Conrad Hong Kong

The Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong, is located in Admiralty which is a commercial district most famous for the very large shopping mall called Pacific Mall which sells all manner of brand name merchandise.  Admiralty is also between Central, which is the central business district in Hong Kong, and Wan Chai where the Convention and Exhibition Centre is located.  This central location makes the Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong, popular with business travelers and those attending business conferences as a place to stay as well as for locals who want to use the restaurants. 

I have been there many times for lunch, tea and dinner.  I took my mum to the Italian restaurant to have lunch on the Mother’s day.  It was a lunch buffet plus they served us a baby lobster each.  Hong Kong people just love seafood!   The food is good and is not over-priced compared to the typical prices for Mother’s day. 

I went to the Garden Café to have tea and dinner in separate occasions.  The Garden Café has both indoor and outdoor tables and the outdoor ones are next to the swimming pool to give you a resort hotel feel.  Unfortunately the pool is quite small with the shallowest end 0.8 meter deep.  Hedges are planted around the restaurant so that guests inside the restaurant can’t see the swimming pool to give the swimmers and sun-bathers some privacy. 

The waiters in the Garden Café speak quite good English, which is more than you can say for the staff in some of the medium priced hotel where the waiters sometimes struggle to understand you or to make themselves understood in English.  Hopefully those are students having their placement in hotel.

The tea buffet is about HK$140 plus 10% service charge.  It has both dishes for main meal and tea time snacks.  It is as much a full buffet as you would get in many other places for lunch or even dinner so you could certainly fill yourself up.  What was not full was the restaurant itself.  On a Sunday at 4PM there were probably only 3 tables taken. 

One down side of the Garden Café at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong is that when winter comes, you will not want to sit outside.  They do have space heaters, those large lamp-post looking devices, to heat the outside areas but it can still get a bit windy and inside is surely preferable. 

You may want to book a table early on special occasions like Christmas, New Year and the night before Chinese New Year (which whole family get together on that day). 

The Conrad Hotel has two entrances - the main one at the junction of Supreme Court Road and Justice Road and another one is actually inside the Pacific Place Shopping Mall.  I can never work out which floor is which but there are signs in the arcade to show you the direction.  As there is an entrance to the MTR underground in the basement of the arcade traveling around is convenient.  

Attractions nearby include:

  • Hong Kong Park with aviary, fountains, greenhouse and children’s playground  which is literally opposite to the hotel main entrance
  • The park also holds the Museum Teaware which is very interesting; it is in the old Flagstaff House which is a colonial era building of interest itself.  Notice the museum is about Teaware, tea pots and cups and so on, not about tea itself.
  • Slightly further away, a 10 minute walk, is the Peak tram station to the Victoria Peak
  • Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens are also in walking distance.

Two other major hotels are connected to the Pacific Place Shopping Mall are:
