This was our 5th visit to Adabco and once again we were not disappointed. This place is really really beautiful, is an easy 10 minute stroll to Rundle Mall, lovely and clean, comfortable, so so affordable, has very friendly and obliging staff, provides a super continental breakfast, and is arguably the value hotel in Adelaide. This visit we had a...

Upon my arrival I was greeted by Victoria. She was friendly, welcoming and provided me with knowledge to get me orientated to Adelaide. Throughout my stay, all hotel staff were friendly.

Stayed for a three night city break in June 2015. Whilst self-allocated "four star" and "boutique" ratings are stretching it a bit, this is a comfortable and excellent value option on the edge of the city centre. Only minor complaints were the rather limited breakfast hours (7 - 9am on weekdays, including a public holiday) and a strange, persistent noise...

Highlights: Good location, onsite laundry room (expensive) Low point: Very crowded with loud, rude group tours Easy to find on foot, located in easy walking distance to Victoria Square, Adelaide Central Market, and Rundle Mall the Adabco has surprisingly large rooms for the price. Not saying the rates are 'backpacker-friendly' but I was pleasantly...

Booked this one with slight trepidation given some of more negative reviews on here, but couldn't have been more pleased. At 110 per night including breakfast the hotel is firstly very good value for money. Whilst the selection at breakfast was obviously not enormous, it was perfectly adequate unless you insist on cooked breakfasts. The hotel room was a good...

The Adabco Boutique Hotel is an excellent choice when staying in Adelaide. Easy but longish walk to the free tram and to the shopping mall. The room was spacious with excellent facilities.
