Summary

How was Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong Hotel? As one of the flagship hotels, rooms, facilities, and staff are amazing as expected. The building itself is old, but since it was refurbished in places and maintained firmly, it is not dissatisfying. Elegant furniture with good quality and beautiful bathroom are comfortable and easy to use. The view from the harbor view room is also very beautiful so please do not hesitate to select the room on the side of the harbor. Because the central area of the hotel is close to the subway as it is nearby, this hotel is recommended for those who stick to the location conditions and hospitality.
