“Rare jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

Like all rare jewels you will find flaws . If you are looking for them. They completely blow you away with the service and with their attentiveness. The rooms are large and comfortable and the views good. There is a love
Y open terrace where you can have your meals. The staff are all students and any mistakes they make is usually delicious charming. Which goes to show that guests do not expect perfection but attitude is all important.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

A really luxurious hotel with excellent service. It's also an interesting place to stay - watching the students learning and improving their skills. When my husband checked out there were 24 people watching and learning! The views from the hotel are stunning and it's reasonably convenient for transport (plenty of buses outside the hotel). The food is excellent - particularly the breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed on our first trip to Hong Kong as a result of previous reviews and even so were amazed at the overall quality of service combined with exceptional value.From the Security staff to Reception,Kitchen,Restaurant and Housekeeping the customer care and courtesies extended were a revelation.
The views over the South China Sea from the restaurant and rooms are spectacular and whilst the location is on the south side of the island,the efficiency and accessibility of Hong Kong's public transport systems outside the hotel made the trip to Central very easy.
The young Trainees are charming,polite and eager to please under the guidance of their Mentors and their commitment to learning and giving excellent service is a pleasure to experience-congratulations to VTC for such an innovative hospitality training venture.
We look forward to our next visit which will automatically include The T Hotel!

Room Tip: South side and corner suites are large and with superb views

The T hotel is not a 5* hotel, it is a training hotel where students learn their craft. Having said that, the rooms and bathrooms are 5* quality, the breakfasts were superb (bravo to the outstanding pastry chef), and the service is excellent. It's good value too, and although a bit out of the way (not far from Aberdeen), buses are frequent and cheap and give easy access to the city centre as well as to Aberdeen and Stanley. We shall return next time we go to Hong Kong.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms have wonderful views

Myself & my wife stay at the t hotel as a stop over, the level of customer care from the moment you pull up to the hotel is fantastic. Yes there are a lot of young trainee staff looking awkward around the hotel, but it's a training hotel so you expect that, and they are so polite,and eager to learn there hospitality skills, from their mentors,who are always close at hand to help. The rooms were very spacious & very clean. The hotel food for breakfast & evening meal was very nice also.the
Location was a 10 minute taxi ride from the centre of Hong Kong Islandso close enough, but also far enough out of the city so was quiet on a evening.
We really enjoyed our time at
The t hotel & if we visit again we would definately stay there.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody

First of all you have to be aware that this is a training hotel. Service might not be as fast or as perfect as in other hotels but you get an insight in the job of hospitality workers. There is always one of the excellent teachers nearby, so if any unfamiliar problem arises you are not left alone with the trainee. No worries.

I have stayed here with my partner in February, so it was still rather cold in Hong Kong. The rooms were warm enough and the beds are fantastic. Hardly ever slept that good in a hotel bed. The view from your room is amazing. You overlook the west coast of Hong Kong Island and the South China Sea. You even can have a hot bath and have a look at the ships passing by.

The T Hotel is a bit outside of the city but there is a bus stop nearby and in 15-20 min you are in the city centre. Going by cab is also affordable.

I would always try to stay at this place in Hong Kong!

Nothing to say about the hotel : everything is perfect!
Rooms are quite large for Hong Kong ; a majority of them have the view on the see.
They are well furnished with everything you need! everyday they clean the room with attention and nothing is missing.
If you can, take a suite...for the price of a room in an other hotel in Hong Kong you will offer you a big (80 sq m) fantastic suite with drastic view on the channel!! look at the picture. The 2 best ones are 618 and 623.
If you take the bus 30X, you will be in Central in 10 min, with the other bus it takes more time.
The restaurant is quite good and really not expensive (even for wines) but the service is not so good than for the room and very slow.
Be carefull the announce the dinner until 10:00 p.m. but in fact you have to order (even the desert) before 9:30!
There is also a fitness place opens between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. (well furnished) but no swimming pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view or better for suite (618 or 623)
