    Free drinks (included in the hotel prize), modern, nice design, seperated rooms!

    Far from the Olympic MTR (not 5min walk)

    It has a very modern look to it..... Clean and sleek.... Great for young people.... Rooms are small but good enough for sleep...

    Decor of the whole Hotel from entrance to reception to the rooms. Though the first room I was given had not been cleaned but the staff made up with another room very quickly.

    Not very good for taxis pick up, Or getting to the public transport

    The best part about Ovolo is the place is designed exactly like a small apartment -- with 2 bedrooms and high tech devices including satellite tv, apple ipod charging dock, etc. I would have loved to stay there if I am an expat working in the city, because it's small but cozy with most appliances available.

    Problem with the place is rates aren't exactly cheap -- it costs close to usd200+ a night. Further, deposit to place for a night is crazy --- hkd 2000 which easily eats away a huge part of my cash. Reason? Because there are many expensive appliances in the apartment according to the staff. Second problem is the place is actually not that near to Tsim Sa Tsui - hkd 55 to go to Kowloon Airport Express station, 10 mins to walk to nearest Shen Shui Po mtr (forget about Nam Cheong station - no one walks there at night!).

    Staff are very helpful especially Mr. Steven who have been very accommodating, helpful and friendly. The room is small but very clean, good facilities and have a variety of in-room amenities such as ipod dock, dvd player, full kitchen utensils and more. The hotel is beautifully designed. Breakfast are very basic but there's a lot of small local restaurants near the hotel. It is worth the money to stay here especially if you want to spend your money not for your room bill but for shopping.

    Liked the modern funky look of the rooms. Kids loved access to Apple TV, DVD's and Cable. Complimentary breakfast and complimentary self serve drinks throughout the day. Being in a residential area gave you access to cheaper shopping through local markets and only 10 minutes walk to MTR.

    Wind noise throughout building. No door in bathroom area was a problem when sharing with older children.

    1. The bed and pillows 2. The space - well-catered for a family weekend get-together.

    1. Breakfast spread (extremely limited choice) 2. No shuttle to MTR stations

    We stayed 3 nights in October 2011 and it was -in general- a good experience and a good place to crash after long -fun- days at hk Disney and Ocean Park. The room had three tiny but comfortable bedrooms. Same as for toiled (really tight) and bathroom, but ok. The big -common- area had a large tv that worked at 50% with only one input to change between appliances (dvd, cabletv receptor, music-media player, etc) and somehow, were never able to connect the Ipad as supposed... Still, the big sofa was quite comfortable and even when we used little, it was a nice area to share as a family. The small room had 4 big and fully functional air conditioners (1 in each bedroom + 1 in the common area), that was great. Wi-Fi was pretty good. Staff was quite friendly and helpful.

    It was a nice stay, however I found quite upsetting that some things stated and offered in the website were completely non-existent!... For example: a kitchenette??? Is that how you call a microwave and a water heater?... No way you can cook anything but warming... A few spoons and 3 glasses, no plates! Laundry: nothing to do laundry on the building and when we asked for paying for it, got warned that it was 33 hk$ for 7 pounds... We said ok and then... The guy in reception warned us -once more- that if the laundry company had much hotel laundry to get done (it was holiday and the city was quite busy), our stuff could get aside and it could be -even- a problem to get it back before leaving, 2 days later... What's that?... He even said with a shy smile: "is like we have no laundry service sometimes"!!! -- The info says: "Guests can have breakfast at the hotel’s lounge. A variety of local and international dishes are served"... Where at??? ... all we saw in 3 mornings were bread, fruit, cereal, coffee and juice...The room itself was quite fine. Some very small areas like bedrooms, bathroom and -specially- the toilet. No nice restaurants near by -or at least that the reception knows of- and the walk to and from the Nam Cheong station didn't feel so safe -specially when coming back from hk Disney at night, after fireworks- . The hotel is surrounded by old and poor tiny housing buildings... Not a nice area at all. Taxis struggled to find it, probably due to the same location and neighbor fact. I'm recommending the hotel to stay, because -in general- it was a positive experience and worth the price, however, we will try to find something pretty similar, but in a better location, next time.

    The hotel is located 5 minutes from subway station. The stuff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast included and happy hour everyday with free alcohol.

    Nothing, we checked out of the hotel after the first night as it was not what was advertised.

    What was advertised is not what we received. No cooking facilities, room set up for 5 people but crockery for 2. No laundry facilities on site even though it is on your website and theirs.

  • Group of friends

    Room clean and new, although the rooms were small. Staff pleasant. Evening drinks were a nice bonus.

    Breakfast was the worst and narrowest where ever I was. Cereal, white toast, juice, water, apple and coffee vending machines. 5000 HKD additional assurance of payment in writing in connection was not nice. However, when the book was returned to the room was intact upon delivery. Shabbiness hotel is located in the middle of the local population. Two different metro was about the same walk of about 0.5 km. Apartment bathroom / shower room door system was poorly designed.

  • Group of friends

    Great value for money for business travellers; very helpful staff; only 10 minutes to nearest MTR station; 'off-island' location means good value local shops and services

    'Bedrooms' within room very small, even by Asian standards. No door to bathroom - frosted screen was only privacy when using shower - very strange!

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The room is sutiable for a family staying, even the space is not so big, but it's very comfortable for staying with a short vacation. Besides,, the room is also neaat, and there are a nice bed and living room. The hotel location is near market, but it's not far away from mtr, so it's also very convenient for traviling.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The view from the room was good, the reception staff were good and understood english well. You are able to use the on site ipad on request with free wi-fi.

    Nothing really just the location as it is far from the city.
