Hotel Review: AKI M Gallery by Accor Hong Kong

Introduction

Nestled in the bustling Wan Chai Business District of Hong Kong, the Aki M Gallery by Accor is a hidden gem that seamlessly blends minimalist aesthetics with functionality. Inspired by the clean lines and simplicity of Muji design, this boutique hotel offers a serene oasis for business travelers and urban explorers alike.

The hotel is housed in a slim building and the lobby is on third floor. The concierge/porter is located on the ground floor.

Muji-Like Design and Cozy Rooms

As you step into the lobby, the soothing ambiance envelops you. The Muji-like design ethos is evident throughout the hotel, with neutral tones, uncluttered spaces, and thoughtful details. The Aki M Gallery embraces simplicity, allowing guests to unwind in an environment free from unnecessary distractions.

The rooms, while compact, mirror the reality of most Hong Kong accommodations. But don’t let the size fool you—these cozy spaces are thoughtfully designed. The functional layout maximizes every inch, providing a comfortable retreat after a day of meetings or sightseeing.

The day and night blackout curtains are electronically controlled. The hi-tech modern toilet bowl by Toto is a much appreciated addition to the contemporary room.

Business at the Heart of Wan Chai

For business travelers, the Aki M Gallery hits the mark. Situated in the heart of Wan Chai, it’s a stone’s throw away from major corporate offices and conference centers. Need to attend that early morning meeting? No problem. The hotel caters to your business needs, ensuring a seamless stay.

Convenient Location (with a Bit of a Walk)

While the hotel’s location is central, it’s essential to note that the Wan Chai MTR station is a fair bit of a walk away. If you’re comfortable with a leisurely stroll, you’ll appreciate the vibrant neighborhood and local eateries along the way. However, if you’re in a hurry, consider grabbing a taxi or using a rideshare app.

Cleanliness and Comfort

The Aki M Gallery takes cleanliness seriously. Spotless rooms and well-maintained facilities create a sense of calm. Whether you’re catching up on work or enjoying a cup of tea by the window, you’ll appreciate the attention to detail.

Harbor Views from the Tiny Gym

The hotel’s gym may be small, but it offers something extraordinary—the best view in town. As you work out on the treadmill or lift weights, the floor-to-ceiling windows reveal the stunning Victoria Harbour. It’s a rare treat to exercise with such a backdrop.

In Summary

  • Aki M Gallery by Accor combines Muji-inspired aesthetics with practicality.
  • Cozy rooms cater to business travelers and tourists.
  • Convenient location, albeit a walk from the Wan Chai MTR.
  • Impeccable cleanliness and attention to detail.
  • Tiny gym, big views.
