From the bustling city to the quiet relaxing suburbs – what a stark difference! After leaving Kowloon, we headed to Cyberport where the Le Meridien Hotel is located, in the southern part of Hong Kong. It was an uphill journey, practically, through a long and winding road.
The Le Meridien Cyberport is close to Cyberport Conference and Exhibition Center, Victoria Peak Tower, and Madame Tussauds. Nearby are University of Hong Kong and Queen Mary Hospital. Due to its strategic location, Le Meridien Cyberport offers panoramic views of the greenery and Telegraph Bay.
We love the design of the hotel, from its lobby to its rooms and restaurants. The reception area is not very big but the sleek furniture, colours and design of the space are impressive. In fact, all around the lobby area, the modern and quirky forms and design are impressive.
Just a few steps from the reception, there’s the Umami Restaurant & Sushi Bar. You’ve just got to love the floor-to-ceiling glass windows on one end while the other end leads to an outdoor area with a beautiful pond filled with colourful kois, framed by a well-maintained garden.
Our room features clean stylish modern lines with lots of natural light flooding in from the tall windows. The blue and white theme is immediately restful to the eyes. It’s well equipped with modern technology – ipod docking station, 42-inch plasma tv and most importantly, high-speed internet connection in the room.
I really like the futuristic-looking flexible glass working table which can be rotated. The bathroom is all chrome and glass, very modernistic and spacious. Oh by the way, the blinds between the bedroom and bathroom are electronically controlled – really cool.
Breakfast at Prompt is an enjoyable affair. The spread includes a vast selection of western and Chinese items with lots of fresh fruits and juices. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide perfect views of the park outside and generally giving the restaurant a bright and cheery feel. The cool weather is totally conducive for al fresco dining.
Other dining choices in the hotel are Nam Fong where Cantonese specialties and Dim Sum are served. At Podium the wine bar offers a variety of celebrated cult wines by glass and tapas – a perfect place to unwind and chill out.

Just 2 km from Ocean Park, Le Meridien Cyberport may be a little off the usual beaten track for most leisure tourists, but its cozy and relaxing ambience certainly makes up for its location.
The hotel also runs its own shuttle service to Central (takes about 20 minutes) as well as to the IFC Mall and station where you can catch a train or a bus to go anywhere. There’s a bus stop next to the hotel where you can hop onto a public mini bus to go downtown. For those who want speed and comfort, a short taxi ride takes you to Causeway Bay, costing less than HKD100.
We’d definitely love to return here for a more leisurely stay to discover more of its designer nooks and crannies!
