The Langham Place Mongkok Revisited

Nearly nine months after my first stay, I found myself back at the Langham Place Mongkok (check out its blog).  While the rooms typify that of most Hong Kong hotels (read: small), through the expansive use of mirrors, windows (they wrap the entire one wall of your room), and glass (the bathroom and the bedroom are separated by a pane of clear glass), the rooms appear larger-than-life.

Amenities-wise, the rooms are as well-appointed as one might find in a five-star hotel, but the powerhouse of the room is a smart phone featuring an interactive menu which allows guests to do many things.  TV is a remote-controlled LCD.

Other facilities I especially appreciate are the well-equipped fitness center, which gives users added inspiration with its commanding view of the cityspace, and the adjoining Langham Place mall–a gargantuan shrine to capitalism which offers everything from gastronomic delights to fashion-forward streetwear to the latest blockbusters on the silver screen.
