Features

The Mira Hong Kong is in a busy area named Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon peninsula. Once you enter the front door of Mira, you would be taken away by its stylish designs. Coupled with tinted glasses, the waves on the walls and ceiling at the lobby gave excellent first impressions. This theme is extended to the rest of the hotel.

Apart from its designs, the best that The Mira Hong Kong can offer is its prime location. Location, location, location! It is at a very good location. However, what Mira cannot offer is sea view as it is blocked by its next door neighbour THE One shopping mall. The Mira also offers little urban view as it is limited by its height.

Location

Located at the fringe of Tsim Sha Tsui shopping area, The Mira Hong Kong offers shopping and outdoor leisure experiences at once. It is on Nathan Road, make this hotel extremely convenient. The hotel is surrounded by thousands of shops and restaurants. You can get to most tourist attractions from the hotel by feet, buses or MTR (Hong Kong’s underground subway). The Mira Hong Kong is at one of the busiest area and golden mile of Kowloon.

Attractions

Opposite to The Mira Hong Kong is the Kowloon Park, a leisure and historical site for the general public. A bit similar to New York’s Central Park on the Manhattan Island, Kowloon Park is a rectangular strip of urban lung on the Kowloon peninsula. The Miramar shopping mall and THE One shopping malls are just next door to the hotel. If you are interested in Hong Kong's monuments, there is one building just two doors away from the hotel (North of Miramar shopping center).

The Mira Hong Kong is about 20 to 25 minutes walking distance from the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, where you can enjoy the stunning view of the Victoria Harbour. The walk from the hotel to waterfront is very entertaining as you would walk pass Kowloon Mosque, K11 art mall, iSquare shopping mall, Chungking Mansions, and plenty of hotels including Holiday Inn, Sheraton and The Peninsula before you reach the waterfront. Once you are at the waterfront, there are even plenty more to see.

Heading North from the Mira hotel would take you to Jordan, where Temple Street and the Jade Market are based. Heading East would take you to Tsim Sha Tsui East. There are plenty to see in all four directions from The Mira Hong Kong.

Gossips

The Mira Hong Kong has been a well-known but certainly not famous name in Hong Kong. In 2013, one man by the name of Edward Snowden has literally put this hotel on the map. The Mira Hong Kong was the hotel that Mr. Snowden stayed in when he did THE interview. Although the event caught worldwide media attention, it goes without saying that the opinions and actions of Mr. Snowden had little to do with the hotel.
