“Modest exterior, nice interior”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

This hotel looks very bland from the outside and has almost no lobby or entry area, so it doesn't make a very good first impression. But the rooms are actually very nice, spacious and comfortable -- more stylish by far than the building itself. And the staff is very responsive and helpful with any issues that arise. (For example, I couldn't figure out how to work the heater properly and they came up immediately to show me.) Downside is that the gym is very limited (just one bike and one treadmill and that's about it).

Dear PipoJ,

Thank you for providing us with your valuable feedback in regards to your recent stay with us at Adina Apartment Hotel Chippendale. We are happy to read that you did find our rooms to be clean, spacious and comfortable.

In regards to your notes about the exterior of the building, we do consider ourselves to be a boutique hotel in Chippendale. As you know we are hidden in the suburban streets of Sydney and I think a low rise building like ours goes well with the beautiful Sydney terraces that line the streets around us. Thank you for your positive comments about the team and we hope to see you soon again at Adina Apartment Hotel Chippendale.

Kind Regards

Sid Singh

This second stay was average. Surprised it has been rated at 4 stars.1 bedroom apartment location on ground floor was poor. Close to corner at street level made it rather noisy. Opposite gym and laundry. Bathroom needs update. Another guest staying on same floor, was loud and aggressive in evenings and swearing at reception staff. Room servicing average, but reception staff pleasant enough.

Room Tip: Upstairs and away from street.

Dear Kathleen,

We do appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your second stay was not as you would have expected. we usually do not receive any noise complaints from our guest as there are brick walls between all apartments and they generally stop any noise. But we have noted your comments about the noise from the street and gym and will investigate the issue ourselves.

Thankyou for your lovely feedback about the team. If there is anything you would like to discuss in more detail please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel.

Kind Regards

This was an overnight business. I found studio Queen room all to be in order, clean and spacious for what I needed. The reservation team were helpful and courteous at all times. The café next door Twenty8acres is sensational. To be honest I was a little hesitant (a small café in the back streets). Well I was more than pleasantly surprised. Great service, food and coffee and free WIFI.

Close to the Australian Technology Park and Redfern train station. A leisurely 15 minute walk each day. We were able to park our car even prior to booking in as our conference started in the morning. Excellent.

Dear Judy,

Thank you for sharing your positive feedback with us. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your walks to the Australian Technology park from the hotel and were able to make use of our secured underground parking facility early at the hotel.

For your next stay I would recommend hiring a bicycle from the front desk and exploring the area around us especially places like Newtown and Glebe, I am sure you will enjoy it.

The team and I look forward to welcoming you again at Adina Apartment Hotel Chippendale.

ok unless you rent room 2 which backs on to both the elevator shaft and the early morning cafe, it's like you may as well be sleeping in the cafe.
Also no milk in the room, key encoder not working at check in so issued no keys , made it difficult to go outside when all the noise from hell was happening.Room1 is next to roomk 2 may not be as bad , but i suspect it wonmt be ideal.

Dear Stuart,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. I'm sorry to see that we have not met your expectations in terms of service during check in and that your overall stay was not as comfortable as planned. I can assure you that this is not the standard myself and the team have set for ourselves. As you can see from our other reviews we generally do not receive any noise complaints from our guests. However please be assured that I will investigate this matter myself to ensure this does not happen again.

If you would like to discuss any part of your stay in more detail, please contact me directly at the hotel. We hope that you will return to Adina Chippendale again and we shall endeavour to make your next stay as comfortable as possible.

Kind Regards,

My husband and I stayed here for the first time on a recent trip to Sydney. The hotel is very conveniently located close to the Newtown area with it's many restaurants and the Enmore Theatre. We were very impressed with our studio apartment which was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Our apartment even had a small balcony and I liked the fact that it had opening windows. Parking is available in the secure underground carpark for a reasonable charge, although there also seemed to be plenty of street parking. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or dining room, but the cafe next door is open early for coffee and breakfast! We only stayed for one night but I'm sure we will be back for a longer stay in the future!

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our apartments to be clean and well equipped to all your needs.
