Hotel Jen

Guests can get a taste (and a whiff) of the neighborhood’s old-school dried seafood shops, while the chic eateries and bars of Soho and Lan Kwai Fong are still within walking distance.
ADDRESS
508 Queen’s Rd. West, Western,
 Hong Kong




The Location

Situated on the outskirts of Sheung Wan, this 280-room hotel—opened in March 2007—comfortably straddles old and new Hong Kong. Guests can get a taste (and a whiff) of the neighborhood’s old-school dried seafood shops, while the chic eateries and bars of Soho and Lan Kwai Fong are still within walking distance.



The Rooms

Pared-down, Scandinavian-inspired design—blond wood, clean lines, neutral tones—make the 24- to 26-square-meter standard rooms feel ample. Up-to-date amenities such as Wi-Fi and flat-screen TV’s enhance your stay. Suites are decidedly more generous at 50 square meters, though the bathtub is oddly placed at the foot of the bed. All five suites and some rooms offer terrific views of the Victoria Harbour.



Sore Spots
During the day, only guests staying in the Jen rooms and suites can use the hotel’s lounge, which serves complimentary cocktails, wine and snacks. Other guests are only allowed in after 8 p.m.

Trump Cards

The rooftop swimming pool overlooking the harbor is the perfect spot for unwinding, while the 24-hour gym with state-of-the-art equipment is an unexpected perk in a budget-minded property. The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle bus service to MTR stations, ferry terminals and the airport.
