What you get here is a great location and a large, comfortable and superbly equipped room with some extras such as a free minibar and snack selection. Plus the reception and door staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The ground floor cafe offers a decent breakfast and the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended.

The rooms are small compared to North American hotels however, the room was compact, clean, comfortable. The staff super friendly and helpful. Free mini bar and Happy Hour where you get to meet people from all over the world. Would stay here again. Walking distance to ferry terminals and easy access to all transport and wonderful restaurants and shopping.

Ovolo Central is a fantastic hotel in a great location. We had not been to Hong Kong before so the hotel was in a perfect location to explore the city.

Stayed here while en route to New Zealand. Had five nights and enjoyed them greatly. Firstly, the quality of the rooms and the amenities within the rooms are immaculate.

We had three nights at this lovely hotel while on route to New Zealand.

The hotel is ideally located walking distance to most businesses in Central (if you are there on business) and within walking distance of all of the great restaurants in LFK and Soho.

Nice room with free inclusive mini bar. Friendly staff and good location if you like to be social as right at the top of LKF.

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.
