A member of Design Hotels. Hong Kong’s first warehouse-turned-hotel, Ovolo Southside is something you might expect to find more in New York’s Meatpacking District than in Wong Chuk Hang. The hotel references the area’s industrial past in its design, as seen in the exposed concrete and brick façade, and the utilitarian design of its Lo Lounge. Graffiti and art installations are spread throughout the hotel’s public spaces and offer a striking mix of local and international artists’ works. As with all good design, the hotel does not take itself too seriously. Case in point, a Mao-style meeting room that offers reclining leather armchairs against an exotic Chinese fabric wall, instead of boardroom style seating. Perks such as complimentary breakfast, free daily-replenished minibar, self-service laundry facility, and flexible checkout are but some of the many reasons that Ovolo Southside is the perfect springboard from which to explore one of the last bastions of authentic Hong Kong.
