The Upper House is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Boutique Hotels
Our favourite hotel in Hong Kong, The Upper House is a slick, sexy property with some of the best views from the Hong Kong island side. Interiors are the work of Chinese designed Andre Fu and the overall effect has a distinctly boutique minimalist feel – but with plenty of warmth and charm. Rooms are some of the largest in the city, starting at 70m2. The use of the best quality materials throughout has resulted in exquisite rooms and suites that feel more like ‘home’ than a hotel. Clever design maximises space and the bathrooms are all stunning. Homely touches such as complimentary mini bars, cosy seating areas and a library enforce the company’s ‘house’ philosophy. The top floor of the hotel is perhaps our favourite; the restaurant and bar make the most of the views with private corner tables and a room that feels constantly full of life with both in-house and local guests. The library or lounge has a relaxed spa like feel and offers guests the change to unwind in beautiful surroundings. Recently added the Terrace can be found on the hotel’s ground floor and offers an outdoor relaxation space.
