“It was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

It was ok, there's no elevator which is kind of annoying lugging a suitcase up a flight of stairs. The concierge was not rude but not warm either. Rooms are old but clean and the bed was comfortable.
I wouldn't recommend the continental breakfast, very average. There are plenty of places on O'Connell St so go grab a bite elsewhere.
Overall it was just ok.

This quiet hotel is located in the main street of North Adelaide and is a short bus trip away from the Adelaide CBD. The surrounding North Adelaide area is quite a nice area to be in, and there are plenty of shops and nightlife(bars) around (for Adelaide).

Requested a wakeup call and got it on time, so points for service. The beds are terrible though as they are too soft, so this may not be good for those who loathe super soft beds.

The decor is a like the name suggests, a tad old, however the rooms are large and clean enough.
Adequate for a short stay.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the main lobby area.

Great hotel in a great location. The decor is very dated but the rooms are clean and the service is good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Value for money this one! We stayed there during the cricket test and were concerned that it may be very noisy on a Saturday night. Our fears were unfounded. There was no noise and we slept like babies.

Stayed 4 days for christmas with family. The hotel was in a perfect location for us on O,connell Street being close to the city and many wonderfull eating places close by. The service and friendliness of the staff was excellent.The only down side was a hard bed and really bad tv reception.

Very happy with the service and friendliness of staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Old Adelaide". The room was excellent (despite the bathroom fan and bedside lamp not working), the buffet breakfast excellent as was the service at the front desk. Thanks so much!!!
