“Great location and service for a boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location - cannot get better. On Flinders lane, walking distance to most great restaurants, attractions.
Service - Outstanding. When I checked in, I requested for concierge on 3 things - car rental, Phillip island and day trip to Great Ocean. The next day, reception called to confirm all 3 items. Car rental was done by them and so were the other 2.
Room - Nice large room with nice amenities, some free snacks and mini bar. Coffee machine is great. Amazing coffee.

The best thing about the Adelphi is the location. Located on Flinders Lane in the CBD, you’re within blocks of many stylish restaurants and cafes, shops, sites, Melbourne’s laneways, and the tram on Flinders Street. Plus the river is close by, which makes for very nice strolling or having a drink or meal along the water. The service at the hotel also was very good – warm welcome with champagne. We had a king room which was very large, clean and modern, but pretty basic. The window opens straight onto an office building. There’s no bathtub. However, the hotel has free movies you can order straight to the TV, free gourmet candy and water/juice from the minibar. Wifi was included. There’s a long narrow pool on the roof deck (too cold to use in April when we were there), and guests can park in the garage next door for $16/day. Overall a very convenient choice for staying in central Melbourne (a city that we loved visiting!).

The Adelphi was a good quality boutique hotel. The room was large and very comfortable, there was a delicious assortment of candy to feast on, the pool and deck on the rooftop have great views of Melbourne CBD, the staff are always happy to help and a pleasure to deal with. I really can't fault the place on anything!

The Adelphi Hotel is a unique hotel and is best suited for those looking for a different experience. The hotel is blessed with marvellous sculptures and artwork in the foyer. You are greeted at reception on arrival with a big smile and a complimentary drink. A very nice start start to our visit. The room was a King Room and is large and very well appointed. Wifi is free, as is the chocolate basket, coffee machine and drinks (non alcoholic) in the bar fridge. Again a very nice touch. The breakfast is off the menu avoiding the dreadful buffets that seem to dominate in hotel world - and it is good. Coffee is great. It is hard to fault the Adelphi, other than most of the rooms do not have a view, and the rooftop pool area needs some serious renovation - but for us, in Melbourne, at Easter, the rooftop pool didn't matter much. Well done

I was so pleased with our stay at the Adelphi. The building was BEAUTIFUL. As soon as you step into the lobby you're met with luxury, style, and lovely staff. We were offered a drink upon arrival and then taken up to our room. We stayed in the plush king, and plush it was. lovely big bed, spacious room, HUGE bathroom, big cupboard, robes, FREE mini bar, FREE movies, FREE wifi, coffee machine in the room, a big jar of sweets - you name it, we had it. The location was great and the rooftop pool was even better. It was heated so we were able to do some laps in the morning even though it was only 15 deg! We caught the tram in so can't shed any light on parking. Only (slight) downfall was it was a little bit noisy at night but thats to be expected in the city and really didn't bother us. We stayed here for a weekend away and it we will be back again and again and again.

What a great place to stay in Melbourne. Right in the heart of the central business district, but on a quiet side street. Easy to walk to phenomenal restaurants and to catch the free CBD trolley that takes you to all the places in the heart of Melbourne. The staff were professional and very friendly and greet you with a glass of wine on your arrival to check in. They arranged our transport to the airport for the day we left; cost about $40 less than our taxi in. Great restaurant for breakfast with wonderful gluten free options.

Room Tip: our room looked out on a wall, so no view. but even though the street was crowded at night, there w...

We stayed here for a night for a weekend get away. The hotel is well located and there are adequate car parking located around the hotel. The service provided by the staff was excellent and the lounge/ lobby area was very welcoming. The room itself was a good size including the bathroom. A candy buffet was provided in the room which was nice touch. The roof top pool is pretty cool with good views of the city area. Overall, a nice experience and we would stay here again.
