Elegant Kowloon escape with city-view rooms, a rooftop pool, and one of the world’s best Cantonese restaurants
In an urban center as tightly packed as Hong Kong, the Langham is a welcome hideaway, with elegant rooms in light colors and top-notch air conditioning to battle the city’s year-round heat. Even though the hotel has nearly 500 rooms, it never feels overcrowded—rather, the service is calm, prompt, and comes with lots of personalized attention (if you’ve already checked out but have a late flight, they’ll offer to let you take a shower). Rooms, while not enormous, are comfortable and come with thoughtful touches like adaptors to charge your devices. Don’t miss the T’ang Court experience—it’s one of the few Cantonese restaurants in the world to earn a Michelin star and it’s worth every penny. The Bostonian, meanwhile, is a quality seafood and grill spot with a craft beer bar (and a private champagne room if that’s more your scene).
In the Area
The abundance of shopping, eating, and entertainment offerings just steps from the hotel in the bustling Tsim Sha Tsui district might conspire to keep you on this (the Kowloon) side of the harbor. Victoria Harbor itself is just a two-minute walk; you can take ferries to Hong Kong Island from here. Or hop on the MTR (metro) at Tsim Sha Tsui station, just a few blocks away. The Hong Kong Space Museum is a treat for kids and adults: the planetarium has an Omnimax theater and shows documentaries, too (English audio-phones are provided). You can walk to Kowloon Park—a lifesaver if you’re traveling with children who need to expend a little energy—in less than ten minutes; it’s a verdant spot with an aviary, a lake, and a playground. For a beloved local treat, stroll north on Nathan Road to Yee Shun Milk Company, a small spot with fabulous dairy-based snacks (try the steamed milk with ginger or the steamed milk pudding).
