COSMO HOTEL WANCHAI HONGKONG

For the many times I’ve been to Hongkong, this will be the second time I’ll be staying at the Wan Chai area.  The first time was through a recommendation by my sister when we stayed at the vicinity together with my siblings and parents.

The Wan Chai area and the Causeway Bay, two of the bustling city centers of Hongkong, are accessible when one stays at the Cosmo Hotel.  On this recent visit, it has served as a basecamp for a discovery of alleys serving authentic Chinese cuisine at the cheapest and reasonable cost.

With my luggage in tow and after minutes of walking in a series of concrete ascents and descents, we were able to locate Cosmo Hotel at ease, situated at a main road of Wan Chai.


The Rooms

After presentation of passports at the reception area, check-in process was done swiftly.  We were assigned to an Executive Room equipped with broadband internet connection and a number of amenities that caters to business needs.

A PEEK FROM THE WINDOW
One feature of the room that stands out apart from the simple interiors is the great vantage of Hongkong Island's skyscrapers as seen from the glass window.  In-room features are practical and useful to travelers and businessmen alike.

For pure relaxation, the 18-square meter room has a 20-inch flat-screen TV with satellite and local TV channels, a writing desk, tea and coffee maker and a mini-bar. (click for other room types and rates)

And what’s the most useful of all?  The complimentary use of smart phone with free 3G Internet and personal hotspot for multi-device connectivity, local calls and IDD calls to Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, UK and US.  The Philippines may not be included for the IDD calls but it doesn’t matter to me for as long we can have internet access on the whole duration of our stay in Hongkong.  But the same is actually available now on almost all hotels in Hongkong.  This is one thing which makes me love to visit Hongkong more often, as internet charges way back home can be kept on hold.

THE FREE USE OF SMART PHONE
As we settled at our rooms after check-in at the reception area, we were accompanied by one of the duty managers of the hotel who personally explained to us the amenities of the room.  In the course of his explanation, what was retained in me was the all-natural green amenities which includes the Tarocco skin care products, Jurlique essential oil, handpicked organic teabags and leafy houseplant available for reservation made via the hotel’s website and upon request.

THE PATIO INTERIORS
There is one area in the hotel which has become a rendezvous for the group.  Situated at the 5th floor known as the Breeze, there is free internet, coffee and fruits available to in-house guests.  The entire hotel is smoke-free except for this area.  Since I am not a coffee lover and I also don’t smoke, I just hang out with my travel buddies at the said area, avail of the free internet, and eat fruits and converse.

The gray wooden interiors of the patio emits a relaxing vibe as if one becomes closer to nature despite the skyscrapers that surround.  It becomes a haven within the urban zone of Hong Kong.

Shuttle Service

While in Hongkong, it helps a lot if your hotel offers a free shuttle service to your desired destination.  Cosmo Hotel offers bus routes to 16 destinations including free service to Causeway Bay (Causeway Bay Plaza 2), Wan Chai (HKCEC), Admiralty (Admiralty Center), Central (AEL Hong Kong Station), Quarry Bay (Taikoo Place and City Plaza) and Ocean Park (at a cost) and a lot more destinations.

For time constraints, we were not able to avail of the said shuttle service but this is one factor which guests should consider in the selection of hotels while at Hong Kong.

WHERE RESERVATIONS FOR SHUTTLE SERVICE IS MADE
The 4-star hotel has attentive and courteous on-duty managers, receptionists and utility personnel.  It is one of the strengths of the hotel which I hope should be sustained even by top management.

They respond to guests’ queries swiftly and helpful.  Our stay may be brief yet with the experience we have of staying at hotels, we can basically tell and answer the imposed repetitive questions we have within the group relative to a hotel’s strengths and weaknesses.
