From the minute we stepped in the front door we were welcomed as though we were family. Such a well located hotel with dedicated staff and a GM (Stephan) who keeps a close eye on every detail. This hotel is a gem with a free mini bar re- stocked each day and staff who could not be more helpful with...

This hotel is ideally sited and may not be a 5 star but the staff and the freebies make it the place to stay in Central. The rooms are suprisingly spacious and being able to do your own laundry is a big plus. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff really made our stay great.

My wife and I stayed at the Ovolo Central on July 1-5, 2016 and cannot recommend it more highly. It's not a five-star experience like the Mandarin Oriental or the Ritz Carlton, but it's also less than half the cost of those hotels. Instead, Ovolo Central focuses on providing great value for money. Our room was more than large enough...

This was the second hotel I stayed at in Hong Kong and it was light years ahead of the other boutique hotel I stayed at. I had to check out of my other room at noon and Ovolo was gracious enough to let me check in early at 11 am. The room was clean, spacious, great bathroom and my favorite...

Stayed here for the last weekend in May. Had heard about the noise over the weekend so requested the top floor room which we were kindly given.

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.
