We normally stay at big chain hotels. I don’t know really why - I guess it just seems easier. But with a little more effort, you could stay at a property like this!! It really does put some of the big chains to compete shame. I guess they are trying really hard in what must be a competitive environment.....and you know what....it’s shows! Well done to all the team here.

This hotel is fabulous - welcoming and a good location for the conference centre or tourist things.. staff are super helpful, breakfast was delicious with lots of choice, great coffee and loads of extras. DO NOT STAY anywhere else! This place has the best vibe!

Room tip: Rooms are small but absolutely perfect for two!

We loved everything about our stay at Ovolo 1888! From the moment we checked in (with a surprise upgrade to a suite!!), the very funky room, free minibar, free social hour- with beautiful antipasto platter, the freshest, greatest breakfast, the amazing and friendly staff (Vicky needs a special mention- she dropped a bottle of Prosecco to our room ‘on the house!’). It was our second time staying g here this year and we will definitely be back!!

This is certainly not one of those large impersonal hotel chains its a quirky little hotel on the fringe of Darling Harbour, within easy walking distance to the city.
The staff here were all friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was lovely, and the breakfast to go for early checkout was a nice touch. The meals in the restaurant were delicious and reasonably priced. The room we stayed in was small but clean and the bathroom was well appointed. Book direct with them for a few added extra inclusions.
Cheers.

Room tip: Book direct for the cherries on top.
