“6/5 ! Something a little bit different where service is the best!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

For this one, a score of 6/5 is needed!
Staying in a training establishment may sound a little bit strange, but this hotel on Pok Fu Lam Road between Central and Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island rates with The Lovat in Fort George Scotland, as one of the best that we have ever stayed in. The rooms are extremely well appointed and the service is top notch; the students take their job seriously, skillfully watched over by Johnson Kwok, Cyril Lam and their colleagues. The location could be a problem, but definitely isn't - Pok Fu Lam road has more buses travelling along it than most London main streets and the transport network is cheap and efficient (Buy an Octopus Card when you arrive at the airport - makes getting around Hong Kong on public transport a breeze!). A taxi ride from the airport is about $350, which compared with the airport express to Hong Kong Station ($160 for a 2 group ticket) and then a taxi $160, makes getting here easy as well. We had supper in on both nights of our stay - only because we had enjoyed it so much: a simple menu of beautifully cooked, beautifully presented and professionally served food - and the ocean view from the restaurant affords a vista across the bay. The hotel has been open for about 18 months and is clearly a winner. There is no better advert for the professionalism of the training provided to the hotel industry in Hong Kong. Would we stay here again? - Absolutely!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room - breathtaking views

Everything about this hotel is top class but because it's a training institute the prices are less than you might pay elsewhere. Even the mini bar prices were very reasonable.The young trainees are supervised and keen to do whatever they can to help. Breakfasts had a good choice. The hotel is a 15 minute bus ride from the city centre but buses are frequent and cheap and go from outside the hotel complex. We bought Octopus cards at the airport and got the A10 bus following the excellent directions provided by the hotel. Top tip: you can walk to The Peak from the hotel. Cross the road and turn left, walk up to Pokfulam Reservoir Road. Turn right here and it takes you through Pokfulam National Park, it's around 45 minutes to The Peak.

Reviews looked great and the location and hotel size was right. Very friendly staff and a competitive rate for this level of hotel. The room was large and quiet. Breakfast was simple and just right to save room to enjoy the local food scene.

Staying at this hotel now, and cannot fault the service, food and help with booking tours the staff have given us. There are only a small number of rooms available, and staying here feels as though you are the only guests they have to look after, such is the individual attention you are given. Can't rate or recommend staying here highly enough. It is a little far out of Hong Kong, but access is very easy and frequent, and the staff only too willing to help you get where you want to be. The rooms are very modern and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Five star rating for everything. Loved staying here, and recommend it to all - it's a gem!

As the name suggests, this is an establishment where most of the staff are training, under supervision, to work in the hotel trade. We stayed here for 4 nights in February and found the whole experience positive and enjoyable. The 'hotel' itself is located about 15 minutes drive from Hong Kong Island's Central district. There is a frequent bus service and taxis are cheap at around 60 HK dollars. The rooms are modern, spacious and well appointed, with great sea views. They have twice daily housekeeping with a nightly turndown service. There is an extensive high quality hot or cold buffet breakfast on offer. Additionally, omelettes, poached eggs and fried eggs are made to order. As the hotel was fairly quiet during our stay, the trainees generally outnumbered the guests at breakfast. This meant that we received more attention than we would normally like, as students tried to practice their newly gained skills. Also, there was sometimes confusion due to the meaning of our requests being lost in translation. However, as long as you are prepared to go with the flow, you'll enjoy the experience. There is also a limited evening menu of a good standard and at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend staying at the T hotel. It is wonderful value, at a fraction of the price of the big hotel chains. The young staff are friendly, enthusiastic and keen to learn.

Stayed here 5 nights for business purposes in one of the Ocean View rooms. Although the hotel is pretty standard as in dont expect anything exquisite it is very clean, offers great views and everything simply works / functions as it is supposed to. The staff is great. A young crowd of which some are obviously in a learning environment but being mentored by what I would say very professional supervisors. All in all, value for money and a great atmosphere!
