Had a 1:30am check in and the staff were great and also gave me a late check out to help. The location is great and the hotel in nice and modern and great value
Adam, au1 night business trip

Comfortable for one night.
We stayed overnight at the Ovolo Laneways as we were going to the theatre and thought we’d spend the night in town. The hotel is close to several theatres and good restaurants. We had a standard room which was fine for one night. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The mini bar had a couple of complementary drinks and there were some complementary snacks also which was a nice touch. The bedroom was large enough but the bathroom was tiny. The shower itself was fine and a comfortable size but the sink was ridiculously small. It would have been nice to have a small comfortable couch under the window rather than just having the bed to sit on. Overall it was comfortable for one night when you are not spending much time in the room.

Business visit to Melbourne
My room backed onto the laundry, so apart from the constant noise of the washer/dryer, the room was damp feeling. There was minimal natural light and really not was I was expecting after staying at other Ovolo hotels. The staff were very good and friendly.

Great little boutique hotel
Great location and very helpful and friendly staff. Had 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious. However you can hear some noise from surrounding rooms which was annoying at times.

Great Hotel, Just need to fix very Noisy Aircon
Great staff, Great Hotel concept, great area and nice and clean.However... The airconditioning unit cut in and out very frequently all night and was impossible to sleep through. If they can fix that it would be an amazing hotel
Robert, au1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
It was very good and condition was good as well but key operation is bit old, and sometimes it was not working so you have try three to four times. However over all it was very good

Great weekend at Ovolo Laneways
We had an excellent stay at Ovolo Laneways while in Melbourne to see the Harry Potter play at the Princess Theatre. On arrival we found out this was actually the official hotel for the play and really benefited from the fact that the theatre is literally around the corner. The two room suite was excellent, very comfortable and the freebies and Apple TV were a great touch. Close to great restaurants and an easy walk to pretty much everywhere in the CBD. Highly recommend.
