Design lovers are sure to be impressed, the severe glass and steel building that reaches 28 floors is designed by local architect Rocco Yim. Inside William Lim has explored the Chinese philosophy of yin and yang and circular themes. A fantastic inside-outside feeling is fostered by Asia’s largest vertical indoor garden in the lobby.
The rooms are all spacious and offer fantastic views of the city and harbour with chic design details. The outdoor pool and gym on the ninth floor let you work out with a view
There are no less than three restaurants. The Market lets you experience the freneticism of Asia’s street food culture without leaving the four walls of the hotel. Chefs from around the world tempt you with culinary favourites in the internal courtyard. However, Chinese fine dining Above & Beyond is our hot pick—the perfect place for a lazy and indulgent Sunday dim sum.

Bright, dazzling and a little bit brash, the W is the place to check in for a week of fabulously fashionable parties and indulgence. Placed amid the up and coming West Kowloon cultural district the hotel has evolved as the destination for visiting glitteratis to tap into the city’s vibrancy.
The 393 rooms are all decked out in an up-to-the-minute style sure to make even the greatest fashionista question their outfit for a second or two. It’s no wonder Madonna stayed here last time she was in town.

Ovolo may have just mastered Hong Kong’s space problem with their small but perfectly formed rooms. The rooms pack an awful lot into a small space: a double bed, shower-room, desk, wardrobe and Apple TV. They are also reasonably priced.
The hotel is also perfectly located in the uber-trendy Noho (North of Hollywood Road) district. Just above the hotel is the historic Man Mo temple and a warren of alleys offering antiques (don’t forget to haggle).
More importantly, design shops, trendy coffee shops and artsy-bars are just a stone’s throw from Ovolo Noho. We recommend Oldish for a breakfast served in enamel trays and Ping Pong for a totally hip gin experience—there’s well over 50 types of gin and offer and almost an equal number of tonics.
Yes, this is the perfect hotel for all you hipsters out there.
