Friends from Adelaide recommended this hotel so we booked 2 nights in a Cityvoo Room. Nice views and I specifically asked for a higher floor. Hotel location is convenient to both Darlinghurst where we ate both nights with friends and the city center sights are a 20 minute walk through the adjacent park. The room was large and very up-to-date... More

It is not often I get a kick from a hotel but the Ovolo Woolloomooloo (Sydney) is one such place and I just had to share my experience with you. This 5 star contemporary hotel is ideally located at Woolloomooloo for the business or leisure traveller. The beauty of this location, compared to a city centre hotel, is the quiet... More

Spent four nights here in a city view room and it was great watching the sun go down and the city light up. Good location with some really great restaurants downstairs and more casual places across the road. I found parking on the street each night within a five minute walk so there wasn't a need to pay for parking.... More

People seem to worship this place on here, so... did this hotel live up to the hype? Yes...it did. Many really thoughtful touches added up to a very relaxing, easy and sleek stay. This company obviously puts thought into their product. Apple TV...so simple yet so useful. I can't tell you how many times I stay at a hotel who... More

Denver, Love your feedback! It is always a relief when we pass the 'hype' test. Sounds like we passed with flying colours. The clock 'art' is the only one in the southern hemisphere. It was flown over and installed from it's birthplace of Sweden. It costs approximately $200,000. I am sure you would be able to get one for yourself... More

From lollies to snacks, drinks to meal, pool to hot tup. A cozy ceanarium for a special day and night 4th years anniversary relationship. And for free, a nhammy breakfast to cure a hangover and beautiful smiles everywhere from kindly staffs. We love it, thanks Ovolo crew!!

Amazing place to stay. Loved the location on the wharf which had a chilled vibe and was right next to the botanical gardens. Easy walk across parks to town or opera house etc. Hotel brand spanking new and I have to say it was the little things that made it special. Friendly staff (without exception), goodies in the room, free... More
