I have just returned from staying 6 nights & 7 days at the Adelaide Paringa. The staff were very friendly upon arrival and through out my stay. The room was spacious and clean and we had clean towels each day of our stay. We have seen from other reviewers about the noise on Hindley Street, especially on a Friday & Saturday night. We did expect noice because we were staying in a major city but the noise did not bother us. It was the noise of people enjoying their weekend out. The only down fall was you have to have the air conditioner on through out your stay as it does get stuffy, especially if you have windows facing away. But besides that we can not fault the hotel. It was good value for money and look forward to staying with them again

I stayed here for 3 nights in early December in room 501. The room was larger than I expected, bed was comfortable and there was a mini fridge. The staff were friendly. The location is the standout. It's at the end of Hindley Street right at the start of Rundle Mall. 2 minute walk to the Casino and right near public transport
Janine Commented on - 12-Dec-2014 01:50 PM
Enjoyed my stay at Adelaide Paringa. Loved my hotel room as it was spacious and it provided me with everything I needed; fridge, towels, large TV, radio, alarm clock and even magazines to read. My bed was very comfortable and I had a total of 5 pillows. Yes you can hear noises from the outside at about 1am which woke me up and it was from the people who were still rambling on the streets. It was unfortunate that my flight to Adelaide was delayed due to the thunderstorm as I would have loved to stay in Paringa longer. The receptionists were professional, friendly and helped me with all my queries.

You won't get a better location, transport (tram, bus, train) North Terrace, Mall eateries. Only $86 night had 3 nights (Tuesday - Thursday), very quiet. Staff extremely helpful. Very good lounge at reception, with free spring water and capsule coffee. Twin room had a good TV, ensuite, table, small fridge, unit for luggage, kettle. Good lighting and airconditioning. Dated style in a heritage building but suited us well. Room a bit small, went to an apartment with kitchen for another 9 nights but missed the Paringa. With so many cheap eateries a couple doesn't really need a kitchen. Close to Casino for meals too

We always stay at the Paringa for our annual boy's weekend away in Adelaide. Value for money, especially with it being so close to everything. One doesn't expect 5 star facilities for the amount paid and we actually spend little time in the rooms anyway. We will be back next year!

Great location, access to all of Adelaides great spots. Managed to find night free parking at Hindmarsh Square. Water pressure in the shower was excellent. T.V. well located and close enough for the remote to work! Most of the front desk staff were lovely. Cleaning staff not so polite and seemed like they couldn't be bothered. Over all would definitely stay again.

Adelaide Paringa is located in a wonderful location. I booked a great deal I found on this website and paid no booking fee which helps too. The hotel has nice facilities, but the real plus is that staff are willing to go the extra mile. Thankyou!

Mike Commented on - 26-Aug-2013 09:29 AM
Adelaide Paringa is ideal walking distance to/from Adelaide Zoo where I attended a weekend conference & so handy for various eateries. My problem was there was nothing to complain about! It was great to be able to leave luggage Sunday morning & collect in the afternoon after the conference & get a taxi back to the airport.

Spick and Span! Its location close to Rundle Mall was fantastic..
Watery Commented on - 16-Aug-2013 12:06 PM
Considering the low price that I paid for the room, it's well worth the $$. If you are going for luxury, then forget about this hotel as it's only very basic. But it's more than adequate for me as I am only there to sleep and wants a central location and clean room.
Room was clean and adequate sized. I was able to open up a big sized luggage and even place a fully opened up baby stroller in the room and still have some walking space around the room. In fact, there was even space to put in a baby cot as well. Room was also quiet. We didn't hear any sound from outside at all during our entire five nights stay. Maybe it helps that we were on the fifth level (highest level) and the last room which is the furthest from the lift.
Staff were helpful and attentive to our needs. I requested only upon check in for a tub to bathe my baby in, and there were nice enough to run over to another hotel to borrow the tub for our use. They were even attentive enough to get us small blankets for the baby even though We had not thought of requesting for it.
Location of the hotel was central. It's well within walking distance to many places and shopping areas. Restaurants were also abundant at the hotel area. As for convenience of public transport near the hotel, can't really comment on that except that the hotel is very near a car rental shop which was exactly what we wanted as We had wanted to rent a car to travel out of the city.
Tip: if you are arriving at the airport, don't bother taking the public transport to the hotel unless you are a solo traveller because the bus ticket cost 13aud per person But the taxi fare is only about 25aud (luckily the hotel had advised us on this prior to our arrival so We were able to travel comfortably to the hotel in a taxi rather than carry a baby plus a big luggage and stroller up the bus)

Loved the location of Paringa, close to Rundle and within walking distance of a wide variety of foods. Paringa made our first trip to Adelaide memorable. Staff were friendly, and room was cosy. Great value for money, close to the 24 hour pancake house too ;) Will definitely stay at Paringa during my next visit.

This property calls itself a "Motel". It is very basic but it is a hidden gem! It is situated right at the start of Rundle Mall and the centre of the city. The tram stop for the free city sightsee tram is a two minute walk... We would go back.
Marganne Commented on - 24-May-2013 06:03 PM
We stayed here for two nights. The room on the 5th floor, with a tv and lots of storing space, a double bed and a table with 2 chairs. The shower was hot and we got very nice fluffy towels and all amenities (soap, shampoo, bath gel, bodylotion). Location on Hindley Street is great, with restaurants and shops all within close range. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't care much for luxury, but just wants an affordable and clean place to stay.

Arrived here after a few days on Kangaroo Island, from the very quiet to the very busy. The night we stayed was a friday night and because this area is the "Kings Cross" of Adelaide it was busy and noisy. Our room had double glazing and helped block the noise. The room was west facing and hot when we arrived but the air con worked well and cooled the room down. The rooms are what you pay for, not flash but clean and there is a bar fridge. The staff are friendly and helpful. The little cafe below which is open long hours is OK for breakfast and a night cap, if you are so inclined. There is a $10 continental breakfast in the room if you want that, just a few boxes of ceral but OK if you are in a hurry or dont to go out . Whilst its on the night area of Adelaide, its the quieter end of the street and for the shoppers, almost in Rundle Mall.
Bruce Commented on - 12-Apr-2013 12:04 PM
The staff were great and had managed an early check in for us despite the frantic pace and great demand for accommodation in Adelaide in March. It was a hot day and they had turned our air conditioning on in advance. The room was not terribly spacious, but very clean and with comfortable bedding. We were so satisfied that we booked this hotel once again for our final night in Adelaide.
Anonymous Commented on - 12-Apr-2013 12:00 PM
Stayed three nights. Hotel in great location near Rundle St mall. Lots of places to eat and drink on Hindley Street. Most of the tours will pick up from the hotel too which is convenient. Wifi only works in reception which is frustrating. As a lone traveller u need to keep in touch with people. This was my only bug bear though. Everything else was spot on.
Anonymous Commented on - 12-Apr-2013 11:56 AM
it is right next to the main shopping area (Rundle Mall) which is to the right as you leave the lane. A 10 minute walk through Rundle Mall takes you to Rundle Street, which is far more up market and has loads of great pubs and restaurants (check out Scoozi for Italian food - delicious!). A 10 minute walk up the main road takes you to Victoria Square and the tram to Glenelg, the beach. A 5 minute walk the other direction takes you to the Adelaide Cricket Oval.
elle Commented on - 12-Apr-2013 11:55 AM
The hotel is situated on Hindley Street, which is Adelaide's version of a red light district. To be fair it is a very tame area, with the strip clubs etc being further down the street (to the left as you exit the lane from the hotel on Hindley Street). The area was certainly a very quiet area compared to any town or city centre I've been to in the UK and there is a police station right across the street.
