“I'm definitely staying here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

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.


Rooms:
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.

Service:
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.

Room Tip: Carry a taxi card Get a room on a high floor for the view May be easier to get a taxi from the par...

Although it was a very quite Sunday afternoon when we arrived, we were not allowed to check in until 3:00pm. We were on the 8th floor and had to walk to the window to see the bay. However, we had a perfect view of the Sports Arena, not what I was hoping for. They require that you call downstairs before ckecking out so they can see if anything is missing from the apartment. Not what you would expect at a nice place. There are no Western restaurants close by, so we ordered from the extensive delivery menu. Beware, the prices have gone up and the food will arrive cold. Also there is no TV in the bedroom, only the sitting area. I will be staying at another location next week.

I recently came back from five nights at Chi 138 on Hong Kong Island. The rooms were great, very large (for HK standards), quiet and private. The room itself was modern and spacious and very clean.

In the whole time I was there, I probably only saw a few guests as the way the rooms are set out, is that you only have access to your floor, and there are only two rooms per floor!

It was also good how the layout of the room meant that the bed faced the amazing floor to wall to take advantage of the great views over the harbour.

While the area itself was not close to the MTR, we found we either caught the bus (plenty to choose from), or simply take the tram or bus up to the MTR which is only a few minutes away anyway. While this hotel does not have room service, they still offer a hotel delivery service which lists a large range of restrauants across a large selection of dining ranges, so this really isn't a problem.

Overall, we had a really nice time and this place is excellent value for money. Forsaking being close to the hustle and bustle (yet small rooms) in Hong Kong is well worth it and, as suggested in the above paragraph, the public transport is great to and from this hotel so no issues there.

Finally, there are plenty of supermarkets close by to

I would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Take the bus down to Repulse Bay, a lovely trip

Perfect view. Very helpful personal. Housekeeping ok. 15 min to nearest mtr. Worth the money. Fantastic. Great value. Taxi available outside the appartment. Great rooftop where you can have a panorama view of big parts of Hong Kong.

Was staying at the place for quite some time. It is definitely how i would imagine my dream apartment to be like. Wake up to an awesome full window port side view of hong kong with ferries running by . It also comes with an awesome deck on the top floor, perfect for some red wine and barbeque. Has cleaners to clean up after your cookout ;p, washing machines, gym and a computer to print stuff. Staff were super helpful and super polite. Have good english speaking staff and excellent selection of tv channels. Close to the ferry, if you wanna jump to Macau. Missed the chance to go checkout "the house of dancing water show" something i regret very much. Right behind you can jump on a tram (ting ting) to get around the island or to a train to get to mainland HK. Shops all around but away from the most busy area thus "peaceful". It is because i stayed here that my Hong Kong getaway was unforgettable. Thanks!!
Hope you will be able to maintain this level of service, it is not perfect but id say its almost there. :D - Sky -
