The Ovolo is a good location to access Transport and China Town, the complimentary bar fridge is ok but in room 406 the fridge only cooled to 11 degrees so the beer wasn't cold. The free grab and go breakfast is ok if you are not GF as it is all pastry and muffins.
Generally the staff are good however one was less than helpful and didn't seem to want to leave whatever he was doing on the laptop? Sven on the other hand was excellent!!
The vanity basin in the bathroom is a head butter and poorly designed. Overall though a good hotel reasonably priced. Others complained of noise but in room 406 this was not an issue.
