“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

The rooms are adequate but a little on the small side. Very quiet which may have been due to us facing the courtyard. Roadworks on Hindley Street cause a minor disruption. Not many restaurants close by as most are at the other end of town & Chinatown but it is a nice walk of if one doesn't feel like walking there are free trams and buses 100 yards away.

Dear Murray61

I apologise that the roadworks on Hindley street caused you a minor disruption. I have been advised that they will be completed quite soon. The street is already looking amazing!

It is great to hear that you found Breakfree Adelaide to be very quiet and I'm glad that you found the hotel to be good value for money.

I hope that you choose to stay at Breakfree Adelaide again in the future.

Kind Regards
Amy

The rooms are nice and spacious but unfortunately they have skimped on the building side so you hear a lot of noise. The bed was comfortable but missed out on morning sleep thanks to travellers leaving early and banging doors. This could easily have been avoided by having recessed doors with soft close hinges.
Another negative is that it is on the wrong side of the CBD but if you enjoy walking then not a big deal.

Room Tip: Try to get away from nightclub next door

Dear Pablo266

Thank you for your feedback. Its good to hear that you found the hotel to be of good value.

I hope that you were able to make use of the free tram that is just one street away from Breakfree Adelaide. The tram takes you right into the heart of the CBD and doesn't cost a thing!

I'm glad that you found the rooms to be nice and spacious. And thankyou for your suggestion of soft close hinges

Kind Regards

Amy

We stayed in a studio room and was very impressed having a full kitchen, washing machine and dryer the bed was so comfortable, missed having a bath our room faced the courtyard so we didnt have any street noise, very quiet.
There is a free tram not far in North Tce to take you to Rundle Mall.
The staff were very friendly.
There is a secure car park but you have to pay $15 a night.
I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are quieter

Breakfree on Hindley is now the only place I stay when visiting Adelaide for work or leisure. It's centrally located with a secure carpark which takes the hassles out of driving in the city for me (I live in the country). The customer service is really excellent and is one of the main reasons I keep going back. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the beds are comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel and congratulate the customer service staff on a job well done.

Rooms are small and you coudl hear nosie from teh adjoining rooms and even those above you when those cooupants walked around their room.
The rooms are servcioed daily whiel youb stay there but tehy will do so for $30per day which I find a bit expensive. having said that they provided enough towels for oen person to last 2 days.
Althouigh not the hotels fault there is roadworks going on out the front of the hotel and down the street which means machinery noise starts early.
Also if you have a car roadworks imapcts access as at moment is one way down Hindley St

Room Tip: Ask if roadworks are still occuriing when you enquire about a booking.

Dear Peter S,

Thank you for taking the time to review Breakfree Adelaide on Trip Advisor.

I have been informed that the roadworks should be completed by mid May, after this Hindley street will have a relaxed boulevard feel.

The daily service fee only applies to our "Eco rate" this means that our guests can save money on their accomodation if they dont want the room serviced daily. However, we do also have inclusive rates available where you wont be charged for a daily service.

Kind Regards

Had a two bedroom, roomy apartment. It was clean and had all the facilities including a washing machine and drier. We had a very small balcony that looked over to a brick wall and narrow lane. Some apartments had a larger balcony overlooking the courtyard with table and chairs. There are a lot of apartments there, the first floor is the garage at A$15/night.to leave your car there. So you had to go up in a lift or stairs to actually get to the apartments. You could get washing powder at the reception for $1.There was no room for two large suitcases in the main bedroom. The usual supply of food in the fridge for a cost. Adelaide appears to be on the direct flight path of the aerodrome so you can hear the rumble of planes at 6 in the morning, otherwise noise wasn't too much of a problem but then we weren't there over the weekend. Adelaide has free trams around the inner city. Every tram is free as long as you stick to the inner route. You had to walk a block away to catch the trams. It was a 10min walk to the Rundle mall where there were two food courts and a supermarket. Next door to the apartment was an Indian restaurant which was a byo.

Room Tip: If you are wishing for a balcony with tables and chairs looking over the courtyard you need to ask .
