A review of Hyatt Centric, North Point, Hong Kong – formerly Hotel Vic

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel but first time for a review by me!  It was in December so there was a great Christmassy feel to the hotel.
Hyatt Centric is located in North Point on Hong Kong Island.  North Point is becoming more popular as a place to stay.  We like it here because it’s not as busy as Central or Kowloon.  Everywhere is easily accessible from here, the MTR and a ferry terminal are within five minutes walking distance.  There is also a tram line nearby.

The hotel is split into two towers, East and West.  The west tower has the restaurants situated in it, the Cruise Bar on 23rd floor, The Farmhouse cafe on the 2nd floor and a coffee shop.  In the east tower there are the rooftop infinity pool and fitness centre.  There is an open air area on the 23rd floor for drinks and nibbles with fantastic views of the Hong Kong skyline.  I would say this hotel is a good four star hotel, if you consider the Marriot, Grand Hyatt and The Icon are five stars.

The rooms are fairly spacious for Hong Kong hotels and all have floor to ceiling windows with views across the harbour.

The lobby is airy and spacious and checking in and out is a breeze with friendly and helpful staff.

The first three floors are taken up with shops.  Designer shoes and jewellery and all the high end cosmetics.

There is a lovely waterfront promenade just outside the hotel where you can see the local people doing their exercises and tai chi.

North Point is the hub for many Chinese and Asian restaurants.

The bathroom is on the small side but everything is well appointed and they have thought of everything!  Even a great make-up mirror.

The Farmhouse Cafe

We had a buffet breakfast here every day.  There is a fantastic hot food section where eggs are cooked as you like.  Also fresh fruit, cereals, all kinds of bread, cold meats and cheeses are served.

Magnificent Ginger Bread House in the Coffee shop

Up on the 23rd floor there is a roof top bar with open seating area, plus Cruise restaurant which has a diverse Asian menu.  It’s a great place to start your evening, overlooking the harbour with a cocktail.

The rooftop infinity pool 

It’s always nice to stay in a hotel with a pool especially in the summer in Hong Kong.  There aren’t that many hotels with decent outside pools, so this is a bonus!  Well, unless you can afford the high end five star hotels of course.

We will definitely be using this hotel again during our travels to Hong Kong
