4 Places to Stay when you are in Hong KongWednesday, July 13, 2016
Mini Hotel, Causewaybay hotel will satisfy lush of a traveler who look for rustic and unique interior with a touch of vintage theme.
As you walk through the staircase down the lobby area, the walkway filled with really antique black & white photos.
Entering the lobby, I was blown away by the interior design. Look at this picturesque cabinet of ceramic display, so quaint looking.
This hotel is very suitable for traveler that are looking for adventure and also those who love to meet new friend... At the lobby area, is a great place to get to know people from around the world. For foodies, this hotel located at Causewaybay, central of Hong Kong where most famous Char Chan Teng and a numbers of hipster cafe is just within walking distance. We stayed in Mini Twin Room, which has all the basic facilities we needed. Couple can stay this room too, combined its just a little smaller than queen size bed but I have no problem falling asleep at all... In fact this bed size is consider quite alright in Hong Kong. Trust me there are smaller room even in private residential.
There is still a small path that we can walk pass after placing our luggage... There's a small table for us to place our things... The things I love is that the room is filled with mirror and plenty of day light coming through the day so makeup is not a problem. Only thing is the bathroom is see through ones, so if you are staying with your friend of a different gender do take note...
If you want bigger space you can opt for other room like Smart Queen Room.

The Charter House, Causewaybay hotel is for family and business traveler who look for comfort stay at a prime location. The hotel itself has a number of selection for food and beverage. There is cafe, pub and a proper restaurant too....
The famous Le Petit Salon is located at the lobby. Here you can taste finest coffee made from the highest-quality beans from famous coffee beans farms in Brazil, Ethiopia and Salvador. Le Petit Salon has partnered with one of the best patisserie in Hong Kong. Thomas Trillion Master Pastry Chef. Take a break from your traveling and have a cup of finest coffee pair with the best pastries in town at Le Petit Salon.
Need to catch up some live game? Champs bar is your best choice. A varieties of drinks and snacks to go along with your live match or even just chilling out with your friends...
If you fill hungry, you can tryout the buffer at Gazebo Restaurant where you can opt for alacarte or buffet spread of varities of oriental and western dishes.
There is variety of room to choose from at The Charter House. I love this newly renovated S signature room for it modern and contemporary design. This room feel really comfortable and that couch is really good for relaxing. For business traveler, there is also a table on the side for you to do some paperwork when you are in the room.
There is also business centre where you can use all the busines facilities there with free wifi.
Travelling with kids? No problem, there is family room which can accommodate up to 4 adults. There is two queen size bed in the room and other basic amenities.
There is also 24 hour gym available... So even if you went out till late at night, you still can workout...No excuses..

If you looking to stay for a longer period in Hong Kong say for a month or longer then Apple Dorm are for you. Here the rental starting from HK$3000, which are inclusive of water, electricity and management fee.
Apple Dorm located at Sham Shu Po, where Dragon centre (Shopping Mall) is just opposite. I love Sham Sui Po area as you can experience a more localized atmosphere where the market is filled with people selling varieties food, gadgets and cloths too... Very old school feeling, just like those Hong Kong movie I watch 10 years back....
The room are about 50 square feet and equipped with one bed..
There is two type of room.. One with just bed and another come with a study/working table.
The bathroom and pantry were on sharing basis. Good thing is you can cook your own food here, so more saving...

When I was told that Stanley is located far away from city I wasn't thrilled at all..... When I arrived at Stanley especially in the morning, I was really surprised by the natural surrounding of Stanley area. There is beach nearby, journey up to Stanley passing through the stunning view of Repulse Bay and the market area let me immerse into how Hong Kong people live their life here... Totally enjoy staying in Mini Studio Stanley.
Almost same room concept with Mini Hotel in Causewaybay but only difference is it gives more relaxing environment. Mini Studio Stanley is really a great choice for those who wants to stay long term with a really relax environment. The monthly rate is about HK$5000 for room from 60-120 square feet. it also provide free wifi and coin operated washing machine. There is also weekly cleaning service so you don't have to clean yourself....
I stayed in a single room, it can be small but liveable... I wish there is a empty space underneath the bed so I can tuck my luggage in.... I live my bag on top of me since theres not much space to walk around...
At the rooftop, you get a breathtaking Stanley Beach view.
You can opt to do you work in the lobby area, desktop is provided and its MAC!!!!!! Totally love this working space...
Or if you are bored you can play pool too... On Saturday night, they play some really upbeat music so you can call a bunch of friend to drink and dance too!!
So if you are in Hong Kong next round, you can opt for any of above hotel to stay. Each of them offer different feel and facilities. Till my next post, bye bye XOXO.
