“An oasis in the centre of Hong Kong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

We stopped here for two nights on our way to Beijing and one night on the way back. This hotel is a unique oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle. A quiet, well serviced with beautiful suites. Best of all is the staff who go to any length to make you stay pleasant.
We are already planning another visit and will definately stay at Hullett Hous

Room Tip: Ask for oneof the corner suites. You get your own private balcony

There are loads of places in HK where is knwon for gigantic afternoon tray and set.
I also watned to try P hotel's one, but my friend who is local in HK recommended this space instead.
We booked the terrace, nice weather make me feel more comfortable and the afternoon tea set they presented was really good. It was worth the pay. Also my friend wanted to get cheese platter which is not on the menu since he need something to enjoy with his champaign. But they didn't hesitate to serve the platter for us with reasonable price.
However, I saw they are understaffed. We tried to reach waiters & waitress manytimes, but they didn't show up the terrace very frequently. That was only inconvenience I experienced.
But I would like to recommend the afternoon tea here - rich flavour cakes and lovely presentation, the food arrangement was better than I thought.

Summary: not cheap but worth the experience! The best boutique hotel Hong Kong have to offer in my opinion.

The hotel is at one of the best location of Hong Kong! Some of the best shops, restaurants and views are within 10 mins walk!

Front desk have good service bit the other staff are just OK.

The hotel reuses an old navy police building and the design is flawlessly stunning! You can feel the history here! Each suites are design uniquely and they only have 10 suites! So getting a suite here is tough but well worth it! Be sure to check out the design of each suite and book with a remark so they will reverse the room for you!

The design and the feel of the hotel over thrown the bad parts I am going to mention.

Now the bad parts...

Problem 1- The interior design looks great but usability is terrible! For example the washroom, there is a forest shower head on top that is weak and shower head that is strong but no wall mount to mount it for shower... There is also no curtain so if you are taking a shower water are for sure going to flood your washroom! I stayed in a corner suite, the suite have almost 1/3 of the space being a corridor and there is NOTHING there total waste of space! I can go on and on how bad usability of space and design.

Problem 2- Maintenance and details! For a hotel at this price range and with such stunning design, is sad to see maintenance and details are left out! Furniture are dented here and there, walls are have marking on it, carpets stains, small cracky ceilings, some minor peeling wall paints... Nothing major but totally noticeable to average eye! At this price range in Hong Kong, the maintenance will be far more superior!

Problem 3: breakfast - this is the worst breakfast I have seen for any 5 star boutique hotel! Seriously 2 options only? Bacon, sausage, egg in any style. This is a breakfast options for a 3 star hotel! A big big let down in this department!

Problem 4: staff knowledge - the front desk staff are great but the overall staff are not good enough to match them nor the hotel! At a hotel like this every staff should be well train to know where is where. I asked a staff where do I get breakfast she have no clue! I remarked for a room I like, when I check in it turn out it wasn't remarked. Luckily the front desk staff was smart and gave me a free upgrade to pacify me.

I highly recommend the place to any one who is looking for a boutique design hotel in Hong Kong! This will be a memorable hotel you will remember!

Lovely little hotel with attentive staff.

Huge rooms, clean, nicely decorated, colonial setting, good restaurants to dine (Stables Grill and Loong Toh Yuen are most noteworthy), nice breakfast.
I was a bit scared about the noise of the traffic - you are in the center of tsim sha tsui after all - but it didn't bother too much. It does make the balcony a bit redundant, for that the noise is too big, but it's a nice plus. Noise faded out as even people in HK do get to sleep after 1-2am, so we slept deep and comfortable.

It is true that it's not easy to find the entrance of the hotel, but ask any staff member you encounter and they'll take you there.

If you're looking for an all in experience with spa, gym and all that stuff, better go elsewhere.
If you're looking for a special retreat in HK, with excellent service and no hundreds of other guest around, then book Hullet House.

Hats off for the staff in particular.

At first, location is the best place in Hong Kong.
Near by MTR and star ferry terminal.
Also you can get to harbor just 5 min by work.

Second, room is very large.
Almost hotels in Hong Kong have small rooms but this hotel has not.
Very large room and veranda.

Third, service is very good.
Breakfast and minibar is free, and they send some cookies every day.

At last, very calm.
It located at very famous place but you can heard any noise when you stay in a room.

I attend the Mid Autumn Festival which hosted in the Courtyard of this hotel. It's Chinese festival related to Moon & amazingly you will find different cultures of east meets west here! Good snacks, wine tasting, traditional Chinese items..........interesting to have a visit! Other attractions are, you can buy some interesting products there, I.e., porcelain products, jewelry, leather bags etc. Also, good entertainment. Love to have this type of activity in HK ! For old HKness ! Cheers,

Seldom will you encounter a residence of such character.

Each room is decorated in it's own unique style, and to a very high quality. The check-in service is personalised, and the staff are knowledgeable, professional, and discreet.

The room amenities are of a very high quality, and the bathroom was oversized.

The Stables restaurant serves a great cut of beef - my "plate of shame" was well worth the guilt!

The hotel location is just about as good as it can be - right in the middle of things, but retaining an elegant distance.

This location is especially suitable for special occasions.

Room Tip: Look at the website, and check each room individually. There are only a few of them, so your tour wi...
