Hong Kong, China

The Pottinger offers the perfect location for exploring Hong Kong’s varied past alongside its vibrant present

A stunning mix of natural scenery and gleaming skyscrapers, Hong Kong offers visitors a true melting pot of delights. As one of the world’s foremost financial hubs, it holds obvious appeal for business travellers, but there’s history, culture and entertainment to enjoy too. Incorporating Chinese, British and indigenous cultures, Hong Kong’s unique blend of influences ensures that there’s always something new to discover.

Prime location
Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district, a pivotal hub of business, finance, shopping, dining, culture and entertainment, the Pottinger Hong Kong has welcomed countless visitors since it opened its doors in 2014. Despite its relative infancy, the hotel exudes a traditional atmosphere that befits its surroundings.

Conveniently situated just a five-minute walk away from the Central MTR station and 10 minutes from the airport express, the Pottinger allows guest to easily explore the nearby colonial architecture, art galleries, boutique shops and award-winning restaurants.

Pottinger Street, which dates from the 1850s, holds the distinction of being the city’s first stone slab street and today is home to both speciality street stalls and the head offices of top-level financial businesses.

The streets surrounding the hotel also give guests the opportunity to take in some of Hong Kong’s most famous landmarks, including City Hall, one of the most important cultural venues in the city, and the former Central Police Station, one of Hong Kong’s earliest western-influenced buildings.

Central may be the ultramodern epicentre of Hong Kong, but it’s an area that is also rich with history. For the business traveller with few moments to spare, it offers the perfect location for exploring Hong Kong’s varied past alongside its vibrant present.

Modernity meets heritage
An icon of timeless elegance, the Pottinger is able to combine old and new to create an experience that visitors won’t soon forget – much like the city itself. Named Asia’s Best City Boutique Hotel at the World Boutique Hotel Awards 2014 and recommended by Forbes Travel Guide, the Pottinger has 68 luxury guestrooms and suites, many of which boast bespoke décor that celebrates Hong Kong’s diverse cultural heritage.

The hotel’s interior also features an homage to acclaimed photographer Fan Ho, who spent many years capturing Hong Kong life with his beloved camera. In honour of the fact that Fan Ho called Central one of his favourite places, the Pottinger has incorporated his masterpieces into the hotel’s aesthetic, both inside guest’s rooms and in public spaces.

In between conducting business meetings and taking in the sights, the Pottinger provides its guests with a fine dining experience that rivals anything else to be found in the city. Adding a touch of the Mediterranean to the heart of the city, Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano specialises in modern Italian cuisine.

The restaurant’s signature dishes include grilled Mediterranean octopus with citrus salad. The fresh flavours to be found here only seem to be amplified by the elegant ambience and Old World charm of the Pottinger.

If guests are looking for something a little less formal, the Gradini Bar, adjacent to the dining room, provides an intimate hideaway from the hustle and bustle of central Hong Kong. Here, visitors can catch up with friends, meet business associates or simply enjoy a pre-dinner drink. In particular, the broad range of vintage wines, sourced from an exclusive winery, comes highly recommended.

Like Hong Kong itself, the Pottinger blends Chinese tradition and western influence to create something truly unique. With its fabulous location and luxurious rooms, it provides guests with the ideal base from which to discover the romance and spirit of the city.
