We stayed at 99 Bonham this year March for our first wedding anniversary. Having informed the hotel during booking, we were welcomed with a clean room, a bottle of champagne and a greeting card from the team for our anniversary, so nice of them. We chose this hotel because we saw the room is catered with a big dining area. As we know Hong Kong is famous for nightlife and a variety of food available at any time, including supper. So the dining space made it easy for us to pack food back. The room is spacious, toilet is clean and nice. There are some food stalls below the hotel as well. Recommended.
I had a wonderful stay at 99 Bonham! The room was nicely decorated, spaceous and clean. You had your own little pentry with everything you need (including coffee, wine-glasses and bottled water), a large wardrobe, a nice "hang around corner" who seated min 4 people, a big and stylish bathroom and a very comfortable bed. When you get out on Bonham street you're in a great district with many nice restaurants just around the corner - as well as ATMs, 7-elevens, taxis etc. You feel so safe walking around there and you really get the Hong Kong-feeling by strolling the streets around Bonham. The best thing about 99 Bonham was the staff - super serviceminded, always there to help, very generous and flexible. I.e. I could come back to the hotel after checking out to lend the shower and changing room. Extra plus for the complimentary phone (I never used it but a very nice feature if you're a foreigner visiting Hong Kong), the JKL-speaker, the many power outlets (and that you could use USB-wires for charging) and that you could get complimentary bottled water, soft drinks and energybars. All in all - a great hotel which I highly reccomend!
The hotel staff are amazing! I miss the girls at the front desk every time I leave! The room was great and the view was the same! I have now stayed there twice on business and I don't think I will be staying anywhere other than the 99 on my next visit.
Well situated. I took airport express to Hong Kong station, then a cab which reached the hotel within 4mins. There are alot of nice restaurants at Hong Kong station. Hotel is beautiful and friendly receptionists.
Overall good choice for business trip. Location is convenient, like that there is a large table in the room to work. Reception handed out the adapter at check in without the need to ask them separately for it and there were friendly reminders from them as well to pick up an umbrella when it was going to rain. Gym facilities are slightly outdated though
"99 Bonham", 99 Bonham Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Early September, back again, our fifth time. This time of year in Hong Kong (late summer early autumn) is definitely not the best time to visit unless you enjoy your weather oppressively hot and humid ... has been mostly dry (as in no rain ... but plenty of humidity) so far. Back-street Shaun Wan, not exactly the "Mayfair" of Hong Kong but "interesting" and good location. 160m to nearest metro entrance 150m to ding dings (trams) stop. Plethora of interesting eateries within a few steps in any direction, convenience stores similar distance and full size supermarkets (City Super, Oliver's ... both excellent) not too far away. Many mini-markets, 711's etc in the area. Staff are generally keen to please and mostly have fairly good English. We had a standard unit. The units are arranged "three across" the building with the cheaper standard unit between the dearer 'Premier' and 'Deluxe' corner units. Standard units have a single "view face" toward Victoria Peak, corner units have a short "return" window at the left and right (respectively) of the living area. The premium corner units have a more extensive view of the various even higher accommodation and commercial tower blocks that preclude any 'real' view. Likes and dislikes. Suitcase racks/stands are a welcome (recent years) addition, saves aging backs and "parking" suitcases on the floor in the living (studio) area. Lighting switches remain a little difficult to master ... hints ... the top switch by the entry door and also by the bathroom entry is a master switch for all (except bedside lamps), the bottom switch by the bathroom is a 'hold down to alter' dimmer for the two ceiling lights (you so far haven't worked out how to turn on) overhead (near) the bed-head ... this does not 'fire up' once turned off/on with the master ... tap it briefly and it will turn on at the previous set intensity ... you'll get the hang of them ... maybe even before check out. Lighting is generally quite adequate except over the sink bench (which remains abysmal. Power points are "conventional" (ankle level) rather than "convenient" (above bedside tables). Adequate number supplied. No bedside USB power outlets. Bedside lights are "cantilever" style, three intensity, led units with proximity switch on top. Tap the top ... bright, medium, low, off. Housekeeping is generally very good with excellent cleanliness, daily 'room refresh' and weekly renew. Only one (minor) niggle ... one (some? ... we are always out when they 'do' the room) feel the need to 'reset' the room to 'new guest' settings every day ... so the air conditioning gets reset to a different temperature (too warm ... we don't live in HK, we like it a little cooler ... leave it alone), the bedside alarm clock gets repositioned so that the display faces the foot of the bed (it's for the occupant in the bed, I can't see the display when it faces the far end of the bed, leave it alone), the complimentary 'loaner' cellular phone (nice touch some years ago ... probably superfluous now) which sits in a charging cradle and wakes up from time to time at night, bathing the entire room in its glow (and which I remove from its charger and leave face down on the table) gets replaced in its cradle ... and wakes me/us again (I don't want to be woken by it ... leave it alone). Room refresh/tidy daily, towels as you require (leave on floor for renew, hang up for leave), bed linen weekly. The shower is a large "walk in" unit with rain head and hand held and excellent (Grohe) thermostatic control. The design is fairly conventional for a "walk in", all tiles, with a small "step down" into the shower tray area. Unfortunately the glass side screen and door have been positioned over the non sunken floor area (rather than draining directly into the shower tray area) necessitating an unfortunate number of side and bottom edge seal assemblies which do little to inhibit water from leaking down the closing edge of the door (in particular) and out onto the floor around the toilet pan and where your initially nice and dry, now saturated, bath mat awaits ... we purchased a pack of cheap kitchen bench absorbent wipes and placed one just outside the door ... worked fine (architects should be made to live in their badly thought through designs for at least six months). Good quality towels etc. Bed good, bed linen good. Kitchen glassware sufficient, crockery minimal ... couple of breakfast bowls and couple of large dinner plates. Sufficient cutlery. Nespresso machine (appreciated), small daily capsule "top up", Nespresso shop not too far away ... about 1.1km in IFC mall with "Ding Dings" available about 50% of distance if you're keen to conserve shoe leather. Laundry facilities. One washer, one dryer SOME floors ... we had facilities our floor, not sure of current situation, previously (on different floor) we've had to walk up/down one or two floors to find. No problem with access weekdays, weekends appear busier. Good quality machines (Siemans ... now ageing), work well, controls in English. Previous 'breakfast included' tariff (at nearby restaurant/s) appears to have been dropped. No loss, many better, cheap options within a short walk, or prep' your own, hot or cold (ask for a toaster if you would like one). Overall, suits our requirements very well. We had previously been "all hotel" tourists but over recent years have gravitated toward commercial/private apartments to the extent that now no conventional hotel accommodation remains. If this is the kind of money you generally spend on a 'nice' hotel, you are unlikely to be disappointed with this accommodation choice.
The hotel offer free drinks and quality essentials.good option to stay in the hotel for your trip in Hong Kong. The staffs provide excellent service and very helpful. The room is very tidy and spacious.
The 99 Bonham is in a rather dingy street and not easy to find, but once inside the doors, it is a sparkling, modern hotel. The lobby is a bit small, but the staff are quite courteous. On my floor, there were only 3 rooms, but for HK standards there were spacious--even a sitting room surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and pillow-topped benches. Everything in the room is as modern as it gets, and stylishly so. I chose the hotel mainly for its proximity to the ferry terminal. It's about a 5-10 minute walk, maybe 2/3 on covered walkways. Very convenient.
I can't remember if I did a review on 99 before but this now my second stay and I have opened a corp account! Value for money is very important to me and my firm and I often use Airbnb in HK due to high hotel prices and tiny rooms.....I guess the HK disturbances is causing prices to fall for the hotels so I found myself at 99 4 weeks ago and returned agian for another 5 days last week. Rooms are very good, decent size and well equipped, this trip my room didnt have all fo the glasses, crockery, cutlery, etc but all I had to do was ask and it was delivered. I also had a few friends over for roof top drinks an dno issue getting extra glasses. Staff are friendly and helpful. Next trip, I may try the Jervois - a sister property just one street up from 99. They have one bedder apartments and with my newly closed corp deal it comes with a few extras so I look forward to trying this property.
