Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of Central, within walking distance to attractions, corporate offices and Central MTR station

The Mandarin Oriental is centrally located in the heart of Central, overlooking Victoria Harbour. Connaught Road is a busy thoroughfare lined with gleaming skyscrapers bordering the Hong Kong Park and The Peak to the north. The Central MTR station is a 3-minute walk away, and the bridges that cross over to Kowloon are just a short drive away.

The business and financial hub of the city, Central overlooks the water from the north shore of Hong Kong Island. Its skyline is defined by tall glass-and-steel buildings and has a modern look, but some buildings from the neighborhood's past as a former British colony and military port remain.

Many tourists stay in or visit Central; its mix of modern and historic is appealing, and there are plenty of sights to take in. Central is home not only to upscale shopping centers and top-notch restaurants, but it is also home to several beautiful parks and gardens. The Chater Garden features a zoo and a playground, popular among families, and Hong Kong Park is the site of the Museum of Tea, housed in a historic colonial building.

  • 42-minute drive (without traffic) to Hong Kong International Airport
  • 6-minute walk to Chater Garden
  • 5-minute walk to shops and restaurants
  • 6-minute walk to upscale shopping at IFC Mall
  • 10-minute walk to Hong Kong Park
  • 17-minute subway ride to Victoria Park
  • 4-minute drive to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, or 12 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to Hong Kong Stadium
  • 8-minute drive to Ocean Park Theme Park
  • 13-minute drive to Jade Market
  • 15-minute drive to the Hong Kong Museum of Art
  • 18-minute drive to The Peak
  • 19-minute drive to Tai Tam Country Park
  • 26-minute drive to Ma Wan Tung Wan Beach
  • 31-minute drive to Big Wave Bay Beach

 Bottom Line

The Mandarin Oriental is one of the top luxury hotels in Hong Kong, and a popular choice among well-heeled families and business travelers. It has 501 elegant rooms featuring contemporary Chinese decor, large windows with wonderful views, and gorgeous bathrooms with sleek glass-enclosed showers and bathtubs (except Study Rooms, which have walk-in showers only).
