“Not clear who the hotel is aimed at”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We live in Hong Kong on an outlying Island but had a party in Aberdeen so I saw the opening offer online and booked a deluxe ocean room. It was a clean but small room, nice bathroom, nice touches with the free stuff, but no bin in the bedroom. We thought it was really far too expensive for what it is, we couldn't work out who the hotel is aimed at. Too pricey for a flash packer and not a holiday destination hotel, you would in my opinion be disappointed to have booked this hotel as a holiday hotel due to lack of facilities. The staff were lovely but it's overpriced.

Love the generosity and Service culture.
Ada and the team are very attentive.
The hotel really looks after its guests.
Complimentary gourmet coffees all day long. The hotel lobby becomes a lounge from 6 to 8 pm with free flow of alcoholic beverages and loads of dips and tidbits. There is a free self service laundry too.

My stay was just 2 weeks after the hotel opened, so they still had some teething problems.

Positives: Helpful staff - Rebecca, Wing and Guy were all keen to make my stay a good one. Comfortable bed, albeit a little short. Soft fluffy towels. Evident "designer" touches and a clear effort to distinguish Ovolo from "me too" hotels (e.g. the giveaway sling bag and cool slippers).

Issues: Inconvenient location - unsuitable for folks traveling to/from Central. Not easy to catch a cab. Uncovered entrance right on a busy street - not good for rainy days. Small room. Dirty bathroom floor (perhaps a new-hotel issue). Shower door angle means plus-size people would struggle to get in/out of the shower. Awkward placement of bedside/master light switch. Uncomfortable TV angle (extended viewing will likely result in a stiff neck). Graveyard view.

I recently stayed at the Ovolo 100 for 5 nights on a business trip to HK and I think you will struggle to find better value anywhere else in HK. The rooms are modern and slightly bigger than the Ovolo 286 that I stayed in earlier this year.

If I had one slight negative in comparison is that for a new hotel the bathrooms could of been better and are already showing some signs of wear and tear - but how much time do you spend in the bathroom?

The communal area is nice and the happy hour is a great touch. Again I would say 286 has a slightly nicer and more upmarket feel to the communal area but this may just be because it was not on the ground floor. But 286 is nearly twice the price.

The staff were all very good - especially the young guy that works in housekeeping today (12th sep) he always seemed to be working hard servicing the rooms but would always make time to talk to the guests.

One final note - i have only been to HK once before and was worried about booking the hotel with it being in Aberdeen and not on the MTR but taxi's are really cheap and you can flag one easily day and night from just outside the hotel. A taxi to central would be around 65 - 75 HKD one way.

I would stay here again.

So i was looking for a hotel in HK as i decided to go there for a long weekend from Europe. Location a little bit out of the the busy hustle and bustle of the city but the night time views make up for it... very romantic. Corner suite was excellent, clean, modern (as pictures) and very comfortable so not one fault for this Hotel.
The staff always did their best to make everything perfect for our stay and they were excellent at making you feel welcome.

Next time i think i will try to stay in a hotel overlooking the harbour city/central (North of island) due to the hassle of having to get a taxi late at night or using the bus during the day aswell as not having a metro stop close by.

My first stay with the Ovolo brand of hotels and definitely one of my best. As i was walking through immigration i was wondering what to expect.on business trips my requirement is pretty simple. Wi-Fi, a comfortable work space in the room, bottled water available, clean bathrooms, and a comfy bed.
As my car pulled up at the Ovolo, the GM Mr. Chum, came out to welcome me. There was no standing at the reception to check in. I was escorted to the lounge and asked if i wanted to eat or drink something. I got to fill the reservation form as i sipped on a cup of organic citron green tea.
I had checked in early so i was given a room on the 10th floor for a few hours. Stunning view. I freshened up and left for a business meet. I got back to the hotel at 8pm and learnt that all my stuff had been put into my new room on the 25th floor.If the view from the 10th floor was stunning, this new view was absolutely breath-taking. Views from all window or Hongkongs residential skyscrapers, the sea in front, a little island dotting the horizon with numerous boats scattered around an an occasional huge cargo ship passing by.
What catches your eye in the room is a ' loot bag'. This neatly packed paper bag is full of goodies.Exciting!! a lot of thought gone into their selections of items in the bag.Im not going to write about what was in, that would be spoiling the surprise. It brought a smile to my face. Theres an ovolo branded sling on bag for you to keep, carry your stuff around with you when you tour the cities of HK.Yes, it's waterproof too!!!! the LED tv was literally on the ceiling at an angle so you could sink into the super comfy bed and watch your favourite movie on a flat back.The amenities in the bathroom are fantastic. I love the rum flavoured body wash and the peppermint shampoo
.During my entire stay the stock was replenished every day, i have to admit i am taking two of them back with me ( rum body wash). The mini bar is stocked with beer, cokes, mineral water, organic sparkling water and berry juices sweetened with fruit extract Being a nutritionist, I was happy to see the level of thought gone into the selection of juices and also the organic mineral water. Guess what!! This is free of cost and the mini bar gets replenished everyday for free too. Never experienced this concept anywhere ever. It’s a feel good factor for sure.

I had sufficient workplace on the long wooden desk to set up my little office space.

The lounge served free coffee, tea, and biscuits/brownies for free thru the day. Between 6 and 8pm they serve hummus and yogurt dips with vegetable sticks, nachos, a cheese board and really nice wine and hard drinks, all for free.

Breakfast was in the lounge, free of cost, consists of juices, milk, team coffee (excellent selection of organic and natural tea blends) cheese boards, cold cuts, white and brown bread, butter, cream cheese, 3 different kinds of muffins. You can make yourself a healthy breakfast with most of these options. They serve boiled eggs too.
The free wi-fi in the hotel is amazing. High speed and never once did the connection break.
There are places to eat around the hotel as well, I found a couple of local joints serving some delicious food.
The bed is comfy, the a/c just right, sufficient space to keep your baggage and hang your clothes, a free laundry ‘do it yourself’ service or you can even ask the staff to assist you.

Extremely warm and kind staff. Genuine smiles always…ALWAYS!!!. That makes a huge difference.
Great music playing 24 hours in the lift, lobby,,,this hotel is vibrant, great energy,,positive vibes,,,
Rebecca, Julie, Kelvin, Chum, were fantastic,,,helped me with some of my many needs…the housekeeping staff is great too, I wish I remembered all their names,,,
The location of the hotel is good. I was able to meet my clients across HK from this base. Taxis easily available outside of the hotel.
You feel at home at the Ovolo. Been here 7 days and 2 more to go, and I just feel so comfortable. Forgot to mention the apple TV in every room and bowls of fruit in the lunge all day for customer to enjoy.
They have thought of every small thing that would make persons stay comfortable.
There is so much good to write about for this place, that I should also mention that it would be nice if a bin was kept somewhere in the bedroom, and not just the bathroom. Actually that’s the only suggestion I have ☺ no matter how much im trying to think of something else that could be improved.
Thank you to all the staff for such a wonderful experience.

I Have uploaded a few pics I clicked as well. Hope everyone else has as good a stay as I did.

The staff were extremely helpful and courteous here. The reception always gave correct and accurate info and guided us every step of the way. Very jovial and fun loving people including the manager.
The hotel simply spoils it's guests with free EVERYTHING !! Breakfast, mini bar, goodies, internet, soft drinks, beer, fruits, tea coffee, brownies, and other knick knacks available for free during happy hour.
Easy access to buses which go to Kowloon, Causeway Bay, Disneyland and Ocean Park.
Thank you Grace and Chum !! See u again in March 2014 !!
