Water from the public mains in Hong Kong complies with the World Health Organization’s Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality. Bottled water, if preferred, is widely available for purchase.


Hong Kong operates with 220 volt electricity. The hotel has electrical adaptors and transformers for those guests bringing 110 volt electrical appliances.



Hong Kong enjoys a subtropical climate with hot, humid summers, cool to mild winters, and a typhoon season that lasts from May to November. Hong Kong has an efficient typhoon warning system, and there is virtually no threat of danger if you stay indoors when typhoon signals go up. Flights, however, may be delayed or diverted.


Hong Kong is relatively small and dense, which makes public transport the best way to get around. The north side of Hong Kong Island and most of Kowloon are well connected by the MTR, Hong Kong’s clean and efficient rapid transit railway system, while the extensive bus system enables you to explore the south side of Hong Kong Island and the New Territories. The East Rail Line, which runs from Kowloon to the Chinese border at Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau, is a quick way to get to the New Territories.



Most hotels and restaurants add a 10% service charge. Additional tipping is voluntary. You may add 5%–10% more to the bill in restaurants and bars or tip HK$10–HK$20 to service staff if the service is exceptional.
