Ovolo Central, Hong Kong’s conveniently located designer hotel on Arbuthnot Road, has been transformed into a stimulating space that pays tribute to the fun and playful atmosphere of Central, and brings a fresh hospitality concept to downtown.
Just a stone’s throw away from Hong Kong’s most famous landmarks, including SoHo, Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage & Arts, the city’s iconic escalators, and Hollywood Road’s antique stores and art galleries, Ovolo Central is at the heart of the action, with unbeatable proximity to Hong Kong’s lively bars and renowned restaurants.
The very first Ovolo to ever exist, Ovolo Central unveils a brand new façade – a delicate, glazed black metal grid – that creates a user-friendly, residential expression. Its transparency increases natural daylight and ventilation to the interiors and now features four new entrances, with a lobby seating area that showcases a modern fireplace, alongside Ovolo’s signature ‘globe’ light and stainless steel ‘egg wall’. The ground floor and the lower floor are connected by a linear staircase, allowing additional daylight to filter in, inviting people to move easily between levels.
The boutique designer hotel features an array of unique and edgy design elements and channels a modern, funky aesthetic replete with custom-made artworks, luxurious fabrics and design accents riffing on the city’s East-meets-West heritage. A standout is the first-floor state-of-the-art meeting room, which also connects onto a spacious balcony, with a curated art collection by MAKE throughout the space. Boasting 41 spacious rooms, each with its own edgy, rock’n’roll vibe and unique commissioned artworks, Ovolo Central promises a cosy and comfortable stay.
The new Platinum rooms, designed by Monique McLintock Interior, showcase exposed windows, sleek TV displays and edgy drinks cabinets, plus a generous range of standard stay inclusions, from free super-speed Wi-Fi, free happy hour drinks and an in-room Nespresso machine, to free laundry, free gym access and an in-room Amazon Alexa.
Most noteworthy is Ovolo Central’s Radio Suite, designed by award-winning firm ALT 254, which spans the entire top floor of the hotel measuring 65 square metres. Featuring an unbeatable view and a sleek, modern design, the suite is perfect for today’s modern traveller looking for a one-of-a-kind hotel stay in an entirely original space.
“Right here … Right now! That’s what Ovolo Central is all about,” says Girish Jhunjhnuwala, founder and CEO of Ovolo Hotels Group.
“Ovolo Central was my very first hotel, and what we’ve created here is a ‘New Sensation’ right in the epicentre of Hong Kong. An exciting new look and feel that is bursting with Ovolo personality. So our shiny, happy guests not only get to experience cool art, original designs, great music and our fantastic new vegetarian restaurant VEDA, they get it all in an unmatched location.”
