We have now stayed at this hotel on three occasions, the latest of which was at the beginning of this month and it is now the only place we stay in Sydney. Great position, excellent staff and a genuinely happy place.

This is a happy place; it's also fun, flirty, sexy. I feel years younger when I stay at Ovolo. The international staff are young or young-at-heart, individually stylish, 'themselves' in all the right ways, and so, so welcoming, helpful and good at what they do. This vibe extends to the decor: hip, funky, colourful AND comfy. Freebies include a really...

The hotel is very well conceived under any point of view: design, marketing, offer, quality and service. You feel welcomed, the place is cool and the neighborhood is gentrifying. Only hic is breakfast: the place is a bit cold and anonymous and the quality is average.

Dear Ele, Thanks very much for your feedback on your recent Ovolo experience. I am glad that there was so much that you enjoyed. I take on board your comments on breakfast.

This is an incredibly beautiful Hotel and by far the best we've stayed at in Sydney. The foyer is stunning, modern, chic and interesting. It is located on a beautiful old wharf with lovely restaurants nearby and right beside the Navy ships which are fascinating. The hop on hop off bus stops right outside and it's well worth the tour...

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
