We arrived very early in the morning when we flew from Amsterdam to Hong Kong and where due to fly from Hong Kong to Brisbane around midnight again.
Not an option to stay in and around the airport with a toddler and after a night in the airplane with barely any sleep, so we decided to pick an Airport Hotel in Hong Kong to get some rest before boarding our next night flight.
The Regal Hong Kong Airport Hotel was all we needed
Lucky us we choose the Regal Hong Kong Airport Hotel which is the closest ( actually attached ) to Hong Kong Airport.
When we arrived at Hong Kong Airport, we discovered Cathay Pacific lost our stroller ( after a long story, they found it – still in Amsterdam -, it got send to Australia and at the end, they handled the case very good )
But this is stuff you don’t want to deal with after a long flight with a toddler. So without any sleep, hassle around with people who had no clue where our stroller was in the first place, we went through customs and straight to the Regal Airport Hotel, which is connected to the Terminal.
This is really convenient as we didn’t have to leave the airport at all, no fussing around with transport, and just straight to our shower, bath and bed ( really all you need and desperately want after an 11-hour flight with a toddler 😉
When we arrived, the lady at the check-in desk was super friendly and efficient and we could go straight to our room, where we did exactly what we looked forward to: Bad – Shower – Bed.
Although he had a good sleep on the plane, Sem passed out straight away as he was completely worn out (lucky us) So we set our alarms to wake us up 4 hours later so we got sort of a rest, but not being completely out of our biological rhythm.
As we paid Media Rates for our stay at the Regal Hong Kong Airport Hotel, we also had some work to do ( talking to the manager – who gave us a tour around the hotel, shooting pictures and forming our own impression and opinion )
Whoalla; The result is this article. So here is some more general information about the Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong.
