My family recently enjoyed a week long stay at the T Hotel in Hong Kong. Expectations were high based on the glowing reviews that we had read on Trip Advisor and I'm pleased to say that it lived up to the hype. We were travelling with 2 small children in tow and arrived at the hotel via limousine transfer (organised by the hotel) late in the evening. The check-in process went very smoothly and the staff were kind enough to complete all the necessary paperwork for us in our room so that we could put the children to bed immediately. We were absolutely gobsmacked by the view when we opened the curtains in the morning. We stayed in one of the suites at the hotel and it was beautifully appointed. There was plenty of space in the bedroom to accommodate the cot and foldable bed for the children plus it was lovely to have a kitchenette and living room as well. We made good use of the Nespresso machine in our room too. Breakfast in the dining room was a real highlight for us. The food was delicious and there was a lot of variety to choose from. The staff were incredibly friendly and were very sweet with the children, even when they were making a terrible mess. We made good use of the free shuttle service to Central but on the days when this wasn't available, it was also very easy to either take one of the many buses that runs past the hotel or to take a taxi which was very cheap.
Much has been said in other reviews of the language barrier that exists with many of the students at the hotel. This was particularly apparent with understanding requests made over the phone but I was always passed onto one of the instructors fairly quickly so it wasn't a problem - just don't expect to sort anything out over the phone in a hurry. Given the amazingly low price associated with staying at this hotel, this certainly shouldn't put anyone off. The students were all very friendly and eager to help. Their instructors were very good at keeping an eye on their charges and we have nothing but praise for the wonderful T Hotel. Hope to stay there again in the future. Many thanks.
