In Sydney overnight on business. Ovolo Woolloomooloo was the perfect place to stay. Just off the beaten track, but within a few minutes of the CBD by taxi. Spacious rooms, great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Our first ever visit to Australia from the UK, it was the perfect place from which to explore Sydney for 3 days. Wonderful facilities included e.g. mini bar, happy hour, pool and relaxation area -just needed more time to fully make use of them all!!!

From start to finish my friend and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Ovolo. We came to have a five day break, see a show and visit friends. We were very centrally located and so walked to the CBD (15min) Botanical Gardens, Opera House, across the Bridge and to the Ferry terminal to catch the Manly Ferry! The...

I love staying here, i'm never disappointed. The staff are always delightful, the decor is chic, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The mini bar is free, there's apple TV, and there are delicious restaurants right at your footstep.

Rooms was impeccably clean, breakfast incl, drinks and canapés overnight incl, as much fruit, tea, coffee, snacks as you like and free minibar restocked. The hotel was spectacular, great location to walk everywhere. Service was friendly and efficient. We had a 50th party there and kids were made to feel welcome and enjoy the amenities.

Helpful, happy staff. Lovely big rooms and free mini bar. Modern bathrooms with showers and bath in our twin double room, very spacious compared to other hotels in the City. Botanical garden opposite so a short stroll to the Opera House & bridge. Close to city centre. Loved it, would definitely come back.

We had two nights here, wish it was longer. We had a loft room looking towards the city. The room was spacious, with a large lounge at the lower level, complete with huge corner couch to relax on and enjoy the views. The continental breakfast was great, as were the little touches like happy hour drinks, mini bar, snacks and...

We highly enjoyed our night at Ovolo. The loft room we chose was perfect, with funky decorations, a comfortable bed, and lots of freebie amenities -- it's the little things that matter! With over a half dozen restaurants on the wharf just below, we found ourselves with less meals than choices -- so, we'll just have to go back and...

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
