“My 'own' private room at Ovolo Arbunoth Road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

What a quirky hotel! Love it to nuts.
Conveniently located above Lan Kwai Fong, central shopping district, Soho, etc - just a walk down the slopes. The entrance to the hotel is not loud so much so one can just miss it if not alert enough. However once one gets into the room it's totally different picture. Spacious room with a king sized bed, free mini bar and a 'loot' bag containing tidbits which are replenished daily. The decor is just what I would like for my own room!

Stayed recently for 2 nights and then another 3 nights.
Location is good for restaurants, bars and the mid levels region. It is a big walk up the hill from the Central shops. If you know your way around it is a bit easier. Its also a steep walk down to the shops and mtr.
The rooms are on the small side. No good for more than 3 people. But they are extremely well planned, modern and functional.
Internet works really well. Included breakfast at cafe downstairs is also good.
Reception area is small and personal.
Overall fit out of the Hotel is tasteful and functional.
The best part about staying here is the the staff. They really do go out of their way to greet and look after you. Top marks for personal service, thank you very much.
In summary great business hotel, will be back. Also worth noting unlike the the LKF Hotel just below, you do not get the loud bar noise in this location.

Room Tip: Ask for biggest room available.

OK, this is just about a perfect boutique business hotel in my opinion. It has a lovely breakfast option, wonderful staff, a nice happy hour and a wonderful element of style. The rooms were spacious, though not high ceilings, and had very nice amenities. The location was perfect for my needs. A quick walk to offices, LKF and other restaurants. It didn't have a large gym but a few machines, though I wouldn't have expected much more in central hong kong. Really a wonderful experience and I would happily go back.

I was in Hong Kong for business and loved the Ovolo 2 - it would also be great for a personal trip. Breakfast at the O Cafe (which was included) was healthy and delicious and lost of choices; trendy rooms which were quite roomy by HK standards, evening happy hours and free mini-bar...and lastly the super friendly staff.
Also, the hotel is really close to Central - about a 5-10 minute walk to all my meetings, then right in LKF and close to Soho to go out at night and generally explore the city by day.
I'd go back for sure.

I really enjoyed my Ovolo experience.
Like anything trying to do things different .. some things work and somethings don't.
Nice fresh design with quirk amenity and in room products.
Staff very attentive (even though there was only 2).
I found the hotel a little too close to Lan Kwai Fong for my liking .. but otherwise wold appreciate this.
Breakfast was voucher system in the Cafe O downstairs. basic.
but it is what you need to start the day.
loved my Malin+Goetz Bathroom Amenities :-)

i would stay again ... but chose a diff location.

Dear Thomas,

Thanks for the no-nonsense review! We do do things a little different at Ovolo and when guests like you make note of our fresh design and amenity choices it really means a great deal to us. All your notes, including on breakfast have been shared with our team here.Thank you much!

You said you'd stay again at Ovolo again but perhaps at a different location. Great to hear! We have several hotels in HK, each with their own signature designs and features, and would be delighted to host you anytime. Drop me a line should Ovolo be in your travel plans again. Thanks for staying!

Cheers,
Marius Gamser

Clean, modern, comfortable and near everything you want to do in downtown Hong Kong. About 45 minutes from Airport by cab. From outside hotel looked like narrow building but inside its futuristic with chrome and copper all around. Check in was fine. Service team went above and beyond in suggesting things to do and see during my stopover. Only thing is that is a little pricey for a 1 bedroom but you do get a great location with modern design. Breakfast is included and they also serve free wine, beer and snacks in the lounge in the evenings. Recommend you try it if you want something a little different.

Room Tip: Single lane road outside hotel. Next time I'll book in advance online and save quite a bit.

This hotel is for you if: you are on a budget and/or you want to be close to the night life of HK and/or you do not care to walk up three block with a gradient of 30 degrees to get to it. It is not for you if:You want something more than a room, (like a real reception or a little breakfast lounge) and/or you want access to the MTR without having to get an aerobic workout on your way back and/or you want a view to something. I am not going back, ever, I do not care about free minibar drinks, free breakfast in the adjacent joint, etc. Way overrated, you can even hear the noise from LKF from the 10th floor way into the night.....

Dear urufenta,

Thank you for sharing your views on tripadvisor. We are sorry to hear that you didn’t have the best time at Ovolo 2 Arbuthnot Road.

I certainly understand not wanting an aerobic workout on arrival so please know for next time that there is an escalator on Wyndham Street that runs right next to our hotel. On your other points - we always try our hardest with the space available to provide whatever guests want in the best possible manner, and this has been received well by other reviewers on this page. We regret that we came up short for you this time.

We don't want to be an average hotel - but for good reasons!! Please let me know if you have any further comment at guestservices@ovologroup.com. Ovolo loves feedback and we’d very much like the chance to host you again.

Cheers,
Marius Gamser
