Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lkf By Rhombus Hong Kong
Spacious rooms, slightly tacky vibe
Whilst my apartment was recently being renovated I stayed at three HK hotels - here, The Landmark Mandarin, and The Four Seasons.
The reception staff were friendly and efficient, and the rooms were spacious and well equipped - similar in style to the Landmark Mandarin.
The only downside is the tacky [---] vibe of the Azure complex of bars and restaurants, although I accept that this is a matter of taste and that many will like it. Overall, a good hotel.
Unkonventionelles Design-Hotel mit vielen außergewöhnlichen Annehmlichkeiten (vom ipod-Anschluss über den DVD-Player bis zur Espressomaschine auf dem Zimmer). Überdurchschnittlicher Service in toller Lage mit atemberaubender Aussicht.
Location location, shopping and nightlife
Spent 4 nights over Easter at this hotel. Whilst entrance is a little underwhelming, once inside the hotel is full of delights. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Stayed in the larger 650sq room, lots of space to spread out. The most comfortable bed and feather duvet and pillows made for a good nights sleep. Spacious bathroom, Bvalgari toiletries which were a great luxury. The turndown service was always happy to provide extra toiletries which was good. Decor is modern and hip, coffee machine in the room was great. Breakfast was included and was a good spread. Can highly recommend the restaurant on L29 for great food and views. Downside is that the hotel is in the middle of a bar and entertainment district so there is some noise until about 3am.
Great location base for shopping, 5 mins to Landmark and Pedder Building and Central station for other locations.
I would stay here again. Stayed with girlfriend for shopping trip.
LKF well done
My Wife and I recently stayed at the LKF hotel in Hong Kong.
We were visiting friends and after our stay with them we had decided to spend a few nights at the LKF.. It was the Rugby sevens
weekend, which we hadn't factored in so the area was crazy busy.
But the staff and LKF ensures our stay was great. Good attention to detail, nice sized rooms and well appointed.. I recommend the hotel
Chic hotel, excellent service & location
Excellent location, decor and service. Great food and convenience within walking distance from the hotel. Azure on the top floor is quite a treat. Try it before it's 'discovered' and starts to get crowded. The only drawback is the design of the washroom. There aren't any showers and no shower curtain for the bathtube. Doesn't make much sense.
Great boutique hotel-LKF
We stayed at the LKF hotel in Hong Kong over Christmas for a total of 7 days and had a truly wonderful experience. The hotel well deserves the 4-5 star rating! the rooms are large, the beds/pillows oversized, the views are terrific especially with the complimentary continental breakfast and cocktails on the 29th floor. Staff was most helpful and considerate and remembered our names all the time. Particularly great was the location...close to everything, walking distance to shopping, ferries, the old and the new areas and the zoo and botanical gardens. It is a "hip" boutique hotel and wonderfully modern and contemporary.
Best value in Hong Kong!!
Wow, what a find! I lived in Hong Kong for a long time and had to return recently for business. I was so thrilled to find this hotel!
The reviewer below who queries the size of these rooms has clearly not stayed in a Hong Kong hotel before! I have stayed in approximately 6-7 hotels in the past 5 years (on multiple occasions), all 5 star and the only comparable room size in another hotel is the new, and very expensive Landmark Mandarin. LKF by Rhombus provides nearly everything of the Landmark Mandarin for only half the price! Similar size, very contemporary finishes, exceptional (and i mean it!) service and concierge, unbeatable location, great toileteries etc etc.
My only issues are that there is no driveway on Wyndham Street which means there's not a constant supply of taxis. However, this is still probably one of the easiest spots in HK to get a taxi, so that shouldn't be a deterrent. I'd suggest having a permanent concierge desk and person standing on the footpath to aid passengers alighting and hailing taxis.
Yes, the internet connection is overpriced, and I had a slight issue with water leakage from the shower. BUT! The service and standard of this hotel is so good (it really is five star) there is no way I'd switch back to Landmark Mandarin for this price!! In fact Landmark Mandarin, Mandarin and Conrad staff now seem downright surly on reflection!
Contemporary chic right in the heart of LanKwaiFung
Exceeded expectations! Look forward to an in-room DVD player, large-screen LCD tv, espresso machine, and Bulgari toiletries. Very spacious room, especially by HongKong standards. No gym though. Excellent location, great service.
Lovely boutique hotel in heart of LKF
We stayed here two nights on a stopover in Hong Kong on the way to Australia. Overall experience was great - hotel was still in "soft" opening period but almost all the floors were open.
Check-in was done in room and pretty slick. We got a corner room on the 12th floor facing LKF. Room had plenty of closet space and a small entry lobby, and was decorated in light oak and browns. Overall effect was stylish.No views to speak of but plenty of natural light, lovely comfortable bed and huge flat panel TV. Although we were there on holiday there was a reasonably sized desk and it would have been OK for a business trip.
Bathrooms are large with good toiletries and a full tub plus separate wetroom style shower. Only gripe would be the shower - there was a full "watering can" head in the ceiling but it didn't work, leaving a slightly low attachment to provide the water. Pressure was good but door to wetroom didn't close fully leaving a risk of flooding the bathroom.
Rooms have plenty of amenties including DVD/CD player (with speakers in bathroom) and lavazza coffee machines - though they only give you two coffee pods a day and you can't even buy more.
Hotel also has a very stylish bar (complete with separate smoking room if you like that kind of thing and a pool table). Stairs lead up to the amazing top floor restaurant. We didn't eat there but friends did two weeks previously and spoke well of the food. There's even an outdoor patio area - nice. Bar and restaurant were v quiet when we visited but staff were friendly and keen to show us around.
As for location, it's hard to fault. Ten minutes walk from the Central business district and literally above LKF with all of the bars and restaurants there. Which leads me to my last criticism - even at 3am when we went to bed on Saturday night you could still make out the streetnoise (especially loud music) in the room. Might be less of a problem at the rear, but worth bearing in mind. Fellow guests mostly seemed to be media type business people plus a few tourists. If it wasn't for the noise risk though I'd definitely consider staying here next time I'm in HK on either business or pleasure. If I could guarantee a room at the back I'd definitely stay there - far better than hotels in Causeway Bay or Wanchai I've stayed at, much better value than most other Central hotels (at least at rate we had) and a far superior location to TST (at least in my book).
Nice hotel in a sensational location
LKF by Rhombus is a very nice hotel situated right on top of Lan Kwai Fong on Hong Kong Island.
The rooms, while billed as well above-average size, aren't. That's probably the only real blot as the overall experience is excellent. We stayed in a 500 sq ft (50 sq m) room on one of the lower levels.
The in-room check-in, of which much is made, is kind of awkward. They take you up to the room, sit you down and get you to sign everything. Much easier to do it at the front desk.
While not especially large (but larger than the average Hong Kong hotel room by a few square feet), the rooms are very nicely put together, with large 42" plasma screens, DVD player and an amplifier you can plug your iPod or computer into to pipe sound into the in-room speakers.
The bathrooms take up a huge chunk of the room's footprint which is why we say the rooms really aren't that big. The shower head is way too low for anyone over five feet but the bath is wonderfully large and perfect after a day's touring or business-doing. Oddly, the huge windows in the bathroom are ruined by frosting on the windows so you can't turn the lights off at night and enjoy the view. Deeply strange.
Other nice bits are a proper-sized safe with a top-opening aperture rather than those under-sized microwave oven-type safes found in many hotels. The restaurant on the 29th floor, Azure, is very pleasant indeed and serves a nice a la carte breakfast but a limited buffet. Again, the huge windows are ruined by frosting which reaches from the floor to about 5 feet. Insane.
The staff are very professional but could know a little bit more about Hong Kong's tourism points, like the 8pm light show on Victoria Harbour. Everyone just looked at each other and shrugged when we asked if you could watch it from an organised cruise. Other than that they are brilliantly accommodating and more than a match for many of the 5-star hotels we've stayed in.
The internet access is the usual rip-off at HKD150/day but many packages appear to include that.
LKF's strongest suit, however, is its location. It's on Wyndham Street in Central, above Lan Kwai Fong and very near the beginning of Hollywood Road, SOHO and the huge range of restaurants and shops that cling to the path of the mid-level escalators. A lift at the rear of the building spits you straight out into Lan Kwai Fong which has to be the least obnoxious expat haunt in the world.
We loved LKF and will readily return but will save our pennies for the larger room, the 625sq m on a higher floor. The only thing we could ask for is a pool.

Well lazy day, very dull this morning. Packed had breakfast and out final coffee before we have one last walk around the block and head for the airport! Been a great trip, interesting place, if you don't like crowds is not the place to come. There are beaches on the other side of the island do maybe a bit more relaxed there! Oh forgot to mention a bunch of locals/tourists - ...
... I took the tram up to the peak .. WOW what a view! I stood amongst lots of other people (slightly too many) to watch Hong Kong from above come to life with flashing lights , a breathtaking view! (See pictures they speak more then words)
After another long long day I took the tram back to the hostel and just spent the last few ...
... the way to the ferry terminal on day 2, which in itself took about an hour longer than expected because of the diversions around various building sites. Refusing to be beaten, I was glad to have persevered as the view of HK Island from the Kowloon side is truly stunning. Plus it turns out I'd made the right decision about visiting the Peak the day before as I couldn't even see it through the clouds for most of the day. Actually, I might be exaggerating ...
... and a half. There were so many people, it was actually over whelming. * I am sitting on the train writing this and the guy sitting across from me has a umbrella with a handle that looks like a samurai sword... I'm a little jealous right now :) Naturally, I tried as many different things as I could. I had veggie spring rolls, octopus on a stick, fish balls, roasted sweat ham, bamboo noodles, random fruit, assorted Dutch cheese, I also tried a number of different teas and mango ...

So we continued walking, till we found some and then we had to fight for them. I am pretty stubborn and we got one! The gentleman in the hotel who gave us the map and suggestions was very impressed with our efforts!! Oh and it helped to have the hotel card as the taxi drivers didn't speak English. Next day (Wednesday), it is blowing a ...
