Le Meridien Cyberport
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
As Trey departs for Bangkok I head for Hong Kong and a morning flight, tomorrow, to Sydney, Australia. An upgrade on the flight is welcome, not only for the comfier seat but also the opportunity to sample the lunch of fish in sweet chilli sauce…a winning combination whatever the situation.
In Hong Kong I depart from tradition and …
After arriving at our hotel on the fringes of Hong Kong (Le Meridien in Cyberport), we dropped off our bags early in the morning and headed to Victoria Peak, the tallest peak in Hong Kong. The peak has been the place to live ever since the British arrived, perhaps because it is unbearably hot in Hong Kong and at the peak, you will find yourself at …
Well Sorry its taken so long to post our photos but we've decided to update our travelogue once we finish a section of our trip and unfortunately we are now finishing up in China. We arrived on the 3rd of September and checked into the Le Meridien Cyberport. It was amazing-especially after 7 weeks in a tent! We spent the next 5 days relaxing by the …
... they brought the usual slices and then when we thought we'd finished they brought the rest - a whole 1/2 a duck - bits and everything - Darren and I nearly fainted!! and Harry wanted to go to sleep in the restaurant.....needless to say it was the fastest disastrous asian meal we've ever eaten! A bit more misdirection and we finally made it back to the hotel only to find we'd left the key in the room! Now it's time to sleep as I'm typing everyone around me is fast asleep.....Lxo
What a great city Hong Kong is! You do not need a visa for HK for up to 7 days although the Internet says 108? From the airport there are a few options of transport to get to HK centre. We got the express underground as we arrived late at night and didn't want to mess around, this took 25mins to get the HK Island central station. Taxis are convenient and cheap for short distances, the meter starts at $20, if you put bags in the boot they will add ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Cyberport Hong Kong
I ended up staying here after my reservation in Kowloon got hosed up. Really nice place, very cool. Good and bad is that it's not central to any tourist-oriented spots, but at the end of a long business trip that is just what I needed. Very cool spot.
Ok, if you, like me, arrive in Hong Kong with an idea that the place is bustling, smog filled, raucous...then maybe Le Meridien Cyberport is going to startle you a bit.
If you want something that is ultra-modern, quiet and has beautiful ocean views then this is perfect. If you want a hotel that is lively, with a fun atmosphere and central to everything then I recommend staying in Kowloon. I chose this hotel on the basis of its looks and decor and was not disappointed in that area. The only thing lacking was that the staff, although efficient, were robotic and did not smile much. There is nothing to do around the area (the shopping arcade across the road is still under construction), but there are free shuttle buses to the city every hour. If you get a good driver he will get you to Central in under 15 minutes. In summary it was a stunning hotel with gorgeous views of the South China Sea, but if you're looking for somewhere with excitement and atmosphere this is NOT the place.
OK, so it may not have the colonial elegance of The Peninsula nor the old-world charm of The Mandarin Oriental, but the Le Meridien, Cyberport is a sleek and chic five star hotel with great service. It's stylish and contemporary and the rooms are smart and comfortable. And I guess it's a few dollars less than most of its deluxe counterparts.
I love this hotel! Better then in the states.
I stayed at the cyborport for work. I was there 10 days, and I loved it. the people that work there are excellent. The bed is so comfortable and the SHOWER! oh my god that was the best part! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to go back to Hong Kong and stay here again... it is quiet and out of the way so there is a nice view to relax to at night and enjoy yourself.
We stayed here last September and I beleive the hotel had just opened. The rooms were very nice, so was the bedding. They had lovely large size Hermes soap in the bathroom. I think we were the first guests to use our particular room. The restaurant was very lovely, very nice food. The concierge was most helpful, it was our first visit to HK. He organized transport, a hair appointment and even organized flowers for our HK hosts.
I stayed at the Cyberport in Nov 04 and, after reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor, it was exactly as I expected - chic, stylish and the place to be seen!
I travel extensively for business. Without hesitation, the Cyberport is one of the most inspiring hotel spaces I have experienced. With its spare, sleek furniture; sculptural lighting; Asian-inspired color combinations and extensive views of the bay (ask for a front-facing corner room), this hotel provides a superb stay. A few service wrinkles, but the manager was keen to receive my input. Treat yourself!
Le Meridien Cyberport is the latest hip hotel in HK! Every detail is very impressive. We got a room facing west that has an unobstructed sea view. Inside our room, there was a huge plasma TV, wireless keyboard/mouse, complimentary internet connection, computer with DVD player and slots for different types of memory cards, cordless phones, and modern furniture.
This is the coolest hotel I've visited in Asia - it has two distinct personalities for day and night. Dring the day, clean white lines and the seaside setting make this an oasis of cool calmness, in the evening the sophisticated lighting effects make it an extremely sexy hotspot for the city's exclusive social set.
