Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney Surry Hills

Reviewed June 2, 2013

A perfect location right in the centre of the restaurants on Crowb Street. Nice apartment, slightly tired but gave us everything we needed. Would be improved if the bed linen was ironed instead of straight from the dryer!

We had a lot of fun, the staff were excellent. Bills for breakfast was amazing!

Room Tip: Top floor is pretty quiet despite being on the main road

I very much enjoyed my recent stay at Adina on Crown Street. I arrived quite late, and received a very friendly greeting from the desk staff. Having 24 hour reception in an apartment hotel is a bit of a treat!!

The location is ideal for those doing business up the Surry Hills end of town. It's in easy walking distance of some of Sydney's more colourful communities - and the area is certainly not lacking in great eateries.

My two bedroom apartment was spacious and spotless. The kitchen was well appointed, and had everything in it you could need. Lounge furnishings were reasonably new and comfortable. One of the bedrooms had an ensuite. The other bedroom had easy access to the main bathroom. The apartment also boasted a separate laundry. In short, it's not lacking in space!

I was on the third floor, and had no issue with street noise at all.

I will happily make Adina my base when needing something up that end of town - and I'm very happy to recommend it to other tripadvisor readers.

We stayed at the Adina for six nights, and had opted for an apartment to have a bit more room and daytime space. In general, it works out well as a one-bedroom apartment (in some hotels it is more a bedroom with an annex). The living room is reasonably spacious and the overall layout was quite good. The bedroom was a bit cramped, although it had good wardrobe space. The kitchenette is fine, we had family over one evening and it was sufficient to prepare a full dinner.

The location is good, with a lot of good restaurants and bars nearby, as well as some corner stores. The buses on Crown Street will bring you to Circular Quay, but it is also quite walkable, with QVB, Botanic Garden and Darling Harbour all about 30 minutes walk. Street noise is only an issue if you have the windows open.

Annoyances: (1) They charge for wifi, and it is expensive. When so many places are happy to provide it free, there is no justification for such high prices. (2) When we checked out, we were charged for $150 of extras that had nothing to do with us - breakfast at Bills and a bottle of wine. We managed to get them cancelled, but if we had not been attentive we would have been stiffed.

I find it hard to make a call on value for money. Prices in Sydney are steep, and that's even before considering how strong/overvalued the Oz dollar is right now. If I compare it to other Sydney accommodation, it is reasonable value. If I consider what it cost me in real money, it is not good value, but no worse than anywhere else in Sydney.

My heading says it all. I stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was spacious and reasonably quiet considering it was right on Crown St. Each bedroom had a TV as well as the large lounge area. We had a pleasant little balcony on which we drank some wine and looked out over the metropolis. It is well located near some good restaurants, bars and breakfast cafes. There is a pool and a garden area as well. The staff were pleasant to deal with. It's about a $35 cab fare from the airport.

We stayed for three nights in a lovely 2 bedroom apartment. Spent most of our time sight seeing CBD and waterfront areas but was easy to walk back to if still had the energy or taxi not too expensive when absolutely exhausted.
Very clean and all mod cons needed though bathroom was showing a wee bit of wear and tear.
Staff very friendly though not always accurate with information about local things happening.
Used the pool and spa which were great. Had no problems about the mini bar but we were very definite about them checking before we even left the hotel.

First time staying at this property and found everything to be very satisfactory. Stayed on the 6th floor facing Crown St and enjoyed a lovely view of the surrounding neighbourhood. It's truly a great location to get away from the touristy CBD and sample a great range of nearby cafes, bars and restaurants. The hotel is not shiny and new by any means but everything is clean and functional and the staff were very helpful. Will be staying here again for sure.
