We came to Sydney for a weekend which also happened to be our wedding anniversary. We were upgraded to a loft room which gave us more space. The free mini bar was great and restocked every day. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They even...More
Mixed feelings about this hotel. Nice location but nothing was amazing enough to justify the price. Firstly the room. They are SMALL. It isn’t very well described on Expedia how small they actually are. The view was the one of an overpass so our room...More
Everything was amazing. The welcome, the room, the atmosphere.
If you book direct you also get free happy hour, free mini-bar and breakfast. Well worth it.
Great location too on Darling Harbour and a short walk into the city.
Staff were so attentive and friendly...More
I’d never heard of Ovolo Hotels before, but wanted to find something that was reasonably priced and not a chain when in Sydney. The hotel price matched a deal Expedia were doing and so I had a great deal with all the offerings of Ovolo....More
From the moment we arrived to the time we left our experience was fantastic. The service when we arrived was very friendly and happy. The room was fabulous. Room to move, lovely bathroom and amenities. Balloons on our bed for my Husbands (milestone) Birthday. It...More
Steeped in history, Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour was tastefully restored and thoughtfully designed with shutter-happy Instagrammers in mind, providing photo opportunities around every corner so captivating that …Moreyou really need #nofilter. Originally constructed as a wool store and factory in 1888, the building still bears the original signage of its birth year, visible from the busy streets of Pyrmont. A heritage listed 90-bedroom boutique hotel as well as bar & event space, Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour brings together Sydney's old world charm and contemporary design with Ovolo's service culture to offer a truly mind-blowing experience in modern hospitality. The collection of rooms each boast 3-metre high ceilings, exposed brick walls, original ironbark beams, concealed uplighting, huge sound proofed period windows, recycled timber work stations, bespoke furniture and feature walls in each room flaunting the colourfully commissioned pieces by celebrated local artist, Jasper Knight. Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour is located in Sydney's inner-city suburb of Pyrmont, neighbouring Darling Harbour, Sydney CBD, Sydney Fish Market, Sydney Exhibition & Convention Centre, The Star, a wide selection of must-go bars & dining options, and the very best boutique shopping this side of the Southern Hemisphere. 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 gym access? - Yep, all free.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Hey there! We certainly do have lifts up to our floors but one floor has stairs. Please let us know what name you are staying under so that we can ensure that you are not allocated on this floor. Also suggest that you don't reserve a loft room as they have narrow stairs up to the bedroom. I hope this helps!
