Luxury Review: Adelphi Hotel, Melbourne

Tucked away in Flinders Lane just a stone’s throw from iconic Flinders Street Station in the heart of Melbourne, you will discover Adelphi Hotel, arguably the most perfect boutique city accommodation ever to exist.

As you walk through the entrance of Adelphi, prepare to be blown away by the vibrant reception area; a sweet treat for the eyes. Admire the swinging chairs, liquorice all-sort stools and cutting-edge artwork as you wait for your welcome drink to be brought to you by the all-too-welcoming reception staff. With 24 hour reception, you can arrive at any hour and be welcomed with a warm smile.

Soon you will find that your bags are whisked away and you’re being shown through the most quirky hotel room you’ve ever seen. Choose from the Comfy Twin, Plush King room all the way through to the uber impressive Palatial Suite. The Adelphi is the ultimate getaway destination for couples or anyone looking for a weekend of fun in the city with friends.


The sleek bathroom in the Plush King boasts a stainless steel double vanity harbouring luxury amenities, a bath and shower (and a hair dryer for those who can’t stand the thought of venturing into a public place with damp hair!)


As you progress further into the Plush King room you will find a living area that has been poached from the glossy cover of a lifestyle magazine. The living area is decked out with a charming couch and lamp, a king-size bed, 40-inch flat screen LED TV and most importantly, a welcome jar crammed to the brink with sugary treats guaranteed to give you the sweetest of dreams (don’t worry it is completely free and replenished daily!) Think coconut ice, liquorice and sugar coated jellies! Sugarholics are undoubtedly catered for at sweet Adelphi.



In your bar fridge you will find a range of complimentary drinks and caffeine addicts are well catered for thanks to the sleek Lavazza Amodo Mio Coffee machine provided in each room.

In the morning, enjoy your Apelles luxury amenities in the shower before exploring this hidden gem of a hotel. Don’t hesitate to take a quick detour to Level 8 to cast your eyes upon the urban glory of the rooftop pool. Even in the colder months, you won’t want to miss a quick sneak peak.



At Adelphi you are ideally based to explore the gems of Melbourne’s CBD. Enjoy a quick breakfast at the hotel or venture out to explore the quirky laneway culture that Melbourne is famous for. The friendly staff will be the first to encourage you to indulge in the surrounding café culture home to prime dining experiences and boutique shopping.

Perhaps one of the highlights of the hotel is the in-house dessert bar, Om Nom, where you will wrap your lips around indulgent sweet treats sure to add centimetres to your wasteline. Sink your spoon into the renowned ChocolaTerrarium comprised of cinnamon sugared churros, chocolate ‘gravel’, pistachio + chocolate sponge, chocolate icecream, valhrona manjari 64% mousse + milk foam! The staff recommend the Apple Tatin and the Mango Alphonso. Sample the Raspberry Field (shown below) which is a sight for sore eyes and a refreshing break from the chocolate overload. If your less of a sweet-tooth, Om Nom has a range of savoury dinner options and don’t forget that Flinders Lane is overflowing with culinary delights.



Enjoy your dessert with an expresso martini before retiring to your room to capitalise on the free movies available. As part of the turn-down service, you will be greeted with a delightfully-flavoured macaron by your bed – the most pleasant of nightcaps!


After indulging in the cosiest of weekend escapes, you will be offered a take away candy bag to sweeten your goodbye!


Stay at Adelphi Hotel and enjoy a unique accommodation encounter right in the heart of the city.
