Found this place through luxury escapes and it has to be the best accomodation we have ever stayed in, in Sydney. The staff when we arrived were so friendly and the look of the place is sensational. Full of old quaint 70's touches with the decor and the music. Can't complain about the free mini bar and free happy hour...

Stayed here for our birthday weekend... Venue outstanding ( old wool shed renovated in a eclectic style)... Value for money, outstanding ( 1 hr free pour happy hour drinks and canapés and breakfast included each morning of our stay) ...

We had a great stay at the Ovolo. From the moment we entered til our late checkout, we felt special. The staff make this place. Nothing is a problem. Close enough to the city and the Rocks to do your sightseeing and shopping but you can escape the hustle and bustle when you return and relax in a beautiful place....

Am staying at this hotel right now. I feel like we have the TV on in our room as we can hear the one in the adjoining room just as clearly. My one bugbear with hotels is noise. I do not want to know what other occupants are up to! Number one priority for me is soundproofing. Hope I get...

Dear cat063__11, 😩😩😩 Arghhhhhhhh.... I am devastated reading your review. You should have let us know at the time. We would have done anything in our power to help.

Ovolo, you did it again! The staff are outstanding, rooms are clean and modern and the location, second to none. We enjoyed a lovely weekend playing tourists in Sydney. Make sure you take the time to catch a ferry to Manly, it was great to be out on the harbour. We will definitely stay at Ovolo again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location, space, views – have it all when you stay at Ovolo Woolloomooloo. Stretched along the longest timber-piled wharf in the world, the hotel is situated over the picturesque Sydney Harbour on the outskirts of Sydney CBD. A boutique hotel, bar and event center, Ovolo Woolloomooloo bridges between history and modern luxury. The architectural design of this heritage listed property is a truly breathtaking sight with its stunning French windows neatly placed in rows along the building, stylishly framed by the signature teal coloring. As you enter the hotel, contemporary design elements and furnishings complement original fixtures of the property, with seamless integration of the Ovolo touch – all the little things that make effortless living a reality for the modern, tech-savvy traveler. Journey through the 100 rooms and suites and you’ll find that each one tells a uniquely Australian story, portrayed through a series of art pieces cleverly infused into the interior design features. A short stroll from the hotel will get you to iconic attractions like the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay, as well as popular restaurants and waterholes right on the wharf or in the surrounding suburbs. But really, who needs to go anywhere when your room rate already includes everything? Continental breakfast*, Wi-Fi, mini bar, self-service laundry, happy hour*, 24 hour indoor pool & gym? – Yep, all free. ... more   less
