Hong Kong's South Coast's Hip New Hotel

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.
