A Trendy Stay at Ovolo Central—Where Pooches are also Welcome

Lan Kwai Fong is known for its party district reputation, yet up in the highest hilltop of the bustle, Ovolo Central offers a trendy respite away from the noise. The urban sanctuary is a design-led boutique hotel, part of Hong Kong-born Ovolo group, and has recently been praised globally for its implementation of vegetarian-only menus across all its hotels—the first hotel group in the world to do so. Taking a short one-night break away from downtown crowds, we drop by the swanky hotel where complimentary minibars and Hong Kong’s first hotel vegetarian restaurant await.

Central location


As the group’s flagship out of its three Hong Kong properties and several Australian outposts, Ovolo Central is where it all began. Conveniently located on Arbuthnot Road, between Lan Kwai Fong and Soho, guests can be at a chic bar or Michelin-starred restaurant within a mere few minutes’ walk from the hotel. Tai Kwun is also adjacent to the hotel, an arts and culture hub worth visiting for those new in town.
