What is the Garden View King Room like?
The room entrance door. The door had a profound feeling.
It was a door of the type which you insert a card key.
There was a closet on the left and a bathroom on the right.
The Garden View King Room’s are tastefully decorated with dark brown-colored furniture and warm-colored lighting.
The room seen from the window side.
The king bed is too large for one person to sleep on. The hardness of the mattress was just right and I could sleep well with fluffy pillows.
On the bedside table there was a phone, a note set and an alarm. There was one outlet socket, and also a conversion plug.
The opposite bedside table has a light switch and a socket.
There is a TV on the wall opposite the bed.

At the end of the desk, there was also an outlet.
There was also lighting on the desk.
There was also a sofa and table for single use by the window.
This room has a window towards the courtyard of the hotel, so you can not see the outside, but it’s not facing outside so you won’t hear any noise of the cars, and it’s very quiet and relaxing. In the courtyard, it seems that only greens are lined up. If you want a view, I recommend a room with a harbor view.
The bathroom door is a sliding door and is also a full-length mirror.
The bathroom is large. There was a bathtub on the right side, a toilet in the front, and a washbasin on the left side.
The shower was removable, the height could be adjusted, and the water pressure was sufficient and could be used without any problems. The shower curtains were double inside and outside, so it was very good as it prevented water from splashing outside.
Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were prepared on the bathtub. The shampoo and a conditioner was good.
Towels were also prepared. Towels were thick and large.
There was also a health meter under the wash basin.
Two complimentary mineral waters were prepared on the wash basin.

Italian and Cantonese Restaurant
Italian restaurant, “Mistral,” is located on the 2nd basement floor.
A Cantonese restaurant, “Sea View,” is also located on the 2nd basement floor.
Environment around the hotel
There are many restaurant bars on the harbor front, so on sunny days you can enjoy your meal while looking at a nice view on the terrace.
Staff and costumer base
It is a luxurious hotel, so the staffs knew what they were doing.
The guests nationalities varied.
The hotel is located in the eastern part of Tsim Sha Tsui. This area is a harbor-front area with many hotels and restaurants around. Access from Hong Kong Airport is easiest by taxi from Kowloon Station by train. It’s a safe place. You can walk to the downtown area of Tsim Sha Tsui in 10 to 15 minutes, and you can travel by subway from there.
Streets around the hotel.
The impression I hd of this hotel was good. I could not enjoy the view in the garden view room, but it is extremely quiet because I am not directly facing the streets, I was able to sleep well without worrying about noises. If you are staying for sightseeing, I recommend the Harbor View Room. There is almost no nothing blocking you from the view of the Victoria Harbor, so I think you will be able to enjoy the view even on the lower floors.
