Hotel Ovolo Central

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

If you want to be in the thick of Hong Kong’s after-dark action, this boutique hotel in Central is the one for you.

Tucked in a skinny skyscraper up and around the corner from the Lan Kwai Fong party zone, you can easily roll from your room to the clubs and back again.

Rooms are slick and unfussy, with bold modern art prints and statement wallpaper in the common areas.

Vegetarians and vegans will love the all-veggie Veda restaurant, while the 24-hour gym, laundrette and just two rooms per floor makes it feel like you’ve got your very own city centre crash pad.

Despite the high-octane location, it’s surprisingly quiet and peaceful.

Surrounding area

Skimming along the hillside in Central, Arbuthnot Road – where the Ovolo is located – runs from the 19th-century Magistrate’s Court to the Hong Kong Botanical Gardens.

Although shadowed by a forest of skyscrapers, the street itself is surprisingly quiet, especially considering the city’s main party zone, Lan Kwai Fong is just a few minutes’ walk away.

There’s plenty to do within walking distance; Man Mo Temple, Cat Street’s antique shops, and the Tai Kwun Arts and Heritage Centre.

It’s a 15-minute uphill walk from the nearest MTR station (Central) so check out the buses for stops closer to the hotel.
