i stayed at the ovolo with my partner for a friends wedding.
the service was amazing.
very friendly and very helpful with recommending restaurants.
i loved little touches like free nespresso and mini bar and happy hour.
although they failed to fill up the milk the first day we arrived so it was long blacks.
the malin + goetz bath products and organic teas where lovely.
and the big comfy pillows were amazing to sleep on.
the only cons i have is our bathroom was nothing like the photos.
it reminded me of my bathroom in labour ward.
and the "hot" water was luke warm.
i love my hot showers. so this wasn't the best way to wake up.
and our toilet roll holder was missing so our toilet paper was just balancing on a rail.
also our roof had a large patch of mould growing on it.
which was off putting.
and got quite noisy outside at night which woke me up a few times and im a deep sleeper.
but would i stay there again?
