Hong Kong life is restless and intense. The pace of the city never stops, and neither does the loud concert of buzzing people, voices of salesmen and speeding cars that echoes everywhere.

Detached from madding crowd that fills up the busy district of central and Wan Chai, The East Hotel is a temple of quietness. A minimalist waterfall facade welcomes you into airy entrance hall where glass walls and modern white surfaces immediately convey a visual sense of peace.

The spacious rooms exploits at maximum the natural light, with big windows that face the Hong Kong Harbor, unveiling its mysterious beauty when wrapped into the morning dusk and its futuristic appeal when the sun shines above.

The light and the essential architecture subtly connects the hotel with the external world, allowing guests to experience the city moods from serene distance. Despite Hong Kong’s dense urban environment, East Hotel preserves its attachment to nature by featuring a moderate use of materials  and sustainable designs.
