Nestled between busy Tsim Sha Tsui and Jordan, Residence G Hong Kong is a truly boutique hotel, offering just 29 quaint rooms that are affordable yet chic. Its modern interiors and trendy vibe make this a popular bolthole among urbanites looking for a short stay in the city. We check into the hotel's biggest and most indulgent accommodation – the Penthouse. Here's what to expect...
The hotel is hidden away down a narrow alleyway and requires a bit of searching to get to, which makes it feel more appealing for those looking for a quiet stay. There's a small check-in desk on the first floor, a communal lounge and a terrace.
There are six room types at Residence G, starting from 206 square feet. The highest floor is home to the penthouse which boasts an impressive 808 square feet with a living area, kitchen, two bathrooms and a bedroom. It's an ideal space to hold parties and the hotel even offers a dedicated package for group gatherings.
The loft-like space had a warm ambiance to it with wooden and dark-toned furnishings throughout.
Essentially, the penthouse has all you need to make entertaining all the easier thanks to its sprawling open-plan space and convenient facilities.
On the ground floor of the hotel, neighbourhood favourite Scarlett Café & Wine Bar is actually part of the same hospitality group as Residence G, R&B Lab. We headed to the restaurant for dinner.

The French-inspired restaurant welcomes with friendly staff and delectable dishes that include the baked camembert, beef tartare and sweet succulent duck leg.
If you're looking for an urban stay with quick access to everything you need including dining, shopping and proximity to nearby tourist neighbourhoods, Residence G is an affordable and quiet option in the heart of the city.
