Expert review of Bishop Lei International House
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in Mid Levels like thousands of Hong Kongers, now’s your chance to find out. The hotel’s owned by the Catholic Diocese, and surprisingly well run. Some way short of five stars of course, but a real home away from Rome.
On the road named after Hercules Robinson, a 19th century governor, half way up the mountain that dominates Hong Kong Island, and about five minutes’ walk from the Escalator, which runs up and down to Central.
227 altogether. The standard rooms are a bit too standard, and the duplex suites sell out fast. But it’s WiFi all over, with cable and satellite telly, and they’ll even lend you a microwave if they’ve got one spare.
Everything is built on a postage stamp in these here parts, stranger. The business centre may not be huge, but it is efficient and there’s also a function room.
It’s not gourmet, but you’re not going to starve either. Dining al fresco is the best part.
The outdoor pool is open from April to November. And three cheers for the Reading Room, that could so easily be turned into another bedroom. The fitness room has good views, if not so much space.
Cheery and helpful.
A generally matey mix of long-stayers, execs unable to afford a harbourside bed, and the odd visiting mum and dad who’ve been boarded out.
Depending on demand and the time of year, there are some surprisingly good rates on offer.
