Prós: location---beautiful historic North Adelaide region with wonderful restaurants, nice parks, and historic buildings.
Contras: They renovated it replacing the beautiful native plants with the alien plants. No birds visit now. It has a sterile plastic feel to it. They replaced the kitchenettes with a limited range of appliances--no toaster. The art is in poor taste.

Com localização ideal em frente ao Centro de convenções de Adelaide, Adelaide Casino e Adelaide Oval e a curta distância a pé da zona empresarial central.
Prós: Excellent knowledgeable and helpful staff, great location in the heart of the CBD, very convenient amenities (kitchen, game room, internet in lobby). Much quieter than expected, and saw numerous families (with young-adult kids, no small ones) there similar to ours. Dated and worn facilities but very clean and well maintained. Reminded me nostalgically of my college days. Great deal for the price, and would definitely stay here again and will recommend to others. The self-cook breakfast deals at the front desk are a big help to travelers on a budget.
Contras: Aircon was a bit challenged by hot days, but still was adequate. The family room had the potential to be a bit tight for 4 adults (including 3 women) with a week's worth of gear, but everyone kept their kit consolidated and we made it thru just fine.
Situado no centro da zona empresarial, os 311 quartos do hotel incluem a mais recente tecnologia de televisão da Samsung e vista para Adelaide Hills. O restaurante e o bar terminam com varandas que se projetam sobre Grenfell Street e partilham o andar com o restaurante e salas de conferências. O ginásio possui equipamento Technogym e existe WIFI em todo o hotel. O ibis Adelaide fica junto a Rundle Mall e o Adelaide Oval, o Casino e o centro de convenções ficam a poucos minutos a pé.
Prós: Good location, but busy street. Laundromat directly across the street. (You could wash and air dry at hotel for cheaper, but it was good to have laudromat close by.) Pleasant staff. Beds were fairly comfortable.
Contras: No elevator! We had to carry all our bags upstairs. Wifi was SLOW, even with multiple options to connect, they were all slow due to volume of people accessing them. Typical motel - close rooms, heard the child crying next door. No bathtub, shower only.
Prós: Easy to get to with reasonable good parking over the weekend.
Great valve for money and very helpful staff
Contras: More attention to minor maintenance eg lights, towel rails and telephone
Prós: Professional, helpful, and friendly first-rate front desk staff, 24-7. Nice restaurant downstairs, and good local café down the street for brekky. Also, a German Club across street has a good menu. We booked a clean and roomy studio unit, nice view. Hotel has a GREAT LOCATION downtown, an easy 10-min walk to Rundle Mall and 15-min walk to botanic gardens and the new Nat'l Wine Center. Rooftop pool is tiny but has a dynamite city view. Have no facilities catering to children, but that's fine for us.
Contras: Parking is a challenge - a parking garage a block away has weekend $7 flat-rate, but weekday parking on and off-street is dear$$. Has no on-site health club, however they have a relationship with a fitness center across the street for $10 per visit. The internet is free, although sometimes a bit spotty. But these things are typical of Aus cities and we were able to work around all of those. Only negative issue we had was our room wasn't cleaned 1 day of our 3-day stay, which is the only reason we didn't give it an "excellent" rating. Otherwise, a lovely and intimate place that we would highly recommend.
Contras: This is a party hotel where people come to spend a night in the city. Rooms very noisy, plain and lacking in style or ambiance. 1st room had a dividing door and we could hear every word that was spoken. We moved rooms. 10.30 at night a party started in the room next door of that room. We called down to reception. The hotel staff knocked on the door many times before they were noticed by the party going on inside! We cannot express how disappointed we were. We will never stay in another Hilton as standard is not guaranteed.
Prós: The renovation excellent great room facilities
Contras: The renovation of the ground floor and noise
