Industrial chic in Melbourne

Flinders Lane was once the heart of Melbourne’s thriving rag trade. The skinny, 1930s concrete building that now houses the Adelphi was once a soft goods warehouse but in the hands of a team of architects who bought it in the late 80s, it was turned into a wonderfully unique boutique hotel.
The redesign is the brainchild of Melbourne-based design studio, Hachem, and as soon as you enter, you immediately know you are somewhere special. A large horse and carriage sculpture doubles up as the reception desk, ceilings are dotted with mirrored tiles and bold modern art pieces adorn the walls. The colours and textures of the hotel are inspired by sweets and desserts, and rich chocolate tones abound alongside stools in the shape of liquorice allsorts and cherry-shaped light installations.
Rooms are characterised by geometric carpets, bold prints and colourful fabrics but the cream-coloured walls and sophisticated design touches ensure rooms remain elegant and on the right side of quirky. Flinders King rooms occupy the corners of the buildings, large windows flooding them with natural light and offering views out over Flinders Lane. The Palatial Suite features a separate bedroom and living area separated by a central hallway and with space for extra beds, it is a great option for families.
As its name suggests, the cuisine at Om Nom tantaslises the taste buds, its meticulous presentation a real feast for the eyes. In this intimate setting, treat yourself to carefully crafted dishes and signature desserts enjoyed alongside fine wine, craft beer and expertly mixed cocktails. Located beneath the hotel is Ezard, where east meets west in a wonderful fusion menu.
