“When the Mandarin Oriental closed in 2006 for a total renovation, the Hong Kong stock exchange held a two-minute silence. Once reopened, brokers and businessmen flooded back to the Captain’s Bar on the classic sixties ground floor; their wives once more paraded their latest fashion buys in the Clipper Lounge and guests found the Mandarin’s legendary service unchanged but its new, panelled bedrooms (“rather like being inside a luxury cigar box”) hugely improved. Wonderful restaurants, a world famous barber’s shop, cake maker and rose petal jam: just some of the touches that single out this superb hotel.”

“Located overlooking the glittering Victoria Harbour, our hotel has been the centre of Hong Kong’s social and business scene since 1963. Following our recent redesign and through constant attention to detail, we offer the finest in 21st century luxury for travellers. Our reputation continues to endure with our legendary service.”
"There is something very Hong Kong about the Mandarin Oriental because of its history and its location in the fabric of the city."
