Sometimes being in the thick of things isn’t conducive to relaxation, especially in Hong Kong, a city that rarely sleeps and sometimes won’t let you either. The Olympian Hong Kong, a new 32-room hotel in West Kowloon, might offer an enviable solution. A stone’s throw from the shopping, restaurants, and museums of Tsim Sha Tsui, this tiny house of slumber boasts both the serenity of an on-the-cusp locale as well as breathtaking views across Victoria Harbour. Rooms ranging from 43 to 75 square meters offer a distinct residential feel, complete with gleaming hardwood floors, Egyptian linens, and kitchenettes. Despite its small stature, The Olympian boasts plenty of amenities; check-in is conducted in-room, the room service menu is laced with local favorites, and if the nearby Olympic MTR doesn’t take your fancy, the hotel also offers Rolls-Royce transfers anywhere in the city (opening rate from US$206 until the end of April).
