The Upper House

Mar 19, 2019

It’s no small feat that the Upper House has managed to stay cutting-edge despite turning 10 this year. Little wonder, really, considering how the Andre-Fu–designed hotel continues to tick all the boxes for design acolytes. Its 117 tastefully styled rooms (which start from 67 square meters for a standard room) are especially spacious for Hong Kong, and several are corner suites offering jaw-dropping panoramic island and harbor views. Instagram opportunities abound here, ranging from the famously huge bathrooms (and incredible bathtub views) to the private dining alcoves at Café Grey Deluxe that extend over the city 49 floors up. The elegant yet intimate book- filled Sky Lounge on the same floor, meanwhile, also regularly hosts casual discussions by renowned tastemakers such as Yabu Pushelberg and Christian Louboutin. — Shamilee Vellu
