Winner of the Best Service Hotel award at the China Hotel Forum 2010-2011, and the Best Boutique Hotels in China at the China Hotel Forum 2008-2009, the micro-luxury 82-room Hotel Bonaparte by Rhombus is conveniently situated between Causeway Bay and Wanchai in Hong Kong.
Just around 6 minutes walking distance away from Causeway Bay MTR station and around 6 minutes walking distance to the much-loved Times Square shopping and entertainment complex, Hotel Bonaparte by Rhombus sits amid a vast collection of boutiques, open-air fish markets, office blocks, souvenir shops, restaurant and a myriad of bars and clubs.
Each of the 82 guestrooms is designed to let the guest breath an air of cosiness, comfort, and upmost care when they are residing here. There are 51 rooms specifically catered for the business traveller while 25 rooms are classed as premium type, which offer more space and extra amenities such as designer branded toiletries.
Though there are no phones in the rooms, but every guest can borrow a mobile phone and take it with them anywhere in the city during their stay. Of course, the guest is responsible for the bills, but the flexibility and accessibility of using the mobile phone anywhere is very convenient because guests can use the phone anywhere. This is an innovative and cost-effective process by Hotel Bonaparte that the guests prefer and is not implemented by many hotels around the world.
Other world-class facilities include a self-service laundry service, foreign exchange service, complimentary use of the iphone and a boardroom which offers state-of-the-art meetings facilities and personalised business and concierge services. The ‘A Café x Lounge’ on the ground floor located right next to the front entrance is the ideal place to enjoy a homemade freshly brewed ‘Movenpick coffee’ along with some scrumptious cakes and pastries. You have to love that ‘R’ sign made onto the coffee lather to signify the ‘Rhombus’ signature. Just need a bit of chocolate dust to decorate it and off you go to enjoy your cuppa! Guests can simply press the ‘V Care’ button on their in-room telephone (or mobile phone that is provided at Hotel Bonaparte) to secure their seats in advance. It’s another innovative idea that makes the Hotel Bonaparte by Rhombus stick out from the rest in the market.
‘A Café x Lounge’ also offers complimentary internet facilities for guests as well as customers that purchase anything from the counter. Wireless facilities are also available.
So, is it the location, the delicious food at the restaurant or the free mobile phones that make Hotel Bonaparte an absolute corker of a hotel to stay at?

The NAVJOT-SINGH.COM web blog is separate to this web site....Click blog, which may
not be visible in some
countries due to local
so in those cases this
weblog may be read. The weblog also includes some of my press trip reports- most of which are not published on the official blog because of copyright issues.

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
