What pure joy to stay at the Indigo for 11 nights in early January. The hotel is in an excellent location in Wanchai, very close to the Wanchai Market, a metro station, bus lines and numerous good restaurants and activities that are within walking distance in this historic neighborhood. The area is bustling, but not nearly as busy or noisy as Central, but close enough to get there in quick fashion.
I received an exceptionally kind and warm welcome on my very late evening arrival. The reception and bell staff including Daniel, Kahlen and Osiris made certain that I was made aware of what the hotel had to offer and that if I had any questions or needed anything to just ask - and I certainly did! My room - on the 16th floor (1604), was beautifully appointed. I particularly appreciated the Nespresso machine and tea maker as well as the great variety of for purchase snacks available from the fridge and snack drawer. The wine selection was well above average. A lovely gift of delicious macaroons in a silk chinese box on a lacquer tray awaited me. The room was a good size, and included a sofa, coffee table, of course the bed and an excellent writing desk which was complete with USB charger ports (no need to use current converters, etc. for camera/phone charging). The information book in the room provided a very thorough listing of great activities, good places to shop and wonderful places to eat. Oh...did I tell you about the amazing rain-head shower? It was pure heaven after a 16 hour flight and each day thereafter! The bathroom was complete with wonderful luxurious big towels and deluxe soaps and an exceptional variety of amenities not normally found (toothbrush/paste, razor/shaving cream, etc.). The bathrobe was made of a lovely cotton. Very thoughtfully, the hotel includes an umbrella, shoeshine and sewing kits, and a large sturdy tote bag (for those market purchases).
The hotel reception desk employees were always available and extremely helpful in providing and/or gathering information about places that I wanted to go or where I could find something very specific. They knew and if they didn't...they found out. Every time I left the hotel, the door was opened for me and every time I entered the hotel (many times throughout the day and night) the door was opened to welcome me back and an elevator was called. Their smiles were ever present and very much appreciated.
I have traveled world-wide and have stayed in many fine hotels in major cities, however I must say that my stay at the Hotel Indigo was one of the finest hotel stays that I have ever encountered. The location, hotel style, room design and comfort of the Indigo are important considerations and it has them all. But...the hotel has more...it has a superior quality of staff that takes pride in their hotel and in themselves and it shows! A special thank you to Daniel, Kahlen, Osiris, Ben and all of the front desk staff for making my trip to Hong Kong so very, very special! Thank you for getting information for me, calling taxis, and for being so very warm and friendly!
Do yourself a favor and experience the Indigo the next time you are in Hong Kong!

From the time we arrived to the time we departed we were not disappointed with the hotel, its amenities or the staff. The size of the room was more than adequate. The lift service was good with little waiting time.
The breakfast buffet was limited but the quality of food and service was excellent.
The hotel is in a location close to the MTR (5 min walk), buses stop 25m from the front door, and a taxi never took longer than 5 minutes to arrive. The Wan Chai star ferry to Kowloon is only 10 minutes walk.
The tiny size of the mini bar fridge, which could not even hold the milk carton when opened, or any goods we may have wished to store, was the only disappointment.
It may be a little costly for a long stay (we stayed 10 nights) but the convenience of the location made up for that.

The room design is Indigo-like very fresh and hip. The hotel is still quite new and this shows in overall appearance.
The lobby is rather small, but sufficient. Overall, the Indigo is a rather small hotel. It has many floors but only few rooms per floor.
The location in Wan Chai is not in the middle of things. It takes a walk to the metro or tram station where some local restaurants are available.
The amenities as an IHG Royal Platinum Ambassador was sub-par to other IHG hotels. We didn't get any room upgrade. Only special amenity was a drink voucher and late check out.
Would visit again if I want to stay on the Hong Kong Island side. But of course, the other IHG ICs on the Kowloon side are on a different level and I would always prefer those if available.
