“Perfect stay in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The ADGE Apartment Hotel has everything for a great stay in the city. Bright, modern facilities, big balcony and great views, pleasant staff, great location in the heart of Surry Hills. Lots of good restaurants, bars, grocers and other shops in the immediate vicinity, starting with the two attached outlets. Walking distance to parks and many more great spots, and the Central station.

Room Tip: Can be noisy at times, facing the street. But that is city life!

What a fabulous find, I purchased the $250 Getaway Lounge voucher and used it for my husband's birthday. Our apartment faced the city and with the wrap around balcony it was lovely to sit and enjoy the afternoon sunshine. The carpet was vibrant and was complemented by the white of the wall and the bedding. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom products were lovely. We didn't use the kitchen facilities, which were first class. Chris Issac the concierge was very friendly and helpful. I wish I had purchased more than one voucher.

My wife and I just enjoyed a 1 night stay at Adge Apartments and we have to say that the reviews are true.
The apartment itself is very cool and funky, offering 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen, as well as very out there carpet lighting and furnishings, that will make your stay more of an experience than just a typical hotel stay.
But the real difference with Adge Apartment hotel is the service, from the welcome email and message prior to our stay from Chris and right up to our check-in where we were taken up to our room by Sharon, shown around and made to feel that anything we needed they could help us with. Oh and the nightly turndown service is a nice touch.
Don't just take every other reviewers word for it, go and enjoy the experience for yourself, we'll certainly be back.

Hi aussiefamily,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. While it’s a shame you could only stay for 1 night; it’s great you both ‘dared to be different’ and enjoyed all that the ADGE has to offer. Our focus on service is a reflection on our team’s passion for this industry. Both Chris and Sharon are appreciative of your great comments, and look forward to welcoming you back, hopefully for a longer stay next time.
Warm regards.

Stayed here with my hubby a few weeks ago in a 2 Bedroom Apartment room 201.

Upon checking in, the 2 guys on reception was very thorough, however did seem to bombard with a few too many excessive questions. Ambience however was fantastic down in the lobby.

The room itself was well equipped, and the Peter Morrisey toiletries was fantastic. A few negatives would have to be that there is no space between the wall and TV to allow your usb stick inserted into the usb port to watch movies. Secondly and the most annoying issue was hearing the beeping noise from the crossing on the corner all night long. With 2 x doors to the balcony, clearly they are not soundproofed enough. Tried calling reception a few times at around 1am for earplugs, however no one picked up.

If you want to try out this new hiphop serviced apartment, and you have high tolerance to constant noise, than this place would be perfect. You may need to bring your own earplugs if you stay in room 201.

Room Tip: Don't ask for 201 as the constant crossing beeping noise is monotonous and does not stop!!

Stayed at the Adge early September for a weekend break, check in was very good, our two bedroom apartment was on the sixth floor. The apartment had everything you could need, a television in each room, washing machine & dryer, two bathrooms, balcony, coffee machine & kitchen. Staff were great, the only problem was there were parties in the penthouse above on both nights making sleep impossible. So much for the 'no party policy'.

Room Tip: Do not book a room on the sixth floor in case of parties in the penthouse above.

Stumbled across ADGE on Trip Advisor during a recent trip to Sydney. Very much in the vibe of the Art Series hotels in Melbourne, these apartments are very funky and excellently fitted with lots of convenient features. Little touches like a personal note from the housekeeper and the tv remotes sanitized and sealed in a protective sleeve demonstrate real attention to detail. All the apartments have two bedrooms however I understand sometimes the second bedroom can be locked out and the apartment sold as a one bed unit. The location in Surry Hills is very convenient and there is lots of off-street parking. I stayed in apartment 101 which is on the 1st floor on the Riley St side, a little noisy when a happy patron or two left the irish pub across the road but this did add to the NYC SoHo feeling that you get from being in Surry Hills anyway. There is a great little restaurant in the foyer that is open for breakfast through late for drinks but there are lots and lots of dining options all around the area. If you want the extra room and feel like you are really a part of the city ADGE is worth a try.

Room Tip: If you are concerned about street noise select a higher level room.

Hi ozwineguy,
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on your recent stay with us at the ADGE Apartment Hotel. It’s great you found our apartment-suites funky, well-furnished and well-positioned. I’m glad you enjoyed the new ‘Riley Street Café’ in our foyer (their homemade peanut butter is delicious) as well as the numerous eateries and dining available in Surry Hills. Our unique positioning gives our guests the best of Sydney’s inner-city, with the eclectic personality of the city-fringe on their doorstep. Thank you again, our team look forward to welcoming you back.
Warm regards.

Tried this new hotel in the city fringe of Sydney. As per my title exceeded my expectations expectations in every way. Modern funky vibrant colorful. These. Attribute sums it up what it is. Staff are genuinely service oriented. Loved the herbal drink and the chocolates. Could easily live here forever. Well done Adge team on a fantastic institution you have. Have already booked my return stay during Ashes.
