“The ultimate in modern business living, in a stylish and welcoming retreat for jet-set dealmakers, close to the Star Ferry”
The sleek modern décor of the rooms lets you instantly start to unwind on arrival. It is minimalist - perhaps verging on unimaginative - but meets its market perfectly. Everything is pristine, from the snowy white bedding to the sparkling bathroom. Flop onto the large bed or into the boxy armchairs, and enjoy some of the fresh fruit laid out for you.
There are 4 room options - Standard, Superior, Deluxe and Executive. All share the same style; the larger Deluxe and Executive rooms have kingsize beds and also come with kitchenettes - complete with microwaves, sinks, all the key utensils and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
Relatively spacious bathrooms have massage showers. Deluxe and Executive rooms have a yoga mat; Executive rooms also have a slipper tub.
Every room has a framed print of old Hong Kong, providing an opportunity to marvel over how much the skyline has changed in recent years. A small angular copper statuette in a wall recess adds another touch of personality. A delightful toy gift, left on your pillow by the turndown service, confirms the impression that this hotel is a world away from its larger and more institutional competitors.
There are male and female only floors; if these are of interest to you, please specify on enquiry.
Cubix, the small restaurant, is cool and relaxed. The décor is simple and modern, saved from being functional by the funky boxy light arrangement on the ceiling and walls.
Breakfast is a self-service buffet with fresh pastries and bagels, fruit platters, cereals, yoghurt, salads, smoked salmon, cold cuts, and hot items such as baked beans, ham, bacon, sausage, patties and eggs every which way - all are delicious. The juices are freshly squeezed and the coffee just-roasted. All in all, a very good start to the day!
Being in the heart of such a culinarily-blessed city, the restaurant tends to be neglected by guests in the evening, which is a shame as the food is top-notch. At night the interior design comes into its own, creating a cosy, intimate space with mood lighting.
The menu is simple and Western in orientation, with a selection of classics - spaghetti bolognaise, grilled New Zealand rib-eye steak or gourmet sandwiches. But the highlight is the selection of tapas dishes - the deep-fried camembert, lime bait and gambas al ajillo all come highly recommended. If you’re not tempted by the impressive wine list, the juices are really delicious - try the Bright Spark (cranberry, apple, lime and bitters) or the Adrian (ginger ale, apple and lime).
There's actually a lot for children in Hong Kong, and you can get to see it all on cheap punctual public transport. Restaurants are exciting and varied, there's an outdoor escalator and plethora of skywalks to discover.
