Tucked away at the top end of Little Bourke street, Ovolo Laneways is a discovery that will make you want to wish all hotels were like this when you travelled or when you were looking for a weekend away.

This stunning newly renovated hotel features quintessential Melbourne styling in the new penthouse and terrace suites.

Led by prominent international design practice HASSELL, the vision behind the new look for Ovolo Laneways pays homage to Melbourne’s unique laneway neighbourhoods, local artists and artwork, as well as providing a unique twist for the Penthouse and each of the terrace suites. To represent Melbourne’s diversity throughout the hotel, Ovolo collaborated with talented local designers and artists, including Loom Rugs, Luke Furniture, Jardan Furniture and Great Dane Furniture to bring colour to the bespoke suites.

Ovolo also commissioned Melbourne artist Brett Coelho to design a signature pendant light to feature in the Penthouse Suite. Brett works with found materials and objects to produce unique and beautiful pieces with an industrial yet playful edge that harmoniously complements OvoloLaneways aesthetic. The Penthouse also features a beautiful terrace overlooking Melbourne where guests can host a serious party, and it also includes a pinball machine just to mix it up a bit.
