The Lan Kwai Fong Hotel in Kau U Fong Road was a great little place in a very convenient location. We had a room (2805) with water views - amongst the skyscrapers. We were on the 28th floor so there weren't too many buildings in the way, but lower down may be less fortunate. The room was smallish but well presented, with all the things you want - quiet (didnt hear a peep from other guests), good airconditioning, a bath/shower, bathrobes, water, fruit bowl on arrival, a safe, a well stocked bar fridge and replacement water each day. The bathroom was tiny, but had everything we needed - if you're a very big person it could be squeezy and annoying. The wardrobe is very little; don't bring lots of things that need hanging! There is a laundry service, at the usual ridiculous hotel prices, but we didn't need it.
There is room service, but the restaurant quarter of Soho is two streets up the hill so we didn't use it at all and can't comment. We did use the dining room once for breakfast - a good continental buffet and hot buffet is available. The restaurant is very popular at night and you do have to book ahead; it may be fine at night, but it isn't a great morning space - the tables are too big for two people and we felt a little lost at ours. There is a open air lounge on the fourth floor; it was lovely and has tea, coffee and water available at all times. It wasn't terribly inviting during the sticky, humid summer weather, but at other times of the year, this would be a terrific place to rest.
The business centre consists of two computers and a printer (and perhaps some other services we weren't looking for); adequate for printing out your boarding pass, but I wouldn't want to have to do much else there.
The hotel provides a handy phone during your stay - a mobile phone with free local calls, free calls to several countries and wifi connectivity. We could stay in touch and check ourt email social media etc vey easily without using our own mobile phones. An excellent feature!
The staff - a legion of them - were all very friendly, spoke excellent English, and were readily helpful. Full marks to all of them.
I'd stay there again.
