Plenty of competition in Melbourne for the accommodation dollar and based on previous Trip Advisor comments, we chose the Ovolo. Lived up to those comments and met our every need at a very reasonable rate for the spacious 1 bedroom apartment on level 3. Simply awesome service & assistance from the staff (including looking after luggage after checkout before our... More

I stayed at the Ovolo on Little Bourke during a recent visit to Melbourne and can't recommend it highly enough. It's perfectly centrally located for visitors arriving from Flinders Street station and all Melbourne has to offer. It's great value for money, the rooms are spacious, funky and well equipped, the swag bag and grab-n-go breakfasts are a fabulous idea... More

Really enjoyed the fresh look & feel of this hotel. Decor was spot on, loved the goodies bag & complementary drinks. The staff were friendly & helpful. Couldn't have asked for more. We'll definately stay here again.

Apologies for tardiness. I stayed at the Ovolo in July 2013, just realised I hadn't reviewed! I was in Melbourne for a mere (and not long enough) 24hrs on my way home to NZ after the 3 months backpacking in SEA. On arrival I was upgraded to a two bedroom 'apartment', Woohoo, thanks!

Had research a few hotels within Melbourne CBD and decided to stay with Ovolo for 6 nights in their Studio Room.

The Ovolo in Melbourne is a lovely hotel that is well equipped with things you might normally have to pay extra for. Decent size rooms, friendly staff, free wifi and free mini bar make this a great stay. The bed is comfortable and large.
