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.

If you like funky boutique hotels you will like this place. Modern rooms, clean and spacious. It doesn't have a hotel restaurant or bar but you don't need it, the location is perfect for accessing the best bars and restaurants in Melbourne. It is close to the tram, walking distance from good shopping and key sights. The hotel staff are... More

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

Stayed 3 nights recently with the Wife in this terrific boutique Hotel, fourth floor room fronting on Little Bourke Street. Yes it is susceptible to outside noise but not unreasonably so given its close proximity to small bars, restaurants and the like. Staff were under the pump when we arrived but still managed to be courteous and efficient and the... More

It's pretty average but ok value. Rooms are a good size but bathrooms are tiny. If you're a light sleeper it can be difficult as the hotel isn't soundproof at all. Service was ok but only ok. Location is great though.

Dear rtw99, Sorry to hear that your stay was not 100% but glad to hear the location was ideal. Please keep in mind for any future stays that then 1 and 2 bedroom rooms are of substantial size which includes a bigger bathroom than the Studio and Studio Suite rooms. The back of the property is also much quieter as... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Ovolo in Little Bourke St twice now and love it. It's small and stylish, great service and unique personality. It's perfectly located for walking to bars, restaurants theatres etc. Great little city escape.

We recently stayed in a two bedroom suite at the Ovolo with our 5 and 8 year old and we all loved it. They have literally thought of everything! The staff were helpful and friendly and it was great that they offered a flexible check out. We spent our last day in the city and checked out at 3pm which... More
