Towering 42 stories over the Mong Kok district of the Kowloon Peninsula, the Cordis Hotel at Langham Place is one of the best options for adventurous travelers looking to experience the “real Hong Kong.” It’s surrounded by mazes of markets as well as authentic shops and restaurants that are popular with locals. But getting off the beaten path doesn’t mean foregoing luxury. The Cordis offers rooms with plush bedding and oversized windows as well as homey touches like soft carpeting.
The biggest draw of Cordis Hotel at Langham Place is its collection of 1,500 works of contemporary Chinese art, one of the largest hotel collections in the world, which guests can discover with the help of free iPod art tour cards. As a result, the hotel attracts an edgy crowd of young artists and professionals who mingle in the Garage Bar—a food truck and craft beer destination with Western-Asian fusion food and a selection of over 40 brews—late into the Kowloon night.
