Hong Kong's South Coast is getting slightly cooler with the intro of Ovolo Southside, Hong Kong's first warehouse conversion hotel. Cue the hipsters!
The newly renovated 162-room industrial building will have a gallery space, rooftop bar and complimentary services. Originally designed in 1976 as a multi-use industrial building, the hotel has been transformed by architecture firm K plus K Associates. Inside guests will find utilitarian steel furniture with a minimalist aesthetic, poured concrete floors and exposed brick. The ceilings have exposed steel water pipes and foil-clad air conditioning ducts, while windows look over Hong Kong's skyline.
Guests are offered a wide range of complimentary services, such as breakfast, happy hour drinks, daily replenished minibars and a 24-hour gym. WiFi is also included.
There are six different room categories, from a Mini Twin to a Corner Deluxe. The hotel's main restaurant, Cirqle, serves up Mediterranean style East-Asian food. An open kitchen and adjoining outdoor terrace lets guests have the option to dine al fresco.
