“Almost the perfect stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stayed for one night on the third floor in a balcony room, The accommodation was great and very smart. The staff were very obliging and helpful. The rooftop heated pool was a lovely relaxing diversion with a nice view.
Dinner at the Decant Restaurant was lovely and very enjoyable. Breakfast was a disappointment though. We ordered poached eggs and they came out hard boiled. We returned the eggs and the waitress was happy to fix the issue. We were told that the poached eggs were made up the night before and the cook had left them too long in the water for reheating. We were amazed that they weren't made fresh. Our second serving of poached eggs were nice and runny but very cold. Obviously the cook failed to put the pre-made eggs in long enough this time. If it wasn't for the poached eggs I would have given 5 stars. Don't let it put you off though. Just order fried or scrambled eggs and it should be perfect!

We had a lovely stay at the Clarion Hotel Soho, decor was fantastic, pool was beautiful and relaxing and the staff were delightful and accommodating. Good location, close to great eateries on Hutt Street, and just a short stroll into the CBD. Thank you for having us, we'll definitely stay again.

We had a great stay at the Soho. Yes, the rooms are quite small but it is a New York styled hotel so what do you expect? If you want a big, spacious and boring business-style room, then there are plenty to chose from in Adelaide. But if you want something ultra modern and a little funky, then The Soho is for you.

I don't quite understand the comments about the tiny bathrooms. We stayed in the standard room and our bathroom was almost as large as the rest of the room!

My only negative feedback is regarding the "pool". I'm not quite sure what it is trying to be - a very hot pool or a spa?? And the deck itself is a bit of a wasted space. So much potential!

We will be back.

The Clarion in Adelaide definitely was one of the best experiences on our monthlong trip to Australia. If somebody deserves a Travellers Choice Award this Hotel definitely does.
Friendly staff, clean, stylish rooms, tasteful bathrooms, close to Rundle Street restaurant district and to the city.
The only negative point was the "pool", but judging from the exterior photographs our expectations haven't been high anyway.
No WiFi charges - a total surprise for Australia! Would we come back to Adelaide, no doubt we would stay there again

This hotel does not represent good value for money. The bathroom is the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel room and very difficult to move around in (and I only weigh 56kg). I don't know how a larger person could even comfortably sit on the toilet as it is crammed into a tight alcove. The shower screen doesn't do much and water runs across the floor every time you shower. The bathroom products are of poor quality but at least are brightly coloured. The view from the balcony is pretty ordinary and only one of the fold back glass doors would open as the other one's lock was broken.
The room was advertised to come with slippers- it didn't.
We stayed 2 nights. Room was well cleaned but tea and milk were not re-supplied.
The ironing board was so flimsy that it was very difficult to use but worse than that there was no padding- just fabric ironing board cover over wire.
We paid around $300 per night for a corner room. This hotel would be more comparable to a hotel that costs half of that. Will never return.

Room is ok but a little small. Tiny bathroom. We had a groupon and the spa wasn't working again - I noticed someone said it wasn't working in October. Included breakfast was nice. The spa on top of the roof is lovely but when it is not working it is a little disppointing, especially when you go there for that. I think they need to offer discounts or special deals for when it is not working. Otherwise, I would not recommend going for the spa as it may be out of action.

This is a small boutique hotel situated in a quiet location. It is within easy walking distance of the Rundle Street restaurant district. Probably the only hotel I have been in where you can actually open a window and let fresh air in.
