The Mira Hong Kong is located in the heart of bustling Hong Kong in the Tsim Sha Tsui suburb. Here’s our thoughts on or stay.
Originally the building was home to the Hotel Miramar which was completely renovated and redesigned by Miami-based Interior designer Charles Allem in 2008. Allem kept many of the original hotel’s including the stunning chandeliers found throughout – a big favourite of ours.

Around the local area to the hotel there are many options for shopping with malls on every corner, with a great selection of restaurants and bars also be found nearby. The hotel itself is home to Michelin-rated restaurants: Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira and WHISK offering some of the finest culinary experiences the city has to offer. There is also an award-winning spa, gym, stunning pool with it’s own starry light show and a number of busy bars to keep you going well into the night.
The Mira Hong Kong is huge with 492 rooms, attracting holiday makers from all over Asia and the world. There are a number of room configurations with multiple colour schemes that can be chosen by the guests. The rooms are beautifully designed and kept intentionally simple and modern.
The huge buffet breakfast at Yamm is worth every cent (we were lucky enough to have breakfast included with the room), with everything you could possibly want on the menu. There’s free wi-fi throughout the hotel, and check-out is done quickly via their iPad service at the front desk. The staff were wonderful especially the at the concierge desk, we recommend asking them for their day itinerary for Macau – a day of fun in Hong Kong’s neighboring city. When the time has come to return to the sanctuary of the hotel, you’re welcomed by doormen who’ve greeted you by name since you checked-in and the cool, distinctively perfumed foyer that altogether make you immediately forget about the bustle and smell of the city outside.
For those who prefer moving images, here’s a video walk through of the Mira Hong Kong.
