Solent,

Oh yes, now I realise ... in Dec I was asking that on behalf of someone else who went to BKK and stayed in a lovely new htl on the river.

This time it's for me to go to HKG. Thanks

Thanks Solent for your updates.

I'm looking for something that goes from end June to mid July, if you hear of anything.

Another new hotel opening, Ovolo 100 SPW at 100 Shek Pai Wan Road, Aberdeen. Ovolo has announced opening date of 1st August and opening offers from HK$770 per night "for a very limited time". Its across the road from Aberdeen Harbour, east of Aberdeen Wholesale Fish Market. Plenty of buses and easy access to Ocean Park, Repulse Bay and Stanley, but the MTR doesn't reach the south side of HK Island until 2015. The hotel is a conversion from serviced apartments operated by Ovolo at the same location;

Ovolo, who are rapidly expanding their portfolio of properties in HK, are also opening another new hotel, which is a conversion of an industrial building, within short walking distance of Ocean Park before the end of this year.
