Hotel Jen Hong Kong

  • Room Type : Deluxe City View Room

"Hotel Jen Hong Kong" is located in the Central and Western District, the west of Hong Kong Island. It's a little bit far from the centre area, but it is in a convenient place to move around because there is a free shuttle bus service and a MTR station within a walking distance. There are lots of nice restaurants nearby and the atmosphere around the hotel is a little bit like an old town. You can see Victoria Harbour from the hotel and relax at the rooftop pool. There is a restaurant, a bar, a fitness gym and meeting rooms in the hotel, so it is suitable for both business and leisure.

What does the hotel look like? Check out the entrance and the reception!

The hotel is a slim 28th floor building and looks like a business hotel.

There is an entrance right next to the overpass.

The outside wall of the hotel looked a little bit dirty, but the entrance area was clean and tidy. It  might be a little bit hard to find the entrance because it's a simple design and not like a hotel entrance.

You can get to the reception after you go through the entrance and go up the escalator. The lobby is not such a large space, but it's a bright and modern space.

What is the Deluxe City View Room like?

The size of the Deluxe Room is 24 m² and not big, but I think it's a common size for a business hotel.

You can choose a room with either a queen size bed or twin beds.

There was a seating space in front of the window. I felt a sense of openness when I sat on the bench.

There is a working desk, a wall-mounted TV and a luggage rack. It was convenient there was a plug socket which was compatible overseas.

Bathroom

The sink is outside the bathroom.

There are enough space around the sink. Amenities and the coffee station are prepared around the sink and it was easy to use.

The shower room was on the opposite side of the sink. There was no bathtub, but it was easy to use as the shower head was movable and the water pressure and the temperature are both perfect.

There was a toilet next to the shower room. After walking through the entrance door, I realised I was standing in the bathroom.

Amenities

There is a bottle of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, toothbrush sets and cotton swabs by the sink .

Coffee station

There was a coffee station in the drawer under the sink. An electric kettle and bottles of mineral water were prepared by the sink, too.

A fridge

Closet & Safety Box

A closet was beside the entrance door. There was an iron, an ironing board, slippers and hangers in the closet. There is not much space to hang a long coat.

A safety box

The view from the room

You can see buildings and mountains in the distance from the City View Room. It's nothing special.

Restaurant and lobby lounge

The hotel has a restaurant and a bar. You seem to be able to use a club lounge if you stay on the club floor.

You can enjoy Malaysia and Singapore street-style food at "Café Malacca" which is on the second floor. It is known for locals.

"Lobby Bar and Lounge" is next to the reception area. You can enjoy soft drinks and light meals there.

Rooftop pool and gym

There is an outdoor pool on the rooftop. It is free to use for relaxation and workout.

The fitness gym was very compact, but you can refresh.

Area around the hotel

The old buildings and the bustle of the area around the hotel made me feel this must be an old part of Hong Kong.

There is an Arome Bakery on the ground floor of the hotel.

A launderette was also nearby. Because there are many restaurants and shops, and a constant stream of people around the hotel.

Access

It is located in the west of Hong Kong Island. It takes a 35-minute drive from Hong Kong International Airport. You can arrange an airport shuttle for a fee. Taxis are also useful.

It is a 13-minute walk to MTR HKU Station (Hong Kong University Station) from the hotel. A free shuttle bus runs from the hotel and you can go to Central, Sheung Wan, Wan Chai, Peak Tram station, Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Staff & Customers

The staff members were polite and friendly, helped me to book a restaurant and explain a shuttle bus service. There were both Asian and Western guests in the hotel. There seems to be more business people and couples than families with children.

Summary

Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, chain of Kelly Group based in Hong Kong, renewed the old hotel in 2014 and opened this “Hotel Jen Hong Kong”. It was a small hotel overall, but I was able to have a comfortable time as everything was new. It was really nice to sit by the window and have a cup of tea there. There is a shuttle bus service and it was close to MTR and a tram station, so it was convenient though it was far from the centre area. There are lots of great restaurants around the hotel, so you’ll be happy about it, too. The security was also strict as we couldn’t take an elevator without a key card. I can understand why there are lots of guests through online reviews.
