This is a smaller hotel on the south side of Hong Kong Island, it is not one of the big 'super hotels' of north side Hong Kong or Kowloon. I just stayed for a week at one of the ocean-view suites. It was a very good room with views of Aberdeen harbour, surrounding hills, Ap Lei Chau across the water and all the activity, seven days a week, of the Aberdeen fish market 20+ floors below. The room was light and bright with a good fit-out, comfortable bed, separate sitting area and well-appointed bathroom.
Downstairs on the ground floor; The buffet breakfast, on-tap Gaggia espresso coffee maker and the early evening happy hours were all greatly appreciated.
All the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.
As you are on the southside you need to either take the shuttle bus (infrequent, free), the local buses (frequent, cheap, busy at peak hours) or taxi (convenient and still pretty cheap) to get to the north side.
There are a range of local eateries from all manner of cheap and cheerful right up to the over-the-top Jumbo Floating Palace nearby.
There is heaps to do locally; Aberdeen promenade for a harbour-side stroll, take the local ferry 5 minutes over to Ap Lei Chau, hike up to the Hong Kong trail and Aberdeen Country Park, or take the 40 minute ferry ride to Lamma island for a day off from shopping in the tourist ghettos.
I would happily recommend this hotel to those wanting a slightly different experience of Hong Kong, and I mean that in a good way!
