Expert review of Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

All-round excellent hotel – a joy to stay at whether business or leisure.

I’d be recommending the Kowloon Shang even without the fact that it was here I first took a rather alluring Flemish lady (to whom I’m now married) for dinner in 2005. Food (and romance) aside, there are some cracking harbour views and a great deal more to enjoy in situ.

Location: 

Right above an MTR station, looking out over the harbour, and slightly removed from the heady brouhaha that is the main part of Tsim Sha Tsui.

Bedrooms: 

Nearly 700 rooms and suites, with the relevant modern technology seamlessly blended into a very smart contemporary décor. The 24-hour butler service provided in the suites would make Jeeves look to his laurels.

Public areas: 

The owners are rather fond of chandeliers, and those suspended from the lobby’s grandiose ceiling witness constant comings and goings throughout the day.

Eating and drinking: 

Just thinking about Café Kool is enough to make my mouth water: a slew of open kitchens that fairly hum to the rattle of woks and roaring flames. Tables are often full of Hong Kongers, elbows out and heads down. Angelini (Italian) and Shang Palace (Cantonese – two Michelin stars) are similarly excellent.

Leisure facilities: 

Indoor pool and lots of health and fitness options. The Shang’s signature Chi spa is eagerly awaited.

Service: 

The staff seem to move about on castors, and have that gift of hospitality, making everyone feel welcome without overdoing it.

Who stays there: 

Shang is well known and respected on the mainland, so many guests are drawn from over the border. In general, there’s a healthy mix of business and leisure guests.

Price advice: 

Surely your accountant must see the advantages of staying on the executive floor, even if he or she can’t take in the marine panoramas from the Horizon Lounge on the hotel’s uppermost storeys.

Pros: 
Excellent all-round package
Cons: 
No spa yet
