Hullett HouseResiding on the top floors of the former Marine Police Headquarters in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui district, the Hullett House hotel offers 10 whimsical suites—named for Hong Kong’s various bays—that each play on a different period of Hong Kong history and culture. Built in 1881, the property is a beauty of colonial arches and columns crowned by a red-tile roof; it’s one of the oldest buildings in Hong Kong. Each room was painstakingly restored and then updated with statement furnishings that reflect distinct times in Hong Kong’s history.
The Stanley Bay Suite is a tranquil sanctuary of turquoise, white, and gold, whose hand-painted songbirds, French windows, and old fireplace transport guests to the English countryside. The Deep Water Bay Suite is decorated with cheeky pop art pieces, from a white ceramic sculpture of a pig doing a handstand to a painting series of Chairman Mao blowing bubbles. The Ma Wan suite has a full Chinese temple erected over the bed!
The Hullett House’s higher price point means guests enjoy the butlers and shoe-shining services that recall the old days, alongside the minibars and turndown rituals that are expected today.
