“Great things come in small packages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

I was tempted not to do a review only because if everybody know's how good this hotel is I may struggle to get in next time, it is a small hotel with a great package.
Stayed for a week with my wife and enjoyed every moment. All the staff were absolutely brilliant and you could see that customer service is number 1 for them ( special mention for Becky a true star). As everybody else states the rooms are a bit on the small side, but that really is as far as I could go as a complaint. Even the location is good, a bit away from the hustle bustle of Central (20 minutes) and Kowloon (30 minutes) but within 2 minutes walk from a bus stop to any where you want to go. We purchased Octopus cards $150 HKD which includes $50 to be refunded if you bother to return the card, and they lasted all week with plenty left.
Plenty choice for breakfast included, free mini-bar, free 2 hours (6-8pm) happy hour with quality brand spirits, wine , beer, soft drinks and snacks.
We had a deluxe room with a seaview, absolutely fantastic view. Bathroom was spacious with nice line of toiletries as well.
The hotel apart I would recommend trips to Ocean park, StanleyMarket and a must is the peak tram.

Room Tip: Harbour view is better and if you can get a room higher up they are a little quieter not that they a...

Dear GrahamG1739

We loved reading your review and humbled by your description “Great things comes in small packages”. Ovolo Hotels tend to be in the small scale but that is exactly how we like it. We get to know our guest better and create a living environment like that of someone visiting your best friend’s house. Thank you for the special mention. Becky was all smiles all day after I showed her your review! Should you ever have any difficulty in getting a room with us, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

The Ovolo 100 really was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Funky, amazing service and incredible quality.
As a couple on our honeymoon we couldn't have wished for more.
Aside from the hotel looking great the quality is what sets it apart from others. Everything from the room goodies, luxury bath products, free happy hour from 6-8 and free minibar in you room makes the stay wonderful.

I didn't mind being based in Aberdeen on the south of Hong Kong island at all. In fact it was nice to see an area that isn't just geared up for tourists. It's about 20-25 minutes on the bus to Central. There's at least 3 bus options too, so we never waited too long.
The hotel also gives you a handy bus map and plenty of info in case you are nervous about getting around. The staff also speak excellent English and will happily answer any questions.
Also thank you Wilson for being super friendly on our arrival and to the hotel manager Chum for making us feel special during our stay.

I 100% recommend and can't wait to return! Enjoy!

Dear AjayViswas

Your review and your “Best Hotel Ever” endorsement is what really makes every one of us here in Ovolo do what we do! And we loved looking after you and your group. The many “awesome” and “super” adjectives you have used to describe your experience is truly humbling. Thank you for your generosity and for choosing to stay with us in your recent Hong Kong trip.

Stayed here because of proximity to Ocean Park with my daughter and nephew for two nights. Service was excellent from the moment we checked in; all our requests were handled courteously and efficiently. I travel a lot on business in Asia so I'm used to the big 4-5 star chains. This hotel is quite different in a good way. I found the idea about including the extras really good. Minibar, laundry, drinks / snacks from the lounge and a few goodies in the room were all included which I felt made the stay more relaxing. Room was very well decorated (especially the bathroom with very powerful shower). Everything was decent quality including tv, bathroom stuff and so on. We had a queen room and it was fine for two people by Hong Kong standards. We were directly facing a large graveyard so if you're superstitious I'd suggest asking for a Harbour view.

Dear Scottzbj,

Thank you for your wonderful feedback following your recent stay with us. We aim to provide an effortless living experience to our guests and your comments is a reaffirmation that we are doing the right thing, so thank you!

Also much appreciated are the many superlatives you used to describe your experience from “excellent service” to “powerful shower” (yes, we should never underestimate a great shower to start a day). Although, a few may found the graveyard a wee dreadful but I’d like to think it’s a reminder that life is fleeting and one should enjoy every single moment while they are Hong Kong or anywhere for that matter :) And I know you did! Cheers!

This is a great hotel with stunning harbour views that caters for everything without extra charge. The rooms were small, but fine for 1 person. They may be a little cramped for 2, however for Hong Kong I'm sure this size is standard. The beds were comfy - if a little hard, though that's perhaps my personal taste - and I loved the way they face the floor-to-ceiling window so that you can lie in bed and look at the view. The TV was large, modern and has a good selection of English channels.
The bathroom, though again small, had a fabulous "rain" shower. Again it's all very modern.
Overall there were a few places (such as skirting boards) that could do with a new coat of paint and the room didn't look quite as shiny as in the photos.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the freebies were all a nice touch. Breakfast was a buffet (western), small but sufficient; bread/toast and condiments, croissants, mini muffins, fruit, cereal, yoghurt and boiled eggs.
The hotel is a bit out of the way, however there are good, cheap, frequent buses into the centre and other places. The staff are more than happy to help you out with this. Be warned though, that traffic can be bad so travel can often take a while (up to 45 minutes into the centre). Also I had trouble finding buses back to the hotel, so often had to take a taxi (ten pounds each way).Therefore, I think the money I saved being out of the centre was probably made up for in taxi fares during my stay, and this is something to bear in mind.

Dear Smartej32

Thank you for such an informative review, not only did you get to highlight what Ovolo is all about but at the same time provided us with great input of how we can improve our services in particular, information on return buses to the hotel which I feel will improve the ease of commuting and I will get cracking at a new guide for our guests. I want to thank you for this, really appreciated! I would also like to note that we are in the process of scheduling works for applying a protective laminate on the skirting in all of our rooms which we found the most ideal solution in Hong Kong’s humidity. In spite of these areas for improvements, we are very pleased to hear that everything else met your expectations from the “stunning harbour views” to the “comfy beds” and the “fabulous rain shower”. Looking forward to welcoming you back!

Stayed in the Ovolo in Aberdeen for 5 days. It was perfect for this length of stay. Aberdeen is only 15 minutes by taxi to Central and it's very cheap. The hotel was clean, efficient, well operated and very good value for money. You can launder you own clothes for free including washing powder, which is perfect for avoid costly laundry bills. The rooms are on the small side but perfectly fitted out with all mod cons so you won't be disappointed. It would be great if the hotel could provide a room service option sourcing the food from local restaurants like Lanson Place, as there is no room service.
