Home Away From Home: J Plus Hotel By YOO

3 July 2015

After a recent round of visiting hotels in Macao and Hong Kong, instead of going home, we decided to stay at the J Plus Hotel by Yoo before we flew out of the country for a quick vacay. Top priorities when chosing a hotel included: 1) location, location, location, 2) plenty of food and restaurants nearby, 3) close to the office, but not too close to the hubub of Central / Soho, which can get tiring for us sometimes. We wanted a home away from home, and by-george we found it! 

Not too far from Lee Gardens 1 and 2 and walking distance from Hysan Place and Times Square - J Plus is great for visitors looking for the luxuries of a hotel, but the comforts of a home. Relaunched after a HK$10 million makeover, the rooms are adorned with refreshingly bright designs and artsy decor.  

Originally designed by celebrated designer Philippe Starck, the hotel holds 32 studios and 24 stylish, spacious [780 sqft] suites. Complimentary guest facilities included 24/7 personalised concierge services; an open pantry where in-house guests enjoy continental breakfast and refreshments throughout the day and complimentary wine in the evenings; a relaxing open-air terrace for socializing; meeting rooms and functions area; a gym; and a complimentary laundry facility - to do your own laundry. 

Great for business visitors or for our out-of-town friends, J Plus Hotel by YOO was comfortable and a great place to unwind after a long day in Hong Kong. 

A great value “Suite Deal” starts this Summer from HKD1,600++ per night, with the “Suite Gathering in YOO Style” package starts from HKD2,000++ per night.  Additional amenities included with your package include daily continental breakfast, afternoon cakes, and evening wine served in the lobby, free broadband WIFI connectivity throughout the hotel, and complimentary local calls.

Guests also receive complimentary HANDY smartphone devices as personal mobile phones during their stay - which includes unlimited IDD for assigned countries, local calls, and data.  Guests can also enjoy a wide range of treats such as Noble Isles bath amenity set, use of penthouse fitness room, the hotel’s DVD/CD library, use of self-laundry service, and access to the hottest member clubs. Both packages are available from 8 June through December 2015.
