More

We booked on wotif on the basis of free internet. The "free" internet was only available in the lobby and only for 30 minutes per day on one device if you asked for an access code. The room had good facilities and was very comfortable but was a bit old and tired looking. There was no fan in the bathroom... More

Have stayed here on several occasions over the last couple of years. Not our first choice of hotel. Rooms are dated and the furniture well worn but reasonably clean. Service is lack lustre. Nevertheless quite reasonable value and right in the restaurant strip on O'Connell Rd. Free off road parking is available on site, but it's first come first served,... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights during the India – Pakistan cricket match recently. The hotel is nothing much to write home about. It calls itself a bed and breakfast place but doesn’t have a free breakfast !! But at least they offered my 3-year old daughter a free glass of milk. And that’s just about the only nice... More

The only reason we stayed was because we had to cancel our hotel at a different location. For the price, you cannot complain. The hotel looks quite beautiful from the outside and is located in a good area. I am not sure how this hotel was rated as 4 star hotel. It is not worthy of a 2 star hotel.... More
