There’s no shortage of Tsim Sha Tsui hotels with luxurious butler-serviced rooms, celeb-chef-helmed restaurants, and extensive business facilities. Travelers who want some funk factor can consider one of the district’s best boutique hotels.
The Luxe Manor is a true sensory experience for the eyes. This upscale boutique hotel is designed to look like Salvador Dali's imagination -- and the result is certainly surreal, if a bit busy and over-the-top. The lobby is decorated in bold colors, there's a lip-shaped sofa in the bar, and the rooms have details such as busy animal-print carpets, and flat-screen TVs hanging in frames above faux fireplaces. The decor is quirky, to be sure, but might but it may not be to everyone's taste, and can have a sort of dizzying effect. The Luxe Manor is certainly a one-of-a-kind hotel, and has a convenient location in the popular tourist area Tsim Sha Tsui.
The 29-room Residence G Hong Kong is a hip, upper-middle-range hotel set in a relatively quiet corner of Kowloon's bustling Tsim Sha Tsui district. The vibe is smart and contemporary throughout, from its funky street-level cafe to third-floor lobby lounge and open-roof terrace. While standard Good Rooms are typically small, in-room tech includes wide-screen TVs, fast Wi-Fi, and handy smartphones with free Internet roaming. Space is a bit tight, but design is smart with large floor-to-ceiling windows and clean lines that provide a sense of space. While not the easiest location to find and lacking any on-site health facilities, it's certainly one of the coolest hotels around and tucked away from the nearby din and hubbub.
