I love the location of this hotel, the helpful staff, the rooms and service in general. The licorice chocolate in the room and the general mini-bar inclusion in the room is a great idea. My favourite part is how long or rather how quickly room service comes. I have never waited more than minutes for my order and I love... More

I loved everything about my stay at the Adelphi. I was in Melbourne on business but would love to come back and stay for a vacation. Very friendly and helpful staff. My room was gorgeous (perhaps not to everyone's taste but nothing bland about it). I felt really relaxed watching a free movie from my huge comfy bed and indulging... More

The Adelphi exceeded my expectations, and is definitely worthy of being a 5 star property with as many awards and accolades as it has received. I am a Travel Agent and was in Melbourne for a work trip, which I extended for a few extra personal days and stayed at the Adelphi for those extra nights. I hadn't stayed here... More

What a surprise, this place tops all expectations from the time you arrive out front with your bags. These guys have the boutique experience nailed! Service and character is great to see , simple but a rarity. I would highly recommend a stay here for any Melbourne trip

My partner and I decided to spend our four-year anniversary at Adelphi Hotel. It was my first time in Melbourne and I wanted to stay somewhere centrally located that reflected Melbourne’s style, and was artistic and quirky. Adelphi’s brand identity is “engage” and they succeed this from the second you walk in. Your senses are immediately stimulated by the smell... More

My family purchased a '5 star' overnight stay for my 50th birthday. This place is far from 5 star! Not one staff member smiled. We were not informed the pool was 'outside and cold'. The room was cold and the staff member didn't know how to work the central heating! Another staff myer tried to take back the champagne which... More

I have been fortunate to spend time in some great hotels around the world but I dont think I have ever been in one where the staff (every single one of them) was so friendly and helpful. My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in the hotel before going to Sydney and then came back and spent 5 more... More

My wife and I decided to head away for our anniversary in Melbourne. Being parents to a 17 month old boy, and unable to find care for him, we brought him along too. The customer service we received upon arrival was like nothing I've ever experienced anywhere else. When we arrived in our room, we had a personalised message scribed... More

From our perspective the Adelphi is an outstanding hotel. Especially, the friendly and obliging service impressed us. This small-sized hotel has a modern, stylish and significant interior. It is located within walking distance to all sights of Melbourne. We really enjoyed our 3 nights and can definitely recommend this accommodation. Special thanks to the reception for the dining recommendations.

This is a boutique hotel not far from Flinders Station. Very friendly staff who kindly left us a 'happy anniversary' note and complimentary wine. The room is good but probably not as flash as it looks on the website. It has not long been renovated but looks a little rough. Having said that very comfortable bed, big room, big bath... More
