“Ridiculous service!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We booked a table at this lobby lounge as a surprise celebration for a friend's engagement last Friday. We ordered a lot of drinks and a bottle of champagne (for the newly engaged couple to open when they arrive). Several issues:

1. The champagne itself arrived one hour late, so we missed the arrival surprise
2. The bill contains a series of drinks that we did not order (hope this is an honest mistake)
3. A waiter repeatly placed some random drinks that we did not order and failed to take them off the bill when we told them the order was wrong
4. When we raised the issue with additional items on the bill, a waitress (forgot her name) just asked us to identified the wrong drinks without a single apology!!!

I hope the management will read this and can properly reflect the poor service level that is not even accetpable in a 2-star hotel.

“Stunning view from a very special location”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We just came here for drinks one night. The view is as amazing as it can get. Worth while paying 90 HKD a beer and 150 HKD for a glass of winewhich after all is only slightly more than what you pay in a regular pub in the CBD. When we visited there was some very tasteful live music (jazz/pop style), highly professional staff and a wonderful atmosphere. Very much recommended for those special nights out.

“Afternoon tea on top of the world !”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

If you're looking for a cup of tea with a view , look no further than the Ritz Carlton Lounge & Bar. Situated on the 102nd floor , you get a birds eye view over Kowloon and HK Island. Service was superb (exactly what you'd come to expect from a Ritz Carlton) , and the decor sumptuous. The atmosphere was light and airy , with the piano player adding a touch of elegance to the proceedings. The china serve ware is stunning , as is the selection of delicate delights on the 3 tier afternoon tea stand. Overall a great afternoon , and good value for what you get. I much preferred this experience than the "tourist conveyor belt" you get at the famous Peninsula Hotel.
Next time i think i'll stay for dinner too !

“Incredible views at an incredible price”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I am not bashful about paying for the best hotels, and this one certainly puts that to the test. I was astonished at the high pressure "used car dealer" experience when checking in. It was as though the clerk got a percentage of the up sell. I discussed the experience with the duty manager, who was very understanding and who apologized for the bad impression. Once in the room, I was thrilled. The view is mesmerizing. The comfort of the bed was outstanding. All in all, I am glad I stayed here for the experience, but I prefer the service and total experience of the MO.

“Stunning views!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Recommend booking in advance if you want to guarantee a window seat and on a clear day, the views are to die for!

We stopped by here on a gorgeous sunny day to have tea and coffee and what a great experience! Situated on the 102nd floor accessed from the 103rd is the stunning Lounge & Bar. When we arrived staff were preparing tables ready for afternoon tea but managed to accommodate us despite not having a reservation albeit not a table with a view as they had been booked well in advance. It is easy to see why this lounge bar is popular and despite not exactly being dressed for such a 'swanky' place, we were not made to feel at all out of place.

Worth a visit but book ahead!
