Just up the road from the Star Ferry, at the southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui.
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.
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.
If you count shopping as leisure, then Shanghai Tang and all the gang are right on the doorstep.
Well up there with the design.
Who stays there
Style mavens, trend followers, history buffs, and a sprinkling of ex coppers.
Regular offers include two nights’ accommodation plus one night free, or a cruise on a sailing junk.
