All I have to save is this place meets your need and goes just few steps above expectations. From the friendly greetings from every staff member you walk past to get your room. Your walk in your room and first off the Air con is set to such a refreshing entry. Next your greeted with a lovely little welcome fruit platter on the the table….. that’s the extra few steps but then it gets better FREE MINI BAR!!! Yep no B/S How many places do that for you!!!! I don’t know any other but also you get bag of snacks complimentary as well. I stayed in the loft( which in my opinion the better choice) I spacious and everything is so user friendly it’s no fuss no muss. Rain showers are always my favourite so bonus there and the king size bed with the pillows literally made me feel like I was sleeping in clouds, one of my best night sleeps(other than my own bed) Kieron the way you greet and treat your guest and your staff is remarkable you have an amazing presence about you and always will make sure everyone’s needs are met, it’s nice to see someone with your experience do what they do with passion and enjoy it so much. I can’t thank you enough for letting me rest up here while I was in Sydney, I really enjoyed myself and look forward to my next trip to Sydney. Massive massive thanks to your staff as well Kia Kaha Ovolo

Hotel's Favourite
Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself has a young, cool vibe. All of the happy, shiny staff could not have been more accommodating. They got us into our room shortly after we exited our cruise ship in Sydney, well before the usual entry time. The rooms were super spacious. Beds and sheeting were most comfortable. Throw in free drinks and other goodies and you have a great experience. There are numerous great restaurants on the wharf right by the hotel. Location is great too. Near the Botanical Gardens and art museum. Cannot recommend this brand enough.

Overall, it's a great hotel but we unfortunately received a room without any windows at all. Just a skylight which was extremely hard to operate with a pole. The room was very expensive to not have the view that is pictured everywhere on the website. I would strongly recommend to everyone thinking of booking to make sure you do not get that room type as it is very gloomy. The rest of the hotel looks so good. Unfortunately we were left disappointed with the room and the price.

We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Ovolo, the space is amazing, industrial chic at it's best. The staff were so kind and attentive to everything we needed and the fact that the hotel is dog friendly gets brownie points, we brought our dog to the hotel and he even had his own dog bed and goodie bag waiting for him on check in. We stayed in the cityview loft suite, the room was incredibly spacious and clean, the bed not too soft, the hotel prides itself on offering a complimentary minibar as well as alot of freebies. ie 1 free drink during cocktail hour, candy bar at reception, free yoga mat and tote bag in room etc. In terms of noise, we did not hear any outside noises once we were in our room, it is incredibly well insulated.
