An extra little something

Perfect for young travellers and tech-buffs, Ovolo at 2 Arbuthnot Road offers every gadgets and amenity you could hope for to let you bounce into the heart of Hong Kong with a spring in your step. And best of all, everything - from the minibar and in-room snacks to a late checkout - is free!

Top Secret

In place of a conventional ground floor entrance, Ovolo Southside has the G.I.G. Gallery – hosting a variety of activities, including art exhibits, pop-up stores, fashion shows and private parties. 

Origins

Ovolo Southside’s tagline – “warehouse to wanderlust” – is an appropriate description for their clever conversion of an old industrial building into a hip design hotel

The Review

A short car ride away from Central Hong Kong, Ovolo Southside is an escape from the city that offers a refreshing change of scenery in an up-and-coming artsy neighborhood of Aberdeen. The brand’s playful personality injects a fun energy into all aspects of the hotel, whether it’s surprising art pieces, stylish furniture or colorful corridor lighting. Floor-to-ceiling windows in each bedroom make it tempting to stay in bed all day and soak up the views and sunshine.

Friendly staff and thoughtful hotel amenities make the chic design elements come together to create a warm sense of hospitality. All guests receive a welcome bag of snacks and can enjoy the mini bar, breakfast, gym, Wi-Fi, Apple TV, self-service laundry, and shuttle bus, among other perks, free of charge. The “Ovolo Handbook” not only provides helpful hotel information but also serves as a guidebook to the surrounding area, which is emerging as a vibrant art district and is home to two of the city’s main attractions: Ocean Park and Jumbo floating restaurant. 

Beyond hospitality, Ovolo Southside seeks to build community within its walls by bringing guests together for happy hour and all-day complimentary treats in Lo Lounge, a chill-out space next to the lobby with a pool table and couches arranged for socializing. The restaurant, CIRQLE, maintains a casual vibe with an open kitchen and large outdoor terrace. Its Mediterranean style Easy-Asian cuisine is fresh and experimental – the same adjectives that describe the overall atmosphere of the hotel. A visit wouldn’t be complete without a drink at the aptly named ABOVE bar on the rooftop, where a DJ sets the mood for you to sip a cocktail in what feels like an undiscovered section of town
