Expert review of The Salisbury YMCA Of Hong Kong
I marvel every time I pass the Y. Jauntily ignoring the imperious grande dame Peninsula next door, it’s got some of the lowest rates and one of the best locations in the neighbourhood.
At the southern end of the “Golden Mile”, opposite the Cultural Centre and Avenue of Stars, steps from the MTR and – were such conveyances still in operation – two minutes’ by rickshaw from the Star Ferry.
The dorms are as you might expect, with two double bunks each. Sidestep these for rather more a salubrious kip elsewhere in the hotel; the family rooms sleep four comfortably.
Not likely to win any interior design awards soon: but who cares, as there’s plenty of space and even a self-service laundrette.
A café and a dining room – the harbour views from the latter make lingering over any meal well worth it. The food’s fine, if nothing to email home about.
Indoor pool, fitness centre, climbing wall, squash courts, internet café, and even a chapel. Insert Village People lyric of choice here.
Nothing to complain about at all.
It’s not simply fuss-budgets. They could drop the YMCA label and perform very creditably as a regular hotel.
This is probably one of the great accommodation deals of the world - imagine a hotel next to the Eiffel Tower or Statue of Liberty with rates like these!
