Our favourite rooms
Working a muted palette of metallics, brown and beige, the Executive Deluxe rooms feel sleekly modern and spacious and will be your oasis in Hong Kong. Relax on the wonderfully comfy queen-size bed, sink your toes into the patchwork cowhide rug, check your email at the generous desk (backed by a curvy bronze wall), then soak in the ensuite onyx-marble shower (we loved the tear-shaped basins). The feng shui of the rooms on the left felt slightly better to us!
With great-value inclusions spanning free WiFi, minibar treats, Nespresso machine, Apple TV and DVDs, you've got pretty much everything you need ready and waiting. Ear-plugs won't go amiss, though, as you're in the mad-cap centre of the city's party-hard social district.
Ovolo is a smoking-free zone. Ovolo now offers guests city-wide WiFi, so you can stay connected even when you've left the hotel.
Pets are not permitted. See more pet-friendly hotels in Hong Kong.
Welcome: kids up to 12 sharing existing beds stay for free; for those age 12 or above, you'll need to pay HK$385 a child a night.

Kids old enough to enjoy a city break.
Children under 12 can stay for free using existing bedding in any of the Executive Deluxe rooms, which are fairly spacious for Hong Kong. For kids age 12 or older, a charge of HK$385 a child a night applies.
Children of all ages will enjoy riding on the Peak Tram to take in vertiginous views of the city up on the Peak hilltop, where there are also airy routes for strolling. Even a ride on the Mid-levels outdoor escalators is sure to entertain or take the kids across the harbour on the classic Star Ferry. Holllywood Road's fleamarket shops should appeal to culture-savvy teens, or hit the mainstream boutiques in Central. Further afield, entertain the troups with a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland.
The Diner, across the road from the hotel, has a fantastic kids menu with pulled pork and apple slaw burgers, mini mac and cheese, and helathier options such as chicken-salad sandwiches.
