a new hotel in Hong Kong has opened for business. Taking its name from the Chinese character which symbolises the Confucian
ideal of love and goodwill towards people, Hotel Jen’s approach is to provide travellers with the essentials of a quality hotel room without the expensive extras. A clean and functional
room, a comfortable bed and a great shower are at the heart of the Hotel Jen experience.
“Hotel Jen brings an affordable, contemporary interpretation of traditional hospitality to Hong Kong. We created the rooms to be
comfortable, functional, and clean to give good value to our guests – the essence of what we feel travellers today are really looking for in
accommodation. A return to simplicity,” said general manager Gordon
Hotel Jen is located in the western district, just down the hill from Hong Kong University. The Western District still preserves the flavor of old
Hong Kong, yet is just 10 minutes from Hong Kong’s Central business district, the Airport Express and the city’s hottest nightlife centres of
Soho and Lan Kwai Fong.
The 280 room independent hotel offers standard rooms, Jen Rooms and Jen Suites, all fully equipped with LCD TV, cable TV, iPod/MP3
connector, wired and wireless broadband, personal voicemail service, in-room safe, hairdryers, and more. The signature Jen Rooms have
sleek wooden flooring and an innovative bathroom design that maximizes space while maintaining privacy. The Jen Rooms are located on
the top floors of the hotel and offer either harbour or mountain views.
The spacious Jen Suites offer affordable luxury with
harbour views. The one-bedroom suites feature living/dining room, fully
equipped kitchenette, separate dressing area, his and her sinks, separate shower stall and a deep soaking bath with harbour views. The 50
square metre rooms are perfect for a luxury getaway or for longer stays. Jen Rooms and Jen Suites include daily international buffet
breakfast and exclusive use of the Sky Lounge.
Food and beverage offerings
at the hotel include the Jen Café, Sky Lounge and Lobby Bar.
Jen Café is an all-day restaurant and lounge serving a menu of international and Asian fare. Long share tables create an informal ambience,
encouraging guests to interact, and open kitchens enhance the space with warmth and activity.
The Lobby Bar, located in the lobby level of the hotel, serves beverages, light and ready-to-go snacks. On the top floor with sweeping
harbour views, Sky Lounge provides an exclusive retreat for Jen Room and Jen Suite guests during the day that includes a nightly 6-8pm
complimentary wine and cocktail hour. Thereafter it is open to the public, and offers a place to relax and unwind with wine, cocktails and
snacks into the evening.
Recreational facilities include a 16-metre outdoor rooftop swimming pool overlooking the harbour, and 24-hour gym equipped with the
latest fitness machines.
The 96-square-metre Function Room is ideal for private meetings and small events, including banquets for up to 50 guests. It is complete
with a selection of the latest audio/visual facilities for meetings.
For the convenience of guests, Hotel Jen operates a regular shuttle bus throughout the day to Macau Ferry (Sheung Wan MTR), Central Star
