This was our first stop on our "holiday of a lifetime" booked through Audley Travel. We were booked for two nights en route to New Zealand and were told that we'd be picked up for private transfer to the hotel. On arrival, there was no one there to meet us so after about 30 minutes waiting, we explored the option of taxi, bus etc to the hotel, as there was no local contact number for Audley in the paperwork. We then find from the airport info desk that the Lan Kwai Fong operate a transfer service from the other arrival gate... go to other arrival gate and get limo to hotel...
First impressions on first time to Hong Kong: busy, busy, busy. The hotel is in a bar and club area in the city, with very small rooms. We had upgraded to a harbour view room and whilst you could just about see the harbour, walking round the bed and finding a home for the two suitcases proved more difficult. Don't be fooled by the photos on the hotel website... most rooms are tiny. Breakfast was interesting... this is a 33 floor hotel (albeit with only about five rooms per floor), but the breakfast room had just 5 (five) tables, but as we were late down due to the previous night flight we didn't have to wait, just share a table with another couple. Very cosy - but time it wrong and it could be a disaster.
Also the hotel advertises a roof-top bar/cafe - there isn't one! and the gym (a couple of running machines and a stepper) was locked... The small rooms have a small en-suite with shower only.
Good points: the hotel's location isn't bad... close(ish) to MTR system, shopping areas, bars and restaurants, and the bed (standard double) was comfortable and had quality linens
