Hotel Review: A by Adina – Premium private apartment in the heart of the City
Edited by Travel Weekly


    This premium property is located in the vibrant city centre of Sydney. The hotel provides the level of comfort and style you’d expect from accommodation designed for both business and leisure travellers, making it the perfect pick for an urban stay.  

    From Uber transport to uber-stylish. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by friendly and attentive staff and the hotel’s look hooked us in from the beginning.  

    The entrance to the hotel itself features an oversized copper water fountain.  This theme of modern interweaved with contemporary is a style that is consistent throughout the building. 

     The Level 21 sky lobby of the hotel is spacious and well-designed, golden crown staircase with sleek furnishings and modern artwork that give it a slightly avant-garde feel. The check-in process was smooth and efficient, and we were quickly shown to our room, located on the 100th floor.  

    The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with a comfortable bed, luxurious linens, and a large floor-to-ceiling window that provided stunning views of the city, giving the illusion of being sky-high.   

    The room was also equipped with a range of modern amenities, including a flat-screen TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, a separate lounge and fully functional kitchen area and a fully stocked mini-bar. The mini bar included a DIY cocktail kit with instructions on how to make your own custom drink which proved a very enjoyable way to start our stay.   

    The bathroom was equally impressive, with high-quality toiletries, a spacious shower and polished styling.  

    Highly recommend upgrading to Destination A where you enjoy designer amenities, credit for the minibar, turndown services, in-room movies, flexible arrival times and the Daily Pause nightly drink and grazing box.  

    One of the highlights of our stay at the A by Adina Hotel was the hotel’s excellent restaurant and boutique bar called Dean and Nancy on 22, which serves delicious food and cocktails.  

     The menu features a range of classic dishes, as well as innovative new creations that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palates.  

     Dean & Nancy also offers a range of carefully curated wines, which perfectly complement the style of the food on offer. 

     Another highlight of our stay was the properties’ range of amenities. The hotel has a fitness centre with a Peloton bike and harbour glimpses and heated pool on level 21 which is perfect for those who want to stay active during their stay.   

    The A by Adina Hotel is perfect for locals looking for a premium and comfortable stay in the heart of the city.  

    The hotel’s excellent service, spacious and well-designed rooms, and high-quality dining options make it the perfect choice for anyone who wants to experience Sydney as it’s meant to be experienced. 

    Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, the A by Adina Hotel in Sydney is one of the ultimate destinations for a truly memorable stay. 

    Travel Weekly was recently hosted at A by Adina.
