6 Cowper Wharf Roadway, Woolloomooloo, New South Wales, Australia
"Reconstructed from the shipyard, so it looks like a long strip, the interior of the hotel still retains the feeling of the old shipyard workshop, the design of the decoration is very strong, plus the special dynamic BGM, it feels like a visit Show. There is also a small performance room next to the lobby. If you search the Internet, you can find videos of some live performances by artists. The room is quite large, because the room at the corner where we live has windows on all three sides, so the lighting is very good. The room has Harman Kardon audio, Amazon Alexa, the air conditioning system seems to be Honeywell's specific memory is not clear, the overall situation is high. The employees also seem to be trendy men and women. They are friendly and courteous. If you find that you didn’t understand it, he or she will slow down and tell you again. Communication is basically not a problem, but if you encounter poor English. I don't know how to solve even people who don't understand English at all. It is estimated that there should be Asian employees who understand Chinese. The hotel does not provide toothbrushes! The hotel does not provide toothbrushes! ! The hotel does not provide toothbrushes! ! ! The important thing is said three times. Slippers, cotton, non-woven LOW non-woven slippers, we took it off when we checked out, and wore it while sleeping on the plane back home, very comfortable. For meals, the price we book is 3 nights more than 4,900 (including tax), including breakfast, the breakfast is pure western, or very rich, especially the Australian honeybee honey is very special, you must try it, the fruit has grapefruit , oranges, strawberries, apples, raisins, watermelons, etc. There are no hot meats such as grilled sausages, only cold salted ham and salted sashimi, coffee is good. In short, if you are used to Chinese breakfast, there is no need to have breakfast at the hotel every day. In addition to the double breakfast, our room rate includes the mini bar in the room, you can drink it casually, there are small bottles of red wine, small bottles of dry white, red cattle, beer, mineral water, sparkling water (equivalent to soda). (By the way, when ordering at an Australian restaurant, the waiter will ask you if you want water or sparkling water. Don't know what sparkling water is when you don't know.) Location and transportation: The Woolloomooloo area in the hotel is Sydney's old town. Locals generally do not live in these places. There are many old but well-maintained old houses nearby, retaining the architectural style of the British colonists, Woolloomooloo It's a low-lying area, so it's not recommended to walk completely, because sometimes the distance looks very close, but it's actually very tired to walk. There is always a taxi at the entrance of the hotel, but if there is no emergency, it is recommended to take the bus, because the Australian taxi is very expensive. There are 331 buses across the road, usually every ten minutes, and a few minutes to the city center. (Don't imagine the Australian bus as a domestic bus. It's not a concept at all. Their bus is generally There is a seat, and the ride experience is particularly good). The west side of the hotel is a marina, and the east is a military base. The long-term mooring of the Royal Australian Navy's warships. When we went, we saw the latest bomber of the Australian Navy, the "Brisbane" destroyer quietly parked there, far away. Photography is still possible. It is worth mentioning that there is a fast food called Harry's Cafe De Wheels on the side of the road next to the pier. It looks like a small house on the roadside to buy newspapers and groceries. This shop is very popular in the local area. To taste their peas and hot dogs, it is important that we have more than ten o'clock in the evening, they are still open, so the nightingale has a guarantee. In the evening, I ordered some snacks, sitting on a bench next to the tree, and blowing the sea breeze to feed the seagulls, it was very pleasant."
"I’ve stayed in Ovolo before in Hong Kong and was very satisfied with the service. So this time was no exception. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Except they still haven’t returned my deposit even though my stay ended a month ago. But it’s supposedly not their fault... I have a Chinese bank card, so the refund is slow...
The facilities are great except the shower and toilet which were leaking and making weird noises.
The room service wasn’t great, actually there was a lot of misunderstanding after which something I ordered was on the house for arriving an hour and a half later.
Everyone from the housekeeping to the receptionist was trying to be helpful, but my impression is that the management isn’t doing such a good job with this establishment.
The location is not very well connected by public transport so you need to walk for about 15-20min to the city core or take a taxi (only one bus which goes every 20min).
There is an incredible running track which leads all the way to the Opera house and right next door are some amazing restaurants.
Getting to the gym was very confusing and the gym itself was the tiniest I have ever seen. But the pool was very long and also had a jacuzzi (which was temporarily out of order).
The breakfast was good for me as a vegetarian but might have not been adequate for a meet lover. Too much pastry, fruit and yogurt. And the coffee machine wasn’t working very well so I got dirty water instead of coffee in my cup a few times.
There was a free minibar and happy hour and the drinks were good.
Overall I had a better experience in Hong Kong even though this stay was more expensive.
"Base's boutique hotel brand in Hong Kong is new but super fast. This time, there is a hotel in Sydney that has just opened in Sydney. I have had many awards before, and I lived in and experienced it. As a member of the SLH Alliance, design and details are pretty good. The hotel hopes to create a smart and relaxing environment for everyone, so the room is equipped with Amazon's smart assistant Alexa, Harman Kardon's Bluetooth speaker, Apple TV, and other electronic products, the overall experience is still great, and the first floor along the dock A series of high-quality restaurants opened in the district, bringing the entire old dock area to life. The only thing is that the lighting design of the room is not perfect. This point is deducted, and this level of hotel is out. The spare parts are actually large bottles. Although I understand that it is to reduce waste by environmental protection, it is true for me as a spare control. Unacceptable, deduct points. But overall it is still a hotel worth experiencing, especially the clock in the lobby bar, too magical."
