We spent three nights in Melbourne at the Ovolo Hotel. Contrary to the review by ess36 we had no noise disturbance whatsoever and slept really well. The hotel was well situated and we could walk everywhere. The room was great. We had been upgraded to a suite on the second floor so there was a large lounge area as well as a bedroom and a very nice shower room. It was all very clean. We had a decent sized fridge and they supplied cereal bowls, plates and cutlery so we were able to 'self-cater' for breakfast. They did supply a 'grab-and-go' free breakfast of muffins if you wished. Also we had a free mini-bar which was restocked each day (soft drinks, wine and beer). A nice touch also was a free 'goody bag' in the room which contained all the things that other hotels charge a fortune for e.g. nuts, crisps, chocolate etc. Free Wi-Fi also a bonus - we had to pay $30 for 24 hours at the Mercure Hotel in Sydney. On the way out there was a fridge and you could help yourself to bottled water. I just wish every hotel could look after their guests as well as this one did!
