Warm And Cozy At Mini Hotel Hong Kong


This post is long over due because it happened last Christmas of 2012. Pardon for posting this just now since I've been extremely busy since the start of the year :). But, now that I have free time, I'M BACK AGAIN! and as I write this post, I can't help but miss the feeling of cold, warm, and cozy Christmas travel escapade with my dear family at Hong Kong.

This is the first time my family and I spent Christmas abroad. It is actually the most bonggacious gift from our Dad because he wanted us girls in the family (mom, sister, and sister-in-law) to experience "White Christmas". He booked our flight using his credit card miles and prepared everything for an all expense paid adventure! Isn't he such a sweetie?

My dad booked us in a small boutique hotel called Mini Hotel at the heart of Hong Kong's shopping district in Causeway Bay. 

To get there is so easy breezy! 

Here's the address: 8 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Direction: From Hong Kong International Airport, take the airport express for HKD 62.50 each (group discount of 4 pax). Travel time from airport to the city is about 40 minutes and the train departs every 12 minutes therefore there's no need to rush and catch a train. The airport express operates between 5:50 am to 1:15 am daily.

Next, stop at Hong Kong Station then transfer and head to Causeway Bay Station. From there, follow the directions as shown below or click this link for more details.

Mini Hotel, Causeway Bay is relatively close to key locations such as the Lee Garden (1 min. walk), Hysan Place where the biggest Apple store is located (3 min. walk), and both Time Square and Sogo Department Store is just 4 min. away from the hotel. PRIME LOCATION CHECK!

We arrived at the hotel's best time of the year because the lobby was decorated in a cozy Christmas vibe up to the smallest detail. You sure would love to chill out here with your PJs paired with Christmas socks while sipping hot chocolate every night after touring Hong Kong's key tourist spots. You can also skip the foot or body massage and just bring your iPod and hot chocolate here for some relaxing "me" time.

I just love the interiors of this hotel. So cute despite the mismatch of furniture haha. The Christmas tree completed the mood which made me miss Christmas at home even more!
We stayed in a Family Room (2 double beds + 1 single bed) good for 4 people for around USD 203 per night or roughly PHP 8,641. My Dad booked the room via agoda.com website and got it with additional 30% off as an early bird promo--not bad at all eh?!
All white is the theme of the rooms here in Mini Hotel. Classic coziness for instant good night's sleep!
The bathroom is "mini" in size but definitely clean and has hot water in the shower--my only requirement when choosing an accommodation haha. It doesn't have a solid door and wall because it's only divided via a frosted sliding glass hence, you can actually see someone's silhouette while bathing or hear his/her poop splash after being bloated from dim sum and noodles hahaha gross! :)) but good thing we're all family in this room ;).
The hotel also provides VERY FAST room wifi and some communal computers at the lobby for those who doesn't have their gadgets with them.
Finally, an indicator that a hotel is worth your money if they provide Cable TV, mini ref and mini vault inside your room.
P.S. They offer airport pick up and/or drop off shuttle services. This van is good for 4 people including our luggages but unfortunately it's not free :( it costs HKD 800 per van one way. I suggest you inquire at the reception if you prefer traveling the less hassle way.
Mini Hotel, Causeway Bay is all about convenience, class, and everything nice! Try it yourself :) I tell you, it will be your home away from home.
