Adelaide Accommodation

A Guide to Adelaide hotels, motels & budget accommodation

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.

The beautiful Adelaide Arcade at Rundle Mall offers great shopping
Beautiful Adelaide Arcade, Rundle Mall

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.

How to find and book your Adelaide accommodation ?

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.
