We recently embarked on a "VIPooch Staycation" at this remarkable establishment to explore what makes it an ideal destination for both pet owners and their four-legged companions.
Here are the five reasons why this place made us paws for applause:

1) Convenient Location
Nestled in Wong Chuk Hang, Ovolo Southside's location offers a sweet spot for your stay. Just a hop, skip, and jump from the MTR station, this converted warehouse hotel promises accessibility. Surrounding the hotel, you'll find picturesque walks, ideal for both humans and their canine companions.

Here, spacious accommodations set Ovolo Southside apart from the crowd, a rare find in the heart of Hong Kong's bustling urban jungle. The ample room provides the perfect playground for your pets, ensuring they can stretch their legs and tails to their heart's content. Our choice was the Connecting Room Suite, where our furry friends reveled in comfort.
3) Pet-Friendly Public Spaces
One of the charms of Ovolo Southside is the "pawsitively" inclusive policy. Your furry pals are welcome (nearly) everywhere, including the hotel's restaurant and lounge areas. We put this to the test, bringing our work to the lounge, where we savoured complimentary coffee and tea while our pets soaked in the ambiance. The restaurant even has a happy hour deal – quite the treat for pet-loving patrons.
4) Tail-Wagging Amenities
The real doggone delight is the tail-wagging amenities specially curated for your pets. At check-in, we received adorable goodie bags packed with treats, eco-conscious waste bags, and collapsible water cups courtesy of BuddyBites. Plus, the selection of toys and cushy beds ensures your pets enjoy the lap of luxury during their stay.
5) Good Vibes and Friendly Staff
The friendly faces at Ovolo Southside are more than just hotel staff; they're passionate pet enthusiasts. Eager to cater to your every need, their love for pets shines through in their warm service, ensuring both you and your furry companions feel right at home.
