Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located near the main Causeway Bay MTR, Star Ferry lines, and restaurants
  • Rooms are clean and modern and offer views of the city
  • Flat-screen TVs
  • A Cafe x Lounge features a good happy hour drinks special
  • Bathrooms are well-kept
  • Minibar with free beverages, and space to store food

Cons

  • Incredibly small rooms
  • The bathrooms aren't closed off from the rest of the room
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

Flanked on either side by tall, skinny buildings, the mid-range, 80-room Hotel Bonaparte feels a bit claustrophobic even from the outside. And inside is no different: The all-black lobby, while swanky, is tiny with low ceilings. And the rooms are even smaller than most in this city -- it may take a minute to decide how best to navigate the minuscule space if there is more than one person in the room at a time. Still, the rooms are clean with updated amenities like flat-screen TVs, free minibars, and modern platform beds. One aspect that may bother some guests is the open flow into the bathrooms (in several cases, the bathroom is completely exposed through glass walls). Despite this openness, each bathroom is adorned in tiny, pretty iridescent tiles and features a walk-in shower. The property lacks a spa, fitness center, and meeting spaces, but there is a small cafe with a good happy hour special. With a central location near major metro lines, Hotel Bonaparte is a good option for both business travelers and tourists who are used to capsule hotels.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Under an hour from the airport (traffic will make this trip longer), and just a few minutes' walk to a major metro station and bus stops. Public transportation is the way to go in this crowded city.

Hotel Bonaparte by Rhombus is located in Hong Kong's Wan Chai neighborhood, close to Times Square Shopping Mall, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and Hong Kong Central Library.

Hong Kong is filled with skyscrapers and tightly packed streets. Traffic can be a problem, so public transportation is the way to go here, and visitors can get around everywhere in this way. Another way to take in the sights is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor, one of the world's busiest harbors. It's an essential part of local commuter life, but also an important aspect of the city's tourism. Once at Victoria Harbor's waterfront, visitors can seek the Avenue of the Stars -- Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Avenue of the Stars is accompanied by the Symphony of the Stars, a sound and light show that pays tribute to the city's film industry. Visitors can experience thrill rides at Ocean Park Theme Park, or get lost in the magic at Hong Kong Disneyland, which incorporates the different lands of Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

To escape the madness of the city, visitors can take the Peak Tram -- which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city -- to Peak Tower, where they'll find Once at the top, The Peak shopping, dining, and The Sky Gallery displaying artwork by local Hong Kong artists.
