The Upper House, Hong Kong
Posted on

Finally, I got a chance to stay at the Upper House Hong Kong and see if it lives up to its reputation as being the chicest place to stay in Hong Kong.
Just a few days ago, Tilda Swinton was a guest.

My friends and I decided to make a quick trip to celebrate Patrice’s birthday, before sending off our friend Penny to her month-long trip to the US. This is what our room looked like

Studio 70 Harbour View

It has a couch that doubles as an extra bed and a desk with so many plugs for your chargers.
Plus huge windows with motorised curtains (if you can call it that)

Patrice checked out the minibar

Everything in the minibar is free and refillable, except for the wines

I may know some people who would take/consume all of these ­čÖé

Penny used the coffee maker

The bathroom is the most important place for me in any hotel, so here we go.
The bathroom is huge and separated in two parts. You go down this hallway

To the right is a small closet and dressing table where we parked our luggage.

Further down is this zen-like toilet

On the left side are the chuva-approved counter sinks

Right behind the lavatory is the bath area

There’s a huge bathtub with a view from the sinks (therefore, nobody used it)

And an open shower with a view from the left side

I’m not an exhibitionist, so I don’t really like open bathrooms. I also feel that the bathroom is too big and maze-like.
I prefer a simpler layout where you can jump from toilet to sink to shower and not have to walk all the way around.
I like space. At Upper House, there was not much space to spread the luggage.
Because of these, I still prefer the Four Seasons Hong Kong.

What I liked most about the Upper House was the beautiful lawn where we spent hours talking
It is currently under renovation, so I hope to take Jeroen there one day, if ever we do stay at the Upper House.

I like the luggage parking zone. Luggage in the sleeping area somewhat reminds one that the stay is temporary. At least, with luggage out of the way, it feels like home.
