Accor Opens the 550-room Ibis Hong Kong Sheung Wan,
the Second Ibis in Hong Kong

August 29, 2012
- And then there were two in Hong Kong! Ibis has recently opened its second hotel in this archipelago that has been dubbed the Pearl of the East. It was an exciting challenge and the ibis teams in this uncannily buoyant part of the world pulled it off.

This hotel is in the heart of Hong Kong’s business, cultural and retail district, and a short walk from the Mass Transit Railway station, and from Macau Ferry Pier ferry terminal and heliport. The impressive building houses 550 up-to-the-minute contemporary rooms inter alia featuring bay windows, high ceilings, new bedding and free Wi-Fi access, i.e. all ibis’ hallmark quality standards.

Tony Yau, a spokesman for Common Empire Development, the company that owns the building, remarked, “This hotel is in a part of Hong Kong where demand for budget hotel rooms is strong. Ibis has established a worldwide reputation, so we are confident that ibis hotels in this region will prosper.”

Focus on Hong Kong
Hong Kong is the largest of the People's Republic of China’s two Special Administrative Regions (SARs) by size and population (the other is Macao). It is home to 7 million people (called Hong Kongers), serves as one of China’s import and export ports, and is a world-class financial and business hub.
