  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Great experience. First time staying in this hotel. Rey friendly service. We stayed in the shoebox room which had one queen bed, just what we needed. You could drink all the drinks supplied in the bar fridge free of charge. Had lots of great necessities in the room. We felt very spoilt as it was our wedding anniversary and we were given a complimentary bottle of sparkles. The location as around 200 metres from darling harbour. Glad we stayed here and not other hotels around darling harbour. Thanks again for the great hospitality. 👍🤗🤗

I love staying at Ovolo. It's a great location and lovely staff and a unique hotel. I do think the rooms are starting to look a little tired now though. so maybe a small spruce up would help.
