Hullett House Hotel
Tsim Sha Tsui
Hong Kong is fond of demolishing its heritage buildings, so the transformation of the Victorian-era, 1881 marine police headquarters at the southern tip of the Kowloon peninsula into a hotel was a welcome development. Better still, Hullett House has been wittily and intelligently furnished with 10 suites and five restaurants to become something rather more than simply a boutique hotel.
Each of the spacious suites is individually named and decorated, but left uncluttered, with little more than a bed, wooden floorboards, a wall-mounted TV and (in some cases) a fireplace. Mainland Chinese visitors go into raptures over the Casam suite, which is hung with modern art, and the glistening white Silvermine. Westerners tend to prefer oriental styles: Shek O is a riot of crimson chinoiserie. All suites have a balcony with view of the harbour, garden or courtyard, a (laptop) safe, a free minibar and a mobile phone with free (international) calls, 3G data and wi-fi hotspot.
Across the central courtyard (named Fifty Pigeons), there are gourmet Cantonese and European restaurants, garden seating outside at Stables Grill, and the heady thrill of a pint in the former cells that are part of the Mariners' Rest pub.
