If you feel at little apprehensive about staying in Hong Kong then try the T hotel. Out of the city centre, but on bus routes, this is a quiet alternative. Being a training institution it offers real value for money. (I doubt we could have afforded room service anywhere else!) The students are eager to please -overwhelmingly so at times! The rooms are delightful. and the small, plastic bath toy adds a charmingly whimsical note. We were able to watch the black Kites circling in the valley. Some of the breakfast offerings were rather under-cooked to our taste but all was beautifully presented. The club sandwich was good and the pistachio desert a treat. Arriving late at night we took a taxi from the airport.. We had booked a ' Hong Kong greete'r tour with Amy for our first morning. She met us at the hotel with Octopus cards in hand and proceeded to show us how to use them to negotiate the excellent public transport.For an initial venture you can cross the road and walk up beside Pok Fulum village and around behind the concrete structure on the right -go down the road a bit and find the entrance to a small local shopping centre with a couple of chain style eateries and a supermarket.
Stanley Market (well worth a visit) is easily accessible by bus from the main road outside the hotel (Pok Fulum Village stop) Help yourself and the students -give the T-Hotel a try.
