Kotewall Road (Chinese: 旭龢道) is a street in Mid-Levels, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong, located between Po Shan Road and Robinson Road. It is a 400-metre-long two-way road located on hill slopes south of Sai Ying Pun.

Name[edit]

The road was named after Sir Robert Hormus Kotewall, a prominent Chinese-Parsee businessman and legislator during the colonial era, who built the road in the 1910s.

History[edit]

Kotewall Road was once known for its concentration of vehicle-repairing garages, mainly servicing the wealthy residents of Mid-Levels. Stone house, a Grade III historic building built in 1923 at 15 Kotewall Road is the only garage of this kind remaining, now turned into a private residence.[1]
