“Serious hotel..”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I think if you want to do HK right this is your place. It fits such a trendy and fast paced city. Reception is on the 35th floor. Every agent is on a Macbook and just outside there is a pool and an awesome panoramic view of the city. The gym even has a wing chun dummy. I had a room with a kingsized bed and large flat screen television. The minibar is complimentary and refilled daily with beer, water and soft drinks. Each room has an iPad with wifi for your internet use and ordering of food and hotel services. The bathroom has everything you need from the basic vanity kit and toothbrush to shaving kit and loofa. The shower has both normal and rain heads. I may be easily wowed but you can move the mirror to watch television from the bathroom through a large window. If you need privacy that same window goes from transparent to opaque with the hit of a switch. Pretty cool. Robes and slippers are also provided.

If you want to save money you can take the A22 bus from the Airport to Ngao Tau Kok which is also the train station you'll use. I believe they have a shuttle that will pick you up from the Kowloon station after you take the Airport express train. They dropped me off after my stay so I imagine they'll pick you up also. I recommend the Hung To Cafe around the corner. They fed me well when I wandered back at around 2am. For breakfast take a right out of the hotel and make two more rights. You will find a bakery with good dim sum.

You didn't ask but if you need a quick souvenir idea and want something of quality check out Carpenter Tan's. They make wooden grooming products for men and women. Cheers!!

Stayed here for two nights for a city trip to HK! The hotel is very new and sophisticated. The hotel and the room have all a beatiful design. The staff was very friendly. The location could be better but you are within 5 min. at the metrostation. So I would say....perfect hotel to stay for business or pleasure.

I loved élan. The rooms are spacious, pretty and techy (we had an iPad to control the different lights, etc). The breakfast was very tasty. The hotel is a 25 mins subway ride to the city center. Also the subway station is less than 5 mins walk from the subway station which is very convenient.

Stayed for 3 nights. Not located in the 'middle of the action' in HK, but MTR is just 5 minutes walking. 15 minutes later you're on Nathan's Road. Complimentary iPad to use in your room, very nice. Can also be used to order your breakfast in your room, see your balance, etc. Breakfast was good. Clean comfy room. Only downside was the fact that the pool is closed until further notice. Apparently they can't get a permit for it. They really should have mentioned it somewhere on their site or booking.com, as we booked it partly because of the rooftop pool.

The Lhotel élan was very comfortable even though I stayed just for a night. The staff were very courteous. The food was with limited choice, tasty though. The Ngau Tau Kok station is just round the corner and accessibility through the MTR is fantastic. The hotel is brand new and fitted with good interiors, gadgets including an IPad for your exclusive use. Whether introductory or otherwise, the offers, service and experience was worth it. Go for it, if you have business or leisure to deal with, while in that part of HK !!

I stayed here after returning from an exhausting week long trip to China, and it was just perfect. The staff were all so courteous and friendly, the room was really comfortable and impeccably clean, and the breakfast was great with some nice healthy options too.. and they had the best expresso coffee too! Will definitely return and reccomend.
