Langham Place Hotel Hong Kong

Langham Place Hotel Hong Kong is very new.  It opened in Nov 2004 and is right next to a giant shopping mall Langham Place which seems to be a planned project to allow MongKok to have something posh on top of the cheap Ladies' Lane image.



It is quite easy to get to.  I took the MTR underground train to Mongkok station. There is clear sign in the MTR station for the right exit to the hotel.  You will first see a tall new building that says Langham Place but that is the shopping mall.  The Langham Place Hotel is across the street.  I went to the main entrance (where the taxi unloads passengers), I could also see workmen were still working on the small piece of garden by the front door.  They are trying to put an extra piece of green in this concrete city which shows their effort to make it nice.  I went in, (probably looked rather lost), their hotel staff came to me to offer help. It turns out that the lobby is on the fourth floor because that is the level that joins to the Langham Place shopping mall. 

The breakfast restaurant is also on the 4th floor.  It's called The Place.  The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating, though when I asked for an outdoor table they said that it was not opened.  I guess they were still working on the plant and decoration coz after I've finished, I went out to have a look and there were people poking around as if there is more work to be done (though it looks 99% done).

The image Langham Place Hotel gives me is that, it is very modern with all sorts of latest technology.  It has very high ceiling so it feels very spacious.  The man height stone sculptures is another feature in the hotel.

I had tea in The Place in the hotel again in Chinese New Year.  The tea buffet is very good value of money.  You may want to give it a try.
