4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A great central location for exploring Adelaide and a lovely comfortable room at a great price to come home to at night. The communal kitchens on every floor are a bonus if you're catering for a family. The free wifi was fast and reliable. Will definitely return.

The Adabco is at a great location - just on the edge of the CBD and easy to get to. If driving, the best approach is to go down Hutt St, turn left into Wakefield St & it is on the left just before the next intersection. If you are arriving at night, the hotel is difficult to locate initially,... More

We have stayed at Adabco for up to five days while having some out -of- hospital medical procedures on two different occasions. It is within walking distance of Rundle Mall and Street, great for movies, eating out and only a couple of minutes walk from Hutt Street which has lots of eateries, shopping etc. The best part is the beautifully...

The old stone frontage makes this hotel appear quite glamorous. However the price per night indicates it is not up with the pricey boutique hotel crowd. In essence it's just really good value. The check-in was easy, rooms quite spacious and nicely decorated, bed was very comfy and there were good amenities. You don't get a great view from the... More

This was a great place for a quick stopover - close to city and short trip to the airport Staff were very helpful and friendly It was super cheap on booking.com and great value for money My only complaint was that I couldn't find the hairdryer - it was finally found in the safe - obviously very precious !

We stayed in a superior room for two nights with breakfast included. The room was spacious, nicely furnished and immaculately clean. Staff were friendly and the guest kitchen was a great idea for those wishing to self cater. The breakfast was adequate with a reasonable variety of cereals, different breads to toast, fruit, yogurt, juices and a small selection of... More

An excellent place to stay. The only reason I didn't score as excellent is that the location is a little further out of the CBD than I'd like -- a small point. Room was very large, but furniture a little dated. Also, room Windows need washing! However, the lounge rooms downstairs were spacious an lovely, with leather armchairs. Kitchen large... More

Huge room with a King Bed, LCD TV with HDMI input, free wifi, mini fridge, air con and comfy setting. Location is away from restaurants on the eastern side of the city but it's only a short walk up the street to the centre of the city providing easy access to offices and plenty of food and shopping.
