Had breakfast at the hotels Western restaurant. Food available included; bacon and eggs, sausages, fruit salad and various cereals. Didn't bother taking the shuttle bus today so we walked 50 minutes in 32 degree heat down to Tsim Sha Tsui seafront walkway. Walked along the 'Avenue of Stars' where we had great views of the mainland. Saw the statue ...
... Leslie took a boat trip through the harbor area where not only floating restaurants are located but where the Tanka people still live on their boats in a floating village. The fishing industry is the biggest user of the harbor and I saw several boats coming back from their multi- week fishing trip. Soho is an area on Hong Kong island that is the entertainment zone with multiple forms of entertainment.-- bars, restaurants, ...
After a leisurely start to the day we head out on foot to take the Star Ferry to Central to then catch the ferry to Lantau Island. The hustle and bustle of the city streets was not our cup of tea, so we thought we'd head out of town. The Lantau ferry leaves from Pier 6 and we were urged on by an enthusiastic conductor to hurry so as not to miss the 12.00noon fast ferry. Tickets in hand, the Clarks ran to make the ferry and they pulled up the gangplank behind us. Once ...
... from the local Seven Eleven and then stand out with everyone who is already congregating on the streets outside the bars. As we are on a budget this seemed like a great idea to us and it was much better for our pockets.
We enjoyed Hong Kong as it was a taste of Asia with lots of home comforts thrown in. I think we could have easily have stayed here for longer but it was quite tough for our wallets! We would like to come back here and explore it some more.
... ugly as **** and who was like 12 years old when we got together matter now. He has put her first so much and I have never been first. So I just went into the bathroom and cried. I just cried so much in the shower. I wanted the hurt to just seep out of my skin and down the shower drain never to be seen again but it didn't. My heart is still broken. Troy asked me what was wrong and I told him ...

Excellent hotel right on the bay. Good food. I would stand on my balcony completely engrossed in awe of watching all the activity of the boats and commerce that goes on all night long.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong
Ein fantastisches Erlebnis
Habe 3 Nächte im Spa Corner Zimmer gewohnt. Es war modern, hatte tolle Vorhänge und ein super Bad. Der Service war fantastisch. Hatte den Transfer vom Flughafen gebucht und fand den sehr gut. Ein tolles Hotel. Leider hat man keinen Ausblick und ist in der Wahl des Essens sehr eingeschränkt. Hatten erst überlegt im Vier Jahreszeiten zu wohnen und waren froh, es nicht getan zu haben. Fitnessstudio und das Spa waren gut.
Habe mit meiner Familie für zwei Nächte über Weihnachten im Landmark gewohnt. Das war das perfekte Erlebnis. Wir wechselten vom Peninsula ins Landmark weil wir beide Hotels kennen lernen wollten, das Landmark hat gewonnen und wir werden fortan immer hier wohnen, wenn wir nach HK kommen. Der Service war viel besser als im unpersönlichen Peninsula, da uns hier jeder beim Namen nannte und uns genau kannte. Die Zimmer waren erstklassig. Wir hatten in zwei der L-650 Ecksuiten gewohnt und die waren einfach unglaublich. Die Bäder waren die Besten, die wir je in einem Hotelzimmer gesehen haben, genau wie die Technologie die beste war, die wir erlebt haben. Wir wurden am Tor empfangen und dann bequem, mit dem Golftrolley erst zur Gepäckstation und dann durch den Zoll gebracht. Die Lage ist einfach perfekt um das Zentrum zu erkunden. Die Angestellten sind unglaublich gut. Wir wollten Trinkgelder geben und man riet uns, das Geld lieber zu spenden, das war uns zuvor noch nie wiederfahren. Leider hat das Hotel keinen guten Ausblick auf den Hafen, allerdings wird diese Kleinigkeit durch alles andere wieder wettgemacht.
I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, its my second visit and the "teething" troubles that occurred did not occur this time.
Rooms are big, with plenty of technology.
Bathrooms are enormous, especially the bathtub, with top notch products, and everything that is required from Loofa right through to Razors.
Complimenry water was also provided, and always topped up even if I did not finish the previous bottle.
I stayed at the Landmark MO for 3 nights and wished I could have stayed longer. I had requested a L450 executive room with king bed but was upgraded to a L600, which had two queen beds. As several other reviewers have mentioned, the room and bathroom looked fantastic and the technology was advanced. The room was very well appointed and I appreciated that everything that might be needed was provided, this went from the obvious/normal (eg shampoo, shower gel, conditioner) to the not so obvious (iPod cable, post-it pad, tippex, nail file, shoe polish, deodorant, hairbrush etc.... List of items goes on and on).
A fantastic experience
Stayed four nights in the Spa Corner room. Room was modern, had splendid blinds and a great bathroom. The service was fantastic. Took the car transfer from the airport and liked that too. A great hotel. Only downside is the non-existent view and the limited dining options. Considered staying at the Four Seasons and was happy that we did not. Gym was good and the spa was very good.
When I was in Hong Kong 5 years ago, I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental and the Grand Hyatt. I enjoyed the Mandarin much better despite the fact the rooms really needed to be updated simply because the service was superb. So when my husband and I along with our 21 months old daughter decided to visit Hong Kong this time, I was excited to try out the new Landmark since the old Mandarin Oriental is currently undergoing a much needed renovation. We were very happy with our decison and enjoyed our stay there very much.
There was no line to check in, but the actual process involved an interminable session on the clerk's computer, presumably hunting for an available room although it was already 5 pm.
My family spent two nights at the Landmark over Christmas. The experience was perfect. We switched from the Peninsula to the Landmark because we wanted to see both hotels, and the Landmark is where we will stay when we return to HK. The service was much better than at the impersonal Peninsula because everyone at the Landmark knew us by name and knew our entire history (where we were from, what we liked, and where we were going after HK). The rooms were remarkable. We slept in two L-650 Corner Suites, and they were incredible. The bathrooms were the best of any room we have ever seen, and the technology was also the best in the world. The hotel greeted us at the gate and then whisked us, via golf cart, to baggage claim, where they helped with our lost luggage, and brought us through customs. The location is perfect for exploring Center City, and the staff is remarkable. We tried to tip the maitre'd, and he suggested that we donate the money to charity, which has never happened before. The one complaint would be that the hotel does not have a good harbor view, but, everything else more than makes up for this one small drawback.
Just returned from a six night stay with my wife in a L450 room at the Landmark MO. Happy to report both the hotel and the service were absolutely first class.
The Landmark Oriental sits in the heart of Central and a fashionable shopping area. Convenience to shops is unsurpassed as the buildings connect by interior walkways, the Landmark building also is home to a subway stop which can whisk you over to Kowloon and points beyond.
