Chic - Trendy - Top Hotel
In May 2009 I stayed in the W-Hotel, a very new, very chic, very modern and very luxurious hotel in Kowloon.
What a difference to the backpackers dormitory, where I staid 20 years ago in Hongkong! I was dazled by all this splendor and space.
Unique Quality: The rooms are spacious and designed in clear colors. A big bathroom, where you can watch TV from the bathtub, is nice. I did not like, that the bathroom is open to the sleepingroom. But that seems to be normal today.
The swimmingpool on top of the 76floor scysraper offers spectacular views.
Restaurants and bars are very nice, very cool. Much modern art everywhere
What can I say? W-Hotel is a hotel where you just get everything you need and more. Actually I prefer the old fashioned hotels with a separated bathroom.
Directions: The W-Hotel is located in the harbour area of Kowloon. There is a big shopping mal in the complex. Also the Kowloon station of the Airport-Train is here. It is about 10 Minutes walk to Temple Street and Nathan Road.
