Ovolo Wooloomooloo is a nice, modern, trendy hotel, built into a previous wharf building which has been renovated and refunctioned to house several good restaurants (noteworthy are Otto a nice Italian and Kingsley's a nice steak/seafood restaurant) and the Ovolo hotel. The rooms are good size, fresh, clean, modern, bright, with large floor...

I have travelled the world and stayed in lots of hotel. This one beats them all. Service. Amenities. It is 2017 so they have almost as many USB ports as electricity outlets! And provide 2 adapters. Finally, a mini bar filled with water, beer, wine and sodas you can drink at no extra cost. What they put in the room...

This hotel was fantastic it's in a very good spot over looking the water and all the restaurants outside along the pier. The room was very nice and all the staff are very friendly even the breakfast staff down stairs they walk around singing and doing a little dance on the side. Just a great establishment.

The Ovolo at Woolloomooloo is second to none. We would not stay anywhere else in Sydney now that we have stayed there. It is very central and close to the city - a short stroll through the Botanical Gardens, but far enough away from the concrete jungle that you feel like you are getting a break from the hustle 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
