We stayed in the Terrace Penthouse and it was excellent. the open mini bar and free gift bag with chips and treats was great. The full size punching... 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".

Ovolo is amazing! My boyfriend and I stayed here before going to Her Majesty's Theatre only a two minute walk away. 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...

This place suits a business person who just wants a room to go to bed and get out and go The noise from outside from about 5 am is really disturbing They advertise a happy hour but the space in this area on the ground floor would be uncomfortable with 6 people. Not for visitors on a holiday

Dear morse2014, Thanks for the review. I am sorry to hear you were awoken at 5am due to external noise, a room at the back of the property might be suited for another stay. As for the lobby area we are in the middle of renovating this space and creating a more lounge/bar like area to really encourage guests to... More

Enjoyed our stay thoroughly, loved all the free goodies. Loved the modern simple vibe and the staff were super friendly. Room was quiet and private with cool quirky touches. Subway tiles in the bathroom rocked. I want them in my bathroom.

Great to find a place which simply tries harder (and succeeds) to be better than the standards offered by everyone else. We had a 2 bedroom room suite which was funky, clean and very welcoming. The beds and pillows were unusually comfortable, and it was a nice touch to receive a goody bag and free minibar. Wifi was dependable and... More
