Editorial review:

The décor of Adelphi Hotel is definitely chic and modern. The swimming pool is perched over the street and has a glass bottom. The inside is furnished with a minimalistic touch using a variety of materials with different textures. The fusion restaurant should also not be missed.

        noise and lack of blinds ie too much light at night

      • Group of friends

        Location was fantastic. Good size room and bathroom.

        I think it is tired. It was obviously an amazing design when first built but I dont think it can command the title of luxury or designer now. We were double charged for the mini bar items and some of the items were stale, which we were charged for even though we pointed this out.

        • Average rating

        Cleanliness of room

        Pool was tepid, and the major construction site nearby with jackhammering and bobcats and bulldozers starting at 7am. The Adelphi does supply earplugs for this but not very romantic or conducive to a sleep in!

        Very convenient location for the MCG,good restaurants and for generally enjoying Melbourne.Very pleasant and helpful staff and a most enjoyable experience except my team ( Carlton ) was beaten by Collingwood.I Have stayed several times and see no reason to change.

        Nothing greatly but I think the bar area lacks atmosphere due to location,decor and layout.

        Great Location for us and we liked the modern style & cleanliness.

        We noticed bottled water beside our bed and thought, How Nice! Complimentary bottles of water to enhance our stay.We were genuinely shocked to find that Adelphi charged for these and it was added to our bill. It left a sour taste in what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay.If you want to charge leave it in the Mini Bar.

        The staff were great and attentive. The location excellent.

        The main issues I encountered were the construction site across the road is a nuisance and you can't block out the noise. They start early and don't finish til 6ish. The decor of the rooms need to be updated asap. The feature couch is terrible. Need new carpeting also. There is no storage under the sink in the bathroom for hairdryers, incidentals etc. and the stainless steel bench is trendy, although not practical in the main bedroom. There are other ways to do a "warehouse" look. In its time, i'm sure the hotel was funky, but it is now a very "dated" look. I'm not sure I would stay here again. For an extra $50 - $80 a night, you would find something in the area alot more luxurious and peaceful.

      • Older travelers

        The room was a great size and had a great feel - we loved the funky industrial style. The hotel is also located in a very central part of Melbourne, only minutes from shops, Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. We thought the hotel was good value for money given its facilities and location.

        Good room size

        Decor looks very tired and shabby. Room not clean. Additional charge for internet access. No bath. Poor quality TV which did not function correctly when we arrived.

      • Older travelers

        Close to all arts venues, iconic part of CBD, nice pool, average price.

        King double was a little to soft, room not very soundproof, apart from construction noises.

        The pool, the bed, the shower, big room, service.

        The hotel is in serious need of an upgrade - rather dated, slightly shabby.

      • Older travelers

        We enjoyed our stay there, very central. The staff were helpful and friendly

        We did not like not being able to open the blind which made our room very gloomy. We enjoyed the pool but it was not as clean as we would have liked
