Bursting with character amidst the bustling streets and shimmering, yacht-filled harbor, Ovolo Woolloomooloo is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel blending contemporary design with the historic charm of its prime waterfront location. Sydney, Australia, is renowned for its iconic landmarks and vibrant culture, and with its abundant style, comfort, and charm, this unique property is an exceptional option for travelers looking for something fresh but refined in Sydney CBD.

A Historic Gem by the Harbour

Located in the heart of Sydney’s Woolloomooloo Wharf, Ovolo Woolloomooloo (just saying the name out loud is fun) is housed in a heritage-listed building dating back to the early 1900s that once served as the Fitzroy Dock. Australian icon Russell Crowe has a residence in the building and the hotel pays homage to its maritime roots, seamlessly integrating modern aesthetics with the historic charm of the wharf. From the moment you step inside, you are stuck by colorful whimsy and the harmonious marriage of old-world architecture and contemporary design.

More Than a Room

The hotel boasts a diverse range of accommodations, from cozy and intimate rooms to spacious suites and two-story lofts that feel like trendy apartments. The vibrant colors, modern furnishings, plush bedding, and thoughtfully curated amenities ensure a stay that is as comfortable as it is stylish. The two-story Cityvoo Loft we stayed in offered gorgeous views of the Sydney skyline and truly felt like a chic, lived-in space. Welcome amenities included a super-comfy king bed, electric blinds, a Chromecast TV, complimentary snacks, and a complimentary mini-bar. Yes, you heard that correctly. A complimentary mini-bar. What a revolutionary concept.


So. Many. Perks.

Ovolo Woolloomooloo really goes above and beyond when it comes to amenities and added bonuses. In addition to the aforementioned snacks and mini-bar, also included with your stay are a complimentary continental breakfast and daily social hour in the Lo Lounge bar. The latter is a fantastic way to soak in the artsy ambiance of the hotel (and the first round of free drinks) while you mingle with other trendy guests from across the globe. There are also ample games to play during your stay and a fully-equipped 24-hour fitness center.
