Everything about this hotel is fabulous. I was greeted by the gorgeous Arielle. Nothing was a problem for Arielle, she was there the whole 3 days I was there and it was such a breath of fresh air to be greeted and helped by her each day. The Ovolo Woolloomooloo is very lucky to have her :)

Hotel's Favorite
Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself has a young, cool vibe. All of the happy, shiny staff could not have been more accommodating. They got us into our room shortly after we exited our cruise ship in Sydney, well before the usual entry time. The rooms were super spacious. Beds and sheeting were most comfortable. Throw in free drinks and other goodies and you have a great experience. There are numerous great restaurants on the wharf right by the hotel. Location is great too. Near the Botanical Gardens and art museum. Cannot recommend this brand enough.

The team made me feel like I was part of a family, incredibly helpful and welcoming. The facility is great, very modern, very clean and well maintained and the location is amazing, so close to great restaurants. I will be choosing to stay every time when visiting the city.

By far the best experience and service we had ever encountered. The staff were sensational in every interaction. The hotel is very grand and so well maintained and curated. Every little details have been thought of. Loads of funky things throughout. I could not recommend this hotel enough. If you are looking for a well deserved break from this pandemic, this is the place to do it. The service is exceptional.

I loved this property! Its such a great location on the wharf surrounded by restaurants and pubs and only a short relaxing walk around the harbour for city views. The room was well appointed, service outstanding and I love the little extra that Ovolo include free with every stay. Wouldn't hesitate to come backQ
