The T Hotel

The T Hotel has to be experienced to be believed.
The whole concept is about training students for the growing needs of the Hong Kong hospitality industry and the training at T Hotel is completed to the very highest standards. Students are very keen to learn and work to excellent standards supervised by their tutors. Nothing is too much trouble for the trainees or their tutors at T hotel, you will even be escorted to the lift and the correct button pressed for you.

Breakfast is excellent with a wide range of items and the student chefs will cook eggs and omelettes exactly to your liking. Lunch and dinner menus offer choices of Asian and more western style dishes all at a very reasonable cost. The in room dining provision is also very good and reasonably priced.

The rooms and bathrooms are much larger than average hotel rooms. They are well equipped with everything you could possibly need and are very comfortable. Little extra touches such as the hand made biscuits and chocolates brought to the room in the evening and the cute little bath toys all add to the enjoyment of a stay at T Hotel.

The views across the ocean are truly amazing both in the daytime and at night and the sunsets are particularly memorable. Although a little out of town the hotel is easily accessable by public transport and the very helpful reception staff are happy to call a cab for you. Cabs are cheap and efficient.

A visit to. Hong Kong will be made even more enjoyable by staying at T Hotel, I cannot recommend it enough.

What a wonderful experience. No point in repeating what others have said but if you have a few days in Hong Kong and can get a booking; do it!

We arrived late on the A10 bus from the Airport. It stops at the Pok Fu Lam Village bus stop which is less than five minutes walk. There was no one other than the security guard at the front door but we were expected and were taken to the sixth floor where we were checked in. This was about 0100 (1am) after a two hour delay in our flight from Australia.

Apart from the final morning when we utilised the shuttle provided by the hotel to Hong Kong station for the Airport Express check in, we used normal public transport all the time.

If there was to be a criticism, and this has to be a little picky I must admit, the information about the buses TO the hotel (apart from the A10) isn't completely clear. So you could find yourself somewhere in town and not quite know where to catch the bus back!

From the Kowloon side, we found the 973 to be very convenient. It also continues to Stanley and is the best way to get from T Hotel to Stanley. (There are other options but they can be a little confusing or daunting to the visitor).

Quite by chance, on Monday night, after taking the Star Ferry to Central we came across the #22 public light bus. We hadn't used one before and an old man waiting for the bus started to chat (in English). We realised the bus went past Pok Fu Lam and he told the driver where we wanted to get off. An absolutely amazing experience that took us along all these narrow streets in the Mid Levels.

The breakfast at the T Hotel is amazing and the views are beyond description but be prepared for fog and smog so if you're staying a few days and it's clear and you have your camera in hand seize the opportunity!

The staff are unpaid students. They are delightful and try ever so hard (under strict supervision). Some are more outgoing than others. Their appearance and presentation is immaculate (as is everything else around the hotel).

We had a problem with tea bags not having been restocked one day and called reception to ask for some more. It was mid evening and seemed all "too hard" (because of the limited English spoken) so we never saw our additional tea bags. But that was hardly a worry.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room; ours was 603 and was wonderful.

My wife and I stayed at the T Hotel for a week during January 2013 and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel.

We stayed in room 610 which was a very nice room which had a great view out over the bay below. However, while the hotel overall was very quiet the room itself could have quite a lot of noise intrusion. This was coming from the level above and not directly attributable to the hotel. while this was not a problem for us but it could be for someone who is a light sleeper.

The staff at the hotel are students and it is important to keep this in mind when booking. In this respect the service recieved will be directly related to the experience the students have. We enjoyed interacting with the students and found every one of them to be pleasant and extremely helpful.

Breakfast is very good with lots of choice. We also had dinner in the hotel twice and it was also good.

Getting to and from the hotel is very simple. From the airport there are a number of options including taxi, bus or train. We travelled by the Airport Express train to Hong Kong Central. Then by taxi to the hotel. Total travel time was about 35 minutes.

Travelling around from the hotel is also easy. There is a bus stop at the entrance to the complex and there are frequent buses.. The hotel staff will also call a taxi if required. Likewise returning to the hotel is simple. The cost of a bus to Hong Kong Central is around £0.50. While The same trip in a taxi is around £5.00.

We would recommend the T Hotel.

Each night was charged at HK$1130 (GBP92, US$146) while we stayed over Christmas, perhaps the price differs when not Christmas; From Central station in a taxi it costs HK$60 (GBP5, US$8) or $5 per person by bus (of which there are many). Upon booking, you get a easy-to-read bus and route guide. Check-in was easy and staff we eager to help us find all the attractions and things to do in Hong Kong. Since it's a training hotel, there was a manager stood nearby to help in case the trainees couldn't help with a request.

When you go to your room, the trainees give you a small ""tour"" around the room - ours lasted for over 5 minutes which, although it was nice they were wanting to 'show off' the great amenities, we were left thinking 'hurry up, all I want to do is lie down'. The rooms are really big with a whole desk/work area and a nice day bed by the window. Big TV, massive comfy bed, large bathroom with powerful hot shower. Fancy 'electric smart glass' between bedroom and bathroom which turns from regular glass to opaque when you flick the switch. Nice big bath with TV also in bathroom.

Every night they came and left us some treats by the bed - since our visit was over Christmas we had mince pies and Santa cookies - really nice idea. Curtains drawn, slippers laid out by each bedside and the covers pulled back slightly. Breakfast was tasty but the selection only average. Views out over the China sea were really nice to wake up to each morning.

All the staff during our stay were incredibly eager to please, but I'd say it was definitely "American-style" service, with constant "Hello, how are you, Merry Christmas, are you enjoying your stay, is everything OK, anything I can do?" This was nice but sometimes a little 'too much'. We'd definitely stay again and would say don't let the comments about 'being miles away' put you off, it's not - there were no traffic jams, taxis and buses are cheap and frequent. Thanks you T Hotel Team for a lovely Christmas 2012.
