Booking your Adelaide accommodation might appear like a huge task. After all, Adelaide is a large and wonderful city that offers a tremendous amount of motels, hotels, apartments and budget accommodation. So where do you start?
Although I want to shed some light on the various choices you have, this can only be a drop in the bucket.
So the first thing you need to decide is where you want to stay: in the city centre, along the major through roads, on the beach front, or in the hills.
Adelaide is a green city with tree-lined streets, parks and the beautiful River Torrens running right across the centre. Staying in the central business distrect (CBD) is a good choice.
If you arrive by car, leave it in a car park, and don't worry about it anymore. Arrive by public transport? No problem! The interstate railway terminal is connected by a shuttle bus to the city.
All sights and attractions can be reached on foot, or by bus. The museums on North Terrace, the Festival Centre right on the river, shopping malls, whatever you intend to do. King William Street runs from north to south through the city centre. Side roads you shouldn't miss are Hindley Street where the nightlife happens, Rundle Mall and Rundle Street for a great shopping experience.
There is much more to discover. But first, we look at a hotel where you can rest after a full day of sightseeing.
All hotels offer their own car parking, or reservated spots in a public car park, although at additional cost. Have a look at the Adelaide hotels in the city. If you don't find anything that suits you, you can always decide to stay in a suburb, or on the beach.

These Adelaide apartments are in another heritage listed building, at least the facade is. The Franklin central apartments offer great value for your money with a very friendly service. The location again is a top spot.
Spacious one, two or three bedroom apartments, fully self-contained, kitchen and laundry facilities included. The three bedroom apartment has even two bathrooms. The serviced apartments are an ideal place for a longer stay in Adelaide.

Online hotel booking services abound on the internet, it is hard to know where to start. Below I have listed a few general and specialised services where you can start to explore Adelaide's hotel facilities. Just click on an image to check them out.
Sure, you can always ring a hotel to make arrangements, or book from their own website, but you need to know this hotel first.
HotelsCombined is an accommodation search engine that offers results from major booking services and travel websites. That's cool, you can compare all prices and offers in one place! No need to crawl through all travel websites yourself.
Of course, you can also make your booking once you've found the right deal.
Are you still stuck and can't decide where to stay? Read reviews of other travellers at TripAdvisor. Although sometimes comments reach from "very nice" to "awful", these reviews help to form an opinion. I always check TripAdvisor before I make an online booking.
