“Small but functional”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

With the help of Agoda, i was able to get a good deal for my stay at Ovolo Hotel. I was very impressed with what they were able to do with such a small space.

PROS:
near a train station
if you have the time and energy to walk to where Coach/LKF is, then it is walkable.
Clean Room
Friendly and accommodating staff
Great common area with free drinks and snacks
Everything in the mini bar is free!
They provide you with things other luxury hotels dont even bother thinking about:
- hair straightening iron
- complimentary travel sack with snacks inside to keep you fueled for the day. (we used ours for the hike we did)
- free mini bar (it deserves a second mention)
- their shampoo, conditioner and body wash is of good quality. (i am familiar with the brand so i know it is of good quality)
- everything was working well (tv, automatic curtain, a/c, shower)
- what you see in the photos are exactly how things are when you check in. everything is in good condition.

Cons:
- room space: not spacious enough if two guests have large luggages with them.
: not spacious enough if you are not of asian built.
*because i am of asian built and only one of us had a luggage, the rooms space was just right for us.

- i would say that guests that would stay in this location would normally have a business purpose as the location is surrounded by offices and small business. if it is your first time in hong kong, i might suggest you stay in a more happening location.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and was really pleased with the location, staff and amenities. The hotel is a short walk from Sheung Wan tube station and there are lots of good places to eat within short walking distance. The room was compact but well laid out making it very comfortable. Good clean bathroom, comfortable bed and enough storage space. The guest lounge was excellent and we used it every day for both meetings and happy hour! The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again if its available and recommend it highly.

The hotel is perfectly placed near to the Sheung Wan MTR station in Central, and is close to everything you need. The rooms were small, but really well fitted, with all the mod-cons, and great amenities.

The staff were always very friendly and super-helpful. We really enjoyed our time there. Free wifi, minibar and happy hour were definite pluses, but small gripe about the minibar and a/c in our room not cooling properly, and the really slow lifts - minor irritations but not a big deal.

We will definitely be back....!

We stayed here for 10 nights and were pleasantly suprised. We read a lot of reviews that talked about how small the rooms were and we actually found the room to be bigger than we expected. The rooms are small but the space is used very efficiently and we didn't ever feel cramped. The best part about staying here was all of the extra amenities. The wifi really is super fast and the free minibar was great. One of the freebies was a cloth backback that we actually used for an entire month in SE Asia. The free Wifi outside of the hotel was also a huge convenience, all we had to do was find a McDonalds or Starbucks and they are everywhere. Breakfast was good and there was enough variety that we didn't get sick of the food. Overall we were very happy with this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher is better!

Dear Will S,


At Ovolo we fit as many smart features in at every point of the guest experience as we can, and when reviewers like you note all the little details, it really encourages us to keep pushing the envelope. Should you require any assistance for future trips to Hong Kong, please feel free to contact myself or my team direct on gigitse@ovologroup.com.

Excellent hotel. Good location on Queen's Rd, Central. Out of the commercial centre but still within easy walking distance. Rooms are compact but well designed and easy to live in. Good amenities with very attractive guest lounge, a gym and a guest laundry. Bed is very comfortable (a must!). And nice little touches such as free mini-bar. I didn't use it, but it was nice to know it was there without the gouging prices that typically go with hotel mini-bars. Staff were very friendly, efficient and attentive. Negatives were quite minor. Lifts are very slow and the restaurant attached to the hotel is just ok (but there are plenty of good places to eat nearby).

First time to Hong Kong, and this is ideally placed for getting there from the airport, close to a wide range of nearby bars and restaurants, easy transport to other areas on the Island, The west area of Central is much better than the more commercial (and flatter) east area. Of course the rooms are small, but extremely well designed and comfortable. Great toiletries and little gifts - makes all the difference (love the backpack :)) Breakfast was okay as a quick grab of coffee and toast, but not spectacular. Altogether a great choice for a few days holiday here

Room Tip: The higher the better, although noise wasn't an issue

Decided on a shopping trip to Hong Kong and had only 1 week to decide where I was going to stay. Picked Ovolo 286 based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and also based on amenities that its website claimed to have - wasn't disappointed at all!

A welcome email deck with instructions on how to find the hotel and some places around the hotel that visitors could check out, was received 2-3 days before arrival - such thoughtful gestures!

It was a tricky situation when we arrived at the hotel, as there is no proper drop-off point in front of the hotel, and there are actually barriers along the pavement such that when the taxi stops in front of the hotel, you would seem a little trapped. But overlooking this little inconvenience, we proceeded to the entrance of the hotel, which is actually a small door beside it's affiliated Cafe O.

You would have to take the lift up to the 2nd floor to reach the reception. There is occasionally someone manning the desk at the ground floor - but he is probably just in charge of security and your luggages. Check-in (and check-out) was a breeze with the friendly staff and they are pretty fluent in English (superb plus point there).

We stayed in 1403, which is a City Queen room. The room is on the small side, and we had 2 large luggages with us, so we had to place 1 at the entrance and 1 beside the bed to allow some walking space within the room. A loot bag with some snacks was provided, but this was not replaced after we finished the chips and biscuits (so it might just be a one-off bag of goodies? check with the staff if you need more). The mini-bar was filled with 4 bottles of water, 2 packets of juices, a bottle of sparkling water and 2 bottles of Tsing Tao beers - which are replenished daily. Pretty good range given that this is inclusive in your room rate. Wifi is also available throughout the hotel and it's stable.

The toiletries provided are very good! The mint shampoo and the cilantro conditioner smelt so awesome! Toothbrushes, cotton pads, cotton buds were also provided in the toilet. The only gripe about the room was that regardless whether the rain shower or the normal hand-held shower was used, the water would somehow overflow out of the cubical and the whole bath mat would be soaked and if the bath mat wasn't placed strategically, some water might overflow on to the room floor too.

The LO Lounge which is essentially a communal area behind the reception area with sofa and tables, has a happy hour going on daily between 6-8pm. Don't expect bartenders to be mixing drinks for you. Head to the counter and mix your gin and tonic or coke & vodka. Cheeses with crackers, tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole, and cookies are also placed at the counter for you to go with your drinks.

We made use of the 24-hour self-laundry as well as the dry-cleaning services.

Breakfast, though the range was limited, had the essentials of bread, pastries, sausages, eggs, yoghurt and cereals. What I liked about the breakfast was coffee served wasn't just black coffee, you could choose flat white, latte, mocha etc., and the tea selections included chamomile, green tea and earl grey/english breakfast.

Location-wise, this hotel is close to tons of food options. Mcdonalds is just across the street, Starbucks less than a 5 minutes walk. Cupping Room - an independent cafe is also just around Mcdonalds and they won some local barista championship before - they have standard brunch items in the morning as well. The famous Sang Kee Congee shop was also within walking distance @ Burd Street. If you are like us and love a "challenge", take the flight of stairs and walk all the way up to get to Yardbird - not for the faint-hearted those steps!

Sheung Wan MTR is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel more food options await you as you stroll to take the train.

All in all, I really love my stay in Ovolo - the location, the friendly staff, the amenities were way beyond my expectation.
