Hong kong hotels prices were very expensive at the time I booked, apparently there was an international cosmetic conference in town. L'hotel Island South was the best deal I could find online. $110 usd for the cheapest room at the hotel. Not exactly cheap.. But a fair deal for a 4 star property.
Hotel opened in September, so everything was spanking new. Decor is chic, staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
L'hotel also provides complimentary shuttle service every half an hour to and from hong kong station... Which sounded fantastic on paper... Didn't work quite well realistically.
L'Hotel Island South is at Aberdeen, it's about 10 minutes drive to happy valley/ wan chai. Unless you take a taxi or you are very familiar with hk's mini bus / big bus routes and schedules.. It's not exactly conviently located. With that in mind, every soul at the hotel takes the shuttle. The shuttle only seats 16 guests and there is only one shuttle going and coming at a time.. So we ended up taking a taxi almost everyday.
Pool looked nice, gym looked decent, restaurant looked good .. I didn't use any of their facility.. I heard the restaurant is one of the finer ones at Aberdeen.
In all, if you don't mind spending a lil extra cash on taxi everyday.. This is most definitely a great hotel.
