Great but noisy

Great hotel , good freebies but walls and floor acoustics are very bad. It was like having the person nx door living in yr room. Could hear everything so had to wear my earplugs to get some decent sleep. Loved the bean bag and free mini bar inside the room

This hotel is great, very clean, beautifully laid out. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The grab and go breakfast was very handy for the days I was heading out to see the city. Love that everything is included! I will definitely stay here again.

We had a great time

everything was exactly as advertised, clean, free wifi, breaky pastries, mini bar, happy hour & lolly bar. Staff, particularly Alana was extremely helpful and nice. We have absolutely zero to complain about...thank you all for a great long weekend.

Great spot for a Melbourne getaway

Great groovy hotel right on the edge of all the action, walking distance to the centre of the city and near the Tram for destinations further afield. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment, loved the extra space, huge bathroom, great bed and superb pillows. Free bar and happy hour was a great way to start the evening too. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again.

Excellent for extras within a budget

Perfect spot for city laneway location. Room was compact but had everything you'd need - and the freebies were a great and welcome touch. The only thing I would have liked was a better water pressure to actually make the most of what looked like a fantastic shower head.

Friendly great location great quirky add ons

We found this hotel and decided on it over others due to the Free mini bar offer, free wifi and location. What could the mini bar have in it we thought. Well from the moment we arrived we were happy. The mini bar had 2 coopers ales ( not that we drank it) little organic colas ( don't drink it either ) Rose lemonade (yummo) Ginger beer (Yummo) Water bubbly and straight ( all great). There was a loot bag also which was a nice surprise, Caramello Koala, mentos, plain chips and nobbys nuts. The staff were helpful with ideas for anything. The bed was comfortable but would of liked to know about the garbage truck and noise from street, but did not really bother us as we were awake at that time. The internet was good, tv good, Tea choices fantastic. The free breakkie located at the front reception area was quirky but hubby loved the pastries and coffee. Nothing gluten free for me but plenty in Melbourne to choose. Happy hour 6 -8 was great also. Only complaint we had was we booked a limo to pick us up and were waiting in the foyer and asked the girl but it appears she presumed we were waiting on the shuttle bus and although our driver had already come inside to see if we were there she had sent him away to wait in the car, didn't even offer him the warmth of the reception area or to double check if it was us who were waiting for him. Would stay here again for sure.

Funky hotel in funky end of town

Great location and fantastic room. It was comfortable, clean and modern. The staff were welcoming and friendly and there are cafes, bars and restaurants galore within a stones throw away. I wish I knew about this place earlier. Will definitely be back.

Always a pleasure

Love the style, sophistication and fun at Ovolo. The free-bies in the room are great and the free mini bar is an added bonus! Disappointed that the wine is no longer available in room and it wasn't replaced by another option but everything else was great! A few minor repairs required in our Studio Suite but a comfortable stay regardless. It's the second time I've been back and we will definitely visit again.
