I have stayed here a few times on business including a stay over a weekend. Each time the hotel has been really good as far as service goes. The rooms could do with some touch ups to fix stains on walls etc, but in general it doesn't feel too tired and is definitely comfortable enough. The restaurant does a decent meal for dinner and the breakfast buffet is ok if included in your rate, but I don't understand how any hotel can charge $25 for breakfast.
The BIG PROBLEM with this hotel is the location. It's right at the start of the Kings Cross/King St/Seedy part of the Adelaide CBD. Next door is a Club X sex shop with peep shows. Down the street are all manner of dodgy bars, crap clubs and strip joints. Over the weekend you will see 18 year olds parading down the street wearing nothing much. A lot of them seem to stay at this hotel on weekends as well doe to the proximity. Chances are you'll have to dodge some vomit around the entrance to the hotel. During the week venturing out the front door means being asked for change or similar.
It's not something the hotel can control unfortunately, more something for the Adelaide council to address. Oh, one thing the hotel can do is address the amount of noise that gets into the rooms at night. Double glazing is definitely in order.
