Hong Kong's Pottinger Hotel Blends Old World and New World
Rising from Hong Kong's oldest historic stone slab street is the city's newest addition to the bustling hotel scene. The Pottinger is a perfect balance of Eastern service and sensibility with Western amenities.
Located in the vibrant neighborhood of Central, Pottinger offers 68 guest rooms that showcase Hong Kong's romantic rich heritage, reflecting the wealth of its diverse culture. The standard rooms are perfect enough, but the seven suites, each named after streets in the neighborhood, are a bit more special with bespoke decor. Besides a calming and relaxing palate, all rooms include free wifi, bottled water and toiletries by Acca Kappa.
While the rooms might be elegantly appointed, each room also displays photography from Chinese artist, Fan Ho. The artist is best known for stunning black & white shots from around Central so they may offer up some inspiration to capture your own Hong Kong memories.
Only five minutes from the MRT station, the hotel's location allows perfect exploration of the steep steps the neighborhood is known for. From tea houses, boutique shopping, heaps of culture and plenty of restaurants, one of the world's most vibrant cities is right on your doorstep.
Just make sure you type the right address into your Google Maps since the main hotel entrance is on Stanley Street, but the mailing address is on Queen's Road; we can't have you ruining your vacation before you even get to the hotel.
Standard room rates start from, a very affordable, $1,880 HKD ($242 USD).
