A nice stay at Ovolo. Breakfast was great, lots of veg options. Room was spacious and well equipped. There wasn't any input from any cable TV channels such as CNN, or finance channels, only free to air was available, all others displayed no signal. Reception staff advised the hotel doesn't have cable and this is normal, a first I've seen in a high-end hotel. The team were very friendly, watch for the sneaky credit card surcharge, beyond what is charged by the merchant. Décor is nice, close proximity to the city centre. The building has a rich history and stylish rooms and hip vibe. The hot water in the shower was unstable and required some precise adjustment to keep the temperature steady. Free minibar was great, solid offering which was a nice addition to the stay.

What a treat what a delight ; this place is absolutely gorgeous. From the moment you booked to actual walk in - the staff make you feel home away from home . They take care of everything. Service is impeccable. The rooms are cozy and surprisingly large . The best part is they even thought of a yoga mat for those guests that need to train daily. Love it would highly recommend it and will always book here at wooloomooloo again as it’s next door to Syd finest restaurants.
