Where I Stayed: Hotel Icon, Hong Kong

I'm working on a weird timeline at the moment, writing about things that have happened, are happening and will happen, so bear with me on this crazy journey backwards and forwards through time.

Right now I'm taking you back to January (I know, I know) and am going to tell you about our stay at Hotel Icon, Hong Kong.

After experiencing the relaxation and beaches of Philippines, we decided to stop off for a few days in Hong Kong. It was a great way to ease ourselves back into city living and cooler temperatures, before we hit the literally freezing reality of home.

I'd like to say I chose this hotel because it was designed by prolific local architect Rocco Yim, with interiors by Terence and William Lim. Instead my choice was based on something a lot less glamourous. I went on Trip Advisor, searched for hotels in Hong Kong, filtered by those who offered free wi-fi and voila! Hotel Icon was chosen. Obviously, free wi-fi was not the only plus point. The reviews were excellent and the hotel looked, for want of a better word - amazing!
