According to Chinese mythology, there isn’t a man in the moon - there’s a rabbit. If you didn’t know this cultural fact before check-in, you’ll have grasped it by the time you’ve left. There are bunnies everywhere (including three pink ones flying over reception). There’s also a profusion of peonies – on carpets, curtains and mosaic floors - plus lots of lunar-themed style references. It’s done with such cheerful style, however, it manages to stay on the enjoyable side of kitsch.

The 492-room hotel received some unexpected publicity when Edward Snowden retreated there in 2013 and proceeded to spill the beans on America’s spy network. (If you want to assess room quality watch Oliver Stone’s Snowden, which was filmed in the hotel). It prides itself on its design elements. Some of these verge on the weirdly cinematic - you can easily imagine Snowden skulking around its dark maze of low-ceilinged, stripy-carpeted and mirrored corridors.

Like the location, the hotel does a good job of combining local flavour with a cheerful slickness. The corridors have Wan Chai-related art works, most of the funky knick-knacks (colourful kung-fu figures, Hong Kong-themed cushions, fish-themed bath-mats and tea sets) are for sale and each room has a directory listing the history of Wan Chai, plus recommended places to visit.
