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.

A goodie bag in our room on arrival which had chocolates, chips and lollies. Room had complimentary beer, wine, water and mineral water which... More

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.

Excellent hotel with great service and facilities, my husband and our 3 children stayed and it was perfect for us. Situated close to restaurants, CBD and PT which made it easy with the kids and they loved the loot bag & grab and go breakfast!

We stayed for three nights mid week in April. The staff were great, the location was great. The breakfast/mini bar/loot bag was a great touch. I felt the room was a little worn/tired... Plenty of scuffs on the walls etc. and older feeling linen. My partner said I was being picky!
