Absolutely brilliant! Love the whole concept of the place. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I can't say anything negative at all. Loved the happy hours, and the complimentary goodies bag on arrival . How great that the mini bar is totally free, AND gets replenished every day!

Wi-Fi,loot bag, contents of the mini fridge: all included in the price. Good location. Clean, neat and a little quirky inside. Bed a bit hard and somewhat uncomfortable, but couldn't complain about another thing. Would stay again.

Stayed in 2 bedroom apartment, rooms have great natural light and are fitted out with funky yet minimal design. Appreciated the welcome loot bag of goodies and complimentary minibar (juice, water, beer and wine) in the room. Breakfast pastries / coffee on the run in the morning was also a very nice touch. Great location for restaurants and theatre not... More

Great hotel. Had the 2 bedroom apartment which was roomy and comfortable. Beds very comfortable. Would be ideal for a stay for the Melbourne theatre, on the edge of Chinatown. Beautiful added touches like Danish's for breakfast, yummy. Will stay here again. The only negative was the bathroom sink.

Three middle aged ladies holidaying for four night stay in a two bedroom apartment. Had a very enjoyable stay, very efficient and friendly staff. On the outer edge of Chinatown, there was little street noise. Free minibar including juice, mineral water, wine and beer was appreciated.

Enjoyed our stay at the Ovolo in Melbourne. Well locate and close to great restaurants, cafes and theatres. Really appreciated the complimentary "on-the-run" breakfast and the free mini-bar stocked daily. Will stay here again.

We weren't sure what to expect, but loved our stay. The decor was modern, inviting and comfortable. Service unassuming but helpful. Free minibar was a nice addition, though we had a little trouble logging onto the free wifi at first. We had a 1Br apartment. Very comfortable bed, the shower was heaven. Though the hotel's location is great, the only... More

We stayed here on the final leg of our Australian visit. Great rooms, with a nice modern feel. Brilliant location for all the shops and bars in Melbourne. Would definitely recommend it and use it again.
