Though most of us probably only really know it’s pungent, heavily perfumed lobby as we pass between Lan Kwai Fong and Wyndham Street, Hotel LKF by Rhombus has announced it’s set to close on 1 July after 11 years of business. With an enviable location smack bang in Hong Kong’s party central, Hotel LKF was considered Hong Kong’s first boutique hotel. There’s been no word as yet on what will take over the space but, as usual, we suspect a rent hike is most likely the culprit behind yet another high profile closure.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though. As a special farewell deal, the hotel is offering the Last Night Viva package which includes breakfast and happy hour drinks for two at Azure bar and restaurant, as well as a free mini-bar and bathrobe for $1,888. The one-night package is available on 28, 29 or 30 June in the hotel’s G500 superior rooms, which come with a king-sized bed, free WiFi, a smartphone (with free internet, local and international calls to selected countries), an Illy coffee machine and 24-hour access to the fitness centre.
