This small, intimate hotel is near the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui and yet it's a world away, located on top of a hill in the shade of huge banyan trees, next to the Royal Observatory with its colonial building and greenery. Knutsford Terrace, an alley with trendy bars and restaurants, is just around the corner. Its lobby is quiet and subdued (quite a contrast to most Hong Kong hotels) and its staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms are mostly twins, fairly basic and small. Best are deluxe accommodations on higher floors (ask for one that faces the observatory), while the cheapest are very tiny economy rooms with a double bed (these are usually used by lone travelers but are available to two people if you insist). A kitchen is available for long-staying guests only. All told, this is a very civilized place, but be prepared for the uphill hike to the hotel.
