Location, location, location - the Fleming's best asset is undoubtedly its location. Situated just seconds from the entertainment hotspots of Wanchai, around a 5/10 minutes walk to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and very close to the excellent underground system in Hong Kong - the MTR, the Fleming is in an ideal location for both business and leisure travellers.

The Fleming, joins a growing number of independent, small boutique hotels in Hong Kong, all of which aim to offer guests a more personalised home away from home feel, and service, when compared to the larger properties in the city. The Fleming offers travellers 66 comfortable rooms, a dedicated floor for ladies, complimentary gym membership (depending on rate) and a small restaurant.

The dedicated ladies floors of the hotel have been done so well, that they make the regular floors, by comparison, look just a little more bland than they have to. On these floors, it is not just the enhanced security, but the small things which make the difference. Women staying on these floors, can enjoy fresh apples available in the corridor, superior quality bathroom amenities (L'Occitaine), and a whole range of clever touches and room additions to make a female traveller's stay all that more enjoyable.

Rooms on all floors are cut into four different categories - Standard, Superior, Deluxe and Executive. Rooms feature all the latest technology such as plasma TV's, DVD players, in-room electronic safe, and chargeable high speed internet access. Deluxe and Executive rooms also come complete with a small kitchenette. The main difference between the rooms is the size, all are comfortably furnished and quiet. The hotel has even gone so far as to provide mattresses in its rooms with different firmness. When we stayed at the hotel, and asked about this, the hotel informed us that if a guest prefers a soft mattress, or perhaps a very (very) firm one, it is best to make that request before check-in.

Getting from the airport to the hotel is extremely easy, and should take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour depending on your mode of transport. Quick Tip: If you have taken the Airport Express from the airport and want to take the complimentary bus, rather than a taxi, then just use H2 and get off at the Novotel Century, or the stop before that, and from there it is a short walk. You might only want to do this, if you are a little familiar with Hong Kong already.

 Conclusion: Compared to other boutique hotels like the JIA, ice house, or JJ Hotel, the Fleming is, in our opinion, a little pricey for what you get, but still a quality hotel in a great location.

The hotel does frequently run special promotions with reasonable rates, which includes necessities, and what in our view should be complimentary in a "trendy" hotel anyway, like free broadband in the rooms etc, so always check what promotions are available.

Also do take note of our comment above about the mattresses, be sure to clarify what type of mattress you prefer prior to check-in. And check the light switches by the bed before you sleep, as the bedside clock has no light function, it is very easy to end-up turning on all the lights with the master switch as you fumble around trying to discover the time!
