Best in Sydney!”

The Ovolo on Finger Wharf may be built within the shell of a old woodshed but there's nothing dated about its offerings. The staff were attentive, warm and welcoming and accommodated my early check in request. The Duluxe loft room I booked was spacious and packed with amenities that really added to the great experience of our stay. From the fully comped stocked minibar, spacious bathroom and even to the complimentary yoga mat. The room was fantastic. The location of the hotel was great, there's a bunch of great restaurants at the wharf itself and not to mention the pie cart right out front. The hotel is also a short walk through the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House and a slew of fantastic eateries located therein. Not to mention around the Woolloomooloo area too. The cleaning staff should also be commended for doing a truly thorough job with the room. Not only with the usual duties but taking the extra care to fold clothing and even wind up our charging cables to keep the tables neat and tidy. A truly exceptional stay!

Wonderful place to stay”

From the moment we first set eyes on the place, to the moment we left, we could not stop talking about this place. The staff were amazing: always willing to go that bit extra. If you want to sit downstairs on floor 2, there is free coffee, tea, biscuits and plenty of sweets for the kids. You can also borrow an X-Box One which is also free. The accommodation itself is wonderful: there is an upstairs where my wife and I slept, whereas, on the sofa downstairs, my son slept: he found it very comfortable. To be honest, so did I when I slept there after a few halves. In terms of location, really spot on: walk into town, or walk to the Botanic Gardens, or beyond to Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, Ovolo is within walking distance of these great locations. Overall, Ovolo is a wonderful place to stay, ideally located to within walking distance of world class attractions and the staff are very friendly.

Fantastic hotel which great new concepts”

Location, great staff performance, style

Had a wonderful three night stay a the Ovolo. From the moment you walked you felt very welcomed. Friendly and helpful staff at reception. Quite liked their staff uniforms which adds to the whole vibe of the place. The room was excellent, comfortable bed and plenty of pace. Loved the free breakfast, welcome drink, free use of mini bar, free snack pack on arrival day and happy hour at the bar. The hotel is outside the CBD on the other side of the Botanical Gardens. Takes about 20 mins to walk from hotel to city through the gardens. Nice restaurants along side the wharf. Foyer was still under construction but that didn't impact our stay. Definitely would stay there again and totally recommend the place.

First visit to Sydney ”

Location, staff, facilities

Arriving from the airport we were blown away by the position and the build of the hotel. Free mini bar and happy hour meant you felt welcome and didn't feel you were getting fleeced - ever. The position of the hotel in Sydney was first rate. 5 minutes to the Botanics,15 minutes to the Opera House and 20 minutes to Circular Quay - by foot! One of the best features was built-in USB charging in the plug sockets - incredibly useful, meaning you didn't have to hunt for your Apple or Android chargers. Apart from the room needing a little better lighting and some cleaning issues, this hotel was literally fantastic. If we ever visit Sydney again, this is where we'd stay!

Great atmosphere”

The staff was amazingly helpful when I showed up at 8am from an international flight and was not supposed to check in until 3pm. They got me the first cleaned room that came available. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere and decore, and a great view where there just happened to be a naval battleship outside my window. I'll definitely stay at the Ovolo on my next trip to Sydney.

Stunning stay in Woolloomooloo! ”

Absolute perfection; the service, design, location and overall customer experience surpassed all expectations. I highly recommend Ovolo at the beautifully restored Woolloomooloo Wharf finger. Don't forget to take a stroll in the nearby Botanic Gardens and eat delicious Italian food at Otto on the Wharf.

GREAT AND DIFFERENT HOTEL”

This hotel is beautifully situated next to the Woolloomooloo dock in a converted warehouse and short walk to the Botanic Gardens and art galleries. The public areas are fabulous very different, spacious and eye-catching. We had a top floor room which is on 2 floors - a seating area downstairs with toilet and a bedroom en-suite upstairs - very quirky and attractive with some great and unusual artwork. There were lots of extras - as well as the usual toiletries etc, there was a little grab bag of food, a useful carrier bag, free soft drinks and water in the fridge, and a few other bits and pieces - a really nice touch. The staff were lovely - we arrived very early and left our luggage with them - when we came back later, it was all in the room for us. Couldn't recommend the hotel more strongly - really great!!

Room quality, location and staff

My weekend stay at the Blue was unforgettable. The hotel is in a breathtaking location and has an ambience that combines cutting edge interior design and Sydney maritime history with effortless aplomb. The room was palatial, comfortable, quiet and truly felt like a home away from home. Have rarely slept as well in a hotel. But above all things, the staff at the Blue were exceptional, from kerbside to housekeeping. Their quiet efficiency, personal attention to detail, readiness to help at all times was remarkable and made our stay a true delight. Reception / concierge staff in particular were an absolute asset and genuinely pleasant people doing a wonderful job. I truly hope to stay at the Blue again and have taken every opportunity to sing its praises to others. Wonderful!

My booking did not include brekkie but was given courtesy top up without any extra charges! And free minibar, really, this place is definitely setting the standard bar pretty high for other hotels in Sydney! Can’t love it enough! Best staying experience indeed for my first trip to Sydney!

Beautiful unique hotel, the lobby area is wonderful ”

I really enjoyed staying at Ovolo, I normally stay at The Old Clare which is great but there was a special daily deal on so it was less expensive and I thought I would give it a try. I'm glad I did, the building is very impressive, the rooms tastefully done and all the little extras make it (Netflix, Free Mini-Bar, Goodie Bag, Mouthwash, Alexa and Harmon Kardon speakers) The lobby area is beautiful, there's lots of places to sit and read or play pool or have a drink and nibble.

2nd time staying here and not as good as the first time.”

I booked Ovolo for the 2nd time after having a wonderful experience last time, however this time there were a few issues. 1. I was with my partner and hadn't seen her for a few weeks and we were put in a disabled enabled room, which was just kind of weird for a young couple. 2. There is construction going on where the reception is so at breakfast time when I was trying to get some work done it was very noisy. 3. Breakfast wasn't included but it wasn't made very clear, so we were charged for the continental breakfast $50 - they said they would remove the charge but didn't. It's a great hotel, and a beautiful space but had high expectations that unfortunately weren't met this time.

We chose the hotel because it has a lot of character and is close to downtown but is also just outside the hustle and bustle of the city. We loved the comfortable, stylish rooms with all the mod cons like Apple TV and Netflix. Staff were really friendly and efficient and made us feel extremely welcome. We also appreciated the special Ovolo touches like free minibar and snacks. Looking forward to staying here again.
