Disappointing for a building which represents one of the note issuing bank. The stairs in front of the building are unwelcoming for handicapped access. Alternate access is via escalator (equally challenging) and branch via another flight of stairs. In summary, this building is to be looked at at night but not to be visited

Another commanding edifice to the already crowded HK skyline…this building is superb at night and stands out as another beacon of the island's commercial success.

As mentioned in other reviews that this building hides behind HSBC building and does look very attractive from near. But completes the harmony of Hong Kong skyline when looked from the far. It catches your eyes mostly in the night when it appears tallest building illuminated with lights. An integral part of Hong Kong Symphony of light show and Hong... More

The Standard Chartered Bank Building is overshadowed by the HSBC building right next to it. However, it joins the ranks of the fine skyscrapers that make up the fantastic Hong Kong island skyline. This particular skyscraper is much less impressive to look at compared to the more famous HSBC building, Bank of China building and the IFC tower. Its not... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
