Bay Bridge Hotel Tsuen Wan Review
Tsuen Wan sits at the end of the eponymous MTR line, which can make it sound a bit far. In fact it is fairly easily accessible from the city centre as well as from the airport. This hotel has a good shuttle bus service to a couple of nearby MTR stations including one stop outside one of the Tsuen Wan station entrances. It’s best to check in advance exactly where the pick up points are as they are decently located but I did not find their location to be intuitive.
This hotel has a light and airy feel – it feels like a block of apartments converted. Indeed overall it feels more like serviced apartments than a pure hotel. Although it is on a road, on the other side it sits by the waterfront and has good views out over the water and all of its bustling activity. One of the main attractions of this hotel is that it is a little bit of a retreat – although it is in a busy area, looking out over the water can be very restful.
The ground floor has a central area where guests can hang out and read or work, as well as a decently sized gym and a restaurant.
My room was in fact a small suite. There was a bedroom, bathroom, fair sized lounge area and a kitchenette in the corner.
The lounge area was comfortable and practical, with a sofa as well as table area. The kitchenette had basic cooking facilities and utensils and you could certainly whip up a simple meal there.
The bed was very comfortable and provided an excellent night of sleep. The curtains don’t provide complete blackout but they are better than many in Hong Kong hotels.
The general décor of the room felt light and modern, but the bathroom was a contrast – it felt a bit more dated and like a lot of bathrooms in American hotels. I was happy that there was a bath as well as a shower. The complimentary toiletries were packaged in a pretty and funky design which helped bring the feeling of the bathroom slightly more in line with the airy, contemporary feeling which runs through the rest of the property.
I did not use the terrace, but outside the room in which I stayed there was a large terrace with a table and four chairs. On a cool day or evening that would be a lovely, relaxing place to sit.
Overall the property had an upbeat, energetic feeling and for those who want somewhere practical to do some work or holiday research on their computer or tablet, for example, it’s ideal.
