Wan Chai's newest boutique hotel, managed by Regal Hotels International, is aimed at younger business travellers with a taste for trendy surroundings and hi-tech facilities.
With only 50 guest rooms and suites, it is also small enough to offer a personalised service to guests and has obvious advantages in terms of location. Right in the heart of Wan Chai's lively bar and restaurant scene, it is about three minutes walk to the nearest MTR station and only 10 minutes on foot to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Rooms have a distinctively modern look with extensive use of glass and diffused lighting, and guests enjoy complimentary in-room Wi-fi broadband internet access. LCD televisions, with international programming, and iPod speaker systems are standard in all rooms, as is "iClub Touch", a multifunction touch-screen panel which gives guests easy interactive access to a range of hotel services, including wake-up calls, bell service, conference room reservations and express check out. Big "Rainshower" shower heads are standard in all bathrooms.
Complimentary internet access is also available in iCafe, a 40-seat lobby level all-day dining restaurant serving "Pan-Asian" cuisine to residents and Wan Chai locals.
Room rates start at HK$2,000 per night for a basic iSelect room and HK$4,000 per night for an iSuite. Special rates are available for long-staying guests.
