Star rating:
5 star hotel

4.6

Meld heritage with some very funky design, and this is what you get.

Hong Kong’s passion for demolishing old buildings just occasionally pauses for breath. And so conservationists heaved a sigh of relief when the former Marine Police HQ (dating from 1881) was converted into a boutique hotel plus designer label enclave.

Location

Just up the road from the Star Ferry, at the southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui.

 

Bedrooms

Hooray for a bunch of suites (10 in all) which are really original, fun to stay in, luxuriously comfortable, and look good enough to eat. Individually named, each has a wildly different décor, although all have airy private balconies (Aldridge has two). Casam has the largest bathroom.

 

Public areas

Not extensive, though there is a meeting room.

 

Eating and drinking

There is some sensational drinking and dining - considering that this is a boutique hotel - in five outlets. Choose from Cantonese, European fine dining, or a grill room (in the former stables). Breakfast is served in The Parlour, while the Mariners’ Rest bar incorporates what used to be the cells.

 

Leisure facilities

If you count shopping as leisure, then Shanghai Tang and all the gang are right on the doorstep.

 

Service

Well up there with the design.

 

Who stays there

Style mavens, trend followers, history buffs, and a sprinkling of ex coppers.

 

Price advice

Regular offers include two nights’ accommodation plus one night free, or a cruise on a sailing junk.
