“Great hotel! Amazing modern rooms. Rooftop pool. Seriously what more could you ask for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Not the cheapest place, but got a great deal, and I wasn't disappointed. The location is great with Chin Chins down the road and don't forget the Meatball & Wine co. The room was amazing. All the modern facilities you want. Initially the light in the tea/bar fridge cupboard did not work, but they quickly fixed it up. I ordered dine in breakfast and was impressed. Great espresso coffee also, to kick start my day. It's such a modern arty hotel and when you get to the rooftop on a summers day with the lap pool...wow! The sauna and steam room is great, and you can Bol the steam room for you and your partner if you want privacy. I will definitely stay there again.

Anna, thank you very much for your review.
I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your recent experience with us!
I have immensely enjoyed managing Adelphi and its amazing surroundings so much so that I recently bought it with two highly talented and passionate business partners.
We have decided to close its doors for a short period while we renovate, modernise and revitalise "her".
We will still keep the best elements like the great espresso coffees, free high speed internet, steam room and rooftop pool and we will be upgrading the public areas & furnishings to make it an even better experience for our guests. (Minibar/cupboard lights will be fixed, I promise).
Like kids in a candy shop, we really cant wait to re-open Adelphi, however we will have to wait for a little bit longer. We are thinking June/July 2013 at this stage.

We will launch our new website in a few weeks so you can view the progress.

Best Regards,
Dion
