Conrad Hong Kong

25

A good, conveniently-located hotel that’s been in Hong Kong since 1990. More luxurious hotels have arrived in the city since then, but the Conrad has a loyal business clientele that values its reliability, great views and executive lounge.

Location

The hotel is connected to Pacific Place, a high-end mall that’s above Admiralty MTR station, one stop from Central. It’s next to Hong Kong Park, which makes it ideal for early morning strolls and access to the Peak Tram. It’s also opposite the British Consulate. In the cool season, you can walk to Central on the elevated walkways that connect the city.
Address: Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong.

Style & character

The hotel’s been in Hong Kong since 1990 and when it was renovated in 2010, it took on an auspicious golden hue – golden lifts, golden pillars – that, combined with its high, spacious lobby and outside greenery, gives the public areas a sense of light. Although it’s primarily a business hotel (DHL envelopes are provided in your desk drawer), it likes to position itself as a city resort at weekends.

Service & facilities

Very experienced as you’d expect, especially in the executive lounge, which was renovated in 2014 and deliberately aims at home-from-home personal warmth. There’s a pleasant heated outdoor pool with cabanas and a 24-hour gym, with sauna and steam rooms. The hotel also has two treatment rooms for massages.

Rooms

Rooms are situated from floors 40 to 58 and views are either of the harbour or the Peak (first-time visitors tend to choose the harbour but the Peak view is impressive). They’re not the most fashionable rooms in the city, and some of them can be a bit musty, but they’re pleasantly comfortable, and the bathrooms are unusually large, with double basins. Through the Conrad’s concierge app, you can chose your bathroom amenities in advance, and all rooms have Nespresso machines.

Food & drink

There are six outlets, including Chinese restaurant Golden Leaf, which has one Michelin star, and the Lobby Lounge, which is well-known among local office workers for its curry buffet on weekdays. Nicholini’s, one of the best Italian restaurants in Hong Kong, also does a famed Sunday brunch.

Located on Level 8, Brasserie on the Eighth features sophisticated and creative continental dishes and is the perfect setting for lunch or a casual evening with friends over a glass of wine. The open kitchen is complemented by an extensive salad counter and dessert display, each created with the freshest ingredients and produce. Enjoy Beef tenderloin ‘Rossini style’, Provençale style roaster rack of lamb, or roasted Tiger prawns gratinated with ginger and lime. This restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and welcomes guests in smart-casual attire.

Pacific bar is a tranquil oasis above the bustle of Hong Kong’s business district. The intimate seating and wide selection of cocktails, wines and whiskeys make Pacific bar a popular choice for an after-hours meeting with colleagues or a relaxed get-together with friends.
