Flying back and forth to Melbourne for work all the time is pretty draining, and finding a modern hotel thats reasonably priced is even more draining to say the least. Ovolo Laneways seemed like the perfect choice this time around, a sleek rendition of a luxury and modern hotel mini chain. Excitingly when I arrived I scored an upgrade (cheers guys!) to their exquisite penthouse suite.
Let me just say one night in the penthouse was NOT enough, it was like a NYC apartment. The Penthouse apartment boasted 2 large bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a massive lounge and dining, an massive rooftop outdoor area with spa pool and chill out zone, a decked out fridge full to help your self. The room was filled with so much colour and personality yet it was sleek enough to remain professional and there was even a Pinball machine behind the couch for those that like to burn a little childish calories. What excited me most was probably the free mini bar / fridge, stocked with everything from Wines to Perone and everything in between. The room also featured Wii Console for the gamers and Apple Tv for those that want to Netflix & Chill. Theres also no complaints about the all day snacks and free coffee and breakfast available from the lobby on tap. Hello Caffeine !
Even if I wasn’t upgraded to the penthouse suite I still would have been obsessed with the Hotel.
A+ service, solid interior design and all in all an 9/10 stay. I will be back Ovolo.
