    Funky place to stay

    The Ovolo 1888 is a fun place to stay. From the very first time we walked into reception we felt very welcome. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Paid parking is available just over the road at a Wilson's parking garage. You can easily walk into Darling Harbour and down to the Rocks if you wish. The room was compact , but more than adequate. The free mini bar and Loot bag was appreciated. The whole hotel has a funky industrial feel and I wish we had more time for a drink at the bar. I will be coming back to this hotel when I next need accomodation in the centre of Sydney. It felt like we were staying at a friend's house, rather than a hotel. We had no noise issues staying here, and we were on the ground floor. Thanks Ovolo, we will be back.

    Great experience. First time staying in this hotel. Rey friendly service. We stayed in the shoebox room which had one queen bed, just what we needed. You could drink all the drinks supplied in the bar fridge free of charge. Had lots of great necessities in the room. We felt very spoilt as it was our wedding anniversary and we were given a complimentary bottle of sparkles. The location as around 200 metres from darling harbour. Glad we stayed here and not other hotels around darling harbour. Thanks again for the great hospitality. 👍🤗🤗
