Amazing service for an injured traveller”

The day before I was due to check-in I had injured myself. I'd gone to the hotel first thing in the morning with my luggage and reception helped me to complete the check-in process, stow away my luggage, and asked what type of room I would want given my injury (ground floor or upper floors). To cut a long story short, I eventually went to the hospital to get my foot checked out and got back to the hotel that night with a cast and crutches, and the manager helped to bring my things all the way into my room, and even helped to delivery my Uber Eats order when it arrived half an hour later, with cutlery as well as he wasn't sure if it had been included in my order. The rest of my stay was just as wonderful - consistently excellent service, delicious breakfast and a very comfy room with Netflix and Prime (though you need your own account). The only detractor I can think of is that the window of my room was directly opposite an apartment building, but that doesn't bother me too much as I normally draw the curtains or blinds unless there's a view anyway. I had chosen this hotel as it had good reviews and it was close to Darling Harbour, and I wanted to treat myself, and I'm very glad I decided to shell out a bit and went with this option given the situation I found myself in. It's also a quiet neighbourhood and right in front of the Convention light rail stop, so quite convenient for getting around (something I'm sure I'd have been very pleased with had I been able to easily move around). I highly recommend this hotel and I'm looking forward to staying at other Ovolo hotels if I ever find myself in a city with one.

Highly recommended ”

A great hotel in a very good location if you want to stay in Darling Harbour. Really nice touches are the free mini bar and sweets in the reception area but best of all is free access to washing machines and tumble dryers; a real bonus if you are travelling for several weeks like we were. Shout out to Raymond who was so helpful when we were leaving and pointed out that we would save both time and money by taking a cab to the airport rather than struggling with our huge cases on public transport. A really lovely man who was clearly very proud of the hotel.

A seriously good, modern hotel”

This hotel had everything that I wanted and none of the crap that I don't want. Super clean, a very comfy bed that WASN'T two singles pushed together (whoever came up with that idea should be shot). Complimentary minibar and WIFI. Well designed bathroom with nice products. Super friendly staff that helped us out when we arrived early and needed a place to get changed. The wine at the bar was good. The location was awesome and a 1 min walk to the lightrail. The building itself was a grand old wool store with huge wooden beams and lovely brickwork. And the price was very good. Air conditioning was nice and cold (but warm when we first arrived as it hadn't been on because it is programmed to turn off when unoccupied). I had a very good stay and highly recommend to friends and couples.

Funky and friendly hotel”

Loved our overnight stay at Ovolo 1888. The staff at reception were excellent and super friendly. The design of the hotel is unique and very cool. The downstairs bar and restaurant area is also a great place to hang out. We were fortunate to get an upgrade to a loft room which was spacious, modern and really well designed with everything thought of. The location was great also as it was just behind Darling Harbour so an easy walk there or around Pyrmont. We couldnt fault it and would happily stay there again. Thanks Ovolo 1888
