Shenzhen was a stopover close to the China and Hong Kong border. We never really had anything planned for these few days (and there is not a lot happening in Shenzhen) so we took the opportunity to chill out and the hotel and wonder around the town.
We got up nice and early …
... bottle of water). We succumbed to a quick snack of dare I say it, Macca's - so we could make it back to watch the Light show. It's an impressive sight to see the buildings on the Island all lit up to co-ordinated music!
Finally, at 9pm we attempted a real dinner at another recommendation---Peking Garden....what a disaster!!! The waitress could not understand us - I asked for a 'spring roll' for H and got the asian equivalent of a fried bread roll - belch! We ordered Peking ...
... about the markets and kept ourselves indoors because the heavens opened and we were completely unprepared for it. Fortunately there was an interesting pub nearby with lots of money covering the wall. We also met up with Jez and Natani here and headed out to an Indian restaurant in the evening before getting involved in some serious drunken dancing whilst trying to avoid prostitutes ...
... were so sore that I couldn't take anymore. Myself and another agent made our way back to the train as fast as our swollen feet and ankles would take us. What a relief to get on that train and to be able to sit down.. even if we did accidentally take the train going the wrong way and having to back track. When we got to an intersection and had to switch trains, we ended up standing again as the train was so packed.. this was quite entertaining ...
... few buildings which allowed free public access to see the city views from the top floors. From there I walked up the street and took a tram to Victoria Peak for more city views. I was hoping to have enough time when I got back down to catch a boat from HK island to the Kowloon (mainland) side to catch the nightly light show put on by the city and the building owners. Apparently it started after the SARS outbreak ~13 years ago to lift people's spirits. As fast as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews J Plus Boutique Hotel Hong Kong
Small, but fine
We stayed at Jia 2 nights in November, and were very satisfied. OK, the rooms are really very small, if you compare with Hyatt or Shangri-la. But everything is very lovely, nice furniture, very clean. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The reastaurant Opia is superb! If you don't stay at the hotel, ypou should at least try the restaurant, but book in advance, it is always booked out. The bar is also very lovely. The only problem I had with this hotel, that might be an obstacle for my second stay at Jia, is the noise. Well, Hongkong is always noisy, and the Causeway Bay is really very crowded area, but still... Our room was on the 15th floor, but if you have just single glas window, you have 24-hour traffic noise directly in your room, so that was really not nice.
The hotel was fantastic. A previous reviewer mentioned a few things that any traveler should know abou it: the rooms are small, for instance. But most of the complaining in that review is uninformed and unreasonable. We stayed at Jia for 5 nights. I arrived before my fellow travelers and spent one night in one of the small rooms. Then we moved into the two-bedroom penthouse suite for the other four days. While the rooms are small, the penthouse suites are not small; they are quite large and were a great value. They could easily accomodate three adult friends (who don't want to sleep in the same bed), two couples or even three couples or a large family. There's a nice dining area, efficiency with great fridge; washer, dryer, work area with high-speed internet access. There are free sodas, waters and snacks in the lobby 24/7, and breakfast every morning that includes nice fruit, yogurt and pastries. The gym is a five-minute walk at most, and is large, has great equipment and great facilities. I would rather walk to use a gym like this than go to a small fitness center in a much larger hotel. Seeing the amazing collection of people who come to the gym was one of the most interesting things I did in Hong Kong. Also, with all respect to a previous commenter who did not think the location was great, I strongly disagree. If all you saw of Causeway Bay was the Times Square mall and the Sogo department store, I understand why somebody would not be impressed by the location of Jia. But there is a ton more in Causeway Bay, you just need to walk in the other directions. We loved staying there, in part because it's not as touristy as other places in Hong Kong, in part because of the great street and nightlife, and in part because you can get anywhere easily by walking to the subway stop, five minutes away. Finally, we were treated like royalty at Jia. The staff were fantastic, helpful, courteous and responsive. I can't say enough about them. If you are staying in Hong Kong more than two or three days, get one of the suites at Jia; you'll love it.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Jia Boutique hotel for two nights at the end of August while in Hong Kong just to check it out since all the travel magazines had been raving about it lately. We've stayed at a number of other Philippe Stark designed hotels around the world and let me just say, this one has got to be the least trendy and glamorous of them all - by a long shot.
Fantastic - Excellent
Stayed in this hotel at the beginning of October. Excellent location, excellent service - a must for everyone who doesn't like large hotels.
Like a Second Home
Causeway Bay, where the hotel is located, is edgy and not far from the center of town. Shopping in the area is not bad. Both restaurants in the hotel are highly rated, and the bar is cozy. The rooms are modern and very functional with kitchenettes. The California fitness club gym is only a 7 minute walk from the hotel. All in all, thanks to a hotel booking website called Tablet Hotels, we were able to book this hotel at a great rate and experience a new hip hotel we would have never known about.
Great serviced apartments in Hong Kong - stayed for extended business trip and it was made the trip much more pleasurable. The hotel feels very lux but young and trendy - much better than the usual run-of-the-mill business hotels.
Great restaurant, too!
Dont miss the Opia Restaurant at the Jia. Head Chef, a young Australian, Dane Clouston under the auspices of Teague Ezard from Melbourne does an a-m-a-z-i-n-g job. Soooooo talented. Dont miss it!
We found the JIA hotel whilst searching the internet and it has been a real find. Not only is the location superb; the staff are friendly, the rates are reasonable for Hong Kong and the quality of the rooms is fantastic.
We stumbled across JIA when we were researching boutique hotels in Hong Kong. It's relatively new, so it's not widely advertised on the web... But if you phone the hotel direct you're sure to get a good price. Particularly while it's still new and 'undiscovered'.
