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.

Arriving at Ovolo was immediately impressive, from the flowers and pretty lights to the friendly staff who greeted me after a late evening flight. The room was beautifully lit when entering and the free mini bar and munchie bag was a welcomed treat for a hungry traveller. It was very clean, with everything one would need and spacious too. The bed was so comfortable, and the big fluffy pillows were a pleasant surprise as I usually travel with my own pillow to avoid headaches. There was also the option to choose pillows to suit your preferences. The complimentary sweets cart in the lobby was a guilty pleasure frequently indulged upon throughout my stay and the proximity to local restaurants along the warf at Wooloomooloo made the location ideal. Ovolo really go out of their way to cater to their guests and I look forward to staying with them again in the future.

Hotel's Favourite
The most beautiful hotel in the perfect spot in sydney. The decor gives Hunger Games Capital X Alice In Wonderland masterpiece, and such a nice change to the normal stuffy hotel vibe. Such cute touches with the candy bar, complimentary mini bar and happy hour drinks PLUS a very reasonably priced room service menu + delicious coffee in the cafe on the second floor. The room was gorgeous with beautiful ammenities and a very comfortable bed (tall person approved!). I could not recommend the Ovolo enough for a mid week staycation or trip to sydney - it’s an ideal location!

The best! 10/10 again! Ovolo never disappoints. Service, rooms, value for money, food - everything was outstanding. I went with friends for a weekend away and could not have been happier. I refuse to stay anywhere else in Sydney. Affordable luxury at its best.

A lovely experience! Visiting from the UK on my own to see family and received a great welcome, the room was so spacious and clean with a wonderful view and such a comfy bed. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and the breakfasts absolutely delicious. I loved being able to walk around the harbour from the doorstep and access lots of cool places - including the Opera House and Potts Point - on foot. I used the pool which was great and restaurants along the quay - such a treat. This was my third visit and I'm returning again soon, so a real home from home.

This place is just great and rather quirky. A high grade place but not at a high grade price. Set in an old woollen warehouse on a beautiful wharf adjacent to the botanical gardens (15 minutes walk to the Opera House) the hotel, private apartments and good restaurants ate housed in this one building. From the lovely welcome from friendly, helpful and professional staff to an indoor pool/gym area and to a bar area where we had a beautifully prepared, unfussy breakfast. (They managed to secure a booking for 8 on a Saturday night at China Doll when it was full!) The room was a good size, well appointed, albeit short of cupboard space, with a great view over the water. We want to go back……tomorrow!

We paid a very high amount of money to stay there and the bedding arrangement was awful. The sofa bed was seriously not ok. We took turn sleeping on it and whoever got it had a horrible night sleep. I really feel that for the price they charged us, the hotel could have made an effort to either buy or rent a proper bed. Nobody on the Saturday night after we came back from the concert would bother picking up the phone. We eventually gave up and flew back home Sunday morning not feeling rested at all. We all wish we had stayed elsewhere :(

I have been coming here for many years, even before it was Ovolo and have always immediately felt at home. It is magical to be living in this former industrial harbour wharf, almost in the water. I love that it is super 5-star comfy, yet also totally modern and fun. Bed and linens and pillows dreamy. Service fantastic. Incredible restaurants on the doorstep. Love all the things in the room from the free mini bar to the treats and the slippers and robe. Great water pressure in the shower and lovely toiletries. The swimming pool and outside private chilling area with the cabanas to relax in is heaven. I cannot say enough good things about the Ovolo. Thank you Cavin and all the team! Coline
