With the booming hospitality industry of Hongkong, it is no wonder why each brand should project something unique and interesting- something that stays in one’s memory apart from the experience.

Penta Hotel Hongkong is one type of luxury hotel that borders into a boutique hostel vibe with the graffiti and installations that abound not to mention the artsy feel that one has to imbibe.

EVEN THE SHUTTLE BUS HAS CHARACTER
From K11 Art Mall, the World’s First Art Mall, a shuttle bus will pick up its guests at the basement.  And we were in time for the scheduled departure from the mall to the hotel.

We were greeted by a marketing executive as soon as we arrived at the Penta Hotel.  As gracious host, he led the group to the second floor of the hotel where reception area awaits and consequently, checking-in was done swiftly.

THE RECEPTION AREA
My Room

Once I opened the door to my assigned room, I was impressed of how each corner features an interesting concept.  It’s never dull and boring.  True to what the hotel claims, they have removed the old-fashioned hotel stereotypes in every single room and created a new standard blend of modernity and laid-back style.

MY ROOM
The space of the room was well-utilized and there is no feeling of being cramped for space.  Beside the restroom is the working station, which I was able to use all throughout my stay, even while the group converge at my room at night to drink and plan itinerary for the day.

The mini-bar is likewise complimentary and not to mention the free usage of handy phone for easy navigation and communication access within the city.  Truly, they know what convenience is during travels. (click here to check room types and rates)

I had a comfortable sleep at the hotel with the aid of the clean and thick bedsheets and soft mattress.  On the glass window of the room are foams laid, allowing us to comfortably peek at the beautifully-constructed skyscrapers of the city.

Mornings at Penta Hotel

Recently, I automatically wake up at around 7 in the morning even without any alarm clock.  That is my call-time of my everyday corporate life.  Despite waking up early, I have to take advantage of the comfort and just lay down in bed as I wait for my companions to wake up and we go down before the buffet breakfast ends at 10 in the morning.

In almost every day, we always arrive at the dining hall at around 9:30 in the morning.  In a matter of thirty minutes, we roam around the spacious restaurant where divisions have been made for Western and Asian cuisine.  Desserts where on the far end but definitely a good choice for breakfast, more of a brunch on our case.

The selection was good and the noodle section was always a constant go-to for the mornings at the hotel.  The noodle soup served was more of an Indonesian (bakso).  Bakso is a savory soup of noodles and meatballs garnished with bok choy, wontons and the like.  It’s indeed rich in flavor but ordering poses quite a challenge.  You have to get the good mood of the cook.  She communicates less with the diners and oftentimes deprives her smile, maybe that’s the way she concentrates.

Pentalounge

The reception area of the hotel is not what you expect of an ordinary hotel, which gives you a glimpse of what’s in store for the room interiors and the amenities.  They call it the pentastyle experience – where the contemporary rustic décor seamlessly blends with whimsical local culture references. 

The Pentalounge occupies the whole second floor of the hotel.  It combines the lobby, reception area, bar and café together.  The seating capacity is 230 and offers local Hongkong dishes and a variety of comfort foods.

The hotel also has an outdoor pool.  However, since it’s the start of the winter season, it has been closed.

Overall, we had a pleasant and memorable stay at Penta Hotel.  It was a stylish and comfortable stay worth every centavo.
