Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Thoughtful details like free afternoon tea, labeled pillows (soft/firm), and espresso machines
  • Rooms are tidy and stylish, with contemporary furnishings
  • Modern bathrooms are quite large and feature Molten Brown toiletries
  • Big soaking tubs are nestled next to a window with partial city views
  • Flat-screen TVs, stocked mini-fridges, and coffeemakers in rooms
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Rooftop restaurant/bar has outdoor space with outstanding city views
  • Great location in the action and nightlife of Lan Kwai Fong

Cons

  • Lots of noise from surrounding nightclubs, even on high floors
  • Fitness center is new but very small, with just a handful of machines
  • Not much in the way of amenities

Bottom Line

Hotel LKF is in Lan Kwai Fong, a lively area of Hong Kong that's bustling with bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and shops. This 95-room luxury boutique hotel is part of the Rhombus brand, and lives up to chain's reputation for modern, edgy decor. The stylish rooms are spacious by Hong Kong standards, and feature flat-screen TVs, DVD players, large comfy beds, and bright-colored espresso machines. And the bathrooms are big and modern, with great soaking tubs nestled by a window with partial city views. Since it's a small boutique hotel, the amenities aren't plentiful -- just a small fitness center and a rooftop lounge/restaurant. But the views from the roof (where breakfast takes place) are amazing. Besides, most guests don't come here to stay in the hotel but for the action-packed neighborhood. That said, the neighborhood can be noisy at night, which the many business travelers who stay here might not appreciate.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Lan Kwai Fong neighborhood -- Hong Kong's happening nightlife area

Hotel LKF by Rhombus is in the heart of the city's hip and vibrant Lan Kwai Fong neighborhood. The area is known for its nightlife, and there are many nightclubs around -- in fact there is one right across the street from the hotel. Families and business travelers might not appreciate the late-night noise, though the area is also home to many great restaurants, shopping, and a mall.

Trekking through Hong Kong is truly a feast for the senses. Much like Times Square and the blinking neon lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Hong Kong could at first be a sensory overload, but areas outside the statuesque skyscrapers showcase the true charm and beauty of the city.

After exploring the city's tightly packed streets and navigating the ever-present stream of traffic, one great place to escape is The Peak, Hong Kong's most popular attraction. Visitors arrive at The Peak via the Peak Tram, which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city. Once at the top, The Peak Tower offers shopping and dining, and The Sky Gallery displays artwork by local Hong Kong artists.

Another way to take in the sights of Hong Kong is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, 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 Harbour'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. 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. Should shopping or sightseeing become tiresome, Hong Kong has several beaches for quiet relaxation outside the city.

  • 43-minute drive to Hong Kong International Airport
  • 1- to 3-minute walk to the nearest bus stops
  • 1- to 5-minute walk to dozens of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs
  • 5-minute walk to Central Station subway line
  • 6-minute walk to Honk Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens
  • 10-minute walk to Hong Kong Station subway line
  • 12-minute walk to Star Ferry Pier
  • 10-minute drive to West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
  • 13-minute drive to Victoria Park
  • 18-minute drive to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
  • 20-minute drive to Victoria Harbour and Avenue of the Stars
  • 20-minute drive to Ocean Park Theme Park
  • 20-minute drive to Expo Promenade
  • 30-minute drive to The Peak and the Peak Tram
  • 30-minute drive to Hong Kong Disneyland
  • 40-minute drive to Lantau Island
