Let me start by saying - what a view!! Its the first thing that struck me when I entered the room and its something I couldn't get enough of.
Location and Getting There:
This place can be a bit tricky to find and I missed it on the first go as it doesn't have a big sign that's easily visible. Having said that, once you know where it is, you wont miss it again. Its location may be a bit away from the interesting areas in HK, but not too much, as HK itself is not too big a place. Its located in Sai Ying Pin and bang opposite the Sun Yat Sen Sports Arena.
If you plan to use the MTR , Sheung Wan is the closest station and its little over a mile or just under 2KM from there. You could take the bus, hop into a cab or even walk till there.
By Taxi, its very close to Sheung Wan (minimum fare) or even Central (like I said, HK is not too big) and it will be a very good idea to have the taxi address card (available on their website) on you. We did have a bit of a trouble at times trying to explain the location of this place. Also you may find it a bit hard to get a taxi right outside the front door. In these cases, I would suggest trying from the parallel road behind the hotel (Des Voeux Rd West). I would recommend the same in case you need to take a bus.
I have to say, after talking to a lot of people about the hotels in HK, I expected a small room with a small bed - that was not at all the case with this place. The rooms are big! The bed is big (and soft)! The bathrooms are big! Not massive, but way more than enough to satisfy you.
You had everything from a toaster to a music system with an iPod dock.
Now the best part - I stayed on the 26th floor and the view of the harbour is to die for (tip - get a room on a high floor). You can see the sports arena and Kowloon with the tall Ritz Carlton building.
The staff was very nice and friendly. I felt very welcomed and they managed to check me in earlier than what was scheduled. I didn't have any trouble with the communication as well. Room service was quick and efficient.
Overall, I loved my stay here and will definitely be staying here again the next time I go to HK.
