Billed as the ‘home of urban explorers’, Page Hotels’ Hong Kong property – Page148 – is located in between the Jordan and Tsim Sha Tsui MTR stations. For this lifestyle boutique hotel, architects took New York’s Flatiron Building as an inspiration to come up with a dark, sleek aluminium facade, paying tribute to the city’s modern skyscrapers and futuristic skyline.

All 197 rooms at Page148 feature floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Kowloon Cricket Club. The design brief here calls for a minimalist yet functional approach to cater to the needs of modern travellers. Six room types are available, from the standard two-person rooms to family rooms that can host up to four guests. Bathroom amenities are courtesy of Appelles Apothecary & Lab, an Australian cruelty-free, all-natural hair- and skincare label.

Like Page8, its sister property in London, Page148 takes a no-fuss approach to its facilities. The hotel’s lobby features communal tables and movable seats that acts as a space to both mingle or spend some quiet time with a laptop or book. On the same floor, you’ll also find Page Common, a cafe offering a selection of artisanal coffee and light meals.

The brand takes coffee very seriously, and each room features Page Common blend coffee drip-bags to ensure guests are well caffeinated. A 4G pocket Wi-Fi device is also included in selected room types, allowing guests to explore the bustling neighbourhood of Tsim Sha Tsui – and share updates in real time.
