Upon arrival, we had some miscommunications between our reservations and the Front Desk. We booked our room through Orbitz, and unfortunately it did not specify to the Mira on whether we wanted 2 twin beds or 1 king bed. When we checked in (around 6:30pm), all of the rooms with King beds were taken...and they were about to put us into a room with 2 twin beds. After some back and forth, they were able to fix that and find us a room with a King bed. Winfield saw our disappointment and tried his best to accommodate our needs even though they were fully booked. This really made me like the Mira, and probably secured my loyalty to them should I ever return to Hong Kong.
In addition, the location and the hotel itself were great! The rooms were beautifully designed with a very modern and hip vibe to it. The hotel itself is connected to the Miramar Mall, I believe, which made it really convenient. My boyfriend and I purposefully chose this hotel for its central location, as it is conveniently located in Kowloon on Nathan Road with plenty of shopping, dining, and tourist attractions that are within reasonable walking distance. Yes, the hotel is a bit pricier than others, but it felt good to come home after a long day out in the Hong Kong heat/humidity to a beautiful room (with a nice city view, I might add!).
Some tips for new travelers to HK: if you're looking to save some money on transportation, there is a bus that will take you from the airport and drops you off right by the Mira. Go to the bus queue at the airport, take Bus 21A and get off at The Mira (not exactly sure of the street name, but the bus stops lists the street and the major hotels near it, so just keep a lookout for the Mira...I think it was Stop 12). It will definitely save you money, as the taxi will cost your triple the amount.
Book this place if you're looking for an excellent location and beautiful rooms! All in all, we had a very short (2 nights) stay there, but I will definitely return to the Mira.
