Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong: The Best of the Luxury Hotels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong attracts luxury travelers from all around the world. As such, the competition of hotels escalates every year. And each of these hotels hosts a certain type of clientele. If you are seeking the classiest establishment, look no further than the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

Reasons Why Travelers Do Not Stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

It takes a certain type of luxury traveler to truly appreciate the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. If you are not that traveler, these are the top 2 reasons frequently heard about from them: “It’s too quiet,” and “It’s for old people.”

This really translates to, “It’s too classy” and “It’s too expensive.”

Yes, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong is quiet because it retains its traditional and old school, high-class environment. Yes, the nightly rates are not cheap but it is often more affordable than the competing luxury hotels.

So, the reasons not to stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong are not for truly legitimate generalized reasons, but rather it is a matter of taste and personal preference as a traveler.
