I stayed for 2 nights in Nov. When i took a taxi, it was difficult to explain the address because no one knows this newly opened hotel. but once i arrived, everything went smoothly from check in to out. i am a guy kind of "DIY", so the hotel was perfect and staffs were kind enough for me, i am not sure how travelers who expect a typically 5 star service feel.
mervelous for clubbers and alcoholics. huge numbers of bars, night clubs are in a walking distance. even in you can go to central station in 10minutes. but on the way back to the hotel, you have to crimb it up, it is a little bit tough with your luggages. however it takes 5 minutes to go by taxi. if you would like to connect airport express, just only 8-10 minutes ride and costs HKD25 around. this hotel is a brand new small boutique hotel, not so famous for taxi drivers. so don't forget to print map out before your first stay. other landmark around here is the centrium(building) or dragon-i(cafe/night club).
elevater hall is like your pribate entrance because there are only 2 rooms per floor. rooms are 47 sq. meter each said by the official. i didn't felt so, but a spacie room. once you step in,,, there are many wow inside. well furnished modern interior let you relaaax, complimentary alcohol and soft drinks are always full, plus, even in complimentary snacks and nespresso are available! chair and writing desk are placed on a corner of the room, its arrengement made me concentrate on working. only one fault is that small closet with no door. free wifi available, bed is a queen size bed (but a bit soft for me). I stayed on 17th floor, though i did not care about noise on the outside at the night time, i don't know about lower floors.
amenities are by marin+goets, i love it very much! cool bathin, well water pressured shower. there is no bathtub? okay,,,
there is no reception counter on ground floor. it is on 1st floor. doorman will lead you to reception and your room, so you don't need to get nervous. check in/out is quite smooth, and all staffs are always friendly with smile.

I am delighted to read that once you were able to find our hotel on 2 Arbuthnot Road you were able to enjoy the room and surrounding areas to their fullest extent. A lot of time went into the design and features of our new hotel rooms and we are always grateful when customers make note of the little details (like our exclusive M+G amenities) that go into making a guest experience truly remarkable.
I am furthermore very appreciative of your kind words towards our staff, the bedrock of our service. Thank you again for your review, we look forward to hosting you again in Hong Kong soon.
