Looking for a fun hotel in Hong Kong with slick design, stylish rooms and all the goodies you could ever need? We’ve gotcha covered. Ovolo Southside Hotel is a warehouse hotel in Wong Chuk Hang, with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.
Free mini bar? Boom. Rooftop cocktails? Yep. It’s got it all, and it’s just an 8-minute MTR ride from Admiralty so you can be in the city centre in a flash.
It’s a sleek boutique hotel with warehouse vibes
Ovolo Southside is Hong Kong’s first warehouse-conversion boutique hotel, with a huge car park-like lobby that instantly wows with neon lights and edgy art. The hotel takes inspiration from the district it’s in; Wong Chuk Hang is known as the “South Island Cultural District,” with a large number of art galleries scattered across the suburb.
Rooms are what you imagine a New York loft to look like, with welcome treats and hi-tech
There’s eight unique rooms types – including two signature Rockstar Suites, which would make even Mick Jagger feel right at home. The rooms here are what every hotel room should be like. There’s a free mini bar (grab the carafe and fill it with wine from the bar!), plenty of plug sockets, a ‘loot bag’ with nibbles, gorge smelling toiletries and blackout blinds. Heaven.
Plus, some rooms have sweeping views across the South Island.
With the greatest tunes from AC/DC to Prince, you can pump your playlist and hear all the hits on Radio Ovolo on Spotify in the room, ask Alexa anything you like and watch Netflix on the Apple TV.
Lonely? They’ve thought of that, too. Ring down to reception and they’ll send you up a body pillow to snuggle. Guests also have access to a 24-hour gym and self-serve laundry.
There’s funky artworks everywhere you glance – keep an eye out for the John Lennon thumbtack piece
Bright, bright bold pieces greet you from the very moment you walk into the hotel. Key contemporary artworks by Patrick Rubinstein, Max Steven Grossman and George Mead, along with a number of sculptural works and lenticular art, line the walls of almost every public space. It’s safe to say Ovolo Southside is an art lover’s dream!
A daily Happy Hour, taco bar and rooftop bar provide signature cocktails and bites to eat
Feast on the tastiest tacos in the city at Te Quiero Mucho, the hotel’s LA-inspired taco bar. Or, grab some sharing plates upstairs at Komune on the colourful terrace, covered in fairy lights. Daily Social Hour runs from 5-7pm with snacks and boozy drinks. Where else will you find a free happy hour?
For sunset views, head to ABOVE rooftop bar for a creative cocktail and amazing views. One thing’s for sure, Ovolo Southside is a top choice for a stay in HK that’s stylish, a little bit on the wild side and effortlessly cool. Just like the city itself, right?
