The Fleming Hotel, Hong Kong

The Fleming Hotel, Hong Kong

 

Inspired by the city’s iconic Star Ferry, The Fleming captures the Hong Kong of yesteryear with a faultless blend of art moderne, maritime and retro-industrial design. On the outside, it stands out over its neighbours thanks to a Broadway-esque bulb sign and tall, factory-style windows that nod to Hong Kong’s postwar glory days. Cross the threshold, however, and you’ll be swept into nautical nirvana by streamlined curves, porthole mirrors and brushed brass lamps – details borrowed from the hotel’s harbour-crossing muse. As if it weren't culturally engaged enough, the Fleming's also in Wan Chai, the district immortalised in Richard Mason’s 1957 bestseller, The World of Suzie Wong. Mason's Wan Chai was louche and gritty, but this melting pot of a district has since gone up in the world, becoming one of Hong Kong's hippest hangouts in the process.
