I stayed for 5 nights. On first impression the room was clean but tiny. Hotel location is very good and the receptionist are helpful and friendly. Considering they were only operating at 70% occupancy and they even used one of the penthouses for grab n go breakfast they could have offered me an upgrade. As I don't have any Australia dollars I did not leave a tip for housekeeping for the first night. I went back to the room to find the floor sticky toiletries not replenished cup not washed and th...

I stayed here for 1 quick night on business last week & it was great. The staff were very helpful, the room very well appointed, spacious & comfortable, the open minibar - a brilliant idea & the rooftop terrace happy hour - very inviting. Being so centrally located near Chinatown & the East end of the CBD, it was very close to everything I needed. The parking nearby was a breeze. Despite the fact that one lift was out of order due to it being upgraded, I was able to get around the hotel quite ea... Read more

We recently took 3 rooms, 2 studios and a 2 room apartment. It worked perfectly for a family gathering, for theatre and football. Round the corner for theatre and excellent restaurants and short tram ride to MCG. Staff were friendly and helpful, beds divine; all commented, decor funky, free mini bar and grab and go breakfast all highlights. Bathrooms are small but groovy, showers excellent but sinks needed recessing, they are rather too small and no room for stuff. This was my second visit and I... Read more

Fantastic place in Little Bourke street. All staff go above and beyond, special a Thank you to Alana & Sam who were on reception and also up at the 2hr Happy Hour. Short stroll or tram ride(that is free in the city centre) and you are in China town for some fantastic food and all the shopping you would want is close to Ovolo. Once you are there, everything is included in your room rate from the mini bar, grab & go breakfast, all day refreshments & lollies to Happy Hour. We had a lovely 1 bedroom... Read more

This hotel lived up to my expectations. Stayed three nights this weekend gone and am very happy with my choice of hotel. Checkin seemless, arrived in the morning however they were able to hold my luggage and called me when my room was ready. The studio suite room on level 2 was spacious and clean. It wasn't until our last night we figured out how to work to air con but before that room was very warm. Bathroom basin tiny with no room for you stuff.

Booked on a travel site and scored a big suite. Huge room. Modern furnishings. Great shower. Love the free minibar and snacks. A good breakfast selection in the foyer. Was great for a multi-night stay with space to unpack and a fridge for drinks or whatever. Quiet location. Not great views. A good half-way point between the CBD and Fitzroy. Good tram access.

We stayed at Ovolo Laneways in late May for a weekend trip with some friends. Our three friends had a two bedroom suite which was enormous and my partner and I had a studio room. This was a great little hotel with every amenity you could hope for - from bathrobes and slippers in the rooms to happy hour upstairs every night. The reception desk staff were always incredibly helpful and efficient, our room was lovely, the bed very comfortable indeed and the shower even had a choice of showerheads... Read more

Alana and Andre were the two people looking after us while 7 of us stayed on a girls weekend from Sydney. Ovolo has absolutely nailed it with complimentary mini bar, thoughtful goodies on arrival and breakfast included. Great for groups as we had 2 bedroom apartments. Honestly can't think of a bad thing to say. I will look for other Ovolo properties in future.

Great location, very helpful and friendly staff. The free water/Wi-Fi, goodie bag and mini-bar are a very pleasant surprise, although the mini bar could do with a bottle of red. 2 days later I was back in Melbourne this time for work, and staying at the Travelodge; being charged $6 for a bottle of water makes those extra touches much more appreciated. Would definitely recommend, and stay again.

I had read a lot of reviews about this place, and as such was a little sceptical...surely too good to be true? However, it did not disappoint. The room was quirky and modern. But the amenities were the real highlight. Free mini bar. Free grab and go breakfast. Free happy hour (which we didn't attend). Free coffee and water. Free lolly bar. The bed was super comfortable. Shower large, although the basin was tiny and would be hard for a girl to do makeup if you were staying for a while. Elevators ... Read more

I booked a room at Ovolo Laneways for 3 nights for my partners 40th birthday, and having read lots of great reviews about Ovolo Laneways I was very excited about our stay. Very much looking forward to three days of Luxury Boutique hotel. Boutique yes, Luxury no. Closest hotel I've stayed at like Ovolo would be an Air Asia Tune Hotel.

We loved the Ovolo Laneways hotel in Melbourne - our family of 4 with our 2 adult children stayed here for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. The price was a little bit more expensive than some hotels but it was so worth it as so much was included - a great breakfast, the mini bar in the room, happy hour. The location was perfect - in the CBD, close to the free tram that circles the CBD, within easy walking distance to dozens of great restaurants and attractions like Federation Square. The hotel a...

My husband and I stayed at the Ovolo Laneways Hotel in June for a long weekend. The hotel is tucked away at the top of Little Bourke Street and is close to lots of great restaurants and bars. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the hotel had a great vibe. Our room was quite small, okay for a couple, but next time we would probably book a studio suite or one bedroom apartment. It was great to have included in the rate 'happy hour' drinks, whatever you like from the room's minibar, br... Read more

The Ovolo was excellent. We stayed with our two small children in a 2 bed suite (standard) which was a great size. The room was quiet despite the handy location on Little Bourke St and had a view of the city skyline (we were on the 3rd floor). The repairs to the lift being carried out didn't really trouble us other than having to take the stairs when the lift was slow. Staff were excellent and responded to a few requests very quickly. Free mini bar (soft drinks, wine and beer) was such a bonus, ... Read more

Our room was nicely appointed and despite one elevator being out for repairs, it was manageable as we were not at the hotel much during the day. It was modern and clean and the employees were very nice. The freebies were also a nice treat although we didn't use much. We had two main issues which is why we didn't give a 5...

Ovolo on Little Bourke is a great place to stay while visiting beautiful Melbourne. Situated close to Spring Street with easy access to the trams or a pleasant walk into the city centre. Staff are always so helpful and informative, and the grab and go breakfasts are surprisingly healthy (if you can resist the pastries!) Really comfy beds and a free mini bar! Definitely will return!
