Travellers' Choice
Blending past, present and progressive, a place where retro chic and pop-art collide. Taking its design cues from the days of disco, rock gods and retro glamour, the vibe of Ovolo South Yarra is bold, creative and unpredictable. All mods. Zero cons. Each room infuses retro-plush, with accents of chrome and colour, including four Rockstar suites – named after the era’s most iconic, lyrical lovers. Feed your soul at a unique Ovolo kitchen & bar concept, inspired by fresh and locally-sourced produce, ethical eating and conscious cuisine. Alongside seasonal cocktails and wines sourced from some of Australia’s most progressive producers. South Yarra – the cosmopolitan corner of Melbourne – has always had a rep for setting trends as a cultural hub of food, art and fashion. It’s the ultimate place for stepping out in style and living life as it should be. Ovolo South Yarra sets the scene for an extraordinary hotel experience embodying our philosophy of connecting with our customers emotionally and complementing the local cultural scene. It is anything but under-the-radar!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff(especially the manager & reception staff) were fantastic - so friendly & helpful. My wife’s phone was stolen (not at the hotel!!) and the staff could not have been more helpful. The room was delightful and the snacks & mini bar were a very nice touch. Thank you all so very much.

Hotel's Favourite
My partner and I had a one-night stay at Ovolo, and we can't fault it. The staff were very accommodating, responding to our phone request for wine glasses and ice to our room within 15 minutes. The hotel boasts amazing amenities like a complimentary lolly bar, a games area with a top-notch pool table, a free mini bar, and a laundry room at no cost. When we checked out, they kindly stored our luggage, enabling us to explore the surroundings unburdened. Its fantastic location near South Yarra station and coffee shops added to its charm.

From check in to check out our stay was amazing. After having one flight cancelled and a long day to get to Melbourne, Archer and Penelope went out of their way to make sure our stay was seamless and enjoyable. The quality of service here is outstanding. Friendly, professional and caring. Couldn’t recommend this place more. Great perks too like free Lolly bar and mini bar. We will be back.

Brilliantly located; fun decor; comfortable and extremely well-appointed room; everything worked and the staff were helpful and efficient. I should add that I checked in at about 2.30am+ on a Sunday morning. No problem. Great cup of coffee on the way out at 7.00am.

Funky hotel with great amenities and staff. The beds are super comfortable and the little free treats and daily complimentary mini bar top up is a great touch. Highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is well located close to chapel street with lots of food and drink options within walking distance.

It’s a really lovely hotel . Close to Chapel St and al, it has to offer. Very friendly vibe. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The mini bar is included in the price and is topped up daily. Staff are friendly and the Mona Lisa which is the on-site restaurant has great service and a lovely range of vegan / vegetarian food options.

My stay at South Yarra was by far the most enjoyable and pleasant stay I’ve had at a hotel chain in a very very very long time. Every staff member I interacted with were so nice and friendly and the small touches (like a card with a hard written note), made my stay. Well done for providing such an impeccable experience and I will be back for my fourth stay. I even ended up ordering the hair dryer as I was so impressed with it. The room was amazing (rock stair suite) and the bedding was to die for. The casting capabilities were also fantastic.
