The Hong Kong art scene is all about Wong Chuk Hang, in the lesser visited south of Hong Kong island – a previously residential and light industrial part of town, now taken over by artist studios, bars and restaurants, underground parties and all things cool. At the heart of it all, you’ll find the new Ovolo Southside, part of a family of properties across the city known for its affordable luxury. Hong Kong’s first warehouseturned- hotel, this is a nice attempt at buying into the hipster-hotel scene, with exposed concrete and industrial features throughout, and contemporary art peppered across the property. Rooms were compact, but extremely well designed, akin to sleeping in a glass cube, sadly not looking out at very much. Other perks include a free mini-bar, chilled-out staff, complimentary breakfast (which was a little hectic), a self-service laundry and free rides into the city via hotel shuttle or ‘online offers’ via the hotel’s partner taxi firm. A good option for those who want to be part of Hong Kong’s in-the-know crowd.
