A Room with a View / Hong Kong

hong kong sheung wan

The dense urban jungle known as Hong Kong can be very overwhelming, especially at first. The city’s streets are alive with every possible sound, sight and scent. When that inevitable culture shock strikes, it’s best to have an escape plan. My favorite escape in HK is a room with a view at 99 Bonham – one of my favorite hotels ever, located in the lively Sheung Wan neighborhood.

After a long day of exploring the vast metropolis below, the room at 99 Bonham was a sanctuary for me. High above the bustling streets of the city everything felt different, calm, safe. Every day I would slap my iPhone into the dock on the incredible speakers and listen to my favorite music on repeat, all the while peaking down at the city beneath or looking up into the clear blue skies.

With a view like this, spying on residents of the neighboring buildings is a fantastic pastime!

The rooms at 99 Bonham are not the largest, but every inch is utilized smartly and packed with a determinedly decadent luxury. It’s all about floor-to-ceiling windows, reflective surfaces, marble and chrome and mirrored doors.

It sort of feels like you’re inside a commercial for a trashy-classy Italian perfume, in the best possible way.
