Review: Hong Kong’s Ovolo Hotel – Outlook Traveller

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There are hotels. And then there’s Ovolo. Where the minibar is no-questions-asked free, the WiFi is sumptuous, and the sleep is sound (if, in Hong Kong, you are destined for any).

I was invited to review the Ovolo hotels for Outlook Traveller and found myself on a red-eye to Hong Kong one night in April 2013. After two nights of gallivanting in Hong Kong, I swung down the hemisphere to Melbourne to review another Ovolo. In Hong Kong, the Ovolo group has a slew of hotels and serviced apartments. It is the leader in the boutique hotel segment. And it’s clearly the place to stay if you’re in Central.

My Melbourne review appeared in July 2013, and my review of the Hong Kong Ovolo followed in April 2014, a whole year after I had visited.

Here’s an excerpt of the Hong Kong review:

Ovolo’s flagship hotel at 2 Arbuthnot Road, with its welcoming Cafe O on the ground floor, is bung in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong. LKF to the with-it, this square of closely stacked streets is where expats flock to brunch, drink, club and dine. Pleasant smells waft from the restaurants after lunchtime and the night is always young.

    it was a pleasure to host you Bijoy and thank you for the terrific write-up. I do hope Hong Kong enters your plans again soon as we have a new hotel on the South Coast (with restaurant and rooftop bar) that we would LOVE to show you.

    All the best,

      Thank you for leaving a comment, Marius. Yes, I have plans to visit Hong Kong with the family in May for my daughter’s seventh, which she plans to celebrate in Disneyland. Will email you closer to the date, after we firm up plans. Hope the political climate improves by then.
