The Murray Hong Kong, A Niccolo Hotel

Hong Kong, China

The hotel

Making the 'Best Hotel in Hong Kong - Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2018, The Murray, Hong Kong isn’t just an historic landmark – it’s a star player on today’s hotel circuit. That’s partly because, when Foster & Partners transformed this conservation building into a contemporary city pad, they created some of Hong Kong’s biggest guest rooms, with most spanning more than 50m2. The private arrivals courtyard and afternoon teas in the Garden Lounge may seem a far cry from Central Hong Kong’s buzz, but the rooftop restaurant quickly reminds you The Murray’s within ten minutes of its business and leisure hubs.

Had a great six night stay at the Murray. The whole experience was perfect and made the whole trip to Hong Kong even better than expected. Will definitely come again and recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent central hotel.

That was an impressive afternoon tea experience. Not only surprised by the food and environment but also the professional service by Thomas’ team, especially Barry whose so nice and helpful. Pity that we cannot stay for long as there’s much reservations.

I've stayed twice at The Murray within a 2 month time frame. My first stay was so great, I decided to have my wedding night there a month later. Both times the experience was fantastic and comfortable and very enjoyable. They have great bathrooms with large stone tubs, great amenities by The Grown Alchemist, large beds and great intuitive design.… Read more
I've stayed twice at The Murray within a 2 month time frame. My first stay was so great, I decided to have my wedding night there a month later. Both times the experience was fantastic and comfortable and very enjoyable. They have great bathrooms with large stone tubs, great amenities by The Grown Alchemist, large beds and great intuitive design. Ive recommended quite a few people to stay there since and all have been very happy with the stay. Check out their rooftop bar for great drinks with a fantastic view of the city. Only slight downside is their room service is very expensive, way beyond normal 5 star property prices, but their spa is more affordable. Guess it all balances out! Would def stay there again.

We had 1 night in town and thought to try the Murray as it was one of the newest hotels in HK. It is not as centrally located ( IFC or Central station ) but good if you have to be around the Admiralty or Wan Chai areas. It used to be a government building and refurbished to a boutique hotel.

We had 1 night in town and thought to try the Murray as it was one of the newest hotels in HK. It is not as centrally located ( IFC or Central station ) but good if you have to be around the Admiralty or Wan Chai areas. It used to be a government building and refurbished to a boutique hotel. There is an indoor pool which is intimidating given there are 2 attendants there in a small space so I feel like I am being watched is if I so as much step into the pool. While the furnishings are modern and simple , the workmanship is not to standard. The electrical plugs were loose and trapped my travel charger to the point that my Japan made travel adaptor broke off with one end stuck in the plug ! The cupboard doors stick and cannot open or close smoothly. It was just a bother trying to fight with the doors everytime you need something with the cupboard. Housekeeping tried to fix the rollers but the problem came back the second day. Service recovery was great as the front desk tried to offer me a travel adaptor when I said mine was damaged. All in all, it’s an uneventful stay given good service and well trained staff. Read less
