The hotel also has direct access to Citygate Outlets, which will provide you with cheap fashion brand shopping if you have a short layover in Hong Kong. In addition you have easy access to the Ngong Ping cable cars, a five minute walk from the hotel, which will take you on a fantastic 25 minute ride over the island tops on your way to the Giant Buddha and the Wisdom path.

The rooms are contemporary and small but functional as you often find in Hong Kong where space comes at a premium. The bathroom is an integral part of the room to save on space. The furniture and decorations looks a little dated and could do with an update but overall the space is comfortable and inviting.

Pros

  • Good location just 5 minutes ride from the airport and great transport options
  • A great outdoor pool and a 24h gym
  • Attached to a shopping centre

Cons

  • The hotel and the rooms are average at best
  • Often priced over £100 which is expensive for the location
  • Often long waits to check in and out due to busloads of flight crews using the hotel

Verdict

The hotel is very conveniently located from Hong Kong International Airport, so if you have a short layover and don’t feel like trekking into town it is perfect, however it is often overpriced for the location due to the convenience for flight crews and group tours.
