Tel: 852 2894 8888's insider take:

Perhaps the only moderately priced Mandarin Oriental property in existence, this 30-year-old tower is big with business travelers and tour groups. But the reasonable rates aren't the only draw here. The location in Causeway Bay means it's close to shops, restaurants, and Victoria Park—not to mention the raunchy nightlife in Wanchai and the horse races at Happy Valley. And the 862 rooms are perfectly pleasant, in a blandly cheerful cruise-ship-cabin sort of way (molded window seats, patterned wall-to-wall carpeting, bright-colored bed and sofa cushions). The indoor tennis courts and the solicitous staffers might make you forget—momentarily—that you're not at the Landmark.
