The Anonymous Widower

Of All the Hotels in all the World

There are some luxuries in my life that I will never forego.

One is to stay in the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong when I am in the territory.  They always treat you so well.

This is the view from my room.

One of the most stunning parts of the room is the bathroom, which is all marble and glass.

Note the central basin with a swivelling mirror.  They even supply four bathrobes; two warm ones and two in silk!

But you don’t go to the Mandarin Oriental for the facilities.  It is for the staff.  They aren’t just good, but they must be the best in the world.

As you know I’m a coeliac and they took care to note this and provided me with a proper Chinese translation, so that I would not be glutened in a restaurant.  More of that later.

But the hotel is expensive.  On the other hand, if you are in Hong Kong and want to savour the hospitality of the Mandarin, just go into the Captain’s Bar by reception and have a drink.  The prices are about the same as a reasonable hotel anywhere.
