Well I was surprised with this little hotel and how compact yet efficient it was. Two nights with fast check in and checkout service. The room I had was built to accommodate disabled people and had all the facilities one would need if you are traveling by wheelchair. I am able bodied but amazed to see that all the issues...

The Hotel is very Central , and clean . but unfortunately my room was on the 7th Floor direct over the street and the bus-stop , so whoever stayed in Hong Kong knows how noisy that is , and its not very helpful if you have the next day meetings. Further the Hotel in General has a very bad noise...

Ovolo Central is a surprising hotel. My taxi driver initially had problems finding it. The reason is that the entrance is quite obscure. And when I arrived, I was ushered to the 1st floor reception which was very cosy. The receptionist was very warm and welcoming. But the real selling point was the quality of the rooms. Each floor only...

We only stayed at the hotel for one night, but I was immediately impressed. The staff is friendly and very helpful, the rooms are large for such a city and... they're really cool. Lots of nice things, nespresso with a message, a good sound station, a small but pretty bathroom, a city bag,... And all at a very reasonable price....

My wife and I loved our several days at the Ovolo Hotel. Perfectly located in Soho, this afforded us a great base to walk all the streets of Hong Kong. The staff was very nice, welcoming and worked hard - even helping out in the next door breakfast spot (which is incredibly good breakfast - book direct and get it)....

Stayed here for a number of days and was really impressed. Pros: TONS of free stuff - the mini-bar in the room is completely free and re-stocked every day (vitamin water, water, beer, coke etc), a goody bag when you check in, apples and snacks downstairs, alcohol everyday for happy hour, lots of bathroom amenities etc Very modern room -...

Everything is "high-tech" in the room, I love the creativity and the detail driven comforts plus very interesting interiors. The room is quite expensive but I'd say it's worth it because of the amenities and the freebies. As a guest for an overnight stay, I felt pampered. Password for their wifi is "batman" which I find cute. Bed comfy and...

Certainly not a four or five star hotel. Very expensive indeed, air conditioner didn't work so had to open the windows, very noisy. No restaurant. Bed uncomfortable, hotel covered in scaffolding. I have stayed in several other HK hotels. This one does not rate.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
