Our favourite rooms
All suites feel like the penthouse here: you’ve your own private lift lobby, every conceivable need met for a self-sufficient stay, and zero neighbours. But, book the suites creeping up towards the actual penthouse level, dubbed the Harbour and City View Suite, and you’ll get best-of-the-bunch views from on high: a sweep over Sheung Wan down to Victoria Harbour.
Bring a few personal trinkets to add to the home-from-home ambience: a treasured book, a family photograph, the heirloom silver…
You'll be lent a smartphone with a WiFi hotspot to use during your stay.
Children are welcome. Under-6s can stay in the existing bed for free and one extra bed can be added to suites on request (HK$550 a night).
From babies to tweens and teens.
Any, they're all generously proportioned.
There’s very little to do on site, so bring treasured toys from home. Kids will love the go-go-go atmosphere around Sheung Wan and a ride on the Peak Tram. Further afield, hop on a ferry to the stilted village of Tai-O, or Ocean Park to the south of the island, for waterslides and other thrills.
The bite-size dishes of local dim-sum stops and Hong Kong’s ice-cream parlours will keep smalls sated.
There’s little baby kit at the hotel, so stash all essentials in your suitcase.
