J Plus Hotel by YOO

Reviewed August 11, 2013

We spent one night at J Plus Boutique Hotel. The location of this hotel is very convenient - within walking distance to many stores and restaurants in Causeway Bay, and public transportation. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We were given an upgrade and stayed in a very spacious one-bed room suite with kitchenette; the suite can easily accommodate four persons. Water, tea, coffee, soft drinks and juice are available all day near the lobby. I think the shower must have the best water pressure in HK . One draw back is that it's almost impossible for passengers with luggage to alight from a taxi in front of the hotel. Also, taxi drivers were reluctant to stop and pick up passengers with luggage. Staff were most helpful when we left, they flagged down a cab at nearby streetl and picked us up with our luggage at the side door.

J Plus Boutique Hotel is in an excellent location within walking distance of Causeway Bay MTR stop, Times Square for great shopping and many good restaurants. The staff is very helpful and friendly. But the best part of staying at the J Plus Boutique hotel is the unique, chic and fun atmosphere: our suite was spacious and decorated with fun furniture (tables with quirky gnomes for example) and it was clean and comfortable (included a frig, microwave and plates/glasses). Highly recommend this hotel for both business and vacation travelers.

Room Tip: Suites are a great deal!

J plus is what boutique hotels are supposed to be: chic, fun and trendy! On top of that the service is great and the rooms are clean. Get the 1 bedroom instead of the studio option. A great night's sleep and walking distance to shopping and dining, what more could you ask for?

This is a real find for Hong Kong and such great value too!
The rooms are fantastic and spacious, I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite and was quite overwhelmed with how big it was -- 780 square feet! I loved the little kitchen, stocked with everything you may need to cook a meal, my comfortable sofa in the living room, and the little divan hidden behind gauzy curtains ... perfect for curling up with a good book.
Philip Stark designed furniture and interiors can be meaningless if service is below standard
but the people at J Plus Hotel were welcoming, always smiling and very attentive and efficient.
The lobby on the ground floor is just as chic and fun as the rooms -- with eclectic and eye catching decor. The lobby is where they lay out a free continental breakfast buffet of fresh fruits and warm bread and you can get freshly brewed free flowing coffee throughout the day.
The room service menu has lots of choices from carefully chosen restaurants and coffee shops within the area that will deliver to the hotel.
The hotel is centrally located in Causeway Bay, step outside the door and you're 3 minutes away from everything -- a subway station, a local wet market, small boutiques with trendy apparel and eateries serving great chinese food!
Japanese department store Sogo is just 3 minutes away too and all the other big department stores are also within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: The view is not much to look at and the noise from the traffic in the streets can penetrate the wind...

Great value, Phillipe Stark interior design, now looking a bit worn but still trendy. Location in Causeway Bay with loads of local food and eateries around the hotel just a quick walk away. Italian restaurant in house is also great but must be adventurous and savor the local fare. Lastly don't forget cocktail/happy hour where drinks are on the house.

We've stayed at this hotel several times in the last 8 years (including when it was originally called the Jia Boutique). It was one of the first boutique apart hotels opened in HK but has not dated at all. In fact, it continues to excel. We recently tried another newer boutique hotel elsewhere in HK just to stay in a different area but the J Plus compares favourably if not better. Definitely worth considering the 1 bedroom as it has have a significant size advantage over the studio option. Although the rooms are furnished exactly the same as when it first open, they don't feel dated or worn, which is a credit to hotel management. As well, the hotel is always clean and the staff friendly but not intrusive. And my partner loves the complimentary afternoon wine, nibblies and breakfasts. But possibly its best feature since day one is its location...you are located in the middle of the densest and most vibrant part of Hong Kong - Causeway Bay.

Room Tip: Go the 1 bedroom if you can afford it.
