My husband and I loved our stay at Ovolo. The door to each of the suites is a different color, ours was green. Inside, it had a spare, modern aesthetic, with a sliding tracked door to separate the bedroom from the small, but efficient living room. The bed was really comfortable, always important after a long flight from the U.S. The check-in process was quick and efficient, allowing us to get to our room, grab a great hot shower and head out to walk around Melbourne. The location was ideal, close to the tourist tram, gardens, restaurants, and the church we had wanted to go to. The great variety of pastries and the Nespresso machine in the morning made breakfast quick and easy. The front desk personnel were terrific, giving us advice and directions to make things easier. A special thank you to Andrei, the duty manager, who went out of his way to help us find our way around. He directed us out to St.Kilda's on the bus and to a great dinner on the beach. That kind of service and hospitality makes all the difference to a visitor. You will love the Ovolo!
