Designed with a quirkiness that will appeal to all who find the majority of hotel interiors a little staid, the Mira Moon is a boutique hotel in the heart of the bustling shopping district of Causeway Bay. The Mid-Autumn Moon festival inspires the décor, so expect to find bunnies and peony motifs aplenty for a bold, colorful look that goes all out. More than just a pretty exterior, handy tech amenities and fine service make plenty of fans of the hotel.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel is not necessarily best equipped for business travellers who might find the lack of dedicated amenities—media center, executive lounge, etc.—a drawback.
Intricately detailed motifs, carved wood panelling, bright textiles and floor to ceiling windows (in most rooms above the New Moon level) contribute to create a room experience that feels special for a mid-range property. Rooms are big by city standards but if you want more space, upgrade to the extravagant Moonshine Suite.
Rooms come with a handy portable Wi-Fi device to bring with you around Hong Kong.
Considering the relatively modest price of rooms at the Mira Moon, it’s a surprise to find such a chic bathroom. Spa-like in their design, most bathrooms feature free standing bathtubs, something of a rarity.
Located on the fifth floor, the lobby introduces guests to the hotel’s quirky style. It’s a peaceful—if aesthetically busy—place to hang out.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Service is a big positive here and the concierge will be happy to offer recommendations for the many excellent restaurants around Causeway Bay.
The well-equipped fitness center is open 24 hours.
The Supergiant Tapas & Cocktail Bar is a stylish, laidback restaurant bar perfect for those evenings when traipsing Causeway Bay doesn’t appeal. The menu matches Spanish tapas with cocktails inspired by Chinese mythology—definitely a winning fusion.
The generous daily happy hour runs 16:00 till 21:00
The Champagne Bar comes with harbour views and plenty of intimate romantic vibes.
The hotel isn’t on the busiest of streets by Causeway Bay standards, but the bustle is close by which makes exploring the neighborhood on foot the best way to discover the neighborhood’s myriad restaurant and shopping opportunities. For travel further afield, Causeway Bay MTR is well connected on the Island Line.
Try nearby Din Tai Fung (12-minute walk) and feast on dumplings but make sure to head there before the lunchtime rush. For more classic Hong Kong cuisine, historic noodle shop Ho Hung Kee (8-minute walk) has you covered. Some of the cheapest Michelin starred cuisine you can find, it’s a must.
WTF (Worth The Fuss) (5-minute walk) serves excellent cocktails and has a big range of whiskies to lure you in from the bland expanse of Morrison Road. Beer fans will find a range of fine tipples at Coedo Taproom (11-minute walk).
