I was at lost while trying to choose a hotel to stay while in HK. A friend of mine came across Hotel ICON on TripAdvisor and recommended that I have a look.
They have a great website which was easy to navigate. The price seemed pretty steep but in retrospect, it was well worth it.
The recent review by kid_at_heart17 really hit the nail on the head - Hotel ICON really looks into the little things that makes for a memorable stay. As my bus touched down at the doors of Hotel ICON, staff were already at hand to manage my luggage. Reception was efficient and the unexpected upgrade was a real bonus.
The room was clean, the design modern, and the view of HK city and harbour simply stunning. The wifi was fast and stable. The complimentary bar with Nespresso machine and the quality toiletries were perhaps the highlights among the well thought out amenities. The gym was nice but you really can't use the treadmill without having a pair of sunnies on as the late-morning glare comes right through.
Their free shuttle dropped off at a strategic location and was timely. The walk to the nearest MTR was only about 10 minutes away, and you're never far from anywhere in HK with the MTR. The buffet spread for breakfast at The Market was exquisite.
All in, two thumbs and an all round recommendation for anyone going to HK.
