This October, Ovolo one of Hong Kong’s largest independent hotel and serviced apartment operators celebrates its 10 year anniversary with the launch of a new flagship hotel: Ovolo 2 Arbuthnot Road (Ovolo 2AR). Located bang in the heart of Central, Ovolo 2AR features 42 spacious guest rooms with all the intelligent luxuries that Ovolo is famous for. Ovolo 2AR officially launches on 10th October 2012. It offers overseas guests the best of all worlds combining style, comfort and convenience, and is perfectly positioned in a quiet location just above Wyndham Street and Soho, mere steps away from the city’s most sought-after restaurants, bars, clubs and shops.
Ovolo 2AR boasts one of Hong Kong’s most spacious centrally-located hotel rooms. Designed by award-winning Hong Kong firm KplusK Associates, each studio suite includes: a bedroom cum office – featuring a walnut desk and designer ergonomic chair, an impressively-sized bathroom decorated in onyx and marble, as well as all of the newest on-demand features. And with only two rooms per floor, guests are ensured the upmost in privacy and comfort during their stay.
“Ten years ago we revolutionised the serviced apartment industry in Hong Kong,” says Girish Jhunjhnuwala, Founder and CEO of Ovolo. “Today, we are doing it again with a new evolution of hotels that cater fully to our guest’s needs.”
Perfect for both business and leisure, Ovolo 2AR has thought of simply everything that guests coming to Hong Kong might need (or simply just enjoy) and better yet, it’s all included. Suites are fully equipped with new Apple TVs, free high-speed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so that TV screens can be used to showcase business presentations. The complimentary mini bar features a premium selection of miniature liquors that is replenished daily. It also includes healthy juice options such as Acai Berry juice from The Berry Company in the UK. Caffeine aficionados will appreciate the state-of-the-art Essenza Nespresso machine for morning and mid-afternoon pick-me-ups.
Guests with a nose for luxury will love the MALIN+GOETZ bathroom amenities that are exclusive to Ovolo in Hong Kong, and those with eye for design will appreciate the artwork by well-known local Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin Wah that is featured in each room.
Within the hotel guests are encouraged to make full use of the 24-hour Lo Lounge where complimentary happy hour drinks will be served daily from 6- 8pm. Free Wi-Fi is available for guests to use and in-house iPads can be borrowed.
Other facilities include an on-site gym, which is open day and night, and Café O, where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast with a choice of six different options, snacks and beverages.
Cafe O also features a daily salad bar for health-conscious visitors.

Let’s not forget Ovolo’s 24-hour reception team and OMGs (Ovolo Meet and Greet) who are on call to assist guests with all enquiries from city maps to dinner recommendations.
Situated right in the thick of Hong Kong’s business and entertainment district, Ovolo 2AR is a mere credit card’s toss from The Landmark, Exchange Square, International Finance Centre (IFC), as well as all of the shops, bars and restaurants in the city’s famous party street, Lan Kwai Fong.
