We stayed at Ovolo at Little Bourke St Melbourne for the weekend in July 2014 . Nice vibe, good sized room (25sqm) we liked the all in price approach. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice touches like the loot bag are fun. Only criticism is the quality of the white wine. In a country like Australia there really is no excuse... More

Dear Mike L Thanks for the review. I am glad to hear you had an overall great stay at the hotel. As for the wine.

Some of the reviews I had read made me nervous about booking this hotel, but as it turned out I had nothing to worry about. They had spacious, clean rooms. The hotel was very quiet despite the surrounding venues. Smart, cool, quirky decor made us all smile. Great value as the mini-bar, grab and go breaky and loot bag were... More

Dear holidayloverGeelong Many thanks for the great review! I am glad to hear that you came and experienced the hotel first hand. Social media sites are a great way for people to share their experiences and whilst we would hope that everyone loves our product we do understand this is not realistic and it may not appeal to every traveler...

Excellent location, close to theatres and quality restaurants and bars. Some reception staff were super friendly and helpful, and some quite rude and not helpful at all. We stayed for 2 nights and on our second day was hoping to squeeze in a nana nap at 3.45 pm as I was feeling a bit unwell. After being out all day... More

Hi, always enjoy staying here but air con needs serious attention. Sadly even though emails had been sent in advance re who was staying in which room (went with a group of friends) and payment details, this all proved to be a bit much for the person who checked us in. Enjoyed the "freebies".

Dear 280Ally_D, Thanks for the review. Sorry to hear there was some confusion around your check in, I will follow this up. As for the air con's, we are actually in the middle of installing new green systems. We have completed almost 2 floors, only 3 more to go. You must come back and check them out!

Upon arrival we were greeted by our first friendly staff member, who informed us of the complimentary minibar in our room - consisting of 2 beers, a white and red wine, sparkling water and 2 juices and, the free...
