It's not often a hotel in Austrlalia meets expectations, little surpasses them. The Ovollo exceeded my expectation, even after getting excited reading their website. Staff were welcoming and their natural desire to make the experience amazing shone through. I have booked another stay already and am even more excited now I know what's coming.

This is the best part of Sydney to stay in and the hotel has a fresh young approach. Avoid Darling Harbour and stay here in the warehouse European style hotel right on the wharf where an amazing array of restaurants are. Easy walk up to Potts Point. Good quality all round.

From the moment you walk in you are hit with a fun vibe! The hotel is unusual and a welcome change from the other high end hotels. Bianca at reception was especially helpful and patient while sorting out our room. Juan and the Brazilians at the bar were tons of fun!

From the moment you arrive and see the grand old building on the wharf, the porters dressed like golf caddy’s and an entrance which has trees lit up you realise that this isn’t going to be your average hotel. The most surprising thing with the hotel except its funky décor and colour scheme is how effortless it all is, walking... More

I chose this hotel based on the great reviews here, and boy was I disappointed. I will list my complaints in chronological order: 1. I was not given the room I booked. I booked a Deluxaroo King room but was given a Loft room. While the hotel viewed this as an “upgrade”, I specifically did NOT want the Loft room... More

It was the afternoon after Melbourne Cup and the Wharf was buzzing, lots of people finishing off long lunches and my group was drawn into the Ovolo Hotel for a cocktail at the Lo Lounge. The surrounds are stunning but the bar service appalling. When we arrived I wondered why there wasn't anyone there ... well soon found out. There... More

From checking in to checking out I loved this property. Staff were great - a relaxed yet professional attitude and nothing was too much of a problem - the people were switched on and engaged in what they do and you can feel it. The whole 3 night stay was seamless. There was no need to "admit" minibar usage (its... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location, space, views – have it all when you stay at Ovolo Woolloomooloo. Stretched along the longest timber-piled wharf in the world, the hotel is situated over the picturesque Sydney Harbour on the outskirts of Sydney CBD. A boutique hotel, bar and event center, Ovolo Woolloomooloo bridges between history and modern luxury. The architectural design of this heritage listed property is a truly breathtaking sight with its stunning French windows neatly placed in rows along the building, stylishly framed by the signature teal coloring. As you enter the hotel, contemporary design elements and furnishings complement original fixtures of the property, with seamless integration of the Ovolo touch – all the little things that make effortless living a reality for the modern, tech-savvy traveler. Journey through the 100 rooms and suites and you’ll find that each one tells a uniquely Australian story, portrayed through a series of art pieces cleverly infused into the interior design features. A short stroll from the hotel will get you to iconic attractions like the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay, as well as popular restaurants and waterholes right on the wharf or in the surrounding suburbs. But really, who needs to go anywhere when your room rate already includes everything? Continental breakfast*, Wi-Fi, mini bar, self-service laundry, happy hour*, 24 hour indoor pool & gym? – Yep, all free. ... more   less
