We did not have a big budget on our hotel stay in HK. It was getting depressing finding something decent within our budget. I was so thrilled when L’Hotel showed up in my search, because I went onto their official website and it was way beyond my budget. But I managed to snag a good deal on Agoda.
L’Hotel Island South is on Aberdeen, 香港仔。We were told (after we arrived) that the hotel is in an industrial district and if not because of the opening of the new MTR Line, people would wonder why we want to stay there.
It was super convenient to get around. 5 mins walk to Wong Chuk Hang MTR, 1 stop away from Ocean Park, 3-4 stops away to Central MTR (though you have to change line). Most importantly, lifts at the MTR so we need not carry the stroller up and down stairs. There were also some really atas restaurants nearby which we did not have time to check out (the outside). We were also told by the driver who drove us from Shenzhen To HK that the local neighborhood has lots of local products which we can get at a cheaper price compared to touristy places. I would have loved to explore if we had more time in HK. It was a 30 mins walk or 15 mins bus ride.
We got upgraded to high floor and hill view. So we have a lovely sight!! It looks like we’ve paid a lot for it but didn’t.
There was also a bathtub which Judah has fun playing in it twice. He also exclaimed to his papa “look papa, a real bathtub!!”
We would definitely come back to stay in L’Hotel next time we are in Hongkong and if we are still able to get a good deal! And explore more of the south side of Hongkong like the southern island and Kennedy town areas.
