We were looking for a hotel in Hong Kong and at the time, the “Park Lane Hotel”:https://www.parklane.com.hk/index.html on Hong Kong Island was offering 4 nights for the price of three, so appeared a good choice. Arriving at 8.30am, we found they had separate check in and check out desks, and heard the magic words, ‘we have a room ready’.

Our room on the 20th floor was spacious with a good-sized, comfortable double bed and all the usual amenities: TV, desk, iron, robes and slippers, tea and coffee making facilities (including coffee machine), fridge stocked with beer and soft drinks, large, easily accessible, simple safe and interestingly, a yoga mat. Unusually, for a smart hotel, wifi was free and quick. Two bottles of complimentary water were provided daily and helpfully, there were UK 3 pin plug points.

The bathroom was a good size with a trendy glass wall between it and the bathroom although I suspect most people pull the curtain for modesty. There was a good shower over the bath, but we found the glass hand basin slightly disconcerting. Towels were fluffy, there was a vast range of toiletries, shoe shine etc and a decent hair dryer. Our view out was of Great George Street with an M&S food and drink outlet.

The concierge desk was extremely helpful and provided a wealth of advice on metro tickets, restaurant recommendations, maps and directions. The hotel was located with good access for all the tourist and other sites, either on foot to the noon day gun, or to the MTR or tram stops to go further afield.

We enjoyed the ground floor hotel bar (Ebb and Flow) for reviving coffee after a day’s sightseeing and pre-dinner happy hour G&Ts, which were beautifully served and came with snacks. It was well used and provided great service.

The 27th floor had the open-air Skye Bar and we had a rather expensive glass of wine at 5.30pm and watched Hong Kong light up whilst the waiter told us he’d worked in the UK in Wood Green (near where we live now), and York (near where I used to live).

Breakfast was on the first floor Playt restaurant. There was a great selection of both western and Asian food and each day we ate something different. The area was large, but the layout allowed you to find a ‘quiet spot’. The restaurant also offered dinner options, which we didn’t use.

At check out the service was slick and efficient, and a bonus was being asked if we wished to pay our room charges in either cash or by credit card in HK dollars or sterling.
