Recently stayed at Ovolo Laneways during a short business trip. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Penthouse Room. I know why Ovolo call it the OMG room! Great artwork, loads of extras (wii U, Apple TV, iPod, full size boxing bag with gloves!), free mini-bar, snacks etc. The bed and pillows were soooo comfy. Staff were exceptional... More

We stayed two nights on the second floor of this quirky little hotel. One of the attractive elements (apart from convenient location) was the all included price. The hotel says breakfast is included but this is actually a "grab and go" style breakfast. My advice - don't sleep in, otherwise it all goes (and if you do get up early,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a king suite. Rooms were really nice, funky decor and perks such as free mini bar, coffee and light breakfast- muffin or Danish. Location is perfect for Chinatown and shopping. Staff friendly. The only downside was our air con was really noisy so we didn't sleep as well as we would have liked to.

Hip, modern hotel with cool décor, funky local artwork everywhere and great amenities: Franke coffee machine in the lobby, free stocked mini bar, grab-and-go breakfast and social happy hour. The extremely knowledgeable staff went out of their way to help us with directions and dining suggestions. The Ovolo was a convenient home base to explore Melbourne and the Yarra Valley.

A great hotel with fantastic offerings and great staff to match. We enjoyed staying here for my wife's birthday. Comfortable beds, great showers. Small bathroom but sufficient to do what you need to. Only negative is cleaning could be better. The room was very dusty and attention to detail cleaning wasn't done. More than happy to stay here again however!... More

We found the Ovolo a great hotel, with complimentary bar and happy hour, and the grab and go breakfast was great when you wanted something light and on the go. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Stayed here for a 3 night weekend. Efficient check-in and friendly staff. Comfortable bed and pillows. We did ask if the heating could be turned up - I had a shower to warm myself up. We went out shopping for the day and came back for a couple of hours before we headed out to dinner. The temp was set... More

All I can say is WOW, the rooms were fantastic, included extras at no extra charge, staff was more than accommodating and to top it all off located next to a restaurant that specialised in craft beer and parmigiana's! I will... More
