“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We booked into the Ovolo not knowing what to expect, boy it was great ! In the older part of Kowloon (which is better, I think than the new area). The best markets were very close, and the dragon shopping centre was great to shop and eat at. Any way the hotel is very contemporary the room we had was huge with kitchen, lounge and two bedrooms. The manager Terry was THE MOST helpful, I have seen for a long time, and they had a fridge in our room full of complimentary drinks and the every night happy hr from 6-8 where they supply wine,beer,soft,spirits and nuts etc for free! AWESOME , would definitely recommend this hotel,

Room Tip: From what I saw they were all good

I had a four nights stay there in the family suite. My friends were staying in the deluxe suite and it seem bigger than our rooms. Really value for money if anyone was on a budget but location and service wasn't that fantastic.

The Ovolo is modern, clean and good value.
The staff are helpful and provide a free happy hour every afternoon.
The position is not the best, no eateries within at least 700 meters and nothing at all to cater for the foreign tourist. It is old Hong Kong with no frills, but interesting street stalls.
I'd recommend it for 3/4/5 people or families who are not looking for a hotel near shops or restaurants.

I was looking for a hotel in Hong Kong where more than 3 people could share a room. Lucky enough I stumbled upon Hotel Ovolo 256. Pictures on Tripadvisor were quite impressive. And they had 2 Apartment type rooms available that were good for 5 each room. Perfect for hat I was looking for. So I decided to go ahead and book the 2 rooms. Getting to the hotel from the airport was fairly easy. We took the bus and had to walk a bit. Upon arrival at the hotel, check in was a breeze. Especially when the amenities were mentioned. Free round the clock water and soft drinks anytime you can get from the pantry on the first floor. The rooms were awesome too! Breakfast was simple but filling. I will definitely stay at Hotel Ovolo 256 again! Highly recommend it !

Stayed 3 nights with family in the 3-bed apartment in Jan2013. Hotel is very accessible, only 4 stops from Tung Chung line (which can be reached via a free shuttle bus from airport to Tung Chung), after which it is a15min walk or so.

The apartment offers a decently clean and comfortable space for 5. Nothing overtly fanciful, but with enough amenities to make u feel at home. The bedrooms are a little cramped, but this is HK and to be expected. Be aware that from some windows you can see directly into the next apartment (and vice versa), so draw your curtains as appropriate. Like previous reviews, the bathroom and its door can be awkward, but easily averted if you open the door outwards.

Personally I really like this hotel for the neighbourhood it is in. Situated in a local residential area, you get authentic cha chan tengs and even a dai pai dong just around the hotel corner. The 10-15min walk to/from SSP MTR is actually enjoyable, you pass by markets selling fresh produce in the mornings, and at night the Apliu market comes alive (of course the markets open/close at certain times – ask the hotel concierge who also provides good recommendations of eateries around the area).

While it is not as central as Mongkok/Tsim Sha Tsui, this hotel gives you the local vibe which you cannot get in those areas– that is worth the extra few MTR stops. Would recommend this hotel, especially if you are looking to experience HK beyond shopping.

My family, 5 adults and 2 toddlers stayed for 5 nights here last January in their 3 bedrooms unit. Room condition and amenities already described by other users, and my experience was the same, so i wont write it further.

It just that blind curtain in one of the bedroom were fell off when we arrived, and they couldn't fix it until our departed.

About the surrounding when u walked from Sham Shui Po MTR Station, Kieryl already explained it clearly, and i totally aggreed. But you always can take trip from Nam Cheong Station which the surroundings are Nam Cheong Estate, so your stroll will have better view. Off course you must change trains to some destination.

Overall i think Ovolo is value for money and very suitable for family, expecially in Hongkong where space are expensive.

We booked this after reading the reviews on trip advisor and were very pleasantly surprised. Some reviewers complain about location and lack of space. We found these weren't an issue at all. The location was great. We (family of 5) took the train from the airport each pulling a heavy suitcase and found the walk from the MTR to the hotel easy. Also the layout of the room was perfect for us. We really felt at home and enjoyed the small touches such as free minibar, goody bag, Apple TV, etc.
The location is also perfect as it's an easy walk to Nathan Road and Mong Kok.
I'd definitely recommend this and would stay here again.
Only minor gripe: the room key doesn't open the gym door which is downstairs accessible from the street - I had to go back up to level 1 and have the manager come down with me to open it. Apparently there is supposed to be someone in the ground floor office who can let you in but i never saw anyone there during our stay.
