Expert review of The Mira Hong Kong

How to turn a run-down, down-town property into a sensation!

It used to be The Miramar. I went once, and swore never again. Then – ta-daaaaa! – they gutted the place, waved a megabucks magic wand, and swanned that ugly duckling. Rarely has dropping three letters had such an impact.

Location: 

On Nathan Road, opposite Kowloon Park, backing onto one of the older quarters of Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s kinda frenetic, even given the green lung across the street.

Bedrooms: 

The sleeping accommodation can be summed up by the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair in each of the 492 rooms – stylish, eye-catching, witty, and downright comfortable. Add in a Nokia mobile that works around the city, plus all-in-one computer and entertainment centre. In short: probably a much nicer home-away-from-your-own-home, dressed out in a bold palette of colours. Suite 508, designed by Miami-based Charles Allem, has its own bamboo’d garden terrace next to the courtyard bar. Please note some rooms have very little in the way of a view.

Public areas: 

Hardly any of the old hotel was retained, although the lobby dazzles - somewhere between Star Trek and Space Odyssey. Don’t expect to roam around extensive grounds, though the central courtyard is pleasant.

Eating and drinking: 

A definite strongpoint, with special regard to fine dining at Whisk, courtesy of Singaporean celebrity chef Justin Quek, who does “Franco-Canto”.

Leisure facilities: 

Breath-taking basement spa, pool and gym. 

Service: 

Truly excellent.

Who stays there: 

Very popular with cashed-up Mainlanders; the ballroom attracts its fair measure of meeters and conventioneers.

Price advice: 

The spa is exceptional, even by Asian standards, so well worth treating yourself.

Pros: 
An extremely slick renovation
Stunning spa
Cons: 
Hectic Nathan Road location
Ground floor shopping mall renovations due to finish early 2011
