The Adelphi is stylish, quirky and on top of offering everything you need right in the centre of Melbourne, the staff are the perfect blend of friendly and efficient. We appreciated a drink on arrival, and as we were celebrating my 40th, the personal well-wishes from staff were lovely. Definitely recommend the Adelphi to anyone with a desire for comfort...

Loved everything about the hotel, the design is amazing, fantastic art work. Breakfast was amazing and the complimentary drink on arrival was a nice touch. Décor amazing and lollies in the room was a nice touch.

Our fourth stay and our last if they continue to heavily perfume the air throughout the property. We found it overbearing. It was the first time that we experienced this in what was becoming one of our favourite Melbourne stays. We could not fault the service or general appointments. But could not help to wonder - what are they trying...

Hi John and Gemma, Firstly I would like to thank you for your continuous loyalty and for returning to Adelphi.

Always love staying here - from the friendly staff, the welcome champagne, super restaurant and the easy to live in room, it is the perfect place to stay whenever i'm in melbourne. Pricing can vary according to the day of the week, as with all hotels. The decor is a terrific bonus.

Was really happy with Adelphi hotel, arrived early and settled into one of their comfy sofas in the lobby area while served a nice cup of latte. Lounged there for about 15 minutes and then was checked into my room. The location was perfect, a short walk to the restaurants that I booked and in the CBD, had dinner at...

Perfect location at the heart of Melbourne CBD! Friendly staff and very warm welcome! The "welcome" writing on the mirror makes you feel so special! Incredibly nice room!! Love it! Just a little reminder to bring your own toothbrush and tooth paste because they don't have it in the bathroom. But, overall, this is a lovely hotel!

Great location. Rooms are nice, but a little over priced for the quality. Pool area is also nice, but not great for all day pool lounging. Nice extras included like free mini bar drinks (non-alc) and snacks.

Unfortunately the noise that was evident from my room at check in continued throughout the night. Reception, decor great, staff wonderful. Sleep - forget it. Such a disappointment, great location, lovely Appelles products, up there for price and for that you want to be able to sleep. Shame.

Really enjoyed our stay. Great location. Only downside was the view from the room was a brick wall and that the two rooms we booked were on different floors - but the fantastic service and room amenities easily made up for this. Appreciated that all the minibar items are already included with no extra charge.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
