Ovolo opens Melbourne boutique hotel

Australia: Ovolo has opened its first Australian hotel, a 43-room boutique property in Melbourne’s Central Business District.

Guestrooms range from studio apartments to luxury penthouses with terraces, pinball machines and boxing punchbags.

General manager of business development at the Hong Kong-based hotel and serviced apartment operator Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala said: “Our aim is to provide truly effortless living and experience our unique personalised service with all the extras included. Rated one of the best cities in the world Melbourne was an obvious choice. We hope our guests enjoy their stay so much they never want to leave! But if they must, they’ll have access to Melbourne’s unique lifestyle right outside their door.”

Rooms include chalkboard walls, shaving mirrors in the showers, and amenities from NYC Malin + Goetz. Personalised 24-hour reception service, free WIFI, complimentary daily mini-bar, unrestricted local calls and breakfast services are all part of the price.

The company is planning a series of further openings in major Australian cities.
