Pentahotel Hong Kong, Kowloon boosts a whopping 695 guestrooms so it sits well outside of the definition of a 'boutique hotel.' But it's got a boutique hotel vibe and the rooms are nicely put together.
The hotel sits in the Kai Tak area of the fast-emerging Kowloon East. Being outside any of Hong Kong's centers, the surrounding area does not have much to offer because it's mainly commerce. However, it is only an 10 minute walk to Diamond Hill MTR Station and the hotel offers free shuttle bus services to nearby shopping.
Nearby you will find historic Kowloon Walled City Park, Lan Kwai Fong, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, Wong Tai Sin Temple and the popular Asian ethnic eateries of Kowloon City.
The Pentahotel's rooms are well-kitted out with iPod docks, LED TV with selected Cable TV channels, mini-fridges, safes, tea & coffeemakers and robes. Rainfall showers are featured in the shiny black-tiled bathrooms. Pentagrand Suites add large sitting areas with an additional TV. Room service is available and there is free hotel-wide WiFi.
The pentalounge is a unique area which incorporates the lobby, reception area, bar and cafe. This is the lively hub of the hotel with 230 seats anchored by eatstreet@pentalounge, which offers favourite local Hong Kong dishes and international cuisine, a pizza bar and all day drinks.
Guests can enjoy a game of pool, foosball or Wii in the two Games Rooms, surf the web in the Internet Corners, or enjoy the playlist at the pentafun Music Stations. There is also a seasonal outdoor pool and sundeck; and 24-hour gym with cardio and weight training equipment.Review updated January 24, 2017
