“A tidy option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Stayed at the Adina while on a recent business trip. A one bed apartment facing Flinders Street, close to the Convention Centre. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The front office staff were friendly and helpful. The only issue is street noise, being close to both train and tram lines - suggest a room that does not face Flinders Street.

Room Tip: Get a room that does not face Flinders street due to tram and train proximity.

Thank you for staying at Adina Melbourne Northbank on your recent business trip. We were delighted to note that you had enjoyed your stay and that various members of our team were friendly and helpful.

I have stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Adina (formerly Medina) twice. The first time I was on a lower floor, and could hear a bit of street noise, which is not unexpected given it's on a busy street, and was fixed by buying earplugs. The second time I was on the 8th floor, and there was much less street noise. The apartments are fantastic, with pretty much everything you want, including a full kitchen. The gym and pool are handy, and the hotel is pretty well located, especially if you like walking. I would definitely recommend the Adina.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor for less street noise

This hotel' room was very clean and spaious.
Although I only saw the next apartment rooms form the balcony and there was no sunshine in my room.
I borrowed the shave cream. At that time the staff said no fee for it. However, when I checked out, I had to pay some money for it.
If you use this hotel just to sleep, I can reccomend it.

The hotel is in a good location, with tram stops close by, a short walk to the Docklands area and the Melbourne Aquarium. Staff are very nice and helpful but we were a little disappointed with the cleaning of the room. We had to speak to the reception staff on two occasions and whilst our feedback was taken on board the first time and the issue rectified, the second time it wasn't.

Great value apartments in a good location. Modern styled complex with a great cafe/resturaunt attached. Good alternative to Crown if you need to be close to Southbank.

Bargin at around $200 per night for a 1 bedroom apartment with kitchen and laundry etc

I stayed at this apartment a few years ago and am happy to say it still looks as new.
The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. They made checking in and out very quick and hassle free.
The rooms are a very comfortable size and allow privacy in even a studio apartment. I was very happy to see the stereo was ipod adaptable and there was a T.V in both the lounge and bedrooms.
The full kitchen and well sized bathroom, makes you feel very at home without having the cramped hotel atmosphere.
The apartment is very clean, well stocked and stylish. I would happily stay here again and recommend it to anyone travelling to Melbourne.

Confusion about which property led me to the wrong one at 88. Despite assurances from the lady at front-desk, it really isnt feasible to walk to 550 with luggage. She would have accepted me there but didnt since I did not book direct - well thats because its dearer on your website! Ah but they price match, just dont say so on their website - wonder why.

The property at 550 is clean and modern but is noisy - both internally from the party room door (yes it was locked), other floors, the stupidly loud lift buttons and garbage truck in the lane at 5:15am! And that was after insisting on a quiet room.

Problems with ironing board were eventually resolved after several tries only to find they use the cheap irons with 1.5M leads. How can Medina ever target the corporate market by saving $5 on a quality iron?!?

Pool was good and is heated but massive flood lights near blind you in the low-ceiling room. I guess they let the electrician choose them - it pays to manage your trades.

Noticed no complaint form on the Adina website so sharing here more broadly to help save you from a bad nights sleep! A real shame Adina isnt better managed.

Room Tip: Well I asked for a quiet room and that clearly didnt work!
