- COWORKING SPACE
These serviced offices’ have long operated without much attention from the general public. However, as the global pandemic continues and the uncertainty of the economic future of Hong Kong is still a significant factor when businesses make decisions, the flexibility and competitive prices of these shared office spaces have attracted even multinational corporations and banks to sign up.
With an abundance of new operators opening up in the city, as well as already established serviced offices opening new branches, it could be a daunting task to even attempt to compare them all. And so this list has been created to compile the best “Serviced Offices” in Hong Kong, to educate anyone and everyone about the coworking industry that so many have heard about but very few understand.
The Executive Centre began in Hong Kong in 1994 and thrived as a serviced office operator. It has accommodated both startups and multinational corporations and is widely acclaimed for its premium fitted private offices. The prestigious entrances and professional baristas in most of their locations are one of the many features they offer to sway prospective clients, and it usually works!
With 10 business centres on Hong Kong island and their newest one in AIA Central on the way, it is clear the luxury office operator is expanding at a competitive pace. With businesses looking for flexible office spaces due to the pandemic outbreak, demand for serviced offices have increased significantly.
It isn’t only SME’s (Small medium enterprises) and startups looking for serviced offices anymore, large established MNC (Multinational corporations) and even banks have sought them out. With an increasing practice of a “hybrid work style”, whereby employees come to the office 2-3 days a week and the remaining days are from home, the demand for premium private offices by serviced operators is not going to slow down. This has allowed The Executive Centre to flourish and even raise the standard of quality businesses have come to expect when looking for an office.
These qualities have helped The Executive Centre stand out in Hong Kong’s competitive serviced office market, especially in Hong Kong island and Central in particular. Only choosing the best graded and best managed buildings in some of the most prestigious addresses, offering renowned branded office furniture such as Haworth and Herman Miller and having an in-house barista at your beck and call in most of their locations are just a few excellent key features that The Executive Centre has implemented as standard practice throughout their expansion.
Pricing is an important metric in all businesses and a private office in one of The Executive Centre business centres can start at $11,000 per person per month. If you would like to learn more about The Executive Centre have a look at our selection below:

Being in business for over 30 years, one may consider Regus a veteran in the serviced office industry. Founded in 1989 in Brussels, Belgium, Regus is the world’s largest serviced and is globally recognised in over 3,200 locations across 1000 cities in around 120 countries. Regus is a part of IWG (International Workplace Group), a group of service office brands that operate in different styles and themes to provide their clients more aesthetic options and workplace environments.
One key feature that few, if any, of its competitors can match is the inclusion of its membership relocation option provided to all of its clients. Having the option to move to any of Regus’ 3,200+ business centres globally in the middle of your contract without incurring a penalty, is as flexible as a company can get in terms of location.
The amenities and services that come with a private office membership in Regus are a staple in the industry, though the quality of these differs from each centre as it has rolled out a franchise business model, similar to that of McDonald’s. These franchises often come with strict requirements and are known for only allowing business centres that have a large spacious common area with usually great lighting and a view.
The services and amenities one can expect from a private office membership are, but not limited to, building management, security, reception services (During business hours), high speed enterprise internet and meeting room facilities with complimentary 2 hours free daily(On a first-come-first-served basis).
The furniture in your office may be chosen, as Regus acknowledges that different industries may want to design their offices in unique styles. Their DYO (Design Your Office) Program allows for businesses who are more sensitive to branding and image, requiring a theme and style or outright just wanting more control on the aesthetics of their workplace, to really personalise their surroundings.
Regus has 9 locations in Hong Kong and with access to its sister companies through the IWG network, its members enjoy 8 other locations with Spaces and Signature. Expansion has been one of Regus’ business directions ever since its conception. The IWG network already boasts 2.5 million members globally and we can expect more locations and areas to open up a Regus branch or franchise to cater to an even wider audience.
Membership packages for Regus varies depending on location and starts at around $7,000 per person per month. Be one of its many satisfied customers today and ask us about Regus’ membership packages below.

Hailing from Australia, Servcorp Limited was founded in 1978 by entrepreneur Alfred Moufarrige and continues to “serv” to this day in 22 countries, 44 cities and 150+ locations. Servcorp chooses only the finest for its clients which means occupying only A grade premium spaces and landmark locations for their business centres. We can see examples of this in which buildings they have chosen globally; Level 85, One World Trade Center in New York; Level 20, Marunouchi Trust Tower in Tokyo; Levels 18 & 19, Hilton Plaza West Office Tower in Osaka; Level 30, The Leadenhall Building in London; Level 19, Two International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.
As an early pioneer in the serviced office industry and having set many standards of practice that many have copied to this day, Servcorp has evolved into a self conscious and aware operator, ensuring their clients are always looked after with the only the best tools and services whilst also slowly adopting a green and environmentally friendly approach to conducting daily operations so as to decrease their carbon footprint emissions.
The interior design of Servcorp can be considered classic and traditional. It only has the finest and timeless furniture for its members. This conservative approach to design gives their private offices the feeling of being in a traditional office.
One standout feature by Servcorp are their highly trained, dedicated and professional personnel. Having some of the best multilingual, local and skilled teams in the industry is a welcome benefit that its members enjoy. Its backend and administrative support is one of, if not the best as staff are not only rigorously vetted but regularly trained to keep the high standards that Sercorps customers have come to expect. Implementing a sophisticated routed call system, where a multilingual receptionist handles your business calls is a unique feature not many of its competitors provide.
Their over 100 strong IT teams are noted for their experience and dedication to providing only solutions. Giving clients a 24/7 hotline for in-house IT support and having invested over US$100 million in building a global interconnected data network is a highly appreciated feature in the industry, as our future workplace becomes more and more digital.
They have built a network and community of clients with 50,000+ members online globally. This network gives an ease of communication and breaks the ice in terms of introduction to its members. This tight-knit community has given many opportunities for businesses to thrive and prosper.
Overall we can say Servcorp can be looked at as an old-school, classic and traditional serviced office provider. But as the saying goes “why change something that works”, and Servcorp definitely “works”. It has well over 40 years of experience and isn’t looking to stop anytime soon.
Private office memberships with Servcorp can start at $12,000 per person per month. Contact us today to learn more about what they have to offer!

Spaces is a part of the IWG(International Workplace Group). Essentially operating with the same high standards as its sister company Regus, Spaces has a few key differences.
Regus appeals to a more traditional corporate crowd with already established identities. And whilst this is great, it needed to appeal to another demographic that they could not really attract initially. And so Spaces was established.
One main difference is the targeted customers, who are more entrepreneurial and looking to network and connect more frequently. This means a different approach to running its business centres, running more events with larger more innovative co-working spaces just to name a few. Perfect for burgeoning, young and energetic businesses that have many ideas but need assistance in the execution of these ideas.
Being a member of the IWG network gives Spaces members the fluidity and flexibility of working from over 3,200 locations globally. It also comes with the previously mentioned DYO (Design Your Office) Program giving customisation options to startups that most likely would not have the budget to do so themselves.
Looking at the design and aesthetics of Spaces typical centre, we can see it tries to encourage innovation, ideas and creativity. It acknowledges that these attributes are not just a novelty and are actually an opportunity. Sure the fundamental daily operations and management are similar, if not the exact same as Regus’, but the image and “vibe” is totally different. IWG knew it had to differentiate the two markets (established businesses and startups or freelancers) and had to keep a separate entity for each one and they did so, masterfully.
Spaces private office memberships start at $6,000 per person per month. Learn more about the best option for innovators and creatives today!

Compass first opened its doors in December 2009, mainly from its founder’s frustrations with other serviced office operators who were not transparent with pricing and provided lacking and inconsistent services. And so with their displeasure of how other competitors ran their serviced offices used as fuel, Compass has grown to be one of the main competitors in the industry.
With over 29 centres in 9 countries across Asia and Oceania, Compass is well on its way to increasing its influence internationally. Being recognised as an efficient and honest service provider, Compass has no hidden fees and a respectable and flexible private office contract.
Its IT support is second to none, having large server racks and dedicated server rooms and even an option to install private IP lines for privacy-sensitive industries, it is a gamechanger for tech savvy businesses.
Though Compass’ office furniture is just standard, it more than makes up for it with private offices that have amazing views and a relaxing atmosphere, with greeneries and plants dispersed throughout. They decorate the office to be just that, an office not a prison-like room with just white walls and barren neutral surroundings. They want their offices to have a personality because they know their clients have a personality and are not just drones.
A great attribute about Compass is their ability to cater to any unique needs a business may have. Paintings on the walls? Done. Want a meeting room booked but in another location? Easy. Want an extra chair or cabinet in your manager suite? Completed. Any reasonable requests are doable. “But other service operators do the same”, sure but the costs of these requests will be hidden until you find them in your invoice the next month. Compass will tell you straight away how much, if any, the cost will be and keep things transparent.
The price for a private office membership with Compass offices varies from each location, though it averages out to be about $6,000 per head per month. This price point is extremely competitive and has resulted in clients often renewing and staying for longer than their initial 1 year agreement. Find out more about Compass offices today!

Recently opened and landlord owned, The Center Space is located in the prime business district of Central on 99 Queen’s Road Central at The Center. Taking up the whole 76th floor, this luxury serviced office operator offers stunning views of Victoria Harbour, perfect for executives that want to impress.
The previous tenant, Victory Offices, an Australian co-working space operator, left in December of 2020 leaving the city just over a year after its launch. With 25,000 square feet of commercial space not generating them any revenue, the landlord decided to take over and open its own serviced office. Landlord owned and run, the space is backed by Shimao International, a renowned Hong Kong landlord and developer.
It is still too early to tell what it would be like as a member of this high end serviced office, however glancing at the available amenities and services it offers, things look promising. Full access to 8,000 square feet of common area, high quality executive furniture being provided(with an option to upgrade to a height adjustable table at extra charge), some of the best telecommunications and internet lines money can buy as well as an in-house barista are highly appealing.
While designing their layout, they have kept to 120sqft per person in terms of spacing, triple of the industry standard. The extra space should be welcomed and praised, as Hong Kong is widely notorious for its cramp and overcrowded conditions. Not to mention the bright lighting, as it is on the 76th floor, one can feel free to roam without feeling claustrophobic in this premium serviced office space.
A private office in The Center Space starts at around $12,000 per person per month. Want to learn more about The Center Space’s amazing and spacious private offices? Have a look at:

Another landlord-owned and run serviced office is opening up in Edinburgh Tower. Hongkong Land, a major property developer specifically in premium commercial and residential properties, dips its toes into the flexible office space market (perhaps signaling a shift in workspace and workplace culture?) with its grand opening of Centricity Flex. Occupying the whole 17th and 18th floor of Edinburgh Tower on 15 Queen’s Road Central, the renowned developer looks to disrupt the industry by proposing an array of luxury facilities and services, significantly raising the standards tenants expect from a serviced office operator.
Supplying their clients with Herman Miller standing desks, Haworth ergonomic chairs for each and every employee and an internal pantry in each private office space are definitely attractive features. Not to mention, their high-end inhouse canteen serving fresh and healthy meals daily is one of a kind. The stylish and colourful furniture in the common areas would likely be interpreted as luxurious, providing extreme comfort and appeal that will definitely impress any and all visitors, be they clients or potential hires coming in for an interview.
Another point to note is that the layout for each of the private offices, and indeed the whole business centre, in Centricity Flex are highly efficient and makes use of every square foot with no wasted space. This is to ensure their tenants operate in an office without having to ponder about squandering their opex.
Hongkong Land has spent time and resources on developing Centricity, a seamless and unique online application that presents a myriad of features to their tenants. Booking meeting rooms, premium and exclusive discounts for members and ordering food from the LANDMARKs many food and beverage outlets are just a few things tenants are able to do in the palm of their hand.
As with all newly opened serviced offices, it is still too early to tell or judge what being a member of this premium office provider would be like. However, a quick glance at the amazing membership packages proposed under a world renowned landlord, looks exceptionally promising.
A standard private office at Centricity Flex starts at about $15,000 per person per month. Get your free quotation from our team of leading industry experts today!

Perhaps in an indication of how popular serviced offices have become, a new premium serviced office operator, Bela Offices is opening in The Chelsea on 69 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan.
The lavish design of the entrance and reception area suggests a high-end, top-tier office space that could break the bank. However, Bela Offices is surprisingly cost-efficient and competitive when compared to other luxury serviced office providers. The attractive price tag, coupled with the fact that their personnel is highly professional and experienced will definitely keep their leasing team busy.
High-speed corporate communication lines, superior office management and services, and the chic style of the common areas, as well as the private offices, are considerable factors that may just be enough to sway the most demanding potential customers.
As it has not even opened yet, only time will tell how being a tenant with Bela Offices will be like. The up-and-coming serviced office provider looks eloquent and sincere and considering its great location (in the heart of Sheung Wan), is a respectable new contender in the industry.
The starting price for Bela Offices is around $6,000 per head per month. Get in touch with our team of experts and arrange a visit today!

We’ve all heard of WeWork and its notorious scandal in 2019, started by its then CEO Adam Neumann. The poor handling by WeWork’s higher ups have left a bad taste not only with WeWork, but with co-working spaces and serviced offices in general.
Despite all this, WeWork sold off a $200 million stake in its China division to Shanghai’s Trustbridge Partners, a venture capital firm. This has resulted in WeWork China being fully independent and autonomous. With its shaky past WeWork China led by Michael Jiang, a former executive at Meituan Dianping, is looking ahead to change the brand’s perceived reputation, at least in China.
Even through the tumultuous actions of its highest ranking executives, the business centres and the staff running them were actually highly professional and to this day, held in high regard. The private office membership packages were some of the best in the industry.
WeWorks business centres encouraged a “Work hard, play hard” ethos, with foosball tables, complimentary alcoholic beverages and tenants wearing smart casual outfits commonly being seen in its locations. Perhaps a more conservative business would outright reject this type of workspace, appealing more towards a younger demographic mainly millennials and entrepreneurs.
Fully dedicated IT teams ready to serve at moments notice, WeWork’s global membership network that connects businesses to each other, a friendly casual workplace environment that encourages creativity and innovation, a highly professional front and backend support team and an all around inviting and inclusive office operator are just some of the compliments the tenant’s of WeWork have stated.
With its diminishing footprint in Hong Kong after having closed a few of its locations, WeWork looks to steadily revive and reestablish itself by focusing on what allowed it to expand successfully in the first place; excellent service and providing solutions. Perhaps the general public’s view of WeWork is still tarnished, but we should not judge an entire business’s image by the actions of a few. The ground staff and centre managers in its existing locations still deliver amazing and respectable standards of service to this day, often going above and beyond for their tenants.
A private office membership with WeWork is exceptionally competitive starting at $6,000 per person per month. Find out more about WeWork from our team today!

theDesk launched in June 2016, opening its doors in Sai Wan and being led by CEO and co-founder Thomas Hui’s with his goal of encouraging innovation and igniting the passion needed to drive businesses forward.
The sleek atmosphere of an all-white neutral colour in most of its locations is perhaps an analogy for a blank canvas, inviting creativity and to really get the brain juices flowing. Not to mention it helps light up and brighten its space.
Open and spacious terraces are a signature of theDesk, allowing its members to grow a small garden and to have an outdoor space to relax or take a breath of fresh air. This coupled with its enormous event spaces in every business centre have made it a popular spot for many events, and indeed it does host many events for all types of industries. It has recently slowed down due to the pandemic and stricter regulations by the government, however it will always have the space available to do so in the future. It’s perfect for any burgeoning entrepreneur looking to expand their network and connections!
Corporate printers, private phone booths, complimentary beverages, daily cleaning, 24/7 security and access and an all-in-one invoice with generous membership package deals and discounts are quite enticing and are often the main factors many of theDesks tenants opt to renew their lease.
Membership at theDesk for a private office starts at around $5,000 per person per month. Find out more about theDesk today!

Founded in 2014 by Elaine Tsung, an investment banker turned entrepreneur, Garage Society has grown to multiple locations in Hong Kong and in several countries such as Thailand, Cambodia and the Philippines.
With its eye-catching yellow colours spread all over its locations, Garage Society is definitely unique and stylish. Perhaps the moniker is often misinterpreted, as Garage Society’s workspaces are far from a conventional garage. With its beautiful offices and comfortable executive furniture, the private offices in Garage Society are highly professional. It is without doubt that the serviced office provider caters to even the most conservative of business professionals.
Comfortable and bright, the common areas of each of the Garage Society’s offices stand out as aesthetically pleasing. The live greenery dotted around the business centres may be a reprieve from the arduous tasks during working hours. It is a great reminder to take a breather and to de-stress.
With printing credits, daily cleaning and beautiful but practical pantries and common areas all at greatly competitive prices, the Garage Society is a big player in the industry of co-working spaces and serviced offices in Hong Kong.
Prices for the Garage Society can start at around $6,000 per person per month. Find out more here!

Launched in 2020, V-Co is owned and run by the real estate company V Point. After taking over eight floors of space from an ex-tenant, the landlord took the initiative and decided to open its own co-working space.
With the landlord operating the space, greater flexibility and hospitality are a few of the attributes we can expect to see from this serviced office brand. From building management, to exclusive discounts from its other tenants in the building, the ability to control the daily operations adds a layer of micro-management. But this time, it is to micromanage things in order to better serve and provide the ultimate flexible option, at least in terms of office space.
Membership with V-Co includes 24/7 access, 24/7 air conditioning, 3 hours of meeting room usages per head per month, 180 black & white pages and 20 colour pages per member per month, complimentary snacks and refreshments and 20% discount on booking meeting rooms and event space. Quite a neat bundle!
Private office memberships with V-Co start at around $5,000 per person per month. Sign up with this landlord owned serviced operator through us today!

Founded in Hong Kong in 2012, The Hive now operates 20 business centres in 7 countries across Asia Pacific. The founder Constant Tedder, famous for his involvement in founding Jagex, has made it his mission to deliver a unique co-working experience, one where their beautiful offices could feel like a second home.
The serviced office operator has garnered multiple awards, one of the “Best Coworking Spaces in HK” by Time Out Magazine and winner of Coworker Members’ Choice Awards Asia. Truly a testament to their exceptional service to their members throughout the years.
Membership with the hive is difficult, for no other reason than that there is just no space! Current members are loyal and opt to renew their membership just because of the great value and service they have received. Finding a spot in their beautifully designed offices is often a daunting task, as one could wait months just to find an office that fits their team size.
A more popular alternative with The Hive is their co-working hotdesk memberships that offer massive common areas to roam freely and work at their own pace. It is perhaps one of the only viable options, as even dedicated desks are often full. A staple of each of The Hives locations are their green terraces, highlighting an encouragement towards a balanced work and life ethic.
The all inclusive all welcoming environment and warm and receptive feeling you get when entering any of The Hives locations is often enough to convince potential clients to sign up, as their team goes above and beyond to provide solutions to any of their clients needs.
Free coffee, regular events, private phone booths, mailbox lockers, printer access, registration to The Hives internal member portal and corporate wifi along with the great atmosphere are what comes included with their membership packages. We have not heard any complaints from The Hives tenants, well perhaps that they should open more locations to serve more people, which really says something!
The Hive starts at around $7,500 per person per month, definitely a competitive price tag considering everything you get with it!
