I booked a bit late in the evening so when I arrived, I have to wait outside the locked gate for more than an hour, in the dark and rainy evening, but was glad that the personnel there heard me or else I might've slept outside.The personnel was good, the facilities were a bit good too, but the area ...
The view from room is awesome, the room was very clean. Room service is very apt and excellent. Only recommendation is to add more vegeterian option in the menu.
Nice Hotel connected to City Gate Mall. Clean rooms and good food at restaurants and bar
The price is relatively high, probably worthy of 0.7 of what I paid. The room is clean and the neighborhood is quite and safe. The manager was helpful to some extent in providing directions.
Great location for an overnight layover. Beautiful property and staff was very friendly and more than helpful.
I was trekking Lantau Trail over three days and it was the ideal respite before my final four stages to Mui Wo.

One of Hong Kong's most serene landmarks is the Buddhist Po Lin Monastery, which towers above Lantau Island's Ngong Ping plateau. Three mainland Chinese monks first founded Po Lin Monastery more than a century ago. The giant 34m Tian Tan Buddha which stands next to Po Lin Monastery, however, was not completed until 1993.
Some of Po Lin Monastery's main halls are Maitreya, Weituo, and Banruo. Other important halls are the Sutra Collection Hall and the Hall of Ti-tsang Bodhisattva, which contains a 1,000kg bronze bell and a 200kg Ti-tsang Bodhisattva statue. The highlights of the Great Hall of Treasure, otherwise known as Da Xiong Bao Dian, are the three bronze Buddha statues which depict his past, present, and future lives.
Po Lin Monastery visitors can also purchase handmade wooden bracelets close to the Tian Tan Buddha statue, eat at a vegetarian restaurant, or simply soak in the sounds of birds singing and the scent of flowers while meditating in a tranquil garden. Another neighbouring landmark, the Ngong Ping 360, includes the village of Ngong Ping as well as a gondola lift which travels between Ngong Ping and Tung Chung.
