The T hotel was probably the best kept secret in Hong Kong but with all of the terrific reviews it gets the harder it is to book this magnificent valued property in Hong Kong.
It is a "Training Hotel" where students get truly 1st hand experience in all aspects of hotel operation such as, reservations and registration personnel, waiters and waitresses, kitchen staff, housekeeping, laundry, guest services, concierge and the like all under the guidance and supervision of excellent management and trainers who also assist with language translation since most of the students only speak the local language.
The hotel is located about 15 minutes by cab from Central. It is comprised of about 30 rooms on a single floor of a Chinese training facility over looking the South China Sea and Hong Kong harbor.
The rooms are magnificent with only the finest of bedding and linens. Spotless bathrooms that have both a bath (with an in wall TV) and separate shower. the shower has a standard wall mount shower head also and overhead rain shower. Both provide ample water flow and as hot as you like. They even give you little rubber duckies toys for the bath each night. The in room amenities are that of 5 star hotels complete with a fully stocked mini bar, tea kettle, snacks, bath robes, iron, hair dryer etc. yet the cost is only that of local 3 star properties. There is a small desk area complete with docking stations and charging capabilities for most electronics. Flat screen TV's with multiple channels is another valued asset. The view from the room is spectacular at any time of day or night which you can enjoy comfortably while seated by the window.
The restaurant / dining room provides awesome views throughout the day and night while you enjoy wonderfully prepared and presented meals at very reasonable prices. I chose to have the breakfast included in my room rate. The breakfast buffet is one that everyone can enjoy. Fresh eggs and omelette are prepared in moments. Bacon, sausage, baked beans, fried tomatoes along with a varied selection of Asian cuisine. A selection of the finest meats and cheeses fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and fresh breads and pastries is also there for you to choose from.
" Afternoon High Tea " is also a delightful treat. At dinner time they offer a limited menu as they do not cater to a large number if clients each evening as most guests are also experiencing other eateries in Hong Kong to. The limited menu however is more than adequate for most palates.
There is a fully functional gym, a new spa, with limited services at this time, and a business center for those in need.
The hotel provides a free shuttle service to various locations three times a day. They have cards printed with the local bus service routes, and have a list of distances to various locations, approximate taxi costs and travel times.
Honeymooners, families singles and couples will all like this hotel.
It does not get much better than this in Hong Kong and for the price you pay it is really a very good deal.
Thank you to each and everyone at the T hotel. See you next year, god willing.
