We were in this hotel, located in the CBD of Melbourne and in the heart of Chinatown over New Year's. When we did the reservation and checked the online site we pretty much came to understand what place this is, and what services are offered. What I liked about this hotel is the location (ideal for exploring the city), the... More

We had a great time staying here. It was close to the river, theatres, restaurants, trams, shops and parks. We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was quiet and comfortable. The mini bar is stocked each day and included in the price. There is a sweets buffet available all day (we had to ration the children who were in heaven).... More

Well, when i booked i requested a high floor quiet room, you would think that would be a hard but it was. I was put on the 1st floor above the restaurant and in a room with paper thin walls. At midnight the party kicked in next door, i spoke with the manager and to his credit did speak to... More

Sure this may be on your slightly more expensive side but it is well worth splashing the cash for this place. From the free minibar, happy hour and breakfast to the extensive range of free offerings in the rooms, you cannot fault this place. I stayed in a one bedroom room and it was well sized with more than enough... More

This is a great place to stay in the heart of Melbourne, offers those little extras complimentary wifi, buffet breafast, and room bar that make so much differance. Most hotels rinse their guests with the extras, but not Ovolo. Chic boutique hotel.
