We had a two bedroom apartment for the night which also had a lovely loung in a mod style. The location is great being close to Greek and Chinese restaurants and the tram is a block away. The staff were friendly and we just liked the fact the the price you paid included a free mini bar with beer and... More

This hotel is definitely a true 4 star plus. It is a funky little boutique hotel in a great central Melbourne location. From the moment we walked into the foyer we were wowed. The front of house staff were very welcoming, professional and explained the unique "all inclusive" policy the hotel operates by. This includes free unlimited wifi, complimentary Nespresso... More

We were really excited about staying here, it looked fresh and modern and fun. BUT we wouldn't come back :( Booked a 2br apartment with friends, so 2 couples. Arrived after our friends, they were out and we were surprised to see their luggage in the lounge room. After a quick recon, it became apparent that they just couldn't fit... More

This hotel is most definitely not 4+ star. Staff on front desk could not recommend any local restaurants, room was not well maintained and bathroom had not been cleaned fully 4+ boutique hotel would expect a hotel robe as standard. The towels were thin and would of been better used for cleaning. The mini bar and 'Malin + Goetz' toiletries... More

Stayed during the f1 weekend, the staff was great and accommodating. The only thing was the AC doesn't work! For 300$ a night you expect the AC to work perfectly. The staff tried to do everything they can, even move us to a different room, but the AC still didn't work. Would've been ok if they had working windows but... More

We stayed here as a couple for 11 days for my partner's getaway/ late birthday celebration! Ovolo is a really great hotel for its location! It's pretty central in Melbourne CBD and everything is really easily accessible by tram or a short walk. The freebies are amazing (Loot bag! mini-bar, wifi, drinks hour, grab and go breakfast). The water that... More

We chose Ovolo due to their mention in the New York Times and their reasonable rates on Grand Prix weekend. We were looking for something laid back and central, and it was a great choice. The location was perfect at the end of Little Bourke Street and walking distance to Fitzroy, Lygon Street, Flinders Street Station, and lots more. Their... More

Ths staff are fantastic, helpful, friendly and willing to accomodate your needs (like wanting to check in early because you're dog tired, and giving helpful information about the local area!).
