Knew nothing about Sydney when we booked, but a great find. A repurposed wharf, with restaurants around the outside, and rooms around the inside, with the restaurant and bar at the center, with the entire inside open to the sky-lighted roof. Apparently the restaurants on the wh

First - do your reservations directly from their website to get best options.
Second - I love the humor. Candy dishes at the check in. Door sign that says “Go ahead and make my bed!”
Third - it was my birthday the day before and when we went to our room after dinner, we found a b

The decor of the Ovolo Woolloomooloo was totally our thing. Industrial with a hint of chic flowing through it.

Unfortunately once the novelty of the impressive visuals wore off there isn’t much to recommend.

Construction was occurring in the main area near the bar and finding

Response from David_Sude, General Manager at Ovolo Woolloomooloo
Responded 6 days ago
Hey Simon W, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. The construction you mention in your review lasted for 7 days and is now complete. I am sorry us moving the entrance to the bar was an inconvenience to you. As for your rate and the Tesla transfer, your comments are inaccurate. The Tesla transfer is charged at $160 on top of the rate and it of course only run for the day of the transfer and not on any other days. Also there are zero benefits on booking via Wotif as we charge the exact same rates on our website and we offer complimentary breakfast and complimentary social hour in the evening with complimentary drinks and nibbles which you wouldn't get booking through any online travel platforms. I hope the above clarify your concerns about the rate you paid whilst staying with us. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you choose to stay with us on your next trip to Sydney. I will personally ensure you get the best available rate. Cheers, David Sude General Manager

Stayed overnight for our wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. Everything from the great breakfast, complimentary mini bar, and them bringing a vase to our room for my flowers. Highly recommend booking direct via their website for additional perks. Swimming pool and gym a

An excellent choice for a good hotel right next to the botanical garden. Service is good and the converted pier is quite impressive. Rooms are contemporary with a twist. Many good restaurants around the corner on the pier itself.

How far from Qudos Arena?
If you search Rome To Rio you'll get a good idea; more than an hour by train, maps says 30 mins by Uber but I'd allow an hour, and extra driving time if there's a special event on. HTH

Hello is it easy to get to The Domain from you for a concert?
Hi Michelle, The entry of the domain is less roughly 50 meters away from the entrance of the hotel. Depending where the concert is but realistically it shouldn't take you any longer than 10 to 15 minutes walk. Taxis are always available outside the hotel also. Hope this helps. Cheers, DS

We would love to book this hotel but we won’t be hiring a car in Sydney. How easy/Safe is it to get about (particularly after dark)? For example if we wanted to take in a show at the Opera House or go for a meal in The Rocks would it be safe and straightforward to walk back? Is the Botanic Gardens well lit at night?
Being a large city means i would play safe and hire a cab/uber once you are out of the main tourist spots no matter where you stay so dont let it put you off considering this hotel.
