The Pottinger Hong Kong offers 68 luxury guestrooms and suites, ranging from 23 square metres to 68 square metres. The Pottinger Suite and six cosy suites, named after the streets around the Central neighbourhood, feature a bespoke decor with a touch of oriental flavour and celebrates Hong Kong’s romantic rich heritage and reflects the wealth of its diverse culture. Room rate starts from HK$1,880.

Standing on the historic Pottinger Street, a Grade I historic place graded by Antiquities Advisory Board of Hong Kong, The Pottinger Hong Kong is just a 5 minutes’ walk from Central MTR Station. The Hotel makes an ideal starting point to explore the unique ‘firsts’ of Hong Kong. It embraces pioneering spirits; the art pieces and select decorative accessories in the hotel help interpret the history of Hong Kong and Central, they intrigue guests to venture out to search for the romance and the spirit of Hong Kong.

Legendary and world-acclaimed photographer, Fan Ho, a photographer and film director who spent decades with his most beloved camera since his early teen, captured the best lights and scenes of Hong Kong. Many of his images were taken in his most favourite place — Central, Hong Kong. These most treasurable frames have taken a new residence in the rooms and passageway of The Pottinger Hong Kong and invite every guest and visitor to experience some of the fondest memories of Hong Kong at their leisure. Mr. Ho, now 83, loves Central and his hometown Hong Kong and graces his first-ever collaboration in a hotel setting, The Pottinger Hong Kong.

With its diverse dining choices and a comforting ambience that highlights a sense of classic elegance, the hotel is set to elevate the guest experience to new heights. The refined atmosphere has been created under the consultancy of Australian interior designer Suzy Annetta, founder of Studio Annetta and a specialist in hospitality projects. Annetta is highly regarded for her use of colour and for interiors characterised by refined surfaces and beautiful materials. Realised from her highly developed artistic sense and holistic understanding of design, The Pottinger Hong Kong exudes the splendour of Hong Kong and offers guests an unforgettable stay in the heart of the city.

Riding on the success of Sino Group in developing and managing an award-winning, widely diversified portfolio, Sino Group of Hotels strives to expand its development in Hong Kong and regional gateway cities, and consistently delivers quality services and new additions to the portfolio. The launch of The Pottinger Hong Kong signifies a strategic phase of development in Sino Group of Hotels that will synergise positively and enhance promising and better results for Sino Group
