Expert review of Novotel Citygate Hong Kong

Very smart hotel poised by the airport, 30 minutes by train from Central.

It seems like yesterday that I was enjoying a picnic on a deserted beach near Tung Chung: in a couple of decades it’s mushroomed into an entire New Town, of which the 23-storey Citygate is the centrepiece. There’s no better example of Hong Kong’s supersonic development.

Location: 

The hotel’s joined to a shopping mall that leads to the westernmost station of the territory-wide mass transit rail system. Unlike the other two airport-vicinity hotels, this is actually part of a residential community that enjoys taking the air and shooting the breeze in the plaza by the station.

Bedrooms: 

Shock advice – pick a room facing the airport: they’re triple-glazed and you won’t hear a thing, but you are presented with a marvellous aerial circus. The muted tones that seem to be the leitmotif of early 21st century hotel design predominate within the 440 rooms. Pleasant open bathrooms plus touch key door entry. Guests familiar with other Novotels may be surprised by this very upper tier four-star.

Public areas: 

This is a busy hotel, not least for being regarded as an oasis by Hong Kongers who pop by during shopping mall expeditions.

Eating and drinking: 

One Asian Fusion (show kitchen; all day dining), one Mediterranean, both serving probably the best food in Tung Chung.

Leisure facilities: 

The view from the gym overlooks the 20-metre outdoor pool, which is decorated with a rather suggestive Italian sculpture. Nuff said.

Service: 

Well up to Hong Kong’s legendary standards.

Who stays there: 

Primarily business travellers, but also holidaymakers who can dip into Disneyland, dolphin-watching trips and the Big Buddha cable car with equal facility.

Price advice: 

Check out the other two airport hotels - Regal and Marriott - to get the best rate.

Pros: 
Great out of town option
Doorstep shopping
Cons: 
Less ambience than city centre properties
