2 Arbuthnot Rd, Hong Kong
There’s one word that’s used a lot in the Ovolo brand: complimentary. Everything from the daily continental breakfast to in-room mini-bars, super high-speed WiFi and even on-site self-serve laundry facilities—all free!
And this hotel knows how to talk to guests, with witty signage throughout the property. The brand claims to have created their properties based solely on the guest’s needs and perspectives, and it genuinely appears to be the case with Ovolo.
Ovolo just launched a new property called Ovolo Southside (also in Hong Kong), and it appears to include all (and more) of the great things that make the Ovolo brand a "people's brand."
Rooms are fairly straightforward “modern contemporary,” and certainly won’t win any design awards in our book, but they are very comfy and well-laid out, which is really all we ask for.
All rooms are a decent 33sqm, with a comfortable queen size bed and large work desk with ergonomic office chair. The hotel also offers a flexible check-in/check-out policy, free access to Y5Zone WiFi hotspots around Hong Kong, and use of a mobile phone that guests can use around town for free (calls and internet access).
The hotel has only two room types: executive deluxe and executive premier—the only difference being that executive rooms occupy higher floors. As the hotel is located in Central and very close to the heart of the busy (i.e., noisy) Lan Kwai Fong nightlife area, the higher floors can be worth it (though even the high floors are not immune to rowdy street noises on busy weekend nights).
For a more peaceful experience, the group's Southside property might be a better option.
