Beautiful Hotel in Good Location

Posted Oct 17, 2017
One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in. We were able to check in a few hours early after a very long trip. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. WiFi is fast. Staff is very attentive and accommodating. Location is within walking distance of the Royal Botanic Garden, the Opera House and Circular Quay. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!

An Amazing and very accommodating hotel!

Posted Oct 15, 2017
Pros: Friendly Staff, Accommodating Hotel, perfect amenities.
Location: The ZOO is well worth the money! Had a great time at the zoo!
We arrived on an early flight 7 AM, and knew we couldn't check in until 3 pm. Knowing this we arrived early and asked if we could store our bags until check in time. Not only did they store our bags, but they also let us freshen up from our long 10 hour flight in their pool spa area, and then let us use there hotel bikes to go tour around the city. The room was amazing and included the mini bar. The beds were super comfortable....and was easily located near all the attractions. We had an AMAZING stay! We will stay again and again!

Mummy and 10 yr old son exploring Sydney

Posted Oct 10, 2017
We arrived at Ovollo at night and my son's first words were WOW . We stood there for a few minutes and admired reception. This is a very old building with modern amenities and lots of quirks . I can't fault this hotel both times i reported something to reception the issues addressed immediately .stunning view from room , comfy bed, blockout curtains, 24 gym, pool and spa , free mini bar stocked daily and i could go on and on. It was nice after a days walking to come back to hotel with iced water , fresh fruit and a few lollies ( if u wanted ) and not to mention comfy chairs in bar area to relax . Well done hotel ovollo u definately set a new benchmark in terms of a holiday experience .

Nicest hotel I have stayed in for quite some time

Posted Oct 7, 2017
I have stayed in a lot of hotels for work and pleasure across Sydney and Australia. This hotel is by far one of the best. It's funky, the room is spacious, the value adds they offer are just nice touches to your stay. The hotel is located on the wharf with some amazing restaurants on their door step (highly recommend China Doll). Would come back to this place in a heart beat and would definitely recommend to friends. Thanks again team Ovolo.

Great location, great staff

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Pros: Hotel staff
Cons: Heating in common areas.
Location: Many restaurants and bars.
I would have given it a five except we arrived in end of August (wintertime in Australia). The hotel is a converted warehouse with no central heat. The common areas were cold in spite of propane heaters. The staff are very well trained and rooms are warm in winter. All in all, one of the best!

Great funky hotel. The room is clean. Able to check in early due to early arrival. Upgraded us to the top floor. Definitely will stay next time in Sydney.

Lovely trendy hotel. Great location close to parks, city and restaurants. Room a bit small but nice attention to details with music playing when you enter the room, free snacks & bar and Apple TV options. Breakfast was ok. Staff excellent.

This hotel has this unique atmosphere, I love it , make me feel like home and the staff make me feel like I'm around good friends . Actually they became my friends, Mary and now Adam . And this is the reason why I'm a retuning guess

Something different

Posted Aug 26, 2017
Great hotel which has a point of difference. Location is fantastic, and staff members match the vibe and create a point of difference. Lobby area is probably the highlight. Very enjoyable stay have stayed at quite a few hotels in the area, but wouldn't have any hesitations coming back here as it may now be my regular when visiting Sydney.
