“Smart Move to Stay at Ovolo Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

We had to go to Hong Kong for 3 days. We selected the Ovolo Hotel for its location and we were so happy. The reception is manned by young, friendly, professionals. All our questions were answered, maps handed out, and suggestions where to get good dim sum were noted.
The rooms are small but very well laid out. Plush, heavy towels, complete-free-mini bar, full table service in drawer so If you want to bring in something, you have the dishes and tableware. Bathroom is with a pulsating shower-head as well as a rain water shower-head.
You are located at the steps going down to the major bar/restaurant area for SoHo, yet, you are not in the noise. It is easy to reach the shopping in Central and the Central Metro.
The morning breakfast, which was included in the price, was made to order in the "O" Restaurant directly connected next door. Very good, very filling, and with excellent coffee and fresh squeezed juices. We ended our stay with a full massage pkg at the Sense of Touch, also right around the corner, and with special rates for Ovolo clients. I am still feeling the magic a day after returning home. The spa was excellent and very professional. I highly recommend the Ovolo.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

I stayed at this hotel 2 nights for business trip. It was more like a hotel for tourist rather than business hotel. The room was very clean and relatively big. The bathroom was nice and the free mini bar were perfect! The staffs and service were excellent although the food was average. Overally, very satisfied and may come back again!

Pros:
Free wifi
Free washer/ dryer facilities
Free minibar (I have never heard another place that has this in the world!)
Well appointed rooms (they've thought of everything - no really)
Located in LKF, with walking distance to airport express, Central station, Star Ferry, tram

Cons:
None really. If I were to be picky, maybe more breakfast options (something local perhaps).

A lovely day can be planned by walking from here to Victoria Peak (not for everyone, it can be quite gruelling). But take advantage of this property's location!

Room Tip: Each floor only has two rooms, and so not much in difference of views. But ask for a higher room to...

We just finished our 4 night stay at this hotel this week and had a wonderful time. We selected this hotel as an alternative to the $600-700 USD/nt 5-star options (i.e. Mandarin Oriental) and were not disappointed. If you want 5 star quality, service and location at a more reasonable price this is your best bet in Central (which is one of the best areas of Hong Kong to stay in). The location is excellent, the rooms are small (~350sqft) but very modern and appear to have been built or renovated in the past 1-5 years. Location is a perfect home-base for sightseeing in virtually any area of Hong Kong. Service was outstanding and the mini-bar is free and restocked daily. They even noticed that it was my birthday (without us mentioning anything, probably noticed it on my passport) and surprised us with a bottle of champagne the day of! It was so sweet. We booked a package with free breakfast which was very good. Around the corner is a set of stairs that lead you right to the main nightlife area of Hong Kong with tons of bars and restaurants (2 minute walk). Would highly recommend this hotel!

This hotel is in a great part of town with KLF & Soho just down the street. Rooms beautifully decked out, big beautiful bathroom & amazing staff. No noise travelled between the rooms either.
Free mini bar and mineral water a bonus.
Loved that there were washing machines and dryers if you wanted to use them too.

Stayed here on our first trip to HK and was an excellent choice. Great room with EVERYTHING you could think of included in the nightly rate. Wifi minibar toiletries DVD player huge TV daily newspaper and great breakfast in the cafe on the ground floor. Gym is small but had everything you might need. Great friendly staff very helpful looked after us impeccably. Great location for anything you might want to do in HK. Cannot recommend highly enough. Beats allegedly ritzier establishments hands down and has a wonderful modern individual style so much nicer than most. A home from home!

The hotel is just steps away from LKF, but with none of the noise. Great, well though-out rooms, the most helpful and friendly staff, and great amenities. Highly recommended. The rooms are a great size, the shower is great, and most importantly, the rooms are quiet, while the bars are just steps away.
