This is a hotel that has actually listened to what it's customers want. Free beer and wine at happy hour, free mini bar, free wi-fi, really nice rooms, great toiletries, friendly staff. Nothing more I could really ask for. Probably my favourite hotel in Melbourne.

We stayed as a group of five women in a studio and two bedroom apartment. Both had comfy beds, quality sheets and the rooms were immaculately clean. The apartment was large enough for the five of us to meet each morning for breakfast or evening for drinks. The staff were helpful in encouraging you to take fresh pastries and coffee... More

I stayed at the Ovolo on Little Bourke Street for a week on a business trip which included a short holiday at the end and couldn't think a better place to stay in Melbourne for both types of visit. The location is fantastic - an easy walk to any part of the city or Southbank, close to fantastic restaurants, cafes... More

We stayed in a two bedroom room with two teenagers aged 15 and 17. Facilities were great and the location meant the streets were wonderfully quiet at night. The free minibar was well stocked with Mexican beer, water bottles and different flavoured sparkling fruit juices. There is a coffee machine with nespresso pods in the foyer and fully stocked bar...

We have stayed in this hotel three times. It is located close the Parliament house end of the CBD and within easy walking distance of the Collins Street shops and the Botanical gardens. There are dozens of restaurants in the surrounding area and Pelligrini's and other coffee bars metres away. The rooms are a comfortable size (we stayed in a... More

Start with the positives. Great location. Funky decor. service was average and to be honest seemed they lacked training. Bathroom was pokey and going to bed revealed the doona had no cover just a top sheet folded over it. When I pulled the doona back there were blood stains on it. Absolutely feral for the price. Woken various times in... More

Prior to this occasion I had stayed at Ovolo twice before in a 2 bedroom room and sang it's praises far and wide. These rooms were spacious, light, modern, clean and combined with the brilliant location of the hotel, my first choice when staying in Melbourne. This was the first visit with my husband and we booked a one bedroom... More

The ovolo exceeded our expectations and was a great choice for our first trip to Melbourne. The rooms and service were faultless and the location is hard to beat for access to the cities site and attractions. Plenty of great cafes and restaurants within short walking distance. The happy hour, actually made me happy! Keep up the great work.
