I managed to snag a spacious hotel room at Causeway Bay for my recent Hong Kong trip and I really want to share this discovery with everyone!

As most of us know, housing unit in Hong Kong tends to be small and the same trend applies to many hotels there. Formerly known as JIA, a change in ownership resulted in its rebranding to J Plus Boutique Hotel. Despite this change, the hotel continues to boast its signature design by Philippe Starck and the stylish, chill-out ambiance that JIA was reputed for remains.

The hotel lobby, which is adorned with different Starck chairs. Complimentary breakfast and afternoon cakes are served here for hotel guests.

The front desk of the hotel looks like an entrance of a trendy club!

I booked the one-bedroom suite, which is about 780 square feet. The room was huge with its own dining area, living area and even a kitchenette!

A day bed at the living area.

And there is another day bed at the balcony area, hidden behind the huge flat-screen TV. This is my favourite hiding corner.

The kitchenette that has a microwave, fridge and stove… even a frying pan.

The washroom. The only downside is there was no bath tub.

The bedroom, which is a separate room, allows you to enjoy quality sleep and peace even if your room mate or significant other is watching the TV at the living area. There is also a work desk and free broadband wifi for you to catch up on your work.

Location wise, the hotel is nestled at Irving Street  (Cantonese: Yee Wing Gai) in Causeway Bay, just directly opposite the famous Ding Tai Feng in Regal Hong Kong Hotel. I highly recommend you to try the dimsum at  Michelin Bib Gourmand eatery Fu Sing Seafood Restaurant located at Regal Hong Kong, which has highly raved char-siew pastries.

The daily room rate for a one-bedroom suite is about HKD1800 (excluding 10% service charge), and even cheaper if you book in advance. For business travelers who would like to have a different experience from the tried and tested 5-star hotels at Central, I think J Plus Boutique Hotel could be a good alternative away from the concrete jungle if you do not mind commuting to your office in Central via the MTR. J Plus is a mere 3-5 minutes walk to Causeway Bay station.

这次的香港之行,有幸入住时尚感强烈的J Plus精品酒店。这酒店是JIA的前身,之前获得不少旅游杂志的设计奖项。毕竟,这是全亚洲首家由 Philippe Starck操刀设计的精品酒店。酒店大厅便通过各种不同Starck设计的椅子,以及轻松的Chill Out音乐,营造出前卫与舒适惬意的气氛。本人所住的套房非常宽敞舒适,真的有家的感觉。酒店位置在香港岛铜锣湾,离地铁站非常靠近,套房的价格大概1800港币(不含10%服务费),真的非常合理。大家若要到香港旅游或公干,不妨考虑这家精品酒店。
