We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the hotel and agree with so many of the positive comments made in reviews. We too booked on their site so received all the many lovely comps [breakfast, happy hour, etc]. The reason we cannot give a 5 star rating is the first day we returned to our room after 4pm, it...

What a breath of Fresh Air this Hotel is to the Sydney market. Over 3 nights the hotel & its staff were at all times 5 star. We had a suite and got all the amazing additions that this hotel offers/includes in the price (look at web site there are too many to include here ). The staff were fantastic...

I was travelling with my son. I have breast cancer and wanted to share a special holiday with him. The accomodation was awesome and even though really central to everything, was quiet during nighttime. We shared a room with two King singles. The beds were really comfy and the pillows were "to die for." I dined in a couple of...

The staff were excellent on arrival, very welcomimg and friendly. I had a loft room with the bedroom upstairs similar to other delegates, we all felt like we had been upgraded but this wasn't the case, great room with a ton of space. The really impressive touches were, the FREE loot bag with snacks, happy hour including drinks and snacks,...

Very very cool hotel. This is by far the coolest hotel I've ever stayed with. From arrival the staff are fabulous, service is slick and efficient. We had the pleasure of staying in a 5th level Deluxe Loft Suite and weren't disappointed. Furniture & decor is on-trend, and rooms are spacious, 1.5 bathrooms, opening slide window with water and people...

Ok on arrival the branding of this hotel is great. uniforms, welcome, room branding and goodies. But, and there is a but.... We stayed here for 3 days. The breakfasts are poor, expensive and considering what you can get in the restaurants over the road, surprised they don't up their game a bit. Staff after the welcome, once the branding...

I have stayed at this hotel for fourteen years through its many incarnations. This is my third extended visit, six weeks, since Ovolo took it over. It was just as wonderful as ever. First of all, the location is delightful. On Woolloomooloo Wharf in a charming area-yet totally convenient to CBD or the fun areas of Potts Point and Darlinghurst....

Trendy fit out and loads of great extras on offer when you stay, including free breakfast and minibar, plus some little treats in your room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location, space, views – have it all when you stay at Ovolo Woolloomooloo. Stretched along the longest timber-piled wharf in the world, the hotel is situated over the picturesque Sydney Harbour on the outskirts of Sydney CBD. A boutique hotel, bar and event center, Ovolo Woolloomooloo bridges between history and modern luxury. The architectural design of this heritage listed property is a truly breathtaking sight with its stunning French windows neatly placed in rows along the building, stylishly framed by the signature teal coloring. As you enter the hotel, contemporary design elements and furnishings complement original fixtures of the property, with seamless integration of the Ovolo touch – all the little things that make effortless living a reality for the modern, tech-savvy traveler. Journey through the 100 rooms and suites and you’ll find that each one tells a uniquely Australian story, portrayed through a series of art pieces cleverly infused into the interior design features. A short stroll from the hotel will get you to iconic attractions like the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay, as well as popular restaurants and waterholes right on the wharf or in the surrounding suburbs. But really, who needs to go anywhere when your room rate already includes everything? Continental breakfast*, Wi-Fi, mini bar, self-service laundry, happy hour*, 24 hour indoor pool & gym? – Yep, all free. ... more   less
