    Enjoyed our stay”

    We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The room was clean and beds comfy. It was within walking distance to all the sights in central Adelaide. Having the microwave, fridge, crockery, cutlery, kettle, toaster and iron was fantastic and made our stay so much more comfortable than in the average hotel room. Although an older style room the facilities more than compensated. A large supermarket and Chinatown are about 5 minutes walk away. The staff were helpful and friendly. Wifi was pricey and it suited me not to purchase it - it was great to have the choice than auto paying for it in a higher hotel rate. Hungry Jacks is just around the corner and McDonalds a bit further down the road. I would definitely consider this on my next visit to Adelaide. A very very pleasant stay.

    I have bee to Adelaide over 20 times in the last 15 years and have stayed at this property on most of the visits. Why? its location on Gouger St .....which has so many restaurants and cafes and the Central Markets open on Tues Thurs Fri and Saturday. The staff are welcoming and attentive and the standard of housekeeping is A+

    Location, price and convenient

    I only stayed for one night. Good location on Gouger Street away from the busy Chinatown end. For those who like Asian food then there are heaps of restaurants nearby. Reception was nice and friendly. Booked my cab to the airport when I checked out. The room I got was small but very cosy. I would stay at this hotel again.

    Great deal, very cheap.”

    The hotel is located near China Town (not far to walk) where there are numerous of restaurant serving different types of food. There is a pub which is handy.
    Nothing to mention as we stayed on the ground floor so we could get outside to smoke easily. There is no elevator so the rooms on the second floor might be a pain for us.

    Had a lovely stay at Breakfree. The room was big enough for us to walk around without bumping into each other. It had what we needed, clean and comfy. It is very good for the price especially for budget travellers. It is very easy to find. We got a shuttle bus from the airport straight to the hotel and it took only 15 mins and 45 mins on the way back as it picked up at this hotel before the others. Good location for us as we like walking after dinner or lunch. 20 mins walk to Rundle Mall but it was good as we could see the city and sights. The staff are helpful. Tea, coffee, ironing boarding which came in handy. The only negative point might be the wall was thin as sometimes we could hear door slamming and people showering but not really a problem for us as at the end of the day after a long walk we would be far asleep.

    Ok for a basic stay in the city. Not in the most lively part of town but 10-15 mins walk away. Room a bit stuffy & dark, could not open windows & these were opaque. The price was right but room unserviced except on 1 occasion. No breakfast. Staff were v helpful overall, cannot fault.

    Pocket Friendly but with tradeoffs”

    This is a small but functional hotel located about 10mins walk away from Chinatown. Hotel rooms are housed in a separate building from reception. While staff are generally pleasant and polite, the hotel does need to ensure information on hotel booking sites are accurate and truly representative. I was offered complimentary late checkout when I made my booking and this was not honoured upon arrival. All that was offered was an 11am checkout instead of 10am and this is something that most hotels offer with no extra charges. There was also no mention on the booking that it was for an eco-room with no housekeeping for the entire duration of the stay unless you paid for it. If you needed fresh towels or more toiletries, there was a cost for that too. My advice to the hotel: review your policies and price point. No point keeping offerings at such a basic level for a low rate especially if its going to upset customers. Rather bump the room rate up alittle and include things like wifi.

    Descent budget hotel in city centre ”

    We stayed here for two nights. The pros were that the room was a good size, the bed comfortable and the room was quiet. The cons were that the front desk lady who worked the evening shift was not polite or friendly, and the the wash that we did using the hotels machine and detergent didn't even clean our clothes. The hotel was fine, they just have to address those issues.

    Close to City”

    Had a few problems with our 1st check in room. The shower enclosure could not close. The whole bathroom would be wet during our shower. The staff on duty was kind enough to move us to another room. Location is good as it is at the fringe of the CBD area and Chinatown. A 10min walk to Chinatown & 15min walk to Central Market. Buses within the CBD was free. We took it to visit the northern part of the city eg. University of Adelaide and the Zoo & Botanical gardens. Also quite close to the airport ie. a 30min local bus ride.

    BreakFree”

    I stayed at the Breakfree and upgraded on first day to a Studio apartment with queen and single bed, this was very cheap. Only things I found lacking was free WiFi which is very common these days in any Hotel / Motel you go to. There are no facilities such as restaurant, the food shop next door is unreliable in timings so breakfast was at the Adelaide Markets approximately 10 minutes up the road.

    Close to City but in middle of Renovations. Carpet and paint everywhere. The smell of fresh paint and tradesmen laying carpet were disappointing. Room had a window but only onto an internal area so it made it a little claustrophobic

    Good value in Adelaide ”

    Location is ok for me as I like walking. The Market and Chinatown are nearby. Rooms are comfortable and clean. I wish some guests would talk quietly in hallways when they return late at night and close their doors more gently but that is a problem in most hotels. I will stay here again next time if the price remains reasonable and good value as it is now.

    We enjoyed our one night stay as we were attending a performance at The Festival Theatre. After checking into a spacious and clean studio room we went for a walk to the Central Market. We only had a short drive into O'Connell St for dinner before the concert. Although there were several good restaurants that we could have walked to in Gouger St. We would definitely stay again.

    Close to restaurants, clean, price.

    Our stay was fine. We were able to find where the reception for the accommodation was (not in the same building), they were friendly and helpful. The room was neat and clean, although not having an external window was a little off-putting to start with. At the end of the day, all we wanted was somewhere that was reasonably priced, bed was comfortable and a clean bathroom, as we were going to a show at the Entertainment Centre. We got all of that, so we were happy.
