A host of big names, headed by Terence Conran, shaped this hotel and the main reason to stay here is the innovative design.

The hotel is flooded with light and enjoys superb views from the 262 rooms, the harbour-facing rooftop pool and the gym with wraparound windows. You can’t miss Patrick Blanc’s giant vertical garden on the wall next to the lobby.

But no one should be frightened off by the designer credentials – this youthful, exuberant place will appeal as much to families as trendy couples.

Surrounding area

The hotel has amazing views and some of the main attractions of Kowloon are within walking distance, but the immediate Tsim Sha Tsui East district is a little run down, with its drab 1980s architecture and old-fashioned department stores. It can appear a little gritty, but it is perfectly safe.

Across the road is Hung Hom station, where the Cross Boundary train service runs to Shenzhen, making Hotel Icon perfectly placed for anyone looking to nip across the border for a shopping trip.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
