Pick any top Hong Kong hotel and it will daze you with glitz and grandeur. Book a stay at a small boutique hotel and you may encounter innovative ideas and daring style. The Upper House combines the best of both.
With over a hundred rooms the Upper House is larger than a boutique hotel, but its interiors bet on confident, elegant minimalism, breaking away from the ubiquity of big hotels.
The architect Andre Fu used natural materials: stone, bamboo, glass Shoji—and slightly provocative sculptures—to create understated and sophisticated, yet dramatic spaces.
Style and Technology
The Upper House has all the attributes of modern Asian luxury. Each room is spacious, sporting a large bathroom with a freestanding bath, and with windows from floor to ceiling. These ensure wonderful views, either of the Hong Kong metropolis and Victoria Harbour, or towards the mountainous interior of the island. The clean edges and large surfaces seem to speak the same visual language as the brilliant, quasi-futuristic views.
At every turn, modern technology enriches the hotel experience. Airport shuttle is a BMW limousine (also in a fully-electric version), equipped with WiFi. The rooms, also with free WiFi, have automatic curtains and motion sensors, so the cleaning staff does not even have to knock to check if the guests are inside. Each room has other mod cons too. There are an in-room coffee maker, complimentary snack bar and luxury cosmetics.
