Perfectly clean and just right for my one night stay, good access to Central market Disappointed that there was an exorbitant charge for wifi, but that seems to be the norm in Australia ...wonder when we will catch up with the rest of the world?

I needed an hotel that was within walking distance of the Adelaide bus station. Director's Studios was the best option, and gave me a very comfortable king size bed, good quality cotton sheets, very good size shower that was immaculately clean. Fairly small basic room, but more than adequate for one person, very quiet, so I got a good night's...

Unserviced appartment was a little cheaper than if serviced, and clean and modern. Lots of light. Appreciated the micorwave and toaster too. $12 a night is a bit of a hit for off-street parking, but it seemed a common price in this city. Easy walk to eating places - notably Pauls Seafood on Gouger- and Rundle Mall. Seemed to carry...

Have just booked an unserviced studio for 5 nights at a great rate($453)but reading the fine print I notice that parking is $12 a day and access to wifi is $25 for 24 hours! Only recently returned from 10weeks in Europe and every hotel,cafe,etc provided free wifi including our 2 tour coaches. I hope that this isn't the norm in...

We enjoyed our stay. The location is central and convenient. The staff were always helpful, we appreciated being lent an umbrella. The room is spacious, and we liked having a bath and shower combination. We found we could walk everywhere we wanted to go.

Booked a quiet night away for myself and my wife at this hotel. Room was average, shower in with the bath was slippery and no hand rails or steps for safety. Excessive noise in the corridors and the floor above due to football revellers. The most annoying thing was the Kareoke Bar next door with a constant crowd out the...

It is located within walking distance of city center and the Adelaide Convention center (20 min) where I had to go attend a conference. This hotel does not provide any breakfast (the only minus I can think of besides the prohibitively expansive wifi), but there was a refrigerator in the room and also some dishes that could be used.

No backup lighting for guests during blackout at night, so guests had to leave doors open to obtain minimal light from exit signs so we could see in our rooms. Workmen started renovations about 7am with the noise from hammers being far too excessive, hence no sleep in after a bad night with no food due to blackout.
