I stayed for one night only in an Executive room at this hotel in Kowloon and was surprised to see its location in Kimberley Road as I must have walked past it many times on previous visits but never saw a hotel – that’s how unassuming the street presence is of the Luxe Manor, Hong Kong.
This boutique hotel will appeal to those who like quirky interior design. The check-in process was smooth and well organized. I took my own cases up to the room while the bell staff and concierge were busy chatting amongst themselves. The room was on the 11th floor and was small. Even for Hong Kong, it was small. It was however exceptionally clean and well maintained.
The décor can best be explained as French, but it was not my cup of tea. There were a couple of things that detracted from the room, one of which was there wasn’t an iron or ironing board. As such I rang housekeeping to see if they could press a shirt for the next day but it was too late for that service but they offered to send up an iron and ironing board which arrived promptly. Makes you think that it might be a good investment to put one in each room.
The bed was nice and firm with good pillows however it was short. I am used to sleeping in a queen size bed comfortably, but this bed was way shorter. I spent the night with my ankles and feet drooping over the end of the bed. This was very uncomfortable and reduced my sleep time immensely as I continuously woke up.
The rain shower was good and hot but due to the design of the shower area the hotel had put in a shower curtain to reduce the water which effectively reduced your available space to almost nothing. As far as I’m concerned there is nothing worse than a cold and wet shower curtain clinging to your legs as you are trying to wash yourself.
All the expectations were met in the room like a safe [large enough to accommodate a laptop], robes, slippers, plenty of power outlets, flatscreen TV with good English and Chinese channels and an easy to set bedside clock!
I ordered in a meal as I had a lot of work to get through which was delivered in a timely manner. The quality of the food was good; however the meal arrived without any pepper or salt shakers. I missed out on having breakfast as I had to leave at 6:00am in the morning. Not only does the buffet commence at 6:30am but so does any room service. This meant I left the hotel without any breakfast which I thought was a bit poor.
Good central location in TST
Wireless internet speed was great
Food was of a good quality and hot
Tea and coffee making facilities in room
Good sized safe
Robe and slippers
Easy check-in and check-out
The décor doesn’t do it for me, but will suit others. I guess having matching ceramic dog side lamps is a personal style choice
The bed is too short for a 178cm person
Get rid of the shower curtain and come up with another solution to keep water from the tiled floor
Only provided one room key which meant the air conditioning stopped when you left the room
No room service or buffet prior to 6:30am makes for hungry international travelers
No Iron or ironing board
