ADGE Hotel + Residences in the heart of Surry Hills readies to open its doors next month with La Vie Hotels & Resorts at the helm.
Celebrating the unique stories of Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Surry Hills, the new designer hotel ADGE Hotel + Residences is putting on the finishing touches before it officially opens next month.
Located on Riley Street, minutes from bustling Oxford Street, ADGE Hotel + Residences is an exciting newly built hotel that embraces bold colours, eclectic furnishings and serious personality in V&T style.
Managed by La Vie Hotels & Resorts, the new-build ADGE hotel sits just behind the former Cambridge Hotel, which is undergoing a complete transformation and will rebrand to ADGE Hotels + Residence when it completes its makeover in early 2024. The two hotels will be connected via the communal lobby, which also services the existing ADGE Residence property located next door.
Designed for the times
Designed in collaboration between Tzannes and Team 2 Architects with interiors by SJB, the new hotel will sit alongside the former Cambridge Hotel, which will also rebrand to ADGE Hotel + Residences and is undergoing a significant overhaul. Together, the hotels form part of a $65m site transformation that mirrors the unique spirit and energy of Surry Hills through bold colours, eclectic furnishings and plenty of personality.
Set to become the destination for urban adventurers, ADGE Hotel + Residences offers 93 creatively designed guest rooms featuring bold carpets, pod-style bathrooms, SMEG fridges and Nespresso machines. This is in addition to 12 existing two-bedroom apartments that offer open-plan living and dining, fully equipped kitchens and large wraparound balconies.
The exterior design features interlocking brick details that create folding forms on the facade and reflect the industrial spirit of Surry Hills. While the interiors are designed to create a unique space where fashion, music, art and culture collide.
Featuring a specially commissioned large-scale mural at the hotel entrance from eminent Australian artist, Adrian Hing, inviting the curious to uncover what’s inside, each hotel floor features a unique colour and art style.
Food for the soul
Soul Deli is calling the lobby of ADGE Hotel home – the much-feted Korean café recently relocated to its new digs at 212 Riley Street. With retro furnishings, pink-tiled tabletops and pale-yellow booths, queues have already been forming out the door, anticipation building around what’s going on past the wild Andrew Hing mural that adorns the hotel lobby.
New year expansion
When the complete renovation of the former Cambridge Hotel is complete early next year, ADGE Hotel + Residence will boast a total of 242 guestrooms and also house an Italian-style restaurant with a well-known chef already poised to take the reins. Guests can also delight in dining at the intimate Japanese omakase restaurant, Raida Noda’s Chef Kitchen, where the Chef’s selection replaces the menu each night and diners – of which there can only be eight at any one time, sit around the open kitchen and watch the masters in action.
