Just had a weekend stay at the Ovolo Hotel and loved every minute, service great and staff went out of their way in everything they did, rooms clean and tidy and overall hotel feel was quirky, vibrant and fun to be in. Every detail had been thought about and loved the touches including free goodie bag, day back pack, inclusive...

Excellant Location! Great Staff! Fabulous Freebies! This is "Hip and Happening" but also like coming home to a family you want to belong to. Very cool decor. Staff is alwats smiling! For a busy location you get a quiet great nights sleep. I could just move in and stay forever.

Booked this hotel as a birthday treat for my daughter, who is traveling through Ozz. We are in the U.K. The booking was handled by email with a lady called Alicia. Who was super helpful with all aspects of the booking including on site parking. My daughter has stayed at the Ovolo in Melbourne so she knew what to expect....

Spent a week at the Woolloomooloo in March. The staff could not have been better--above and beyond for the entire visit. Great location--restaurants line Finger Wharf and it is a short walk to the Potts Point neighborhood. Amenities abound at the hotel from the free minibar to the welcome goody bag to free washer/dryer access for the guests. The only...

Absolutely love Ovolo Kind people. Really comfortable with all luxury amenities, but doesn't feel over the top. The building itself is breathtaking. The lobby makes you want to use the many communal areas which makes it a funky, social place. I will definitely be back! Keep doing what you're doing!

Other 5 star hotels are boring and feel crowded compared to this one. It has everything the others have on steroids. The service was impeccable, from check in, to check out to concierge. Nothing was too much trouble, always smiling. Have not seen the hotel since it was a "W", and it blew me away. It is chic, sophisticated, and...

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Hi Vicki V, "Did you have anything from the minibar?" How many times have you heard this staying at hotels, right? Well, not at Ovolo! What I read is exactly how we want our guests to feel. We are a pretty cool hotel but we are definitely not too cool for school and want our guests to feel happy...

LOVED this hotel! Rooms were clean, tons of restaurants in the hotel, easy walk through the botanical gardens to the opera house! Only thing we wished were that the windows open but that was small compared to how great the hotel was.

Wow these guys know how to go the extra mile! This is the place to stay in Sydney if you want something more than ordinary or mundane as some high rating hotels tend to be . We stayed in the AC/DC suite ( which was an upgrade) and from the neon lights to the two storey space it didn't disappoint....

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
