Hotel Overview


The Pottinger is located in central Hong Kong on a quirky street of the same name, also known as ‘Stone Slab Street’ for its distinctive ascent of cobblestone steps where street vendors sell all manner of costumes, props and masks – photographs of the street hang from the hotel’s walls.


The pastel-coloured murals of nightingales singing in cherry blossom trees in the beautifully-designed rooms and suites could not be more Chinese. They may have panoramic views of sky-scraping towers, but they are a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.


The Gradini restaurant, which serves up delicious Italian dishes, is as popular with the guests as it is with the locals, and also has a bar which has a lively atmosphere in the evenings.


The lounge is perfect for relaxing and indulging in afternoon tea after a busy day's sightseeing.


From the convenient location in central Hong Kong, you’ll have many of its attractions nearby. Explore the Maritime Museum by the waterfront where you can learn about the history of trade and shipping at the port and the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens where you can see different types of apes, birds and exotic plants.

As night falls, catch the 120-year-old Peak Tram all the way to Victoria Peak, where you can look down at the city, glittering in a technicolour of lights.
