When visiting Melbourne, I generally choose to stay at another hotel for its proximity to my work but when booking late, I found my regular hotel to be booked out due to the football grand final, as were most other well known hotels. I was worried about the Adina at the time as it was a slightly cheaper hotel but to my surprise, it was great. Whilst not in the centre of the city, the hotel was in a good location with easy access to local services.
On arrival, the staff, Samir, greeted me by my first name which indicated that the hotel actually do care about making guests feel welcome. On check out, I was offered the option of leaving bags with them in a secure area. Whilst I didn't need this, it was good of them to offer.
The room was very comfortable with all features that I needed.
I would be happy to stay at this hotel again on my next trip to Melbourne.
