Ovolo Laneways

Top choice hotel in City Centre
Image by Booking.com

This 43-room boutique hotel has a cool city vibe. It's friendly, fun and loaded with goodies – on the free list are self-service laundry, minibar, a Nespresso machine and candy bar in the lobby and, for direct bookings, happy-hour booze and breakfast. Suites are more impressive than studios; all have Amazon's Alexa. We love the personalised welcome messages and treats.

The penthouse has a pinball machine and outdoor jacuzzi.
