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!

My daughter and I stayed at the Ovolo recently whilst we were wedding dress shopping. The front staff were young and friendly and the room very clean and large. We loved the bathroom products and the free mini bar, though we only used the water. The loot bag was a great touch. The best thing was the perfect location. Just... More

Excellent hotel located close to many great bars, restaurants and coffee shops literally around the corner or at the end of the street! Best parts: location, friendly staff willing to go the extra mile, design of the hotel, free breakfast, mini bar, wifi and I could go on.. Only complaint if any is that it seemed a bit noisy on...

My last hotel in Melbourne was the dreadful Mercure Welcome (do not stay there!) so I was thrilled with the fabulous Ovolo. It is exactly what I like in a city like Melbourne where you spend most of your time outside the hotel - close to the action (right in between Longrain, Madame Brussels and Grossi Florentino - what more...

Great little modern hotel with good separate lounge space, quirky extras like lot bag, nice silk herbal tea bags, bean bag, really good central location, fairly quiet. Only down side tiny bathroom with very small useless basin but nice big shower. Would stay here again.

We stayed at the Ovolo hotel in a two bedroom suite for 4 nights and had a fantastic stay. The room was very clean and was serviced every day with fresh towels and a mini bar top up. The free mini bar was a fantastic idea, definitely came in handy for pre-dinner drinks. The grab and go breakfast was also... More

Perfect weekend away. Grab and go breakfast was a hit and the location is within walking distance from all that Melbourne has to offer. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Will be telling all my friends to book there in future.

We stayed at Ovolo at Little Bourke St Melbourne for the weekend in July 2014 . Nice vibe, good sized room (25sqm) we liked the all in price approach. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice touches like the loot bag are fun. Only criticism is the quality of the white wine. In a country like Australia there really is no excuse... More
