“Great Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 7 month old. They even provided a crib which was a nice surprise and I recommend if you're traveling with a toddler or infant to get the larger room so that there's room for the crib. This is a very New York style hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are modern, stylish and comfortable. I live in San Francisco and this location is like like staying in the Union Square shopping area. A lot of cab drivers don't know where this hotel is or Pennington Street so just tell them to take you to Lee Gardens 2.

i traveled to HK with my family and stayed 4 nights in this hotel. we were nicely arranged in a connecting room though we did not request for it. the staff are so kind and considerable.

the hotel and room deco is trendy and stylish. the bed is superb comfortable with soft and firm pillows.

staff were helpful and recommended good places for to eat and shop around the hotel. the nearby restaurants are closed late in night and downstairs is a 7-11. very convenient to grab some food at night:)

Room Tip: whatever u want or need, simply ask the hotel staff. they have the right answers for u:)

This is very new hotel so the room is very new and modern. The location is very convenient to access to the MTR causeway bay. The service is great and the room is not too small comparing to the HK hotel 4 star standard. However, the entrance may not be easy to notice since it is very small entrance and the hotel lobby is located in the fourth floor. I definitely will stay here again if I have to visit HK.

This is my second visit to Hong Kong, this time I lived in a new hotel called pennington. It is locate in Causeway Bay near by the subway system, just 5 minutes you can reach the hotel, concierge is very polite and helpful, modern design both inside and outside , the room tv and audio equipment (surround sound) was execllent.

In addition to the shops along the streets, there're also many conveniently located shopping centers and malls easily accessible via the nice subway system,
If you plan on shopping in Hong Kong, i highly recommend Times Square, SOGO, causeway place is a key shopping mall close to penningtion.

The next visit to Hong Kong again, I will definitely stay in hotel Pennington

Room Tip: well designed

I stayed here on business for 6 nights in October 2013 after finding both of the hotels my organisation usually use in Causeway Bay to be fully booked. I got a deal through booking.com which brought the price for a standard double room down to around HKD 1,100 per night. For a decent hotel in such a central Causeway Bay location this represented good value for money.

Unless you are willing to pay sky-high prices to stay somewhere 5*, hotel rooms anywhere centra in Hong Kong are always going to be small. I was impressed by the thoughtful, contemporary design of my room which made the most of the limited space available and was snug without feeling claustrophobic. Little touches like the USB charger track on the desk, the rainfall, slate-tiled shower and the Thann spa amenities gave the Pennington a premium feel. I also appreciated the free, fast in-room wifi given that the hotel I regularly stay in on business in HK (the nearby Excelsior) still charges for in-room wifi. Staff were consistently helpful, polite and enthusiastic.

There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are plenty of places nearby to grab breakfast, including Pret a Manger just around the corner in Lee Gardens Two, so I didn't feel this was a big inconvenience. The location is fantastic, less than a minute's walk to Causeway Bay MTR and just a couple of minutes stroll to major Causeway Bay malls such as Hysan Place. Taxi drivers may not all know Pennington Street but if you ask for Lee Gardens they will drop you just around the corner.

The only thing that let the Pennington down was the bed which was very uncomfortable. I am used to hard beds after years of travelling in China, but the mattress really was rock hard and sleeping on it left me with back ache. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend the Pennington as an affordable base for business on HK Island.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor to avoid traffic noise

The location is nearby the Causeway Bay MTR station. Easy to find the hotel.

Feel natural when I step in the hotel.
Smell natural when I bath with the Thann. XD

The pillow is too soft.
They provided a hard pillow when I request one more.
And they also delivery it within 4 mins.
Nice service^^
