Not your standard 5 star hotel, but wonderfully unique and fun, as is the Ovolo brand. Small touches like welcome card in the room, social hour, free billiards, and the goodies bag made this a special experience.

We have stayed before and it is a nice property close to the Botanical Gardens and Potts Point. The staff is friendly, but the hotel is a little tired and there were a couple of glitches probably due to staff shortages.

It has become a wedding venue (great model for them) so do not expect any peace and quiet… room 3007 whilst big is like being above a nightclub. Staff striggle to understand basic request and the whole place is starting to look shoddy with most rooms having patches in the carpets, worn paint and grubby paintwork. A shade of its fromer self. The food is average and for plant based it is expensive, it lacks cohesion as its a snack menu not a meal menu. Avoid the Ovolo unless youve been invited to a wedding and dont mind trying to sleep in/above a nightclub

Nice hotel, great location and access to finger wharf restaurants, very expensive. Unfortunately they double charged for one of the rooms one night and took over a week to provide a refund. Also nobody would answer the phones when we tried to contact staff to discuss the overcharge issue. Would not recommend paying on arrival, we thought we had secured our rate via Expedia to pay on arrival, however the hotel charge was more than double all our other rooms.
