The staff is very accommodating, quick to respond to requests and knowledgeable about the hotel and surrounding area. The hotel and room is very clean. Check in and check out was quick... More

Ovolo will be one of the best boutique hotels I have been to. The staff very friendly and courteous. The room that I stayed in though had no view but was neat & clean, with all possible amenities you would expect in the hotel room. Appreciated small gestures like free minibar.

Great spot. Helpful staff and good wifi. Big rooms for HK with an excellent bathroom and desk. The design of the space is really well thought and I was impressed with the layout.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
