My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights while in Hong Kong and found the service, and location, excellent. We could walk everywhere and there are great restaurants and bars nearby. We knew that hotel rooms would be small in Hong Kong but were surprised by the size of our room. The shower was also updated which was... More

We booked this hotel based on internet blurb, our mistake. It has a cramped reception area and that is the only public space. It trades a lot on what's free, the minibar which consisted of two beers and two waters. The breakfast which is served in a restaurant down the street. Our room was ok but had a view of... More

The location is absolutely second to none, if you like the small Soho places. Smack in the middle. The hotel is small (tall and narrow) and with great rooms. Nicely designed and really well functioning. The reception is tiny, but it works and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is at the neighboring diner and a la carte, which I... More

Having been to HK a few times I knew I wanted to be located in Central for the convenience of getting back for a rest in the middle of crazy busy days.

This is a quiet nice hotel with a good location. The room was spacious and clean and had a good space for working. Apple TV if you want to look at movies from your own collection in iTunes. The WiFi had excellent coverage and speed, and was of course free.

I stayed in Ovolo Central because I was tempted by its advertised freebies and I was not disappointed. Free mini bar, snacks, breakfast (which is amazing btw), as well as a ton of facilities and gadgets in the room seems too good to be true, but that is exactly what I got!

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood 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.
