    Location was central, we were given a room upgrade and late check out, so very pleased

    Cool decor, friendly staff & mini bar.

    The free mini bar and grab and go breakfast was fantastic. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We have already recommended to friends and family.

    10 out of 10 Everything- they have just got it right. Free internet, free mini bar, apple TV in the room and at a comparatively good price fir the Melbourne CBD.

    Does not distract from the top mark but does not have car parking in the building. I parked just outside the hotel.

  • Older travelers

    Great location and great suite apartment. Grab and go breakfast was a good idea. Very stylish and would definitely stay here again.

    Lack of natural light but accept the fact that we were to the rear of the building which had it's benefits by being quiet. Bathroom space around the sink area was too small in terms of having somewhere to put your own toiletries and for my partner a bit difficult to shave.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We really enjoyed our stay. Very helpful staff. The hotel is close to the park and nice restaurants and cafes. We will be happy to stay at Ovolo again.

    Nothing :)

    Location, atmosphere and value for money are excellent.

    The sink in the bathroom was so small that it was almost unusable. The air ventilation opening in the bathroom was covered with dust.

    Liked the no hassle free mini bar and breakfast. Excellent helpful and friendly staff.

    Needing card for lift became tiresome.

    The free mini bar and grab bag The staff The room facilities The location was excellent

    The lobby needs air conditioning for the staff

  • Group of friends

    Staff friendly and helpful. Well looked after.

    The noise from local venues was very intrusive into the early hours. I also don't like having to state in this review what I travelled as. This is none of your business and should include an opt out of this question. I did not complete the correct option. You have just blown any recommendation I might have given. Including on trip advisor.

  • Group of friends

    every thing about the hotel was great. staff were friendly and accomadating. the extras ie. mini bar, grab n go breaky and loot bag was an added bonus. penthouse was exceptional. had all the comforts one would expect.

    the only disapointment was we were double booked on one of the 3 nites, and had to move in and out of the penthouse. very inconvinient, could not settle in properly. dont know who is to blame, (hotel blames Booked.net and Booked.net blames hotel) but a formal complaint has be made.
