We stayed this weekend. We arrived early and the staff were very professional, polite and fantastic to deal with. They accommodated us and after being on the train our room was like a palace. In truth, the room was basic but it had everything we needed. The water pressure was sensational. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. A great retreat and very centrally located. I would highly recommend this venue.

This hotel was great value for money, we booked a week before and still only paid $140 for a one bedroom apartment on NYE.

Staff were very gracious and the security guards were pleasant enough. From what I overheard at checkout the staff are more than able to assist travellers with sightseeing and recommendations.

Our room on the 1st floor over looked Hindley street and was noisy as would be expected on NYE I'm not sure how noisy it would be any other day of the year.

The room was modern, clean and very spacious. Great pillows and excellent water pressure.

On request we were also allowed an extra 30 minutes to checkout.

Dear Ashes856,
Thank you for taking the time to review your NYE stay with us, it is indeed a very busy night for Adelaide hotels.
A recent sustainability initiative at the property saw installation of 'water saving devices' to all our showers, this is estimated to save well in excess of 2 million litres of Murray River water per annum, therefore it's pleasing the shower pressure was found to be excellent.
I am also pleased to read our staff were gracious and the rooms modern, clean and spacious.
Regards

We stayed for a week over the Christmas period and had booked a twin-bedded 1 bedroom apartment. We were given a 2 bedroom apartment and this certainly added to our comfort and made us very appreciative.

Our compact 2 br apartment was on the side facing Adelaide's night entertainment street, Hindley Street. As it was Christmas, we did not have any problems with noise from the street or from the nearby venues.

The apartment contained a mini kitchen area with microwave, toaster, fridge, crockery and cutlery. The fridge had mini-bar supplies but there was plenty of room for our own supermarket purchased supplies.

The bathroom contained a washing machine and a dryer. The washing machine didn't work properly much of the time but this was a minor annoyance (we had to keep restarting it - I think we just got a dud machine). The bathroom had a shower with water pressure so strong it felt like you were being blasted with rocks - we absolutely loved it. 5 or 10 minutes in the shower and you felt totally awake and ready to face the day.

They now have LCD TVs and micro-hifi units in the apartments. A DVD player can be rented from reception for $10 per night if required. The apartment had 2 airconditioners - one in the main living area and one in the primary bedroom. Both functioned well and kept us cool throughout the hot Adelaide Christmas week.

There are vending machines in the carpark on the ground floor if you need a snack or a soft drink.

Reception staff were friendly and engaging. We chose the eco-rate to save some money - your room is not serviced every day but you can have fresh towels and soap if you require. This worked out well for us as we had our stuff everywhere and didn't want it being disturbed.

The location is terrific - the free city loop bus 99C stops right outside the Breakfree and we made much use of it. 1 street away is where you can catch the Jetbus service to the airport and the tram service is also only a street away.

Some people complain about the noise from Hindley Street - mainly Friday and Saturday nights - but you can ask for an apartment away from the front of the building if this bothers you. You need to keep in mind the price being charged, the facilities being offered before being precious about a bit of street noise. There are plenty of other more expensive places to stay that may be quieter - you just have to open your wallet a lot more! For us, we liked the combination of the price, the standard of the accommodation and the location.

Overall it was a pleasant and comfortable stay. Being able to make your own breakfast, do your own washing and keep your own food supplies is an absolute luxury when you're staying somewhere for more than a couple of days.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you're sensitive to noise then ask for a room that is located away from Hindley Street

Our hearts sank as we drove up Hindley street and saw the locale was very "mean streets". The apartment was small and smelt mouldy/unclean. The beds were small and uncomfortable. The surrounding streets were noisy till late with drunken revellers, there was even a fight during the night. To block out the noise from the street we shut the windows, but then had to turn on the airconditioning to get some air in the rooms - they were old and noisy. We barely slept. In the morning we reaslised that the huge complex we were next to was the Adelaide Remand centre! We only stayed one night, and checked out as soon as we could find another place to stay. PS We had not originally chosen this hotel - the last minute and unaviodable unavailability of our booked accomodation meant we were re-directed to the Breakfree by an agency.
